  • Should you be afraid of the looming recession? And what to do about it…
  • US bond markets recently went into inversion. This is when short-term interest rates are higher than long-term interest rates. And what this can mean is a recession is around the corner. In this case, markets are anticipating a recession sometime in the next 6 to 24 months. But, even if you don't look at such a “technical” indicator, it should be clear the risk of recession is high.

  • Three JSE small caps that could become acquisition targets before the year is out

  • To buy or sell the JSE in November?
  • This month is a major one for South Africa… On 1 November we had the local municipal vote where we saw negative sentiment for both the rand and bonds.

  • Gold rockets through $2000 per ounce
  • I think we can all agree. 2020 is completely nuts! In the last week, we saw a nuclear-sized explosion in Beirut, after 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate flattened the port city. Trump is trying to force Chinese-backed TikTok to sell its US interests to Microsoft (with the US treasury getting a slice of the action) in what has to be the strangest M&A deal in history. And we have both the te... ››› more

  • Are your investments safe if your broker goes bust
  • 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.

  • This is the highest this commodity's ever been - here's how to profit
  • 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.   ... ››› more
