Here are the key points from the latest PortfolioDirect investment report. The cyclical positioning - based on metal price movements - continues to deteriorate in the absence of a global growth acceleration and with pressures on prices from a rising US dollar. The PortfolioDirect volatility measure has begun to decline. Less volatility usually attracts investor interest at the margin but prices remain consistent with a cyclical trough as they stay below the previous market low point in June 2013. The correlation between investment returns and 'quality' has been breaking down as lower volatility coincides with highly leveraged nano-cap stocks moving above sometimes extraordinarily low market values. No new portfolio changes have been recommended. (VIEW LINK).
