The coin’s reverse features a classic DC Comics image of Superman bounding forward with his arm outstretched and his cape sprawling behind him. The outer edge of the design bears the inscriptions 2015, FINE SILVER 9999 ARGENT PUR (“pure silver” in French), and 20 DOLLARS.

The obverse bears Susanna Blunt’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, with the inscriptions CANADA, ELIZABETH II, and D.G. REGINA circling the image. D.G. REGINA is short for the Latin words, Dei Gratia Regina, meaning, “By the Grace of God, Queen.”

    Just had lunch with my son and his girlfriend….his degree is Info Systems Management and he wants to get certified in Cyber Security. Those were the programs he bought this past Christmas on sale…to get certified for that.
    I love his girlfriend….she actually is making sure he is doing good, something I have wondered about given all the time is he spending with her. She even knew his grades, something he would never tell me….she said he had all A’s and B’s in his classes.

    I sold half my position in UVXY this morning…couldn’t pass up 18% in two days. I still have half position and will establish a very accommodative trailing stop…plan on holding this position for a long move if the market remains in a downtrend from recent highs and adding other short positions when I know more. I think it may take a few fits and starts in the S&P until it retraces significantly. From what I am seeing I sort of expect an eventually pullback to 200, 198, or 195 on the SPY. From there it is anyone’s guess….FED speak seems to reign supreme nowadays and the fundamentals are horrible. A lot to watch…OIL, High Yield, Dollar, GOLD, Earnings, FED, China, Carry Trade, Credit Defaults, like BTU for example, etc.
    ***Warning**** What I expect means nothing….I will take what the market gives me, what I expect, or what I think means absolutely ZERO. The market will do what the market will do. The key to success in the markets and trading in particular is winning the battle of the mind.
