Excerpt March 2016: investor interest shifts from technology and healthcare to gold mines and gold ETFs

According to trendscout, investors domiciled in Europe and Asia are shifting their attention in regards to sector allocation. While Technology and Health Care had attracted a lot of interest for quite some time, the tide has recently turned. Health Care has been losing steam since last fall, and Technology has corrected from its year-end rally.  Investor’s focus is now shifting towards depressed cyclical sectors like Gold Mining and even towards Physical Gold ETFs:
