  • ASX200 gold miners registered considerable losses, despite the Materials sector gaining 362 points on the ASX today. 
  • The S&P/ASX200 Materials sector closed 2.462% strong at 15,062.300 on the ASX today.

The interest rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has impacted almost every business sector in Australia. Gold industry is not an exception. 

Although the S&P/ASX200 Materials sector was found performing well on the ASX today, majority of gold stocks were seen buzzing in the red territory. 

Besides the interest rate hike by RBA and inflation fears, gain in US dollars is likely another reason influencing the share market. As a result, the gold stocks are unable to perform well on the ASX.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX200 Materials sector (INDEXASX:XMJ) closed 2.462% higher at 15,062.300 on the ASX. 

Here, we have considered four well-known ASX-listed gold stocks from the ASX200 materials sector- Newcrest, Perseus, Silver Lake, and Gold Road and tried to look into their respective ASX performances.
