Gold Sleeps - While Wheat Soars
December 14, 2020 - (Gold Market Wire) - Gold continues to meander, without direction, while the focus of global commodity markets turns to the Agricultural sector. For months we have been opining on this blog that Agriculture is about to undergo a major bull market of the kind one finds once every 50 years. A simple look at the wheat chart reveals just how strong the market was last week, with a near vertical uptrend turned from a test of the lows. THIS is what a furiously strong market looks like, and investors should be strapped in for the long term. Core positions need to be built on pullbacks.

In markets you have to move to where the action is. In the days of the floor you could always tell, because when take-over fever hit a stock, the size of the crowd exploded. The number of floor traders piling in to make money was easy to see. You'd look at the floor and see where people were gathering, and the crowd could lead you to money. That's not so easy today. So you have to comb the markets, finding action. Right now that action is agriculture - and it's going to be that way for some time. There is nothing noble in watching paint dry in markets that do little. Yes, Gold will be back. It could be next week - it could be after the Georgia elections - it could come anytime. But right now, Gold is having a snooze. The worst thing a trader can do is to try and find action where there isn't any. You make poor decisions, and you get churned. Ask yourself:
Have a good trading week... a seek out the markets that are worthy of your time!
