Fast Money's Gold Trades

In the space, I like Gold Fields, says Tim Seymour. They’ve had a couple different discoveries. But all miners are not created equal.

If I were to play the space I’d do it with gold and not the miners, counters Jeff Macke. The miners won’t necessarily go up with the spot price of the precious metal.

Remember that 13-F filings are as of March 31st and the world looked very different at the end of March then the do now.

However, Karen Finerman issues a note of caution. She says, "remember that 13-F filings are as of March 31st and the world looked very different at the end of March then it does now."
