September 2016


Well, it’s been ages since I last posted an update regarding my rental properties… Truth of the matter is, I just totally hate real estate right now and really see no point in talking about it. For the most part, I’m completely tuned out to the real estate markets, and am simply playing the role [click to continue…]



So, nobody likes to admit to “trying to time the market”, but I will confess to attempting to do just that yesterday morning. As I mentioned in the last article, I had a strong hunch that the Fed would not raise interest rates. Because of that suspicion, I was rather keen on adding some [click to continue…]



Just a quick update for readers this morning — I added to my position in Alexco Resource (AXU) yesterday, just ahead of today’s FOMC meeting, when everyone finds out whether or not we’ll be getting a rate hike this month (my guess is no way, Jose). I picked up [click to continue…]

In an era of Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP) and Negative Interest Rate Policy (NIRP), it’s no wonder that everyone and their grandma is starved for yield these days… Unlike years (decades) past, saving money and putting it in the bank is just extremely unrewarding… The returns are so anemic, that unless you were depositing millions of dollars in principal to your savings account, there’s just no [click to continue…]


Uranium – The Worst Bear Market Ever?

in Uranium


Last year, I thought that the bear market in precious metals was just about as bad as any that I have ever seen in my life. As I have often emphasized in the past, being able to buy up assets for pennies on the dollar should make any investor feel like a kid in the candy store. For certain, in September 2015, I was having the time of my life scooping up [click to continue…]



Over the past few months, I had previously decided to only share my best new ideas with subscribers of this blog, along with my buy/sell orders. However, due to the profound increase of interest in both the precious metals (gold/silver) and clean energy (lithium/graphite/cobalt) space, lately, I’ve had to re-assess my stance on this…

In general, I first made the switch because I wanted to [click to continue…]



These days, I’m not much more than a “one trick pony”. As I have mentioned on numerous occasions, when it comes to investing ideas, there really aren’t that many things out there that I like right now… In the world of mining stocks, I feel like one of the best deals remaining is junior explorer, Birimian Limited (BGS.AX/EEYMF), which is primarily a [click to continue…]


And Now I’m In Tokyo (September 03, 2016)

in Japan, Travel Updates

japan - 1

One of the joys of being in early FI is getting to do basically whatever it is that you want to do. Most recently, my brother, Living Proof and I decided it was a good time to wander around in Tokyo… So, we booked some tickets and flew out to Tokyo. Kind of on a whim, if you will…

But what’s wrong with that?

My brother also most recently retired from his corporate engineering gig (he’s also now in early FI), and had just finished his travel journeys out in the Philippines; we decided to rendezvous in Tokyo (along with our mom since it’s been her dream for the longest time to explore Tokyo) for more adventures.

We all arrived in Shinjuku on September 03. Since then, I’ve been [click to continue…]



When it comes to investing, I’ve always stressed that for whatever asset class you’re getting interested in, before you go out there and start blindly buying just about anything, the best thing that you can do for yourself is to first get properly educated.

With mining, in particular, this industry just operates in an entirely [click to continue…]



When it comes to the markets, readers know full well that I think they are frequently wrong in the short-term. Rather than fixate so much on day-to-day price action, my preferred method of investing and speculating is to focus much more on the macro picture and [click to continue…]
