If Gold Crosses This Line, It’s “Off to the Races”

Last week and so far this week, the price of gold has also traded above the 9-12 month cycle moving average. These are both signs that those cycles have bottomed, and are poised to turn up.

I suggested a couple of low risk plays to participate in a rally. Both gold itself, and the mining stocks have since had a nice move. Here's a brief look at the outlook, and a review of my suggested strategy...

Element 23: The Most Important Commodity You’ve Never Heard Of

Forget about lithium, last year’s “White Petroleum.” It’s about to be left in the dust. The mineral of the moment is Vanadium…the key to the next energy revolution. Analysts pegged it as the “metal to watch” in January. And they were right. The price of vanadium has soared 300% in the past three years. According to Bushveld Minerals’ CEO, vanadium was the best performing battery mineral of 2017. It’s already a hot commodity for the steel industry…but that’s just the beginning. The mineral is about to be in high demand, thanks to its role in a revolutionary new battery technology and the burgeoning steel industry in the U.S...

If you were looking for the perfect energy stock. What would it look like? First, you'd look for an incredibly rare element... one with limited supply. Second, you'd want an element now under the radar... but about to break out with huge potential demand. Third, you'd want a company with a virtual monopoly on the element. And these three things may well have just aligned. There's a new metal -- not any of the usual precious or rare earth metals -- that is seeing demand soar. And one little-known miner has a virtual monopoly on U.S. supply...
