    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.

    STOP-LOSS
    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.

    EDIT ORDER
    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.

    A new look for Sharechat and APP released too

    Sharechat, the home to four and a half thousand registered users and thousands more visitors, has recently undertaken a face-lift and introduced numerous enhancements. But at its core, Sharechat remains focused on providing a stable, user-friendly platform for traders, investors and anybody interested in the markets to post freely and ask and answer questions. It really is the virtual investment community of choice for many South Africans.

    Sharechat has been around since May 2003 and it seems fitting that 10 years later to the month, Sharechat has also released an APP, compatible with the following devices:
    • iPhone
    • iPad
    • All Android devices

    With dedicated threads to each listed JSE instrument and popular indices like the “ALSI Trades” thread, traders and investors alike are in regular contact posting their thoughts, their trades and their targets. There have been as many as 200 users logged in at the same time and now that clients can access the forum from their mobile devices, Sharenet expects these numbers to increase substantially.

    The Sharechat APP is available from the Apple App store as well as the Android APP store. Simply search for Sharechat, download and install. And it is free!

    2013 increase notice

    Dear Clients

    As of 1 January 2013, the JSE will be instituting an increase across their data products of approximately 8%. Due to these and other rising costs, Sharenet, as from 1 January 2013 will similarly be initiating an increase of 8% across its products and services.

    Please note that monthly PowerStocks subscriptions will be increased on 1 January 2013 as follows:
    1) Monthly PowerStocks subscribers at R499 per month

    At Sharenet, we are continually working hard at maintaining excellence in our service and are always looking at improving and enhancing our product offerings, adding more data and features where we can. 2012 was particularly busy as we managed the JSE's trading platform migration but swiftly dealt with the few minor issues that this created and we wish to thank all our clients for their help and especially your patience during the switch over.

    We also continued to add to our free mobile app offerings and launched our Twitter account for even more free updates. If you haven't yet added us, simply go to https://twitter.com/SharenetSA or find us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/sharenetsa

    Our Sharenet CFDs service (www.sharenetcfds.co.za) has continued to grow, in no small way due to the excellent platform and rates we can offer clients there.

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

    Thank you for your continued support and business.

    JSE to move to a new, faster trading system

    Dear Users

    As you may have heard already, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is migrating to a new trading system. As of Monday, 2 July 2012, the new trading system, called the Millenium Exchange, will operate out of Johannesburg instead of London and the benefits that should arise from this switch include the following:

    • The JSE believe that the new system will make equity market transactions 400 times faster.
    • The new system will improve service availability and stability.
    • The system is expected to increase the equity volumes traded on the JSE and therefore liquidity.

    Sharenet has been hard at work testing and developing our systems over the last 6 months in anticipation of the change and while we expect a smooth transition, there may be some unexpected glitches come Monday morning. If you do happen to find something out of place, please do email us at support@sharenet.co.za and we will be sure to give it our immediate attention.

    Kind regards
    The Sharenet Team

    Rates adjustment for 2012

    Dear Client

    Every year, the JSE reviews their pricing and as of 1 January 2012, they will be instituting an increase. Due to these and other rising costs, Sharenet, as from 1 January 2012 will be initiating an increase of 9% across its products and services (excluding PowerStocks subscriptions which are increasing to R454 per month).

    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. 2011 was particularly exciting as we launched several free smartphone and tablet applications as well as ran a successful national seminar calendar, both of which have been warmly received. We are already developing several other exciting initiates which will be unveiled over the course of 2012.

    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.
