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

    • That "your research" has uncovered, can't wait to see it!
    • Generally it is my policy (for the reasons you state) not to hold trading positions over the week-end. Especially holiday (extended) weekends. Some would say even over-night! If you're taking a long term view on markets then I'd question whether Spread Betting is the correct vehicle.at all. Better off with an appropriate ETF/Fund IMHO. You may have a guaranteed stop in place but if not you will be subject to slippage (look it up). The trade will be executed at the best price when the market opens. If what you say happens, then that could well be below 1511. Sorry but a lesson that could have been avoided IMHO.
    • Haha, they were correct initially and were actually 'following the science' before they were subverted and started 'following the politics' instead, see your Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor in the video below. This whole farce has been a never ending story of flip flops and moving goal posts not because of incompetence as most think but by following a covert plan, as per (nearly) every western country in succession. Thank God for Sweden, no lock downs, no shutting down of their health service, no masks, social distancing or vax mandates and came through with normal all-cause deaths for 2020.     More and more people are waking up every day.
