A. Sure, these are the three main types of traders that exist. And it’s important to find which style suits your... ››› more

I am officially raising my price target for Bitcoin.
Back in May, I sent out my first Bitcoin prediction article for the year.
At the time it was trading at $9,300.
There were two main factors that told me Bitcoin was heading to +$15,000.
The anticipated Bitcoin halving event and a golden crossover. Things were on track, until last week.
Last week, two major technical events... ››› more
Frankfurt's Dax 30 is definitely the star index of the year…
It started the year at 13,126 moved to a frightening low of 8,158 in March and then recovered to over 13,200 in July.

And I believe this is going to continue in the next couple of months.
Right now, investors are feeling super optimistic about the index as it i... ››› more

It's been an absolute roller coaster for the rand this year.
In January it was trading strongly at R14.50 to the US dollar.
In late April, we thought it was the end of the rand as it traded at R19.00 to the dollar.
And now, it's currently trading at R16.55.
I believe there's been two main causes for the rand's volatility namely.

Last week I mentioned that the worst was finally over for America and that I expected the Dow Jones to hit new all-time highs.
This was based on three things…

• Two bio-tech companies announced the progress of future vaccines for the coronavirus.
• The federal reserve to inject $600 billion for SME (Small-Medium En... ››› more

On Monday (11 May 2020), the Bitcoin Halving event took place for the first time in four years.
This was where the miners reward for Bitcoins per block was cut by half, from 12.5 Bitcoin down to 6.25.
