Rik Green's Investors Forum Growth Portfolio down 1% in October, 12% YTD

Rik Green's growth portfolio <Port-faux-lio> lost 1.2% in October while the S&P500 gained 4.5%.  CVX which is 38% of the portfolio's value was down 1% and GG which is 22% of the value dropped 2% during the month.  Gold was flat and silver gained 1% and 8%.  PSLV, PHYS, CEF, CDE, and AUY all moved about the same as their underlying precious metal.  SLW was down 8% which is odd because silver was up 1%.  

Year to date the port-faux-lio is down 12.3% and the S&P 500 is up 23.2%.  Gold and silver ended October at $1,323 and $21.91, respectively which is down 21% and 28% year to date.

In mid-May and August the port-faux-lio traded some CVX shares for more gold and silver related investments.  The trade does not looks so good right now as CVX is currently about flat with its sale price, but SLW, CDE, AUY, and PHYS are down.  This is a good time to triple down, because CVX is still over $120 per share and the precious metals are beaten down.
