To further enhance our webinars, we are launching a live chat function today. I stress, this is not a chat forum; the Internet already has more than enough of those. The JustOneLap live chat will only be open during a webinar, and will be specifically for those attending to chat amongst themselves and get to know each other, bounce ideas around and generally enhance the overall webinar experience.

Webinars are in every sense a distance learning affair, and they can leave you a little disconnected, so we hope that this chat function will help bridge the distances and liven up the webinars.

The live chat room will always be visible, BUT it will only open about 15 minutes before a webinar starts and will close shortly after the end of the webinar.  Questions for the presenters will still only be via the text box or audio (for those with a mic). The live chat is here.

In the week ahead Alwyn Burger takes our series on FX trading webinars to the next level as he covers moving averages for FX trading at 20h00 on Tuesday. Alwyn assures me this will not be a simple cross-over webinar as he plans to delve deeper into successfully using moving averages, and while this is an FX webinar, the concepts will be usable for any trading instrument. This will also be the first webinar using the newly launched chat function.

On Wednesday at 12H30 we have a webinar on investing internationally, following many requests from users on how to get international exposure.  We'll cover all the angles, from dual listed shares and international ETFs and ETNs that trade on the JSE through to directly buying international stocks such as Apple and General Electric.

The past week saw Paul Hansen (director at Stanib) doing an event webinar as part of the JSE Power Hour. His topic was the investment outlook, both locally and internationally.  It was a brilliant presentation and he makes a convincing case that current market weakness is just a soft patch within the larger bull market that is likely to continue later this year.

We also had another webinar from Keith Mclachlan as he takes us on a journey to understand fundamentals. This week the topic was Liquidity as a critical aspect of business.

Lastly, we published another 100 second tip last weekend - how to win the lotto without buying a ticket. Yes, somebody in the Free State won R100million last weekend, but the stark reality is that you have more chance of being struck by lightning than ever winning a big prize in the lotto. So do the math and win a holiday instead of wasting money hoping to win the lotto.

100 second tip - Win the lotto without buying a ticket

Liquidity: A critical aspect of business

JSE Power Hour - Investment outlook by Paul Hansen

Tip of the week

Start a second job (AKA income diversity)
No we're not talking literally working double shifts, getting home only to have to rush off to your second job. Rather, we're suggestion that you take what you love doing in your spare time, your hobby, and seeing if you can turn it into a second income stream.

For example, maybe you love photography and you have a special knack for photographing children. Why not offer a service taking pictures at kids’ parties? It would likely just be a couple of hours every so often, and not only would you be able to sell your prints to the host but also to parents of all the kids at the party.

With petrol closing in in the scary R10 level and thereafter seemingly certain to hit its all time high (see a chart of the petrol price here), what of investing or trading oil?

 

Just a year ago the choice was Sasol and for the brave Onando and for the very brave Sacoil.

 

But these days there are a number of options (ETF's, futures and warrants) for South African's to get in on the oil price and we're doing a live webinar covering the various alternatives

 

Monday 18 April @ 12.30pm

Book here.

Things are a little quiet at JustOneLap HQ with all the holidays around, but frankly, after a hectic first month we're enjoying the quiet. On that point, the first month has been fantastic judging by feedback received and the numbers across any metric we use; so a huge thanks to you all for helping to make JustOneLap a roaring success so far.
 
But even with the quietness enveloping us, we're finding time to do a couple of webinars.  The next one to look out for is on Thursday at 12h00, with Gary Stone sharing his knowledge about mechanical trading. Gary is now based in Australia and was out in SA in late 2010 to do a series of presentations. He knows mechanical trading better than most, having spent almost two decades refining his software. This is a not-to-be-missed webinar for traders at all levels.
 
We also have a webinar on Friday at 12h30 on Nil Paid Letters, those funny little things that arrive in your account suddenly one day as a result of a rights issue (I know your head is already hurting with all the jargon). This webinar will ensure that they never confuse you again and will also give you some great TLAs (three letter acronyms) to throw around at the next dinner party.
 
We're launching a new series of basic webinars for those just starting out in the world of shares and not sure where to turn. The first webinar will be on selecting a stock broker: what to look for and how to navigate through the maze of information to decide which broker is right for you (this webinar is on Wednesday 4 May at 12h30). The second webinar in this series is all about how to buy a share. This may sound simple enough, but there are actually lots of different options (including brokers, ETFs, auto investing, managed accounts, advisory accounts and more). This webinar is on Monday 23 May at 12h30.
 
The past week saw our first live event - JSE Power Hour presented by Warren Dick from Investor Monthly talking about Exchange Traded Funds. You'll find the webinar for on-demand viewing and downloading here.
 
We also had a webinar on investing or trading in oil. Yip, the price is flying once again and every time we fill up with petrol we wince at the cost. So get your own back and get into oil as an investment, or for the more adventurous, try your hand at trading the black gold.

We also have a new 100 second tip up on the website,  How much is that cappuccino?

 

Week ahead (and next week as holidays make it quiet)

We're launching SMS alerts this week. The alerts will be reminders to attend webinars that you've booked for. We currently send email reminders but quite a few users have commented that they're not always at their desks or on email, especially for the evening webinars. So 20 - 30 minutes before a webinar, we will send you an SMS alert, and here's the small print (nice and large): if you want an SMS alert you will have to enter your mobile number when registering for the webinar. We will only send you one SMS and then we'll delete your number from our system. We will not send you any marketing SMS's nor will we give or sell your mobile number to any third party.
 
In short, if you enter your mobile number when registering we promise to only send you one SMS and it will only be to remind you of the event.
 
There were some great webinars this past week, including an update of the momentum portfolio on Friday.  We're tracking this portfolio for the year and so far it's doing great as it out performs the market. There is a long way still to go, and we also tracking different entry and exit solutions, but so far we're chuffed, as we like nice and easy as much as we like outperforming, and this portfolio is doing both.
 
We also had the first of our absolute beginner series with the How to select a stock broker webinar. It was more complex than one may have thought, as it turns out there is a lot to consider - but we managed to distil it down to what matters and then we distilled it even further to a couple of important points.
 
The week ahead is also packed, starting with our second live event on Tuesday at 17h30. It is the JSE Power Hour and this time the topic is investing with commodities. Considering the collapse in commodity prices last week, the timing is either excellent or completely out of kilter - time will tell, but commodities are an important part of the investing game either way. If you are in Johannesburg and would like to attend the event live you can find booking details here.
 
Later on Tuesday evening I will doing a webinar on testing a system to find out if it works and makes money, a critical consideration in order to trust the system and hence have discipline. Also look out for the second webinar from Keith Mclachlan covering fundamentals on Wednesday evening - this one is titled Profitability, the aim of business.

Week ahead

Tuesday at 5.30pm - JSE Power Hour - How to invest with Commodities

Tuesday at 9.00pm - How to test a system to see if it works

Wednesday at 8.00pm - Profitability - The Aim of Business by Keith Mclachlan

A new 100 second tip this morning: Pay off your house in 7 years. Why wait 20 years? Yes 7 years requires some sacrifice and discipline, but a lot easier than many expect.

 

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) are all the rage these days.  So are commodities, albeit in part thanks to the collapse of silver from almost $50 to $35. So Monday sees us doing a webinar on investing in various different commodities such as oil, coal, silver, platinum and palladium - all using ETFs and ETNs.
 
On Thursday we have another JSE Power Hour session, this one delivered by Keith Mclachlan.  He'll be talking about analysing small and mid cap companies. You can attend the webinar or the live event (naturally both at 17h30).  Book for the webinar here and the live event here.
 
Friday sees the return of Garth Mackenzie, well known for his show on Summit TV - Traders Corner. He'll be talking about developing a trading plan - an absolute must for traders.
 
Another absolute must for traders was the webinar I did this past week on testing a trading system to ensure it works, and more importantly to ensure its profitability. The key issue here is that you need to trust the system to ensure discipline with your trading.

We also had the JSE Power Hour event on commodities this past week and Keith Mclachlan's second webinar in the fundamental series, where he covered the first of the four pillars - profitability. Keith really is making the complex task of understanding fundamentals a whole lot easier.

And don't forget to follow us on Facebook or Twitter (or both) for updates on new webinars and lots of links to other websites that'll help you know your money - grow your money.

Today we're two months old. I know, two months isn't exactly a date one throws a party for, but we’re really chuffed with the activity and feedback so far; so a huge thanks to all who have sent comments (good and bad) as well as everybody who has viewed a webinar (live or on demand).
 
The week ahead sees our first webinar on FX trading. You've probably seen the adverts promising untold riches, and likely before lunch-time.  Alwyn Burger gives us the low down on FX trading as he dispels the myths that are sold by the FX vendors.  Alwyn has been down this road himself and has the scars to prove it, so he is perfectly placed to help us miss the pit falls.
 
Today we also have another webinar in our absolute beginner series and the topic is how to buy shares. There are a number of different options and we'll give you the low down on all of them.
 
The past week saw webinars for traders and investors as Keith Mclachlan presented the JSE Power Hour on small and mid cap analysis.  He also gave us some of his preferred stock picks in the space. Today also sees the re-launch of his SmallCaps.co.za website, go give it a whirl.
 
Garth Mackenzie from TradersCorner.co.za did a traders webinar on developing a trading plan, which is an absolutely critical part of the trading process, and he covered risk management too.
 
We also had a webinar on investing in commodity ETF's and ETN's. Both commodities and the ETF/ ETN space is hotting up, and they complement each other perfectly with a fairly decent selection for investors and traders to choose from - gold, silver, platinum, palladium, oil and coal.

Our webinar vendor (Citrix) upgraded their software over the weekend and the major change is an upgrade to the GoToWebinar app. You will automatically be prompted to download the newer version of this software. This one-time download and upgrade process may take a while for customers with slower connections, so we recommend that you log in a few minutes early to your first meeting or webinar this week.

 

There is a small chance that some users may experience a firewall issue - this absolutely should not happen but if it does, you'll find the hep docs here. Lastly, they have updated the iPad app so you can now view webinars via your iPad. The app is free and you can download it here.

 

In the past week Alwyn Burger presented his first webinar on FX trading with a basic introduction to this topic. If you have any interest in the high risk world of currency trading then this is a must view webinar, as he points us around some of the pits falls and helps us understand some of the basic need-to-knows when trading FX.

 

We also had the second in our absolute beginners series with a webinar on How to Buy Shares. We looked at the various different options from full service to DIY brokers, unit trusts, ETFs, FNB's Share Builder and Standard Bank’s Auto Share Invest.

 

Looking to the week ahead, we have a webinar on Tuesday at 8pm about the various new ETFs and ETNs that have come to market in the last month.  There are five in total, with some real innovation and new underlying assets such as Africa and coal.

 

On Wednesday at 1pm we have scheduled another webinar in the absolute beginners series - Dividends: The best part of investing. Dividends are often an ignored part of investing, but they are important and can significantly add to ones returns (have a look at an older webinar - Constructing a high dividend yield portfolio).

Week ahead

Tip of the Week

If you're going on holiday and nobody will be in your house while you're away - turn your geyser off. It is the biggest user of electricity in your house and if nobody will be using the hot water - stop making hot water.

Don't you love the sound free money makes as it hits your bank account? OK, it’s not really free and it doesn't actually make any noise, but still, it's a wonderful thing when I get an email from my broker informing me that dividends have arrived in my account. Far too often ignored, dividends are one of the really powerful secrets of investing.  We did a webinar about them this past week in our absolute beginners series - Dividends: The best part of investing.

There are two new webinars to look out for in the week ahead. Keith Mclachlan continues on his journey to help make fundamentals as simple as possible and he's covering Liquidity: A critical aspect of business this week, on Wednesday at 20h00.

On Thursday at 17h30 we are webcasting another live JSE Power Hour event presented by Paul Hansen (Director at Stanlib), who will be presenting the house view on the current economic outlook. A great presenter, Paul is always worth listening to. As with all live events, you're welcome to attend the actual event, booking details are here.

This past week we also had a look at the recent new issues of ETFs and ETNs. May saw five new ones listed, covering a diverse range (coal, property, Africa and two multi-asset class ETFs), and we delve into the unique points of each one.

Tip of the Week

The old joke goes: how do you double your money in the quickest time?
Fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

But here's a useful and easy equation that tells you how long it'll take your money to actually double in value: the rule of 72. Take the expected rate of return (growth rate) and divide it in to 72; the answer is close enough to how many years it'll take for your money to double in value at that rate of return.

So, for example, if your investment grows at 12% a year, then 72 divided by 12 = 6 years for your money to double in value.

I am a big fan of moving averages in my trading. They're nice and simple and yet they tell us lots.  Alwyn Burger took moving averages to a whole new level in his Trading FX with moving averages webinar last week. He'd promised us no cross overs, and boy was he right!  He introduced some new concepts, including a rhythm indicator using moving averages that I am looking to include in my trading. This is a not to be missed webinar for all traders even if FX is not your thing (it isn't mine).

The week ahead includes a webinar at 20h00 on Tuesday on The 6% trading rule. I first came across this in Alexander Elder's book Come into my Trading Room; the concept is simple enough and yet potentially very powerful.

For those interested in (or those who know nothing about) listed property as an asset class, we have another JSE Power Hour event on Thursday at 17h30.  Craig Hallowes of Fortress Asset Managers will look at investing in property as well as the two property ETFs (PropTrax and PropTen). Property is often neglected by investors and Craig will take us through the ins and outs. As always, if you are in Johannesburg you can attend the actual event by booking here.

We also had another webinar in our absolute beginner series last week, covering investing internationally. Many investors are keen for international exposure but aren't sure how, so we looked at the various options out there (some very simple).

We also have a new 100 seconds tip, this one on debt. We all have some debt, the trick is knowing the good from the bad and making sure we're getting rid of the bad.

Thirty-two! Depending on how old you are, that's either a big number or a small one. For us at the JustOneLap head quarters, it is the number of webinars we have uploaded in our first three months. That's some 20 hours of viewing already and if we keep going at this rate we'll have a thousand videos and two weeks solid viewing by 2020 (you'd get square eyes after that). So you better get watching or else you’re going to be left behind.
 
To make it easier to find the webinars, we've got all the fancy categories (investing, trading and how to) but we're also creating a tag cloud so that you can find videos on stop losses, ETFs, fundamentals, system design, technical analysis, the absolute beginner series and more.
 
The absolute beginner series is the perfect place for those just starting out.  It covers both investing and trading and is growing by the week.
 
The week ahead is packed. On Tuesday at 12h00 we have our second webinar from Gary Stone. Now based in Australia, Gary is an expert on mechanical trading system, having designed the successful SPA system. This webinar will focus on the first steps you need to take to develop a mechanical trading system.
 
On Wednesday at 20h00 we look at the 6% trading rule. First proposed by Alexander Elder, it helps to reduce overall risk in a portfolio and ties in with the 2% stop loss webinar we did a few weeks back.
 
Then on Thursday at 12h30 we discuss PE ratios: the good, bad and ugly. Yip, we all know about PE ratios, or at least we've heard of them. But what are they really? How do we use them? And perhaps most importantly, what are the traps?
 
This past week saw Craig Hallowes of Fortress Asset Managers doing a live event webinar on listed property and their two property ETFs (PropTrax and the newly listed PropTen). It was a great introduction to property as an asset class and you'll find the video here.

Week ahead

Tuedsday at 12pm - Develop a mechanical trading system

Thursday at 12.30pm - PE ratios: the good, bad and ugly
