I do not regret selling today, as the majority of the stocks sold were at a profit. I added to my EXK position, in grande fashion, because the laws of mathematics and science dictate it is bottoming out.
Imagine yourself walking into a bank with 1 million dollars. The banker approaches you and says “good day to you Sir. Deposit your money here and in just 5 business days, I will give you back 1.15 million dollars.” You retort “why thank you, kind Sir, I will take you up on your proposal and give you this money right now. Good luck.”
That was my thinking when I bought EXK today.
I cannot tell you why stocks rallied all day, after a horrific open. I can only suggest that someone is intently interested in higher equity prices. Therefore, as the direction is my master, I follow it into the close.
