Since 2011 the financial markets have been dominated by rises in paper markets and declines in commodity markets.
Group One Paper Examples: T-Bonds, US Dollar Index, S&P 500 Index
Group Two Commodity Examples: Crude Oil, Sugar, Wheat, Gold, Silver
Group One markets are “paper” markets in fiat debt, fiat currency, and paper equities. They are heavily influenced by “money printing,” Quantitative Easing, High-Frequency-Trading, futures, central banks, and political agendas.
Group Two markets are supposedly more real commodity markets, but they are also influenced by futures trading, HFT, and other agendas.
