    And you likely paid for the trade to buy the trade. And paid to sell the trade. So you likely lost some money for the trade costs.

    It you want to take profits if it hits $33, you put in a limit order to sell.

    You told it to sell if it goes below $33 so it was hit right away.
    Thanks for the response. I am learning this the hard way. But all in all, it's good.

    Moving from vanguard to a self directed Ira and ROBINHOOD would be nice. Need to investigate this.

    Try out collective2.com web site. It supposedly is a good tool to watch trends and consider where you need to place your resources. It's not too costly for a stock trend service. Have yet to try it myself.

    Question from a dummy:
    what is the effect of a fed hike with the price of gold?
    if interest rates go up, will the price of gold go up? Or is it inversely correlated?

    You are far from a dummy.

    How a Rate Hike Could Impact Gold
    How a Rate Hike Could Impact Gold | Investopedia

    "When interest rates are hiked the U.S. dollar appreciates, which leads to gold moving lower. Investors have sought gold recently because it is seen as a safe haven, there isn’t much interest in the fixed-income market and stocks are volatile. Once the Federal Reserve backed off on its four expected rate hikes for 2016, gold skyrocketed delivering its biggest quarterly gain in 30 years in the first quarter of 2016. Adding fuel to gold’s rally was the Federal Reserve not ruling out the possibility of negative interest rates. However, conditions have changed. ..."

    In general when interest rates are rising it usually is a sign that the economy is growing, and that tends to help the dollar, which puts pressure on the price of gold. That's what has happened recently, but it's not always a clean correlation.

    You can see that recently interest rates (yields I should say) and gold have been going in different directions.
