New York City, New York -- (May 24, 2013)

Industrial metals & mining companies in the U.S., as well as globally, have been facing significant challenges amid a slowdown in China, the world’s largest consumer of raw materials. Although concerns of a hard landing in China have eased, the country’s pace of growth has decelerated. This is likely to have a negative impact on demand for raw materials. On Thursday, May 23, 2013, shares in U.S. industrial metals & mining companies ended mostly lower as market participants digested disappointing manufacturing data from China. The major movers in the sector included Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. (NYSE: CLF), Peabody Energy Corporation (NYSE: BTU), Walter Energy Corporation (NYSE: WLT), McEwen Mining Inc. (NYSE: MUX), and Central Fund of Canada Limited (USA) (AMEX: CEF). StockCall has released free charting and technical research on these aforementioned companies. Register to read these reports at
