Nothing specific to Romarco, it appears.  Gold and gold stocks are both down recently.  It appears that hope for resolution of the fiscal cliff is making stocks more attractive.  With that, people move a bit out of gold, so gold goes down, and gold stock with it.

Upturn?  For Romarco relative to other gold stocks, I expect an uptrend overall until the permit is granted, and a nice jump when it is.   What gold stocks will do relative to other stocks depends on the price of gold, and I can't venture any special thoughts on that.
