Ticker Trax’s Thom Calandra explains why investors should take notice of iron ore & Brazil.

This as Marc Davis of BNWnews.ca describes how 'Peak Phosphate' could spell the end of cheap food.

Top Bullboards post: “This all makes perfect sense to me.  If you read the FS they clearly stated they expect funding to be in place in the next couple of months, and they also expected EPA approval soon.  The closer this comes to an operating mine the more attention this company gets...  It's all good.  10 million shares trading says something is brewing big time and people want in. I don't think they would let this company go for $5-$6/share otherwise it would have been done already.... This company is going all the way and it's clear the way the press releases are progressing. On top of this Potash Corp announced a $75/st increase in their potash price for North America.  The market for potash is heating up and we are going to see a good run here IMHO.  If you look at all JR's and large Ag companies such as POT, MOS, AGU, they are all up big time today.  The market likes what they see and the market is ripe for a JR to either sell out or form a JV with off take partners. The global consumption is growing 2 million tons per year and Potash 1 is perfectly aligned to supply this demand. Please make sure you conduct DD, but my any Ag stock IMHO is going to do well over the next 12-24 months providing the world doesn't collapse again.” From Fertiman on the Potash One (TSX: T.KCL, Stock Forum) board.

Top Bullboard: BioExx Specialty Proteins (TSX: T.BXI, Stock Forum) received the second-most reads and posts.

Top blog: LexLuthor2 claims this uranium junior’s stock price is trading at very attractive levels in the Lex Corp blog.

The S&P/TSX composite index finished up 21.1 points at 12,684.68, while the Canadian dollar lost 0.37 of a cent to 97.64 cents US.

RIM stock jumped 6.2 per cent on top of a five per cent run-up yesterday that followed the launch of an Adobe software developer kit that can create applications for its PlayBook tablet. The demonstration put to rest worries that RIM would delay the product until the middle of next year.
