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.

ANZ Bank - approaching $10 support level

Australian & New Zealand Banking Corporation (ANZ) is under stress as it approaches its $10 support level. The Australian banking sector is in good condition I would think, so this would strike me as a good base from which to buy. ANZ does have greater exposure to NZ, but the other banks are similarly exposed. Commonwealth Bank owns Auckland Savings Bank (ASB) and Westpac also has a subsidiary here. ANZ has been the leading Australian bank in the Asian market.
ANZ has fallen from over $30 to almost $10. That strikes me as a decent correction even if the banking sector is not going to be one of the best performing in the next few years. One needs to remember that the banks have a solid position in wealth management, and their control of credit and forex is unassailable thanks to government favours (barriers to entry). People will say that there are no barriers to entry, but the reality is that huge amounts of money would be required to duplicate the position of the major banks. Interestingly a number of Australian financial institutions are interested in becoming banks, so we might just see that reality. I would love to see an online bank like Shinsei Bank in Japan. But you really want a bank that can perform all the tricks. Its not enough to offer cheap services, you want a full range of services. eg. Stock broking. Some existing banks have relationships with third party brokers, etc, but these relationships are too arms-length to effectively integrate services. B
uy at $10, look for exit before $15. No buy & hold in this climate. We should be traders for the next few years, with the exception of gold & silver, where we can take longer term positions.

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. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
