  • When you are buying breakouts, what is your criteria for selling? I like to sell on a big up day and move on. The stop-loss method seems to attract the sale. Example: I sold Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (RRGB) at $20, while it was up. If I would have had stops moved up, it would have already triggered lower. Thoughts?

  • If anybody has been waiting for a pullback in order to get some precious metal exposure, you are now getting your chance. Washington will only be devaluing our dollars more going forward in an attempt to fix their own screw-ups.
