Referring to Hideki Amikura’s opinion – forex mgr Nomura Trust and Banking, Tokyo-, it will be a disaster when investors have reach the reluctance in investing their money in the capital market and put their money in the commodity market.
What has it got to do with the commodity market? well.., you may have already seen it, oil price is rocketing, wheat price reached new record of the highest price, as well as the soy bean ( ahaa..we experiencing this in our country right?..no more TEMPE for a while..). The Consumers / poor people is at STAKE!!
How to stop it? Bill Gros – Investor Guru from US- said that the conditions are as a result of the raging bull investment managers, they acted as if they can do anything in the capital market world, plus.., the lacking of capital market rules that limits them in jeopardizing the investors.
