2016 Commodity Outlook: El Niño To Shake Things Up?

Slide 6:

In recent weeks we’ve been discussing what’s in store for commodities in 2016.After a disastrous 2015, investors are searching for signs of a bottom in assets like crude oil, gold, corn, and coffee.

Slide 7:

Let’s pick up right where we left off… In the first part of this 2016 commodity outlook series we discussed oil, natural gas, gold and silver.

Slide 8:

While there’s certainly an oversupply of energy commodities at the moment, I suspect we’ll see a bullish shift in market structure in 2016.

Slide 9:

As for precious metals, not only are fundamentals and sentiment still overwhelmingly bearish but the technical trend is still solidly to the downside.

Slide 10:

Until inflation becomes an issue, or the Federal Reserve backtracks on their plan to raise interest rates, precious metals will likely stay under bearish pressure .

Slide 11:

As you can see, it’s a mixed bag when it comes to the world’s most widely traded commodities.

Slide 12:

What about lesser-known assets?

Slide 13:

First of all, let me point out that very few commodities escaped the 2015 wipeout unscathed. Only cocoa, orange juice, and cotton are turning in positive performance since the start of the year.

Slide 14:

That leaves a lot of commodities down in the dumps… Take coffee, which is down 31% year-to-date . With the luscious bean trading at multi-decade lows near $1.20 a pound investors are wondering if an uptrend will ever return to this market.

Slide 15:

Their questions may soon be answered… Analysts at the International Coffee Organization foresee production cutbacks coming from several major producing countries .

Slide 16:

As a result, even more emphasis will be placed on Brazil, the world’s largest coffee producer.

Slide 17:

While it’s tough to say if Brazil will be able to pick up the slack in the next production cycle, I can tell you this… The price of coffee is quite oversold on a long-term basis .

Slide 18:

That fact increases the odds of a2016 rally, should weather related worries actually come to fruition. The get an idea of what I’m talking about, look tothe sugar market .

Slide 19:

The commodity is seeing a substantial price upturn in recent weeks due to similar technical and fundamental market factors.

Slide 20:

That leaves us with grains…

Slide 21:

All three of the major grain markets- corn, soybeans, and wheat- are trading at multi-year lows thanks to abundant global supplies. It’s becoming quite clear farmers are getting darn good at what they do.

Slide 22:

Thanks to modern technology, they’re producing remarkable quantities of grains in record time. As a result, global grain stocks are teeming with inventory.

Slide 23:

Therefore, it’s not surprising to see corn and wheat trading at their lowest prices since the 2009 financial crisis. Is there any hope for corn and soybean bulls in 2016?

Slide 24:

As of right now, it’s not looking so good. Thanks to one of the strongest El Niño’s ever recorded developing in the Pacific Ocean, it’s likely these two commodities stay subdued in 2016.

Slide 25:

After all, the disruptive weather pattern typically brings well-timed rainfall to the US plains . The situation will likely contribute to another abundant corn and soybean harvest next year.

Slide 26:

What about wheat?

Slide 27:

While El Niño provides the US with ample rain, the opposite happens in Australia. The continent suffers higher temperatures and lack of rainfall.

Slide 28:

Since Australia is one of the world’s largest wheat producers, an output downturn couldprovide support for the commodity in 2016.

Slide 29:

The same goes for cotton… El Niño induced drought in India, the world’s second largest producer of the commodity behind China, tends to support prices .

Slide 30:

Given the multi-year flat line in cotton prices, cotton bulls will welcome any disruptive force sending prices higher.

Slide 31:

To sum it all up…

Slide 32:

There’s still plenty of uncertainty in store for commodities in 2016. Shaky global economic growth mixed with a strong US Dollar will be a force to reckon with, just as it is in 2015.

Slide 33:

But that’s not to say there won’t be bullish opportunities in hard assets. This year’s El Niño is shaping up to be one of the largest on record.

Slide 34:

As a result, many soft and grain commodities could see price gains as the weather pattern alters production. In case you’re unaware, these are exactly the types of opportunities we focus on in the Commodity ETF Alert.

Slide 35:

This bi-monthly service keys you in on the commodity-focused asset with the most profit potential. Each month’s recommendation is in a carefully selected commodity ETF or commodity producing company.

Slide 36:

With a subscription costing a mere $8.25 a month ($99/year), it’s one the least expensive ways to keep abreast of commodity trends and profit opportunities.
