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.

Gold convincingly breaks $1000/oz

Gold has convincingly broken $US1000/oz, in fact it ran up to $1030/oz before being sold back to $1010/oz at the time of this post. Based on the current market circumstances, having broken $1000 there seems no 'fundamental' reason why it should not hold the $1000/oz support. It was a firm breach of the psychologically important $1000/oz level, so I am expecting it to hold.
I was actually expecting some short term weakness in gold because its rallied recently, and I expected the USD to hold the important JPY100-101 support for at least a week or two. The failure of the 4th largest US investment bank Bear Stearns on Friday changed that. That saw the Fed aggressively lift support, which greatly changed the risk perceptions in favour of gold, and made the prospect of lower interest rates more likely....all to no avail mind you.

I note the greater interest shown in spec gold stocks today (Monday), and I expect that will continue for the remainder of the week. I do believe we have seen the bottom. As indicated previously, I see base metals trading south, though they will hold their long term uptrend. I expect uptrends will be tied to weaknesses in the USD and I believe these industrial-based commodities will be sold off during times of USD strength. I can't see copper breaking $4.00/lb in the current environment, though I guess since I think the USD is going to 85Yen, that is not out of the question. It is my firm belief that whilst USD weakness works for base metals too, these metals will come under pressure due to subdued economic demand.
There are stock-specific factors to consider here though, such as the 60% increase in production by Matrix Metals and similar expansion for CBH Resources. See my stock blogs for those stories. But my focus herein would be on gold-related stocks - if not producers then stocks which are as close as you can be. Since its difficult financing conditions it should be a good project, and hopefullu already have the equity component of the issue since its a poor market for making equity contributions to project finance.

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.
