Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Commodities for Every Portfolio

"With compelling arguments and pertinent observations, this book will not only tell you why you should own commodities but also how to best own them. Commodities for Every Portfolio is an excellent, very compelling, and easy-to-grasp guide to commodities and commodity-related investments. This book is a must-read for your wealth protection!"
—Marc Faber, Marc Faber Limited,
author of Tomorrow's Gold: Asia's Age of Discovery

"Read this book if you want to learn how to best benefit from the current surge in commodity prices. Emanuel's information-packed road map and easy read provides a blueprint for everyone who is interested in profiting from the commodity boom. I am reminded of Jesse Livermore's famous saying in that he made most of his money getting in on a trend and then sitting on his hands. Emanuel is handing us the trending markets on a silver (or gold or copper) platter. The rest is up to us."
—John F. Carter, President, www.tradethemarkets.com,
author of Mastering the Trade

"The commodity boom is just getting started and the next ten years offer the most lucrative opportunities for investors who are willing to learn and have a top notch teacher like Emanuel Balarie. In this book you get not only a wealth of information on commodities but the knowledge of how to actually put that knowledge into action that will lead to big profits. No big words, no fancy explanations, just real-world examples and hard-hitting strategies that are key for every investor interested in entering the world of commodities trading. I highly recommend this book."
—Kevin Kerr, Editor, Resource Trader Alert

"Commodities have been the hottest sector of the new millennium. Every investor who has considered diversifying into this explosive sector needs to read Emanuel Balarie's book."
—Phil Flynn, Vice President and Senior Market Analyst, Alaron Futures and Options

"There is plenty here for seasoned investors, given the timeliness and relevancy of the topic and the author's forecasts, but most impressive is how Commodities for Every Portfolio helps novices decide which method of commodity investment — futures, stocks, mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs) — is right for them."
