Really have no experience or knowledge but would like to get started on this for real in a month or 3.

Lots of the shares are currently in the red, the vast majority of them.
The JSE was a nightmare this week down 2% today.

That's horrible so much so it scared me.

2 months worth of gains lost in a single day.

That depends on what stuff.

In my opinion it's a case of the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.

Big companies (too big to fail) style companies are on special now. Your Capitecs your Curro's you STX40's your DBXWDs they are all good buys for me at this moment.

More experience people will be able to answer that but personally I don't think that is the primary reason the world markets was down today so something bigger must have triggered it.

Maybe @Hamster knows...

JSE closed sharply lower on Tuesday as global concern about a possible British exit from the EU spooked markets, ahead of the US Federal Reserve’s rate decision on Wednesday.

Brexit fear if I had to guess (see you already linked it). I do not bother too much with news of this kind because it causes "panic" and knee jerk reactions.

Combine that with the Rand losing some value (last I check we were at about R15.30 to the USD), the optimism of surviving a downgrade eroding, day to day ANC kark, three consecutive days of shootings in the USA....the world is just not a happy place.

That's my opinion anyway.


Personally I use times like these to stock up on more bond ETFs etc. that can weather the storm a bit better.

The JSE being g down tomorrow for about an hour - that's to recalculate futures. Doesn't affect anything really.

Well, I spent R50 and change in one of these baskets just to have a little bit of interest (the demo money does not hold my interest in the least).

Thought it would be a good place to get started and play.

haha.

I actually removed a bunch of the stuff from the basket before purchasing, already had around R100 DBXWD so now there is a wall of companies.

I also bought R2.11c worth of shares in Adcock Ingram just to clear my available funds Big Grin

I would prefer an excel type view to see what is going on there though, oh and just like the demo money, a bunch of red numbers although value has gone up a whole 0.22% since purchase at around 9:10am

Nice!!! -> If you go to reports in EasyEquities and export a Google finance sheet then you can import that into your google finance portfolio, its not excel, but it does have a graph and some alternative insightful views

Thank you for the tip

Quoted so I can find it easily in a month or so when there is actual data for me to look at Smile

...one of the main reasons I moved my ETFs (and possibly my TFSA in the near future) to ABSA. The UI is just more usable and doesn't look like Candy Crush Equities  Tongue 

Google Finance only takes you so far and is not under active development. It is a great tool but who knows when Google will finally decide to kill it.

MarketWatch and Bloomberg do have watch list features but I never took to them.

I really hope Google doesn't end this.

I am in love with it.

Cant we make thread here and email it to Google asking Google to please not give up. It's a life changer.
