Commodities Coming Alive Again!

Bookmark and Share

Hello All:

As much as I am certain that everyone loves the Fed for hijacking this currency of ours, the USD, and manipulating it to no end, it does not seem that their words mean much anymore. Draghi this morning in Europe called for good times in the Eurozone and assuredly after their successful paper printing, now their economy is on the way to recovery. Good for them as it seems somebody believes him as the USD/ EURO tumbles down.

I am probably one of the biggest USD bears you will ever meet and now if this nail on the coffin holds, we could see a reactivation of the DEAD asset class called commodities. We are at key support and there is no reason to believe it will hold now and then race to 92.00 and lower.

Why you may ask? Large commodities traders (energies and grains) are now trading in BITCOIN and that new volume will only increase over time. Brazil and China are now trading directly in their own currency. The Middle East is doing away with Petrodollar. This is the sign of the times. USD is losing its place as world reserve currency. Inflation of commodities is soon to come.

SILVER AND SUGAR are two of the most undervalued commodities. Sugar by far has taken a hit although USDA's last report shows us that it could possibly float higher. If you want to know details of my price targets, feel free to call me or email me.

Best Regards
