)-- “Other commodity products such as softs have also hit multi-year highs due to unfavorable weather in the primary growing regions, which vastly affected the world supply and cocoa prices hit a 25 year high.
“The corn and wheat futures prices are still on the up. The wheat futures price hit another three-year high as the drought in Russia and the excessive moisture in North America have weakened their harvests. As a result the corn futures price has also followed the increased prices of wheat as it became the obvious and immediate substitute in feeding livestock,” Haye added.
“However, it’s the precious metal sector; in particular gold, which is now setting the pace. Already most market pundits have forecast it to hit all time highs at $2,000 an ounce. The reason being, most traders and investors trust the yellow metal as the only safe place to be to protect against economic instability and inflation. Remember, gold is also a wonderful hedge against currency risk as the Euro and U.S Dollar have been undervalued in recent months.
“In addition to the above, we see 2013 being a particularly lively year for the energy sector. We foresee increasing of sanctions against Iran by the USA and the European Union which will impinge their export of Crude Oil further. We also predict a huge upturn in the Chinese economy once their recently implemented banking reforms take effect and don’t be surprised to see 4 year highs for Crude Oil, Heating Oil and Unleaded Gasoline alike. But for the immediate and short-term it is gold where the astute investor needs to be,” Haye concluded.
The FCF Group affirmatively believes that now the soon-to-be newly printed currencies are out to consumers and businesses worldwide, an impending huge spike of inflation is due. The inflation rate will be a hard target for central banks to fight since some of these governments acquired unhelpful assets to save their respective banking systems and need to maintain interest rates low if they are going to profit on these investments. Therefore, the only safe and available option currently is to invest in the commodity markets.
