Stop reading so much into the movements of mining stocks during tax loss selling season following a 15 month correction.
Nothing has happened to your favorite junior except that there have been more sellers than buyers which drove PRICE down.
It’s easier to buy obviously undervalued securities if you just assume that the market is clueless and the seller is a troglodyte who will buy back the same shares at the highs.
Ask yourself if you are selling because you think the stock is undervalued or because you are afraid it might get cheaper (price going down)…
During sentiment lows coupled with tax loss selling it will almost always be the latter and as a long term value investor that is the worst reason there is.
The main ingredient for great long term results is to start by buying, not selling, low.
