That's right the year just started and gold miners are on fire, the Direxion Shares Exchange Traded Fund Trust (NUGT) is up an incredible 67% this year already.
Despite this bullish return the problems facing the gold miners have not vanished. Rather the trading robots, swing traders and hedge funds are trying make a quick buck to start the year after getting creamed in 2014.
