If you missed the article, you can catch up here.
In today's article however, I would like to follow up and explain why I expect a strong rally despite the carnage that is taking place in the international markets.

Isn't it amazing how one man can send shockwaves through global equity markets, just through a tweet.
That's what investors have to deal with when it comes to US President Donald Trump and his trade wars.
What's worse, there's no telling whether we've already witnessed the highest points of tension between the US and China in the battle over international trade.

Did you know that cricket is one of the oldest sports in existence?
The sport dates back to the 16th century, and some believe it's even older than that!
It's also regarded as the second most popular sport in the world next to football.
It's so popular that around 1.5 billion people worldwide watched the 2015 World Cup.

2019 is shaping up to be a stellar year for crypto investors.
If you bought the two biggest cryptos - bitcoin and ethereum - at the beginning of 2019, you'd be sitting on gains of 63% and 29% respectively.
That's more than double the returns of the S&P500 and the JSE All Share.

There are bigger things happening behind the ... ››› Read more
The UK market has rallied over 9% year to date (the market was closed yesterday). But it remains just above a multi-year trading channel dating back to 1999. Investors and businesses don't like policy uncertainty and Brexit has created almost three years of it.
