n the last few weeks, we have seen hundreds of billions of dollars wiped out of the markets.
We have seen crypto drop its trillion US dollar market cap status.

Q. “Hi Timon, I have a R250,000 portfolio and I am using the special 2% risk rule per trade as you have taught us. Based on your last trade with Shoprite with the entry being R242 and your stop loss being R232.00 does this mean I should buy xxx CFD contracts in this trade?” Hi Pete,

You'll often hear us say the same thing.
To trade successfully you'll need to know how to follow the rules, keep to discipline and repeat the process.
