  • scottrades: $NUGT / $GDX Building a nice base. Things get more interesting above the black line.
  • DrScience: @scottrades $NUGT $GDX Yes, quite interesting. I cheated a bit and added to $NUGT this morning, Think a move above 29.50 will bring in a few more "Sooners"...
  • CraigReynolds: @scottrades $NUGT $GDX Not sure if direction will hold, in @$29.40. Buyers above VWAP. Will see soon how it will go. Tight stop for day trade then will see what end of of day will tell if not stopped out.
  • DrScience: @scottrades @CraigReynolds $NUGT $GDX 👍 More and more Interesting...
  • Robert1965: @scottrades $NUGT $GDX have you added today
  • scottrades: @Robert1965 $NUGT $GDX Yes, I have a core position and added a little today.
  • Robert1965: @scottrades $NUGT $GDX I haven't added looks like I am late

  • Ajax4Hire: ...
  • CraigReynolds: @1993dean $GOLD Not Dan but gold hasn't been a LT trade for me except one stock, but I trade the $GDXX $NUGT $JNUG $GDX $DUST for day trade and swing trades lasting into the next day or a day or to beyond, depending on news. I do have a LT hold on $KL since first of the year, it started out as day trade, then swing and just kept going. Still in. You may want to review Dan/Bridget video on swing trading and @scottrade does swing trade videos on Tuesday with other stocks which are beyond good for new traders.
  • DAN: @1993dean $GOLD Today looks like a day to be taking profits. I don't have a gold position other than the coins sitting in my biometric safe. Honestly, I missed this move and I'm not going to chase. But if you look at a weekly chart, you'll see tha ...
  • DrScience: $DXY Dollar falling further below the 200 DMA is helping /GC $GLD. Miners liking the action with $GDX stretching above 2017 and 2018 highs toward those 2016 highs around $32. $NUGT finally having a selling day after 10 straight days of higher closes.
  • bRobert: @Herb Small position. No house money . Good technical trade. $GLD/$GDX .squeeze breakout in June was another that was followed intently by SMM traders
  • traderbren: @bRobert $GLD - agreed...watching for it, and snugging up stops on $GDX, $NUGT....and keeping an eye on $DUST for a reversal trade.
  • kt4000: @traderbren $GLD $GDX $NUGT $DUST I too have been waiting for the pullback for $DUST - watching $NUGT, $UGL and $GDX for that
  • bRobert: $GDX WEEKLY reversal target is $30 If long this or $NUGT GREAT! Raise stops/consider partial profits Look for the pb/bounce . High momentum but volume is declining.
  • traderbren: @bRobert $GDX $NUGT - $NUGT got a bid into the close...getting near the $30 PT. Getting parabolic on this move. Some gaps below that will get filled at some point.
  • bRobert: $GDX . $30 .WEEKLY reversal target 20% (up 25% in a month already) . More with the 3x . espresso . or Calls Look for a pb/bounce
  • issues: @bRobert $GDX We hold small position in $KL. Wish I had more.
  • bRobert: @issues $GDX $KL Isn't that always the case? We could just own one stock. if we KNEW.
  • champ: @issues $GDX $KL --- If you are thinking about adding, today could still be entry-timing, to add more. For me, I wish, I had a Crystal Ball. There will be a meeting at the WH, real soon, with the top leaders of both houses, Congress-Senate, 6 from each house I believe, with the top Military Brass. I added risk to my hope-trades.
  • champ: @CraigReynolds $GDX $KL --- Must have been Fox, no sound on CNBC, since early this morning.
  • CraigReynolds: @champ $GDX $KL Watching, just heard. Did not have any stations volume on. Thanks
  • champ: @CraigReynolds $GDX $KL --- #Defense briefing on-going RHRN....
  • CraigReynolds: @champ $GDX $KL #Defense Listening to Fox. They are doing a special with reporting in China.
  • drmike54: @bRobert $GDX $KL $AMZN Just buy $AMZN, and if it goes down, buy more. In spite of what I am sure will be some very nasty corrections, ten years from now you will be a very happy camper..... I'm not sure the same can be said about gold, or gold miners.
  • champ: @CraigReynolds $GDX $KL #Defense --- The news is Off and On, but that news is only the part that China, wants the U.S. to hear, never know about the real news or the ER -numbers. These large companies are mostly owned and financed by #Communist-China. They are in-control of the cash flow and the companies. Its like orangrinzised crime, CEO's start out by being hand-picked, kinda like the Mafia, everything is top-secret or you just disappear. They get their cut on all companies, more than taxes, profits, plus taxes. You can only have one child in China, think about that and on it goes, everything is controlled.
  • drmike54: @drmike54 $GDX $KL $AMZN $AMZN is my one stock....... and we know.
  • CraigReynolds: @champ $GDX $KL #Defense #Communist-China FYI China changed the law Nov 2013 from 1 child to two children. Yes, Communist Party is evil and for themselves only. They would love to rule the World. Any CEO, even if the head of the Company in China is America and he/she is located in China has to sign the pledge to Communism. Xi Jinping is as cruel evil man for sure. I'm sure glad President Trump is the person dealing with him , my take. Even is agreement is signed, Xi will do whatever he wants.
  • champ: @CraigReynolds $GDX $KL #Defense #Communist-China --- Thats nice, now you can have 2-children. Money and power corrupts many. Their rule of law, is all about corruption at the top, is how they stay in power.
    It is really hard to know, how things rea ...
  • bRobert: @scottrades $NUGT $JNUG WEEKLY charts of $GLD $GDX show reversal patterns with a very high potential
  • Henry: @Forexpro $AMZN $GLD Thanks, I was long $GDX pre tweet, not now
  • bRobert: $GDX multiday chart projects to $24 Daily testing neaing r top of range $23.75 high Long calls $KL
  • champ: $GDX $NUGT $JNUG ---- It sure looks like this gold move could continue, because of this new News today, should be positive for all of the gold speculators. Interest rate are down again today. $TNX, the 10-year is down another -1.05% and is at 20.95 -0.32.
  • bRobert: $GLD . $125 . flag/neckline support ..... For now. Looking for phase 3 . $KL . phase 2 . flag. $36/$35 . support Similar dynamic $GDX . .
  • Herb: @bRobert $GLD $KL $GDX $KL good gold chart.
  • Forexpro: @bRobert $GLD $KL $GDX Thanks, BRobert, Mildly disconcerting to see such a (relatively) sharp break lower, but as I look at the daily, it would appear that no damage has been done. The ATR is up to slightly more than 1.01, so the net result on the day isn't actually all that dramatic. In fact, I'll look to add a bit around 124.05. I will begin to get concerned on a pullback extending beyond 122.65, or thereabouts, but we aren't there. Hope that you're doing well; all the best!
  • JoeTrader: $GDX $GDXJ $KL $WPM Gold and Silver miners getting some action...really like $KL for the long haul
  • bRobert: $GDX 200d bounce $KL . small wedge
  • bRobert: $GDX W bottom $21.75 with move above $21+ $NUGT $16 trigger $18 target
  • bRobert: $KL Looks far better than $GDX. Bullish daily/WEEKLY WEEKLY MACD crosses are lucrative. Longer term hold. Add on pb/bounces
  • bRobert: $KL $37 with flag trigger > $33.40 $GDX $25+/$29 with triggers
  • bRobert: $X $FCX Both developing nicely . High beta plays . Copper outperforming gold . Bullish. $$GDX /GLD double bottom. W swing trades available at your local store.
  • mradams0621: $NUGT $GLD $GDX $GDXJ pretty sharp drop overnight. hmmmmm
  • BigOx: @Dan, re Gold $NUGT and $GDX etc is it just dollar strength that is putting gold under pressure?
  • Forexpro: @BigOx $NUGT $GDX Hi, BigOx, I'm not nearly Dan, but course, but be it noted that U.S. interest rates are also higher on the day. $TNX is plus 1.01 percent for the session at the moment. Of course, that's 1.01 percent up from very little, but the gold trade may have become a tad crowded in the near term, and susceptible to a pullback. FWIW, in the case of the Dollar, other things being equal (which occasionally happens) higher U.S. interest rates relative to its trading partners will tend to propel it higher. That's been less reliably true of late, but it was a given when I was working in that market. Hope you're doing well; all the best!
  • BigOx: @Forexpro $NUGT $GDX $TNX Many thanks for that, I'm also looking at the ETF on the banks which seem vulnerable to the downside if rates, which is being discussed, could be cut.......? Hence my interest in the gold space re a place to hide. Thank you for your comment
  • Forexpro: @BigOx $NUGT $GDX $TNX

    You're Very Welcome, BigOx,

    If the economy really is slowing quickly, I would expect the Fed to, no doubt reluctantly, do some cutting. Please keep in mind, though, that it's the shape of the yield curve that matters, not th ...
  • BigOx: @Forexpro $NUGT $GDX $TNX Thank you again, much appreciated
  • bRobert: @BigOx $NUGT $GDX Technically it is bouncing off the top of the range. Ascending zig zag. pattern . Looking for a higher low. Bounce off 50d would do the trick = Next zig.
  • bRobert: $GDX . WEEKLY Tight ascending zig zag channel . $24 . next. Top of range. The zag bounce is your BEST entry . It will take A LOT of work to break >24.50. Long GDX call spreads.
  • DAN: I will be sending out today's Strategy Session prior to market close. Some of the ideas/stocks mentioned in the video might be of interest to you today, so here are a few that I'll be discussing:

    $GLD -- Gold is strong and likely to move higher as ...
  • rachel: ...
    $NUGT -- Triple your fun from the $GDX.
    Homebuilders: Strong, and several are starting to work. With the Fed neutered, there is little danger of rising rates.
    $XHB -- Top performer in today's ETFs, though not buyable. Just holding above the 200-da ...
  • DrScience: @phgruver $SPY $QQQ $IWM struggling, but $GLD, $GDX are golden (so far). ⚒️

  • CraigReynolds: @bRobert $NUGT $GDX Is the May 24c & 25c Option calls purchased today correct? WOW
  • bRobert: @CraigReynolds $NUGT $GDX MASSIVE That's where I am . I guess I'm not alone
  • traderbren: #Golden_Hammer: $GDX and $NUGT - bullish hammer
  • bRobert: @traderbren $GDX $NUGT #Golden_Hammer If I had a hammer, I'd buy more in the morning (with evidence of follow through). I buy call spreads for these to reduce limit risk and boost % returns.
  • bRobert: @traderbren $NUGT Long $GDX . calls
  • Cokeman1959: @bRobert $CPRT $X $TKR $FCX $GDX - GDX seems to be two steps forward and two steps back.
  • DrScience: @issues $FRTA Nope. Too big a gamble. But, I like gold miners as the $GOLD/$NEM joint venture talks shake out. So, I'm in $GDX and $GG.

  • DrScience: $DXY the dollar near 2018 high @ 97.71, breaking out of a volatility squeeze. As noted by @bRobert, $UUP is up nicely today, second only to $GDX. In general, higher dollar is bad for US stocks. Read more at:

    New positions: $GDX & $JEF (Mar. calls)

    Now for the bad…really, terrible bad - $PYPL, $V – Getting absolutely annihilated on both and that’s all I’m “gonna” say.

  • Sher: $USO - Perking up - Lousing timing on this one, so although Feb. $11 calls up 46%, today, position still a bit underwater - Counting on Venezuelan sanctions... $PFE - Bullish reversal following AM earnings plunge - "Spec" call position hanging on by a thread... VWAP holding, for now. I've really excelled at "bonehead" trades, lately... Prior posts: $GDX - Taking profits... $ROKU - Took nice gains, this morning, on Feb. $42 calls - Reentered trade with Feb. $45 calls, this time - Big intraday swings have been the norm - Remains above 8-day MA. $HUYA - Adding to Feb. $20 calls - Nice reversal off 20-day MA, so thinking (hoping) phase 2 PB over - Wishing, of course, I'd taken huge gains on Friday...
