The gold miner consolidation, which began in early August of 2016, is giving us strong signals of being close to ending soon. Miner ETF traders have been treated to multiple whipsaw moves since the beginning of June, making it nearly impossible to successfully trade the sector.

Silver in particular is gruesomely undervalued and has huge upside potential from here. read more at The Gold Report
