Bread, it is said, is the staff of life. Or at least it was, before beating up on gluten became all the rage. But whatever your dietary choices, if you’d been investing in bread — or, more precisely, the stuff that goes into it — over the past few weeks, you’d be feasting on a pretty satisfying repast right now.

Prices for wheat futures have been soaring. In little more than a week after June 27, July futures at the Chicago Board of Trade (the most liquid wheat derivatives market in the world) rose about... CLICK HERE for the complete article

Buy Commodities?  Why? Well, because the stocks/commodities ratio says so…

Based on the Stocks/Commodities ratio chart we have been following and sharing for the last several years, it’s now time to start buying commodities; at least in a greater proportion to stocks. Why? Well, because the Stocks/Commodities ration just made a round trip and interestingly even the timing is symmetrical. The visuals below should help explain....

Lithium Batteries for Autos and Home Storage

Someday, as sneaky years whisper past, batteries will be seen to have been a crucial wave of the investing future. Uses for lithium ion batteries (LIB) are expanding and will be the main technology for mobility and stationary storage for many years to come. LIB's have been improved over the last 25 years, but it might take that long for any new battery design to pass through the development process to ensure they are safe for consumer use. Electrification of vehicles and the storage of green energy is driving massive growth in LIB cell manufacturing, forecast to increase 170% from today's current capacity of 103 GwH to 278 GwH by 2021 to meet the demands of electrification of automotive vehicles. Also, lithium batteries will be used for stationary storage in houses; they would charge with wind or sunlight present, to be consumed later. Many will buy rooftop solar along with batteries. The 2015 world market value of lithium ion batteries was $18 billion and is forecast to double to $36 billion by 2025—which we personally believe will be much larger.

The newest bear market is in crude oil.

Two months later, it was even lower. During the past 20 years, the SPX has struggled when oil fell into a bear market!

Oil prices broke to a fresh seven-month low on June 21st, 2017, with WTI Crude Oil dropping to $42 per barrel. The renewed and heightened pessimism over the pace of rebalancing has sunk in as O.P.E.C., is struggling to reduce its’ inventory. U.S. shale continues to grow production. There are large volumes of supply back in the market at the worst possible time!
