  1. Found some more details ... $25 withdrawal fee applies to any amount too. https://www.etoro.com/en/help#/path/Withdrawal/ I guess all these fees add up at the end of the day.
  2. Hi, Can you guys give me your opintion on the negatives/positives of investing in bitcoin via Etoro vs using a South African exchange (luno.com, ice3x.co.za or altcointrader.co.za) or even an international exchange? I understand that Etoro is not an exchange so you don't actually own the underlying Bitcoin, but if your investment experiences the same movements I don't see an issue with that. I'm biased towards Etoro because it's the only one i've used and it's really simple, but there must be more to it if people here don't use it much. From the Etoro side, I can deposit vi
  3. Hi, I would like to get your opinions on contributions to Retirement Funds. As far as I understand it, contributions are capped at 27.5% of your taxable income. And Retirements Funds include Pension, Provident and and RA Funds. My question is do you guys max out your contributions to these each year?

    Hello :)

    Hey Everyone, Just a quick hello and a bit about why I joined. Technical analysis has always interested me. For the last few years i've been meaning to build a trading system based on this but never gotten around to it. Hopefully that'll change soon. I plan on using an open source statistical language called R in order to back test as well as find buy/sell signals. (Added benefit is that my work could soon involve using a bit of R too.) All my code will be posted so if anyone wants to use it you're welcome to. Be careful though, i'm still pretty new at it so i'm su
