Any idea on where to find the top companies in GLODIV? Is it equal weighted of market cap weighted? All I can find is that McDonalds is one of the top 10. Other than that, nothing... :-(
avatar
Great announcement! If this was a crypto stock your price would have rose through he roof right now. I always wondered when Platinum Wealth and EasyEquities would team up properly. Their easy to use platform combined with the wealth of financial information available on this platform will surely make an impact in South Africa.

A lil'something for those looking to start out with their investment journey https://platinumwealth.co.za/forum/Threa...y-Equities

What is this property tax business that everyone is talking about? (I'm renting atm, but want to buy a place).
avatar
They said nothing about TFIA/TFSA
avatar
I'm so loving my Ellies shares right now. Up 25% this month from 36c on 21 Jan to 45c today. And it's a steady climb - no bouncing. Totally awesome! :-)
avatar
Standard bank just announced the new STANLIB S&P500 Info Tech ETF. It's the Top 500 information technology companies of the S&P index. Could be a competitor to SYG4IR - Kensho technology index vs US IT index.
avatar
Did they announce what the new TFIA annual limit will be?
avatar
I thought it would be 16%
avatar

Question two of that report is one I agree with - "2. Do Capitec believe extending new loans to consumers who were only one day prior in arrears is both socially and financially sustainable?"
avatar
avatar
Viceroy’s open letter to Capitec is now live $CPI #JSE https://viceroyresearch.org/2018/02/20/v...o-capitec/
avatar
Hopefully L4L will shine before Friday - if we can end the week in green then I will be happy.
avatar
Sadly, it's not green. As usual, only STXQUA is up. Everything else is down again... :-(
avatar
When is the Budget speech and is Gigaba fired yet?
avatar
Hoping for a green JSE today

good riddance

Zuma: "It has been an honour that I will cherish for as long as I live. The ANC should never be divided in my name and so I have come to the decision to resign with immediate effect"

SABC livestream of Zuma addressing the nation is here: https://youtu.be/gEjmjfopPWo #Zuma #ZumaResigns

avatar
Presidency just issued a statement saying no media briefing will be held by JZ today & no official communication has been made by presidency on the matter.
avatar
Zuma responding to the decision by the ANC NEC to recall him at the Union Buildings at 10am.
avatar
The decision to recall Jacob Zuma was made after "constructive" discussions regarding the timeline of #Zuma's exit did not lead to a consensus #ANCNEC #Zuma
avatar
Nope
avatar
Who of you guys have used EasyEquitie's US platform yet?
avatar
I read a report today that said the symptoms of this stock market crash were the same as those before the great crash of 2008. So what do you think? Is this a correction or the start of a crash?
avatar
thought the DB chin was popular see the best bid/offer is R68/R75 (MM I guess, but thats a huge spread!) - but next offer is R250
avatar
I agree that volume might be a problem, as ETFs are tiny compared to unit trusts. I was having a look at DBChina ETN recently and somethimes there's one trade in five days. Last week the share price was roughly 8000c and then somebody bought one share at 45,000c giving a % fluctuation in share price in 1 day. And then somebody sells 5 shares and the price drops to 7500c. Crazy!
avatar
I'm pretty sure it will go the same way as unit trusts eventually (I think there are over 1500 in SA now?)
avatar
Only issue I can think of is a problem with volume but we have market makers so...
avatar
Don't think there can be too many ETFs
avatar
I am just rambling btw.
avatar
As for too much, I think we are approaching that now, so much duplication in this space soon you will be struggling to find two ETFs to put together. Coreshares are pushing one ETF after the next and I am starting to think it's getting a bit much now - unless they can focus and make some weird combo's rather like Tech + Retail or some odd stuff that might work hehehe Smile
avatar
I know ASHGEQ is not close, but I chose PTXTEN for the growth and thinking property is safer, turns out its not, so will replace it with something that I think is more stable ie the S&P1200
avatar
When is it too much ETFs?
avatar
ASHGEQ + MAPPSG and you've got everything
avatar
Anyway
avatar
PTXTEN and ASHGEQ isn't close to the same though... what the hell?
avatar
There are a lot more ETFs coming.... so chill
avatar
I'd say both, or you'll be at the mercy of the Rand swinging the wrong way. But I ike your descriptions - ultimate global and ultimate local! :-)
avatar
I want to sell it and get me something safer like the Ashburton 1200 ETF, I am liking that one now. I am curious what Simon would prefer, that or the CTOP50 or... both. Ultimate offshore combined with ultimate local.
avatar
I cannot wait for PTXTEN to recover
avatar
Cool thanks, I had a look what EE offered and its that ABSA ETN and one with STD bank.
avatar
avatar
ABSA probably (NewFunds)
avatar
Think there is (or maybe an ETN)
avatar
Or is there some sort of Silver ETF?
avatar
Afternoon, I'm keen on buying a few 2017 One oz Silver Premium Uncirculated Krugerrands to keep for 20 years or so. Would this be the way to "invest" in silver?
avatar
Was hoping they would be the game changer, but JSE is still the same and it seems ZAR X is stalling?
avatar
Too quiet...
avatar
Very quiet... Sad
avatar
I see their blog was last updated in Oct
avatar
Does ZAR X still exist? I don't see them on the forum and I don't see them on EasyE either.
avatar
BOOM! There stands the guy with the longish hair telling me all the things I wish I knew earlier Big Grin
avatar
I remember the first time I met him at Standard Bank. We were on our way to listen to this Simon guy whom I've never seen before. On our way there we stop at the coffee shop and there is this guy with longish hair standing there ordering coffee. He doesn't look like any of the bank drones so he stands out like a sore thumb. Thought he was a client so just grabbed my coffee and walked into the boardroom
avatar
Simon is a legend
avatar
I don't think I trust anybody in the finance world, not the brokerage firms, not their owners and especially not the bloggers. Save Simon. Simon is cool Big Grin
avatar
avatar
I wouldn't let my financial advisor touch it though. She gets enough with my RA an other unit trusts. No need to involve her here Tongue
avatar
So depending on fees, Allan Gray, Coronation, Stanlib...they may not be such a bad option.
avatar
Not advocating it specifically, but if you look at Sygnia's Skeleton 70 fund - almost got everything you need (save the big Naspers allocation).
avatar
Mine is all ETF at the moment but when they allow us to move it to other providers one day I may give unit trusts for my TFSA a serious look
avatar
The market is still the best bet for your TFSA over the long term. Whether it be ETFs or unit trusts
avatar
The market slump isn't bad if you're thinking long term because you can buy ETFs cheap now. I've been meaning to get STXDIV for a while now, but it was about 13% overbought so not a good time to buy. Now, I can fill up my R33000 with STXDIV at a reasonable price! So it's not all bad... :-)
avatar
It's the only bet if I am not mistaken - @Bandit
avatar
Are ETF's still the best bet for TFSA's?
avatar
Lol, sorry
avatar
I have 1 year's worth of TFSA allocated to PTXTEN
avatar
Don't even.
avatar
Yeah, all my ETF's are green except for PTXTEN
avatar
At this stage if you have green you can thank the stars
avatar
All this crypto madness has made me greedy Sad
avatar
Could've been worse i guess, could've been in the red
avatar
5% growth in one and a half years
avatar
I just checked my ETF's after months, Y U SO FLAT?
avatar
Yea I think it's EasyEquities = 70% Purple Group and 30% Sanlam and then GT247 is 100% Purple Group along with GT private broking also 100% Purple Group owned.
avatar
Thanks.
avatar
Both belong to Purple Group, but they are separate businesses.
avatar
No its a completely separate account EE is for investing GT247 is a day trading platform
avatar
The account is not linked to EE is it?
avatar
Lol, 1 Lambo for everyone here. :p . Do you have a referral link to pm me? I have not created an account yet.
avatar
Remember us when you're a filthy rich Forex trader, 1 lambo should suffice.
avatar
Nice, thanks for you effort. Smile

@Brendan - >https://twitter.com/GT_247/status/960505471873486849
avatar
I asked them on twitter will see what they say.
avatar
Does GT247 have a demo facility available? I'm currently using Avatrade via Metatrader and would like to compare the two in terms of spread etc.

NEPI Rockcastle the one etf I thought would be rock solid.
avatar
I remember spreadsheet used to have NAPI
avatar
I bought at its peak Sad
avatar
RES at -19%
avatar
Bidvest snd Shoprite are the only ones for me not completely recked by the last two weeks of BS. Even my Discovery is down Sad
avatar
Naspers is one of my buy and hold investments. I've already lost my Capitec shares to a stop loss, and they were also not meant to sell either. I only trade with 10% of my capital. The rest is buy and hold.
avatar
If you are trading and than is part of the plan, stick to it. Personally, don't have stops on my investing accounts and will only sell on fundamental reasons.
avatar
I'm worried about Naspers. They've lost 13% in the last 9 days and are soooo close to the 320000c barrier which will start a massive sell-off. I really don't want my Naspers to trigger my stop loss, but I have a rule never to cancel my stop losses. Ever. But this is Naspers, the top stock in the market. Don't know what to do... :-(
avatar
Sold those capitec shares at 912 almost at close on Friday. Had had two bad days on all my portfolio's, got gatvol, closed out of all my "right" sized trades and orders and chucked into Capitec on CFDS. Account went red a few times. Very stupid revenge trade. Anyway, very lucky to end green a few days later. But adding another rule to my play book - no trading of shares I haveany sort of bias a bias towards.
avatar
I am also so glad for for L4L, that and AXL are my star stocks so far. Would like for AXL to rally a little bit tbh.
avatar
It's everything, not just RES.. Fifth straight day of heavy losses. Small cap seens to be the only companies that are resisting the dive. Two of my stocks already triggered stop losses after losing 18% each, and even Naspers is heading that way it seems My Ellies, L4L, and STXQUA are my only stocks that are still green..
