Gold began to turn up last week and closed yesterday near it’s critical $1750 resistance level, while the GDX closed right below $35.00. Both gold and the GDX mining stock ETF need to close above these levels before technical traders, much less the masses, get on board this rally. However, several mining stocks broke out of their March highs ahead of the metals and that’s a positive sign that it will happen.
Take a look at the price of gold and you can see how it now has been trading in a narrow range for almost a month.
Notice how the 20-day Bollinger Bands for gold have been coming together now and are close enough that their width indicator is now below 3. This means that price volatility for gold is shrinking. That’s why the masses are no longer watching it, completely asleep on it, but periods of shrinking volatility tend to lead to a volatility expansion. In other words gold is setting up for a big move.
Well, a close above $1750 will bring buyers in and create a willingness to chase the prices higher. That’s what makes for a nice rally. And some mining stocks are already doing it. These are the ones that are in a position to be mining stock leaders for the rest of the year.
It’s starting to happen now with my top stock pick of the month Pacific Ridge Exploration (OTCMKTS: PEXZF).
PEX broke out on Monday, held those gains Tuesday. It closed above it’s February high!

I talked with Jim Goddard of www.howestreet.com about this impending breakout in gold and mining stocks that appears to be lining up on the charts.
