I am currently on vacation in Fla for next 2 weeks, will check in every so often when I can. It’s a bittersweet vacation as my Father is seriously ill. I solicit your prayers during this time. In the meantime hang in there, keep accumulating more Gold and Precious Metals in any form. Mr. Market is being kind and giving us another chance. In regards to U.S. stocks remember government figures are not always truthful and subject to steep revisions after the fact. The shoe is still getting ready to drop. In the meantime, make a little to the upside. Place your stops carefully. Play options to reduce your risk. Talk to you when I get a chance- Good Investing- jschulmansr
