On 9/24 (18 days ago), I wrote (in a private email):

*“…My current ratio of concentration on precious metals markets over stock markets (in terms of funds allocated) is about 25:1 right this minute…. I have dozens of times as much funds in position for a longer-term rebound in metals pricing (relative to my slight bias toward a temporary, sharp rise in stock prices). I am comfortable holding those positions through the weekend or longer.”
*

What is shown above in the top chart are prices for the fund named “SLV” (which is not the exact “spot price” of silver, but does mirror the movement of prices for physical silver). Most of the trades below feature those letters “SLV.” The next most common symbol is “GLD” (for gold). I also made several trades last week based on stock markets (using “VIX”) and a couple this week based on TBT (an index for the US treasury bond market).
