Coal

  • The energy coal market is SUPER hot right now?!
  • A year ago, banks were saying they don't want to finance coal mine development any longer. European countries were closing down coal power plants. It looked like there was little interest in the commodity going forward. But now the price of coal is booming. In October last year a ton of export coal sold for around $90. Today it sells between $300 and $400! That's a big change… ... ››› more

  • South Africa's ailing, booming economy - what's going on?
  • “The South African economy is BOOMING.” “The South African economy is BLEEDING.” Both these statements are true at the same time. South Africa's economy is back at the size it was before the coronavirus pandemic struck, after growing faster-than-expected in the first quarter. Gross domestic product expanded 1.9% in the three months through March, compared with revised growth of... ››› more

  • In the Mail Bag - Ukraine VS Russia
  • In our QA mailbox this past week... Q. “Timon I read the Monday article about why you expect gold to rally with the whole Russia and Ukraine invasion going on. I found it fascinating and would love to know more. I'm not sure if this is the right platform, but I don't know where else to ask.

  • I think it's GAME-OVER for the South African Rand in 2022
  • Since last year, emerging currencies have been falling. Scrap that… CRASHING… We aren't sure why exactly, but I think it's all down to what is happening with the US. You see, the FED is expecting to raise their interest rates this year. This will help dampen the inflation rate. As this is good for the GDP and the economy, it will lead to US dollar strength and weakness among o... ››› more

To give you an idea, the highest inflation has gone in the EU since 2010 was around 2.5%. And there were actually times inflation was NEGATIVE. Here in SA, we even hit a four year high. In a rece... ››› more

  • I have three GOLDEN reasons to buy these two companies

This told us, they are steering away from coal and petroleum and moving into cleaner and healthier energy alternatives. I also mentioned that, this will... ››› more

  • It might be unpopular but the world simply can't go without this resource
  • Coal is the dirty stepchild in the mining sector. And boy is it unpopular at the moment. Coal miners report that it's getting more and more difficult to get finance for new projects. After hitting a low of $56 a tonne in April 2020, the coal price has soared. Coal now sells for double what it did in 2020 - with the latest Richards Bay Coal Terminal pricing coming in around $112.92 a ton wi... ››› more

  • This could signal the end of load shedding - and a boost to private business in SA
  • Load shedding has been a headache for us all. If you hoped it would end thanks to maintenance Eskom did during lockdown - you were disappointed.

It's become clear that the solution to this problem likely won't come from Eskom alone… ... ››› more
