Margin Debt, Gold & Commodities

Here some quick hits of economic news that people who follow economics
and investors should like:

Margin debt: The most recent numbers show a decline, which is bearish.

Gold is starting to get noticed again by investors.

The latest data shows that money managers increased net-long positions for a fourth straight week through July 1 and holdings in exchange-traded products are climbing at the fastest pace since 2012. Holdings are rebounding after six straight quarterly declines that began before gold entered a bear market in April 2013.

Several months back due growing money supply from the Federal Reserve creating an artificial boom in stocks I plunged a lot of cash into oil and agriculture. I have not been disappointed. For example,  The Bloomberg Commodity Index, for example, rose 7.1 per cent in the first half of the year.
