This is year end, I far back as I can remember, year end is never good for miners, I think '07 was an exceptional year. This is a good time to accumulate miners at a discount and let second week of January move this unloved market higher.
You can day trade, you can swing trade, but investment in gold miners is tough ride. For those you are riding this thing until GG hits $60 or better, better play options game so at least there is some cash recovery. On that note, IMO we'll see GG @ $60 next year.
