I'm guessing that precious metals are going to be somewhat flat in October. I think there is a lot of uncertainty due to the upcoming U.S. elections. I'm looking for a significant change post election. If Romney is elected, I expect a drop in metals due to new excitement over a change in course in American economic policy and anticipated improvement in the stock market. If Obama is re-elected, I'm looking for metals to take a big jump as the policies that have been driving silver and gold's upward movement will be locked in for another 4 years. Right now, I'm straddling silver. Anyone else using options?
