Giving It All Back…

Today was just one of those days… Yesterday, I couldn’t do anything wrong with my trades. There were amazing trends in many markets but I focused on the Gold and Silver markets.

New Machine: NUC8i7HVK

I’m on a new computer kick. For most of my computing career I wanted the biggest, baddest machine I could afford. Generally this meant large towers with lots of expandability options and the fastest processors I could lay my hands on.
