When looking to the future, there is always uncertainty and there are no sure bets. Each opportunity presented, and this is not an exhaustive list, is unique and presents its own rewards and risks. Malaysia and Mexico are still strong and that could continue, while the technology sector in the U.S. - including Apple - requires a bit more of a pullback before it will likely present its best buying opportunity. South Africa and Argentina are in "wait-and-see" mode; if an upside breakout occurs it will likely trigger a longer term rise. Gold recently broke higher out of a triangle pattern and is likely starting its next advance. In each case, however, there are levels to watch which signal the price may fall instead of rise. Always know and manage your risk, and make 2013 a prosperous year.
