  • 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.

  • A simple strategy to beat fund managers at their own game
  • Right now, there are just north of 400 shares on the JSE. Of these shares, investment funds only invest in the top 40, and perhaps the top 100… Only 161 shares are on the JSE All-Share index… If you invest in a fund you're most likely investing in the JSE's Top 40 Index.

  • Don't make these three fatal mistakes with a Tax-Free Savings Account
  • Just imagine the shock I got when I read that, “59% of TFSAs have been opened at banks, and the majority of investments are in cash.” Really? Cash investments? That really worries me. Think about this… Investing in a tax-free deposit account from the major South African banks will give a return between 6%-8%. But consider that inflation is sitting at 6.1% and not going to stop th... ››› more

  • Invest in the world's most powerful economy with just R100 a month
  • When the results of the Brexit referendum came on Friday 24 June 2016, the rand fell more than 8% against the dollar. This was the biggest fall against the American currency since 2008.

  • Why you should lend the government money
  • It's simple, lending money to government is a guaranteed income bearing investment. Most investors fail to recognise the value in this form of investing.
