Losses mitigated

Well we lost money on the gold.  But my consolation is that we sold close to the recent peak, and that I correctly identified it as a peak at the time and the spot price has gone down since.


  1. As I said before:

    "Hi Steve

    Thanks for your invitation to follow your blog.

    Sorry: it's a 'No'.

    1) I don't follow blogs becasue it distarcts me from my work
    2) It seems a bit self-seeking to ask for followers
    3) I had a look at your blog, and on an aesthetci level it didn't work for me. The large black type on a white back ground made me feel I was being shouted at.
    4) Similarly, the content and tone made me feel I was being shouted at
    5) Without having studied your wroting in detail, I get the impression that you believe it is possible to lose your salvation by not enduring or by having your name blotted out. These would make it a doctine of salvation by works rather than by the grace of God. I don't believe you can be 'un-born again' or 'unadopted' or 'dis-elected from the foundation of the world'. I know one should not ONLY read blogs you agree with, and I accept that I may have got you wrong with my brief skim read and apologise if this is so. But 1 to 4 would still apply. "
