Rare earth miners, who had a difficult 2011 thanks to falling metal prices, are shooting higher today. Short-covering could be a factor: As of Dec. 30, Molycorp (MCP +6.6%), Avalon Rare Metals (AVL +3.8%), and Rare Element Resources (REE +6.5%) all had large chunks of their floats shorted.

    This is just the beginning….

     

    We will see one of the biggest short-covering spikes ever! + all coupled with a strong fundamental story for buying MCP.

     

    MCP should be up $5-$7 before the end of the week.

     

    1.5 hours into today and already 3.6M shares traded, Major spikes above 100k at 6:45PST, 7:15PST, 7:17PST (177k), 7:20PST, & 7:27PST.
