I'm glad I made such an impression on this board. For the record, I was never short EGO. I was a frustrated long trying to reconcile what I thought the response in gold should have been going into the fall and what the market was trying to tell me to think. The fear trade was gone. Every time gold should have gone up it went down, until the debt ceiling "crisis" passed, there was a collective sigh in the market, and then what happened? Gold reversed. To tell with that kind of irrationality, I say. The bottom line was I decided I no longer had any interest in trading gold stocks because it requires you basically to sit around waiting for something awful to happen. I have no interest in rooting for the demise of the world's banking system, a collapse of the financial markets, war, Ted Cruz as president . . . or anything else that might skyrocket EGO. Maybe we are all right. Maybe in 2004 it will be DOW 18,000 AND gold at 1800. Or maybe not. Anyway GLTAL.
I knew this day would come. I'm not surprised nor am I "chocking" (I'm still up way more in other stocks than I would be had I stayed in EGO.) Why don't you spend a little less time gloating and a little more time learning how to spell?
