The Death of Gold and Silver Stocks

All I can say is this little ETF, much like its really big competitor the Market Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX), officially hit the two-year nadir (bottom) in share pricing. These ETFs have a barely detectable pulse rate, and the financial paramedics have been called.

Maybe, just maybe, this is the contrary indicator so many of us have been waiting for. Or, maybe gold and silver stocks and the entire sector are comatose and waiting for a kiss from Prince Chow Mein? Having recently anointed myself the Prince of Chow Mein, I officially "kiss the sector" and await her awakening. Prince Charming, if you read this, please kiss "her" as well. Good luck to us all!

At the time of publication the author had positions in ABX, SLW and GDX.
