Let’s take a closer look at Regis’ bad day on the ASX.
Regis struggles on Thursday
The Regis Resources share price is sliding today despite silence from the company.
However, while there’s not much talk from Regis today, it’s among many gold companies struggling alongside the price of gold.
The price of gold has spent most of today trending lower. Right now, it’s US$1,814.60 an ounce, US$1.40 lower than it ended yesterday.
According to reporting by Reuters, while most of Australia slept, the price of gold was falling alongside the US dollar. The trend now seems to have continued beyond the US’s bedtime.
The publication states the US dollar was being weighed down by a US national employment report that found the nation’s private employers’ employment figures were below expectations.
The ASX 200 gold sector is also a sea of red. Other gold-producing giants struggling include Newcrest Mining Ltd (ASX: NCM), Northern Star Resources Ltd (ASX: NST), and Evolution Mining Ltd (ASX: EVN). Their share prices are down 1.53%, 2.37%, and 2.63% respectively.
