Here's your front row seat to the action that took place at the start of 2014: Crude oil prices were circling the drain of a one-month low.

The Most Comprehensive 2014 Commodity Outlook (Part 3)
EWI's Chief Commodities Analyst Jeffrey Kennedy reveals whether it's safe to jump back in the commodity waters

By Nico Isaac

In 2013, many investors in the pool of hard assets got a Great White–sized bite out of their bullish expectations. In fact, last year, commodities as a whole registered their first annual loss since 2008 as an all-time record $42.9 billion made its way out of commodity exchange traded products, according to a Reuters report. The sell-off has raised one simple question: Is it safe to go back into the commodity waters?

After this year’s Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks aren't the only ones kicking off 2014 on a high note. This January, the DJ-UBS Commodity Index scored a slight gain after ending 2013 in the red, down 10%. This recent move up fuels one question: Is the end in sight for the relentless drubbing of raw materials over the last few years?

These days, being a fan of commodities is as hard as continuing to support the Atlanta Falcons. (Who were supposed to have a brilliant football season but have been beaten down by injuries. That's for all of you non-fans out there.)

In fact, it's not just commodities. From almost every direction, there is no love for hard assets, period.

The Skinny on Lean Hogs’ Hog-Wild Price Move
The rally to fresh contract high in hog prices fulfills our Elliott wave outlook

By Nico Isaac

On Wednesday, September 25, lean hog futures went hog wild as they soared to a fresh contract high. That's the easy part. The more difficult part is discerning why. Elliott wave analysis points to lean hogs’ price chart and the final wave in the wave pattern. The mainstream experts, for all their expertise, are of little to no help in securing a clear answer.

By Nico Isaac

From the start of 2013 to the end of July, cotton prices plodded along in a snooze-worthy sideways trend. But cotton blew up in August like a powder keg. Here's a recap of the combustion: During weeks one through three of August, cotton exploded upwards to its highest level in one year. Then in week four, the market's flame fizzled. Prices turned down to a three-month low before catching wind again.

If you made a New Year's resolution to give up coffee, you're not alone. Since the start of January 2013, coffee prices have been in an uninterrupted free fall to their lowest level in four years. Lots of people just gave up on coffee, one way or another.

For the last five months, the cotton market has been the ultimate cure for insomnia ... until now. On August 7, 2013, cotton prices broke out of their insufferable, snooze-inducing sideways holding pattern to rally strongly. The experts see “no clear reason” for the about-face, but we do.

Learn the Why, What and How of Elliott Wave Analysis

Financial media use news and economic events to explain market moves. Steer clear of this misguided approach. Take part in the Elliott Wave Crash Course to learn what really moves the markets.

The Elliott Wave Principle is a detailed description of how financial markets behave. The description reveals that mass psychology swings from pessimism to optimism and back in a natural sequence, creating specific Elliott wave patterns in price movements. Each pattern has implications regarding the position of the market within its overall progression, past, present and future. The purpose of Elliott Wave International’s market-oriented publications is to outline the progress of markets in terms of the Wave Principle and to educate interested parties in the successful application of the Wave Principle. While a course of conduct regarding investments can be formulated from such application of the Wave Principle, at no time will Elliott Wave International make specific recommendations for any specific person, and at no time may a reader, caller or viewer be justified in inferring that any such advice is intended. Investing carries risk of losses, and trading futures or options is especially risky because these instruments are highly leveraged, and traders can lose more than their initial margin funds. Information provided by Elliott Wave International is expressed in good faith, but it is not guaranteed. The market service that never makes mistakes does not exist. Long-term success trading or investing in the markets demands recognition of the fact that error and uncertainty are part of any effort to assess future probabilities.
