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.

Russian politics matured considerably in the 1990s. Following the election of President Putin, the Russian leadership has come to terms with the need to countenance public opinion. Putin released this after a few mishandlings of issues, eg. The Checheyan terrorist attacks, the failed rescue of naval personnel from a nuclear submarine.
The Russian government continues to oppose US foreign intervention (often with China) in an attempt to limit its influence in the Asian region.
Russia is divided between those with money and those without. Alot of those without money drink excessively or resort to crime. Youth delinquency is a major issue as social problems escalate. The nationalist movement in the country is strong - particularly among naive youth attracted into the movement. Corruption is rife. On the positive side, Russia has a credible education system and the importance of education is widely recognised.
In 2004, the Russian economy grew by 7.1% primarily as a result of strong commodity exports, the most important of which is oil. Urban growth was much stronger in St Petersburg, which recorded growth of 14% - establishing itself as a centre of future economic development.
The biggest investors in Russia to date have been the Europeans & US, with Japan trailing because of security concerns and existing tensions between the countries over Russian annexation of Japan’s northern islands in the closing days of WWII. Some Japanese companies already have a big presence – with Toyota the best selling foreign car company. Toyota will also open a car plant in Dec’07. Japanese companies have invested just $1 billion to date.
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.

MY ADVICE is (i) look at a range of market indices and decide upon what level of correction would give you the justification you need to get in & out of the market. It might be a 5-10% retracement or a break of trend. (ii) Diversify if you dont have an intimate knowledge of the company or management. More than 30% in one company is aggressive.
