Gold stocks

Is Gold Losing Its Shine to Bitcoin?

Gold has barely reacted to any of the global tensions of late. Bitcoin, on the other hand, has stolen the spotlight. Perhaps it’s become the ‘new’ gold? I doubt it. I’m not concerned about gold’s future. I still believe it will go higher when the time is right. That could happen sooner rather than later.
Copper price

Why You Should Become an Electrician

You may have heard it referred to as ‘Dr Copper’. That’s because the base metal is so widely utilised that some pundits use it to measure the pulse of the world economy. The copper price has surged to its highest level in six weeks.

Gold to Take Off When the Missiles Fly

Of course, if geopolitical tensions keep climbing, gold could surge higher. But the yellow metal needs to close above the upper black horizontal line. That’s major resistance level at US$1,297 per ounce. If it clears that, gold could revisit this year’s high. That should be good news for gold stocks.
oil stocks

The ‘Good’ News for ASX Oil Stocks

Pay attention to what’s happening in the Middle East. If Saudi Arabia makes another unpredictable move — one which could happen at any time — it could be good news for ASX-listed crude and oil stocks.

Saudi Arabia’s Gambit to Boost Oil Prices

To break even next year, Saudi Arabia needs oil prices to stay above US$70 per barrel. I believe there’s an extremely low chance of oil prices staying above that level, let alone hitting it. That is, unless a major war breaks out in the Middle East. That’s why Saudi Arabia appears to want a bigger war in the region to drive crude prices sharply higher.
commodities stocks

Better than Winning the Melbourne Cup

You could still make a fortune. Not from horse racing. But from buying the right stocks in the right sector. I’m not talking about bitcoin or technology either. I’m talking about commodities — the flavour of the month.

The Looming Gold Bull Market

The yellow metal might not break out tomorrow. But it’s bound to happen. And it should create multiple new millionaires. So, while we wait for the bull market, let’s just go with the flow. There are still big profits to be made today.

Why You Should Buy Copper Stocks Now Before the Next Global War

With global tensions rising by the day, there’s a good chance the world’s heading towards another war. Copper is arguably more important than any other metal when it comes to military applications. It’s a vital component in ammunition, ships, tanks, helicopters, rifles and thousands of other military supplies.

The Looming US Stock Market Correction

My view is that we’re well overdue for a stock market correction. There hasn’t been a 10% correction since January 2016. That’s not normal in a healthy bull market. Perhaps the change in trend could have something to do with Trump’s tax bill.

Why Crude Oil’s Run Simply Won’t Last

Crude oil’s definitely had a good run. But, unfortunately, one rally — an impressive one at that — doesn’t make a bull market. Crude oil still isn’t in a bull market. This is a two-year rally, just like many other commodities. I believe, unless a war breaks out in the Middle East, we should still see new lows in the months ahead.

Here’s a Free Tip: Crude Oil Stocks

People ask me all the time what stock they should buy. With that in mind, here’s my free tip: Trade with the trend. It makes life so much easier. After months of trading above US$50 per barrel, oil prices have started to surge higher. That’s something we must respect.
