The Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) has fallen close to 17 percent this year, while the Market Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF (GDXJ) has fallen over 21 percent.

HSBC analysts in a recent report have stated that gold could potentially gain from the political and economic turbulence in the U.S. and by the end of the year hit $1,900 per ounce.
"Economic uncertainty, geopolitical tensions and the uncertainty of the U.S. November elections are theoretically gold-bullish," and gold should rally in the second half of the year "when U.S. growth is poor and the dollar is weak," a new HSBC report said. "We expect prices to rally to above $1,900/oz by the end of the year. Patience is the most important commodity."
