Have benefited with the increase in iron ore spot prices. The latest pullback has hurt the base metal producers. This is a good opportunity to gain exposure in this space.

Brazilian mining company, largest iron ore producer globally. Making new highs and participating in the current commodity boom. Highly valued at these levels so consider taking some money off the table. Longer term, these companies are in the right sector at the right time and have great assets.

Top Short Pairs trade with Consolidated Thompson Iron Mines (CLM-T). Trading at more than 10X next year's cash flow and 15%-20% of revenues are from nickel that he doesn't like. Nickel is currently around $8.50 and expects a ceiling of $10-$11.

Buying out of the money Calls for Jan/10 and Selling Calls for the front month either at or in the money? A Calendar Spread by buying a longer-term option and selling a short-term option. Can give you the advantage of time value decay in the option premium. Not a bad strategy and has a pretty high success rate.

Likes basic materials and particularly metals. Stocks he owns bottomed Oct/Nov/Dec well before the indices. Historically these are where smart money gets invested. Thinks ore prices will continue to strengthen.

Cut their Japan-bound iron ore price by 28%. This was inevitable. Once you start cutting prices, you have to have a real recovery before you get any upward traction again.
