  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
  • 2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • For the first time in 14 years, the Euro could be weaker than the US Dollar
  • What you're about to read will shock you… 1999 - The Euro came into existence in January which was the goal of the European Union and its predecessors since the 1960s. Initially there was a negative reaction as the Euro fell below parity (1:1) with the US Dollar for the first time.

  • Is the Proverbial Christmas Market Rally likely to happen this year?
  • In the past 24 months the JSE All share index has been unable to lift itself out of its sideways channel. In the last two years it only managed to deliver a 1% move for investors.

  • The 6th major asset bubble crash is coming in 2017…
  • You have to go back more than 400 years where the first major “asset bubble” happened. Between November 1636 and May 1637, tulip prices soared 20-fold, before plunging 99%.

Shares from UK-based South Sea company surged more than eight-fold from £128 to £1,050, before collapsing... ››› more

  • For contrarian investors only…
  • On most days, you read the financial news and more than likely, you'll read negative headlines. Maybe it's a new crisis in the Eurozone; an “imminent bond crash”; or maybe it's the Rand crashing again. Whatever it may be, it's no surprise to hear many investors keeping their cash away from the markets right now. But as the saying goes, “out of crisis comes opportunity”. And today ... ››› more

  • I've just made a huge prediction on where the pound is heading next…
  • What you're about to read might be great for South Africans, but not so great for the UK. Just a few months ago I was in London burning my fingers from every purchase. At the time the GBP/ZAR was trading at R23.00 to one pound. So every item of clothing, gadget and snack I bought in Regent Street was around four times more expensive than here in SA. MC Donalds alone on average was around ... ››› more

  • This is one of the most common investor mistakes
  • Today I want to explain one of the biggest mistakes investor's make. It has nothing to do with what you invest in, where you invest or how much you invest. It goes much deeper than that. It's got to do with your emotions and behaviour. The fact is, every investor experiences it at some point. And if you keep doing it, you're guaranteed to lose a fortune. Let me explain…   ------... ››› more

The Financial Planning Institute of South Africa says less than a quarter of South Africans can afford to retire. If you think that's ... ››› more

  • Former US Federal Reserve Chairman reveals the cure to the next global economic crisis
  • Remember Alan Greenspan? He was the former US Federal Reserve Chairman from 1986 to 2006. A corrupt, but smart man, who was responsible for pumping endless supply of dollars to “stimulate” the US economy to no avail. Well, in a recent interview after the Brexit referendum he had this to say: “This is the worst period, I recall since I've been in public service. There's nothing like i... ››› more

  • Three great ways to invest your money in 2016/17

  • Nobody's talking about it, but Platinum excites me more than Gold right now!
  • The gold price hit $1,354. It's the first time that it's above $1,300 since 2014! That's big news. And since the Brexit, all you hear is how investors are fleeing to the safety of gold. But I'm much more excited about another precious metal right now. I'm talking about platinum of course… The platinum price started 2016 at $820/ounce.

  • Why you should re-fall-in-love with these spurned market darlings
  • Last year was a rough year for markets. The All Share Index only managed to eke out a measly 5.22%, almost a third of its long-term average return. It was also a year in which we witnessed the spectacular fall from grace of two the JSE's former market “darlings”. MTN which delivered 136.23% between 2010 and 2015, ended the year down -36%, after getting smashed on the news of its Nigerian ... ››› more
