Genworth (GNW) Bull Training Leaving the Station

On August 19, at $37.46, I said, "This seems to be an attractive entry point for this ETF, which formed a very bullish cup and handle formation and, in March, a gold cross. The target for this investment is $50 to $55. Place a stop loss at $33."

Then, on October 5, at $43.10, I said, "On September 16, GDX hit a new high at $48 and then succumbed to profit taking. The October 2 close is near to the first major support, the 50-day moving average at $41.75, so first-time buyers may eye this area for a half position.“

“Volume on the recent pullback is high but declining, indicating that a climax has or is about to occur. A full position could be initiated below $40.”

“The trading target remains unchanged at $50 to $55.”

With a new stochastic buy signal, the target remains unchanged at $55.
