I finally had to add this one to my CAPS portfolio. This is one of my most painful stories about the one that got away! :) Anyone who is invested in gold and silver will remember the May/June 2006 correction like it was yesterday. It was such a deep and painful correction, that it overwhelmed my conviction that the metals were ultimately going higher, and out of fear of further losses I sold massive amounts of my precious metals holdings. Most stocks I got back into soonafter when I realized my mistake. But SSRI had stung me too badly, so I stayed out. I sold at $16 something, and now it trades above $36! If only my conviction then had been as strong as it is now. Gold to $1,650 on its way to $2,000, silver to $50 on its way to $100!

Wow I know this is old news but I wish I read it before I panic sold yesterday and then felt foolish this morning (lower case "f") and got back in at higher prices.
