2009 a Bullish Year for Stock and Commodity markets, 2010 Debt Monster Looms

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010 Dec 30, 2009 - 11:00 AM GMT

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHappy New Year.

The year is drawing to a close. And what a year it’s been, filled with twists and turns, some surprises, thrills, excitement, history and some disappointments too, all topped off with gold skyrocketing in its biggest monthly rise in a decade.


BULLISH MARKETS

But regardless of the emotional ups and downs, this year has been much better than last year, which was one for the record books. This year has been very good for our subscribers since we’ve been invested in the metals markets and the strongest currencies throughout the year, along with energy and resource stocks. Since mid-year, we’ve also been invested in the emerging stock markets and other strong stock sectors, and all of these areas have done very well (see Chart 1).

The year ahead, however, is shaping up to be even more interesting than the year that’s now ending.

THE END OF A DECADE

In fact, it’s actually been an incredible decade. As we’ve often discussed, the year 2000 marked the beginning of a new era that does not happen often. But when it does, it warrants a total strategy shift, which is what’s been taking place over the past 10 years.

Starting in 2000, for instance, stocks fell sharply as the tech boom came to an abrupt end. Gold started to rise. This shift was most important as it marked the beginning of a lost decade for stocks. The stock market has lost 10% since then while gold has quintupled. Hands down, gold has been the far better investment.

It’s also been the decade and era of commodities as they’ve moved higher as well. At the same time, the U.S. dollar has steadily declined, and for the most part, so have interest rates.

THE WINNERS

These have been the primary mega trends this decade and as 2009 comes to an end, you can see that these trends remained in full swing this year.

As Chart 1 shows, gold, the other metals and commodities (represented by silver and oil), U.S. stocks, the global emerging stock markets and the major currencies were the outstanding winners this year. The U.S. dollar was the loser.

All of this year’s big winners were generally markets that fell last year, some more than others, as a result of the horrendous financial crisis, which hit just about everything. When the dust finally settled, most of these markets reached major or intermediate bottoms. This year they made up for lost time by rebounding strongly, with some of the markets wiping away last year’s losses.

WHAT ABOUT 2010?

Will these upmoves continue as we move into the new year?  We believe that they will. But since these markets have all had significant gains, we’ll likely see further downward corrections first before they resume their rises.  So don’t be surprised.

Remember, no market goes straight up or straight down. Corrections along the way are normal and they’re healthy.

The major trends are always the most important. That’s where your focus should be because that’s where the greatest profits are made.

If you’re in for the long haul, which is what we advise for most investors, then stay with the major trends and use corrections as an opportunity to buy more of an investment you feel you don’t have enough of, but at a better price.

All of our recommended markets on Chart 1, for example, are in major uptrends. So any upcoming weakness will provide good buying opportunities. And we don’t think that’s going to change. Why?

THE DEBT MONSTER

Very simply, the global financial system has gotten itself into a cornered situation where there’s no way out. This is not our opinion, it’s essentially the facts.

Wealth is shifting from West to East. Asia is booming, along with some of the other emerging markets, while the West is struggling and barely pulling itself out of recession. China has trillions in its reserves, the U.S. is broke and it’s borrowing like there’s no tomorrow. So what does this mean?

The bottom line is that the U.S. has few options. Its debt is soaring to levels that were unthinkable just a couple of years ago. It is truly shocking, but the U.S. keeps spending. And it’s spending money that it does not have, so it has to keep borrowing more and more, and it won’t be able to pay these massive amounts back.

HOW THE PIPER WILL BE PAID

Just the interest on the debt is going to amount to over $500 billion within the next five years. That’s more than the total deficit last year and it’ll amount to one third of all taxes collected. In other words, there won’t be much money
left for everything else, which just means even more borrowing and greater deficits for as far as the eye can see.

Since default is out of the question, the only way out of this situation will be ongoing weakness in the dollar and the inflation option, which is historically the old tried and true, least painful method of keeping it all together for as long
as possible.

So we can assume that the dollar will head lower in the years ahead. And at the same time, gold and commodities will move sharply higher.

BEYOND 2010

These are the mega trends that’ve been in force for a decade and there’s no reason to believe this is going to change. As for stocks, they’ll likely continue rising as long as interest rates remain low. But the big moves are going to be
in gold, the other precious metals, commodities and to a lesser degree, the currency markets.

For those who think gold is already too expensive consider this from our dear friend Ian McAvity and his great newsletter, Deliberations… Gold is about 52% higher than it was at its January, 1980 peak. Meanwhile, the CPI, which is the consumer measure of inflation is 177% higher, the money supply is 464% higher and the stock market
is nearly 900% higher.

He notes, “I don’t think it untoward to suggest that gold is badly lagging a number of important yardsticks and at these levels it has some catching up to do.” We couldn’t agree more and this will likely happen in the year ahead,
and beyond.
