  • What does the US inflation figure mean for your portfolio?
  • US inflation came in at 7% on Wednesday. This is so far beyond the US target rate of 2% it's terrifying. To give you some perspective about how big a miss this is, our SA target rate is up to 6%. So, to miss it as much as the US did, our inflation rate would need to be 21%.

  • Did Boris Johnson make the market fall

  • I'm no Nostradamus - But the rand is in major trouble
  • The rand has really taken a beating this year.    In July I wrote an article, From Lockdown 4 to Jumanji - Here's why I'm selling the rand.
