Gold Q&A: Answers to our Subscribers' Most Pressing Questions

  • Which trading platform do you use?

    November 9, 2012, 12:00 PM

    Which trading platform do you use to place your trades? Does this platform have the option to place short and long trades? I really want to follow your instructions by doing it on the same platform.

  • With $100,000, what percentage of my portfolio should I put in mining stocks?

    November 9, 2012, 12:00 PM

    If I have $100K to invest in precious metals, what percentage do you suggest to place in mining stocks and junior mining stocks? Thank you.

  • Do you look at pre- and after-market volumes of precious metals?

    November 9, 2012, 12:00 PM

    Given that volume is an important indicator, I was wondering:

    1. Do you look at pre-market and/or after-market volumes at all?
    2. If so, what use do you make of those numbers?

    I tend to look at these regularly, and noted today that the after-market volume in GDX was considerable. It left me wondering whether you include those numbers in your daily assessment of volume.

  • I’m confused about your proprietary tools. Can you help me out?

    October 26, 2012, 12:00 PM

    I am a trial subscriber of SP starting yesterday. I am quite confused about the proprietary tools and information you provided.

    • [1] Does one need basic knowledge of statistics to understand what you are actually doing?
    • [2] There is a myriad of tools such as the correlation matrix and SP indicators and the Gold and Silver ranking tool. How do I put all of these tools together and form a trading method? Do I start with, for example, the Gold ranking tool and look for gold stocks to trade, and then apply the correlation matrix and SP indicators to find the right candidate? Is there a flowchart, for example? How does one begin to play the concepts and begin using the tools?
    • [3] Are the tools interrelated or do they work independently?
  • Would a stock market crash be followed by a decline in gold prices?

    October 19, 2012, 12:00 PM

    One vocal analyst is loudly predicting a stock market crash quickly followed by a panic flight to the dollar (and a gold dive). Your thoughts on this would be much appreciated.

  • How do elections influence gold?

    October 19, 2012, 12:00 PM

    Are there any recognizable price patterns that occur right before and after elections that we could profit from?

  • Why do you sometimes not suggest opening positions for moves you perceive as highly probable?

    October 19, 2012, 12:00 PM

    Sometime you are pretty sure about a price move but at the same time don't suggest a speculative position or even discourage opening one. So how is this really? Are you really sure of the move (then suggest opening a speculative position) or are you not sure and that's why a speculative position is not suggested?

  • Do you recommend 30-60% of total assets be held in silver?

    October 12, 2012, 12:00 PM

    I have finished digesting your article on portfolio structure, which is quite interesting. I am eager to see your Portfolio Assistant in operation.

    As far as holding physical metals, it appears that you recommend 30-60% of total physical assets held be in silver. Is that correct?
