Gold did that quick up spike just before the close, sold off and has been trading up and down around the position I took on the green line which went against me (as always) then on the spike would have made a sweet and quick profit, but I was typing out a chart for you folks when it happened and it was so quick I would have had to hit the send button with lightening speed to get much of it. I waited a bit to see if it would go back up but settled for a small profit (gas money) as gold has a habit of making things worse before they ever get better, and also steals my sleep time (like I have any!) from me.
My computer problems turn out to be a five year old Netgear router that should have realistically only lasted 3 to 4 years. It's time to buy another one at Buy.com where I get most of my computer toys. All in all, this computer problem has cost me many thousands in lost trading opportunities. I know I could have knocked out at least $5000 today even if I only got half of what was available. Isn't that always the way it goes. The fatest bird gets away and you have to settle for road kill.
