    Unbeknownst to many people because they are solely focused on copper (Cu) and the potential bear market there, another metal is in a nascent bull run. The metal in question is Nickel (Ni) which has just broken out from a 3 year downtrend. The 50 day moving average has crossed up thru the 200 day which is favorable and known as a "Golden Cross". The easiest way to play nickel which appears to be off the public radar are the two ETNs: The Ipath Pure Beta Nickel ETN (NYSEARCA:NINI) and Dow Jones AIG Nickel Total Return Sub Index (NYSEARCA:JJN). A word of caution both are thinly traded so make sure you use limit orders at least until interest in these build and volume expands. As always keep a mental stop and enjoy the ride.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in NINI over the next 72 hours.

    Author’s reply » A limit order directs your broker to pay no more than a specific price for the stock your are trying to buy although at times you can get the order filled for less than the limit. Brokers if you are using one know what this is. Additionally, if you are trading via an online broker then there is an option to direct what kind of order it is: Market, which means buy at prevailing price (not necessarily best price for you) as well as an option for a limit order where your specify your max price. Hope that helps
