With the bad numbers posted on Friday, I think QE3 is more of a possibity. The dollar was weaker on Friday. Gold prices will be higher on Monday. Also, I think we are about to start hearing more about European problems like we did last year and gold was soaring. I realize that the price of gold does not move in relation with miner's stock prices, but it does help to buoy them. It's probably a smart move to buy the stock and write the covered call though. This has saved my butt in regards to JAG.
