With the broader equity market seeing moderate upside, and the precious metals a little weak, the miners saw some significant weakness. The ETF of GDX settled -1.2% @ $25.88. Near term outlook is bearish.
Suffice to say, the miners are having issues... not least with the precious metals having declined for the past 3 weeks.
*my mid term target is for Gold to test the giant $1000 threshold, and if that is the case, then the miners will be held back.
