Miners’ technicals

All these four miners are trading above their 20-day and 100-day moving averages.

A significant premium indicates that the price may fall. A considerable discount, on the other hand, suggests that a stock may see an upward correction. All four miners’ target prices are above their current trading prices. When a stock’s current price is above its target price, that indicates a negative outlook. A target price above the current price can appear positive.

The RSI levels of Newmont, Agnico-Eagle, Silver Wheaton, and Franco-Nevada are 63.1, 61.5, 67.1, and 64.4, respectively. SIL’s RSI level is 60.0.
