The Key Points

  • Satrix is winning on both fronts (the first being that you invested once-off, the second that you’ve been investing money each month).
  • Look at that oil price! This is what happens when the world is watching the birth-pangs of our newest nation. Or soon-to-be-newest nation. That’s my bet – ISIS/ISIL will take a little bit of Syria, and a lot of Iraq*, and then suddenly: the Islamic State of Iran and Syria/Greater Syria/the Levant (depending on which news agency you’re listening to).
    *Oh wait – they’ve done that already!
  • Here’s a map from the Economist:
