Housing Inventory Tracking

Update: Watching existing home "for sale" inventory is very helpful. As an example, the increase in inventory in late 2005 helped me call the top for housing. And the decrease in inventory eventually helped me correctly call the bottom for house prices in early 2012, see: The Housing Bottom is Here.

The graph below shows the year-over-year change for non...

The answer to the huge increase in demand is simple: electric vehicles (EV) are growing in popularity, and battery-based tech, particularly in renewable energy sectors, has pushed demand for lithium up and up. The real question now is: how are lithium suppliers going to feed all this new demand Thank Tesla, of course. The EV pioneer has risen the profile of EV tech and opened up its first "gigafactory" in January 2017. But Tesla isn't alone: it only provides 30% of EVs...
