How to start investing

Recommended Posts


Easiest (considering you already have an ABSA Stockbroker account) is to buy the NEWUSD ETN. Will effectively track the USD exchange rate with ZAR. You do not own USD though, when you cash out it becomes ZAR again. You are saving quite a bit on transfer costs etc.


If you want actual USD - open an FNB Global Account and transfer into it. Done.


To do actual/active forex trading though you may want to look at another solution which these are not.


Thanks Hamster. much appreciated.

Hi Guys

Thought it was relevant to the above discussion.
