gold bull market lives on
The Looming Gold Bull Market
By |
The yellow metal might not break out tomorrow. But it’s bound to happen. And it should create multiple new millionaires. So, while we wait for the bull market, let’s just go with the flow. There are still big profits to be made today.
Why Blockchains Will Eat the World
By |
Just like the railways revolutionised the movement of people and goods, blockchains will revolutionise the movement of data. Until now, any transfer of value required a middleman. This one simple change — cutting out the middleman — opens up possibilities no one thought possible.
Why the RBA Has to Cut Interest Rates
By |
Without consumption signalling that everything is OK, I don’t believe there’s any way the RBA will be raising interest rates. In fact, I think they’ll have to cut rates, regardless of concerns about high house prices.
A Challenging Guarantee
By |
When it comes to money, the word ‘guarantee’ conveys a sense of safety and assurance. The challenges facing Challenger — trying to generate sufficient return in a low interest world — is a global problem.
The ‘Pay Later’ Effect
By |
Consumption is, of course, a very important driver of the Australian economy. However, if wage growth continues to slow, and daily living costs continue to rise, Afterpay will become a key player in supporting discretionary spending — and the Australian economy.

Aussie Dollar Highs Amid Cautious Optimism
By |
The dollar creeped higher against the greenback overnight, even peaking over US 80 cents at one stage. It came as the US dollar slid lower, and an uptick in commodity prices. It has since slid back under the US 80 cent mark, but some analysts believe it will rise again.

Gold Shines Bright amid Global Uncertainty
By |
In times like these, filled with global uncertainty, provocative presidential tweets and rogue nations, commodities are waiting with open arms. Gold in particular, provides a shiny safe haven from a rickety marketplace.   
Gold’s War of Words
By |
The yellow metal’s soared 13% this year. Fundamentally, the story for gold hasn’t changed. It has rallied recently on geopolitical threats and a weaker US dollar. The US dollar remains in a downtrend and global tensions, while lessening, are still there.
Is Gold Set to Boom?
By |
Gold’s status as a safe-haven has endured the test of time. It has been through more economic crises than any other asset and has outlived them all. It has been used as a store of value for centuries.
Forget Bitcoin…Buy Commodities Instead
By |
I believe it’s best to stick with private assets that have stood the test of time: precious metals and commodities. They are less volatile than cryptocurrencies. Historically, commodities have outperformed during all wars. With tensions rising in North Korea and the Middle East, resource stocks are a no-brainer for now in my view.

Why Bitcoin Is Better Than Cash at the Bank
By |
We are caught up in a fiat currency system; where governments determine the value of your money, the banks and the government can do what they like. Whereas with bitcoin, banks can’t do what they like. And governments can’t control the value of the cryptocurrency either.
The Midnight Oil Can’t Be Burnt Forever
By |
Globally, we consume around 96 million barrels of oil every day. At this rate, worldwide reserves are estimated to dry up by 2039. Not far off at all. It’s the delicate balance of supply and demand that makes the crude oil price one of the best economic indicators. And for the past two years, it has been soaring.
Another Win for the ‘One Percent’
By |
Here come the feds to the rescue again. They’re offering a tax cut for the middle class. Not for us rich guys. No way! Under Team Trump’s tax plan, our business income, currently taxed at 35%, would be taxed at 20%. Hey, that’s good news for us. But how does that help the middle class? It won’t.
Bitcoin Makes a Surprising New Friend
By |
In spite of a few days of attention-grabbing headlines, bitcoin has bounced bank and traders in China are as active as ever. Even though Jamie Dimon claims bitcoin is fraudulent, the crypto has found an unlikely friend over at the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Why We Shouldn’t Let the Passive Investing Rise
By |
Passive investing is when you simply buy an index fund or exchanged traded funds. The fees are lower and this strategy tends to outperform many active managers. And because the market has been on such a hot streak recently, many active managers have been left in the dust. 
Why You Shouldn’t Emulate Institutional Investors
By |
These institutional investors have multiple degrees and years’ worth of experience. They really are smart, make no mistake. However in some respects, they have to face headwinds like size. And of course they’re all still human…I think, which means they also make mistakes.
