Default What do you think about gold?

What are you opinions on investing in gold right now and why? And what do you think is the best investment vehicle for this?

I'm long gold but I'm always selling premium against it to reduce cost basis. GLD is probably the most liquid straight gold play without using futures.

In my observation, Gold has been on its good peak today. Especially that its been on its five weeks high.

What are you looking for when you sell premium? Can you go on and do that all the time or do you have to wait for the right moment?

Number one is liquidity. If I can't get filled within a penny or two off mid price, per spread, I don't trade it. After that I trade primarily monthly options unless it's a binary event like earnings. I start out as close to 45 days to expiration as I can and I look for high Implied Volatility. When I pick a direction it usually is because I think something is at a price extreme and I'm going against it....meaning I short things that are going up and go long on things that are going down.

Sounds good! When you said you sell premium against your long position in gold does it always mean you use the same strategy?
