When investors consider parking money in mining shares, there are a few key indicators that they need to watch. In this part, we’ll discuss the RSI (relative strength index) levels and call implied volatility. Mining stocks’ volatility can often be higher than the metals.
Call implied volatility is used to measure the fluctuations in an asset’s price, given the variations in the price of its call option. The RSI indicates whether a share is overpriced or underpriced—above 70 suggests that it’s overbought and below 30 suggests that it’s oversold.
Call implied volatility and RSI level
The above mining shares’ RSI levels have recovered recently. Sibanye Gold, Agnico Eagle Mines, Silver Wheaton, and Randgold Resources have RSI scores of 76.5, 41.7, 82.2, and 51.3, respectively. These RSI numbers indicate that the mining stocks’ prices have rebounded after the fall in September.
An RSI level above 70 indicates that the share price might fall, while an RSI below 30 indicates that the price might rise.
Mining shares’ 30-day trailing returns are mixed.
