After following and investing in the gold mining sector since 2000 I have tried to identify the major leaders in each run and greatest candidates for my capital. I am looking at great relative strength to the price of gold. This indicator shows me that this miner has great leverage to the price and even if gold stays flat this miner will outperform.

On June 8th, 2010 New Gold (NGD) made a triple top breakout relative to gold and shows great relative strength. One of the reasons NGD is outperforming even though it has exposure to base metals is that the street is becoming aware of its amazing portfolio of assets, decreasing cash costs and major institutional insiders such as Pierre Lassonde and Seymour Shulich who build Franco Nevada. These are the type of investors who recognize value and growth both of which NGD has and have put capital into this company.

Today NGD was put on FTSE Gold Mines Index which is an important step in NGD's growth story as its market cap has improved significantly since our original recommendation at 2.50 last May. Precious metals are outperforming the general indexes. When I see breakouts in specific miners relative to gold this is a huge buy signal and believe NGD will move higher. NGD has the financial strength to withstand a market downturn and it seems that the investment community is becoming aware of NGD's assets and growth story.

I started reading charts at eleven years old. One day my father, a market trader and technician found his library of books on technical analysis mysteriously disappearing. He later found the textbooks under my bed. For many years day and night I studied technical analysis and charting, working and learning from my father who has over 50 years of trading experience. Technical analysis is my passion and love.

In 2001, I started noticing the junior mining stocks and gold as having a tremendous upside. For the past 9 years I have researched many juniors and have identified the major winners using technical analysis and finding top management.

I earned a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics and a Masters Degree. I learned most of my technical analysis from the school of hard knocks, managing real money for myself and for my family.

Constantly perfecting my craft, I have traded for two decades of success in many different markets. I have been asked to post ideas to some of my students who have taken my course in charting and technical analysis. I have made an excellent living trading stocks for myself.
