2012 Trends

1. Continuing worldwide recession, with fireworks in Europe and the US and – this time – Australia, with the $A finally taking a beating.  Stocks down again.

2. Gold slightly up – or slightly lower.  Silver the same.

3. Bonds – very risky.  Great returns in some pockets (US short term).  Some other pockets will blow your trousers off, especially in Europe.

4. Credit crunch in first half of 2012.

5. At least one major environmental catastrophe.  Possibly two or three.  All man made, and all potentially avoidable.

Sweet dreams.  And to understand the dynamics for the next 10 years, see this suckling video from Max Keiser:
