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.

Misconceptions - Risk vs Return
A mining analyst confronts a much smaller risk than a novice investor. A disciplined analyst has a far better understanding than an analyst whom cuts corners. An investor who has a critical mind has a better likelihood of success (or less risk) than an investor who just accepts what they have read. An investor who listens to others opinions before acting on his own, an investor who researches his stocks, and similar companies has a better risk-reward profile than an investor who doesn't. An investor who is emotion or risk-averse is likely to act on distorted thinking, and will perform worse than a trader who systematises their trades, thus acting in a mechanistic fashion.
The implication is that there is a great deal that you could be doing to reduxe your risk exposure in the market apart from listening to others when they say its too risky. In fact some of the best trades are when people are telling you to stay out of the market.

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.
