Gold Price

  • 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

  • When fear grows - these stocks soar
  • The rand is at R15.37 to the dollar - the weakest we've seen since the Zuma era. We can blame this on NHI, EWC or a string of other three lettered government policies that aren't business friendly. But at the end of the day the whole world is running scared right now. Thanks to the US trade war, negative bond yields in many European countries and increasing world debt. In fact, for t... ››› more

  • One of the top penny stocks to watch in September 2019
  • By definition, Penny Stocks trade at R10 or less and they're typically small companies with big growth potential. These investments are attractive because small share price moves translate into large percentage gains - or losses if you pick the wrong stock. In short, these are volatile investments, so you're advised to use caution. But if you're looking for one of these top penny stock com... ››› more

  • South Africa's deep mines are dying - but these companies are set to profit big time!
  • South Africa sits with the ‘achievement' of having 8 out of the world's ten deepest mines. While this is clearly an achievement in engineering - it's a problem specifically for our gold mining industry. Production costs have skyrocketed, accidents in the deep mines make it even more difficult to profit. In fact, in the 1970's South Africa produced as much as 80% of the world's gold,... ››› more

  • Gold might be going up, but don't even think about buying these gold stocks!
  • Over the last two months we've seen the gold price trickle from its low at $1,053 to $1,292 an ounce. South African investors worldwide are piling into gold stocks. This is a big problem according to my analysis. You see, South Africa might have been the world's biggest gold producer, but not anymore! In 1970, South Africa produced over 67.7% of the world's gold production. But now it... ››› more

  • The gold price hits near five-month highs as concerns grow over global economic growth
  • The gold price has been climbing higher and today touched levels not seen for nearly five-months.
