Seven Up – ETFs Of Interest

Here are seven ETFs of interest and a few thoughts on each.

First up is the agricultural commodity ETF, which has a decent basing pattern. This isn’t very heavily traded, and it isn’t a big percentage mover, but it also isn’t prone to shocking moves, either.

The triple-bearish energy instrument, shown below, looks like it’s starting to gain a bit of strength after having withered away most of the year.

The Euro is following its channels quite nicely, and it seems more prone to weakness than strength at present levels.

The standout for 2016 ,of course, is precious metals miners. I’ve drawn a channel with a midline for the junior miners, and although it’s rather lofty right now, it seems to me a trip into the mid-50s seems totally plausible before it backs off.

Lastly, there’s silver, which has been pretty much dynamite all year long, with a couple of bouts of weakness to shake out the fearful. It’s actually completed its measured move already, calculated on the basing pattern, but at this stage I’m not going to sell precious metals short (either literally or figuratively).

2016 couldn't be any more crazier than it is right now and you are probably searching for a way to conquer these senseless markets. So do yourself a favor, stay in the game and sign up to ...

Sadly the only ones who make money in the long term on these are those running them which often happens to be the same people shorting the commodity. Paper commodities seem to be created to take away demand for the real thing and that hasn't been lost on the issuers.
