In Times of Rate Hikes, Industrial Metals Rise Fastest
Contributed Opinion

Tom Beck, senior editor of Portfolio Wealth Global, says in times of rate hikes, industrial metals rise fastest, and in today's world, the type of metals in highest demand by China are going to rise the most.

For close to 35 years, we've seen a tremendous amount of changes in our world: mobile phones, now turning into smartphones, the Internet, which brought entire industries down and birthed new ones, a tech bubble, a real estate crash, QEs, wars, pandemics, regime changes and a million other variables.

There aren't many constants in the world of investing, and certainly not many things that rise in value like clockwork. One thing has held true since 1984, and I'm betting it will continue creating millionaires and funding college tuitions for many students whose parents wisely went LONG this trade and never doubted themselves.


I'd like to make sure you know where Portfolio Wealth Global sees the most upside in this commodities cycle.

The Fed is in a tightening period. The reason is they are targeting 2% inflation—historically, low to moderate levels have resulted in the highest equity returns.

High inflation rates distort confidence, slow commerce, and shrink consumer spending. No one wants that.

In times of rate hikes, industrial metals rise fastest, and in today's world, the type of metals in highest demand by China are going to rise the most.

Major Commodity Futures

Silver is one metal that's poised to move up—and potentially even double.

Zinc is the only commodity in the world that is trading for less than half of what it did in 1980, and it always outperforms all others, especially when it's experiencing supply shortages.

Zinc Balance

One mining mogul, Keith Neumeyer, has positioned his personal holdings and the companies he operates right at the center of these two minerals, and in 30 years of resource entrepreneurship, he has never failed.

He is a close contact of Portfolio Wealth Global, and beginning in 1984, he has been in a personal bull market—his net worth and the companies he has built and backed have been absolute market winners.
