  • 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

  • Don't get caught in the JSE ALSI Bulltrap - Here's why
  • As a novice trader, it's easy to try and guess where the market's bottom is. It's easy to see a bounce in a falling market, and assume that things are going up from here. But calling a bottom is one of the most dangerous things a trader can do. In fact, with trading we say you're trying to ‘catch a falling knife'. Most traders pile up their positions with a whole bunch of longs (buys) a... ››› more

  • What's the reason for the crazy high inflation globally?
  • First world countries are suddenly dealing with higher inflation than in third world countries! In the US for instance inflation is currently at 8.5%. It hasn't been above 4% since 2009.

  • Tectonic Changes: The Soft Commodity Shift
  • In the modern age things always seem to happen quickly.

  • Why China will ultimately win the Russia-Ukraine war
  • As the war between Russia and the Ukraine continues to dominate headlines, we're starting to see a realignment of the global order. The US, and its allies in Europe, are driving the push back against the invasion.
