Thanks for that @TrendFollower, just to add the weekly chart to your chart above and match the etf in the OP. Solid looking bottom. I know nuclear is all very political, hence the low demand currently, but electric cars may well lead to a wake up reprisal, especially by Germany, after billions spent on eco not really working out and needing new pipelines from Russia and tankers from the US, and Japan who are totally energy dependent.

Not an investor as such myself but the chatter I've been listening to is from the older guys who are looking to buy and hold. Price just above 1000 has held firm since 2016, in late 2011 this was trading at over 8000. Japan and Germany backed off nuclear but may be forced to reconsider along with other western countries if/when they choose to go big on electric cars.

@TrendFollower, thanks for your comments but they don't relate to the video in any way, you may not taken the 5 minutes to view it so I'll summarise;

The historic peaks in uranium price correspond to lack of supply and the latest estimate figures (2018) indicate a new phase of supply deficit now coming into play just as demand is about to take off with scheduled global nuclear power plant renewal and a massive increase in planned electric car production, especially in China.

@TrendFollower, they are not his charts, google uranium supply and demand and you will find a dozen links to research articles pointing out a forth coming supply shortage for expected demand in various publications over the last 6 months.

All he has done is to research the topic, build a narrative based on that research and presented it in a video, take it or leave it. All I've done is reproduced it simply because it rings true.

There after anyone can do with it whatever they like. 🙂

Better to be aware than ignorant.

@TrendFollower, your linked article is nuclear fuel rod specific and takes no account of China's planned explosive increase in the production of electric cars at all. The second graph in my post above shows deficit in the estimated supply for 2018 after years of over supply and as these things tend go in phases may well be signalling an extended period of low supply levels at a time of high demand. The 2018 figures are yet to be verified but the point of the video and my reproduction of it was to act as a heads up for a potential big move to come. Take it or leave it.

@TrendFollower  really not sure where you're coming from, it has absolutely nothing to do me or my investments. I'm not interested in giving investment advice I am merely passing on interesting information.

Someone researching a topic has found two factual pieces of information and put them together to form a narrative indicating a possible future big move of a commodity. It really is as simple as that.

I reproduced it here because some may be interested as the information as a package has not been considered in the media and so will not be widely known as yet.

What anyone does with the information is completely up to them, they can take it or leave it. If you want to explore it in greater detail please do so. To me it is just of general interest in line with my previous posts above.

So to recap from my very first post from early November;

1/ uranium is at a price cycle low and has started to rise.

2/ a period of over supply of the last 8-9 years (2009- 2016) looks to be turning to a period of under supply.

3/ the last couple of years has seen increased planning for nuclear power plant rebuilds and an explosion in the planned manufacture of electric cars, especially in China.

ergo; some readers might suspect price may rise in the near future and some might not.

UAE regulator in final stages of issuing license for nuclear plant

ABU DHABI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates’ regulator is in the final stages of issuing a license to the operator of the Barakah nuclear power plant now being built but cannot yet give a date for when it will be granted, a senior official said on Wednesday.

Operator Nawah Energy Company said in May that Barakah should start up between the end of 2019 and early 2020. It will be the UAE’s first nuclear plant and the world’s largest when complete, with four reactors and 5,600 megawatts (MW) capacity.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
