Hi Patric, Why is Sasol R72.86 in the competition while on other shares sites R 23.21 ? Huge differences that don't go away for days ? Thank you Patric

Good question, I pull the data from google. I'm seeing R23.21 at the moment though, so it might have been someone hitting the wrong buttons

Both my accounts are incorrect.  I sold at the incorrect high price and it now looks like I am a master trader >.<  Check my holdings/purchases/sales and you will see that I sold my Sasol and Investec at 7000+ and it was captured as valid.

I think the script you are using to pull data is pulling obscure data after hours.  Just a guess...

Weird, which transactions were they? I'll have to roll back for fairness. I use the googlefinance function in google sheets to get the values.

For me, this transaction is incorrect:  2020-03-19 20:48:07   SOL  I sold at a high price that wasn't a real price.

Patrick your IC is broken. Sasol price is shown as R72. I wish.

It seems to be a common problem with googles Sasol price, always at R72. I'll try switch to a different source for it.

Thanks for asking gcr. We kinda good but reeling from the exchange rate and a 40u% drop in the market. We have plan B in place. Will post in my blog soon.
I started here with nothing and still have most of it left.

Personally I split between VT and VWRD. Both are very similar but taxed differently. it depends on many things, like where your tax residence is and if you have a US social security number
