A permabear is someone who believes markets will fall no matter what the conditions on the ground look like. Given my very negative sla... ››› more

Historically speaking, high inflation combined with low unemp... ››› more

  • Three JSE small caps that could become acquisition targets before the year is out

  • What does the US inflation figure mean for your portfolio?
  • US inflation came in at 7% on Wednesday. This is so far beyond the US target rate of 2% it's terrifying. To give you some perspective about how big a miss this is, our SA target rate is up to 6%.
