Become a day-trader with Sanlam iTrade for a month

05 September 2014 Sanlam

Ever wanted to trade shares on the JSE, but too nervous to take that first step? Online trading platform Sanlam iTrade is giving one ‘Wannabee iTrader’ the opportunity to trade shares and contracts for difference (CFDs) for a month – with R10 000 deposited into a Sanlam iTrade trading account. Afterwards, you’ll get to keep not only the R10 000 and any profits made – you’ll also get to keep the account.

To be considered for the Wannabe iTrader position, mark Wednesday 10 September in your diary and follow us on the Sanlam iTrade LinkedIn page. The winner of our contest will be guided by experts for two weeks to learn the tools of trading online.

Says Gerhard Lampen, head of Sanlam iTrade: “Online share trading is a great ‘do-it-yourself’ form of investing, but unfortunately, many prospective investors find it intimidating because they lack knowledge. The Wannabe iTrader competition is a great way to learn about the JSE and fundamentals of stock broking.”
