I feel like I'm in a dream.
In the span of two weeks we've have good news overflow the markets.
We had Joe Biden win the elections. Then a few days later, two vaccines come out to end the Covid-19 pandemic.
And both local and global markets have rallied over 4% in that time.
And when I went to my charts, I saw a commodity that is ready for an 18% rally.
I'm talki... ››› more
Q. "Timon with Joe Biden becoming the next president, what are your thoughts on energy and oil prices?"
A. For a short answer, I have never been more bullish (positive) with oil and the energy sectors.
You see, with the Donald Trump administration there were ongoing trade wars and tension with China over the last four years.
And for this reason, we ke... ››› more
Just one week ago, I was feeling very bearish and down with the markets.
I thought Donald Trump would stay president until 2024. I thought we weren't going to see any signs of a vaccine. And I thought South Africa would head back into lockdown.
Boy was I wrong. And I couldn't be any happier with being wrong.
Before we knew it, there was a massive change of hearts in the markets this we... ››› more
Last week, was a wild ride.
We had a global sell-off in stocks and currencies due to:
• The nail-biting election between Trump & Biden
• Major dollar weakness with the lack of confidence in America
• A resurgence in COVID-19 cases to new highs in Europe and America
And while all hell was breaking loose, the South African rand was on fire.
In fact, last week it broke below ... ››› more
Q. “Hi Timon, with the gemors going on in South Africa, I really want to just be able to trade overseas. Could you please tell me how I can open an offshore trading account, how much money I'll need and which brokers are the easiest to trade with?”
A. I fully understand where you’re coming from.
It’s not safe anymore to keep your money in just one place – especiall... ››› more
Election, Stimulus, Resurgence and Rectangle.
These four words, could be the underlying reasons for a major Dow Jones crash.
I'm sure you felt things were starting to get better, economically, socially and mentally.
We were wrong…
The next COVID-19 wave has already hit America and Europe, and it's a matter of time before it comes back to South Africa.
And I'm d... ››› more
I just want to fill you in with the potential profits you could have banked in the last month alone.
On 17 September 2020, Trader X spotted that the South African Rand (USD/ZAR) was trading in a range between R16.40 and R17.70 for a couple of months.
On the same day, his 17 year proven trading system alerted the USD/ZAR was dropping in price BUT on weak volume.
This signalled a great b... ››› more

Q. Timon is the Average Directional Index indicator a good one for determining the trend for the JSE All Share Index? What are your thoughts?
A. You know Mark, I wish I got more questions with regards to indicators…
I know I am a breakout trader by profession, but I love to analyse using other indicators when looking at the charts.
Before we do the analysis, I need to let my readers ... ››› more
“Where should I put my money to generate a decent return in a year?”
This is pretty much the most common question I get asked from people who want to make a consistent income.
If you put your money in the bank, you're lucky to earn a mere 5% annual return. However, if you consider the inflation rate and the costs to pay, it drops down to less than 2%.
If you invested your money in ... ››› more
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

The rand has been extremely volatile this year, ranging between R14/USD to over R19/USD. Recently, the currency seems to have found a range between R16.40/USD and R17.20/USD. This stability may be short-lived however as the rest of the year will likely prove turbulent.
Overseas, we have the US election looming in early November. It's set to be one of the most contentious in recent memory. Thou... ››› more
Q. “Hi Timon, I have a full time job and three kids. However I want to make money trading. One way I thought of how to do this, is to be a Forex EA. I was wondering if you can direct me to some charting platforms that can do the trick?”
A. Ahhh, so you want to let a Forex robot make you money?
This is probably one of the cleverest ways to make consistent money a... ››› more
Gold has had a fantastic run up this year.
In fact, over the past year we saw gold prices surge over 39% taking it to all-time highs at over $2,060 an ounce.
Best yet, we called it!
However, since the gold price hit my first price target at $1,960, in August, things turned very sour very quickly.
Just in the last week alone, we saw gold's worst weekly loss since November 2016.

Q. “Hi Timon, it's been a tough two months trading, with this sideways market.
Right now, I'm worried because I'm down 15% of my portfolio.
It's entirely my fault as I let my trades run down without a stop loss.
Do you possibly have a calculation that I can use to see how much I need to recover to get my portfolio back to what it was?”
A. Hi Andrew, yes it is most defin... ››› more

There is a constant debate that goes around the investing community with both local and global markets during the ninth month.
It's called the ‘September Effect'.
It's a well-known theory where prices perform worse, on average, compared to the performance for the rest of the year.
In fact, over the last 100 years, September has been known for the worst performing month in America.

“Timon, I'm 54 years old and do NOT have years on my watch to learn how to trade. Apparently the MATI Trader System Programme is a good starter pack for someone like me.
Could you tell me some solid reasons why I should own the MATI Trader System Programme and how it's performed in 2020 alone?”
