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 outlook in question

The gold price is holding reasonably well at the moment. The metal found support at $890/oz. I do however believe that there is the prospect of gold falling back to $$700-750/oz, though by no means is it probable.
The positive for gold is the extent to which central banks are relying on fiat currency to support their economies. One could be forgiven for thinking that we are over the bad news, but in fact the USA is entering a period of ARM re-sets. Clearly low interest rates will help people survive this period. Another factor likely to support commodity countries like Australia, Canada, is the prospect of China buying up commodities. This of course will make any recession shallower, but it will also make it longer. One would want to retain some exposure to gold, though at this point I would only make that exposure emerging stocks with resource upside, rather than the gold producers trading as a yield proposition. For metal traders, I'd be looking for confirmation of trend before I enter the market, as there is grounds for some rapid moves.
We might yet see gold test its previous high of $990/oz, though I see more consolidation for now, with the prospect of a fall back to $750/oz. I would rank the swine flu as an issue, though of course its hard to say whether this will evolve into something more serious. It would seem inevitable that there will be a breakout as long as developing countries have dodgy animal husbandry standards. A major pandemic would spell a much deeper recession, and a run on banks. I think this would be a negative for gold because its not inflationary, but just a crisis of confidence which will undermine consumer spending. It will briefly cause the market to spike as people buy more food, and we might see some evidence of that in the current quarter. A pandemic is more an issue of perceptions since we need only hide in our houses for a week. But will we all be so compliant and organised. It remains to be seen if this will be a momumental blunder.

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.
