(Editor’s Note: This is an expanded version of an item in last Friday’s DP ALERT WEEKLY WRAP.)
Last week we added some indicators to the Gold Miners Index (GDX) chart. First, Erin really likes the RSI, so she encouraged me to put that on the daily charts, GDX included. Next, the Percent Stocks Above Their 20EMA, 50EMA, and 200EMA indicators are some of my faves, and StockCharts.com is now calculating the GDX version of them for us. What do these indicators tell us? When price is above a particular EMA (Exponential Moving Average), we can consider it to be positive in that time frame. Pretty simple.
