This chart looks at the Junior Miners (GDXJ) to Gold ratio over the past 7-years. Metals bulls want to this ratio heading higher, to send a positive message to this sector.

The ratio has spent the majority of the past 7-years inside of falling channel (1), reflecting that Junior miners have been weaker than Gold.

The ratio is now testing the top of the falling channel and the top of a short-term pennant pattern at (2). The ratio attempted to break out of falling channel (1) in 2016 and 2017 with no luck. Currently, it is testing a key breakout level again at (2).

If the ratio breaks out at (2), it would send a bullish message to Miners and the metals sector overall. Will the results be different this time? If the ratio does break out, it could attract buyers that have been on the sideline for years.

If Gold, Silver, Copper or Mining stocks are of interest to you, we would be honored if you were a metals member.
