Big call Bennett

One of my favourite big call merchants is Clifford Bennett from Herston Economics. And last night on my Sky News Business Channel program SWITZER, he reasserted his belief that this would be a great week for the stock market — in fact it will be a very good year! — that gold would go higher […]

Want to get wealthier?

Now that the Melbourne horseracing carnival has come to a close and the number of the nation’s punters falls back to more normal levels, it’s timely to give you the good oil on how you should be investing, not punting, to become wealthier. I hate people who promise to make you rich. And I particularly […]

Boom on the Dow

Stocks in Australia will boom with the Dow Jones slamming on a 200-point plus gain smashing through the psychologically important 10,000-level. The great day was driven by bloody good economic news, but now we have to see it happen two days in a row! This is bad news for the bears who have been trying […]

Be grateful for big mercies

Now for something entirely different. Why does someone come to a website like this one? It’s simple. They want answers. They want confirmation that they can stop worrying and that normal life, whatever that is, will resume. Oh yes, and then there are those who are thinking that we couldn’t have escaped this economic and […]

Armageddon? Don't think so!

After a massive run up on the stock market which was over 50 per cent but is now up around 44 per cent since the March lows, the bears are coming out of their caves, again, to warn that Armageddon is just around the corner. To this negative speculation I have just one reply — […]

How scared should we be of a rate rise?

With everybody tipping an interest rate rise before the Melbourne Cup today, there’s one question that should be asked by everyone in debt. And that question is: “Just how scared should we be?” Right now, the maniacs who were predicting a 0.5 per cent increase on Cup Day have pretty well disappeared, but there are […]

Future watch

Last week, I suggested that the economy has become the main game and that’s why Wall Street and our stock market went up and down like a Latin lover’s rump! American economic recovery doubts took us down on Thursday and the 3.5 per cent economic growth number took us up and we should fall again […]

It's not timing the market but time in the market

The goal I set myself when I put my fingers to the keyboard is to tell my readers something they don’t know. I always hope that it will help them ‘wisen’ up — money-wise or business-wise. And you would love to think that your current column is always your best but I don’t know if […]

The interest rate cup

It was always going to be a big day for anyone worried about interest rate rises and now that the latest inflation data has been delivered, the best bet for the Cup next week will be to put your money on 0.25 per cent interest rate rise before the Cup and Bart Cummings for the […]

The key word is 'however'

With the stock market giving back some of its gains in recent weeks, there’s one really important word that has to be kept in mind whenever you feel negativity taking hold and that word is — 'however'. The Dow Jones managed to stay positive overnight but the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq couldn’t resist gravity, […]

Expect the unexpected

One thing I’ve learnt watching and commenting on stock markets and economies for over 25 years is that you have to expect the unexpected. And another lesson is to not get too excited by oddities such as the rise in the US dollar overnight or the fact that good corporate results are not triggering another […]

Testing the Wall Street rally

Wall Street continues to struggle with gravity with the Dow Jones having trouble with the psychologically resistant 10,000-level. This week will be another important test for the rally with more company results ahead. And some company reporting action locally starts to hot up with the likes of NAB, ANZ and Macquarie giving us their latest […]
