The year 2013 is likely to bring more of what 2012 brought - a mix of strong bull and bear months in most stock indexes and commodities alike. Seeking out the top investment trends for 2013 will require some patience, or looking at some sectors … or countries … you may not have considered before. Technology still provides some opportunities, but this is where patience will be key. Emerging markets can be easily traded now through exchange traded funds (ETFs), providing a host of opportunities for those looking for a little foreign diversification - and some of these markets are still showing strength. Finally, gold was a hot topic in 2011, but with a more lateral movement in 2012 it received less focus; that could all change in 2013. By breaking down the charts, we look at key investments to watch for bullish activity in 2013.
