The JSE All Share Index (ALSI) has started 2021 on a strong note.
It climbed to the highest levels, we've seen in almost three years
And what's strange is, it happened during the 2nd COVID-19 Wave.
However, it was not local stocks that led to this JSE rally.
So, what was it?
In this article I'm going to share three main factors why the JSE is rallying and why I expect i... ››› more
Welcome to the first prediction article for the year.

One tradition I like to keep to when it comes to trading the markets, is buying the Santa Claus rally in South Africa.
Each year, I write to you about it and it most times, ends up being extremely profitable.
But this year, I thought it was going to be different.
I started to feel doubt and pessimism with the whole COVID-19 pandemic destroying the economies one by one.
And this yea... ››› more

Q. “Timon you mentioned in Monday's article that the two new vaccines are good for an oil price hike.
Could you tell me a few reasons why this would be the case?
A. Yes absolutely. First of all, I’ve always found oil to be one of the leading economic indicators.
And this is because oil is used in just about any industry. Especially when it comes to transport, manufacturing, p... ››› more
I feel like I'm in a dream.
In the span of two weeks we've have good news overflow the markets.
We had Joe Biden win the elections. Then a few days later, two vaccines come out to end the Covid-19 pandemic.
And both local and global markets have rallied over 4% in that time.
And when I went to my charts, I saw a commodity that is ready for an 18% rally.
I'm talki... ››› more
Q. "Timon with Joe Biden becoming the next president, what are your thoughts on energy and oil prices?"
A. For a short answer, I have never been more bullish (positive) with oil and the energy sectors.
You see, with the Donald Trump administration there were ongoing trade wars and tension with China over the last four years.
And for this reason, we ke... ››› more
Just one week ago, I was feeling very bearish and down with the markets.
I thought Donald Trump would stay president until 2024. I thought we weren't going to see any signs of a vaccine. And I thought South Africa would head back into lockdown.
Boy was I wrong. And I couldn't be any happier with being wrong.
Before we knew it, there was a massive change of hearts in the markets this we... ››› more
Q. “Timon you were right about the delay in the voting in the USA, due to the counting of hand mail.
But now the big question is.
What can we expect with the US stock markets, with Joe Biden becoming the next American President?”
A. I did some research on the weekend. When I went to back-test the US stock markets over the last 23 election years, what I found might surprise ... ››› more
Last week, was a wild ride.
We had a global sell-off in stocks and currencies due to:
• The nail-biting election between Trump & Biden
• Major dollar weakness with the lack of confidence in America
• A resurgence in COVID-19 cases to new highs in Europe and America
And while all hell was breaking loose, the South African rand was on fire.
In fact, last week it broke below ... ››› more
Q. “Hi Timon, with the gemors going on in South Africa, I really want to just be able to trade overseas. Could you please tell me how I can open an offshore trading account, how much money I'll need and which brokers are the easiest to trade with?”
A. I fully understand where you’re coming from.
It’s not safe anymore to keep your money in just one place – especiall... ››› more
Election, Stimulus, Resurgence and Rectangle.
These four words, could be the underlying reasons for a major Dow Jones crash.
I'm sure you felt things were starting to get better, economically, socially and mentally.
We were wrong…
The next COVID-19 wave has already hit America and Europe, and it's a matter of time before it comes back to South Africa.
And I'm d... ››› more

Q. Timon is the Average Directional Index indicator a good one for determining the trend for the JSE All Share Index? What are your thoughts?
A. You know Mark, I wish I got more questions with regards to indicators…
I know I am a breakout trader by profession, but I love to analyse using other indicators when looking at the charts.
Before we do the analysis, I need to let my readers ... ››› more
