  • What are REITs, how they work and which are the best REITs to buy in 2019
    Q. "I've seen that REITs have become widely spoken about in the news lately, since the Federal Reserve decided to cut the interest rates by 25 basis points to 2%. This has sparked my interest to look into investing in REITs. Timon could you explain briefly what a REIT is, how they work and why the drop in interest rates have attracted investors into buying them?”   A. REITs (pronounced R... ››› more

  • Never let a good crisis go to waste
  • Never let a good crisis go to waste
    As Winston Churchill once said “Never let a good crisis go to waste”, we believe investors should be ensuring they have enough exposure to offshore assets that will be a hedge against a “deeper crisis” and should be slowly buying depressed local assets if they have cash on hand. Most investors have been sitting on the sidelines not fully exposed to equities You can't blame local invest... ››› more

  • Why traders and investors are preparing for a HUGE move up for silver!
  • Why traders and investors are preparing for a HUGE move up for silver!
    At the end of February 2019, I sent out a prediction article on silver. In it, I mentioned that silver's price broke above a ceiling level (blue line in the graph below) at $15.80.   Since then, the silver market’s price buying momentum picked up and has been in a strong upward trajectory.   In fact, right now the silver price is trading at around $16.52, ... ››› more

  • The biggest threat to China is a… cryptocurrency
    When Facebook announced plans to launch its new digital currency Libra, it was met with fear…Especially in China. When questioned on Facebook's Libra at a press conference, the founder and CEO of Huawei hit back saying, “China can also issue such a [crypto]currency by itself. Why wait for others to issue it? The power of a country is always stronger than an Internet company.” The ... ››› more

    Q. "I've been following PickPocket Trader service for a few months and I must say I'm happy about the four winning trades in a row. I find that Trader X has a strategy where he likes holding onto trades for several weeks. However, I would like to incorporate a strategy alongside with his and would like to hear what you think… Essentially, I'll buy at the price Trader X sends out, and if the ... ››› more

  • The ZAR's Eskom induced downward spiral
    I'm sure you have seen the headlines signaling the Rand is on a downward spiral. We highlighted the Rand being at risk of weakness when it was below R13.90 to the USD two weeks ago. It's lost almost 3% but recovering steadily. This bout of weakness is on the back of Eskom's new lifeline of R59 billion, over the next two years. After government committed R69 billion over three years earlier thi... ››› more

  • Does blockchain hold the answer to the internet's biggest challenge?
    In the growing world of online, data privacy is of the utmost importance. Even more so if you're a company that stores people personal data. In this day and age, if you fail to protect personal data, you will suffer major backlash. Just take the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal - where Cambridge Analytica harvested the personal data of millions of people's Facebook profiles... ››› more

  • 3 Small-Cap Stocks with BIG potential
    Landing winning stocks doesn't have to mean investing in small, high-risk operations. Even big companies offer the potential of rich returns over time. But some small businesses will turn into tomorrow's biggest winners and create massive wealth for investors that got in at the right time. Small-cap stocks, or the penny shares we invest in, are generally companies with market caps of less than... ››› more

  • Why Tether's major supply shift is good news for Ethereum investors
  • Why Tether's major supply shift is good news for Ethereum investors
    Tether is a name that comes up again and again in crypto. It's been called negative things like a ‘scam' and ‘fraudulent'.   On the other hand, as a stablecoin, it’s also been called ‘the most useful cryptocurrency in existence’, since its price is pegged to the dollar.    But today I’m not here to join in on this debate.     Instead, I’m going to sh... ››› more

  • Why these shares that DON'T pay dividends just could be the best investments right now
  • Why these shares that DON'T pay dividends just could be the best investments right now
    There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%. While a 3.88% dividend is surely better than nothing - this doesn't even cover the interest you'd have received on your cash with a fixed deposit. And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever. But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more

  • Why you should go long the USD/ZAR
  • Why you should go long the USD/ZAR
    The Rand has staged a stellar rally. Strengthening from above R15 against the USD to below R13.90. It came within half a cent of our R13.8550 target against the USD but the price is consolidating. It's time to bank our profits after a 6.24% gain, with gearing your gain could have been more than ten times larger. Trading the other way and going long the USD against the ZAR has good risk to rewa... ››› more

  • How to avoid ‘fake crypto' trading
    Like many financial instruments, it's in a crypto's interest to get big trading volume numbers on exchanges. This shows that people are taking an interest in it and are actually using it. It shows investors believe in the crypto's project. It is also in exchanges' interest to have large volumes of crypto traded. The higher volume your exchange has the more trustworthy it seems, and the mor... ››› more

  • Does it still pay to invest in gold?
    Gold's been a form of money, an investment and a store of value for almost as long as modern day man has walked the earth. Some argue gold is a barbaric relic that no longer holds the monetary qualities of the past. They say paper currency, or electronic currencies such as Bitcoin, are the assets of choice. But the fact remains that gold has been a very stable appreciating asset for centur... ››› more
