Losing is inevitable and it will happen to you eventually.
It's part and parcel when it comes to sports betting. However, what might look like a losing streak to you now, will only be a blip in the long run.
And while it might be frustrating to you now, I want to show you five things I do to get through a losing streak.
Let me explain…

Q. Which broker can I trade offshore CFDs and do I need a lot of money?
A. Just two years ago, you needed around $2,500 (R34,000) to open and trade offshore accounts.
Fortunately for you, those days are long gone.
We understand that finances are tight nowadays. And with the ever increasing costs of transport, food and living expenses, we've tracked down the most affordable offshore broker... ››› Read more
During its December conference the ANC vowed that, it would expropriate land and put it in the hands of the people.
The news is full of headlines like:
ANC NEC wants land expropriation 'urgently'
The ANC is making false promises of land expropriation
#Ramaphosa says ruling party is committed to land expropriation

Have you ever heard of ‘GARP' investing?
No, I didn't make it up.
It's actually a four decade-old investment strategy popularised by one of the most successful fund managers to ever live - Peter Lynch.
Peter Lynch used ‘Growth at Reasonable Prices (GARP)' investing to identify stocks with both value and growth qualities. He'd buy companies that demonstrated consistent earnings gr... ››› Read more
If there's no cash in a business, it's dead. The most recent spectacular crash in Steinhoff shares is proof of that.
It is no different for property.
If your property doesn't generate a positive cash flow - the investment is dead in the water.
Choosing to lose money isn't a valid investment strategy
It's all too often that I hear investors say “I'm not making money on the property ... ››› Read more

When Cyril Ramaphosa managed to defeat Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and the Jacob Zuma faction for the position of ANC president, the rand went crazy.
It moved stronger by more than 10% versus the US dollar and was the world's best performing currency over the last month.
I do not argue the relief felt after the Ramaphosa win is unwarranted.
I will however say that this one change wi... ››› Read more
It's a new year and, as customary, I'm sharing a couple of insights that I believe will shape the stock market, our economy, and the world we see around us every day.

The first one being, politics, drove the South African economy, investor sentiment and our currency.
The second was probably a symptom of the first. Because politics dominated ever... ››› Read more
The market and currency have responded positively to the appointment of Cyril as President of the ANC.
We've seen the rand on the longest weekly winning streak since 2002, as foreign investors that were sitting on the sidelines start deploying capital in to SA stocks. As mentioned late last year, the stocks on their shopping list are SA focused companies with earnings mostly generated locally.... ››› Read more
In the beginning of November 2017, the markets had been giving traders a rough ride. The All Share Index continued to move sideways while we were making profits.
And when I looked at the market, I saw Reinet had found support at its previous high of R29.12.
