GDX Rising Wedge Breakdown & Pullback Targets

GDX (Gold Miners ETF) has broken down below a bearish rising wedge on this 60-minute time frame & is likely to resume the uptrend after hitting any of these 3 support levels; 24.88, 24.50 and 24.15.

    Sorry for the basic question: is the projection for the near to intermediate future for GDX bullish provided it doesn’t extend below 24.15? TIA.

    Good question. The answer is yes,,, and no. By listing these 3 relatively shallow pullback targets, the first of which was hit with GDX bouncing from there so far to take out the previous highs, were my pullback targets for this 60-minute wedge breakdown, any of all of which were likely to be hit before the miners make one last thrust up to my target around 25.70-25.85 on the daily chart, at which point I expect a more considerable reaction (i.e.- pullback and/or consolidation).

    Therefore, you could say that I am (or at least was) when that GDX reversed off that first pullback target) near-term bullish but then would be looking to book profits on most or all my gold & silver miners swing trades, quite likely looking to re-position long after a pullback but that level has not yet been determined yet.

    Another way to say that is that although I favor a little more upside in the miners, I don’t think the R/R to going long here (if not already long) is favorable since I’m looking for about another 1% upside followed by what could be a pullback of 4% or more. The SIL active trade is very close to T1, closing 44 cents below it today, so hoping that will be hit soon to book full profits on that official trade.

    looks like there is bearish divergence in the 60min charts…also in the smaller 15min timeframe.
