Many of you know me as a currency trader and currency investor and that is true. But I also look for value and new trends across all asset classes too. There are huge periods of time when I’m also riding other new trends out there.
So as I search the globe for value and the “next bull market,” I found it in the most unlikely place.
It’s not in tech or internet stocks. In fact, it’s not in stocks in general. It’s found in the commodities market. It’s food (aka agriculture)!
You see, for many, many years….food costs went down, down, down.

Why? We found better technologies. We went from plowing with mules and horses to sophisticated tractors and fertilizers.
This made it to where a much larger harvest was able to be obtained for more people with even fewer workers. As that happened, food costs were kept very low. Most inflationary costs weren’t as great in the food category as they’ve been in things like oil for instance.
In fact, in the latest commodity boom, only recently have food prices “woken up” and joined in on the rally. They’ve been the laggard the whole time before that.
But from mid-2010 through March of 2011 we finally saw the first real leg up of the agricultural boom. You’ve probably seen it mentioned on the nightly news as they talked about global food prices hitting an all-time high.
However, since then, food prices have corrected from their lofty levels. This trend isn’t over … only the first wave has come and gone and the next big “boom” in this new “food trend” is about to head higher once again.
In fact, I believe corn will be one of the leaders in 2012 as this next wave of food price inflation heads higher. This is something that I’m going to be tracking much more over the coming year.

So in 2012, look for more blogs from me on both commodities and currencies…after all, there’s always some currency in a bull market out there.
I wish you a blessed and prosperous 2012. I believe your best days are ahead of you.
I’m looking forward to winning the fight against inflation through investing in currencies and commodities all throughout 2012 and beyond. I believe as you put these blogs to use too…you too will do so much better than the masses that don’t have a clue as to how to really fend off inflation from their pocketbooks.
