The moving average convergence divergence (MACD) system is a trend indicator that helps us determine the current trend of the market and its strength.

Geopolitical tectonic plates are shifting around the world presenting trading opportunities to those observers keen enough to pick up on them. As well as the usual safe haven assets such as gold, the Swiss Franc and Japanese Yen, traders may not miss out on the opportunities presented by somewhat “riskier” assets, such as oil.

It’s hard for me to think of Tate & Lyle Plc (TATE) without immediately thinking “sugar”. However, in 2010 the sugar side of the business, including use of the Tate & Lyle Sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup brands, was sold to American Sugar Refining as part of a major restructuring of the company.
But as an investor I’m after a different kind of sweetness; the kind that comes from a reliable dividend which grows progressively over time, and in that department Tate & Lyle is still very much a player.
