Or perhaps the gloom and doom prevented you from pulling the trigger. Maybe bear down on charts indicator to tell when to get in and when to get off. Most of the time market changes always hit you with 2 by 4 to let you know to get off. Just my opinion.
I took the money and ran. Been a long dry spell sitting and holding. Looking for a good downturn to jump back in. I've. been burnt in May taking the dividend. Will wait and see what happens.
The only thing that holds me back for pulling out is the Dividend. Rd is struggling and showing sign of short term overbought and no buyback from the company. The general market is good even though they are in the lighter volume. I wonder if this is the end high ($69.00) for RD. RD is unpredictable because it don't normally piggy back with SP500 or the Energy Index. I am watching closely the energy sector Index, the moment it pulls back then I am out. GLTA.
Still all in - 20% Gold 80% RDSa
Staying flexible but do not see any immediate reasons to sell. VIX is low and not showing anxiety, good job report last Friday, FED still has our back, Japan is really pumping in the bucks plus Europe is starting their own QE. Going with the uptrend ........ GLTA
I dumped all of RD on Friday and added to gold position. Decided that the remaining meat on the bone was too rare to risk getting sick. Might throw down a quick bet before ex-div but the hair on my neck is starting to stand up. Got the feel that something is coming and it ain't pretty. JMHO.
