STORM WARNINGS or PROFIT WARNINGS ? A storm surrounding Food ! ! !

WARNINGS ! ! ! - Seems like warnings surround us at every turn. Warning labels. Stock market warnings, financial warnings. Inflation warnings, deflation warnings. WELL you get the idea.

Constantly bombarded by guru's warning of the immient demise, paralyzes most investors.
Inflation in what you buy, deflation in what you sell, and uncertainty in investing.
Certainty is knowing people are going to EAT every DAY.

Whether its cyclical crop failures, , bio-fuel consumption of grains, falling grain stocks, all factors contributing to both the cost post and demand pull pricing pressure on food, gives pricing power to companies involved in secondary and tertiary roles in food production .
There ARE ways to invest in Food from Potash, to Phosphates, to Tractors, to GPS's, to Natural Gas. Some substances become scarcer, or simply cost more to bring to market. Part of the power under that FOOD Boom is PEOPLE as Infrastructure. They are working harder, longer and want better food in emerging economies. Possibilities of conversion of time honored methods to “modern” agriculture maybe be good or bad, but there are the reality. Should we have been in on Agrium, or Mosic, or Terra Industries? SandRidge, El Paso, Potash Corp and others? Non-metallic mining will continue to show strength as their products are used to enhance food growing, as will Nat Gas, to be converted into fertilizer. My no-brainer here is two fold: Natural Gas and fertilizers. One third of the planet's newly enfranchised  consumers WANT PROTEIN NOW ! ! !, and can afford it !!!!
Despite constant warnings Natural Gas could not advance in price, it has done so steadily and held its gains. ' Fracing ' will face more difficulties on the supply side, and on the demand side, further designation and use of Natural Gas as an acceptable non-polluting fuel
Energy to drive all this is needed to dry crops, power tractors, and transport, refrigerate it, distribute this food.. Be warned. Warnings surround us. This is a warning, not to be overwhelmed but rather to use these warnings are your beacons to find vehicles to help you profit.
Boring applications like sugar, and flour produced by companies who actually “Take Care of Business” have stocks out there for you to profit from, stocks that continually are yelling for us to look them over. Digital elbow grease will take you where you want to go, hunting for them, so you can bring home the digital bacon.
Intrepid Potash, Garmin Industries, John Deere, all have a stake in agriculture going forward and have their own niche. Intrepid produces potash through a brine process rather than pick and shovel mining.
Garmin produces the GPS's that John Deere uses to control its tractors in plowing, and spreading fertilizer and processing crops in the field. To say the field is limitless is a bad pun and a cliché, but that FOOD has a future where you can invest, and thats a FACT !

Pivot Day, the tide ebbs before the Tsunami returns "ROLLVER" not the movie

By any measure, today was a real downer across the board.  By every measure, the market rolled over today especially if you follow the GOLD LINE.  How far it will go, is anyone's guess.  If you combine Dire Straits "INDUSTRIAL DISEASE" with the 1980's Finacial Disaster Meltdown Movie "ROLLOVER" and you'd have something like exists today, sans the complacency we see all around us today.  I mean life is better, is it not, since  you have or can get a Bluetooth, is it not.  Actually you dont know if  your food is cleaner, as after I found out how they process beef that  is used in fast food resturants, I KNOW that the subscription to PEAK PERFORMANCE PICKS is far better for your health than the fast food meal you can skip for the price of the monthly subscription.  Protect yourself, and your stash of capital.  If you increase it, you have a good shot, if it sits, it will diminish as the price of a loaf of bread creeps up, step by step.
     Gold, silver, copper, coal, oil, natural gas,all are forms of currency insurance.  Some you can own in small amounts without margin or borrowing.  These will serve you well.

Visit the CANADIAN SURVIVOR Blog, and see what is shaking there.  Maybe some volcanic action, some seismic movements or fossils.
Chrome,Coal, Oil, Gas, Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium, Diamonds, whether mined in Ontario or Manitoba, are heating up as are phosphates and potash fertilizers, let along agricultural plays.

A happy and prosperous 2010 to you all

Of course we will start out with massive doses of fear and loathing. The bottom chart above shows the WEEKLY progress over 30 months. The top chart shows the current position of the same average over the a DAILY period take a YEAR AGO.

         So basically the LONG TERM picture now looks like the SHORT TERM picture did a year ago.
 What that implies to me is that the market, to make a verb from a noun, is FRACTALLING long term what the short term showed us a year ago, repeating a pattern.

         FEAR & LOATHING comes in to play here because some hate the thought of the stock market going up without punishing the "Evil-Doers"[ a term used when no other prejudice can be found ] who brought us inflation, fiat money, modernity, and yes, Lady GaGa [sic].  No I dont follow the chick, but I am stuck with modernity, fiat money and inflation.  I bet you are too ! ! !   So we all have something to be mad at.

  Now that we have thrown our  hissey-fit, lets get down to making money.   Buy Low, Sell HIGH, is what we do at PEAK PERFORMANCE PICKS.  Please stop over on the side-bar and get a HALF-PRICE
trial subscription for 5 bux -> see how you could benefit from one of the three basis approaches in it.
   Deprive yourself of a Big Mac Meal and thank me for improving  your health and investment return,

      SIGN UP FOR PEAK PICKS, and see what I mean.

Now back from the "shameless self promotion" and onto more common - sense approach.

  Ever been where it "COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER" ?  Invariably even if it took awhile, the crazy good times went away and it indeed, only got worse.  You dont have to think too far, do you?  I didnt.

 Again, , remember  how discouraging it felt when "THINGS COULD NOT BE WORSE"?    
     Now again, after a time, maybe things got a little worse, but usually they got better, because THINGS COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WORSE, at that point.

   Now twirl that around in your mind and ask  yourself how that fits with BUY LOW, SELL HIGH..
Generally speaking, you have to buy when things look bad and sell when they look good.
    Its called TIMING or SAVVY, or whatever term you like.  No it is not BUY  & HOLD, the favored strategy of those who always get neutered by market moves.  It is BE SMART !
    Yes all those evil-doers are going to get punished, at least we hope they will.  But what I plan for more, since hope is neither a tactic or a strategy, is that we clip profits buying low, selling high, buying some currency insurance in the form of monetary metals and create a nice investment income for ourselves.

   Educate yourself.  Go to, read and BUY LOW SELL HIGH, take the fiat money and take care with it.

   You also don't have to do this alone.  Try a subscription today on a Half Price Trial and see if it is worth
a "doughnut a day" [ what else can you get for less than 70 cents?][ I wracked my brain, but thats what I came up with, a doughnut! ].  Its your money, take care of it and it will take care of you.

Meanwhile, things will get better,  hope you are there to reap the profits.   Better to be at the pier when your ship comes in, than hiding under the bedcovers awaiting destruction.
