I know the promise of fast profits with trading sounds great and that this is the prime reason people are drawn to the world of trading.
But the flip side to fast profits are fast losses. What most people forget or ignore is that where there is high reward, there is always high risk.
And that's I want to bring to your attention today.
Here are three of the most common novice mistakes ma... ››› more
If you ask any trader how trading is going on the JSE, you'll hear the same thing.
“It's damn difficult.”
“The JSE can't decide on direction”
So whether you buy or sell, chances are you've got it wrong!
But if you know how to read a ‘Blue Diamond', you would know how to profit in this environment.
Let me show you what I mean…

March 2009 - that was the first time I ever bought a share…
It was Old Mutual. And while Old Mutual was a massive company, the 2008 financial crisis decimated it, and the share became a ‘penny stock'.
I bought my first shares in the company for 603c, with the money I made from vacation work as a student at the mine I had a bursary with. I bought 990 shares with around R6,000.

I want to show you how you can turn R10,000 into R87,400. Or to turn R100,000 into R874,000 with this one trading strategy.
I need to be honest though…
There is no fool-proof system for making money. Trading always carries risk. But I've worked HARD to perfect this system - to eliminate as much risk as possible.
And that's why, with my strategy, you will win more than you lose. Earlier ... ››› more
Throughout 2016 and early 2017 Rolfes had a great run, up from R2.76 to a high of R5.
But the share has suddenly dropped in the past two weeks.
A number of investors and analysts attribute this to the fact that the company hasn't released a trading statement.
So what does a trading statement have to do with share price?
The JSE requires companies to release trading statemen... ››› more

Two weeks ago I posted an article where I made a prediction on where gold is more likely to be going next.

I've been watching the World Series Poker lately.
There was one match that really got me on the edge of my seat.
It was the most intense ALL-IN poker hand I've ever seen.
It got to the point where it was between Will Kassouf and Griffin Benger.
In short: Will Kassouf was using a bullying technique to Griffin and other poker players by ridiculing them. Griffin told Will it was “verbal... ››› more

When I say trader what do you think about?
How about a stressed out guy with over four screens, screaming every time he gets in and out of a trade?
How about a guy who's pulling his hair out at the thought that he's losing his wealth very quickly?
How about a guy that has tons of charts, calculators and pieces of paper on his desk to do complicated maths sums with his trades?
This couldn'... ››› more

Let's start your year on a profitable note.
I'm sure you hear how many people make resolutions when their year starts.
I want to lose 10 kilograms
I'm going on a lifestyle-change diet
I'm going to save 1/3 of my money this year

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be introducing you to the popular casino game known as Blackjack.
Why Blackjack over Poker? Or even Roulette?
Well the simple answer is, it's the one casino game the house has the least control over the outcome.
It's also the game that can help you pocket a decent amount of money, in a short time.
For example, last week, I managed to turn R200 in... ››› more

Last week I introduced you to the basics of Blackjack, now I'm going to show you exactly when to hit and stand.
But first it's vital to understand that the players aren't trying to beat each other, like you'd do in poker, but each player is trying to beat the dealer.
So never worry about the player's hand sitting next to you, always keep your attention on the dealer.
