May 3, 2016
It was a great month for Gold, Silver, Oil, Natgas, the TSX.V, Bitcoin, Platinum and Palladium. They were all up by double digits. Of course some markets like the Toronto Venture Exchange were at or near all time lows. Gold and Silver showed true strength and the Silver to Gold ratio looks like it's starting to come back down to earth. Oil and perhaps Natgas appear to have put in their cycle lows. How high will they go from here? Nat's hit a low of 1.66 in February and is now at 2.18. This in spite of the lack of demand for heating or AC around the country. Bitcoin is continuing its pattern of volatility but was still up nearly 10 percent for the month.
Check out our previous monthly reviews. There's virtually no one else out there looking back at prior performance. The Wizards of Wall Street only look ahead. But those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat their market losses.
