October Comment

2.16/Oct
Well we are in a MIGHTY BEAR MARKET and have been there for four years already.We can only reach this conclusion with hindsight.No wonder it has been so difficult to automatically make a profit!Taking the top 40 since November 2007,the capital loss on Anglo is -27% Amplats -42%,Billiton a measly 13% gain.Most of the other top 40 and second teir shares outside these showed a loss,dividends were cut or reduced to token amounts.Of course there have been mini runs in this time and some shares defied these circumstances such as Exxaro +80%,Kumba+100% SAB +56%. For a change to really occur countries will have to find answers to remaining really solvent and create growth opportunities.

1.1/Oct
WELL RESOURCE SHARES SEEMED TO TUMBLE  IN THE LAST FORTNIGHT ALONG WITH THE DOW.SURELY ONE MUST ASK WHY DID GOLD AND PLATINUM SEEMINGLY JOIN THIS TREND? AFTER ALL THEY ARE SUPPOSED BE A STORE OF WEALTH !
BOTH WENT DOWN BY ABOUT 20% IN VALUE!

THE ANSWER IS ACTUALLY THEY DID NOT FALL THAT FAR AS THE 
U S $  STRENGTHENED AGAINST THE EURO BY ABOUT 12% AS MOSTLY ALL RESOURCES ARE QUOTED IN U S  DOLLARS. THAT STILL LEAVES A FALL OF 8% OVER THAT PERIOD AS ORDINARY PEOPLE PANICKED,NOT UNDERSTANDING THE MECHANICS AND SOLD PUTTING DOWNWARD PRESSURE ON PRICES.THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS YEAR THAT PHENOMINON HAS PLAYED OUT.AS LONG AS NOT ENOUGH IS DONE TO STABILISE EUROPE THIS SITUATION MIGHT CONTINUE

GOLD IS LIKELY TO START INCREASING AGAIN SOON AS TREASURIES YEILD IS LOW AND NOT THAT SAFE.PLATINUM MIGHT TAKE A WHILE LONGER TO INCREASE IN PRICEAS DURING A RECESSION THERE MIGHT  NOT BE SUCH A GREAT DEMAND .

I must add that the South African Rand closely follows the Euro as these countries are our main trading partners.

September Update

Nouriel Roubini on Thursday 1 September issued a statement that the United States  won't be able to avoid a second recession,also that gold is in a bubble.
The markets that were wobbly then fell further on this  observation .I agree with the first obsevation as their politicians are proving that they are spineless and are only interested in re-election.As Ben Bernanke said their reserve bank can do so much more if the Fed had support from their government.Their polititians must be prepared to "bite the bullet" and do whats best for their country by increasing taxes whilst cutting social services,except for the very poorest.This is one weakness of democracy.I hope our own government will also take steps in the same direction.Socialism in any form has proved a failure so taxes should be broad based such as sales taxes.
-----------------------------------------
Gold, Platinum
So gold might be in a bubble,according to
Roubini.So what!I have been a trader for a long time and gold and platinum is the only thing the ordinary person can buy and keep to offset  the inflationary environment at the moment as governments try to get out of their messes by printing paper money with little or no backing!
 This is not a bubble that will break any time soon as gold has only kept up with inflation over the last twenty years.A good sign that it is not overvalued is the physical Indian marraige season now in full swing as they scramble to buy as much gold jewellery as they can.In the past when they don't buy and rely on heirlooms then we know it is overpriced as has happened in the past.They are very canny gold traders.
-----------------------------------------------
Gold and Platinum prices are going up in tandem at the moment

GOLD and URANIUM


The URANIUM price is shooting up and this makes many of the GOLD shares most profitable as most of the major producers  also mine uranium atthe same time as gold
AT PRESENT THE GOLD PRICE IS SLOWLY CLOSING THE GAP BETWEEN IT AND THE PLATINUM PRICE. THE REASON IS OF COURSE WORRY AS MOST OF THE WORLD IS IN DEBT,WITH NO END TO THE CRISES IN SIGHT.THE ONLY WAY THIS WILL EVENTUALLY RESOLVE ITSELF IS TO DEVALUE PAPER MONEY,WHICH NOW  HAS NO OTHER BACKING. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS NOW ONLY ABOUT $100.GOLD MINES HAVE SETTLED THEIR LABOUR PROBLEMS FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS AND AS WELL AS THE PRICE INCREASING OF GOLD SO IS THE PRICE OF MINES.DO ALSO KEEP THE SMALL CAPS IN MIND AS THEIR PRICES ARE INCREASING AS WELL.

I never write about politics,how ever Malema' utterings are have a serious effect upon our ability to raise capital  to develop our resources .No body wants to finance new ventures where nationalising might be a prospect in the not too distant future!
We have to look no further than other Socialist countries at present , our neighbour where new ventures have come to a complete stand still,namely Zimbabwe.
 Now the African National Congress say they are opposed to Nationalision,but they allow their youth leader
to utter such statements.One must ask one self why.
I have come up with some answers after research.
FIRST- AS ABOUT SIXTY PERCENT OF THE YOUTH IN OUR COUNTRY CANNOT FIND WORK and no party will be able to change that in the short term,the ANC is in danger of losing votes,so having a radical issue these utterances helps them continue voting for the ruling party.Even so they losing support as moderates move to more realistic parties.
SECONDLY Malema as youth leader is now 31 years old and has to vacate his post on reaching the age of 36,so these utterings are an attempt to prevent him from becoming a nonentity in the party.
No doubt he will be replaced by another radical,but then their allegiance will be to Malema as he then will have to be taken into the upper structure of the ruling party.
