Rather than quietly letting this milestone slip by, ShareChat has celebrated her birthday in style, with a great new makeover. Like a fine wine, she is definitely getting better with age!
Not only does ShareChat turn 10 this year, but the site now sports a fresh new look and some exciting new content to celebrate. Follow along with me as I take you on a quick tour of what is new.
The home page is basically a quick summary of the latest news stories, top 15 index prices, announcements followed by blogs and forum posts. Great if you only want a quick glance at the index (see right hand column) and news headlines.
For those of you, who like to follow the news, click on the News tab and from there you can read our news stories from the last few days. To delve deeper, you can view older stories through the Archive.
This section also contains Daily News Links. This is the popular content contained in our AM Update newsletter. Sent early each morning, this email outlines the most important business stories, not only from ShareChat, but from several major local and international news websites. It’s a great resource to see what other markets have been doing overnight.
Expanding on the news section, you might also like to check out the Daily ShareChat and Blogs tabs. Daily ShareChat is a NEW section we’ve recently introduced. Journalist, Jenny Ruth investigates companies listed on the NZX and the broker sentiment surrounding them.
Moving on, the blogs are a great way to read views and opinions by our experienced team of contributors. Keep an eye on this space as we will be introducing guest bloggers to you on a regular basis and even a novice like me, will be sharing my investing experiences.
Building on the news content, we also have the Markets pages where you can get a quick overview of share prices and announcements from both NZX and ASX. This where our Market Weekly Diary lives as well as some excellent content from Finance TV and Boardroom Radio.
Another crucial part of the website is our Investor Education centres. Starting at the Investing tab you can learn more about investing in the share market. Once you have mastered that, we have also expanded on this further to specialised centres for the more experienced. The Forex, CFD and Options centre’s are great for those wanting to learn more.
Closely entwined with education is our no-risk Stock Guru game. Here’s where you can learn to invest in the share market with our simple buy and hold investing challenge. It’s FREE to play and we have some great prizes up for grabs. So don’t wait, register today and we’ll be in touch when there is a game due to begin.
If you’re looking to expand your investing knowledge, have a browse around our Bookstore. In conjunction with Good Returns we can offer you a specialised range of books on share market and property investing. Quite often there are special discounts and offers for newsletter members.
This leads me nicely on to tempt you with our vast array of FREE email newsletters on offer. There is something here for everyone, so be sure to tick one or two so we can keep you updated and in touch.
Finally, if there are any comments or suggestions for the website please feel free to drop me a quick email. The site is forever evolving and I’d like to hear your views.
