(This is a copy of last night's DecisionPoint Diamonds Report. I promised in today's Chartwise Women show that I would give some examples of how I set stops.)
One of the charts that I review every market day in the DP Alert is the Gold Miners ETF (GDX). DecisionPoint.com has unique "under the hood" indicators that reveal participation in detail. Using %Stocks > 20/50/200-EMAs combined with our powerful Golden Cross/Silver Cross Indexes we are usually on top of when to consider entry and exit from this particular industry group. I wish we had this chart for more of the industry groups. For now we have it for all of the SPDR sectors and Gold Miners.
Below is the Gold Miners (GDX) chart. Yesterday I was cautiously bullish on Gold Miners as we had a bounce off the bottom of a bullish falling wedge. I was cautious because price had yet to break out and participation, while improving, was still somewhat weak. Well, I think we are finally looking at a good bottom here.
There is a strong bullish bias in the short term given the %Stocks > 20-EMA is above the SCI reading. We also see slight improvement in the intermediate term given %Stocks > 50-EMA is also above the SCI reading. We are now seeing a pulse. Other positive indications are the nearing PMO crossover BUY signal and the rising RSI that has nearly hit positive territory. Another very positive indicator is Stochastics. We see a nice thrust upward out of oversold territory.
Given the new found momentum on GDX, I thought it was time to present a few of the Gold Miners that popped up in my scan results. The charts are very bullish.

It has mining operations, ongoing development projects and exploration in Turkey, Canada, Greece, Brazil, Romania and Serbia. The company was founded by Richard J. Barclay, Marco Antonio Romero, and Gary D. Nordin on April 2, 1992 and is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
Predefined Scans Triggered: P&F Descending Triple Bottom Breakdown, Three White Soldiers, Parabolic SAR Buy Signals, P&F Double Bottom Breakout and P&F Bearish Catapult.
EGO is unchanged in after hours trading. You'll note that all three of these charts are very similar to GDX, which of course makes sense. EGO has a bullish falling wedge. Price is testing the top of it. Most important, price closed well above the 20-EMA. The RSI moved into positive territory. The PMO triggered a crossover BUY signal. There is a positive divergence with the OBV. Stochastics are exactly what we want to see. Strong upthrust with a reading above net neutral (50). While the group may not be showing much in the way of relative strength, EGO outperforms both the group and the SPY. The stop level is pretty deep at -9.6%, but it needs to be below that support level.
The weekly chart looks a bit sketchy given the large rounded top formation. But we can see rising bottoms on the RSI as it travel higher. The PMO does appear to be decelerating in oversold territory. Price is bouncing off a strong support level.
Gold Fields Ltd. (GFI)
EARNINGS: 2/16/2022 (BMO)
Gold Fields Ltd. is a gold mining company, which engages in the production of gold and operation of mines. Its operating mines are located in Australia, Ghana, Peru, and South Africa. The company was founded on May 03, 1968 and is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Predefined Scans Triggered: Elder Bar Turned Green, P&F High Pole and Rising Three Methods.
GFI is up +0.60% in after hours trading. Here we have another falling wedge. Price closed above the 20-EMA and is ready to break from the bullish wedge. The RSI just moved into positive territory and the PMO had a crossover BUY signal today. Those of you who watch the trading rooms, you know that this is a buy point on the 5-minute candlestick chart (PMO crossover and positive RSI). I like the set up. Stochastics just moved above net neutral. This is a strong performer within the Gold Mining industry group and it is already performing better than the SPY. The stop is less deep on this one at 8% which makes it slightly more attractive than EGO.
We don't have a large rounded top on the GFI weekly chart. We have a rising RSI. The PMO is still declining and just went below the zero line which isn't great. However, we are sitting at a very important support level. This looks like an excellent pivot point. Upside potential is very good at over 47%.
SSR Mining Inc. (SSRM)
EARNINGS: 11/11/2021 (BMO)
SSR Mining, Inc. is a gold company. It engages in the operation, development, exploration, and acquisition of metal resource properties located in Turkey and the Americas. The firm focuses on the Çöpler Gold Mine, Puna, Marigold Mines, and Seabee Gold Operations. The company was founded on December 11, 1946 is headquartered in Vancouver, Canada.
Predefined Scans Triggered: Elder Bar Turned Green, Bullish MACD Crossovers, P&F Triple Bottom Breakdown and P&F Double Bottom Breakout.
SSRM is down -0.79% in after hours trading. I think we could probably draw a falling wedge, but what is dominate about the price chart is the prior trading range. Price is now testing the bottom of that range. A breakout would be excellent. Price already broke above the 20-EMA today. The RSI is rising, but not quite positive yet. The PMO is arching up toward a crossover BUY signal. Stochastics are quite favorable. Relative strength shows us that this is generally an outperformer within the industry group. It's also beginning to outperform the SPY. I like this one as it has an even tighter stop level than the previous two at 6.6%.
Price hasn't quite tested support at the 2021 low. If it can sustain a rally and breakout here, that would be especially bullish because it didn't need to test that support level before bouncing. There is a positive divergence with the weekly OBV. Conservatively we are looking at a possible 24%+ gain.
Current Market Outlook:
Market Environment: It is important to consider the odds for success by assessing the market tides. The following chart uses different methodologies for objectively showing the depth and trend of participation for intermediate- and long-term time frames.
- The Silver Cross Index (SCI) shows the percentage of SPX stocks on IT Trend Model BUY signals (20-EMA > 50-EMA)
- The Golden Cross Index (GCI) shows the percentage of SPX stocks on LT Trend Model BUY signals (50-EMA > 200-EMA)
- The Bullish Percent Index (BPI) shows the percentage of SPX stocks on Point & Figure BUY signals.
