A Trade War Worth $58 Billion for Your Portfolio

Think you have it rough right now?

You’re certainly not alone in that sentiment. The masses are getting restless and, quite frankly, I’m not too sure how much longer Americans can go before their cooped up frustrations hit the breaking point.

We’re close.

But here’s one little secret:

Things can be much, much worse.

Close your eyes for a moment and think of how your time being locked down at home would go if we eliminated virtually all of your creature comforts.

No smartphones. 

No television. 

You certainly won't be working from home using video conference calls or any of the latest technology that we’ve come to rely on during this pandemic.

The list goes on and on... In fact, let's just take ALL of our electronics out of the picture. 

The situation gets even more grim, however, once you realize how incredibly dependent we are on foreign countries.

Then President Trump signed a little-talked about executive order that changed everything.

And there are 58 billion reasons why individual investors like us are preparing for a windfall of cash.

A Trade War With $58 Billion at Stake

In 2018, the global strategic metals market was valued at around $23 billion.

I know a few of you might be scratching your head as to what exactly constitutes a “strategic metal.”

So, let’s take a quick look…

Back in 2010, the Department of Energy under the Obama administration made a dire warning.

The Department of Energy report, highlighted a small list of rare earth elements and metals that would experience huge demand growth.

More importantly, supplies of these critical commodities simply wouldn't be able to keep pace.

That was a decade ago.

You would think that after such a warning, it would spur some response by the government to secure these valuable resources.

Unfortunately, we sat on our thumbs and watched China grow into the powerhouse it is today.

By 2017, another report was released by the U.S. government, this time by the Department of the Interior.

The findings, which were expanded to cover a list of 50 non-fuel mineral commodities, were even direr.

It turns out that the U.S. is 100% reliant on other countries to supply us with 20 of those precious commodities.

We’re not the only ones scrambling to secure those supplies, either.

The rapid pace at which global technology is advancing has driven the consumption of those strategic metals higher, and it’s clear that the world has become insatiable for them.

In fact, that market is expected to more than double in just five years!

That’s $58 billion at stake.

And it’s time to take your piece of the pie.

Next Tuesday, I’ll show you exactly which companies are sitting in a prime position to develop the United States' strategic metal resources.

We’re far behind in this game.

But like I said, that’s about to change for us.

You see, a small group of elite players have been waiting eagerly for the U.S. to get into the mix.

After Trump’s latest move to secure and build our domestic supply of those crucial materials for today’s tech boom, then you can understand their excitement.

We’re far past the time for executive orders.

And it’s time for the early investors to take advantage of this opportunity.

Demand for those metals is surging, but you don’t need to take my word for it, just take a look around you.

Stay tuned.

Until next time,
