  • I'm no Nostradamus - But the rand is in major trouble
  • The rand has really taken a beating this year.    In July I wrote an article, From Lockdown 4 to Jumanji - Here's why I'm selling the rand. I predicted that the rand would fall from R14.30 to R15.58.   This was due to local reasons such as the looting that took place, the slow vaccination roll-out as well as a bearish chart pattern.    And to catch you up, you... ››› more

  • From Lockdown 4 to Jumanji - Here's why I'm selling the rand
  • South Africa has gone from Lockdown level 4 to Jumanji in the span of two weeks. It's been nothing but pandemonium. Businesses are closed again! Looters are enjoying Christmas in July and residents are fearing for their lives cooped up in their houses. We may feel like sitting ducks, but at least we can take some kind of advantage of the one south African market that will most likely fal... ››› more

  • The Week Ahead - USD Strength on the Cards
  • The Rand weakened significantly last week as it failed to push through the R16 level against the USD. It's now in a flag pattern, which signals longer-term weakness is on the cards. In the near term, we should see the Rand strengthen back to around R16.50. With US elections a little over 4 weeks away, we could see general risk off sentiment as uncertainty of who will win weighs on investor... ››› more

  • Why I think there could be another 459% gain to be made as the Rand falls
  • The rand is once again in hot water. In August, we saw the currency drop from R15.00 down to R17.78 for the first time since 21 May 2020. And this is due to one main factor. We hit half a million cases of Coronavirus in SA, taking us to the top five infected countries in the world. It's clear the COVID-19 pandemic still has the power to cause a see-saw in market sentiment. And... ››› more

  • R13.95 to the dollar…? Here's why I think this could happen
  • It's been an absolute roller coaster for the rand this year. In January it was trading strongly at R14.50 to the US dollar. In late April, we thought it was the end of the rand as it traded at R19.00 to the dollar. And now, it's currently trading at R16.55. I believe there's been two main causes for the rand's volatility namely. Cause #1:   South Africa entering into ... ››› more

  • Invest in a global portfolio of shares with 100% downside protection in USD
  • Investing in the stock market today with 100% downside protection sounds too good to be true. That's because for every positive headline you read there are 4 negative ones signaling a strong pull back in the weeks and months ahead. And the recovery, post coronavirus lockdown is expected to be slow. But investors in the latest “risk-free” structured product need not worry what happe... ››› more

  • What is “DeFI” and why's it so revolutionary?
  • ‘Decentralisation' is a word you constantly hear throughout the crypto world. And there's a good reason for this… It forms the foundation of everything in crypto. The idea you don't need to rely on a central authority to make things work - be they financial transactions, contracts, proof of ownership, proof of identity… anything - is what crypto is all about. In traditional finan... ››› more

  • Buy the USD/ZAR before 11h30 today for a quick profit
  • The Rand has strengthened against the majors over the past few weeks, but it has lost momentum and can't break below a key support level. We have our third quarter GDP numbers out at 11h30. With trade war uncertainty that hasn't abated and the VIX (aka the fear gauge) climbing from below 12 to above 14, we should see the Rand weaken against the majors over the next week or two. When the ... ››› more

  • QE infinity and SAs last chance
  • Last week we initiated a long USD/ZAR trade as we believed the market was pricing in too many positives. After the sobering news from the medium-term budget speech, it promptly lost over 60 cents. Traders who used futures would have made over 30% as our initial profit target was reached in just over a day. The Rand is strengthening on the back of Moody's just reducing the outlook from s... ››› more

  • It's time to sell the Rand
  • The Rand has made a strong recovery against the major currency pairs over the past month. And faces several headwinds this week with the Mid-Term Budget Speech due tomorrow. There's also the Moody's decision and a slew of important data points from the US, Europe and the UK. These events have the potential to see the Rand lose 50c or more in the coming weeks against the USD. Look at t... ››› more

  • We banked 71% on EOH and 6.24% on our USD/ZAR and it's time to get back in
  • EOH's share price has pulled back and our stop loss at R24 helped us protect 71% of our gains. The share price has pulled back to R20.00 and the company has indicated the forensic inquiry has identified R1.2 billion in suspicious payments. This is not a massive number and signals that the turn around in EOH will materialize over the coming months as Stephen van Coller delivers on his strategy. ... ››› more

  • Why you should go long the USD/ZAR
  • The Rand has staged a stellar rally. Strengthening from above R15 against the USD to below R13.90. It came within half a cent of our R13.8550 target against the USD but the price is consolidating. It's time to bank our profits after a 6.24% gain, with gearing your gain could have been more than ten times larger. Trading the other way and going long the USD against the ZAR has good risk to rewa... ››› more

  • For the first time in 14 years, the Euro could be weaker than the US Dollar
  • What you're about to read will shock you… 1999 - The Euro came into existence in January which was the goal of the European Union and its predecessors since the 1960s. Initially there was a negative reaction as the Euro fell below parity (1:1) with the US Dollar for the first time. After, the dust settled and the EU was finding its feet with regulations, treaties and legislations, the E... ››› more

  • I was wrong
  • I was wrong about the rand. I thought it was going to go up to R10 a dollar, but I'm not going to cry about it. You can see looking at the USD/ZAR (United States Dollar versus the South African Dollar) weekly chart, a large wedge pattern formed from January 2016 up ‘till August 2017. A wedge pattern is known as a reversal pattern where the price wedges down into a triangle formation. And a... ››› more
