"On December 4, 2009, Gold opened at $1207.40. I saw it trading around this level for the early part of the day, but then the price started dropping and began to tumble after the Payrolls came out.
I sold 100 ounces at $1205.65, set my stop loss to $1215, set my take profit at $1185 and walked away from my computer. Gold fell to $1,165 in this whopper of a day and my total earnings were $4,065 USD. Hey, not bad for a day’s work!"
