    Well, that was a total disaster. I haven't lost any money, but my attention to this dea has taught me that when equities go down and gold goes nowhere, gold miners go down even harder. Also, unless there is some specific event/announcement coming, 60 days-to-expiry is too near-dated for long options. Vague assertions about dollar topping (it isn't) aren't an event.
