Indeed it does. That was in 1982 or early 1983, I think. Lessee -- one of them was Nelson Bunker Hunt, and I don't recall the other's name, or even how many brothers there were. Should have stuck to making ketchup.

LATER

Ah, just Googled it. It was 3/27/1980 when Nelson and Herbert missed a margin call and silver plummeted from abut $48 to about $11. How the mighty fall.

And I bought some hot performing airline stock... just before that idiot with Ebola flew back from Africa and devalued all airline stock even though the airline business is booming, fuel price is dropping and projections for growth are excellent.

But I think I will stand pat. Hills and valleys.

Just before the market had a moment I cashed out bought a new truck, tractor, built a 40K garage/barn to put it in and put all my original money back into the bank. Maybe time to go play again.

And today it rallied to close at $16.425. I'd have lost my, um, senses. Or something. It's lost more than 27% in recent months.

You can look at it as a potential opportunity when the trend turns.
