How it works

Purchases

  • You may at any point place a purchase order to use available funds in your trading account, subject to the minimum trade sizes of R250
  • If there are insufficient funds in your account, you can use the “top up my account” feature to transfer money from your bank account to your trading account
  • If the market is closed at the time that your order is received it will be automatically sent to the market when it next opens
  • Option to automate your investing by setting up recurring purchases on a date that suits you

Sales

  • You may at any point place a sale order stipulating the number of units held you wish to sell
  • Choose whether to have the proceeds of the sale remain in your investment account (so they may be used for a later purchase) or to have them automatically paid out to your bank account (this will happen 3 business days after the sale). Any unused funds in the account do earn interest.
  • If the market is closed at the time that your order is received it will be automatically sent to the market when it next opens
