We look at any high yield investments as well as bank stocks that continue to under-perform. It continues to be a headline driven market while downward pressure remains.

    I’ve sold quite a bit of stocks and have gone short silver, I wish I could have switched sooner but the damn fed idiot caught me off guard too… To me it looks like silver will dip into the $23s, all in my humble opinion. I have been caught by fed mumbo jumbo too many times.

      I’ve also shorted energy with HED. I used HZD for silver.

        Good thoughts Dan and thanks for sharing your near-term shorting strategy in silver and oil. I had considered putting on a short hedge last week, just in case we saw a bit more downside pressure in the PMs but regrettably didn’t pull the trigger on it. At this point I’ll just be watching for more weakness in the mining stocks to fire off some of my dry powder into the pullback and top up some of my positions.

          Let me be clear, this is short term thinking in an emerging bull market. I was away from the computer for a couple hours and everything went south… my holdings could be completely different before the weekend, haha!;-)

            Understood Dan, and I took your comments to be just that – a short-duration trade to the short side, within the context of a bullish outlook medium to longer term. Nothing wrong with that as the market moves in both directions.

    Just when you thought PM miners are about to take off, here comes the smash Lol. Anyone noticing Head & Shoulder pattern on Hecla chart?

    Two day -15% hit on my account puts me back to -40% since January during a favorable commodity market. I would say that pretty much proves intervention

      The silver miners are screaming range bound trade for the rest of 2022 IMO. That being said, we could get a very decent price spike starting next week. I am not expecting SIL’s 2020 high to get taking out until spring or summer 2023, however. I could be wrong, but IMO the sell-off in 2021 did serious chart damage and SIL will need to base out for another 6-8 months within a lower range.

      We’ll see.

    GDX understandably got sold hard when it tested its falling monthly Bollinger Band resistance again. Because of its leadership that got it to that resistance ahead of the pack, I’m betting that the smaller miners will take over leadership this quarter.
