    Slowly but surely we are getting there……………….

    Interesting price action on the gold stocks today. Here is one of your charts I saved of GDX. The 50EMA is crossing below the 200EMA on this GDX chart but the price is moving above the 20EMA. This is one of the few green charts today.

  3. Ron/BC Says:


    It looks for some time now that we are going to hell in a handbasket. BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT, it may be that I’m becoming more pessimistic. I do lean in that direction much of the time as it does save me from joining the herd over the cliff often enough. There will always be good buys now and again though looking at the charts but many of them will be short lived.

  4. RonBC Says:


    Here is another Gold stock chart but of You can see it has been outperforming GDX since last October. It is set up nicely to breakout above the $19.44-$19.50 area. A breakout there should see price rally to $21. It’s one of the few markets looking “reasonably” bullish.

  5. Paula Says:

    Thanks for the charts. It is curious that XGD is outperforming GDX since among the top ten holdings of GDX, seven are Canadian companies. Mind you the top holding at of GDX with ~ 16% allocation is NEM, a US company. On XGD, NEM is ~ 22% so maybe just trade NEM. It trade millions of shares a day and had a dividend yield over 3%. I think the FX might be messing with the ratio of XGD.TO:GDX.

    I tried making a chart of NEM using your ratio chart and it looks like it might be breaking down relative to GDX. What do you think? Maybe you can correct my lines.

  6. DM/ON Says:

    RE: #5
    XGD is in CAD and because USD is recently (last few days) strengthening (simultaneously with gold and miners reversal on Friday) XGD has greater increase. Rate of exchange plays quite a bit of role in valuing the stocks especially with the degree of volatility they recently have. I’m wondering if CAD vs USD somewhat increases on Monday while miners idle, may produce little better opportunity to buy XGD, then, expecting USD continues its bias, but gold and miners continue to strengthen as well thus preserving our Canadian portfolio value.
    I guess, we’ll see.

  7. Paula Says:

    Thanks for your comments. I thought FX might be the issue with the ratio chart of XGD.TO:GDX but having trouble wrapping my head around it. Ron/BC shows XGD outperforming since last October, so it’s not a short term thing. USD has been strengthening over that time.

  8. Ron/BC Says:


    Here is a 2 year Daily chart of NEM with GDX and overlaid in blue and orange. Note how well both overlays stick together as they are both a combination of Gold stocks so will act far more radically than the single long term stock of NEM. So far more price action with the ETFs.
    The seasonal trend 2nd chart shows GDX outperforming NEM ahead but I think it will always outperform NEM due to the structure of the ETFs.
    NEM also bounced off of support with a high close.

  9. Ron/BC Says:

    The chart in #8 shows NEM outperforming GDX and over that time frame But you have to keep in mind NEM has been in a steady uptrend the entire time with higher highs and the two ETFs have just been trading sideways with stronger sell offs. So NEM will look to be a better buy.

  10. Paula Says:

    Thanks for all your input.Very helpful.
    As usual lots to think about.

  11. Ron/BC Says:


    I think I’ll see what does tomorrow to see if it can breakout over resistance. Unfortunately I live in Pacific Time so am late the the stock party all the time.

    re: #7
    The value of the US Dollar is normally based on a basket of six foreign currencies (Euro, Yen, Pound Sterling, Cdn Dollar, Swedish Krona, and Swiss Franc. According to Wikipedia, in this basket the Euro makes up 57.6% and Canada 9.1%. Assuming the USD chart in Stockcharts reflects this convention it is not a good comparison directly to the Cdn Dollar.

    A better chart for portfolios valued in Cdn Dollars may be the chart of the $USDCAD pairs trade. I have attached the weekly Stockchart. It shows that the value of the USD has been in a tight trading range relative to the Cdn Dollar for nearly a year.

  13. Paula Says:

    I used to wonder if you got up really early to see the open but then I realized that you were not that interested. LOL

  14. Paula Says:

    Re # 12.
    Thanks for the different perspective.

  15. RonBC Says:


    Long ago I used to get up at the crack of dawn to see the open and perhaps make a trade until as time went on I realized the markets tend to get an explosive open from all the eager beavers trying to get a jump on things. Not a good bunch to follow. I can’t recall the analyst’s name but someone I respected then said, “The amateur’s determine the open and the professionals determine the close.” That I can believe. So get up when I get up now, lol. Right now the markets are getting their butts kicked……….again……………….
