The S&P 500 is arguably the most popular stock Index.
It contains the companies most widely owned by individual investors.
It also accounts for roughly 80% of the overall value of the stock market in the US.
And it's been a boon for investors who have held in their portfolio over the past decade.
But the era of high returns could be ending.
Let me explain…

I sometimes imagine the stock market as a constant humming. Not the hubbub hum of an open outcry trading floor, nor the electrical buzz and click of servers and machines, but the whine of millions of voices guiding billions of dollars, rand and rupees into bets on global business profits, economic scarcity and the future direction of mankind. It's the droning roar of the engine that powers the wor... ››› more
In July this year, I pinpointed 3 green lights for its rally to 4,600. And have you seen recently it's been trading at around 4,681
The price has shot right through the price target and then some.
At first, I was going to just bank my profits and run…
However, I've just been alerted another 3 MAJOR buying signals.
And now my SP500 price target just got bigger, better and even mor... ››› more
Q. “I have read that there will be a Bitcoin Halving process taking place this month. I guess I have three questions I was hoping you can help answer. What is Bitcoin Halving, bitcoin blocks and when will it end?”
A. These are all great questions as we are expecting to have the next Bitcoin Halving this month (May 2020).
Bitcoin Halving is a process where the number of Bitcoins... ››› more
This is normal for a newbie trader.
You've just gone through a winning streak where you've banked three winners in a row.
At this stage you start to feel like you own the market where you think you've cracked the code to successful trading.
You then decide to bet bigger than you ever have.
Once you enter this frame of mind, you'll see that you can destroy your portfolio very quickl... ››› more
It is every trader's goal to be able to accurately predict where markets are heading.
And it's been my mission this year to find a reliable indicator that can predict where the JSE ALSI Top 40 is headed.
After plotting a whole bunch of indicators, relative strength oscillators and indices, I think I've done it.
And it's all thanks to Japan.
Today I'll discuss this predictor, wh... ››› more
Since 2015, gold has climbed higher and higher.
From $1,047 up to $1,377. If you've been a Trading Tips member since then you'll know, almost every gold article in the last three years have been strong buy predictions.
And, they've been correct 90% of the time.
Today I have a new gold prediction…
I believe the gold rally has now come to an end.
It looks like it's in big trou... ››› more
For the first time in 19 years, Africa's biggest grocer (Shoprite) reported its first annual earnings decline.
With the Listeria outbreak, the higher fuel prices, the increased VAT, the ongoing strikes, 489 armed robberies and the ever-weakening rand this decline was inevitable.
Even Chief Executive Pieter Engelbrecht mentioned “the toughest (year) that I can recall”.
In term... ››› more
“How much money do I need to start trading for a living?”
You've asked this question before. Maybe when you signed up to MoneyMorning, Trading Tips or when you made your first trade.
How much do you need to start trading for a living? Well, this purely depends on you and the lifestyle you want to live.
Do you want to spoil your spouse and take her to a restaurant once a week of her c... ››› more
You've heard it takes 21 days to form a habit and one day to break it. This is a myth. It's always unwise to assign a number in general to everybody.
But I do agree that it can take one day to break a good habit.
For example. Let’s say you stopped smoking for 6 months. And you feel loud and proud as you tell your friends and family. But then New Year’s came and you saw everybody having... ››› more
This week has been fascinating ! We found out that Scotland has decided to stay married to the United Kingdom.
And so, no independence for old Scotty!
And while we're talking about rocky marriages, Heineken decided to reject the buy-out offer from SAB Miller because they want to keep their brand in their family.
In fact, I wrote an article on Money Morning on how my Red Hot Trader's ban... ››› more
Last week Thursday, I saw a trade line up on SAB Miller. I told my Red Hot Traders to buy SAB Miller at R607.30 and put their take profit at R630.22.
This means if it hit the take profit level, they would've banked a 37.64% gain!
By Friday it was lingering around the entry just as I expected - I anticipated we'd have to hold on to our position for a few days, before it reached our take profi... ››› more
When it comes to trading the markets, there are a million different ways to make money.
For example some traders, like me, are happy to trade the shares we'd invest in. And take up to three months to make triple digit gains. Others prefer to look for the really fast moves in the market.
The kinds of moves where they can literally make 15%, 30% even 64% in just a matter of days.
Now if th... ››› more
This week, we've seen our market plummet over 2%.
It's times like these where it's best to preserve our hard earned money and prevent unnecessary losses.
So in this video I'm going to show you how I'm starting to look for high probability short trades for you…
In this trading video I show my Red Hot Trader subscribers how I'm only looking for shorts now and where I expect the ... ››› more
Recently, while having a drink after an action cricket match in Sandton, one of my team mates, Albѐ – a man with an ability to spin a cricket ball a ridiculous amount and a real passion for trading the markets – told me that he’d read a report talking about a great “pair trade” opportunity.
Pair trading is a great way to profit in uncertain times
