  • Last week was a busy week with the market sailing through a gauntlet of central bank meetings, escalating trade tensions and a historic meeting between the US and North Korea.

  • Is the Proverbial Christmas Market Rally likely to happen this year?
  • In the past 24 months the JSE All share index has been unable to lift itself out of its sideways channel. In the last two years it only managed to deliver a 1% move for investors.

  • The top four summer strategies to beef up your portfolio
  • I remember my childhood days like they were yesterday: Summer meant long road trips, cold ice cream, camping trips, park rides, and lots of outdoor games.

  • Global risk back on the agenda
  • Last week the SARB raised rates by 0,25%. There was no clear consensus before the decision with a little over half of all the economists surveyed predicting no change.

  • Key SARB Rate decision this week
  • Last week was rather volatile as local and international news kept the market under pressure. On the local front, the NUMSA strike had its first full week.

However, as the week progressed, I have changed my view. No end in sight The... ››› more
