People who are investing in metal commodities are usually focused on gold, silver, or platinum. When it comes to trading natural commodities, forecasts uses assumptions because no one can really tell what would happen in nature. That’s the reason why proven commodities like gold and silver are getting a lot of attraction. However, this is going to change, according to Matt Badiali, because Zinc will underperform the other metals. Matt Badiali, the founder of “Real Wealth Strategist”, his investment newsletter in Banyan Hill stated that natural resources cycles usually last a few years. Zic has been in its bearish trend since 2011 and investors who don’t see gains, in the long run, tend to sell and move on another sector.
But as Matt Badiali says, no bull market goes straight up, and it is true with the Zinc market. The Zinc price trend from 2016 to 2017 dips every once in a while, but it will usually rise again. In just two years, the price went from $0.70 to more than $1.40. In addition, expert Matt Badiali stated that there are times earlier in the decade when Zinc has gained a lot, even outperforming other commodities. An example of this time is from December 2008 to January 2010. Zinc price increased from $0.48 to $1.22, a 154% gain in 25 months. A similar thing happened from July 5 to December 2006, when the price of zinc increased from $0.53 to $2.09 per pound. That’s 294% gain, and even in a shorter time span.
According to data of Zinc Price from InvestmentMine, Zinc Price per pound is currently on its bullish trend, and it is expected to continue in the following years. Matt Badiali stated that the last bullish Zinc market lasted for four years. Early investors will probably reap bigger gains when the bullish market finally takes off.
