AEM is a different beast - I have been long gold/silver/oil for over ten years now and only sold some oil plays.......I own AEM as well. I did my checking on my charts for gold and I can tell you this.........I don't know where it goes on Monday as the numbers were non-committal at best. I can always tell 99% accuracy when the gold market is going to turn up but the numbers though positive were not a green light type of showing. Gold and silver however will be solidly higher in 2011 that I can say with full confidence. Mesabi is a real difficult call - I was right about the top but now to find the bottom will be more difficult........but I am very cautious with it right here and do not plan to buy back in - YET. The risk is just too high that it could have a sharp sell-off and the probability for me that it runs up strong is just not there so.......I feel very good about being an observer for now. The risk.......is...just....too....high. I have made other buys however this week in other sectors. Boolean.
I have observed that when people claim manipulation, it usually just means they have no idea what is going on. Very easy to claim manipulation when the real issue is lack of due diligence and of understanding.
