  • The biggest mistake you can make when building an offshore portfolio
  • I call it the “offshore investment conundrum”. Investors have no clue where to invest or what to invest in, leaving their cash exposed to unpredictable economic and political events. Investing in just any old offshore product will cost you time and more importantly, money. While I admire the ambition of investors to identify opportunities elsewhere, the fact of the matter is, over half of ... ››› more

  • Am I going to lose R45,000 in my CFD trade?
  • Here's a question I got from Tony last week: “I am new to Trading and having bought your Red Hot Storm Trader Service I am not sure what my loss would be if a trade went sour - I use your example below: If you buy 10 Sasol shares at R450 per share and at a gearing of 10 times, you'd only have to pay R4,500 (R450 X 10). So essentially, you're buying 100 CFDs on Sasol. You'll have an e... ››› more

  • Investing for attractive returns could be an investor's worst mistake…
  • Recently I came across an article on MoneyWeb with the headline, “Preference share offering 14.5%”. Preference shares returning 14.5%?
