Cleveland-Cliffs: We're Contenders Now

Flying under-the-radar today would seem to be several materials plays snapping back amid the Dollar softening. 

Cleveland-Cliffs, below on the daily chart, is an excellent example of a "hammer" reversal candlestick from Halloween.

The strength today is another notch in the belt for the bull case for at least some type of further rally here. To be clear, a major new bull run has been elusive for materials miners since very early this year. 

However, one can envision a run into the holidays if the Dollar cools off, or at least into the December FOMC. 

Beyond non-precious miners like CLF TECK, also note precious mining ETFs like GDX and SIL are both at critical long-term levels to hold.
