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.

Latest gold price outlook - Oct 2008

This is my latest revised price forecast for the gold price in $US terms based on the historically important Dow-gold price ratio. This index has a history extending back 110 years, and it shows a nice correlation with the Dow Jones Index.




There is of course a reason why the gold price has an inverse correlation with the Dow Jones. Gold is a real asset, and the Dow Jones is an index of real assets (i.e. companies) measures in terms of paper currency. The price of those assets in terms of paper depends ultimately on how much paper is created to support nominal asset prices. Asset prices are currently falling. I believe that the Dow Jones will find support aroung 7500 points, from which point it is likely to recover. Looking at the chart, its apparent that the Dow-gold ratio is repeating a cycle that occurred in the 1920s, the 1960s and now the 2000s. On the last 2 occasions, periods of excess money creating were followed by events which saw the Dow-gold price ratio fall to a value of 4. Assuming that the Dow finds support at 7500, we are looking at a gold price of $1875/oz. But of course the USD will have little value in future, so expect real assets like the Dow index to far exceed these values in USD terms. Its not so much that these asset prices are going down, but that the USD is going to be debased out of existence. The implication is that the Dow and gold price could go far higher still.
This story looks like a conspiracy theory, but on reflection it makes a lot of sense. The naive might believe that this market crisis was sudden and unexpected, but if you had been reading about the role of gold and money in the economy for the last decade, you would know that we have been looking at a crisis for some time. I learned this about a decade ago, though it took me some time to appreciate what would ultimately cause the crisis. If a great many investors knew, you can be sure the US government knows. Afterall they wanted to benefit from it. It might actually be more sordid than you think. Its possible than the US government intentionally borrowed and funded the US deficit with debasing USD with the intent of defaulting or paying them back in worthless paper. Financially cunning to be sure, but not the best policy in global diplomacy. Maybe the US government wants a war with China before they get to powerful. Anyway read up on this claim that the USA is already minting a new USD. To my mind China is involved in this policy because it has benefited from 2 decades of unprecedented industrial expansion. It has brought them closer to the USA, not further apart. Its 2 fascist states looking themselves in the mirror. See http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1954933468700958565&hl=es. The story seems far-fetched, but consider that if you were going to debase a current (USD) as the government has been doing, then you would have a plan for overcoming the problem. It makes you wonder why George didn't have a plan for Osama or Katrina. Maybe those issues were not the real issues. When it comes to politics, you have to question everything. These smart-arses really twist perceptions. Its enough to make one turn to conspiracy theories for ones daily news.

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.
