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.

Outlook for the AUD-USD - support is in sight?

The AUD has been absolutely hit in the last few months, falling from a high of $US0.985, just short of parity to $US0.6995 in recent days. The currency has since recovered to 0.714. The question is - Is this the bottom? The market talk is that the Australian government, having lead the central bank cuts with 1%, might be looking at another 1% in future. In fact the ECB and Fed are taking the same direction. As long as asset prices are falling there is no possibility of stimulus. The flipside of that is that interest rates are ineffective as a basis for stimulating the economy. if asset prices are falling because people buy generally when they think prices are going to rise. Asset prices will keep falling for as long as people think they are overpriced. The market talk is that property prices need to fall another 25% in Western markets.
The argument is - Is the carry trade over? No, not for years yet I suspect. Until the Japanese government decides to adopt some fiscal courage there is no possibility of the Japanese central bank raising rates. The unwinding of the carry trade has brought the AUD down, but watch as people jump back on board that boat. This is why the currency is so volatile. Traders are going to trade it back up again.
The next question is - What is the bottom for the AUD? The AUD did hit a support at 0.704 and recover, though I would not be surprised to see it test $0.678 in the next two days. Certainly your trades should reflect that possibility. This is a sweet opportunity to buy AUD. The Australian economy is among the most healthy.

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.
