Two months ago, I talked about Gold moving higher, but a higher reward/risk play was to buy the Gold miner, in particular the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners exchange-traded fund, GDXJ, which tracks a basket of smaller gold mining firms.
The GDXJ is less liquid vs the GDX (the large cap gold mining EFT), so a bit more volatile, which means they can move violently in either direction. But the thesis was, as the global economy comes to a halt, then crashes, investors will be buying safe havens, such as gold. And if Gold could get to $1900 over time,
GDXJ should be able to get to $180 or a 6X return.
Since that post two months ago, Gold is up about 10%, while the GDXJ is up about 15%.
Thus, since Silver just broke a long term down trendline and is about to take out the $17 level on the monthly chart,
another derivative play on Silver would be the Global X Silver Miners ETF, SIL, which tracks the Solactive Global Silver Miners Total Return Index. And since Silver is undervalued relative to Gold (see my post for details),
over the next couple of years, Silver should outpace Gold and thus, SIL should outpace Silver. The targets on SIL (which happen to be monthly supply zones) I will be watching are monthly supply at $55 and $69.50.
