Speculation Group Subscription

Yes, you can as long as you have access to a cell phone or pc.

What does the Speculation Group focus on?

Throughout the day you will receive our technical opinion on the ALSI (the tradeable instrument for the top 40 index) through “Thoughts on the alsi” via email. An official sms is sent when a long or short opportunity is called.

The Speculation Group also receives the trading ideas on CFD’s, the Rand, S&P mini and maize contracts.

The main focus of the group is to learn how to trade and read technical indicators on the top 40 index.

How do I contact you for a faster response if I am on the Speculation Group?

The Speculation Group is a limited group of individuals that can contact Frans or Christelle directly on hangouts with any technical question.

Is alsi (top 40 index) trading risky?

Yes, very risky. 1 point movement on the ALSI is R10 if you trade at a direct access broker. Meaning 100 points against you in the position equals a R1000 for every alsi contract you have. Thus be very careful.

Is there a smaller instrument to trade the top 40 index?

Yes, it is called the almi. If you trade at a direct access broker and 1 point movement in the instrument is equal to R1. If you are new to trading we will start with the almi first.
