  • Dealing with the Brexit aftermath... Stop panicking
  • When I heard the results of the Brexit vote last Friday, I was watching TV, clutching a cup of coffee and snuggling under a blanket with my sons in the diamond city, Kimberley. As soon as the news bulletin ended, my phone started to buzz uncontrollably. First, a message from my brother asking, “Did you see the Brexit result?” I ignored it.

  • Finally, the rand finds a stable footing thanks to the South African Reserve Bank
  • The past few weeks have been harrowing for the rand. It's been taking a severe beating from the dollar in the past two weeks. Worst of all, rumours about the arrest of Pravin Gordhan has certainly not been helping matters at all. But, finally, it seems to have found a moment of stability. How long this will last, I don't know. But let's take a closer look... The rand is battered by t... ››› more

  • First the spear, then the spike ... The rand crashes then recovers!
  • Last week, President Zuma made an unexpected announcement. Finance minister Nhlanhla Nene was let off (dare I say fired). And the sad thing is that he has been widely known to do a great job during difficult times. And is probably one of the most qualified person for the job. But as soon as the announcement came out, the rand crashed. It moved from R14.50 to R15.29 to the US dollar in just one h... ››› more

  • The end of the South African rand is nigh!
  • What a bitter-sweet situation we're in. Jobs are being created in the United States of America and the economy is growing at a good pace.

But it doesn't have to be. Let me take it a step further. ... ››› more

This chart sends a shiver down my spine, because if it plays out, it could be the end of South Africa as we know it. Let me explain… The ... ››› more
