In the last few months I've sent out a number of predictions on different resource companies.
And at the end of the first quarter, we managed to bank six winning resource company trades, generating over 200% in gains.
At the start of the second quarter for 2019, I have my eye on a new sector which I'm looking to trade and profit from.
Thanks to Moody's, Eskom and BRICs - Here's why I e... ››› more
Q. "Where can I find a live streaming international news service where I don't need to keep refreshing the website?"

Early in February this year, I sent out a prediction on the Brent crude oil price and why I expected it to hit $76.60.
Right now, the oil price is on par with the prediction as, last week, it rose above the $70 mark.
But something has changed…
In fact, I expect the Brent Crude price to rise even higher than I ever imagined. This is all thanks to Opec, five countries and a promising c... ››› more
Q. "Hi Timon, thank you for showing me what to do when I get an SMS from you. I took my first trade on Thursday and I must say, it's much easier than I thought. My question to you is, when my take profit level hits, how do I make sure I'm out of my trade?"
A. When either your stop loss or your take profit level hits, there are two ways to ensure you are out of your trade.

Over 90 days has passed for 2019, and the JSE is already up over 8% for the year.
This was mainly due to the ever-rising resource stocks, which make up a big percentage and weight of the JSE Top 40.
In fact, my Red Hot Storm Traders have managed to bank over 200% gains on six winning resource stocks this year alone.
If you missed this first quarter of profits, you have nothing to wo... ››› more
Q. “I have some Rebosis shares. The price has recently crashed from over R10 a share to around R1.62 at today's price. In your opinion is it worth buying at this level to try and average down, or is it better to sell and take the loss.”
A. This is a bitter pill to swallow but it must be said with your trading.
I personally exit any trades that are moving in the wrong dir... ››› more
South Africans are at the edge of their seats, with what's going on this year.
From the ongoing US-China trade war, never ending Brexit decision, South Africa going back into the dark ages, the spreading rumours that the US is about to enter a recession this year - and this is just the tip of the iceberg for 2019.
The worst is yet to come. And it all starts, and ends, with the rand.

A. When you receive a trading signal from me or from PickPocket Trader, the process is exactly the same.
You can take the trade by choo... ››› more

A troubled shareholder was running next to me on the treadmill at the gym yesterday.
He looked around 55 years of age and he was gunning it (running fast).

At first I said "slow down speed racer you're making me look like a lazy trainer." As he caught his breath, he told me how he invested in Asp... ››› more

A. I'll try to explain what an ECN is with an easy to understand analogy.

Every time I go to the grocery store, I need to make sure that I read the ingredients on EVERYTHING I buy.

What’s important to note is gold is, and has, pretty much always been a leading indicator for other precious metals.
In 2001 when Gold ended its downtrend, we then saw the start of a new bull market. Later, we saw other precious metals turn... ››› more
