How many South Africans on here

Hi everyone. I was wanting to find out how many South African traders are on this forum.

 

It would be great to see some comments on our local stocks and indices.

 

Please introduce yourself so that we can get to know one another.

 

I also hope that this is allowed on the IG platform

Hi mate and welcome to the South African club. Unfortunately the index has been range bound over the last few days. Do you want to trade the South African cash index?

 

I would start with the R2 mini contract until you get the hang of it. IG also offers a demo account in which you can trade the index to get some practice.

 

Unfortunately, trading the index can be very risky without having typed stop losses.

 

I would wait for the payroll numbers today out of the United States before trading the index.

 

As much as trading the index maybe risky, if you get it correct it can reward you handsomely.

 

What would be very nice is if we as South Africans can have a WhatsApp group or something so that we can quickly give ideas on trading. I am not sure whether this comment is allowed on this platform. I apologise in advance if I have over stepped the mark here.

Hi Guys.

 

Yes another Saffer!

 

I dont trade top40, too much risk for my liking.

 

I like dealing in the commodities like gold,silver, copper and brent oil via the JSE companies.

 

Would love a whatsapp group.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
