FAZ was a bad trade. The employment figures today were a complete joke. 1.2 Million potential job seekers "just vanished". The government is able - and allowed by us Lemmings - to manipulate their information any way they like. The HL trade is still OK . It is performing well today and is one of the more disliked mining stocks out there - a good sign given its reserves, lack of debt etc. This seems to be as good a place as any to park money LETS JUST HOPE that the wall street broker I use doesn't use the shares for their own loans. Long term the best place to have my money is close to home and invested in my local economy.
