Gold Stocks Continue To Surge Higher

The gold miners’ stocks surged strongly this week, blasting to new upleg highs.  The mounting gains are naturally driving more interest in this small contrarian sector, shifting sentiment towards bullish.  Despite their accelerating rally, gold stocks still remain fairly low technically and deeply undervalued relative to gold.  So their strengthening upleg likely has plenty of room…
