This has been a recurring trading stock for the Trade of the Day throughout the past year.

Following a run in September from $40 to $55, GDX pulled back in a series of steps until finding support at the 200-day moving average. It penetrated that major indicator, but then reversed and flashed a double Collins-Bollinger Reversal buy signal (our internal indicator), moving up through the three major moving averages (20-, 50- and 200-day) and an intermediate resistance trendline

GDX appears to be in buying range with a trading target of $50-plus and a long-term target of $65. Gold futures flashed a strong buy last week, adding support to our trading target for GDX.
