Over the past three years, AGI’s, AG’s, and RGLD’s gold correlation has declined, while BTG’s has been mixed. RGLD’s three-year, two-year, and one-year correlation with gold stands at 0.68, 0.67, 0.46, respectively. A correlation of 0.46 indicates that ~46.0% of the time, RGLD moved in the same direction as gold.

Miners’ correlation with gold is a crucial factor for investors to consider, as gold dominates the four precious metals. Changes in gold affect the other precious metals as well as most mining stocks.
