Top 3 Gold Mining Stocks for the Coming Move Higher

Larry Tentarelli

The Gold Miners ETF NYSE:GDX is setting up for a move higher here and has solid price support below. And I believe this rally will benefit several gold mining stocks.

The Gold Miners ETF (GDX) closed Friday at $28.45 and is setting up technically for a move higher, based on our chart analysis.

GDX recently held key price support at $26 over the last few months (between September and November), before breaking out above resistance at $28 three weeks ago.

And it has now consolidated that recent breakout, setting up the ETF (and other gold mining stocks) for its next move.

I am expecting a move higher to start over the coming days, and believe this could push the gold mining ETF to new 7-year highs, which is currently $31.06 (reached in 2013).

I am positioned long here in GDX (see chart below). I am also sharing my top 3 large cap gold mining stocks / ideas: Newmont Goldcorp NYSE: NEM, Barrick Gold NYSE: GOLD and Franco-Nevada Corp NYSE: FNV

I employ a standard 10% stop loss system, so a close under $25.60, which is below the rising 200-day moving average, would negate this position, and shorter-term, we want to see $26 hold on any pullback. As long as $26 holds, we believe there could be significant potential upside in this space.
