The commodities boom is over. And two things you shouldn't do in today's market

May 2013
In Search of the Perfect Investment;5/10/2013, p1
The article comments on the performance of commodities supplies as of May 2013. All the precious metals such as gold, silver, and even iron ore are said to be declining. For the author, the culprit is not China, instead, he believes that the cause is due to what mining gurus always say that when prices go up, miners open more mines or extend existing ones. He adds that mines can be opened right away and can be extended for a longer time due to today's technology.
