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 up $17/oz to $931/oz

The recent sell-off of gold highlights the volatility of the commodities sector. Investors should keep this in mind when they trade leverage investment types. They should also not avoid such risks, rather they should manage them. Out of such calamity comes great opportunities. Such falls tend to leave trepidation in the minds of investors, but actually these are often the best entry points, particularly for your leveraged investments. Of course we need to look for support indicators.
There is no question in my mind that this was a profit-taking sell-off. I have seen arguments made that the gold sell-off was caused by the liquidation of the gold position of Bear Stearns. I think that is a pack of nonsense. An attempt by some analyst to have a 'profound thought' to get published. Why? Because the smoke has yet settle on the Bear Stearns case. You could argue that the sell off was precipitated by a market awareness that Bear Stearns had long exposure to gold. Regardless I dont think JP MorganChase would be in a hurry to liquidate this holding. Its one of the best asset classes to hold.
The gold price has fallen through the $950/oz support that I saw as support, so it now looks like holding a lower support. Regardless that just makes this a better buying opportunity. I retain my belief that gold is going over $US2,000/oz. In the coming week I will update my model for the gold price outlook.
You might ask what could actually cause the gold price to fall back to the next support at $US850/oz. I suggest talk of central banks selling off their gold reserves. I dont think that is likely since the international monetary system is likely to come under scrutiny in future years and central banks will not want to be holding an empty draw. Another factor might be a decision by the Fed to aggressively raise interest rates based on an inflationary outlook. Again I think recent action and statements by the Fed dont support that possibility. It is my belief in fact that if a bank like Bear Stearns is going to fail, gold is more likely to go up because monetary assets are going up, and the bank fails because they are short on gold, not long. One would have to conclude that Bear Stearns failed inspite of their gold holdings, not because of them.

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.
