Looking Forward....

Recommended Posts

The Royal Mint has warned people who might consider melting down 1p and 2p copper coins to think again.

With copper prices topping $9,000 a tonne, pre-1992 copper coinage is now worth twice its face value - although newer ones are copper-plated steel.

And the US have just unveiled the new nickel. Guess what, it's now nickel plated. Turns out the nickel contained in the current one is worth more than 5 cents. Now that's really forward looking....

US unveils forward-looking nickel

The US Mint has unveiled a new design for the country's five-cent piece that breaks with decades of tradition.

The coin is meant to embody Jefferson's forward-looking vision

During the firwst half of the week, loaded up on puts, and now hold the most I ever had.

There was a thread on GEI where I called it more or less to the day. Now that it has clearly rolled over, there is a decent chance that we have just seen the high for the year

GOLD:

We may have just seen the seasonal highs, and the market could slide now into August lows

nice,I don't mind the pullback,it gives me a chance to buy on the dips,and with a favourable exchange rate too!!!!.....a little word of warning though,this pullback is mostly about estimates....they got a little too bullish,and in the case of FTSE have the exchange rate to deal with.This is temporary......what me may see is commodity prices rear their heads again in august....but for sterling viewers expect a large pullback in cable........which will help earnings.

.....once the world is screaming out for product with limited supply we have the makings of a major bull market...just don't get involved with anything remotely middle-eastern for about a year.

..or ten.

The middle east is not the problem. Nor are the "socialists" in S America.

These are just the opening salvos in the broader looming conflict with China.

All of the countries causing recent problems - Iran, Venezuela, Sudan - have been given serious economic, financial, technological and military help from China.

Until Russia is fllipped toward a more western (European) inclination our troubles will continue.

Again (like my post on oil last year ;) ) remember, you read it here first....
