  2. I now have Calls and/or Bull Put Spreads in all these underlyings, with expiration dates ranging from November to March:
    GLD, SLV, GDX, GDXJ, SLW, and GG.

    So far so good with all these positions.
    We'll see if the current rally in precious metals continues next week.

  5. Ever trade that gold volatility instrument
  6. Never have, no.
    Just checked, and HUI has no options.
    What the difference is between HUI and GDX or GDXJ I'm not sure.
