The button titled "Company News" under shares on my home page has been removed. Is this the same for all or just for me?

Same here. It was a very handy function. Anybody know why? I am guessing for security reasons.

Hello, also noticed that and did send an e-mail to support. No response as yet. Now we have to check news about companies on web browser search.

The old company news button linked you to a different source. The link under Company profile has always been there and is far more useful than the other one, have not used the other one for yonks.

Reply from OST to my query. Pity, it was a very useful link. """Company news Kindly note that there was not enough usage of the link and this did not justify the cost associated with it, hence it has been removed. We apologize for the inconvenience caused."""

Thanks for the feedback, pity they did not make it known to everybody. This is extremely poor, it was one of the most useful functions of this site and I used it all the time. I am going to start looking around for another platform.

I too used it all the time. In fact it was one of the reasons I moved from PSG years ago. I don't really care which trading platform I use. I do not want stockbroking advice and if one could cut them out and use Stock Exchanges directly I would. In this internet age perhaps that is something the JSE and others should consider? Trading would certainly be more profitable.

Sounds like a lame answer from them. There are less used buttons on my profile which they rather could have removed.

folks this was just an RSS feed .. here's how you make your own ..

Go to Google, type in name of stock and select the 'news' tab .. boom .. I know massive hard work, but a pretty decent hack and in many ways better as it not curated ..
