Another miner I keep looking at is Alexco (AXU). I keep looking at it because it seems like it also has a nice tradeable range going on right now. Below $3.50, there is good support and has been for almost a year now. It would be nice to see it get there again. The 50, 200, and upper BB are all providing overhead resistance, but it wasn't an issue a month and a half ago, although it does appear to be the profit-taking catalyst for the most recent top earlier this month. I haven't bought it yet, but I'm going to try this time if it can tag $3.50.
As for Alexco's fundamentals, the company is in Canada and claim to be Canada's only primary silver producer. Their resources look good (http://www.alexcoresource.com/s/keno_hill.asp?ReportID=567444), more indicated than inferred. I sort of see their weakness being the same as Silver Wheaton's, i.e., they will catch a sustained bid when silver does. Until then, I'll monitor the $3.50 level and look out for more good news, such as their recent press releases about the Birmingham and Flame & Moth sites: http://www.alexcoresource.com/s/news.asp?daterange=2013/01/01...2013/12/31 Overall, I still like this company, especially in the current (cheap) environment for the miners.
