    The application will also allow the user to custom create a watch-list of shares, commodities and indices. The personalised watch-list will display the price, move for the day and move percentage and if selected will provide a more in-depth look at the shares' trading details (chart, high/low information, volume traded and best buy and sell order).

    Especially useful for professionals who are on the go but need to stay on top of the markets and their portfolios, this application is the perfect companion.

    A free news feed will soon be added to complete the package - so watch this space!

    Sharenet proud to announce smart phone applications for Blackberry and Android

    Sharenet is proud to announce that its Android and Blackberry applications are now available FREE through the Android (South Africans only) and Blackberry marketplaces respectively. To download directly, you can click on the appropriate link on our www.sharenet.mobi website through your phone.

    Steve Tester, head of IT at Sharenet commented on the applications by saying that “They were designed to cater for the professional who is on the move and who needs quick access to stock market information. Both applications support a wide range of screen sizes and is compatible with tablets and all phones running the Android version 2.0 and above, or blackberry version 5.”

    Customers can access JSE listed share price information including high and low data, best buy, sell and volume traded information all on a 15-minute delayed basis. Whether users want to follow international news headlines, keep abreast of local company news or follow the forex market, it is all available through the user-friendly and smart design of the Sharenet applications.

    Sharenet’s Blackberry application developer, international SNOM XML-Applications award winner Shaun Crous, feels that aesthetics is a key ingredient in designing a popular, frequently used application and regards the Sharenet release as “slick, trendy and very professional.” He also says that “while apps like these are available for foreign markets, I haven’t been able to find one that does what we’re doing for the South African market, until now!”

    A distinguishing feature on the Android application is the individual watchlist/portfolio that users can build and monitor – a way to quickly view all shares of interest in one easily maintained table. Watch out Blackberry users, it’s coming your way too, very soon!

    Rates adjustment for 2011

    Dear Client

    Every year, the JSE reviews their pricing and as of 1 January 2011, they will be instituting an increase. Due to these and other rising costs, Sharenet wishes to announce that with effect from 1 January 2011 all our rates will be increasing by 9%.

    At Sharenet, we continually strive to maintain excellence in our service and to enhance our product offerings, adding more data and features where we can. 2010 was particularly exciting as we unveiled our SharenetCFDs offering to a great reception and we are on the verge of launching a complimentary trading and investing research subscription package through our new partners, PowerStocks Research.

    We welcome any and all suggestions which could help us improve our service to our clients and encourage you to send these through to support@sharenet.co.za

    Thank you for your continued support and business.

    Improved news section

    Sharenet has improved its news section dramatically by developing a dedicated news page that allows users to group news according to the following categories:

    Local SA business items, US business, African news, European news, Asian headlines, breaking FOREX-related news and international breaking stories. Our SENS items can still be located in the SENS news section and remains unaffected by this change.

    To further aid our readers we have added keyword search functionality and we will continue to ensure that the most up-to-date and helpful news is displayed in the relevant categories. Try it out by clicking here

    Sharenet sources its news from Reuters and company results news from Profile.
