    Question Which commodities / metals will creep up if global economy continues to hum along?

    Different websites offer different advice. Of course, I will not be speculating on futures but investing in explorer/producer stocks. Just wondering which commodities that fell hard would be creeping back up because of the economics.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ed_commodities

    Grains, food and fiber
    • corn
    • oats
    • rough rice
    • soybeans
    • wheat
    • milk cocoa
    • coffee cotton sugar
    • orange juice


    Energy
    • oil
    • ethanol
    • natural gas
    • heating oil


    Industrial
    • copper
    • lead
    • zinc
    • tin
    • aluminum
    • nickel
    • cobalt

    • platinum
    • palladium

    I know metal went up so much last year and got a boost from Trump's victory.

    Would looking at the inventory in the LME vault for metals be a good indicator?

    Have to do a little research on sugar to see where it took off in the K wave I think it was up something like 6000% in the 70s. I m looking for deflationary crash as next major play with OTM puts though price structure not there yet so standing aside. Some point after that will look closer @ sugar

    I remember when copper used to be called doctor copper for having a PHD in economics as they used to call it.

    I am betting the outlook for zinc is going to be bright for the next few years. Went somewhat big on Tinka Resources (TK). I'm not pumping just saying what I bought recently.

    but yeah, like other holdings, we should know when to sell close to the peak.


    This commentary seem to suggest copper and zinc because of supply and demand fundamentals

    Phosphate and some base metals such as zinc and copper seem to have a more attractive short-term outlook. Prices of bulk minerals, the stars of the previous boom decade, are nowadays close to cash-cost regimes. In any case, our analysis shows more than half the mining commodities studied in healthier, greenfield price regimes by the end of the decade; the exceptions include aluminum, nickel, iron ore, and potash.

    Gold would be a good bet if everything goes to hell so to speak.

    Gold and silver are both severely manipulated lower in price but we don't know when these guys will lose control, which is the problem.
