What Would a Trade War Do to the Value of Exploration Companies?

Questioning what will happen to precious metal prices if a trade war causes a number of countries, including the U.S., to charge heftier tariffs on imported goods?

A bigger question is what will happen to the companies searching for these strategic minerals?

Tariffs affect the trading of imported metals, which impact price. Other factors such as interest rates, the law of supply and demand, and the strength of the dollar against foreign currencies also determine pricing. Common sense thinking leads one to believe that if a trade war causes the quantity of precious metals imported to drop and prices for imported metals to rise that this increases the value of metal owned and should benefit the companies searching for these elements destined to increase in value. We at Agoracom believe the following companies have a great chance to accrue value as the trade war continues and the companies themselves advance their projects.
