The ratio has formed a clean falling channel (series of lower highs and lower lows) inside of (1). Three different times it knocked on the underside of falling resistance at (2), only to be turned away.
The ratio is making another attempt to breakout this week at (3). If the ratio does breakout, it would send a positive message to Silver, Gold and Mining stocks.
Full Disclosure- Premium and Metals members bought GDXJ on 12/27/2016 and have been selling into strength. Should a breakout take place at (3), we will be looking to establish new positions in this space, with tight stops.
