Matt Badiali recaps the rise and fall of metals in recent history, giving foresight into the future prospect of metals.
The mining industry survived a brutal 6 years of metal prices plummeting, with the exception of some metals whose prices rebounded in 2017. In order for the prices of any commodity to rise it needs to apply the formula in which the demand exceeds supply.
In certain instances, such as the case of zinc, a lack of investment caused the supply range to fall below demand. Copper, is another example, whose price went up 27% since early 2016. Logically, this will be another metal whose supply will struggle to meet demand.
Deducing from his astute observation, Matt relays that 2018 will see the rise of another metal’s price. This metal happens to be platinum. The price chart of platinum features data compiled over the period 6 years, from 2011 to 2017.
In 2018, it wouldn’t surprise me to see platinum prices rise 25%. Here’s why…#Platinum #copper #Zinc #miningindustry #PreciousMetals #investing #commodities #markets #banyanhill $PLAThttps://t.co/ExzrvFilKF pic.twitter.com/2DzfDzmXuR

The chart demonstrates a steady decline from 2011 to 2016. The price dropped by more than 50% in 2016. This was followed by a brief rebound in 2017. Then the price fell to its lowest of 2017.
So, why, according to Matt Badiali, would this trend for platinum change in 2018? He cites a simple answer to this question: supply cannot keep up with demand. The World Platinum Investment Council reports that the year 2017 will end leaving a deficit of around 15,000 ounces. The council also expects the supply and demand gap to widen. The demand for platinum in 2018 will rise by 2%, while the supply will fall by 1% amounting to a deficit of 250,000 ounces.
This kind of a deficit was enough to put off platinum sellers in the past. A lack of significant increase in price left no incentive for sellers. This ultimately brought down supply. This is one reason why Badiali expects platinum price to rise in 2018. The other reason is sentiment. As aforementioned, the reason why copper prices shot up in 2017 was because electrical vehicles were perceived to raise copper demand. Essentially, the price of copper rose because of perceived demand.
While platinum’s demand fell because of the Volkswagen scandal. Since platinum’s main commercial use is in diesel catalytic converters, its value went down when the company admitted to false diesel efficiency. The fall of Volkswagen’s perception directly affected the price of platinum. Investors withdrew from investing in it because of perceived decline in platinum in the coming days.
However, platinum is still rare compared to other metals and since, most of the existing mines are running out — this will spur demand. In addition, Europeans prefer diesel cars, which will further raise demand, altogether changing platinum’s fortune in 2018. Based off this analysis, we can expect the price to rise up to 25%.

Ted has talked about mistakes that one should avoid while planning on their retirements. In his article, he distinguishes the difference between price and value. He insists that one should consider value when planning on their retirement rather than price. This is because the value of an asset cannot be compromised as price can.
Ted also advises on giving priorities to one’s life. He says that these priorities should be paid more attention than other aspects of life. They should act as the strategies that give life a direction and a purpose. In his opinion, one of these priorities should be the retirement plan since at some point, everyone is going to retire.
In his argument, Ted Bauman points out that the valuable assets one has adds up to their net worth. It is this value that helps a person to have a comfortable retirement. Upon retirement, one can then convert his valuable assets to money which they can use for the rest of their lives if they had invested wisely on valuable assets. This is done by selling the assets to the younger generation who are building their lives.

He adds that basing one’s retirement on the price value can be frustrating and may lead to mystery after retirement. This is because price keeps on changing and it may drop in its value after one has retired leaving them with very little to survive on. This in return may lead to poor health due to stress on how to survive without a source of income.

According to the current inequality, Ted notes that the younger generation is no longer in a position to buy assets from the older generation and the number keeps on increasing. Thus, homes that are taken for granted should be well maintained and taken care of as their value will continue rising as years pass.

He has also been in the mortgage lending business as well as flipping homes for a profit. Additionally, he has written articles for publication about how to succeed in business and life in general.
It’s in the food industry, though, that Joel Friant has found his greatest success. In 1995 he opened the doors for a restaurant concept he had, serving Thai food as fast food. He also used his love for habanero peppers around this time to launch The Habanero Shaker. At the time he was living in Washington state and this product was successfully launched in several grocery chains there.
For several years Joel Friant had moved on to other industries and businesses but people who knew him kept asking him about his habanero product. He took a course that taught everything you need to know to successfully sell a product online. Matching his interest in online sales and his interest in habanero peppers led to him re-launching his product as The Original Habanero Shaker. It can now be found on Amazon as well as on eBay.
Joel Friant has The Original Habanero Shaker made in the United States. The container contains 100% habanero flakes with no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors added. As he points out, a habanero pepper rates at 200,000 on the Scoville heat scale which means that it’s really hot, but not so hot that it’s oppressive. They also contain capsaicin which, among other benefits, is a natural painkiller.
Habanero peppers are also very healthy to eat, as Joel Friant likes to point out to people. It can help people lose weight and it also kills unhealthy bacteria. It can help with ulcers, including preventing them, due to how it interacts with the stomach lining. Additionally, it is has a large amount of both vitamins A and C.

The Oxford Club, a community of successful investors and entrepreneurs in Baltimore, Maryland, gives members opportunities to earn good returns on many types of assets. Consisting of 80,000 members in 100 different countries, they deal with assets that include equities, bonds, real estate, collectibles, currencies, and physical property. The high profile social and business connections virtually make the club impervious to all kinds of corruption.
The Oxford Club promotes their activity by publishing monthly newsletters, offering investment research services, and trading recommendation. Overseas clients have the option to participate in investment excursions, seminars, and symposiums alongside ordinary members.
The Secret the Success
An insight on achieving good returns is stated by Karim Rahemtulla in a recent news article known as “The Ultimate Income Checklist.” The Oxford Club buys stocks at huge discounts, compared to the original price, or receives money for examining the change in prices. They’ve had success in major companies such as Wells Fargo, Southwest Airlines, Phillips 66 and U.S Steel. However, users would have to set-up a stock trading account to participate in exchanging stocks. It requires a regular stock trading account and adjusting client services through a personal broker. Aside from the standard requirements, there’s more flexibility towards choosing the level or type of trade account. Rahemtulla recommends the level 5 account, a premium that gives the clients the ability to invest a small amount of capital towards a trade and sell puts of the broker’s money.
Rahemtulla is an option strategist at the Oxford Club and recommends these strategies to avoid losing money because of greed:
