  1. I had to go fetch my "log" of the EE issues: 2016: Charged extra fees on ETFs they shouldn't have. Refunded clients after clients complained. 2016: Amount of shares in portfolio was less that trading statements showed it should be. 2017: Charged extra fees on ETFs they shouldn't have. Refunded clients after clients complained. 2017: Screwed up a corporate action and inflated the holdings of their "yousers". They only realised their mistake two months later. 2018: Processed dividend reinvestment a month late causing some users to have a zero balance. If they were a bank they'd get the full brunt of it from their clients, but I assume shares are a "foreign" concept for most so they get away with it. It's an appalling track record and just shows how manual (another assumption) their system really is.
  2. So who's got their pre-order downloaded and ready to go? The first RDR was one of my all time favourites! Been waiting forever and tomorrow is the day we get to play ?
  3. How long does a change last on one of these?
  4. Well we didn't go down last year ? Bidorbuy: TBA
  5. I cannot tell how little I care for South African focussed ETFs. Rather bring us more international ones. It's the one thing CoreShares is missing: a "focussed" offshore ETF like the Nasdaq 100. Once they have that I have no reason to be on EE anymore (seen their latest screw up? Can't wait to get off that platform....stupid Thrive emails filling up my inbox as well)
  6. Project Finale (2018) Netflix Follows the hunt, arrest and trial of Eichmann (Ben Kingsley). 7/10

    Global ETF

    EDIT: I give up on this F**** forum leaving my posts blank and having to retype everything *sigh* Lemmer try again 1. Everything dropped this week 2. ETFs are a high risk investment so you need 5+ years to make it worth your while unless you mix it up with more conservative investments like bonds, cash etc.
  8. Just be careful with using this as the default DNS on your router. A DNS service has: 1) access to your browsing history because you are asking them to resolve an IP for you and 2) can in effect return any site they wish for the name you provide, ie: you ask them for absa.co.za and instead of returning the correct IP they point you to an IP of a phishing site. Not saying that is the case here but if you are going to make use of a service like this (to bypass the law) you best be careful and restrict it only to the device you are watching Netflix on and not all your devices including your phone, laptops etc. which you use to share private details with and manage finances with.

    Global ETF

    ASHGEQ - Global 1200 companies. Includes some emerging markets. Most all round. STXWDM - Focussed on developed markets. Most people will buy this. STXNDQ - Nasdaq 100. Companies like Facebook, Tesla, Amazon etc. More focussed, more potential gain, higher risk.
  10. If it reaches R11 a lot of people (including myself) are going to feel very poor...
  11. 180 on ETFs 180 on hedge funds 180 on Twitter...no wait, that was a 360
  12. A paid off car is the best type of car...
  13. 9.85%. FNB and Nedbank came to the party, Standard Bank tried and ABSA...well, let's just say they don't want to do homeloans. Prime +2 something. Anyway, sold my SUV and bought a Swift. Payments and insurance came down substantially. So if you're driving an expensive car that you really don't need let it go (after making sure it will actually work the way you planned of course).
  14. I do. Got int late so only up +3.07% My best so far: FFB: +32.20 % CLS: +14.96 % ILU: +10.58% Worst: RES: -58.21% KIO: -23.83% ADI: -17.81% Luckily we're talking about very small amounts ETFS are doing better: STXWDM: +8.25% STXNDQ: +7.73%

  16. You get the tax benefit for anything that happens inside you TFSA account whether it dividend tax on shares or interest on money. Whether or not you gain any interest on the money in your account depends on the provider though.
  17. If you look at the fact sheets for most balanced funds you'll see that they all seem to have a lower offshore exposure than domestic. Probably because most of the JSE is getting money from offshore anyway. EDIT *non reg 28 balanced funds
  18. Nothing is 100% certain but the chances of ASHGEQ producing better income than GLODIV is highly unlikely. If you read up on the index GLODIV tracks it'll provide you with some insight. Where our local DIVTRX checks a company's 5 year history, GLODIV goes back 10 years within the S&P500. I speak under correction but I think it rebalances once a year but reevaluates the existing constituents every six months. More info: https://eu.spindices.com/indices/strategy/sp-global-dividend-aristocrats?geographicalregion=europe&compliancelevel=esma
  19. Is it a long term investment? In that case there is no real point in worrying about it having "run too hard" already. Long story short - GLODIV is focussed on income producing stocks with a side effect of it's selection criteria being that they are more likely to be quality stocks. A combination of STXWDM and STXEMG gives you growth focussed stocks in both the developed world and emerging markets. What you may want to look at is ASHGEQ. It is already diversified between the developed world, emerging markets and others and basically the only offshore ETF you need if you want to buy everything in the world
  20. Noice. Will patiently wait for it. Not that there is much to do on the site once the debit orders are scheduled My bad guys
  21. You can blame the JSE for that
  22. Cheapest will be through the brokerage platform you are using or IRESS maybe. If you want to use it for a project.... brace yourself - it's expensive and the JSE has a heap of conditions for sharing the data.
