Topi - 24008 5years ago und Topi tody maybe 43000-43500 or less. Rand - 7.1866 5years ago und Rand tody maybe 13. so in usd terms you didnt do nada except get divi (15% tax) und pay cgt (15%) tax. Any thoughts other than it is dead und it be a scam?

how would that analysis look if you used the ALSI though? or the Industrial and Financial Indexes. I think the gold and mining industry in general is a drag on the TOPI right now.
