Rate Hikes Help Industrial Metals Rise Fastest - Silver, Copper & Zinc to Benefit Most

There aren’t many constants in the world of investing, and certainly not many things that rise in value like clockwork. In times of rate hikes, industrial metals rise fastest, and in today’s world, the type of metals in highest demand by China are going to rise the most. Silver is one metal that’s poised to move up & Zinc is trading for less than half of what it did in 1980.

Future Physical Silver Supply More Vulnerable Than Other Metals...Even Gold

Once the oil industry disintegrates under the weight of falling prices as costs continue to rise, the decline of base metal & gold production will impact silver the greatest. Not only will silver reserves plummet to a greater degree versus other metal reserves, so will its annual production rate. These 2 factors will make future supply of silver more vulnerable than most other metals… even gold.

Metals Zoom On Projected Massive Infrastructure Spending - How Long Before Silver Takes-Off?

Metals are surging due to projected industrial expansion.

Do Rising Gold Prices Signal an End of the Commodity Bear Market?

Is gold leading the broader commodities sector higher? To reiterate though, the commodity bear is not over yet. But keep your eye out for signs that the trend is turning around. Getting in at the end of big bear markets is always the most profitable time to invest. The recent performance of gold stocks is firm evidence of this.

Despite Oversupply, Oil Rallies on Currency Moves

Domestic oil inventories still stand at near-record levels for this time of year in at least 80 years. Because oil remains in oversupply, the recent rally owes a lot to currency moves. We might be seeing a dollar reset, which should finally give oil, gold, copper & other important commodities – the much-needed breathing room.

Copper and Aluminum Rally on Supply Deficit

Copper prices have been rebounding as demand for copper expands to a record in China & use in the U.S. climbs to the highest since 2009. Global copper inventories have fallen by almost half this year & are near the lowest since 2008. Aluminum rose to the highest in 18 months as global production trails consumption.
