The managed money (including CTA‘s, hedge funds etc.) has amassed the largest net short position in the history of the disaggregated CoT report.

The recent M&A deal-flow (Barrick & Randgold) might have marked the bottom of the bear market.
According to Sentimentrader, 11 out of 12 mining stocks that are traded on a United States exchange have hit a 52-week low. This has happened only a handful times in 25 years. Over the next two weeks, mining stocks rebounded 8 out of 10 times.
We are convinced that the recent capitulation selling offers a very skewed risk/reward-profile of the next couple of months.
