Q: "What buy instruction do I give to the broker? This is the first time I'm taking a trade I don't want to confuse the broker or myself" - W
A: I remember the first time I wanted to buy a share on the JSE in 2003, many years ago. The problem was…
I had no clue what to do or what to say to my broker.
Well, if you're a first time trader and you're not sure what to say to your broker, the... ››› more
If you've been reading some of my articles in Trading Tips and MoneyMorning, you'll probably know I'm quite a stubborn trader.
Stubborn with the proven strategy and money management rules I've followed for the last 12 years. Stubborn with listening to the media and opinions of others.
And stubborn with the number of shares I watch on a daily basis.
In fact, I only look at 23 shares to tra... ››› more
One of my ongoing quests in life, is to find the scams that are losing traders and investors all their money.
At least once a week, I Google this exact phrase.
“How to get rich quick with trading?"
You'll be surprised at the number of unregistered companies and individuals there are, trying to swindle people's hard earned money.
But the scam I want to talk to you about today is the B... ››› more
We have lost yet another legend.
Not only was Muhammad Ali a former Olympic gold medallist and first fighter to win the world heavyweight title three times, he was also an inspiring, controversial and outspoken figure for life and for racial pride.
Sure, sometimes he did sound a bit overconfident and cocky. But that's what made him the success he was.
One of my hobbies in life is to fo... ››› more

The JSE's performance over the last seven days has been dismal to say the least. It's down 3.22% and nobody seems to know when it's going to stop.
Every major sector on the JSE has decreased taking the shares down with it.
Financials - Down 1.53%
Resources - Decreased 1.79%
Industrials - Fell 1.12%
Gold mining - Tanked 4.12%
But despite this poor performance, there are opportunities... ››› more
Over the last two months we've seen the gold price trickle from its low at $1,053 to $1,292 an ounce.
South African investors worldwide are piling into gold stocks.
This is a big problem according to my analysis.
You see, South Africa might have been the world's biggest gold producer, but not anymore!
In 1970, South Africa produced over 67.7% of the world's gold production.
But now it... ››› more

Last week, we published the kind of recommendation I prefer not to put into the public domain.
• First, it was a short-recommendation.
• Second it was a short-recommendation on an established, stable and, what most people would consider, blue-chip company.
• Third, it used a fairly advanced trading instrument that's often misunderstood by the general public.
But, in spite of these ... ››› more

Losing money when you trade, is inevitable. It's impossible to always predict with certainty what the Forex market will do. Especially when you're dealing with a $5.3 trillion a day industry. But what if I told you that if you know how to recognise these three factors, you can control the market turbulence. Let's get to it. Factor #1: Most Forex traders ignore unpredictable events, which can shake... ››› more
Dear Trading Tips reader,
Casinos are entertainment centres unlike any other.
The cost of admission is not fixed and it looks to prey on the weak minded, taking them for everything they have.
Like you're lured into a trap, casinos employ simple tactics to keep you longer and spending more.
The thing is though, you could fall for these same traps when you're caught up in the excitement ... ››› more
When you first open your trading account, you'll see different currencies with numbers and colours flashing before your eyes. It's like being at a casino, I tell you. It can be quite overwhelming at first, trying to focus on what to do next with your Forex trades. So today I want to share with you one of the most important lessons I learned early on in my career. And that is a certain type of curr... ››› more
Ask any South African. “Where do you think the rand is going next” You'll probably hear answers like I've been hearing, “The rand is going down the drain”, “going to hell, “going to S#^t” But not me! Today I'm going against 99% of what South Africans say, as I expect the rand to go up from here.
Read on to see why…
I haven’t made a wrong prediction yet!

Back in 2003, I had such ridiculous expectations when I first started out trading. I thought I could turn R30,000 into R60,000 rand in just one month. I was at a stage in my life where ego controlled my trading decisions. Because I had this incredible power to trade on the stock market, I felt like a trading emperor. I imagined I never had to work another day in my life! But in the first two years... ››› more
