It's been like something out of a movie this month.
I'd call the movie something like "The Return of the Tanker Wars".
If you're old enough, you'll remember the 80s, when the oil tankers were targeted by US warships in the fight against Iran.

What a month it's been, especially last week!

And despite this mass culling, the JSE is still rising to new highs.
In this article we'll briefly catch you up on what happened in June with the m... ››› Read more
