Miners not reached bottom

Rallies in the STOXX Europe 600 Basic Resources (SXPP) should be seen as selling opportunities, says Andy Dodd, Head of Technical Research at Louis Capital Markets.

As such, he says any rallies back up to their long-term downward trendlines should be seen as selling opportunities.
