    Anybody here make use of CoreShares' platform? Maybe a decent alternative to EE for a TFSA (albeit with limited ETFs available).

    They buy at the NAV though and not the market price, or at least that is what one of the providers do. It through me when I first found out because I was selling for X and the price was already over that. So I phoned them and asked what's going on... not cool

    I might be wrong, but in South Africa all ETFs have what is called a market maker which means volume doesn't matter all that much. Liquidity is guaranteed.
  4. Thanks, although it is frustrating when there is a big launch, photos on Twitter, people going nuts and then it turns out it is only a closed Beta. BUT, I'll survive. So am I correct in saying that although InvestSure is an altogether different product, it does give me "stop loss" functionality on EE on a pay-as-you-go basis?
  5. Is it enabled only for certain people? So to sum up: I can't find any real information about it on the sites and cannot access the feature. Think I'm missing something.
  6. Excuse my ignorance, but were they ready for the launch? https://support.easyequities.co.za/support/solutions/folders/13000009318 http://investsure.info/faq.html (no https...who doesn't have https enabled for a business these days?)
  7. Can somebody paste the actual policy wording here? It sounds innovative, no doubt, but why would they take this risk onto themselves for that small a fee? Is there a "lock-in" period?
  8. I think an invite should be extended to somebody who would appreciate it more. I'm a "long term investor" which is a fancy way of saying that my investments are funded with a debit order and I do not really look at it all that often. I don't even know who Jack Schwager is.

    Don't want to talk about it Luckily, I haven't pushed any money into it yet for 2018 since we're saving for a wedding. So in some sense I reckon I'm lucky so far
  11. Loot isn't nearly as big as people think. Hopefully one day they are and can be a real Takealot competitor (all things considered). They're one of my favourite online stores but definitely not the "Amazon of South Africa"
  12. Yeah, not touching this. You've got a ridiculous valuation and a Zupta linked executive involved.

    Buy and hold shares - EasyEquities. Buy and hold ETFs - ABSA ETF Only or EasyEquities If you are not trading and keeping this for the long term then the rest doesn't matter much.
  14. Tomb Raider (2018) 7/10 I'm alone in my thinking it seems, but I reckon it was better than Angelina Jolie's Tomb Raider movies.
  15. Gringo (2018) 8/10 This was just a great movie. Action, drama, comedy and none of it overdone.
  16. Waiting for this one. Here's the index fact sheet: https://indexes.nasdaqomx.com/docs/NDX_FS.pdf
  17. [video=youtube] Icarus Watch this. When they started filming it was just about doping and how to beat it...and then Russia happened. 9/10 easy.
  18. Just keep at it. Soon you'll tell yourself "why do I pay for Windows when I can get this for free" and then you'll buy a Mac.
  19. @SaurusDNA, it's not the rebalancing interval, it's the cost. 0.5% TER is high for an ETF like this IMO. Just wondering where the costs are coming from considering it trades less than their other ETFs on the same exchange but at double the cost.
  20. Well, that's an "underwhelming" fact sheet for NFEVAL. Interesting though, it rebalances twice a year instead of the regular four times a year but still comes at a cost of 0.5%. For what? NFEMOM is expensive because it rebalances every month but this...why is it not closer to the 0.2-0.3 of their other ETFs like NFSWIX?
  21. Enjoy [video=youtube]
  22. Amateur at best and only take photos when I get a chance. You need good optical zoom for wildlife and bird photography but the sensor size and lens are way more important. I've owned a few cameras before and my favourite must be this one: Canon G3X. Unfortunately, my other half took it and now it is hers. I got a proper DSLR (D5300) but I loathe hauling it around with lenses and what not. Just doesn't fit with the type of photos I like to take. But yes, a regular point-n-shoot is useless and you can just as well use a phone but the premium ones like the G3X and Panasonic TZ110 are in a different league to those. Good compromise between image quality and mobility.
