Going with the flow is extremely important, so review our Market Analysis with this GDX Report.

GDX – (Long) Support Plan

There is no current Support Plan to trigger a buy of this stock at this time. This usually means that there are no clear support levels at this time, so buying the stock as it falls could be considered catching a falling knife. Buy signals only exist if resistance breask higher.
This often is a signal that the stock you are watching is weak. Waiting for a turn higher may be more intelligent than trying to catch a falling knife. In any case, new support levels are usually revised to the database at the beginning of the next trading session.

GDX – (Short) Resistance Plan

Short under 18.64, target n/a, stop loss @ 18.9.
The technical summary data is suggesting a short of GDX as it gets near 18.64, but the downside target is not available from the current data. This tells us to hold that position if it is triggered until a new downside target has been established (updates occur at the beginning of every trading session) or until the position has been stopped. The summary data tells us to have a stop loss in place at 18.9. 18.64 is the first level of resistance above 18.02, and by rule, any test of resistance is a short signal. In this case, if resistance 18.64 is being tested, so a short signal would exist.
