To be honest T.Gal I can't remember - 27 rings a bell but I can't be certain. It was literally the first week I started investing - in fact it made me want to invest. I kept watching the news and seeing how the markets go up and down during these big disasters or events but always end up coming back to where they started. I'd been saying for years if only I had money to make money off these things. Well it just so happened i had about 5k sitting around so I threw it in my TFSA and went at it. I learned alot.... First thing I learned was that it wasn't so easy as I thought. You need to keep your eye on the big picture and have the ca-who-na's to believe in your decisions. If I recall it dropped a bit after I bought and I sold at a loss.. then I bought in again and held on a bit longer but then it dropped and I sold again. I bought and sold that thing 5-6 times mostly all on nerves.. I came out about even on my BP trades. If I would have held on and believed in my decision I would have made alot more money.
Regarding TRQ - Its not so much as beat up as not having yet realized its potential I'm hoping it will return 50-100% in the next year from where it is now
