Strategy Name The Friday Gold Rush
Create a Copy 
This strategy, used by fund manager Andre Stagge, is simple: Buy gold every Thursday evening and keep the position 24 hours. On Friday evening the position is sold. This strategy is based on the fact that firms in the jewellery industry tend to buy their raw material on Friday for delivery during the weekend or Monday morning. The strategy is backtested on GLD (the SPDR Gold Shares ETF) with full capital investment.
