Would it be a good idea to have a thread dedicated solely to things that are set to rise in price soon? Kind of a heads up type of deal.

For instance, corn prices are probably going to be going up very soon. It would be a good time now to stock up and avoid the pinch.

A running list, in one thread could be interesting to look back on as well.

I'd contribute to that thread. Corn and Soybean followed by Pork, Beef, Chicken (and eggs) and Turkey (almost Thanksgiving in the US, then Christmas. I know, a new thread for that, but this is where I'd start.

This is a great idea and glad you brought it up. I think it's worth researching more the potential impact (short term and long term) the trade war with China may have. If they stick to their guns and discontinue the purchase of US agricultural products, we may see some more tit for tat retaliation that leads to surges in prices for many goods. Apple products are obvious, but I'm curious to see how wide and deep these issues grow to become

Thanks @Bunker Bob !

I think we should definitely watch agricultural products. Between China and the flooding from last winter, it could get to be an issue.

Full disclosure....

I've been saying for years that silver will bust out eventually, because traditionally silver has always been about 1 to 10 value to gold...so silver is grossly undervalued and manipulated.

I've been wrong for years.

The problem is, I still believe it...I just have no idea when market forces will overcome market manipulation. It's difficult to predict, because most precious metals that are traded aren't actually real...very few people take delivery of actual, real gold and silver, so they trade it using fractional reserve practices. That may blow up tomorrow, or it may carry on as is for another 100 years.

I was reading somewhere that there is concern that Brexit is going to screw up their ability to manipulate the price. It may have been a hack job by an anti-Brexit type though.

For what it's worth, silver is up quite a bit right now.

Spam (Spare Parts All Meat) prices are reported to be rising. This is predictable since grains are rising = animal feed.

Peaches? I had not considered other crops, but it makes sense that they too were effected by the rainy weather and flooding.
