"The best investment I've ever made..."

During the festive season trading volumes around the world dry up and market behaviour can become erratic and misleading. Therefore any detailed analysis I do right now is potentially erroneous. So other than saying that I am bullish going into 2020, I'm going to use this opportunity to draw your attention to another topic that I'm passionate about...the School of St. Jude in Tanzania.

The mission of the School of St Jude is to fight poverty in Tanzania by educating the youth of the country. My company ActVest has been a keen sponsor of St Jude for many years and of all the investments I've ever made, this is by far the best one. I also love to promote the school's work to others as they are always welcoming new sponsors.

But here's the really cool part. All the children who attend St Jude's are strongly encouraged to show their gratitude in the future by donating a small proportion of their income back to the school. So the children who's education I am paying for now, will take over my role as a sponsor in years to come. It's a brilliant self sustaining model and one that I'm very happy to be contributing to.

Now looking forward to 2020 and I'm expecting a bull market with the U.S. at its epicentre, as President Trump will be doing everything within his power to get re-elected. And I'll be doing everything I can to help you take full advantage of these circumstances.
