Hi,

There was an article on the SA40, can't find it again,

any comments, views, considerations on trading the SA40?

Hi @Darrenm,

JSE slipped amid weak Chinese data and fresh virus outbreaks. Despite a weaker start to the week for the all share, banks, retailers and financials rose on the day.

The JSE was weaker on Monday morning, with its global peers mixed as sluggish Chinese economic data and renewed Covid-19 outbreaks weighed on sentiment.

Chinese July retail sales and industrial production figures fell more than was forecast — a trend that analysts fear might worsen as the world’s second-largest economy grapples with the spread of the highly infectious Delta strain.

Have a look at this article by our senior market analyst: How to trade South Africa 40 Index

    • While Layer 2 scaling solutions have helped alleviate congestion on blockchains like Ethereum, Layer 3 rollups are emerging as the next frontier for achieving ultimate scalability and cost-effectiveness. Three prominent layer 3 rollup stand out; ZKlink, Immutable X, and dYdX, each having its distinct strengths. .ZKlink stands out as a prominent player in this space, offering unique advantages compared to other Layer 3 protocols. While Immutable X Built on StarkNet focuses primarily on NFT marketplaces and gaming applications. dYdX utilizes StarkNet for rollups, achieving high throughput for trading activities. With each of the above focusing on a particular user in crypto space, ZKlink take it a bit far by prioritizing interoperability, liquidity solutions, and developer customization. ZKlink also the ability to bridge the gap between different blockchain layers and optimize scalability which makes it a significant force in shaping the future of decentralized applications.   The recent Bitget  listing of ZKLink native token further created buzz around the project due to the anticipation of the round one airdrop. Considering the fact that only ZK link utilizes fast financial transactions throughput using the innovative Ts-Evm makes it more unique and position it as the frontrunner in layer 3 rollup race.
    • I've been exploring numerous methods of passive earning over the years aside from spot trading. These methods include staking, futures trading, OTC trading, bot trading, copy trading, and launchpool. I've achieved some successes along the way, and now I'm trying to streamline and focus on just a few passive income opportunities. Actually looked into a project I encountered on X while browsing for opportunities. Branded as UPLAND, I was kinda drawn due to its Gamefi (NFT, metaverse) affiliation on Bitget's launchpool. Let's see what exploring this token fetches me this time 😁🤞🏻 Would love your shared experience(s) using this feature if any and what it's really like?
