Goepfert SentimenTrader continues: This has happened 16 other times, and it wasn’t a good sign for the sector. GDX managed to rebound over the next four sessions only 2 of the 16 times, averaging an 2 overall return of -4.8%. The last 10 all closed lower. The fund didn’t manage to rise more than 50% of the time until more than two months later. If it’s able to shake off this tendency, it would be a good sign that the multi-year downtrend is becoming unglued.

King World News note: Gold and silver bulls have to keep an eye on two things here.  One: If gold does make a new low, will the HUI Gold Mining Index put in a higher low.  Second: Will the HUI shake off the tendency to decline and head higher.  As Goepfert mentioned, that “would be a good sign that the multi-year downtrend is becoming unglued.”
