The Junior Miners on The Toronto Exchange is a Place to Look Around


Robert Williams: Jim, talk about another hated market. The junior miners on the Toronto exchange are down as much as 80%. Might this market also represent an opportunity?

Jim Rogers : Well, it’s a place to be looking around. I am not buying precious metals at the moment. I’d rather buy base metals, actually, at the moment than precious metals. But it’s – if you can find ones that have good management with good reserves, good assets, and aren’t over-leveraged, I’m sure there are gonna be great opportunities there. I’m not buying precious metals yet. But, sure, anything like that that’s down 80% – it’s not going to go away. You know there are gonna be great pickings there if you can figure out which ones.

Russia : The most hated Market in the world except for Argentina



Jim Rogers: Yeah. Obviously, the oil market drop is not good for Russia – no question about that – and it’s making the ruble go down. But, no, I see this as an opportunity. Unfortunately, I’m not very good at timing, so I don’t know when the opportunity will be.

Oil prices are not gonna stay down forever, I suspect. And Russia will rebound with oil or when they get their own act together. I mean, they’ll have to – if oil stays down at $60, they’ll have to get their act together and reorganize. But they’ve got enough resources. It’s a vastly, vastly rich country as far as resources are concerned. And it’s a very, very cheap market. I think it’s selling at half of book value right now. That’s not an expensive market.

It’s perhaps the most hated market in the world except for Argentina, I guess. And – well, not even that. Argentina’s not as hated, ’cause people are trying to raise money to invest in Argentina. So I guess Russia must be the most hated market in the world, which normally is an opportunity, Bob – normally. I mean, I emphasize normally. Who knows where the bottom is? I don’t.

Global Investors happy about Indian Stock & Bond Markets





Are you seeing signs of global investors losing patience with India?

Jim Rogers : The current mood of global investors about Indian stock and bond markets is that they are happy. They are confident about India as there is a lot of money floating around. It's the first time in world history that all major central banks of the world are printing lots of money. Japan, Europe, Great Britain, the US are printing money, and that has never happened before, thus there is a huge amount of liquidity. A lot of things are going around the global stock markets, including India. That's why the mood is wonderful among foreign investors. But, one should remember that it's all artificial and cannot last for long. The next time we are going to have an economic problem in the world, it's going to be much worse because there is artificial money floating around, the debt levels of countries are rising while central banks are also managing much more debt. There is going to be much more pain for all of us in the end if artificial money keeps floating like this.

That same year he joined Arnold S. Bleichroeder, where he met George Soros, and together founded the Quantum Fund. This has opened a new era of global macrotrading and inspired numerous imitations and spin-offs. In the book "Money Masters of Our Time," Jim Rogers writes about that time "the most important thing in my life was work. I did not do anything until I had completed my work." To emphasize this professional ethic , it is good to remember that he did not made any holiday for ten years. In 1980, Jim Rogers has decided to "retire" at 37 years. Since then he has spent much of his time traveling and supporting the causes of philanthropic and taking on many high profile roles in the media. However, he continues to be an active investor and media commentator
