I never really understood investing in commodities. It seems that gold and oil gain more for long term investors when stock prices begin to go down and other investors seek alternative investments, thus raising the price of oil and gold.
After such interpretation, it seems that a recent increase in gold gain is probably caused by investors running from stock markets which are about to collapse, not anything related to gold itself. This might not be true.
However, oil gains have some significant fluctuations on their own.
What: “Gain” is the amount one’s investment would change if USD 100 were invested five years ago. Stock is made from Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq Composite indices. Oil is represented by Crude Oil. When: The chart begins in February 1990, but the data begins in February 1985. The most recent data is in April 2020. Source: investing.com
After zooming in the axis, the constant decrease is clear. I don’t know whether 129 million hectares is a big deal or not, but we were happier if the trend were the opposite. However people are also planting forest, and since they cut more and more, they plant more and more too. Now the rate of planting is less than the rate of cutting, but I believe one day the trend will be reversed.
What: Land used as forest and types of forest. Mind the axis on the left graph which does not start at zero. When: 1990-2017 Where: The world Source: FAO
