So, is it time for you to hit the big red button? Is now the time to sell everything? ... ››› more

  • The Rand has recovered over 12%, now is the time to invest offshore
  • Many investors rush for the exit at the same time, causing a whip-saw effect in asset prices. The Rand is particularly vulnerable to this as one of the major currencies. Emerging market (EM) investors can use it as a proxy for less liquid EM currencies, and use it to hedge as it has the benefit of straddling trading hours in parts of Asia and America. There are two ways for you to get ... ››› more

  • Did you know there a number of problems that can arise when crypto trading or exchanging? Not all exchanges support the necessary coins or trading pairs.

  • 3 Checks to Protect Your Portfolio as Airlines Crash and Burn…
  • It was quite a week for airline stocks. It started with the announcement from Warren Buffett that Berkshire Hathaway had sold stakes in four major US airlines: United, Delta, Southwest and American Airlines.

  • Do this today so you don't lose more as the rand continues to flounder
  • R19.34! It's enough to make you sick. Because that, my friend, is not the price of a loaf of bread these days. Or even the cost of a litre of petrol. It's how much you would have to cough up to buy a single dollar on Monday morning. Shocked? I was too, when three days ago the ZAR touched its worst level ever! And the awful reality is, it's not about to rally back to R14.00... ››› more

  • Think you can't move money offshore with a local trust? Think again
  • Speak to any financial advisor with half a brain and he'll tell you to go offshore. Sure, South Africa may one day reclaim our early 2000 title of “investment darling of the emerging markets”, but it's not going to happen any time soon. Our problems are simply too big. There's is no quick fix to Eskom, our ever-increasing sovereign debt or our 29% unemployment rate. So yes, that means ... ››› more

  • If you missed the warnings signs on Steinhoff - don't miss them on this company
  • Since 2018 I've been telling investors that this company is in trouble. When I wrote about it in 2019, calling it Steinhoff 2.0, the share price was 862c. This week it was 59% lower at 352c. But instead of fixing its problems this company has kicked up its ‘dodgy' dealings by a BIG notch… Let's have a look. ________________________________________   Three Penny Super... ››› more
