Thanks for the links and the advice. I have ordered a book "Technical Analysis 
Explained" which was recommended by Phaedrus, hopefully this will arrive 
soon. As for the fundamentals, well I know what fundamental analysis is, but 
I think I am still unsure how to progress. Basically I can look at all the 
company information I want, look over the financial statements which I barely 
understand, and scan through the news but I still have a hard time grasping 
how to do this properly. Especially when trying to identify value stocks 
because by definition a value stock is one that is performing badly or is out 
of favour with the market. I find it pretty impossible to see why it would be 
a good value investment when the data I am looking at all looks grim.

What is a hedge all about? Is this some sort of debt? Does the fact that it is 
an open pit mine score a "+" for the fundamentals of this stock?

Is this not true for the rest of New Guinea? Since it is such a small place I 
would imagine any political unrest to be distributed across the entire area. 
Do these sorts of things really influence the companies share price?
