  • The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That’s one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can ever help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population — the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority - Henrik Ibsen.

  • The mainstream (corporate) media is nothing less than the unofficial accomplice of the banking crime syndicate which is running/ruining our markets and economies. Nowhere is this despicable relationship more apparent than in its deliberate efforts to grossly misinform investors on the critical subject of risk.

    Jeff Nielsen

  • The business of investing rationally becomes problematic when market participants are pursuing maximum nominal returns without a second thought as to the real (inflation-adjusted) value of those returns and the location of the savings.

  • Comparing the currencies is like picking the prettiest horse in the glue factory. The history of all fiat currencies shows they all end up being valueless. Gold’s nobody else’s liability and it has no counterparty risk. It’s provided protection against destruction of wealth for centuries and we’re at the cusp of another major chapter in its illustrious history.

  • The day is close where we shall see double top breakouts on most of the Point & Figures charts below (Copper and the Reuters Commodity index) ...and resistance will become support. That day will be the OFFICIAL beginning of the hyperinflation  cycle...AND THESE ARE THE DAYS...
  • Uh...no inflation? Who pretends this... the price of Cotton and Coffee are exploding. The price of rubber has gone up by 400%. Grains are next...and Cattle...and Corn...and Rice
  • Where are the Talking Heads pretending we would see price deflation? First comes hyperinflation, later on deflation. The moving averages of almost all commodities show a positive cross-over. Point and Figure charts cascade reversals...Most commodity charts are preparing a Bull run of at least 30% to 40%. This is a inflation and not a deflation scenario! REAL ASSETS are booming and will continue to do so for some time..... [exceptions are High Order Capital Goods - the value of some goods will go up in nominal terms only]
  • Authorities pretending we're only seeing a temporary spike!? Absolutely NOT true.
  • Expect the sliding dollar and QE to infinity to add fire to the inflation....
Published January 2009:
  • Beginning of 2009, all commodities have bottomed. Others have reversed course. This rather looks like the return of Inflation instead of Deflation, doesn't it?! Anticipate shortages and dramatically higher prices of key base-industrial-commodities going forward – likely to materialize in the second half of 2009 and in 2010.

  • Mid 2009 we have plenty of reversals on the charts "and" Bullish Cross-overs of the 50 and 200 day Moving Averages: Copper, the CRB index, the CCI index,....

  • "Commodities are REAL ASSETS. All of the commodities are poised to rise in an ongoing major bull market rise in the years to come. Especially the LOCG (low order consumer good) commodities (food and energy). Whatever happens to the economy, the instrument used to exchange goods has been debased and is becoming worthless. Only the Herd still lives in denial. The coming Hyperinflation will change this.

  • We are seeing the confirmation of a shift from HOCG (high order capital goods) to LOCG (low order consumer goods). As explained by Ludwig von Mises this process is part of the Credit Crunch and the cleansing of the economic system. As we write these lines [May 2009], China is accumulating LOCG (food and energy).

  • We expect Commodities to be the 'life time investment' opportunity for next years. The deleveraging and the Garage sale has created a situation which will be at the very origin of a huge bounce in prices. The 2008 action is a HUGE BEAR trap. The lower gold and silver prices are forced via manipulation, the higher prices will rise at some future point. Higher then would otherwise have been the case.


The world hasn’t figured out yet that John Maynard Keynes’ policies are flawed and dangerous.

Commodities are in the next leg of their long-term bull market starting in 2009. The action will be a reaction to the 2008 crash who caused SUPPLY destruction.

Commodities such as oil, grains, precious metals, etc. had a great up leg in early 2008 and then had a brutal correction during the second half. Although much of it is attributed to deflation and “demand destruction”, these conditions are short-lived. Two basic reasons; shortages (supply destruction) and rising inflation. Since government policy makers will make every effort to avert an economic contraction, they will flood the economy with inflation and renewed government spending. Economic policy decision-makers at the federal level think that “increased consumption” is the key to economic growth because they are influenced by the Keynesian school of economics. The bottom line is that conditions are ripe for commodities to resume their bull market and reach new highs during 2009-2010. As an offshoot of this, you will also see conflicts across the globe tied to natural resources as countries with growing populations need more food, water, energy, etc.

In contrast to real estate, the supplies of foodstuffs never reached an excessive level, as stockpiles are at multi-decade lows. Very few consumers ever speculated in food, while “flipping” of real estate was common. Food-related ETFs didn’t even exist a few years ago, that’s how novel investing in food is. Although builders became very wealthy during the housing boom, farmers benefited very little until this year. Corn, wheat, soybeans and rice sell for less on the Chicago Board of Trade than they did a year ago, while costs have jumped. Now that banks are reluctant to extend credit, the capital investment in agriculture will shrink to an unsustainably low level. Those are indications of a major market bottom, not a recently popped bubble.

The current fear and state of turmoil in the market is creating incredible long term buying opportunities in the commodities (Palladium, Silver, Copper, Platinum, Coffee, soybean etc) sector.

Investors should treat such extreme conditions as opportunities rather than take the herd mentality and view them as disasters; historically the masses have always been on the wrong side of the equation and there is no reason to expect anything different this time either.

A Commodity Super Cycle has been in existence for over 100 years.

The peaks have occurred 30 years apart. These cycles began after the Federal Reserve System and the Internal Revenue System were created in 1913. The Federal Reserve System and the Internal Revenue System are not only still in existence but have grown larger every year since 1913. Since they are still here and larger than ever it is highly probable that the Commodity Super Cycles are still in place. Let’s take another look at the cycles I am referring to.

The top or peak of the first commodity “Super-Cycle” occurred in 1920. This was seven years after the Federal Reserve System was established. The tops occurred in 1920, 1950, and 1980, and the current cycle is on course to peak in 2010. From here on out the action should be fast and furious right up to the top. We know that the peak of the last gold bull market occurred in January 1980. That was the peak in Super-Cycle III. It appears that the current bull market in gold has a high probability of peaking with the 30 year Super-Cycle IV.  W. D. Gann

The last commodity bear market went on for 22 years, and only just ended 5+ years ago. We've spent much of the past 5 years simply regaining price levels that in some cases hit multi-decade lows. In the 1990's for example, humanity enjoyed prices on some commodities not seen for 30-40 years.

And in the last 5 years, commodities were hardly an investment theme the general public participated in. The public complained about commodity prices--they didn't invest in them. They preferred the Dotcoms, Financials, Industrials and Real Estate. No investments in Oil stocks, Copper stocks, Agricultural stocks or Gold and Silver mines.  Recently the Institutional Investor has only started to observe the commodity market. Deutsche Bank as of August 4, 2008 has even called it a top.

Tell your banker you want to buy Gold and/or Silver and he will have to call Headquarters to save him out. Tell him you want to take physical delivery and you will see smoke come out of his ears. Since there is no "Volcker crunch" of 15-20% interest rates, it should be pitifully obvious, even to women, children and the blind, that the gold and commodities bull will continue until interest rates rise above M3 money supply growth. Those calling for an end of the commodity boom make a terrible mistake.

Deflation Scare is the Perfect Camouflage for a Hyperinflationary policy!

The deflation scare currently hovering over the entire market, particularly in the metals and commodities sectors, has been brutal. But important today is that this “scare” cannot and will not evolve into a genuine deflation.  What we have today is falling asset prices in, specifically, real estate, commodities and stocks, and a rise in the value of the US dollar. This has led many to wrongfully conclude that we are not only experiencing a deflation scare, but that a depression brought on by a deflationary collapse is imminent. The massive bail out programs and government interventions result in MONETARY INFLATION which will lead us into a Hyperinflation cycle.

BACKWARDATION AND CONTANGO

One of the easiest measures of whether fundamental or speculative forces are driving a market is to look at the spread between the 1st and 2nd month contracts. If the commodity is in backwardation, (where the 1st month is at a premium to the 2nd) it is taken to indicate a short-term supply deficit. If the spread is in contango, as is normally the case, the size of the contango can give us some additional information.

If the spread is tight, and one would expect most contangos to be tight with interest rates so low, then the potential for an exogenous force being applied is reduced. However, if there is a wide spread, and prices are moving upwards, it suggests that investors are buying longer dated contracts, and in the process, pushing them to a premium over the front month. This may suggest tracking funds are becoming more active.
