Top Picks 2018: BHP Billiton Could Ride the Rising Tide for Commodities

The commodity market is coming alive.

The bull market rise in stocks has been impressive. In fact, the stock market has risen every month in 2017 in its longest streak of monthly gains in 22 years, explain Mary Anne and Pamela Aden, editors of The Aden Forecast.

The commodity market is coming alive. After years of low prices, the stronger global economy means that we’ll likely see far better times in the resource sector as 2018 unfolds.

Copper seems to be leading the pack and the future looks bright. With demand growing it’s set to head higher. That’s especially true considering the growing popularity of electric cars and their future growth potential. This alone will keep strong upward pressure on copper.

The chart shows copper’s big picture going back to 1978. A renewed strong rise began this year, reinforcing a solid uptrend since 2001. Also, note the developing upchannel encompassing the 1990s to today.

Crude oil, for instance, is also strong. With production slowing, we could see the oil price much higher in the months ahead. Considering these factors and more, our top pick is BHP Billiton (BHP).
