Top Mining Stocks To Buy Or Sell
The market for mining stocks seems to be evolving every week or every month at this point. It started off completely normal at the top of 2020 before the pandemic struck. But the fall of the economy and cost of the dollar resulted in metal prices skyrocketing. Gold and silver for example, reached new highs in the market that had never been seen before. But where do things stand now that we have finally reached 2021? Well, the government stimulus bill for $900 billion was passed which helped mining stocks lift up in price. This is because of government stimulus hurting the economy and price of the dollar.
Now that the first week of 2021 has passed we can see how mining stocks have performed. For most of the week, it was good until a push back on January 7th that continued through the 8th. Gold prices fell back under the $1900 it reached after the new year. Things are not looking good for the government issuing more stimulus in the future which has hurt the price of metal assets. Regardless, there are many great stocks to watch in the market even in situations like this. So which stocks are the best to watch in 2021? Well, let’s take a look at four that show higher performance in 2021 so far.

But now SAND stock price has fallen to $7 a share on average after pull back on precious metal prices. This does not mean it is a bad time to invest in SAND stock though. Many investors will buy the dip on certain stocks. But keep in mind a stock’s news and volume when deciding what the best choice may be in regards to investing.

Should You Buy Mining Stocks Right Now?
Right now mining stocks are in an interesting situation. You’ve got the value of the dollar back on the rise. However, there’s still plenty of stimulus to take into consideration down the line. The previous uncertainty around who the President will be in the U.S. has now passed. So it looks like the next concern would be the lasting global pandemic. Whether or not that will remain the case is yet to be seen. However, as we saw last year, the sentiment can spark a rally in precious metals and mining stocks. In that case, it will be important to have a watch list put together.
