Commodities Are Warning Of A Big Slowdown

Please consider a series of chart my friend “BC” put together of various indices vs. the Morgan Stanley Commodity Related Equity Index ($CRX).

What is the Commodities Sector Seeing that the Stock Market Doesn’t?

The answer from my friend Pater Tenebrarum who also saw these charts is “the coming economic bust in China – which has likely already begun.” 

That idea is in-line with several of my recent posts …

  • World Bank Warns of Economic Crisis in China; Only 3% Growth for Decade Says Michael Pettis
  • “Curbs Needed to Avoid China Property Chaos” Says China’s Premier; Chinese Economy Already in Hard Landing? Regardless, It’s Too Late to Prevent Chaos
