Last week, the US Federal Reserve finally cut interest rates again. The rationale behind this move is to help sustain US growth.
Now the quarter-point cut marks the third rate cut this year. And this can be good news for stock investors. In fact, following the latest announcement, US stock markets hit new highs.
But even better….
If history is anything to go by, we could see US stock... ››› more
We all know how ‘Black Friday' sees the most incredible deals in shops every year…
These deals are typically 30%, 40% and 50% discount on everything you buy.
In the same way I foresee great ‘Black Friday' specials on the JSE this year.
What am I talking about?
Well, since 2018 there have been around 35 companies delisted from the JSE. Around 10% of all the small cap shares on... ››› more
Q. “Once you've entered your trade, is there a process or criteria you use or follow that tells you when to close your trade?”

I'm talking about Platinum.
This precious metal has been in a depressed state for the past 10 years.
In fact, from 2008, the platinum price crashed from its peak at $2,308 down to a low of $780.
And since then we've seen it move in a sideways-downward range.
But in 2019, we've seen a major turn where the platinum price has finally broken out of this downward trend.
Today we... ››› more
I don't know if you noticed, but last weekend, bitcoin's price soared from around $7,500 to over $9,600 - a +28% gain!
Many cryptocurrency market analysts pointed to comments made by China's president President Xi Jinping that the country should "seize the opportunity" of bitcoin's blockchain technology, as the reason behind bitcoin's sudden rally.
You see, China banned bitcoin and cryptoc... ››› more
I remember, when I was younger, how PC gamers were the social pariahs.
Life was simple: The rugby players were the popular ones. The PC gamers were the geeks.
How things have changed!

Did you see recently the huge news on the Canadian cannabis front?
Well, on 17 October 2019, derivatives of marijuana — topicals and extracts — that were previously out of the question, were legalized in Canada.
This next stage of cannabis legalisation will create a tidal wave of new profits for cannabis companies.
And in turn reward early investors - who bank on the right compani... ››› more
In 2019 alone there have been 19 shares delisted from the JSE.
Not because they're bankrupt…
Or have violated regulations
Or just because it's too costly
They are companies that were selling for WAY less than what they were worth.
Companies that have been grabbed up by astute investors, companies and funds that know the profits they make are worth a lot more than t... ››› more
Many retail investors are bombarded with ways to invest through exchange traded funds (ETF), most of which passively track an index.
The ETF platforms highlight how cheap they are, but in actual fact they aren't cheaper. If you have more than R80,000 in the account, its expensive. The ETF platforms charge between 0.35% and 0.65% ex VAT just for annual admin fees. That's on top of the other fees... ››› more
Here's something you might agree on…
Investing is hard!
If it were easy, I guess, everybody would be rich.
But as investors, we often make it harder for ourselves to make money and grow our wealth - especially when we continuously fall into - often easily avoidable - investment traps.
Today I'm going to share two common ones, and how you can avoid them...

In this week's episode of the Trump versus the world, Turkey seems to be in the spot light.
Last week Monday, President Trump said that he was going to apply heavy duties, boost tariffs on the country's steel to 50% from 25%, authorise sanctions on Turkey and cut off a $100 billion trade deal following Ankara's invasion of north-east Syria.
This is a major concern for analysts worldwide a... ››› more
