“Timon why don't you be a man and risk 10% per trade?”
“I'm not going to get rich with risking 2% of my portfolio per trade, I'm sticking to 10%”.

Early in the week, I was waiting for a trade to line up. For the entire day, nothing lined up.
There was a moment where I felt trigger happy. I just wanted to take a trade for the sake of taking a trade.
I didn't have a plan for the trade, I just had this urge. You can say I felt a gambling mentality moment.
But because I've been in the market long enough to know better, I saved myself f... ››› more

Gold is a funny creature.
When the stock markets perform well, you'll see gold sleeping.
When the economy is stable, the world at peace and there is nothing troubling in the media - it's like gold doesn't exist.
And what I mean by this is that, gold goes sideways.
But right now, as global turmoil rises, North Korea threatens a nuclear war, economies crumble as global debt accelerates a... ››› more
Question by Limo Krafe:
Timon, you have no idea how depressed I am this past month.

About 10 years ago, I gave up with investing. The returns were just too slow for my liking.
And so, trading took over a big portion of my life.
Now as you know by now I'm a trader by heart. But I also understand that I need to diversify my money for the future. Why? Well, it's better to grow my retirement kitty with multiple streams of income, rather than with just one or two.
With the st... ››› more

I love my Rugby…
I truly do.
However, in saying that, I cannot seem to find any value in betting on the final outcome of the game.
This doesn't mean I have given up on betting on one of my favourite sports, it just means I have to look elsewhere to find value.
In doing so I have found just that.
Let me explain…
