Longtime readers know we keep a close eye on the resource sector.
But if you're new to Stansberry Research, you might wonder why... or you might be unsure about how to safely include commodities in your portfolio.
As we've discussed many times, the prices of nearly all commodities have been crushed over the past few years. And in the "boom and bust" resource market, low prices inevitably lead to high prices.
At the same time, governments all over the world are devaluing their currencies to boost their economies and gain a temporary advantage over each other. While a period of deflation is possible in the near term, we believe these "currency wars" could eventually trigger massive inflation, which could push commodities even higher.
But before you put even one dollar into the resource market, there are a few things you need to know.
First, it's important to keep in mind that the long-term trend in commodity prices is down. New technologies have made it easier, cheaper, and more efficient to find and produce commodities. And that trend is only accelerating.
The recent U.S. shale-oil boom – and the resulting crash in oil prices – is a real-time example of this trend in action.
Ultimately, this is great news. Cheaper commodities improve everyone's standard of living. But it means you must view resource investments differently than other investments. Brian Hunt and Ben Morris explained this idea in last month's Growth Stock Wire...
Second, because most commodities are priced in U.S. dollars, it can create some confusion for new resource investors. Here's more from Brian and Ben...

So where do we think the biggest opportunities are today?
Perhaps the best opportunity is in gold and gold stocks. Several Stansberry Research analysts believe we're close to a significant bottom today. As we explained, this is rare... and something we always pay attention to.
This week, our colleague Matt Badiali – Stansberry's resident commodities expert – explained why he's getting bullish, too. From the September issue of his Stansberry Resource Report...
In addition, Matt says an important relationship between gold and gold stocks has changed, and it's another good sign that gold stocks could be ready to "turn around" and head higher, too...
But that's not the only reason Matt is bullish on gold and gold stocks today...
Incredibly, he says it could be news from China that sends gold much higher.
Given the recent turmoil, you might find that surprising. But what if China could halt its stock market decline... boost its economy... virtually guarantee its inclusion in the International Monetary Fund's basket of global reserve currencies... and destabilize the U.S... with one simple announcement?
Matt says it's not only possible, but that it could happen in the next 12 months. And if it does, the price of gold could jump 50% or more overnight... and gold stocks could soar.
Matt put together a presentation explaining all the details. Click here to see for yourself.
