NEW YORK ( TheGoldAndOilGuy.com) -- Precious metals and their related mining stocks continue to underperform the broad market. This year's heavy volume breakdown below key support has many investors and traders spooked, creating to a steady stream of selling pressure for gold and silver bullion and mining stocks.While the technical charts are telling me prices are trying to bottom, we must be willing to wait for price to provide low-risk entry points before getting involved. Precious metals are like any other investment in respect to trading and investing in them. There are times when you should be long, times to be in cash and times to be short (benefit from falling prices). Right now and for the last 12 months when looking at precious metals, cash has been king.
