  • How you can start investing today - even with a tiny amount of money
  • 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 Rand has recovered over 12%, now is the time to invest offshore
  • Many investors rush for the exit at the same time, causing a whip-saw effect in asset prices. The Rand is particularly vulnerable to this as one of the major currencies. Emerging market (EM) investors can use it as a proxy for less liquid EM currencies, and use it to hedge as it has the benefit of straddling trading hours in parts of Asia and America. There are two ways for you to get ... ››› more

  • The Butterfly Effect may blow up Africa
  • You may have heard of the Butterfly Effect. Chaos theory predicts it is possible for the flap of a butterfly's wing in China to cause a hurricane in the US. Though this sounds like fantasy, we may actually be witnessing one of the greatest “butterfly effects” in history. A little while ago, likely in 2019, a single virus particle made a jump from bats to humans. In terms of scale, this... ››› more

  • Vaccinate your portfolio from COVID-19 with these 4 shares
  • Last week was a scary time for most investors as global markets racked up new records for the fastest 10% pullback in history. The worst weekly decline for the American indices since the 2008 financial crisis. And, the biggest single day decline for most markets as the bottom fell out of the market. These concerns are over the impact to global growth from the shut down and restrictions in Chi... ››› more

  • Warning: This investment opportunity is NOT for the faint-hearted
  • China is in chaos. The Coronavirus has just about brought the world's second largest economy to a standstill. As a nation, the Chinese have been restricted to their homes. The government has cancelled flights… Shut down cities… And tragically nearly 500 people have already lost their lives! It's a disastrous social crisis, and one which has roiled global markets. On the economi... ››› more

  • Is this the catalyst that'll send gold to new all-time highs?
  • In October 2019 the US Federal Reserve Bank announced that instead of shrinking its balance sheet by $50 billion a month it is now PRINTING $60 billion worth of money extra per month! That's right… The bank was in the process of unwinding the nearly $4 trillion worth of money it printed to get the US economy going following the 2008 financial crisis. Now it is printing more money each mo... ››› more

  • Five reasons for gold's rally in 2019 and why I expect it to rise further
  • Did you know since the start of the year, gold has risen to just about 16%. It's been a great year for not only investors, but for us traders as well. In fact, this year alone with Red Hot Storm Trader, we've managed to bank three out of four winners on Anglo Gold with the gold rise including… • January 2019: + 47.77% • February 2019: + 41.10% • July 2019: + 34.97% • Sept... ››› more

  • When low cost passive investing becomes expensive
  • Many retail investors are bombarded with ways to invest through exchange traded funds (ETF), most of which passively track an index. The ETF platforms highlight how cheap they are, but in actual fact they aren't cheaper. If you have more than R80,000 in the account, its expensive. The ETF platforms charge between 0.35% and 0.65% ex VAT just for annual admin fees. That's on top of the other fees... ››› more

  • This chart shows today's hottest investment
  • Right now there's one sector I'm particularly excited about on the JSE. I recently banked a 150%+ gain from a share in less than 4 months in this sector, and I believe it has only started running. I'm talking about Gold… And while the shiny metal itself has delivered investors very good returns over the years, right now gold miners are in an even better position to profit. Let me... ››› more

  • Finally…Bakkt is set to launch today! And it could be great news for crypto investors
  • One year ago, the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) - which owns the NYSE - revealed plans to launch a futures exchange and digital assets platform - called Bakkt. Bakkt's goal? To transform Bitcoin into a trusted global currency with broad usage. More importantly, make Bitcoin a more sound and secure offering for key players in the market who mostly shunned it… I'm talking about the... ››› more

  • What to do ahead of 2020's looming recession
  • Recent poll numbers show that President Trump has lost some serious favour with his core constituency. I can't say I'm surprised. The trade war has hit American farmers hard. With the Chinese increasing tariffs on US agricultural goods, Chinese customers are no longer buying them. And that means that Trump needs to act - and fast - if he wants any chances at securing a second term in t... ››› more

  • Why ETFs could cause the next market crash
  • If you've ever watched The Big Short, chances are you know who Michael Burry is. He's the guy who figured out a bubble was forming in the US housing markets pre-2008. He also correctly predicted a market crash would ensue and made a ton of money shorting the housing market. This week, he noted there are correlations between the bubble which formed in the housing market and Exchange Traded Fund... ››› more

  • Does it still pay to invest in gold?
  • Gold's been a form of money, an investment and a store of value for almost as long as modern day man has walked the earth. Some argue gold is a barbaric relic that no longer holds the monetary qualities of the past. They say paper currency, or electronic currencies such as Bitcoin, are the assets of choice. But the fact remains that gold has been a very stable appreciating asset for centur... ››› more

  • Will the SEC approve or reject the Bitcoin ETF? Either way it's going up!
  • It's been a big month for Bitcoin. You see, investors and traders from all over the world have been waiting eagerly for the SEC to either accept or reject the Bitcoin ETF (VanEck SolidX bitcoin-exchange-traded-fund) proposal. However, on 22 May 2019 Wednesday, last week the decision was once again delayed to 19 August 2019 for the final deadline. This gives us the perfect opportunity ... ››› more

  • MORE income than a share, SAFE like a bond
  • Last week, I explained the power of income investing. And how it can boost the overall performance of your portfolio…even in the worst of times. I also revealed (in short) some of the best ways to start generating an income for your portfolio. Today I'd like to delve deeper into one of those income investments. The reason why, is because they offer more income than a normal share... ››› more

  • Rand Rally loses steam, here's how to profit
  • The Rand has been one of the strongest EM currencies in the past few weeks, but the strength will be short lived. The Rand has been boosted by a dovish FED, an ECB trying to balance monetary policy and economic growth, and the easing of Trade War fears. But all the positives are fickle and cautious investors should be looking a few steps ahead.       Investors looking to diversify off... ››› more

  • "It's not often I give up details on two great shares to buy
  • Extremely wealthy people don't invest in ETF's. They don't buy properties from estate agent listings… They buy into private deals. They buy businesses before they even list on the stock market… And, they typically do the opposite of what textbooks tell you to do… They don't invest in hundreds of businesses and ‘diversify' their holdings by industry, country and market… They tend to... ››› more
