    Edit order and add a stop-loss

    Sharenet Securities are pleased to announce that their clients are now able to place stop-loss orders as well edit existing orders.

    A stop-loss order is an order placed to sell a security when it reaches a certain price designed to limit an investor’s loss on a position. A stop-loss order takes the emotion out of trading decisions and can be especially handy when one cannot watch his/her position.

    In the past if you wanted to edit the price, quantity or expiry date of an order, clients had to cancel and re-enter the order. But not anymore. Clients can simply hit the edit icon to change an order’s parameters. Add or reduce order quantity or modify the expiration time/date and do all of this without jeopardising your time priority of that order.

    New rates for 2009

    Due to an increase in royalty charges from the JSE and other cost increases, Sharenet wishes to announce that with effect from 1 Jan 2009 all our rates will be increasing by 12%.

    The rates that we have now were last changed in January 2007, when we were able to give private investors some decreased rates due reductions in JSE royalties for private users.

    We continue to enhance our product offerings, adding more data and features. We welcome any suggetions which can be sent to support@sharenet.co.za
