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.

China seeks to use gold as money

Years ago I had an argument with my dad over the role of gold. He saw the fall of gold in the 1990s to $260/oz, and concluded that the problem with gold is 'it no longer has any uses'. What's it used for? I long maintained that it was real money, that it was nobodies obligation. This belief stemmed from my studies at the time on the history of gold. Gold was not somebody's line of credit. It was tangible, it was real, as opposed to a promissory note from the government.
In recent trading gold jumped $45/oz to $1043/oz on news that the Chinese government was proposing to use gold to pay for oil.
According to the Independent Newspaper "The greenback's declining value has prompted the Chinese, French, Russian and Japanese governments to hold secret meetings with the Middle East's major oil producers to develop a new pricing system for barrels of oil".
The significance of this of course is that gold is going to be held by commodity traders rather than USD because traders fear losing money whilst they negotiate market positions. You can imagine the negative impact on traders holding USD as the price falls. Of course in the long term, it matters little. If the USD falls, then the oil producers will simply raise the price of oil to compensate for the diminishing price of oil in USD terms.

In case your wondering, my father still does not hold any gold stocks. There is just no convincing him. I told him there would be a financial collapse too. I reiterated my arguments every time I saw him for 8 years....it took me 30 minutes to get him to acknowledge the fact. Is there hope for gold? I hope he has a strong heart. :)
Of course all precious metals will benefit, but this is particularly good for gold and silver because they are the most liquid commodities, and demand for gold is particularly less impacted by negative industrial demand. But I caution you - the speculative demand for these metals will eclipse the industrial demand. This is of course just the start of things to come.

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.
