Gold received a lot of coverage last year following its fall from the September 2011 high. Many are suggesting that the gold bull market has come to an end. In ‘Still Golden’ (page 40), Ben Mountifield takes the opposing position, asserting gold has a long way to run and is still in a bull phase, presenting an excellent opportunity.
Also in this issue Ben Power captures a rare interview with David Ryan, who is one of the most successful traders to emerge from the stables of William O’Neil. David spoke to Ben about the performance of his fund, the secrets to his trading success and longevity in the market, and his stand-out trades (page 28).
If you’re a private trader and would like to be interviewed for our Trader’s Story profile, we would love to hear from you. Please email editor@YTEmagazine.com with a little about yourself, including how many years you have been trading and what you trade.
Happy reading and profitable trading.
