Can You Do Better Trading In And Out Of ETFs Like JNUG?
Anyone who has been holding JNUG since my last article on July 19th is up 7.8% at the closing price of $18.98 on Friday, August 25th. If you follow my comments here on Seeking Alpha, you can see how I trade in and out of various ETFs like JNUG. We follow 32 of them, but I have a particular interest in gold-related ETFs because that is my business.
But I remind traders that there are plenty of trades to profit from besides metals and miners, and that’s what we have been doing. Please go here to see the past 2 weeks of results, with some in and out trades beginning 8/9 and ending 8/29.
As you can see from the results, trading in and out of leveraged ETFs can be profitable. This is not a long-term hold category that investors who come to Seeking Alpha will benefit from, but a unique way of trading that I try and help investors understand. While I do address the long side of trading gold below, the key to trading leveraged ETFs, the topic du jour, is to have a trading plan. If you read through some of my recent articles, I lay out some of the trading rules you should follow before contemplating trading leveraged ETFs. When you trade though, you must follow rules. The most important rule is keeping a stop when wrong.
The above article continues on Seeking Alpha where I write article occasionally. The comments section is worth the read as well. Click the link below to continue reading.
