  • The energy coal market is SUPER hot right now?!
  • A year ago, banks were saying they don't want to finance coal mine development any longer. European countries were closing down coal power plants. It looked like there was little interest in the commodity going forward. But now the price of coal is booming. In October last year a ton of export coal sold for around $90. Today it sells between $300 and $400! That's a big change… ... ››› more

  • In the Mail Bag...
  • In our QA mailbox this past week... Q. “Hi Timon, I refer to the below track record… "I am a bit confused as I believe I am doing something wrong. My portfolio value is R85,000 and my figures for the above trades have the same results as a portfolio value with R5,000. Is this possible to achieve such results with a portfolio value of R5,000 and risk 2% at the same time? Thank you…” ... ››› more

  • Why the rising petrol price is here to stay
  • The petrol price in South Africa is breaking the R20 a litre level. December 2020 it sold for R14.26 a litre. That's an increase of 41.6% Sure - the 2020 level for petrol prices was a low base. Covid reduced demand and the oil price was really low. But the huge increases we're seeing now are hurting - and they'll definitely affect business as well. -------------------------------------------... ››› more

  • To buy or sell the JSE in November?
  • This month is a major one for South Africa… On 1 November we had the local municipal vote where we saw negative sentiment for both the rand and bonds. In fact, not only did the the rand fall over 1.1% versus the dollar, the nation's local-currency debt also dropped 1.2% in dollar terms. This weaker rand helped boost resources share prices, as our resources are exported in US dollars.... ››› more

  • Why Brent Crude is heading up to $80 a barrel!
  • I believe there is one commodity that can be seen as an indicator for a recovering world economy. Brent Crude… Think about it… We need oil to run just about anything nowadays. We need oil for transport, for electricity and to run massive operations. Last year, I was extremely pessimistic and expected the price of oil to drop to $30. Which it did… And this year, my analysi... ››› more

  • THE JSE IS AT IT AGAIN!
  • The JSE ALSI is at it again! As of last week, it broke through its side-ways range since January and hit an all-time high. There were three main reasons for this.

So President Cyril Ramaphosa, gave us the greatest economic giftand dropped the restrictions from Level 3... ››› more

  • Why oil dropping below $40 is a major threat to the global economy
  • To think, in 2011, Brent Crude was at $120 barrel. And today is barely hanging onto $40. This was all thanks to the Corona-crisis. In fact, we are now seeing a resurgence in Europe with new restrictions and lockdowns. And just look at who's contracted the virus. • President Donald Trump and the first lady • British Prime Minister Boris Johnson • Brazil's Jair Bolsnaro • ... ››› more

  • This could signal the end of load shedding - and a boost to private business in SA
  • Load shedding has been a headache for us all. If you hoped it would end thanks to maintenance Eskom did during lockdown - you were disappointed. As our economy has been opening up we've sporadically had load shedding, with a turn very close to the highest amount of reduced supply in SA's history. It's become clear that the solution to this problem likely won't come from Eskom alone… ... ››› more

  • Why you need to be wary of this accounting trick before you invest in stocks
  • Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic there was a ‘nerdy' accounting joke doing the rounds saying that soon we'd see EBITDAC - Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and corona. While there's no ‘official' accounting term like that - companies results do show the effects, the pandemic has had on them. And many are opting to call it ‘once-off expenses. Suddenly the ner... ››› more

  • On Monday, while I was doing my weekly market analysis, I saw something I've never seen before. For the first time in history, the US WTI (West Texas Intermediate) oil prices crashed below zero.
