Coal is the dirty stepchild in the mining sector. And boy is it unpopular at the moment.
Coal miners report that it's getting more and more difficult to get finance for new projects.
After hitting a low of $56 a tonne in April 2020, the coal price has soared. Coal now sells for double what it did in 2020 - with the latest Richards Bay Coal Terminal pricing coming in around $112.92 a ton wi... ››› more
I believe there is one commodity that can be seen as an indicator for a recovering world economy.
Think about it…
We need oil to run just about anything nowadays.

It's been a while since my last Platinum prediction article. In fact, it took almost 2 years to run up 31% to finally reach my price target.
At the time it was trading at $780… And from there I expected a 31% rally all the way to $1,193…
And it hit that price target 2 weeks ago!

Last week, I predicted Silver will rally 24% this quarter.

Gold has had a fantastic run up this year.
In fact, over the past year we saw gold prices surge over 39% taking it to all-time highs at over $2,060 an ounce.
Best yet, we called it!
However, since the gold price hit my first price target at $1,960, in August, things turned very sour very quickly.
Just in the last week alone, we saw gold's worst weekly loss since November 2016.

If you look closely at any US Dollar note, you'll see In God We Trust, this has been America's motto since 1956. It replaced its unification slogan of E Pluribus, Unum from 1776.
But in America, there's a second motto and that's In Gold We Trust. Gold (and precious metal) coins have been selling at a significant premium since the March lows.
Gold has been on a tear since the coronavirus low ... ››› more

On Monday, while I was doing my weekly market analysis, I saw something I've never seen before.
For the first time in history, the US WTI (West Texas Intermediate) oil prices crashed below zero.
At first, I thought this was just a glitch on my trading platform. But then, just minutes later, it was the breaking news event of the day.
When I did the research, I realised that the demand f... ››› more
Headlines this morning will be dominated by the fact that WTI traded at -$40.32 a barrel before settling at just over $1.
