I'm like a walking ETF. I own about 70 individual equities in the metals mining and exploration space, with the vast majority of that focused upon gold and silver. They are not all equal weighted, by any means, with individual holdings ranging from 15% down to 1% of my total. When I was acquiring these positions primarily in 2005-2006, this was the approach that I considered most appropriate for my investment objectives. [more]
All the perplexities, confusion and distresses in America arise not from defects in the constitution or confederation, nor from want of honor or virtue, as much from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit, and circulation.
I was selling portions of some positions pretty aggressively into that recent upsurge in gold, silver, and related equities. I told my self I was going guard a 10% cash position on the way up, but I kept selling. I sold until I raised about a 15% cash position, which on a percentage basis is now a bit more following the recent sell-off. [more]
