What is the next wave? No one can forecast the future exactly. Everyone has a different opinion. That is what makes a market. But by researching trends and investing at the right times, one can beat the market time and time again whether it is up/down or sideways. Adding tools like position sizing, using options, trailing stops according to volatility quotient for a given position, will enhance portfolio performance overtime. Ride the waves as an investor or swing trader.

What has made 16.3% per year in real terms, for the last 10 years?
1. Consider exiting all US Treasuries into strength. The US dollar is fundamentally weak but periodically will surprise the bears. Listen to what the trend is telling you. Asset prices movements and commodity swings are good gauges.
2. Consider small amounts of physical metal and selected mining equities but only those of producers or companies that have large proven resources and have zero or very low debt, and do not have the need to raise capital. Demand delivery of stock certificates in your name. This will prevent your broker from possibly plundering your stock at a later date. In the cutthroat environment that we are moving into it can be assumed that anyone who has the power to rob you will do so. For this reason gold and silver ETF's are no longer trusted - rotate out of these into "gold you can hold". Stocks can be very volatile so learn how to evaluate these properly. We have been in a bull market since March 2009 for the general markets but new investments should be geared to areas overlooked or hated and in an uptrend.
3. Buying out of favor investments in an uptrend always makes life easier because fighting the trend can be a painful way to learn some hard lessons. Always use good information sources and understand value in the marketplace.None of the information and links to other websites should be considered as advice. Please see disclaimer below.
