Gold And Silver Futures Swing From Bearish To Bullish In Just Two Weeks

After holding onto huge, unprofitable long positions for months, gold and silver futures speculators are finally giving up and bailing out, while commercial traders (who take the opposite side of these trades, since every long requires an offsetting short) are closing out their shorts at a near-record pace. 

Here’s the gold data for last week, courtesy ofGoldSeek. Note the massive shift by speculators from long to short. They’re not in balance yet (where longs and shorts are equal) but they’re heading that way fast.

In silver, they’re just about in balance, which is historically about as far they usually go:


Here’s the same data for gold in graphical form with the silver bars representing speculator longs and the red showing commercial shorts. Note the long plateau followed by a rush to the middle, which is where rallies tend to begin.

For most people, the “Oracle of Omaha” needs no introduction. With a self-made net worth of $84 billion, some experts consider the 87-year-old to be the greatest investor of all-time. 

Despite his incredible achievements and decades in the public eye, the modest Midwesterner is frugal, relatable, and full of humility – and his life story is an endless source of lessons to aspiring business professionals around the world.

Gundlach’s Top ETF Recommendation

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Robert Huebscher - Advisor Perspectives

on Thursday, 07 December 2017 06:43

The money to be made is in non-U.S. markets, according to Jeffrey Gundlach. For long-term investors, he recommends a specific ETF.

That ETF is INDA, the iShares fund that tracks the Indian equity market. He singled out India because of the growth of its workforce and its tradition of education and technology.

“It could go up 1,000% in the next 20 years,” Gundlach said, “just like China did.” INDA is up 32% year-to-date and carries an expense ratio of 0.71%.

Gundlach is the founder and chief investment officer of Los Angeles-based DoubleLine Capital. He spoke at the Schwab IMPACT conference on November 16. His talk was titled, “2017: At the Home Stretch.”

I’ll go over what he said about the global economy and why he believes emerging markets are a compelling opportunity, along with some “insane” developments in various asset classes.

The global landscape

This has been a very easy year for investors, he said, with no volatility in bonds, although short rates have gone up. The S&P is up 17%, but he said investors would actually have been unlucky to have over-allocated to it, since some of the emerging markets have performed better.
