The 18 year economic cycle, mid-cycle slowdown shown on the long-term chart below is starting to get traction. We should expect this to accelerate in 2019 and bottom out in 2020. So playing the SHORT side should be more profitable, than the LONG side, for at least the next 12 months.
After the 2020 bottom is in, the LONG side is the game, with 2024 to 2026 expected to be the final blow off in this current 18 year economic cycle and the K-wave commodity cycle.
Precious metals, and other tangible assets such as global real estate, should be trading at all time highs in 2026, at the peak of these two cycles.
Note: Its very important not to get distracted by the shorter term noise, popular narratives and memes; as these cycles play out over the next seven years. “The sky is falling” narrative is always very appealing to the herd.
