Just an amateur here on the "playground of the big boys". Retired professor and very interested in the different commodities suited for the future, f.i. Tungsten, Molybdenum, Lithium, Manganese, Nickel, Vanadium, Graphite and many others. Had the chance to get into the REE's - in 2009 - before most of the others, now I focus on the Graphite players in Canada as well as in Sweden. Most of the time I play it "Long" on TSX, OTC and AMEX. My largests investements are in Allmonty, Flinders, and Focus, Grtz from Antwerp ( Be ) M.
