Mining stocks are facing an opportunity they haven’t seen many times in the past 8-years![As illustrated in the chart below]
- since the highs in 2011, both the Gold Bugs Index (HUI) and the Gold & Silver Miners (XAU) Index have created a series of lower highs and lower lows along each (1) line.
- The counter-trend rally the past couple of months has each mining index facing long-term falling resistance at each (2).

…Breakout attempts have failed a few times over the past 8-years [but, should they succeed this time]…in breaking out at each (2), both should attract new buying pressure and quality rallies should follow.
What mining stocks do here is one of the most important price tests in years!
