A focus on the daily chart for GDX

Dave Erfle joins me today for a close look at the GDX daily chart. While gold stocks are still in a short term correction there are some near term price levels to watch that if broken will open up a little more downside. We also discuss news out of Eclipse Gold Mining (TSX.V:EGLD) and the trading that is occurring today.

        What do you mean that the Cares Act to fund the economy was proposed last year? Are you referring to H.R.748 – CARES Act which was originally the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019 which had nothing to do with the CARES Act until March of 2020.

            Yes, the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019 was introduced on 01/24/2019.

            All that did at the time was to repeal the excise tax on employer-sponsored health care coverage for which there is an excess benefit (high-cost plans).

            It originally had nothing to do with the CARES Act until in March of 2020 when the CARES Act was added to the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019.

            All one has to do is read each Summary of H.R.748 to see that the CARES Act was not added until 03/25/2020.

            SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

            This Act may be cited as the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and
            Economic Security Act” or the “CARES Act”.

            The short titles are not strange. In 2019 for the House of Representatives they were:

            Short Titles as Passed House
            Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019

            Short Titles as Introduced
            Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019

            The short titles in March of 2020 for the Senate were:

            CARES Act
            Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act

            Here is the original text of H.R.748 which was Introduced in House on 01/24/2019. Nothing in there about the CARES Act.

            You are correct jmiiller. The Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act was transformed into CARES Act in 2020.

      Hydroxychloroqine with zinc and Zpac anibiotic works perfectly as a therapuetic treatment for Covid. It is being poopood by NIH/FDA because it exists and is cheap, so big pharma can’t profit from it. The truuth is out there, but finding it involves work.

        Just Truth:
        The timing of administration of Hydro and Zinc is crucial. Most studies completely have missed the mark. I refer to Chris Martensen with his degree in Pathology.

    Dexamethasone is a synthetic glucocorticoid that binds the human glucocorticoid receptor with a higher affinity than a natural ligand, cortisol (Kd = 5 nM versus 17 nM, respectively).1 Through receptor activation, dexamethasone has both transactivating and transrepressing effects on gene expression, producing, in general, anti-inflammatory results.2

    Galiano Gold (GAU) – Turnaround Story. Creating Cash, Not just Mining Ounces

    CRUX Investor – June 12, 2020 #VIDEO

    “Interview with Greg McCunn, CEO of Galiano Gold (TSX/NYSE:GAU)”

    “Galiano Gold (formerly Asanko Gold) is a mid-tier gold producer with an operating gold mine in Ghana: Asanko. The mine is owned and operated in a 50:50 JV with Gold Fields Limited (JSE, NYSE: GFI). It is large scale and started producing in 2016, but a recent tactical shift has been something of a game-changer. Galiano Gold has gone from focussing on building the resource as large as possible to now placing an emphasis on sustainable cash flow and incremental growth through rapid fully-funded exploration.”

    The Chinese Are Buying Distressed Gold Assets, and Are Willing To Pay A Good Premium

    by @Samson Li on 14 Jun 2020

    “In the last month or so, two Chinese mining companies have made overseas acquisitions that have shocked the market. Both acquisitions involved the Chinese buying gold assets in the American continent. In May, Shandong Gold announced its intention to buy TMAC in a $168 million deal. Then just last week, Zijin emerged to become the highest bidder for the highly sort after Guyana Goldfields, offering C $1.85 per share, which is equivalent to $239 million. Both are all cash deals. In this article we share some background stories of these deals after talking to different people in the mining circle, and provide our thoughts on these transactions.”

        Yep, they are bargain hunting and buying companies of value. Can’t say that I blame them for scooping up deals on long life Precious Metals companies that will be producing Gold far into the future.
