Gold and silver moved lower after yesterday's show of strength, but the performance of miners was rather pathetic - the HUI Index moved below its Monday low even though gold didn't, and even though the USD Index actually declined. What's going on? Today's Market Alert provides the answer.

Gold and silver rallied with a vengeance yesterday, but mining stocks barely moved. While the outlook for miners is not favorable at this time and certainly yesterday's price action didn't improve it, you might be wondering if those interested in metals (gold, silver and platinum) should be waiting on the sidelines or is this the final time to get aboard as far as a directional trade is concerned. We provide our insights in today's Market Alert.

Precious metals and mining stocks declined heavily yesterday and the short positions that you had (hopefully) entered based on Friday's Premium Update are already profitable. The HUI Index closed below 200 and the move was significant enough to confirm the breakdown below the previous 2013 low even without 3 consecutive closes on trading days. The volume on the GDX ETF was also significant.
Has the final sharp downswing in the precious metals sector just started? What's next and how to adjust your portfolio for this volatile situation? You'll find details in today's Market Alert.

Another hard month for oil bulls is behind us. Market participants pushed crude oil down 3.6% as rising supplies weighted on the price. With this downward move, light crude hit a fresh monthly low of $91.77 and broke not only below the short-term support, but also the medium-term one. Although we noticed a pullback which took the price to slightly below $94 on Friday, light crude posted its seventh weekly loss in eight weeks. Will light crude drop any further in the nearest future? Is it possible that the oil-to-oil-stocks ratio will give us some interesting clues? What is the current technical picture for the oil market? We invite you to check our Oil Investment Update. Have a nice read.
