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.
