What To Know About What Intelligence Bullets Knows
If you've found your way to this newsletter, you may know a bit about investing in commodities already. After all, the past decade has seen the price of gold and oil peak and fall, making major headlines around the world. There's a lot more to investing than understanding the raw prices of a metal per ounce or an energy per barrel, however, which is why many of those who try their luck on Wall Street only find themselves no better than if they had stuck their money in a high-interest savings account. With the Intelligence Bullets newsletter on your side, however, you have the tools needed to look past the big flashing numbers to the underlying causes and effects that make the commodities market tick (or not tick, depending on the situation). What are some examples about what you need to know about what Intelligence Bullets knows?
Our Take on Small Metals: Silver
It's tempting disregard silver as small potatoes. At just twenty dollars an ounce, after all, silver seems so affordable that just about anyone could go out and buy a few pounds of the metal. There's a lot to be said for small packages, however, and silver is one of the most profitable metals due to the volatility. Intelligence Bullets can help you to understand the complexities behind what appears to be a simple metal. While most analysts dismiss silver since it has a tendency to follow the price of gold, there's more to our analysis of the metal than meets the eye. We look deep to see how the industrial demand for silver affects the prices so that we can predict the rise or fall, and pass on the information to you so that you can short or long accordingly. While others look only at the demand for silver in jewelry, we take the time to study the use of silver in private enterprise. For instance, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill caused a surge in the price of silver due to the fact that the oil wells require the high-resistant metal to function as battery conductors and, with the price of oil skyrocketing, the price of silver followed suit. With lower prices comes higher volatility and greater profit, and our analysis of this metal requires analysis of its utility, something that you won't find in other sources.
Our Take on Energy: Oil
"Get out of oil", just about everyone is saying. It's a bear market for the commodity at the moment, when supply levels are cruising and the price of domestic crude is making imports look impractical. Everyone is staying to stake your fortune on another energy investment, but at Intelligence Bullets we take the historical view and urge caution. Unlike others, our analysis looks not just at the last time that oil peaked and dropped, but at the state of demand for the commodity during those moments of sheer fluctuation. If you remember the price dropping profoundly around 2008, you may recall that it took nearly two years to reach the peak growth again. What you may not recall is that demand grew by a very small factor during that time, meaning that the problem wasn't on the producer end but on the consumer end. That's the exact opposite of the trend this time, when oil use is expected to skyrocket world-wide due to the emerging middle-class markets that weren't growing after the housing bubble burst, with at least five percent growth per year over the next decade. While everyone else is saying to get out of oil and that it'll take another two years to regain its value, we're saying to get in oil because everyone wants it and nobody is going to wait two years for it.
Our Take on Big Metals: Platinum
It's easy to look at platinum and call it a victim of the 2008 recession, which is the route that most others will take when explaining its value. Intelligence Bullets helps to look deeper into the world of this ultra-valuable metal, which can outperform gold depending on the day. Too many investors say to get out of platinum at the moment, or to short-sell, because it's set to follow the performance of gold as currency values (and especially the US dollar value) rise in the near future. But platinum is unique amongst the precious metals because it, unlike gold, doesn't always follow the performance of global currencies. As such, looking at platinum since 2008 makes it tempting to say the value will only scale relative to economic growth, when it's more accurately to say that economic growth scales to platinum -- or rather, that the increase in spending value makes a higher demand for the metal, of which there is such a scarce supply that only five million new ounces are mined each year (compared with fifteen times as much gold). Intelligence Bullets looks at how platinum prices have risen not relative to currencies but relative to the forces that determine its output. Most notably, the output of South African platinum drives the commodity spot price more than any other factor (and sometimes exclusive of other factors), so we take the time to look at the South African mining operations instead of the New York spot prices in particular: after the strike of June 2014 ended, for instance, platinum soared by $100 per ounce even as financial advisors would have recommended shorting platinum because the dollar fell during the same month.
