Price at trade post: $13.45
Option Strategy: [private_monthly]diagonal call spread[/private_monthly]

Reasoning: With most gold miners, like EGO, not participating in gold's rise from it's low on Dec 29, we think [private_monthly]it's the miners time to shine. EGO is a best of breed miner and boasts solid fundamentals. Technically, EGO has a good level of support at $13.10. The trade we're initiating allows for a breakeven with EGO trading as low as $12.55 on Mar 16. It should also be noted that EGO does report earnings the morning of Feb 24, but we think that this trade can weather some negative news.[/private_monthly]
