Tracking The Share Price Performance Of Some FTSE 100 Listed Mining Stocks – GLEN, ANTO, AAL And BHP

Performance of the Mining sector in the United Kingdom

The mining industry, across the world, and especially in the United Kingdom has been significantly affected by the trade tensions between the United States of America and China. As per the International Monetary Fund (IMF), there has been a slowdown in the sector because of the increase in trade barriers. However, one major factor, that stopped a further slowdown in this particular industry in UK is that most of the companies in this sector, trade in the currency of US Dollars as opposed to the UK Pound Sterling, protecting them against any currency meltdown in case of Brexit or even post Brexit and hence, the outlook for the next year’s performance is expected to be very positive, with the investments within the sector, only expected to grow, after remaining record low in the current year. Amidst all the uncertainty around the other mining commodities, another positive has been gold, as the gold production space within the mining sector held an advantage over others on the fact that investors consider gold an extremely safe asset in case of any turmoil. Sector experts are of the view that there might be a further downfall in terms of productivity in the mining sector, but a correction in the production is expected to take place post-February 2020, once Brexit is a done deal.
