  • Facebook's share price is still falling… Should you buy the dip?
  • It's been a tough start for equity markets this year. Last night the Dow fell more than 600 points, which is the worst decline yet in 2022. And that's saying something. As I warned in November last year (near record highs for the tech-heavy Nasdaq) higher inflation numbers will put pressure on growth stocks. The Nasdaq composite fell another -2.9% last night. That means the index is now down -1... ››› more

  • Why a Joe Biden administration is good for a global and local market rally!
  • “Timon since Joe Biden won the elections, do you think it is another reason why we can expect the American markets to help the JSE rally from here?”   A. Oh absolutely… In fact, when Joe Biden won the elections, that week was the start of both a local and global rally.   And in just one month, the JSE and the American markets broke out of their downtrend, and have been edg... ››› more

  • Top Trading questions this week…
  • Q. "Timon with Joe Biden becoming the next president, what are your thoughts on energy and oil prices?"     A.

  • The BIG Story Investors Missed During the US Election
  • Last week was crazy for all sorts of reasons… Bitcoin hit $16,000 - the highest level since 2018. The JSE rallied over 7%.

  • This might be the BEST thing you read today…
  • 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

When I went to back-test the US stock markets over the last 23 election years, what I found might surprise ... ››› more

  • America is going to hell - And the South African rand is about to rally!

  • Investors are looking left… when they should be looking right
  • The only thing on investors' minds right now is the US election. At the time of writing the final votes have yet to be tallied. Right now, many battleground states are still up for grabs, with Pennsylvania looking like the key to victory. Trump has already claimed the win and approached the courts filing multiple lawsuits in most of the swing states. He's demanded a recount in Wisconsin. A... ››› more

  • How do elections affect the stock market?
  • Right now everyone's talking about the US presidential elections. While the US president doesn't directly affect us - what happens to the US economy affects the entire world. So, there's definitely some merit in keeping an eye on the Americans… Similarly - in 2021 we'll have local government elections again in SA as well. So how do elections affect the stock market? And is there anything... ››› 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

  • Do you feel like your investments are trapped in South Africa? I have a solution!

  • JSE set for stimulus induced rally this week
  • Emerging markets and the JSE should continue to grind higher on the back of renewed optimism over stimulus packages from the US. President Trump has less than 3 months to “ensure” a win. He is pumping further stimulus into the US economy. On Saturday he signed a few executive orders, one of them to defer payroll tax deductions, hinting that they will be scrapped anyway. The recorded am... ››› more

  • Gold rockets through $2000 per ounce
  • I think we can all agree. 2020 is completely nuts! In the last week, we saw a nuclear-sized explosion in Beirut, after 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate flattened the port city. Trump is trying to force Chinese-backed TikTok to sell its US interests to Microsoft (with the US treasury getting a slice of the action) in what has to be the strangest M&A deal in history. And we have both the te... ››› more

  • Why the oil crash is far from over
  • 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. At first, I thought this was just a glitch on my trading platform. But then, just minutes later, it was the breaking news event of the day. When I did the research, I realised that the demand f... ››› more
