With continued uncertainty in both the gold and silver markets, extreme readings are now taking place in gold and the mining shares.

From Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader:  The Junior Gold Miner fund (GDXJ) is the most-hated ETF…

 set to become one of the
highest grade producing gold mines on the planet


Monday’s drop pushed the Optimism Index to a lowly 3, and the 5-day average is now below 20 (see chart below).


When the 5-day average has declined below 20 for the first time in at least a week, GDXJ showed a positive return over the next three weeks 15 out of 17 times, averaging a return of +4.8%. Its risk over the next three weeks averaged -4.9% versus a reward of +9.3%. That’s a larger risk than we usually see with extreme pessimism, but it’s a volatile fund.

King World News note:  It is also worth noting that SentimenTrader has now lowered the risk for gold substantially to a 1 on a scale of 1-10 (see below).


King World News note:  Capitulation is about as extreme as it can get at this point in the gold market.  From a contrarian perspective this is a very bullish sign for the medium- to long-term time frame.
