These Mining Stocks Could Pull Ahead Before Next Month
2021 has been a strange year for mining stocks in the market so far. Mining stocks experienced quite a price increase in the first week of January. This came as gold prices rose up past $1,900 for the first time in a long time. Many analysts thought this could be the chance for the yellow metal to push itself past $2,000 just like it did back in 2020.
But then gold prices fell in the second week of January, which caused a pull back for most mining stocks. So where do things stand as of January 27th you may be wondering. On the 27th, gold prices fell down a bit for one primary reason. New data was released that announced orders for long lasting U.S. factory goods rose 0.2% in December.
So what is the problem? Well, the expected advance was actually closer to 0.9%. So on the day of January 27th, gold prices fell about $10. But is this really that significant if gold prices are still holding above $1,840? It is important, but it is also good that gold has been able to keep itself above this key price point. On the same day April Comex gold future went down 0.60%. This increase in durable goods was a result of machinery type items that totaled $0.4 billion. Now we await to see what the next big news in the mining sector or the world will be. The pandemic still has a large impact on mining stocks and is part of the reason that precious metal prices have stayed at current price points. Now let’s take a look at the top four mining stocks to watch as we gear towards the end of January 2021.
