In spending time updating the trade ideas to make room for some new trading candidates, the following Long-term Trade Ideas will be moved to the Completed Trades category. These trades may or may not have hit one or more profit targets but all have either exceeded their previously suggested stop criteria, exceeded any reasonable stop (if none suggested) or simply no longer look compelling from a risk-reward perspective. All completed trades, including all related posts & charts associated with each trade, are indefinitely archived in the Completed Trades category (and respective sub-categories) for future reference.

Long-term Trades are trade or investment ideas that have the potential for significant returns over a longer-term period, typically several months or more. This category of trade ideas might be useful for the longer-term swing trader or investor looking for investment ideas to supplement their existing portfolio and prefers a less active, more hands-off approach to investing. The Long-term Trade ideas can be found under the Trading & Investing Ideas tab on the top menu of

ANV: This trade hit the first target (T1) for a 40% gain and continued about 2/3rds of the way towards the second & final target, gaining as much as 80% from entry before reversing & exceeding both the entry price as well as any reasonable stop.

AUY: Stopped out as per the suggested criteria (SOAPSC) before reaching any price target.

XVX.TO ($CNDX tracking ETF): Exceeded any reasonable stop criteria (none listed). However, XVX.TO looks poised for a reversal and is currently on watch to be added back as a new long trade idea.

EGO: Hit the 4th price target (T4) for a 43% gain & moved slightly above that level before reversing & exceeded both any reasonable stop (none suggested) as well as the original entry price.

GLD, SLV, SIL, GDX & GDXJ: There have been so many posts mentioning objective areas to both add to & book profits on gold, silver and the related mining stock ETFs that the performance is nearly impossible to calculate. Although I continue to skew towards the intermediate & longer-term bullish case for the gold, silver & the miners, these trades will be removed in order to help streamline the watchlist. Frequent updates will continue on all going forward and any or all may be added back as Trade Setups or Active Trades in the near future.

HL: Hit & exceeded the second target (T2), moving about half-way towards the third & final target before reversing & exceeding any reasonable stop (none suggested).

HMY: Hit the third target (T3) for a 43% gain and continued just slightly above T3 before reversing & exceeding any reasonable stop (none suggested).

KGC: Hit T1 for a 13% gain before reversing & exceeding then entry price as well as any reasonable stop.

NEM: Hit & exceeded the second price target before reversing beyond the entry price & any reasonable stop.

WEAT: Stopped out as per suggested criteria (SOAPSC).
