Barrick Gold, Tocvan Ventures, Newmont, Glencore - Long-term positioning in gold makes sense

  • Mining
  • Gold
  • Commodities
  • Investments

The FED's recent interest rate hikes and Chairman Jerome Powell's statement sent both equity and precious metals markets into the valley of tears. By all means, the monetary guardians want to curb rampant inflation. Whether this will succeed seems at least questionable. After all, it should not be forgotten that this would put an end to the already sputtering engine of the global economy. In addition, many already highly indebted countries are falling into ever greater problems due to higher interest payments. Thus, it is time to take a long-term, anticyclical position in the precious metals sector.

Next oil crisis? Shell, Globex Mining, Glencore, Gazprom - Which stocks can deliver?

  • Oil
  • Commodities

Ongoing armed conflicts in Ukraine may escalate into a global commodity and economic crisis. After all, supply chains have already been severely impacted by the global COVID pandemic. Believing that these irrationalities will eventually be put behind us, Central Europe, in particular, is now threatened with an energy shortage not seen for 50 years. The last oil crisis dates back to 1972/73 when on November 25, 1973, car traffic came to a standstill throughout Germany for the first time. In response to the rising fuel and heating oil prices, the German government had imposed a driving ban on four Sundays under the Energy Conservation Act. Will it come to that again - almost unthinkable today? We take a look at crucial raw material suppliers.

Glencore, Nevada Copper, Newmont - Commodities as an investment

  • Copper

An escalation of the situation in Ukraine and a possible war directly in Europe is keeping the stock markets in turmoil. In addition, a faster than expected rise in interest rates in the US is causing uncertainty among investors. As a result, the precious metal gold has risen to its highest level since mid-2021 and, at least in the short term, will live up to its status as a crisis currency. Companies from the commodities sector are also performing strongly. The price of a ton of copper, for example, once again exceeded the psychologically important USD 10,000 mark. Due to the strong demand resulting from the energy transition, this trend is also likely to prevail in the longer term.
