    Didn't you hear? They are going to start mining the asteroids and moon for gold and platinum. Plenty up there for the taking for centuries.

    this happens every cycle,

    the sector gets hammered, then cash dries up, and reserves dwindle.
    those charts are just reflecting this fact is all,

    the positive is................ 'the cure for low prices is low prices'
