Global Mining Investing is a reference eBook to teach investors how to think and act as investors with a underlying theme of managing risk. The book touches on a huge amount of content which heavily relies on knowledge that can only be obtained through experience...The text was engaging, as I knew the valuable outcome was to be a better thinker and investor.

While some books (such as Coulson’s An Insider’s Guide to the Mining Sector) focus on one particular commodity this book (Global Mining Investing) attempts (and does well) to cover all types of mining and commodities.

Base Metals - due for a shake out?

The base metals like Copper, Aluminium, Zinc and Lead seem to be holding up very well considering the uncertainties in the market. In contrast nickel is faring far worse, but it has likely bottomed. Paradoxically nickel miners are recording strong prices. There are I guess a number of reasons for this:
1. Strong demand from China
2. A market view that the Fed will support the market with a rate cut
3. Tight supplies for some metals

Having said that, the fundamentals dont look so good for some metals, and some charts might give reason for concern. The chart above shows that copper prices have retreated from a strong resistance level. My belief is that copper is headed down to $US2.50/lb, but it will then find support. Long term I think the outlook is positive, and we are likely to see an ascending triangle develop in coming years....a protracted period of high prices. I think things will be ok in the short term because it takes time for bad loans to be liquidated, and in the meantime there are strikes and the prospect of a Fed stimulus. But I really dont see higher copper prices in the medium term.
1.Copper prices have been held up by strikes in Chile and Mexico
2. We have yet to see any flow through of softer demand from China
3. There is a shortage of lead and aluminium because of a lack of discoveries. Stocks are thus short and prices bouyant.

But there has been alot of nickel capacity added so nickel prices have collapsed. But we might expect a turnaround there, so for the next 2-3weeks I expect stronger metal prices, but then massive selling.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
