Spotting international investment trends is the way to sustain the purchasing power of your wealth and there are seven powerful international investment trends that Gary Scott follows at this site and in the Gary Scott daily ezine. Here are these seven international investment trends.
International Investment Trend #1: Borrow Low-Deposit High takes advantage of currency distortions. This is one of the powerful international investment trends I have been writing about for nearly two decades, called a multicurrency sandwich.
This idea begins with making a diversified investment. For example right now one could spread 20% in Hungarian florins, 20% in Polish 20% in Euro, 20% in Norwegian kroner and 20% in New Zealand dollars. This gives a higher return than is available in U.S. dollars and provides currency diversification.
You can then use this investment as collateral to make a loan which is also invested in theses higher yielding currencies above. You can currently borrow Japanese yen, Swiss francs and US dollars with an average loan value as low of 2.44%.
This international investing trend greatly enhances your profit potential though it also increases risk.
Sandwich tactic is covered in detail at Gary Scott courses.
You can get more details from one of this site's valuable

International Investment Trend #2: Value is always an important international investing trend and this site periodically reviews global stock markets based on a value analysis provided by Michael Keppler of Keppler Asset Management .
Keppler updates value trends of every major and emerging market each month and we let you know which offers the best international investment trends. State Street Global Advantage Major and Emerging Markets High Value Funds follows his value recommendations and continue to be ranked #1 in three year performance compared to its peers.
International Investment Trend #3: We share winning international investment trends in the next industrial era. (bio-tech, nano-tech, alternate medicine, etc.)
International Investment Trend #4: This site also search for international investment trends based on nostalgia. As the world changes at an increasingly fast pace, people everywhere want something to hold on to from their past. Harley Davidson for example when the U.S. market was crashing announced record revenue and earnings.
International Investment Trend #5: Another way fight inflation is with real estate and commodities (gold, silver, platinum, oil or etc.). If trends repeat the 70s and 80s, real estate prices and commodity prices will rise as the U.S. dollar falls.
International Investment Trend #6: Among
the important international investment trends that fight
inflation are collectibles. A USA Today Money section cover
story titled "Collector cars flex muscle versus markets" read "Rekindled nostalgia fuels red-hot sales as stocks plummet." The
article pointed out that classic car markets were on fire
as the stock market fell fueled by muscle cars from the
60s and 70s. Recently a Chevelle convertible with a 454
engine and four speed manual transmission sold for $172,800.
A Plymouth Roadrunner for $135,000 and a 67 Corvette for
$151,200. The list goes on.
International Investment Trend #7: Jeremy Grantham one of Wall Street's most respected investment managers feels (as we do) that timber s one of the safest international investing trends to follow.
of Grantham made in a Wall Street Journal interview was
that Timber is the only low-risk, high-return asset class
in existence because people are not familiar with it. What
they are not familiar with they avoid. He believes that
timber is the only commodity that has had a steadily rising
price for 200 years, 100 years, 50 years, 10 years. And
a unit of wood, just the price of a piece of wood -- in
real terms -- beat the S&P over most of the 20th Century, from 1910 to 2000. The price of a piece of wood actually outgrew the price of a share of the S&P, which is an unfair context, because there is some growth embedded in the share of the S&P and there is no growth embedded in a single cubic foot of wood. The yield from timber averaged about 6.5%. The yield from the S&P
averaged 4.5%. One reason for this is that owners can withhold
the forest. If the price of lumber is not good, they don't
cut. Not only is there no cost of storage, the trees continue
to grow and get more valuable.
This means that in any economic condition international investments in timber can be good!
