SharenetCFDs slash rates by 43%

Here is some great news for investors trading equity CFDs with SharenetCFDs:

From midnight on Sunday the 3rd July 2011, Sharenet CFDs in association with IG Markets reduced the commission rate of trading JSE-equity CFDs from 0.35% to 0.2%.

If a difference of 0.15 doesn’t sound like much, know that commission rates have a significant impact on long-term returns. As the example below shows, even a slight drop in commission rate results in a considerable saving for you as the investor.


Assuming the opening and closing of a R200,000 Angloplats position at 5% margin (R10,000):

Furthermore, the more frequently you trade, the greater savings you will make on a lower commission cost. At the end of the day, you’ll have more cash to withdraw or to add to your capital.

Commission is also calculated on the basis of the total transaction size, rather than margin size. Thus the costs of commission will be augmented by the leveraged portion of your transaction. The larger the leverage portion, the greater the commission saving as a percentage of your margin.

Unlike the cost of interest, commission can’t be easily adjusted without impacting on the size of a transaction, so it makes sense to choose a low-cost commission broker like SharenetCFDs in association with IG Markets.

Commission rates will continue to be charged on the opening and closing of positions, with a minimum charge of R100.

This reduction in commission rates is just another way SharenetCFDs is showing our dedication to maximising your trading potential.
