President Trump is about to end the U.S.-China trade war.
It will happen within the next four to 12 weeks.
That’s the latest message from International Speculator editor Dave Forest, who’s telling his readers to start preparing now. And he says one sector in particular is about to take off. I’ll share that with you in just a moment.
But first, let’s look at why Trump would do this.
• According to Dave, this is all part of Trump’s master plan…
It’s a way for him to step in and play hero as the U.S. heads into election season. Here’s what Dave told his subscribers on Tuesday:
By announcing an end to the trade war, Trump would instantly win points with a big voter population.
Sure, many Americans applaud his tough stance on China. He’s not wrong – there’s a lot of unfair Chinese trade practices.
But here’s the beautiful thing from his perspective: He’s already made the point. China knows he’s willing to take off the gloves.
If anyone thinks the Chinese government is going to fold up completely under continued tariffs, they’re dreaming. At this point, there’s little more to be gained from continued trade posturing.
Trump is savvy enough to realize this. He’ll play the hero. It’s completely in keeping with his character.
I was intrigued by Dave’s comments, so I called him up for more on this.
Here’s what he told me:
Truth is, I don’t think he really cares about the trade war with China. I don’t think this is the molehill he wants to die on.
But he knows it’s putting enormous pressure on U.S. farmers, for example… who are a huge voting bloc. So imagine if he can step in, right as they’re ramping up election season, and say, “Hey, we’ve solved the problem. China is good. Exports are back on.”
The boost in popularity would be notable. I mean, I don’t see why he wouldn’t do that.
This is a big deal.
• You see, Dave’s not typically known for making these types of predictions…
He’s our in-house geologist. I’ve worked closely with him over the past couple years, and I can tell you that he eats, sleeps, and breathes commodities… and travels all over the world to uncover the best money-making opportunities. His recent travels include Brazil, Myanmar, Hong Kong, the jungles of Laos, and Colombia, just to name a few.

But here’s the thing…
You see, this isn’t a macroeconomic or political prediction.
This call has everything to do with what Dave describes as an imminent “commodities boom for the ages.”
That’s because, when Trump ultimately pulls the plug on the trade war, it’s going to have massive, and rapid, implications for the entire commodities complex.
Especially base metals like copper and zinc…
• Dave says it will give them a much-needed boost…
As you may know, the trade war has been one big drag on these metals.
Copper prices have dropped 22% since the trade war began in January 2018. Zinc prices are down 27% during the same time frame.
The performance of industrial metals is linked to economic growth. The trade war has made investors skittish on the world economy. So whenever metals like copper or zinc try to rally higher (which the fundamentals say they should), investors sell into the strength.
Once the trade war’s over, it’ll be off to the races for these key metals. Investors will be euphoric about the global economy again. It’ll be like popping a cork from a champagne bottle. Combine that 180-degree turn in sentiment with strong fundamentals for metals like copper – and you’ve got an explosive setup.

Our founder, Doug Casey, and Strategic Investor editor E.B. Tucker share the same controversial opinion: Climate change is one big hoax. Find out why in our exclusive interview right here.
• And that’s just the beginning…
Dave says the end of the trade war will bring attention to all commodities. It will be the X factor that kicks this commodities cycle into high gear.
Oil… zinc… agriculture stocks… you name it.
These sectors will suddenly have a big lift altogether as people rush back in.
With one single tweet, the president will send the entire commodities sector into a full-blown mania.
• And now’s the time to position yourself…
For the biggest gains, Dave recommends getting into copper.
As I showed you, it’s been beaten down… and it will be one of the biggest beneficiaries once Trump makes the announcement.
Dave says that the turnaround could be so big that even larger-cap copper plays could see double-digit gains quickly.
But for even bigger gains, Dave’s favorite plays are the junior copper stocks, which he believes have even greater upside. Right now, he’s focused on one tiny company that’s developing one of the world’s largest new copper mines. It keeps delivering the highest-grade copper discoveries on the planet. He sent an urgent alert on this company yesterday, which subscribers can access here.
If you’d like to take part in the coming boom, just remember that copper stocks, like most stocks in the mining industry, are extremely volatile. Never bet more money than you can afford to lose. And take profits as they come.

P.S. There’s another move Trump is making behind the scenes that you need to know about right now…
Dave says it all centers on Executive Order 13817 – which will unlock a mega-industry set to explode as high as 6,400%.
