    I am quite sure that “Duane” would like to change his pick to DGP instead of GLD. Of course that is Duane’s decision.

    DGP quarter performance is 46%, GLD quarter performance is 21%, so all depends really on whether you intend to win or not šŸ™‚

    Just saying.

    Likewise I am sure “Cuervos Laugh” would be better to choose short ERY rather than short DUG.

    1 month performance for DUG is 38% versus 59% for ERY. Just saying. Your decision.
