Chris Pia, commodities trader, currently maintains his focus on metals. Back in March, he made the prediction that gold would hit $1,900 per ounce by September of 2011. His prediction turned out to be absolutely correct. This type of foresight is exactly why Pia is fast becoming the go-to in commodities trading for gold.

Chris Pia launched his own fund and currently maintains a focus on metals. Pia is in active planning for the new year and intends to scale back on some of the trading in equities, and focus more in depth on his full-on return to commodities. Pia's imposing track record showing a lock in at 17%, along with having never experienced a down year is supplying the momentum he will need to break into increasingly impressive stock picks.

Although slightly down this year due to lag in sector stock picks such as SWC, or Stillwater Mining, Pia currently manages over $400 million in assets. In the upcoming year, Pia plans to focus on scaling back his equities trading and return to more active commodities investments.
