What Investment Theme Will Lead the Market in 2023?
Written by Keith Schneider (on behalf of Michele ‘Mish’ Schneider) and Wade Dawson
The Big View: Key Investment Themes by Decade 1950-2022. During the 1970s commodities and emerging markets led with cumulative 1,500% USD returns.
Market leaders are constantly evolving and staying up to date on the newest trends and macro events can be challenging.
Looking back at previous decades of market leadership provides insight into how market leaders change over time, and the impressive cumulative returns indicate potential future market leadership gains.
It may seem grim this week as tech stocks like Apple, TSLA, Meta, and other mega-cap names continue to fall, but history reminds us that new leaders are potentially emerging.
Traders should stay attuned to shifting current market conditions to look for new leadership trends. It helps to have trading indicators and research tools to pinpoint changing market leadership. So, what does all this mean for investment themes in 2023?
To stay on top of shifting market leadership, it is essential to be aware of the key factors that signal changing leadership.
Our Triple Play Indicator can help signal and alert traders where and when capital should be deployed based on market leadership.
The last decade had a fantastic run for large-cap growth stocks, and the FAANGs dominated until the beginning of 2022.
Given the crypto winter and current crypto FTX crisis, a shifting macro backdrop might usher in fresh leadership, similar to commodities emerging in the 1970s with precious metals gaining astronomical returns.
It is also consistent with our view that we are in a comparable inflationary environment as the 1970s.
Real assets, particularly gold, exemplify potential new leadership emerging. The Triple Play indicator measures price leadership and volume strength, and gold outperforms the SPY ETF above.
When the Triple Play blue line is above the red line, it’s bullish. It highlights that gold will likely continue to rally while its trend is strengthening.
The indicators and data provided by our Triple Play Indicator can help you stay ahead of shifting market leadership so you can adjust your trades accordingly.
