MarketViews - September 2016 Edition
Natalie Mayer

Dear Readers

Welcome to the September edition of MarketViews.

Dwaine van Vuuren, the brains behind the formidably accurate Powerstocks Research and RecessionAlert.com, looks deeper into US employment and sees that despite positive non-farm payroll and civilian unemployment data, American joblessness is more widespread than previously thought. By examining the data for individual states, it is quite clear that stresses are building up. This is concerning due to the strong link between the percentage of US states with rising unemployment and the probability of US recession.

In his article this month, finance professor and regular contributor AJ Cilliers reports on the highlights of the book ’The Rules of Life’ by Richard Templar. Cilliers argues that several of these ’common sense’ rules could be usefully applied by investors.  Here he discusses five of Templar’s rules that could help to improve your investment performance.

We welcome back guest writer Nicole Cameron of Your Business magazine, who gives us the low-down on the connection between large sporting events and stock market movements, and shows us where to look for the potential trading opportunities that result.

Wishing you good reading and a successful month’s investing,

Natalie Mayer

Life Rules for Investors
AJ Cilliers
When I find myself in a mall or an airport with time to kill, I invariably head for the nearest bookstore. So it was that a recent airport delay led to the purchase of 'The Rules of Life,' by Richard Templar.
