There are two approaches to making money from the markets.
The well-trodden path. The path almost everyone seems to take. The one that grinds out a decent return over the course of a life. Safety first.
If you're patient, if you're willing to wait 30 or 40 years for a meaningful return on your capital… that is the path for you. Go out today, buy an ETF and never look at an individual sha... ››› more
There's an old saying on Wall Street that says, "Profits are a matter of opinion, but dividends are a matter of fact."
And simply put - I believe too few investors are giving sufficient attention to many of the incredible dividend paying stocks on the JSE…
If you're like me, into fast moving high return shares, you know its even more difficult finding small cap companies that pay a divid... ››› more
Recently while watching the soccer at my local pub, a regular face approached me grinning from ear to ear.
Immediately I said, “So I guess the next rounds on you?”
To which he replied, “Your whole tab is on me!”
You see, earlier that month I gave him a piece of advice that seemed to be the last piece to his betting strategy.

The market sold off strongly last week Wednesday, but only in the morning. This was an opportunity for the market to reset, find a bottom and allow buyers with fresh capital to come in.
The ALSI future came within a couple points of its 200-week moving average, a level which it has bounced from strongly, since 2014.
It's seen a peak to pull back over 14%, that's a healthy correction and cur... ››› more
If you're an avid reader of MoneyMorning, you've probably heard about “value-traps” - companies that seem cheap because they're trading at a massive discount to its sector, peers or net asset value for a period of time.
But do you know what an “income-trap” is?
Well, they're companies that seem attractive because of their high dividend yields.
You may not believe me, but many i... ››› more
Global markets typically have a good run in April before the “Sell in May and Go Away” period, but the spike in volatility in February and March has shaken investors. With global markets down year to date, we should see investors buy this dip and a potential run up in April that will make up for 2018's rocky first quarter.

Okay. So you've got in, bought some cryptos, hopefully seen your profits increase and now cashed out for a sizeable gain.
The only thing left to do, before you go spending all that money, is pay your taxes.
I know this is not the most exciting part of the guide, but it's potentially the most important.

Regular readers will recall I wrote an article a few weeks ago, which claimed that investing the full Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) allowance for your new-born child would turn him into a billionaire by the time he retired.
Even after the effects of inflation, this investment would mean R200,000 per month income, in today's money.
An explosive claim, I know, but one that I can back up wi... ››› more
What if I told you that you could make 35% growth off an investment even if the market only rises by 10%, 5% or even as little as 1%?

And, you can do this by getting exposure to the fastest growing markets in the world?
Almost sounds too good to be true.
But it's possi... ››› more

• NEM, which returned over 29,800%
• Stellar, which returned over 14,400%
