Q. “I'm so keen to start trading with Pickpocket Trader and Red Hot Storm Trader!

I'm talking about silver…
You see, silver is used in three main industries:
• Jewellery (30% demand) (Bracelets, necklaces, rings, coins etc…)
• Industrial (50% demand) (Electronics, solar panels, 5G tech, silverware & electric vehicles)
• Investment as a form of a safe haven
And now we're seeing more cars on the road, factories opening their doors and investor sentiment is... ››› more
The word “investing” might conjure up men in suits, big deals around boardroom tables and the exchange of millions of rands.
But today I'm here to tell you that investing is not just for the rich, it's not just for super smart financial gurus. And you don't have to be the Wolf of Wall Street to start investing.
Even if you have only a few rands to spare, you can start investing today.... ››› more
The final theme in our 6-part series is Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals.
While the global pandemic seems to be “under control” and vaccine trials on the go, there's a continued focus on healthcare, hospitals and medication. These form part of a defensive sector that is generally less cyclical.
In preparation for an increase in Covid-19 patients the healthcare sector ramped up medical e... ››› more
A bear market refers to a widespread decline in asset prices of at least 20%.
We've seen stock markets fall 20% and more in recent months. The oil price fell through the floor, and unemployment is soaring.
This is not a fun time to be in, and you might be confused, panicked or just blown away.
The good news is, this is only a phase - and it will also pass. Things will turn around and l... ››› more
Headlines this morning will be dominated by the fact that WTI traded at -$40.32 a barrel before settling at just over $1.
Most retail investors will be thinking they have missed out on the trade of a lifetime when Oil trades above $20 today (when the June contract starts trading).
But the only people who could have made big money buying oil at near zero or negative are those who can take p... ››› more
This week I received a mail from a client asking me “How can I be sure my broker doesn't run away with my money - or that my investments are safe with them?”
At first I thought it might be a bit dramatic - worrying about these things right now. But then I thought about the 2008 financial crisis and how Lehman Brothers went belly up. Lehman Brothers was one of the largest brokerages and inv... ››› more
As I write this, over 1.8 billion people are currently in lock down.
This includes us, South Africans, as of 26th of March 2020.
And while most of us are twiddling our thumbs at home, we are probably asking the same questions.
1. What can I do with my time?
2. How long will this thing last?
3. Where is a safe place to invest my money?
I might not have the answer to the first two, ... ››› more
All I can say is…
“That escalated quickly.”
On the 10th of February I sent out the article “BREAKING: Is this the next Oil Crisis?”
And last week in a matter of seconds, the oil price fell over 30%, striking right through my first target price.
This was Brent Crude's biggest one-day percentage drop since the start of the Gulf War in 1991.
And I haven't even mentio... ››› more

Many analysts have predicted 2020 will be a choppy year for investors, but NO ONE could have anticipated a threat like the Coronavirus. And, although many of you have likely heard of the disease, I believe most people are yet to understand its implications.
According to most estimates, this appears to be a very infectious sickness (twice as high as a normal flu) with a moderate death rate (l... ››› more
Brent crude has had an abysmal start of the year.
As things stand, the price is hovering around $50 per barrel which is the lowest it's been in over 12 months.
A major, if not ONLY factor, that's resulted in the drop in brent crude is the Coronavirus.
As I write this, the virus has already infected more than 17,000 Chinese people and more than 350 have died. The numbers are rising on... ››› more
Tesla, the US based electric car maker is up 81% since the start of 2020.
And an incredible 150% in just a year!
It's not very often you see a $140 billion company grow this rapidly?
Let's take a look at what's behind this astronomic growth?

The gold price sits at R23,044 an ounce - with its recent all time high at R23,721 per ounce.
In early 2018 gold was below R16,000 an ounce. So the shiny metal is up around 44% in 2 years!
This is being driven by the weak rand, as well as a rising dollar gold price.
Within mere months I expect we will see the rand gold price hit R26,000 levels.

While you're enjoying the summer sun and clear skies back in SA paradise…
I'm afraid I'm not.

In this week's episode of the Trump versus the world, Turkey seems to be in the spot light.
Last week Monday, President Trump said that he was going to apply heavy duties, boost tariffs on the country's steel to 50% from 25%, authorise sanctions on Turkey and cut off a $100 billion trade deal following Ankara's invasion of north-east Syria.
This is a major concern for analysts worldwide a... ››› more
