  • Now is a great time to start investing in shares
  • I bought my first shares in the midst of the 2008 financial crisis.

  • Has gold lost its “safe-haven” status?
  • 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?  ... ››› more

  • Black Monday madness creates buying opportunity?
  • Yesterday marked the worst day for global markets since the 2008 financial crisis. This is on the back of the collapse in oil prices, down over 30% at one point, as Saudi Arabia notified its clients that it will sell oil at reduced prices from 1 April 2020.

Traders who used futures would have made over 30% as our initial profit target was reached in just over a day. The Rand is strengthening on the back of Moody's just reducing the outlook from s... ››› more
