Traders Resolve Tested

From the HRA Journal Issue 212,
April 7th, 2014

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the market the gold price and junior resource stocks drop and nervous traders declare the sky is falling yet again.

I’m not thrilled by the market action of the past two or three weeks but I also don’t think the basic narrative has changed. The gold price has corrected but I don’t think its rolled over unless it gets quite a bit lower.

A New Resource Bull

From the HRA Journal Issue 211,
March 16, 2014

Its game on in the resource space at long last.  There are plenty of market players that are still cautious but that is how it should be early in a bull market.  Technically, we need to be 20% off the bottom for a Bull to be official but it seems very unlikely we won’t get there now.

So Far, So Good

From the HRA Journal Issue 210,
February 25th, 2014

We’re one issue into the cycle since I made the start of year predictions.  I don’t look stupid yet which might be some sort of record.   So far, so good.

If the trend of the past two weeks holds up the correction that started 2014 is already over.   If you use the Dow as the benchmark the dip was eight percent. 

HRA is your key to uncovering and profiting from extraordinary resource shares by getting ahead of the crowd.

HRA looks for resource companies with the potential to at least double over one year based on asset or reserve growth through development of metals deposits for production or take over by larger companies. HRA also uncovers high risk/high potential exploration plays, the kind of "swing for the fences" trade that can yield returns of hundreds or even thousands of percent. You choose your comfort zone and which type of company you want to follow.

But Aren't Commodities Dead?

No. Metals are basic necessities of modern life and the per capita use of metals rises with income levels. In the past decade several of the world's most populous countries underwent accelerated growth. While countries like China, India and Brazil are currently being impacted by recessionary forces, the changes that spurred their stronger growth are not cyclical. These secular changes occur as per capita income reaches levels that require increased infrastructure spending by government and allow for discretionary spending on things like housing. All advanced economies have gone through these high growth secular periods in the past. The difference is that never in history have so many people in the world been entering the "lower middle class" at the same time. The impact on resource use from this massive change is just beginning to be felt. Remember too that there are several other high population countries like Malaysia, Turkey, Indonesia and Pakistan that are just entering this growth phase now. Collectively, these countries have a population roughly equal to China.

Historically, these sorts of Quality of Life cycles last a full generation or more. We are a bit over 10 years into this one. There will be cyclical slowdowns within the secular trend and individual metals will underperform or outperform depending on their particular supply/demand balance. The mining sector, which we have decades of experience in, will have to struggle just to keep up many times during this trend. Economies turn much faster than metals production. In short, there are more bull runs ahead for various metals and they will start much sooner than most people think. Metals producers and explorers will go from pariahs to market darlings and the change will happen fast when it comes. It has many times before. Buying low and selling high means seeking out the right companies before the market does. HRA can help you do just that.
