  2. I lost a huge deal of funds to a devious man I found on the internet. I understand that I should have seen the red flags waving at me prior to the loss of my wallet, I was only trying to make some residual income by investing in these cryptocurrencies but unfortunately I ran in to dubious scammers who whisked away 2.5 BTC from me. I didn't believe it at first until I after 24 hours when they stopped talking to me. I know there are many other people who have fallen victim to these kind of guys who need support, well I found my support in Binaryreap3r @ gmail com ... A honest man who helped me tirelessly to recover all my funds from smart scammers and now I am forever grateful to this man.
  3. How have those been performing for you over the past year ? Whats your plans for 2022 ? I have not made any investments into my tfsa this year yet and need some " grownup advice", I'm still totally wet behind the ears. Any thoughts on either S&P 500, MSCI World or 4IR ? I already have quite a bit in World and 4IR. Would I be better off making a payment into my tfsa and leaving the money in there for a bit to see what the markets do ? I read somewhere about a possible correction coming, so I'm a bit weary. Thanks.
  4. Gold and silver krugerrand coins can be great investments but their secondary multibagger market price often surpasses the coins' face value. These coins have a number of other names including South African gold coin, South African gold Krugerrand, or simply Krugerrand for short. It is the official national coin of the Republic of South Africa and has been since 1967.
  5. Hey guys, hope you are all well and have been surviving COVID. It has been a long time since this thread started, so I thought I would check in.... Today the price is reaching new all time highs again for 2021, currently at $69k for the day. This time last year the price was $16747, so there has been a significant increase in price. Along the way there has been some dips in price too, but overall, the trend is still up. This is the time of the year that we have all bee waiting for since the last halving. In previous bull runs there has been a lot of mania before the blow off top and the crash that follows. So far there is not nearly as much madness and craziness in the market as there was in previous bull runs. This makes me think that there is still more upside to go.... The main question that people are wanting to know is if bitcoin will reach the fabled $100k price this year, end of November / early December.... There are more and more well known people and companies (Tim Cook, Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Michael Saylor etc), getting involved in bitcoin, which is great, but the real FOMO madness has not started yet. I suspect that if bitcoin breaks $100k, then things are going to get absolutely mental. Every news platform will be broadcasting it, and we will get a ton of new people who want to get rich quick flooding into the market. Have any of you guys dared to get some exposure to bitcoin? The stock to flow model still seems to be holding for now, and if things happen similar to how they have before, the price will overshoot the $100k mark, before a correction. Nothing is certain....but it sure looks like things are going in that direction. The S2F model predicts $100K AVERAGE for this halving period (and based on floor model we reach $100K this yr). S2FX model predicts $288K AVERAGE this cycle. The price needs to get a lot higher to have that high price as an average, so lets see how far it goes. Locally we have for the first time reached a high of R1million per 1BTC in South Africa on 2 November already. This basically means that bitcoin has reached parity with the Rand. There are 100 million satoshis in a bitcoin, and 100 million cents in R1million rand. So lets see how crazy the next few months get, and if the price keeps going up into the new year, or if we peak sooner. Good luck!
  6. Hi, colleagues What do you think about property investment in Dubai? My friends bought a property in this city a few years ago. And now the value of real estate has almost doubled. I compared the prices on the website of a real estate agency in Dubai https://www.axcapital.ae/ Now I have accumulated a certain amount for investment, and I am considering different options. What do u think about this? Are there other investment options?
  7. Greetings all. Anybody here who can tell me why it would so hard to get funding to take over a running business, one thats been operating for 30 years with a well established client base and suppliers. Or someone that can point me in the right direction for applications to get these funds. Regards
  8. Investing in physical gold is always a good idea. It should always form part of your investment portfolio. But, Gold should be a long term investment. Do not buy and sell to make a quick profit. One can never predict the gold price in 5 or 10 years, but it has always shown great growth over the long term. Whenever, or wherever I can snatch up a 1/10th, 1/4, 1/2 or even full ounce at a good price, I do so.
  9. Any views on the prospects of PPC, EOH and Murray & Roberts shares and estimated valuation after 52 weeks?
  10. Hello I have an RA but we are looking to invest a bit more before we retire in 15 years or so (yes, we're also looking at crypto). Would buying gold and silver krugerrands in April (2021) be a good idea? I read somewhere that April is historically a good month to buy? What percentage profit could we make if we sell in 15 years? Thanks for answering my amateur questions
  11. To support economic recovery, government will not raise any additional tax revenue in this budget. The personal income tax brackets and rebates will increase above the inflation rate of 4 per cent. Government will increase excise duties on alcohol and tobacco by 8 per cent for 2021/22. Inflation-related increases of 15c/litre and 11c/litre will be implemented for the general fuel levy and the RAF levy, respectively, with effect from 7 April 2021. The UIF contribution ceiling will be set at R17 711.58 per month from 1 March 2021.

  13. Finance Minister Tito Mboweni is due to present the budget at 14:00 today (Wednesday) 24 February 2021. All eyes will be on finance minister Tito Mboweni when he delivers his much-anticipated budget speech in parliament on Wednesday afternoon. Mboweni is set to deliver his budget speech at 2pm. It come in the wake of shocking unemployment figures that were shared by Stats SA on Tuesday. The unemployment rate in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by 1.7 percentage points to 32.5% compared to the third quarter. This is the highest since the start of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) in 2008. Stats SA said the unemployment rate, according to the expanded definition of unemployment, decreased by 0.5 of a percentage point to 42.6% in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the third quarter. “The results of the QLFS for the fourth quarter of 2020 show that the number of employed people increased by 333,000 to 15 million, and the number of unemployed people also increased by 701,000 to 7.2 million compared to the third quarter of 2020, resulting in an increase of one million (up by 4.9%) in the number of people in the labour force,” it said. Among other things, Mboweni is expected to elaborate on measures undertaken to help the economy recover since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic more than 11 months ago. Any changes announced by Mboweni on Wednesday come into effect in April. Last month, he called for South Africans to send him their tips on how to improve the country’s ailing economy. The liquor and motor industries have asked for tax relief. Read More: https://www.timeslive.co.za/politics/2021-02-24-budget-2021-wishlist-heres-what-sa-hopes-to-hear-from-tito-mbowenis-speech-today/
  14. How much is your car insured for? How much do you currently pay? Who are you insured with? Did you claim before & how was the experience if you did?
  15. Anyone tried ArbitrageRetirement.com seems like a no brainer as each trade brings in a profit and they are simultaneously buying and selling bitcoin for a profit on each trade. I'd do it myself but it seems like you need considerable big amounts or fiat and crypto to make successful trades.
  16. Today the bitcoin market cap breached $1 Trillion at a price of just over $54k. This has been a fun ride so far, with plenty more drama to come I am sure....with just under 350% increase in $ value over the last 6 months. There seems to be growing FOMO in the air, and more institutional buyers are coming onto the scene. The retail market of us normal guys is getting flooded by big guys with deep pockets. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust bought 150% more bitcoin in January than was even produced by miners, and billion dollar purchases by Tesla, Microstrategy etc. is draining the market of bitcoin fast. For now, the trend is still up up up....and we are more than 10X increase in value since this thread started. Happy days!

    Never heard of it. For a high frequency trading bot I have setup Hummingbot which is created by traders for traders, and is open source and created with python. You can run it on your PC, or what I did was setup an instance on Amazon that can stay on 24/7 and trade. Hummingbot can connect via API to all the big exchanges, and I also have it setup to connect to ice3 locally. You can do Pure Market Making, Cross Exchange Market Making, Arbitrage etc. all the usual stuff. There is a bunch of great youtube videos by the guys who made it where they show you how to use its features. Check it out here: https://hummingbot.io/

    Anybody using it or know about it? I've setup two rules to make small trades and it seems to be working on their demo exchange. Thinking of linking Binance to it but not quite there yet. Also, if you were to run a trading bot would you use BRC or Tether or something else as the main wallet?
  19. Am do not know enough about crytpo as it stands but I am interested in getting my skin into the game. As we know the best way to do that is to put some money on it. What are some good Crypto ETFs ? By the way, I am almost just starting out and find comfort in ETFs, If anyone would like to talk in or out of anything or leave any other advice, feel free.
  20. The JSE doesn't exactly have the best of liquidity in the micro small cap sector, so that would be my reason for not buying NUT, will I be able to sell?
  21. Checking in again...the last 6 months have seen the bitcoin price heating up as predicted if the Stock-To-Flow prediction is anything to go buy. Bitcoin recently reached a new all time high of around $42k, and is looking like it might go higher... Stock to flow prediction: If the S2F prediction is anything to go by, the price could hit around $100k by the year 2022. Check a real time chart and other interesting charts at: https://digitalik.net/btc/ At the moment there seems to be a massive surge of institutional investors who are flooding into bitcoin, and adding it to their company treasuries. I cant actually keep up with all the institutional news about bitcoin so here is a table showing some company reports of bitcoin owned: Check the chart directly here: https://bitcointreasuries.org/ So we have now officially done 10X in terms of price increase since the start of this thread, when bitcoin was $4098, with the current price around $40k. Not bad...
  22. Simon Brown always says that before you buy any stock, you should clearly be able to give three reasons why you want to buy the stock, and be prepared to stay in the trade for as long as those conditions are valid. If you can give three compelling reasons, and there are no cautionary announcements on the stock, sure, go ahead and buy the stock. However, with any penny stock, it wouldn't be prudent to buy than 10% of your shares portfolio. Otherwise it's no different to gambling.
  23. Nutrional Holdings is a Penny Share and has performed poorly over the past few years, but is now making a profit and on the acquisition trail Is it worthwhile buying shares now and holding on for 3-5 years as it looks like there has been a turnaround and new board of Directors ?
