re: Any reason precious metal stocks are nose diving? (Posted on 2/20/13 at 10:00 am to Catman88)
The US dollar has been in a nice uptrend, which doesn't help PM prices.
1500-1550 is the first level of support for gold, with 1400 being the second (and last IMO) support for gold bulls.
In silver 26 should hold if we are still in a silver bull, though 28 should provide support.
As far as metals go, the one I like the most at the moment is platinum. Big time supply issues with south africa mining problens and Chinese auto sales (combined with government crackdown on the cars having effective catalytic converters) increasing demand could set up an explosive scenario.
