As the world we’ve come to know changes in ways we’ve never imagined, Standard Online Share Trading understands the importance of having the right tools in your hands to make quick decisions in a fast-changing environment. That’s why we’re waiving the R175 Live Level 1 pricing** on Viewpoint until the end of July, an offer that has been made possible in collaboration with the JSE Ltd.

If you do not currently subscribe to Live Level 1 pricing, we will automatically upgrade you to the live price package for the duration of this promotion. Should you wish to continue with live prices after the promotion (i.e. after end of July 2020) you will have to amend your selection in the Viewpoint menu on the OST website to elect a live price package, failing which we will automatically revert to your current subscription status on 01 August 2020. If you elect a live price package, your account will be debited with the applicable monthly fee at the end of August 2020 and onwards.
