If SBK were to introduce a R2 index contract (min 2 Contracts) and provide charting tool for free (Subject to certain trading conditions) and replace Easy trader, i firmly believe it will not only increase turnover but also profitability in term of increase traffic volumes.(omo)
@simon, Margin for IG market for 2 contract is R2750. SBK is R4500 (+/-)for 1 contract therefore 2 contract will be R9000. It is rather expensive to trade a ALMI index. Another factor is that those contracts (IG markets) can be closed anytime.
