When the metals markets tumbled in mid-April, The Gold Report reached out to “the original investor bug” and author of The Dines Letter, James Dines, for perspective. He predicted a crash in commodity prices two years ago based on his analysis of a weak Chinese economy. Next, he says, will be a bond market bust once interest rates start to climb. This will lead to “a stampede to get out of bonds like a herd of elephants attempting to exit through a revolving door.” How can investors protect themselves? That is Dinesism #38.
The Gold Report: What does it mean that leading stock market averages have been in Uptrends, while commodities markets are in Downtrends?
James Dines: Our “Sell” signal on China’s economy in The Dines Letter (TDL) of Sept. 16, 2011, is still stubbornly resisted by the mainstream press, which instead persists in calling for 7.5% growth by China Since we perceive China as a barometer for the commodities markets, it followed that there would be a decline in raw-materials prices.
