Waiting For The Next Profitable Trend In Markets In 2017

It is getting boring in markets. That is mostly very challenging for the vast majority of investors because most of us suffer from ‘action addiction’. With that, we mean that there is a strong seduction to get into a trade, even if there are no strong reasons to do so.

That is how markets work: they seduce you to do the wrong thing as opposed to stick to your own methodology. Patience can be the most profitable action sometimes, though that is very hard to accomplish.

Generally speaking, there are 5 moments in the year when investors in global markets can get * really * excited. That is an average, not a hard number. It is an insight based on empirical evidence.

In 2017 we have seen 3 exciting trends so far:

  1. U.S. and European stocks in the first months of the year. This is what we forecasted last year: Market Outlook 2017 According To Our Proprietary Indicators (November 2016)
  2. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain since April of this year. This is what we forecasted last year: Bitcoin Stocks Go Ballistic As Bitcoin Price At All-Time Highs (February 2017)
  3. Emerging markets, with a focus on the Indian stock market, Chinese internet stocks, the Taiwan and South Korean stock markets. This is what we forecasted last year: India Stock Market Outlook For 2017 (November 2016)

So that is already quite some profitable trends this year. Investors following InvestingHaven should be very happy as we have forecasted all this in time. We have given free advice, with much better than 90% of paid subscriptions on other financial sites.

But what is next? Stated differently, which will be the 2 most profitable trends of the second half of 2017?

We will provide an overview of potential bull market trends in the second half of 2017:

  • We believe gold and silver will correct in months. If that will take place, we see a very profitable entry point arising especially in silver, late this year. The condition: silver should break down in the coming weeks.
  • Emerging markets will outperform the rest of the world, especially Indian stocks.
  • Commodities will be neutral at best, some commodities can be shorted, though this is risky business.
  • In currency land, there is a fair chance that the Japanese Yen could do very well the coming months. Watch what happens around 90 points.
  • Blockchain stocks are a buy on any dip.
  • Avoid base metals as we hold a Bearish Base Metals Forecast For 2017.
  • Uranium can go both directions. It bears watching. Hard to make a forecast at this point, but it becomes bullish once Uranium Stocks (URA) crosses $15.
  • Greece is likely to continue its recently started (tactical) bull market, with the National Bank Of Greece a potential outperformer.

With that, readers know what we are watching. There is fair chance that the 2 hottest trends of the coming 6 months are among the ones listed above.

  • Taki, you forgot to mention Tesla which you predict last December. In 6 months the stock is up 60%.

    Thanks for the call, very profitable indeed.

    For all ethereum investors share this as much as possible on twitter Facebook and other social medias
    This is the reason why ethereum lost his value since several weeks
    I’m done speaking on the subject. To all the people who took my advice (to simply watch your Litecoin/ The Lee brothers closely), my point is made. To all the people who chose not to see that I’m just trying to show you where these brothers have their hands in the market, I guess I can’t help that. I’m not saying Litecoin is going to fail, but I’m saying the Lee brothers may have a bigger hand in crypto than realized and we could be playing right into their game.

    I know this is speculation, but with how much trading I do I can usually spot a pattern. Has anyone else noticed that somehow with the market “taking a turn”, and all cryptos underperforming (including Bitcoin & Ethereum), how is it that Litecoin (which happens to be directly tied to Coinbase through Charlie Lee , who has (Edit: Had) a VERY high position, is somehow jumping up in the market with 1B in daily volume in transactions, and yet no one is noticing its direct tie to a company that is single handedly ruining two major cryptos. I’m not saying what they are doing is illegal, but isn’t it highly unethical to run this sort of business model? Especially one that you directly have a hand in? This almost feels like how Bobby Lee ran a “vote” on twitter to list ETC on BTCC knowing well that it wasn’t worth that listing, and he had a personal interest and would directly benefit from it being listed. This is getting ridiculous with how these companies aren’t thinking of the customer and a huge conflict of interest is going on inside these companies day in day out.

    Edit2: I’m not saying you guys can’t believe what you want. But it’s a little ridiculous that Litecoin have 1 BILLION dollars in daily volume (this is the same volume Ethereum & Bitcoin are trading), and it only HAS 2.4B total volume, conveniently with Charlie denouncing his role in Coinbase. Ethereum shot up from ~1B to 20B and still never had over 1 billion in daily volume until recently.

    Edit3: Ripple went from ~1B to almost 11B and STILL doesn’t have a daily volume NEAR 1 Billion.

    Edit4: Actually I underestimated. Litecoin traded at nearly 2 Billion (~1.75B) volume in ONE DAY. Nearly double its actual market cap, and yet people think it’s totally normal. I get this is an Ethereum sub, but Litecoin dealt with Coinbase, and no one here thought, hmm something is odd.

    Edit5: WHOA WHOA WHOA. I know I usually miss a couple of things because I scan through text so fast, but Charlie and Bobby ARE BROTHERS? WTF.. That’s a huge conflict of interest…. both happen to work with MAJOR exchanges and both happen to have their hands in direct say of competing cryptos? I wouldn’t touch anything they directly approve of with a 10 foot poll. If we know for sure that Bobby totally despises the idea of ETH, how is it any different that his BROTHER have the same outlook? Why wouldn’t Charlie work directly with his brother if they had the same goal?

    Edit6: Maybe last edit because this is turning my stomach. Why is it that Charlie added segwit to Litecoin code in the same timeframe that Bobby was pushing so hard for it in his twitter polls “revealing” that people would stay on the bitcoin chain and wait it out for segwit because it was such a great idea? It is ridiculous how much these two brothers have swayed a DECENTRALIZED technology.

    Edit7: I can’t even be repulsed enough to not look. He couldn’t even wait more than a couple of months to leave coinbase? I mean litecoin was on Coinbase for less than TWO MONTHS. It’s nonchalantly added through a conversation between Charlie & Brian? Then Charlie leaves within months of it happening? People, if I’ve ever cared about the public, now is the time. Evidence obviously points to Charlie having ulterior motives, and I’m not going to say Brian was 100% in on it, but these are way too many coincidences.

    If August 1 comes, Bitcoin has problems and people just mysteriously flood to Litecoin, which has been stagnant for years, I cannot continue to call this coincidence. I’m not telling everyone to flee the market, but the things that I’ve stated can be verified in less than a minute and I am only here to increase exposure for anyone thinking of making the jump without connecting the dots. Maybe this is why Coinbase fees are significantly higher yet their infrastructure hasn’t seen a change in years.

    Last and Final Edit: Please just take the time to think about how quickly ETC was added to BTCC and yet with the massive volume that ETH is trading it still hasn’t peaked interest in Bobby possibly looking into adding it to the exchange?

    I know I said last and final edit, but sometimes we have to lie in order for people to see what’s going on. I wrote this in comments, but someone tell me this doesn’t make sense and I’m just seeing things.

    I didn’t want to go on with edits because I said last and final lol. But what if this explains why there is always a huge difference in EU/US and Asian markets for ETH, but somehow Bitcoin, Litecoin, and ETC look the same across the board. Someone is obviously pushing the ETH market down. That is a near a $4 billion difference in market cap, and now it finally starts to look somewhat understandable as to why Asia is selling higher only for ETH and no other crypto.
