2018's rocky first quarter provides plenty buying opportunities
Global markets typically have a good run in April before the “Sell in May and Go Away” period, but the spike in volatility in February and March has shaken investors. With global markets down year to date, we should see investors buy this dip and a potential run up in April that will make up for 2018's rocky first quarter.

The below graph shows the S&P 500's average monthly return for the past 10 years at 2.2%. April saw positive returns nine years out of 10.

With the All Share Index falling to a strong support level, we believe buying into the market at these levels will reward investors.

Over the long term, buying the dips consistently, rewards investors.

How to generate a R700,000 windfall starting with R10,000 using the oldest wealth trick in the world
 
This wealth secret is the most powerful force in finance. It’s the force behind almost every fortune. The brilliant financial writer of the Dow Theory Letters, Richard Russell, called it “The Royal Road to Riches.” And it’s been mathematically proven time and time again as the #1 ’how to get rich quick’ trick in the modern world.
 
Even Einstein joked that it is “the most powerful force in the universe.”
 
And in my brand new book, The Little Book of Big Income – 7 Filthy Secrets to Get Rich Quick, I’ll show you how to use it to turn R10,000 into more than R700,000.
 
But you must act fast…

Last week’s movers and shakers… 
 
 

One to Buy
 
Short term Trade on the ALSI40 Future
 
The ALSI future has bounced a few times from the 48700-support level since last year August. We expect to see buyers continue to defend this level and a strong bounce materialise from here.
 
We could see an 8% bounce over the next few weeks if the market isn’t dealt any bigger blows. We are targeting the 200-day moving average (50747) on this trade and will re-assess once reached.
                                               
Long the ALSI at 49,200, stop-loss at 48599 and target 50,699
 
One to Sell
 
Mr Price bumping against too much resistance
 
Mr Price has had a good run since late October last year, with the share price rallying from the R170 level to above R290.
 
The share currently trades on a PE of 30.9 and its standard deviation is signalling over bought at 1.8 times the normal variance.
 
The share price appears to be pricing in all the good news for 2018 already and selling at these levels would bank decent gains on open positions and provide capital to enter at more realistic prices.
 
Traders can short a CFD or future on the share above R290 with a stop-loss at R301.50 and a target price of 272.75
