Money Will Rotate Into These Dead Investments

Seasoned investors understand that investments which are rocketing to new highs and all over the news will eventually fall out of favor and become a the poor performer, unwanted by market participants.

So it only makes sense that the underperforming investments will some day come back to life and provide opportunity once again. I covered this unique stage analysis in great detail in another report linked below.

If you want to see my forecast and charts I did on June 26th, 2013 pointing to the key investment levels for precious metals and miners which by the way have been dead READ HERE.


Current Stock Market & Commodity Investment Analysis

Two of the weakest investments have been commodities and precious metals since 2011. The Canadian stock market is heavily weighted with these resource stocks and is the reason for its under performance when compared to the SP500.

The time will come when commodities bottom and this will send the Canadian stock market back to the 2014 highs or better.

Take a look at the chart below. You will see the SP500, gold miner index, Canadian market, and the commodity index. What you notice see is that the US stock market has been the hot investment of choice, while commodities and precious metals have been falling for years.

No one is excited about investing in commodities or precious metals, and it makes sense. Anyone holding these investments has had a terrible couple of years and lost most of their capital. The last thing they want to do is buy more.

The good news is that this mind set eventually creates huge opportunities for the savvy, patient, investor like you and I. The hardest part is waiting for the psychology of investors to be completely out of favor, and only then can an investment bottom. This often takes years, and it has been for resources.

The 2007-2008 Resource Double Top and Drop

Bull market tops take months 6-12 months to form before price truly rolls over and starts a bear market. Most traders and investor try to pick tops but because this process is so painfully long, most get shaken out or give up well before the top has completed it's topping phase.

What I am interested in is the Canadian index and resource type plays. The US stock market looks and feels as though it's trying to form a topping phase but it is at best 6-12 months away from being a confirmed bear market.

Until then, I feel the US stock market will struggle and the focus should be put on investments that come to life during this stage of the stock market and economic life cycle.

The Dead Always Come Back To Life for One More Rally

In short, I feel resources and the Canadian stock market will become strong areas of the market going forward several months. There are a few ways to play this, and timing will be crucial.
