With Europe on the verge of a major collapse with all of their banks under capitalized I think we are at an inflection point in the mining stocks. Central banks are about to start easing again (they never really stopped it was just a pause period). As soon as the monetization starts you will see gold/silver continue their uptrend and the bull market will resume. This will cause the minors which have been punished to spike up as the short interest will reverse and funds will go long for the first time in 6 months.
Added 2000 shares aumn at 5.80 and will add another 3000 at 5.50 should I be so lucky.
