Price Changes of Key Commodities for 2013.

July 31, 2013 Price Changes of Key Commodities for 2013: The price changes for the first six months of 2013 are shown above.

The big winner is Natural Gas – up +6.5%. The big loser is Silver at -35.3%, followed by gold at -26.3%.

Typically, the last six months will see the big losers and winners reverse. In others words, sell Natural Gas and Crude Oil and buy Gold and Silver.

Several vehicles for price appreciation are available for Gold and Silver:

‘1. The U.S. Mint has several coins available for private investors

‘2. Commodity Brokers Websites

‘3. Coin Dealers

The safest way to play this in commodities (futures contracts) is with options on futures. In other words, buy out-of-the-money call options on gold and silver. Options on futures are explained here.

The profit potential is huge if gold and silver rise during the next six months. For example, if gold rises from its current price of $1,327 an ounce to say $1,427:

The 1400 Dec-2013 Gold Option, now priced at 30.40 ($3,040) would rise to about 130.50 ($13,050). That is an ROI (Return on Investment) of 429.3% in six months. At that rate $1,000 invested in Gold Options becomes $4,293; $10,000 become $42,930 and $100,000 becomes $429,300.

Of course, you could lose all you have invested if the prices fall instead of rise. However, the maximum risk is limited to the premium paid for the options contracts, using options on futures.
