The dying gold and silver juniors are the "canary in the gold mine," with most trading near pink sheet levels, and they are SCREAMING that the seniors must continue to crash into the close of the year.
With most of the gold and silver seniors trading at superbubble valuations...with most senior miners trading far away from 52 week highs or just completing distribution tops near 52 week highs,,,,then there is plenty of short money to be made as they collapse into close of the year.
IGNORE all wrong way pumpsters who SCREAM about a "strong" season in the metals. They are so sure of that matter that they are bound to be WRONG. Whenever too many investors believe in an alleged "certainty," you be certain that "certainty" will NEVER manifest.
That is why smarter market vets and pros RE-SHORT every phony uptick in the sick golds and silvers, to the max, while only amateur dupes go long or buy the call options, destined for worthlessness, as they have wiped out every month for more than a year now.
