Email of the day on holding gold miners

Eoin, what is the rationale for continuing to own GDX when it has cracked through the $30 mark which you have been very confident about holding, and you have now sold Gold? If Gold is going lower still, GDX is going to go with it, likely with higher beta. I am left with GDX which has been a horror show, now down 40% in just a couple of months, and pondering what to do with it.

Eoin Treacy's view

Thanks for this question which I’m sure others are asking. I was hopeful the $30 area would hold because it is the upper side of the base formation. Unfortunately, the market doesn’t listen to what I think. Life would be a lot easier if it did. I bought my initial position during the pandemic panic of 2020 because I thought it was a no brainer. That was the correct instinct but my second purchase was completed at too high a level, so now my total position is running a loss.
