The next bull market is here. It’s not in stocks. It’s not in bonds. It’s in commodities - and some smart investors will be riding that bull to record returns in the next decade.
In Hot Commodities, Rogers offers the lowdown on the most lucrative markets for today and tomorrow. In 1998, gliding under the radar, a bull market in commodities began. Rogers thinks it’s going to continue for at least fifteen years - and he’s put his money where his mouth is: In 1998, he started his own commodities index fund. It’s up 165% since then, with more than $200 million invested, and it’s the single-best performing index fund in the world in any asset class. Less risky than stocks and less sluggish than bonds, commodities are where the money is - and will be in the years ahead. Rogers’s strategies are simple and straightforward. You can start small - a few thousand dollars will suffice. It’s all about putting your money into stuff you understand, the basic materials of everyday life, like coal, sugar, cotton, corn, or crude oil. Once you recognize the cyclical and historical trading patterns outlined here, you’ll be on your way.
In language that is both colorful and accessible, Rogers explains why the world of commodity investing can be one of the simplest of all - and how commodities are the bases by which investors can value companies, markets, and whole economies. To be a truly great investor is to know something about commodities.
For small investors and high rollers alike, Hot Commodities is as good as gold . . . or lead, or aluminum, which are some of the commodities Rogers says could be as rewarding for investors.

Could have been interesting
The audiobook is only interesting if you want to assess Jim Rogers forecasting, since he analyzed the situation back then most of the time. His strategy: supply and demand (long and short) his references: commodities year books. He does not say of he invests on the long term or short. His strategy to go out and stop losses or if he uses 2nd level thinking (in ref. To kahnemann). There was not a lot to learn unfortunately, but relatively entertaining so it is not a total fail.

Nice book but the American arrogant style....
A very nice topic, and ofc valuable knowledge.
Perhaps I am too Swiss but I like to focus on facts and in this case it is amazingly mixed with personal stories, but sometimes I have the impression that he was the smartest guy on earth and he let it know everyone around him (perhaps it is because of the lector as well).
