Many investors would be happy to see the back of 2015 as they've lost money betting on three popular themes. With the way things are unfolding, these three trades may not fare much better in the New Year. The first is positioning their stock portfolio for the end of the yield trade. We are in an era of lower for longer interest rates and stocks offering mediocre growth but can sustain a fat payout will likely remain in the good books. By extension, small caps will continue to do well in 2016 as they can offer growth that's largely independent of the broader economy. The second losing trade was betting on the plunge in the gold price to below $US1,000 an ounce. Gold certainly looked out of favour and heading to three-digit territory in the first half of 2015, but has found support at around $US1,100 an ounce. Click to read for free (VIEW LINK)
