Wow- the last few days have been quite interesting- or stressful if you saw your stocks drop like a rock- My gold, uranium, and oil stocks got hammered- In three days, I had a 10% loss- But that’s fine- It’s all part of playing the commodity cycle- The only thing Continue Reading
[2022/4/4] Investing Update
It has really been a while but wow- glad to be back. Teaching and taking care of family really takes time. But very thankful for my job and family- So how was the first quarter of 2022? Quite volatile with supply chain disruptions and the invasion of Ukraine. Fortunately, despite Continue Reading
[2021/12/7] Market Back in to Rally Mode?
Today was a relief- Some gains finally- Yay- Sold some positions because I jumped the gun too early- Will try to get back to 20% cash again- Also, finally bought Costco for my ultra long term portfolio. Only a small amount though. I will build the position slowly. Bought more Continue Reading
[2022/12/6] Gold Crash Over?
Past month was rough with gold and silver mining stocks dropping literallly like a rock- Magna Mining (#MAG) and Hecla Mining (#HL), two of my large long term positions, took such beating that I put more money in and took even more beating- But it’s ok- 20-30% volatility and 50% Continue Reading
[Investing] Mobile Trading
Never thought mobile trading was a good idea because– The screen is too small and you might accidentally press something wrong- Literally, the “fat finger”- But during my trip, I made my first trade while eating at IN-N-OUT. ETrade Interface was easy to use and not as bad as I Continue Reading
[Investing] Gold/Silver Crash?
Whoa- Yesterday was not a fun day for gold/silver- -2% ouch! Thankfully, I had cash. So I bought HL, MUX, AG when they dropped 3-4% and sold at 1% profit- Not bad considering that I had to trade with my phone being outside. Very thankful for apps 😀 I checked Continue Reading

[Investing] Prosper Update
It has been six month since I invested in Prosper- So far my return is 9.21% a drop from about 12%- WHAT HAPPENED?! I just invested more in money in Prosper for diversification purposes- Out of the 64 notes, only 2 are late so it’s good- Once the loans start Continue Reading
[Investing] Retail Frenzy
A article from Zerohedge points out that retail is likely all in– I know that we are almost there as well. I have students trading crypto, FOREX, and gobbling investment forums. And just one or two year ago, they didn’t even know about stocks and markets- It is also scary Continue Reading
Not much action today- Wanted to sell MUX but did not happen- The swing trading is still on- Bought more HL for reversion- I hope to gain 1-2%- I am keeping cash and waiting for more volatility and potential correction- Not the best market to jump in with decreasing breadth Continue Reading
