Technicals of mining stocks
These four miners are trading at premiums to their 20-day and 100-day moving averages except for AngloGold, which is trading at a discount to its 20-day and 100-day moving averages.
A high premium over a stock’s price indicates that the price could fall. A significant discount to a stock’s price suggests a possible rise in the price.
These miners’ target prices are higher than their current trading prices. When the current price is higher than the target price, it indicates a negative outlook. However, a target price above the current price indicates a positive outlook.
The RSI levels of these miners have also recovered. The SIL ETF has an RSI of approximately 62.
