The Boss Energy Ltd (ASX: BOE) share price is sinking despite no news coming out of the Australian uranium producer.

Boss Energy isn’t alone in its losses. The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) has fallen at one point more than 2% – or 150 points – today. Additionally, the S&P/ASX 200 Materials Index (ASX: XMJ) is down a whopping 3.6% at the time of writing.

While Boss Energy doesn’t call either index home, it’s suffering alongside its uranium peers that do.

The Boss Energy share price is currently 28.5 cents, 17.39% lower than its previous close.

Let’s take a look at what’s dragging down ASX uranium stocks today.

Why Boss Energy in the ASX red today?

Boss Energy’s shares are plunging lower alongside most of the company’s ASX uranium peers.

As The Motley Fool reported earlier today, ASX uranium shares might be falling in reaction to some of the world’s largest uranium companies struggles on other exchanges on Friday.

Of course, Australia and the ASX wake up and get to trading first. Therefore, by the time global uranium stocks tumbled on Friday, ASX market watchers had likely packed up for the weekend.

Meaning, today was the first chance many ASX investors had to react to the apparently shifted stance on uranium.

Additionally, today’s fall follows an incredible recent gain which saw the Boss Energy share price boosted 150% in a month.

Even with today’s losses, Boss Energy’s stock is still 103% higher than it was 30 days ago.

Boss Energy’s great month came as the price of uranium soared amid a feared shortage of the material.

However, the price of uranium hasn’t fallen today.

That likely means Boss Energy’s stock’s struggles could simply be a rebalancing of the ASX uranium market amid a broader materials slump.
