Q. “I'm trying to decide whether the MATI Trader System Programme or Red Hot storm Trader is better for me. Can you please tell me the difference between the two and what I would get with both?”
A. The best way I can describe the two is this.
The MATI Trader System Programme is a complete online trading programme where I reveal my one and only trading strategy I have used for t... ››› more
“Timon, I'm 54 years old and do NOT have years on my watch to learn how to trade. Apparently the MATI Trader System Programme is a good starter pack for someone like me.
Could you tell me some solid reasons why I should own the MATI Trader System Programme and how it's performed in 2020 alone?”
~Richard Netz, CPT
A. Before I answer this… I just want to mention to new memb... ››› more
Q. “I've just started trading Bitcoin and I have two questions regarding the online wallet where I store my coins.
First - Can you please tell me what the difference between a private and a public key is.
Second - Can I get my key back if I lose it or misplace a key?”
A. Whether you’d like to deposit, withdraw money and then exchange Bitcoins, the process all ... ››› more
SA's in a recession. The first quarter of 2020 saw a 2% decline in GDP. The SA Reserve Bank expects the second quarter to show a whopping 32.6% decline in GDP.
This is a full blown recession, and to try and cushion the blow we're now seeing the lowest interest rates in SA's history.
The prime interest rate is at a mere 7.25% compared to 10% at the end of 2019. That means a repayment on a R... ››› more
Q. “Hi Timon, I'm still deciding whether I should add crypto-currencies in my portfolio. Can you maybe list a couple reasons why it's important?”
A. I think with the ever changing and challenging economy, more and more people are adapting to new ways to make, invest and preserve money.
Here are my 10 reasons to add crypto-currencies in a portfolio:
• CHEAPER – It is a chea... ››› more
It's very hard to make sense of markets right now.
On the one hand, it's crystal clear the economy is in a mess. Unemployment is even higher than the worst of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008. The damage done by lockdowns cannot be easily undone.
On the other hand, governments have pumped unprecedented amounts of money into the system and the market seems to be on an unstoppable rise. J... ››› more
Many investors rush for the exit at the same time, causing a whip-saw effect in asset prices.
The Rand is particularly vulnerable to this as one of the major currencies.
Emerging market (EM) investors can use it as a proxy for less liquid EM currencies, and use it to hedge as it has the benefit of straddling trading hours in parts of Asia and America.
There are two ways for you to get ... ››› more
Earlier this year, I wrote about IOTA's Coincide project, which will essentially solve the crypto's “centralised” problem.
You see, up until now, IOTA relied on something called the Coordinator, which ensured its network ran smoothly and efficiently. By using the Coordinator, IOTA wasn't truly decentralised as cryptos were set out to be.
Two weeks ago, IOTA announced that specificati... ››› more
Central banks have vowed to do what ever it takes to ignite economic growth.
Growth is the only thing that will address the Covid-19 unemployment crisis facing the world.
That means there will be a lot of cheap and seemingly “free” money thrown at this problem.
We have several central bankers talking this week and our own monetary policy committee is due to make an interest rate an... ››› more
Just how a money-market account pays you interest…
And just how certain shares pay you dividends…
Cryptos can generate investors a passive income too!
It's not known as a “crypto dividend” or “crypto interest”…
Prediction: These two digital currencies will lead the crypto resurgence

I received an email the other day from David Deebs…
I'll leave you with the question he asked which I'm sure will resonate with a lot of my Trading Tips members…
“Timon, I’m still umming and ahhing whether this Red Hot Storm Trader Service is what I’ve been looking for to generate an extra income for my future. I think the final decider will be when I see WHY this... ››› more
Everyone has favourites. A favourite food. A favourite colour. A favourite vacation spot. And, even though you'll never admit it, some people even have a favourite child.
For me, this pertains to the world of stocks too.
So, what is that one stock? The one I just have to hold no matter what anyone says?
Well, it's a company that, for the longest time, operated in the shadows of its mai... ››› more
It was quite a week for airline stocks.
It started with the announcement from Warren Buffett that Berkshire Hathaway had sold stakes in four major US airlines: United, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines.
This is an exceptionally uncharacteristic move from the legendary value investor.
Firstly, Buffett is all about “buy and hold”. He rarely sells investments unless, the prospect... ››› more
On 24 February 2020, I sent out an article:
Coronavirus + Eskom + Moody's + Chart = Rand disaster
At the time the South African rand was trading at R14.20.
I predicted that the USD/ZAR would move to the first target at R16.00 within a couple of weeks…
This was due to the following factors at the time…
• The Coronavirus was declared by the WHO as a global health emergency. ... ››› more
Warren Buffett has a famous quote: “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.” As with many great quotes, there's a great deal of wisdom packed into those few words.
And today, I've found the opportunity that perfectly puts Buffett's quote into practice.
Here are its features:
1- Your capital is tied up for a maximum of just three years
2- You stan... ››› 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
The world's eyes are on the United States this month.
Health officials are currently monitoring over 8,400 potential coronavirus cases in the US.
There have been 88 confirmed cases of the US Covid-19 and 2 deaths in Washington.
And last week alone, the Dow Jones Industrial Index (Dow Jones) fell more than 12% in just a few days…
This was the biggest drop for the largest stock exch... ››› more
Buying a stock is only the first part of investing… Selling, and knowing when to sell is an even harder part.
Especially when the markets are in trouble.
And boy did we just have a tough week… with the JSE (and most global stock indices) down 10%+ on the back of the world economy.
But does this mean you should sell your shares and head for the hills?
Probably not… But let's h... ››› more
Last week was a scary time for most investors as global markets racked up new records for the fastest 10% pullback in history. The worst weekly decline for the American indices since the 2008 financial crisis. And, the biggest single day decline for most markets as the bottom fell out of the market.
These concerns are over the impact to global growth from the shut down and restrictions in Chi... ››› more
As a professional soccer bettor, I am always looking for others ways to make money than just betting on a win.
With soccer being such a low scoring game, a late equaliser can deny even the best judgements of a potential winning bet.
That's where the under/over goals market comes in.
And the best part is, I've compressed this little known secret into three simple steps that have consist... ››› more
