Now I have seen it all...you are repeating what I told you months ago...you must have forgotten where you learned that...
...do some dd to learn about financial mkts and commodities...it is all dollar based, period...if you dont believe me why does commodities and gold move opposite the USD 95% of the time??...so when the dollar goes down, you mean HF's and institutions go long everytime and in coordinated fashion?...once again you know just enough to be dangerous...
....I follow the effective volume on institutions almost everyday and I can tell you once again you have no idea what your talking about.
Sure retail can trade etf's but by your own admission retail doesnt mean jack as far as price mkt right?..
Your point #3 proves my point...you repeated what I said, with a recession people didnt go out and buy things that would drive up demand for commodities...hence it is based on the value of the dollar...why cant you understand this simple concept...
Once again you assume and make an ass out of yourself...who said I was in the financial industry?...
...anyone who understands the economy and the equity mkts on here will see through your superficial knowledge base...it should be clear to all who is the fraud when it comes to finances...
...as I said before, stick to politics.

Yes, institutional and hedge fund investors DID get out of Real Estate (CDO's, mortgage funds, etc) and moved into commodities and gold. The numbers are all publicly available.
2) you somehow have missed the entire ETF commodity product for retail investors. You don't have to go trade yourself on the floor to invest in commodities.
3) you somehow have missed that demand has DROPPED due to unemployment, yet commodity prices have gone up regardless. People didn't move out of their house and go on consumer spending spree's. They lost their job, lost their house, and live in their relative's basements trying to not spend any money at all.
I pity your clients you give financial advice to. I'm just an amateur retail investor, and I know about this stuff you seem to be completely clueless about. You are letting your politics get in the way of your financial analysis. You should get out of politics.
