  • Is Russia using a downed passenger plane as a distraction tactic to position itself for war?
  • The tensions between the Ukraine and Russia have been in the media for months now. But it appears things are slowly escalating. And the battle lines between East and West are becoming ever clearer. In fact, Tony Blinken, US Deputy National Security Advisor has said he believes the Russians have used the downed Air Malaysia passenger plane that was shot down as a distraction tactic. Time reported him as saying, while the world media has been focusing on the crash and rebels around the crash site; Russia has been moving troops and weaponry into and along the Ukraine's border. Now there's no question… Tensions are building in the region. But tensions are also building across the globe. You see, because of Historic conflicts and differences, the West (Europe and the US) is very quick to see Russia in a bad light. And so far, the Western nations are assuming the worst when it comes to Russia. They claim Russia is supplying and driving the unrest in the Ukraine - Perhaps with the goal of claiming the country for itself. But this isn't just some interesting real life soap opera that you can watch unfold on TV each night. This conflict is real and it has real effects for you as an investor. In fact, how you position your investments in response to this could be the difference between disappointing losses and great profits.... ››› more

  • This shocking new nationalisation announcement could be the final nail in the coffin for South African mining…

    Shale Gas could've been the next big boom sector in South Africa. The Karoo is the fifth largest gas field in the world, and local as well as international companies are interested in developing it. After all, according to estimates, shale gas extraction from the Karoo will lead to 9% GDP growth for South Africa! And just imagine the possibility of extracting cheap shale gas and using it in power plants (no wet coal problems!)... Or if Sasol used the gas in its Gas-to-liquids process, South Africa would become independent of international oil! But a new law that has just been passed could change all of this. This shocking law makes mine nationalisation a government policy and it could stop the future of fracking right in its tracks! ››› more
