I agree. also congress will be in session starting next week. History tell's when congress is in session it is best to be in cash or if a gambler short most everything(joking). I sold my tza in the am today, but the stock market was up today on relatively low volume.
I read that gold sometime's run contrary to the stock market. I do not like to hold a miner(political risk),but RGLD is safer than a miner in that this corporation only has a few employee's and is a gold streamer. However it may go down with the stock market but some folk's say that gold is real money from centuries past. Anyway I am more comfortable with a corporation that pay's an increasing dividend than holding the physical gold.
