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.

The AUD play with a Japanese property twist

The AUD-JPY is not a currency I have been giving much attention to of late because my focus has been on the commodities (AUD-USD) rather than property. Though since I have an interest in Japanese (foreclosed) property, I was interested to look at the implications for the property market....which is offering yields of 12-13%.
We can see from the chart that the AUD might be strong against the USD, but against the Yen, the AUD has actually been a bit lacklustre. That is about to change. The Japanese yen is going to come under a bit of pressure as the govt there debases its currency. You can expect this to lead to a strong AUD against the yen. In fact I am expecting the AUD to rise to the previous high of Y107. This is a good long term currency trade, as you will never earn more spread interest than on this trade. With the unemployment rate 5.1% in Australia, there is actually scope for more rate increases as well. Stimulus in the Eurozone and Japan can only help Australian commodities demand.
The implication is that there is a good opportunity to trade AUD-JPY and then use your profits to buy a holiday house in Japan. Don't forget to get your Japan Rail Pass! God, I should be selling the things...I'd told so many people about them. I love trains. :) I take GPS coordinates for every station I stop at. That's right...I don't have a life. Glad you could join me though.

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.
