Following up on the Miners Spreadsheet

By -

On April 27th, I did a video speculating on how high the miners (GDX) would bounce before presenting another good shorting opportunity. In it, I concluded we would bounce to 49.17 before beginning the much larger fall.

Well, we just kept fallling. Indeed, I bought GDX yesterday, only to close it at a loss this morning. A new short position today repaired the damage, and I ended the day buying GDX again (and, with much larger size, GLD).
