Prediction 5: Oil, Copper, and Gold Will Soar in 2020

With global growth returning, the U.S. economy surging to a 3% growth rateU.S. rates on the rise, the U.S. dollar sinking, and the return of inflation, commodities, and materials will soar. 

There is no doubting that a weak dollar and global growth can help to push commodities higher. Three commodities that may benefit are Oil, Copper, and Gold.

Oil

The chart below shows the relationship between the trade-weighted US dollar index and the price of WTI Crude oil. During the periods of dollar strength, oil prices were depressed, while during periods of weakness, oil prices soared.

The technical chart shows that the price of oil is very close to breaking out should it rise above resistance at $61.70. It could lead to the price increasing to around $67. That is where oil will meet a long-term downtrend that started in 2014. That will be the moment of truth, break above that downtrend, and oil has much further to rise, perhaps back to price not seen since 2014. If not, then oil will continue its secular decline.

Copper

Copper prices are also very close to breaking out and should the price rise above $2.81; it could move higher towards $3.00

Gold

Meanwhile, gold prices are breaking out of a pennant pattern, and it suggests that the metal takes on a resistance level at $1,556. However, it could be a more significant year for gold than that. Should gold rise above resistance, it could go on to soar to $1,700.
