The Energy Strategist is now Real World Investing

By Jim Pearce on October 26, 2017

As Investing Daily’s Director of Research, I am constantly thinking about the global financial markets and what we can do to help you profit from them.  That’s why we expanded our offerings this year by adding five publications managed by Dr. Stephen Leeb, including his renowned commodity tracking service Real World Investing.

I am excited to announce that we are merging The Energy Strategist with Real World Investing so we can provide our readers with comprehensive coverage of the global commodity markets. As a long time stock market analyst and portfolio manager, I have developed a sixth sense for when a major change is underway and I believe one of them is happening right now.  

Until recently, central bankers pushed commodity prices lower so the global economy could recover from The Great Recession that caused the stock market to crash nine years ago. But now that the economy is growing again the Fed is more worried about containing future inflation than avoiding a recession.

That’s why it ended its lengthy QE (quantitative easing) program three years ago and stopped its ZIRP (zero interest rate policy) two years ago. And just last month the Fed confirmed what many of us suspected. It will begin liquidating its massive bond portfolio, adding more than $4 trillion to the global bond inventory.

That means bond issuers will need to offer higher interest rates to compete with each other for investor capital. And when bonds start declining in value, a lot of that money will go somewhere else. We believe much of it will end up in the type of hard assets that Dr. Leeb covers extensively in Real World Investing since historically they tend to benefit from rising inflation.

Of course, oil and other petroleum products will continue to be a critical piece of the global commodity market. For that reason, the Real World Investing portfolio will be roughly evenly spread across energy, precious metals, and other real assets. Robert Rapier will remain on staff as our in-house energy expert and continue to write regular updates on how to profit from current trends.

Despite advancements in renewable energy technology, the fact of the matter is demand for oil is rising and shows no signs of abating anytime soon. Dr. Leeb and I agree that ten years from now we will look back on this time as a critical turning point in the global economy. The middle-class populations of India and China are projected to grow tenfold by the year 2030. Gold is worth less now than it was nearly forty years ago, while oil prices are bouncing off of a fifteen-year low.

All of that is about to change and we want you to have the tools you need to profit from this unprecedented confluence of economic megatrends. The combined expertise of Robert Rapier and Dr. Leeb will give you a huge advantage over investors trying to go it alone.

Think of them as your personal “dream team” of commodity experts, guiding you through what promises to be a new era in real asset wealth.
