“Let’s talk some thing new: Long term Commodity bull market and dollar weak talks is now too boring”
A weak trend persisted in the commodity market for the past week and I expect it to remain in an uncertain zone. Meanwhile the Dollar Index was in the 71.70 to 73.18 trading range. Most talk is currently about the same issues of a weak Dollar, the commodity bull market, a weak
The markets are currently very volatile and prices are oscillating quite rapidly on both sides. Interestingly, long term positions don’t have much benefit compared to medium term trends, and this is an indication that drastic transformations have occurred with the passage of time. I have noticed that whenever prices are at the top side in any market or commodity and planets give indications of a weak trend for a few weeks, prices fall very sharply. It is therefore important that we take advantage of this. On the other hand we could derive huge profits whenever prices fall sharply and planets give a buying signal. I have therefore decided to give the long-term outlook, but at the same time, I shall also give the medium term trend since current market conditions could give better returns. We have to change according to current situations and pattern.
Back in 2002 and 2003, a 0.05 cents move in silver and a $3 to $5 move in gold were supposed to be big moves, and for that reason, long term investment was a better trade. However, that kind of movement only takes a minute to occur these days. It is therefore important to change strategies according to changing times and adapt to the current situation. For instance looking at the last 2 weeks; corn and soy bean came down around $200, oil came down around 17% from the top and the same thing happened in gold, silver and platinum. This means that we must focus on short term and medium term trading strategies at the current stage. We shall however retain the long term strategy for some core position.
Financial predictions for 28th of July to the 1st of August
GOLD & SILVER
This week gold and silver will trade in a mixed trend but I see gold coming down toward $900. Monday gold prices will trade bit positive but in
Trading Strategy: Buy gold and silver during the fall on Monday in
This week we shall have a downward trend in these side metals. Platinum has come down more than 32%, and if you plan well and execute your strategy correctly, one could make tons of money during this volatile time. Copper is in the final phase and a weak trend is poised to begin but I see Monday and Tuesday positive trend in copper.
Copper will fall sharply from next week.
Platinum will remain range bound and one can cover the short position. Zinc and Nickel will trade side ways and soon begin to move up, though not from this week.
As predicted, cotton and coffee moved up on Friday. This week both will move up for the first three days but decline from late Wednesday or Thursday. One should wait another nine days before taking a big position in coffee.
These soft commodities will all remain sideways this week. As predicted, Orange Juice came down sharply and it is now the turn for cocoa and sugar. I recommend getting out if one is holding any position in sugar or cocoa as I see them falling towards 2008 lows.
Trade carefully. Lumber will also trade weakly.
We are quite close to the stock market turn around and the rise will be very sharp especially in tech and financial sectors. A major turn around in the
While I am not very optimistic about emerging markets, the rising trend of the
I see the NASDAQ 100 touching 1900; while the S&P will trade in a very narrow trading range. Time has come to accumulate the S&P.
One should avoid the DAX and others in the European market since they are in a bear trend and lower prices are possible for the next one month. One should therefore take a short position in these markets.
Asian markets will move down sharply: Hong Kong,
Those who still want to remain in the market must sell the Asian market ETF’s and buy
This week grains will stabilize and therefore one can cover shorts on Monday and if they rise sharply then take sell position again. However, you should not buy grains as they are in a long term bear market. I recommend taking put calls in grains on Thursday as I see them rising on Wednesday and Thursday. Buy wheat against your selling position.
This week on Monday oil will trade sideways but will move down in
The trading range for oil will be $120.80 to $127.80, and the same proportion applies for other energy products.
The Dollar will rise from Monday to Wednesday but trade weakly or sideways on Thursday and Friday. This week the Euro will move towards $1.54 while the Australian Dollar will move towards $93.20.
The New Zealand Dollar and the South African Rand will move lower and one should therefore add short positions in these currencies. The British Pound will trade very weakly and the decline could continue for the entire week. I actually see the British Pound coming down to1.94 and therefore the best strategy is to sell it this week.
The Dollar index will trade in the range of $72.95 to $74.15.
