Global Mining Investing $69.95, 2 Volume e-Book Set.
Author, Andrew Sheldon

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.

Trading systems - Are they any good?

Several years ago I looked at trading systems. For the uninitiated, trading systems or so-called 'black box' solutions are software packages that include algorithms to analyse market trends with the intent of spitting out stock recommendations. Most such systems use daily end-of-day
trading data from the stock exchange to give you those signals. They might even give you the tools to help manage your portfolio.
In fairness, these tools are no different from the tools that traders use, though I would make the following points:
1. Such indicators are typically lagging indicators - they tend to get you in & out of the security too late.
2. They drop the context - you might think that noise, but it might be pertinent info
3. These systems were developed in the previous boom. They have not really been tested over bear markets
4. Unless you are trading short term, they are likely to be unhelpful over the next 5 years, since this will be a period of flat earnings - that is a succession of falls and rallies, but flat overall.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2011 -2012 - Buy this 4th edition report!

Are you aware that you can buy a house & lot in Japan for as little as $10,000. Surprising but true! Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for auction 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. Some property is in rural areas subject to depopulation, but there are plenty of properties in the cities too. 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 200-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.
