These four miners are trading below their shorter-term 20-day and longer-term 100-day moving averages. Even GDXJ is below its 20-day and 100-day moving averages. A considerable discount below the 20-day and 100-day moving averages could indicate a potential price rise, while a huge premium above the 20-day and 100-day moving averages suggests a probable downturn in price. The target prices for all four miners are above their current prices, indicating a positive outlook.
Relative strength index
PAAS, ABX, IAG, and HMY have RSI levels of 32.1, 23.6, 27.4, and 50, respectively. GDXJ has an RSI level of 26.7. An RSI score of lower than 30 suggests a potential rise in price, while an RSI score of above 70 indicates a probable decline in price.
