  • Don't be a victim of the Monte Carlo fallacy

After the 15th black, gamblers from all over the casino started to pile on to red, assuming the chances of yet another black was out of the question.

  • JSE break-out after more than three years of trading sideways?
    The JSE's rally from late June accounts for all the growth we've seen this year. The bullish tone is threatening a break above the trading range which has confined the market for more than three years. As in common at this stage, small caps and midcaps have lagged significantly and we expect them to play catch up. Mid-caps to consider include: MicroMega, Santova, AdvTech and AECI. **... ››› more

  • Emerging Markets given a boost by Jackson Hole - TWO to buy
    While everyone was looking for clues as to the future of easy monetary policy, both Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi kept mum at Jackson Hole.

This has seen the Rand trade below R13 to the USD, the strongest level for August and the Euro trade at its strongest level against the USD in 30 months. CPI c... ››› more

    The major news is today's GDP growth figure for the 2nd quarter. The print should come out at 2.6% and signal a short-lived recession. The Rand's strength was given a boost after poor jobs numbers out from the US on Friday, but has started consolidating around R12.95. We believe clients should use the current strength to allocate an appropriate portion of assets to offshore markets. - Contact ... ››› more

    By now I am sure most of you have heard about Black Swan events. Invented by Nassim Taleb, a black swan event is an unpredictable event that makes a big impact. The 2008 crash is one example.
