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 metal prices resilient

Despite all the bad news we are hearing about the economy, its interesting to reflect on commodity prices. Given the weak overtones, you might have been expected to see weakness in commodity prices. Well they have been surprisingly resilient. Copper has fallen to $US2.90/lb, but its back up over $3.00/lb. Zinc and lead are fairing even better.
I would like to think that its a sign of incredible resilience in the global economy, but I dont think so, or at least its not the whole story. I think its a shortage of metal, or more specifically delays and difficulties commissioning new mine capacity, combined with the odd strike, as mine workers attempt to benefit from some of the high metal prices. There is a huge shortage of semi-autogenous grinding (mills), tyres and a range of other consumables. Its evident that these shortages are delaying projects, and even hindering established projects. So whilst the global economy might we softening, there is little relief for commodity buyers. The reason I suspect this is the case is because metal stockpiles seem to be falling. Take a look at stockpiles at the LME and COMEX exchanges. Nickel is rising to medium term highs, but zinc stockpiles have been falling since Oct'07, lead stockpiles started falling this week, copper on the COMEX has falling stockpiles since Oct'07, and flat on the London Metals Exchange lately. Aluminium stockpiles have stabilised.
At the same time most of the commodity producing currencies have experienced something of a sell-off. eg. The AUD has fallen from 93c to 87c against the USD. So it all looks good for commodity producers. So I like Matrix Metals, given that its planning to expand output significantly.

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.
