You are apparently very new in this stock. Gold is not up but down. Futures gold contracts are closing at 2:30 ECT, but gold still went up about .4% before market closed.Best indicator for gold is GLD etf
Actually tango was right, in 90% cases GDX and GDXJ correlate on gold, but scary that retails are very heavy in this stock now. Institutions always making money on retails.
