The Miners have been in a down trend since peaking in 2011.
The Miners printed their lowest point in September since July, 2002.
Since emerging from that low in September, the Miners went on to close above the upper daily cycle band on day 5 to signal a new daily uptrend. After peaking on day 5 the Miners printed their lowest point last Wednesday, which was day 13. That day 13 low closed above the lower daily cycle band. The Miners closed back above the upper daily cycle band on Friday, renewing the daily uptrend. The Miners will remain in an uptrend as long as it does not close below the lower daily cycle band.
The Miners just confirmed a new intermediate cycle and are in their timing band for a yearly cycle low, which was covered in this week’s Weekend Report. The Miners could be on the verge of turning a major corner.
Looking back over the past 16 years we can see that the Miners print a major, multi-year low on average every 40 months. The last major multi-year low printed in May of 2012 and September was month 40 following that low. The Miners have also been alternating printing their multi-year lows in the Spring and in the fall. And as we just noticed, the last multi-year low printed in May, 2012. And it is worth noting that the average gain during the first year following the multi-year low is 118%.
The first thing we need to see is a monthly swing low form on GDX. A break above 14.71 will form a monthly swing low and signal a new yearly cycle for the Miners.
