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 US & Chinese equity market outlook for late 2015 into 2016

In my last post on 18th August 2015 I forecast that the US and China were destined to enter recession. The reason for saying so is the subject of this article, however it needs to be acknowledged that the recession is destined to be 'short-lived', or simply a 'crisis of confidence'. There is no reason to expect mass employment, or foreclosures. The problem will simply be an absence of spending and falling asset prices. The reason for the falling prices will simply be:

  1. The inability of the Fed to convince the investing public that there is destined to be a recovery soon
  2. The fact that the market thinks asset prices are over-priced
  3. The difficulty of resorting to more stimulus at this time - again - given that the first stimulus didn't fix what ails the economy
  4. The fact the equity/property boom have been long-winded - worthy of a break
Having wrote that article, the US and Chinese markets collapsed. Now we are at a point where the Chinese and US markets are about to turn - the question is - which way? The fact is that there is hardly any recognition that the US is at a weak point. US business inventories are weak, confidence is poor. No one is spending money, and Obama wants to look good. Are we going to see any big spending initiatives at this point? I don't think so. He cannot serve another term, so we can expect that it could only be a new president who would do that. We can therefore expect confidence to be poor until the middle of next year. That's effectively at least a short 9-month recession. Mind you, given the US people appear set to elect a maverick, then you might conclude that is reason for more investor 'unease'. It is nevertheless good to see. It is however destabilising. 

Look at this chart - this is what the Chinese market is about to do - fall to 2500 points. I show in the first chart that 2500pts is support. This is not a crisis market, so its not going to 2000pts in my opinion. You can see the flag structure in the 2nd chart below. 

The US market however is the more important market. It is overpriced because of the very low prevailing interest rates. Interest rates are not going to rise; asset prices are going to fall, and that will scare some people, having fallen already. The US Dow Jones is going to 14,000 pts, as you can see in the following graphic.

As you can see the market is already half way to its support level of 14,000pts. In fact, I think it will find more support at 15,000pts, and finally at 14,000pts. We can probably count on a Xmas rally, and then a March-May 2016 sell-off as the election looms in November 2016. The implication is that after the recovery off the 14,000pt support, 2016 is going to be a very flat year for equities. Its hard to say with 2017 given that it will depend on the capacity of the leader to build a consensus.

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.

The Philippines property market remains one of the strongest in Asia thanks to rising incomes, rising population and rapid rates of urbanisation. The administrative reforms of the Arroyo government have given way to improved administration under Aquino. ASEAN countries can be expected to achieve even greater price gains than Western markets, demonstrating that this super cycle is far from over.

Investment Strategy

If you are investing for the long term, you still need an investment strategy. Dont be fooled by the rhetoric of fund managers. The reason they advise you to 'buy & hold' is because they dont want to compete with you in sell-offs. Markets and industrial sectors are cyclical, so they demand trading to get the best returns. Fund managers actually cant hope to match the performance of small investors (if you are half good) because they have to manage huge amounts of funds and charge you a fee besides.
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.
