You don't need to be rich or smart to make money in the stock market.
You don't need fancy qualifications or an extensive network of informants.
Sometimes all you need is to go against the crowd.

But not investing in small cap shares is probably the biggest mistake an investor could make…
The biggest mistake you co... ››› more

Since the mid-1970s, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has controlled the price of oil... Cutting production when it got too low and opening up the floodgates when the price got too high.
That's what the world expects OPEC to do. That's what OPEC has always done.
But for once OPEC is defying all logic…
OPEC's seemingly illogical move will send the oil price... ››› more

“Francois, I'm no investment expert, but I immerse myself in economic and household data everyday. And I just can't see what it is that's pushing growth for companies any further. Where is the stock market going to from here?”

When I was still only a kid at school my dad one day sat down and had a talk with me about savings. You know, the whole “put some money in the bank every year and save for a rainy day” speech.
