Real-time AmpGFX – placing close stop loss orders in gold and US bonds (Friday, February 16, 2018, 6:50 AM MT)

I have moved up stop loss orders close to current levels in gold long and US Treasury bond short positions

I want to protect capital in an uncertain environment.

I don’t fully respect this fall in the USD this week as sustainable, moving well against its yield advantage, and I see potential for a significant retracement of golds gains.  I think the market is likely to be still seeking a safe-haven, so my bias is still to be long.  But I don’t want to risk a lot of capital at these levels.

Similarly, I see risk of a significant retracement in US 10 year yields, so want to lock in some gains here.
