Know The International Function of Cause and Effect in 2015 with Intelligence Bullets
If your investments throughout the year of 2014 were too lackluster for your tastes -- especially given the overall strength of the market recovery -- it's time to get help on your side as you choose the best investments in 2015. There's a lot to like about the investment atmosphere for the next fiscal year, but like any other year in the market, the better informed you are, the more likely you are to pull off a big winner. What happens in the overseas markets of Singapore or in the mines in Chile or in the parliament house of Sweden affects the prices of the commodities and your ability to profit from them. Often times it's not enough just to pick up a newspaper and invest based on the headlines: you need better analysis of major happenings on your side. How can this Intelligence Bullets newsletter be helpful for choosing better investments that outperform the competition in the next 365 days?
World Events And Aftermath
When South African mines go on strike or when Russian electrical grids fail, what will be the future of a commodity like silver or oil? It's hard to pay attention to everything going on in the world on a daily basis, especially in an age where every nation has significance to the global economy. Our team of analysts at Intelligence Bullets pay attention to the big and the small so that you don't have to. What's more, we break down the biggest happenings across the world into bite-sized bits that get to the bottom line: how does it impact your holdings? We provide answers for investors that are more complex and helpful than simply "buy" or "sell" -- instead giving an outlook for the near future in order to better react to market changes, with contingency plans for certain events. As with all investment happenings, sometimes particular world events aren't good news for your own holdings. When there are serious consequences, our advice can help you weather the storm or even find a profit from an alternate commodity that is rising on a high tide as another sinks with the water going out. Look no further than the run to dump oil and gas in 2014: while both commodities lost tremendous value, in oil's case dropping by about half of its value since June alone, the lowered demand for the two resources caused a jump in the price of coal since more investors were looking for a solid commodity to fall back on.
Commodities In Flux
Any financial advisor will tell you to put a significant portion of your investments in commodities and, especially, in precious metals, to the point where as much as one quarter of your total net worth lies in these highly-valued metals. That's easy enough to say, especially when they get 5% of whatever your investments make, but it's more difficult to know what's the best metals to put your money behind. Our newsletters break down the changing performances of precious metals relative to one another and to the greater economy in order to demonstrate which one merits your financial backing. While everyone else said to invest in gold in 2014 because it had to bounce back in 2013, our analysis argued to invest in palladium instead due to the increasing difficulty in mining the latter compared to the rich new nodes discovered for the former. The end result was that gold lost about 10% of its total value in 2014 while palladium gained over $100 per ounce. The Intelligence Bullets analysis of commodities isn't based on the status quo, but rather because major events have a great practical effect of supply but not necessarily demand: we look at a world that's rapidly growing in supply of one commodity while the other becomes far more scarce, while most financial advisors simply look at a commodity that's typically in demand -- gold considered to be far more valuable and desired than palladium. The status quo said gold, we said palladium. It's nice to be right.
How much your holdings are worth in this country may not be the same as how much your holdings are worth if you were to head north of the border and try your luck on the Canadian stock market. The international currency game plays by different rules when it comes to commodities, with resources being worth more or less depending on the region. Sometimes the best investment advice isn't to change your investments but rather to change the currency you use to buy and sell these investments. That's why Intelligence Bullets looks at the costs on a global scale in order to determine what is and is not a profitable sale. In an age where Forex trading allows you to go onto the Tokyo stock market as soon as Wall Street shuts down for the night, it's possible to capitalize on fluctuations in prices 24 hours per day. There's nearly five trillion Forex trades per year and, for those willing to stake their claim on a global scale, there's no limit to the amount of money (dollars, Euros, pounds, yen, pesos, rubles) to be made. We take a glance at how commodities are trading on the other side of the world -- or sometimes just with our close neighbors -- in order to help get a better understanding of when to put a different type of money where your mouth is. That way, the prospects of making capital off of any given commodity expand by the number of nations where people are interested in buying and selling it.
What was one of the biggest reasons for the drop in gold prices during the 2014 year? If you paid closed attention like Investment Bullets did, you knew that it wasn't all about the higher output from mines that inflate supply, but also about how the European Central Bank decided to cut interest rates in order to stimulate a lagging Eurozone. The announcement in September of 2014, in fact, led to a three-month-low in the price of gold per ounce. Politics determine economies and economies determine commodity prices in turn. Our newsletter looks at the government influences on the prices of precious metals, energy, and footstuffs both in domestic and international political arenas. The choices made by institutions like the Federal Reserve and International Monetary Fund go a long way towards the put, hold, buy, sell, short, and long values you see on gold markets today. To better understand their influence, we provide analysis of the major government and intra-government decisions.
