Here is another ‘day trader’ chart (hourly) of GDX showing the lower (Jan. 5) gap being filled (ref. Jan. 9 post using a 5 min. chart). So that gap is out of the way, but there is lateral support at around 21.50, which includes the 38% Fib of the entire bounce/rally. Don’t worry about the trend channel; those break all the time. It is lateral support that is important. A loss of the 38% Fib however, would open up the gap at the 62% Fib.
