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 looking at parity with the USD by Jun'08

The AUD has been one of the strongest performing currencies this year, and there is no evidence of that changing soon. In fact there are good reasons why we can expect the AUD (currently at 0.86USD) to reach parity in the next 12 months. This is likely to occur on the back of strong export price settlements next year, which will likely coincide with a rise in the Reserve Bank's rate.
The $A is performing well because of the very favourable terms of trade, as the economy continues to benefit from strong export prices for mineral commodities, as well as an improving outlook for the farm sector. We can expect a breaking in the drought as well as higher global food commodity prices. On the domestic front, production capacity and labour markets are very tight, so there is every likelihood of strong business investment to lift productivity. A number of businesses and state governments have flagged the need for greater infrastructure spending. The long (100 bulk carriers) queues off Newcastle port are a testimony to the shortage of export capacity at Australian coal ports. Housing vacancy rates are also very tight, and whilst interest rate increases can be expected, there are several reasons why a strong AUD will be prompted by positive developments:
1. The stronger AUD will help reduce inflationary pressures - since imported items will be cheaper in AUD terms
2. The stronger will support alot of portfolio investment - particularly in mining and agriculture
3. The high levels of debt will discourage government from lifting interest rates significantly
4. Growth in incomes will fuel a 2nd rally in the property market

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.
