Interested in member’s thoughts on where the next boom will be. I can’t see one on the horizon - mainly because of capital restrictions imposed on Chinese/Indian citizens by their own governments, and upon foreign nationals by governments in most Western countries. In other words, we’ve seen just about every restriction imposed as possible - all designed to boost national currencies/mainstream markets. Without knowing the ins and outs of capital restrictions on each asset class I see: Shares - no reason why they can’t continue to rise due to ZIRP or near-ZIRP policies of central banks, won’t be a boom though. Gold - not until something drastic happens or the two aforementioned nations relax restrictions, then maybe boom, for all the reasons that we value it. Silver - maybe on the coat tails of the yellow metal, but it’s only value is industrial or maybe speculative and so it may be useful for a quick run and then dump. Property - peaked, maybe will continue to rise but the boom is over. Cryptos - no reason why it can’t keep galloping (or trotting) along, until China/India do something. Then it may be gold’s turn. Cryptos are here for good though. Moral? Long term investments with $$$ you really want to see grow but can’t afford to lose the lot = shares, gold, property and the major cryptos. Short term playing the cycles with $$$ you can afford to lose, silver, alt-coins, crowd-funding. Then of course there’s futures. Looking forward to comments and corrections.
