On Monday (11 May 2020), the Bitcoin Halving event took place for the first time in four years.
This was where the miners reward for Bitcoins per block was cut by half, from 12.5 Bitcoin down to 6.25.
I told you I expected Bitcoin to rally in the next couple of months.
Not only because, historically the Bitcoin price rallies after every Bitcoin Halving event but because there is on... ››› more
This year, I've been a precious metal bullion.
I've made predictions on gold, platinum and I've sent out 7 trade ideas to Red Hot Storm Trader.
Fortunately, the trades I've made have been correct 5 out of 7 times including:
These resource companies have helped me back a 259% gain for ... ››› more
Traditional currencies, like the US Dollar, Euro, Yen or Pound are all inflationary in nature, due to the very fact that central banks can print them at will. This means fiat money loses value every day as its purchasing power is reduced.
Bitcoin on the other hand, is widely considered to be a hedge against inflation.
That's because Bitcoin's supply is capped at 21 million and it's pre-pro... ››› more
What a horrible start to the year.
Just four months ago most people were dreaming about all the possibilities the new decade held. The world's newspapers and blogs were full of what could potentially be coming in the next 10 years. The widespread use of driverless electric cars. The excitement and fear over the rise of a real artificial Intelligence. And the massive advances in healthcare scie... ››› more
Just in: The South African Reserve Bank just lowered interest rates by another 1%, the second time in a month.
This puts the South African repo rate at a historic low!
We can write essays about what the lower interest rate means for business and consumers. But in short - lowering interest rates historically has meant one thing for gold. Its price goes up!
And as you can see in the c... ››› more
As I write this, over 1.8 billion people are currently in lock down.
This includes us, South Africans, as of 26th of March 2020.
And while most of us are twiddling our thumbs at home, we are probably asking the same questions.
1. What can I do with my time?
2. How long will this thing last?
3. Where is a safe place to invest my money?
I might not have the answer to the first two, ... ››› more
Lots of people think of gold as a hedge against uncertainty. And that's usually the case.
But over the past two weeks, something odd happened in the gold market…
From 9 March to 19 March, the dollar gold price fell from $1,679 to $1,472.
If gold is the ultimate hedge against uncertainty, why then, did it fall double digits (over 12%) in less than two weeks?

Unless you live under a rock, you'll know global markets have fallen dramatically over the last few days. Many major indices are now in bear market territory, having fallen more than 20% from highs. Some sectors, like energy, have fallen even further.
It's total carnage out there!
But, if you're a regular reader, you can't say we didn't warn you about this…
Firstly, as many of my reade... ››› more
Last week we saw a precious metal shoot up over $200 overnight!
This was the first time in history we saw this metal move over 8% within a few hours, taking it to a record high of $2,769.
Even Edward Meir, an analyst at ED&F Man Capital Markets said it…
“…has been unbelievable - it's like the Tesla stock of commodities,”
And while the Coronavirus continues to spread, stock mar... ››› more
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
Bitcoin has once again surpassed the psychological $10,000 level, which has been making headlines…
And now, investors, analysts and traders world-wide, don't know whether to buy more of it or just sell it…
Some are calling it a bubble, others are waiting for a pull back and some are waiting for a major crash.
But I'm going to put all of those emotional driven articles to bed... ››› more
This is not a drill…
The deadly coronavirus has not only claimed over 170 lives at last count and infected 1000s, it's also had a major impact on world stock markets and economies.
Investors are selling off their positions in equities, and seeking out alternatives like gold, platinum and bonds which have little effect on world markets.
And it looks like we are ... ››› more
The gold price sits at R23,044 an ounce - with its recent all time high at R23,721 per ounce.
In early 2018 gold was below R16,000 an ounce. So the shiny metal is up around 44% in 2 years!
This is being driven by the weak rand, as well as a rising dollar gold price.
Within mere months I expect we will see the rand gold price hit R26,000 levels.

Q. "Hi Timon, I have a question about the article you sent out on Monday with the five reasons you expect the gold price to rally.
Do you believe that the Coronavirus outbreak is another reason to get into gold and why?"
A. There does seem to be a strong correlation between the spreading of the virus versus the increase in the gold price.
In fact, on Friday we saw gold move... ››› more
Crazy to think we are near the end of January, and already I'm seeing green signals flashing on my screen.
In fact, the main sector that is showing major upside to come is in resources.
It looks like resources will be the trading and investment darling for 2020.
And what better way to start than with a strong prediction with the leader of all resources - GOLD.
Today I'm going to re... ››› more
Happy New Year and welcome to 2020.
The last time we entered a new decade, the world was recovering from the 08/09 Financial Crisis.
Since then, the US stock market has repeatedly hit new all-time highs (despite some bumps in the road).
And while we know the turning point in the cycle could be around the corner… we have to remember…

Normally, when I write about gold it's because I expect the price to rally to new highs. This is because gold has been on a continuous rally since October 2018.
And four out of five times, since September 2018, my Red Hot Storm Traders have closed four winners out of five gold related trades banking them gains of over 154% accumulated gains.
Today is different.

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
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%
