The Pause Before The Bull Run In Commodities – 121 Mining Investment

(Kitco News) - Growing stability in the U.S. economy is pushing equity markets to record highs but now is the time when investors should look for value, and there is no better place to start than the resource sector, according to one executive of an exclusive mining investment summit.

Pablo Martin, one of the creators behind the 1-2-1 Mining Conference, said that although interest in the mining sector is low, it is growing. Martin’s comments come as investment sentiment in the mining sector hovers at its lows for the year. The VanEck Vectors Gold Miners exchange-traded fund (NYSE: GDX) is currently trading at $20.43, down more than 1% on the day. 

The junior mining sector is also suffering with the VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners exchange-traded fund (NYSE: GDXJ) last trading at $28.68, down more 1.44% on the day, trading near its lowest level since mid-December.

“I think mining markets are pausing a little for thought, trying to gauge where things are, but I don’t see this is a major dip. Investors are resting up for when the bull market starts; it’s coming,” he said.

The mining summit, to be held in New York City June 4 and 5, brings together accredited, high-net worth investors, fund managers, and market analysts with a variety of mining executives for one-on-one financial and investment discussions.

“The smart investors are here now when prices are low,” he said. “If you want to buy equities with good management teams at low prices, now is the time to do it. We will continue to get more generalist investors as the market turns and picks up.”

As to the themes at this year conference, Pablo said that there is always solid interest in the precious metals sector as investors look for safe-haven assets amidst growing uncertainty in financial markets.
