Commodity traders make billions as oil, copper, battery metals prices rise

Bloomberg News | July 1, 2021 | 2:22 pm Battery MetalsChinaUSACopperOil & Gas Cargo ships entering one busiest ports in Singapore. Stock image. Doug King set up his hedge fund in the early days of the commodity super-cycle in 2004. It was perfectly timed: voracious Chinese demand lifted the price of everything from oil to copper to record highs. Investors flooded the commodities sector. At the peak, King’s Merchant Commodity Fund was managing about $2 billion. But the boom ended abruptly after the 2008 global financial crisis and the onset of the U.S. shale revolution. Prices plunged, big institutional money got out

Don’t Ever Trade Blind – Understand The Difference Between Stocks, Options, And Futures

“Picture this – though you have been trading stocks you are still relatively new to trading.  You buy shares of well-known stocks like Apple or Amazon and sell them for profit.  While you have been doing this, along the way you have heard that there are people who trade futures and options.  If you are new, and in this example you are, you probably asked yourself “What are options and what are futures?”.   To make this very clear I will first define what stocks are, then (stock) options, and lastly futures.  After this, I will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of trading them.  Ok

Q2 To Q3 – Sounds A Bit Like A Chess Game With The Question To Answer Being: Where Will The US Stock Markets Take Us Next?

“As we watched the NASDAQ and S&P 500 rally to the end of Q2:2021, many traders asked themselves “Will this rally continue throughout the early part of Q3:2021 and beyond?”.  Although we don’t have a crystal ball to tell you exactly what is going to happen, our price modeling systems, predictive modeling tools and trend analysis systems suggest we will likely see continued upside price trending through at least July 15th to 21st. After the middle of July, we may see another pullback in trends as the markets shift away from the reflation trade expectations and start to react to

Is Silver Currently The Dark Horse Of Precious Metals?

Chris Vermeulen joins Elijah K. Johnson from Liberty & Finance to discuss the upside potential of silver over gold. Though historically gold has been the precious metal to watch, silver is currently showing a bullish chart pattern. This indicates that people are accumulating silver. “As long as momentum and the accumulation continues,” Chris Vermeulen of The Technical Traders says, “we’re going to see this eventually break to the upside.” “Chris and his team are providing investors with a great road map for the direction of the markets, which is why I am also a paid subscriber to TheTechnicalTraders services and

With Three Trading Days Left Before The End of Q2:2021 – Will The Markets Lead Us To Temptation Or Back To Work?

Headed into the July 4th holiday weekend, we have 3 more trading days in Q2:2021. We are starting to see a continual grinding higher in the US major indexes and various market sectors.  The one thing my team and I believe is happening in the markets right now is “moderate complacency”. After the FOMC statements just a few weeks ago and the continued support of the US Fed, the markets entered a period of moderate volatility.  Currently, the markets appear to be settling in for moderately strong earnings expectations as Q2:2021 comes to a close.  That means the markets will start

Are The US Major Indexes Rolling Over In An Excess Phase Peak Setup?

Recently, I published a research article on Bitcoin suggesting there may be a bigger downside price move setting up – breaking support near $30k and extending the Excess Phase Peak pattern that we warned about back in November 2020.  Today, my team and I wanted to alert you that the recent price rotation in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Transportation Index COULD setup in an early stage (Phase #2) peaking formation similar to what started the recent down trend in Bitcoin. The setup of the Excess Phase peak pattern consists of an exuberant rally to a peak (Phase

The Warrant Report For The Week Ended June 18, 2021

And just like that (4 days) gold is back below $1800. I like it as we needed this correction and now we are getting to oversold territory with the RSI on Gold at 27 and RSI approaching 30 on both Silver and the GDXJ. This bottom could be firmly in place sooner than some think. Check out this chart on Gold with Friday’s close of $1769 on the Continuous Contract Investors must make their own decision as to the short-term and long-term direction in gold, silver, mining shares, and the warrants trading on those shares but personally I as an

Base metals demand expected to benefit from green revolution – report

Valentina Ruiz Leotaud | June 19, 2021 | 4:14 am Base MetalsChinaEuropeCopperNickel Wind power. (Image by matthiasboeckel, Pixabay). A report by market researcher CRU Group forecasts that demand for zinc, copper, and nickel will continue to grow in the next two decades, particularly in China where government stimulus may drive it to levels even higher than what was predicted in pre-pandemic forecasts. The rest of the world, however, will continue to work towards recovering last year’s losses, particularly because covid-19 remains the key risk in the short term in developing countries. Yet, the green revolution – despite accounting for less than 5% of global copper demand

Copper, gold price bulls nurse their wounds but fight’s not over yet

Bloomberg News | June 18, 2021 | 1:17 pm IntelligenceMarketsChinaUSACopperGoldIron OreOil & Gas Wounded bull. (Stock image) The commodities boom has taken a knock this month, and while there are many reasons to still bet on a so-called supercyle, it’s unlikely to be plain sailing. Vast amounts of stimulus, economies reopening from the pandemic and strong Chinese demand have driven a surge in raw-material prices this year, some to record highs. Yet they’ve slumped in the past two weeks — with some wiping out gains for the year — on a more hawkish U.S. monetary policy tone, China’s bid to cool inflation pressures and better

What Is The New Norm In the Stock Market When It Seems Normal No Longer Exists?

Covid 19 and the havoc it has created in world economies is unlike anything we have seen before. Yet when we look at the stock market charts they continue to go up.  We have bad jobs data – the markets respond and go up.  We have poor CPI – the markets go up.  The housing data misses – the markets go up.  It is like bouncing off Teflon.  What used to cause rifts in the markets now cause the opposite.  In this upside-down world, this has become the norm.  Since March 18, 2020 until now we have had the following

Wall Street Smart Money Is Accumulating Physical Silver Ahead Of New Basel III Regulations And Price Explosion To $44 An Ounce

Recently, Gold and Silver have somewhat stalled after a fairly solid upside price trend in April and May 2021.  Looking at the longer-term Weekly Silver chart, we believe Silver is ready to pounce with a big move higher. The second half of 2021 will welcome BASEL III (likely) and a renewed focus by the US Federal Reserve (and Global Central banks) working to contain inflationary aspects of the recovering global economy while also attempting to support continued growth objectives.  I believe precious metals, in particular – Silver, have shown a very unique “Accumulation Phase” over the past 12+ months that
