You must position yourself for the proper trends.
In addition, despite the doldrums in the United States, there are still long-term secular booms in sectors like gold and oil and gas and in places like India, Vietnam, South Korea, Brazil and China.

There are plenty of opportunities in the world. You just have to work hard and look for them.
