When war hits, inflation soars, and the economy struggles, investors seek out gold.
This is advice many investors have heard over again.
And considering the price of gold is up from $1,791 in January this year to a high of $2,043 - and still floating around $1,950 this is pertinent advice.
But here's the thing… There are good ways to invest in gold. And then there are BAD ways to invest... ››› more
I'm finally getting a strong reason to buy gold.
Unfortunately, it comes off the back of bad news.
And this news, is a potential war brewing between many different countries.
If things escalate, it could be a World War 3 threat…
Already, Russia, Ukraine, the EU, America, and the UK are talking about attacks, hacks, sanctions and even war threats…
And guess what has been flying u... ››› more
After eight months, I'm finally getting a strong signal to buy gold.
It's been a long wait, but I believe it'll be worth it.
It comes off the back of both good and bad news...
On the one hand, we have a strong economy recovery on the way - where consumers are feeling more optimistic and investors are buying once again.
On the other hand, we may have a war brewing between two major ... ››› more
Last week, I predicted Silver will rally 24% this quarter.
And today, I'm predicting a rally in Gold!
It won't be the social media communities that will drive up gold.
Nope… It's down to the president of the United States and the richest man on earth (who happens to be South African!).
In this article, I'm going to explain why I expect a 12% rally with gold and what we can do to ... ››› more
Gold has had a fantastic run up this year.
In fact, over the past year we saw gold prices surge over 39% taking it to all-time highs at over $2,060 an ounce.
Best yet, we called it!
However, since the gold price hit my first price target at $1,960, in August, things turned very sour very quickly.
Just in the last week alone, we saw gold's worst weekly loss since November 2016.

Yesterday saw markets react decisively to the risk of COVID-19 to global growth. With most markets pulling back over 3%. This is due to an acceleration of new infections outside of China. It has hit Europe as Italy reports the 7th death and puts the town of Cologna on lock down, with others in the Lombardy region of northern Italy (a manufacturing hub) on unofficial lockdown.
The cause for ala... ››› more
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
Markets have been incredibly skittish over the last week.
And, while there are many reasons for concern, one of the main issues driving share prices lower is fear over the “inverted yield curve”.
If you skim the financial news, you'll see headlines like:
“Yield curve inversion hammers US small banks”
“Bond market yield curve inverts, signalling Fed may be too slow to cut... ››› more
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
In June 2019 I told readers that gold is headed higher… Back then I had a longer term target of $1,900 in mind.
Today, the gold price is already $100 higher than it was back then.
The rand is also weaker - leading to a rand gold price of more than R750,000/kg. That is R110,000 per kilo more than it was in June...
Gold has suddenly become so bullish that Goldman Sachs just upgraded it... ››› more
I'm sure you have seen the headlines signaling the Rand is on a downward spiral. We highlighted the Rand being at risk of weakness when it was below R13.90 to the USD two weeks ago. It's lost almost 3% but recovering steadily.
This bout of weakness is on the back of Eskom's new lifeline of R59 billion, over the next two years. After government committed R69 billion over three years earlier thi... ››› more
EOH's share price has pulled back and our stop loss at R24 helped us protect 71% of our gains. The share price has pulled back to R20.00 and the company has indicated the forensic inquiry has identified R1.2 billion in suspicious payments.
This is not a massive number and signals that the turn around in EOH will materialize over the coming months as Stephen van Coller delivers on his strategy. ... ››› more
There are 275 dividend paying shares in the JSE today. They average a dividend pay-out of 3.88%.
While a 3.88% dividend is surely better than nothing - this doesn't even cover the interest you'd have received on your cash with a fixed deposit.
And, once that money is paid out by a company the money is lost to it forever.
But what if I told you there's a better option - a company that d... ››› more
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
The US markets are closed today for the 4th of July public holiday. And, to celebrate our American friends' Independence Day, I thought it would be an excellent time to look at one of the most successful companies to come out of their capitalist democracy: Microsoft.

During the first quarter of 2019, my Red Hot Storm Traders banked two winning gold trades: A 47.77% gain in January and a 41.06% gain in February.
This was all because gold was above a critical level, which confirmed it was in a strong uptrend.
What's exciting is that, now we have an even bigger opportunity to continue profiting from the gold upside in the second quarter of 2019…

It's no secret that I believe 2019 will be a good year for gold.
You see, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) polled 30 experts on expectations for the gold price in 2019.
Twenty of these experts expect the gold price to rise PAST $1,400 in 2019!
Only six of the 30 analysts expect the gold price to remain below $1,300 for 2019.

Over the past month I've warned you about how the ongoing issues with the emerging markets, the rising petrol prices and with a sudden change with the ANC cabinet, we've seen the rand to weaken back to R15.00 per US dollar.
This has resulted in the JSE collapsing over 14% in the matter of two months.
While the JSE was in free fall, I noticed that investors were starting to pile their money... ››› more
President Zuma is trying to curry favour with supporters by investigating solutions to the “free” education agenda. The cost of this “free” education is an almost certain downgrade and the resignation of Michael Sachs. The Rand responded by weakening 20c yesterday.
