  • For the first time in 14 years, the Euro could be weaker than the US Dollar
  • What you're about to read will shock you… 1999 - The Euro came into existence in January which was the goal of the European Union and its predecessors since the 1960s. Initially there was a negative reaction as the Euro fell below parity (1:1) with the US Dollar for the first time.

  • I've just made a huge prediction on where the pound is heading next…
  • What you're about to read might be great for South Africans, but not so great for the UK. Just a few months ago I was in London burning my fingers from every purchase. At the time the GBP/ZAR was trading at R23.00 to one pound. So every item of clothing, gadget and snack I bought in Regent Street was around four times more expensive than here in SA.

  • This could be worse than the 2008 financial crisis
  • On 23 June 2016, I remember reading a Moneyweb article stating the “JSE, Rand shrug off Brexit fears”. Another well-known market commentator said that “I think it is going to be a non-event, quite honestly, but if it so happens that they vote to leave, the markets are in for a massive shock.
