Jeff Bishop sees gold setting up a base and looking good for a leg up, so he is buying call options in the Van Eck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX) and taking on shares of the Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bulls 3X ETF expecting to see a 10 percent move in gold in the next month. Bishop noted that he prefers to get commodity producers — thus, gold miners in this case — than in the commodity itself, even in a technical trade like this one. Bishop expects GDX to hold the $23 level, but noted that there is upside potential of a dollar or more by the end of the year; he will set his stop-loss below $22.50, to get the right mix of risk and reward.
