  • Why the oil price is set to slide
  • At the rate, the rand is weakening, and with a stronger oil price, we could see R20 petrol by end of 2018. At least that's what some economists are saying. But if it happens, it won't be due to the oil price. In fact, I foresee that the oil price is in for a dip soon… You my be interested in...   Get started with as little as R500 a month And it... ››› more

  • Rand Hedges in focus as the Rand's run seems to have ended
  • The Rand is on the back foot as US treasury yields jumped towards 3%, an important psychological level for investors. The weaker Rand helped the resources and rand hedge industrials rise yesterday as banks and retailers pulled back. After a surprisingly strong run, the Rand appears to be heading back to resistance at R12. 48 as anxiety and volatility return to more normal levels.   ... ››› more

  • Which will be the top retail pick in 2017?
  • Happy new year everyone, I hope you all had a good break and did tons of holiday shopping for your friends and family! Why? Because yesterday marked the beginning of the retail reporting season. And, in the next couple of weeks we're going to see just how much South African's spent at the shops in December.

  • The shiny trade no one is talking about…
  • I call it platinum fatigue… Eight years ago, platinum hit $2,200/ounce. It subsequently crashed to $800, recovered to $1,500 and dropped back to $800 again in 2016. Everyone's basically given up on platinum, there's just been too much drama for the metal… Did you even notice that platinum is up $100 since December 2017?   On 26 December 2016, Platinum was at $894 per oun... ››› more

  • I was wrong
  • I was wrong about the rand. I thought it was going to go up to R10 a dollar, but I'm not going to cry about it. You can see looking at the USD/ZAR (United States Dollar versus the South African Dollar) weekly chart, a large wedge pattern formed from January 2016 up ‘till August 2017. A wedge pattern is known as a reversal pattern where the price wedges down into a triangle formation. And a... ››› more

  • Trump's first days in office + 3 to buy and 2 to sell
  • Last week's sentiment remained positive and markets continued their rally. President Trump's first days in office are being closely monitored and provide plenty for traders to digest. The JSE Top 40 closed the week up 0,8%, but retreated slightly on Friday along with generally softer developed markets; for the year to date the JSE is up 7,7%. Kumba rallied 27% after it provided a product... ››› more

  • These are the best and worst penny shares in the mining sector
  • Between October 2015 and mid-January 2016 the JSE Resources index crashed 38%. Mining shares were out of favour more than they've ever been. Since then, the index has recovered some of these losses, becoming one of the best performing sectors on the JSE for 2016.

  • 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. Today it's trading $280 higher at $1,100 per ounc... ››› more

  • Two junior miners to ride out the weak rand
  • The Rand has crashed to R16.70 a dollar. On 30 November 2015 a Bloomberg report speculated the rand could hit R20 to a dollar. Then on 8 January 2016 a Fin 24 report again reiterated the R20 to a dollar level for 2016 and Cees Bruggemans, a well known economist predicts we could see R22.50 to the dollar before 2018! In short, if you're not investing in rand hedge shares you're losing mone... ››› more
