Metals and miners in particular have been hammered in 2018.

Last week we noted a technical constellation that made a technical bounce play a good risk/reward set-up:

A falling wedge on a positive RSI divergence with a little bottom candle to boot.

Technical target for us is a 50MA reconnect. Note the MA is falling and $GDX will have to content with open gap fills.

Last we saw the wedge breakout retested and currently are seeing a bounce back to the open gap:

Open gaps and MA intersects will likely present technical resistance confluence.
