These days, the most common question I get asked from readers and friends is this — “Is now a good time to add shares of gold/silver mining stocks?

Obviously, I have no crystal ball, so my guess is as good as yours… With that said, in general, my own preference is to buy merchandise after it has [click to continue…]

Mining stocks are extremely volatile… They spike up and down routinely, sharply in both directions. For investors to take full advantage of any opportunities, the best thing to do is to buy up the best companies (assets) during the Depths of Despair.

Money is made in the macro, but to pinpoint [click to continue…]

Market timing. It gets such a bad rap… If your experience with investing has been anything remotely similar to mine, I’m sure that you’ll recall the moment when you first stumbled upon the concept of Buy and Hold Forever Investing. Whether through the channels of Dividend Growth Investing (DGI), Index Investing, or even Real Estate Investing (REI), the popular mantra out there (for the longest time) has been that market timing is a fool’s game, and that the only way to really [click to continue…]



Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails from concerned investors who are discouraged by the recent price action of basically every lithium stock that they own… As I mentioned in the last post, just a few short months ago, lithium was being touted as the “next big thing”, or “white gold”, or “white petroleum”. Short-term sentiment reached a fever pitch back in May, when everyone [click to continue…]


Model 3

Just a few short months ago, lithium stocks were the toast of the town. Coinciding nicely with the Tesla Model 3 unveiling, many of these junior companies saw their share prices going absolutely hyperbolic… and life was good! For many investors who got in early, life was real good…

For the late-comers (like myself), I entered the game well after the bulk of the early gains had been extracted. Well, “late” in the sense that I started investing in [click to continue…]

So, as readers of the blog know, I’m a huge fan of networking and connecting with other like-minded individuals. Throughout this blog’s history, it’s safe to say that what I’ve gotten most out of the work I’ve put in are the opportunities and doors that have opened up because of my efforts. Quite frankly, without this blog, I would not have [click to continue…]

In the last post, I shared my long-standing belief with readers that time is our most precious commodity and the one that we should never lose sight of on our quest to early FI. Otherwise, why else are we doing what we’re doing?

But the concept of time is kind of abstract… it means different things to [click to continue…]

When I first started blogging in 2012, there weren’t really that many early FI blogs out there… These days, early FI blogs are a dime-a-dozen, which is a good sign that the movement has gained momentum and that there are more and more people out there striving for it. And when it comes to life goals, what could be more liberating than [click to continue…]


Nida - 1

First off, I gotta say typhoon Nida was a new and unique experience for me. Luckily, not too much damage was done, but I think the typhoon really started picking up around 2:00 AM yesterday, and unfortunately for me, I didn’t get out of bed until around 7:00 AM. When I woke up and checked around the house, everything appeared to be in [click to continue…]

Now that we are clearly out of the brutal bear market in precious metals that had first started to take flight in 2011, a most logical question that investors holding mining shares will have is this — “At what point do I start selling and booking profits?

As readers are fully aware by now, as it pertains to commodities (particularly mining stocks), my own belief is that you never, ever, ever make the mistake of [click to continue…]
