You should be looking at Freeport McMoran (FCX).  Freeport benefits from rises in the price of copper. The company is also a large producer of gold. We will cover Freeport McMoran tommorow.

You should note the effect that demand from China can have  on commodity prices. One theme that should become evident is that when China starts to demand the supply of a commodity its price is likely to rise dramatically. This will create lots of opportunites for smart investors.

There are several ways to take advantage of thirsty demand for commodities from China. These include: sector stocks, ETFs, options, and commodity futures contracts.

We will be honing in on these opportunities in the days and weeks ahead.

So stay tuned daily.
