I think it is more a issue of timing. With a volatile market like this, it goes up alot, and goes down alot. To buy for longer terms will not make you alot of money right now. Brilliant times for short term trading or day trading whatever you like to call it.
Made good profits on calls re- AGL,GFI,IMP sold last at 9.10am ,am afraid to take positions before week end.Other share sold down in sympathy should recover by Tuesday at latest.Normally would have taken PUTS at this stage,but with week end decay not worth it and weakening Rand price will amply cover Dollar declines in resources.Yes we are in a BULL MARKET if only a with a South African flavour!
