When registering a new trading account with GT247, by default, your account is set to a ZAR FREE account which allows you to trade all available Forex, Commodity, Indice and Crypto instruments. 

The ZAR FREE account does not allow for JSE Equity CFD trading and this would need to be activated on your account by our support team upon request.

Adding JSE Equity CFDs to your trading account will carry a monthly Live Price viewing fee which is charged by the JSE and deducted from your available cash. For a non-professional trader, this would be approximately R82 per month VAT incl. Full list of costs can be viewed here.

I want to activate JSE Equity CFD Trading on my account:

Kindly email our support team and request that JSE Equity CFDs be added to your trading platform. You may copy the below text and paste it into your email: MAKE SURE TO USE YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER AS THE SUBJECT HEADING


Email: supportdesk@gt247.com

Subject: [Insert your MT5 account number]

Good day, 

Kindly activate and add JSE Equity CFDs to my MT5 account. I understand the monthly charges. 

Kind Regards,

[Insert Your Name and Surname]


A support agent will activate your JSE Equity CFDs and these will be accessible on your MT5 platform under CFDs/Local Markets/Equities within your Market Watch window.

  • Please allow up to 48 hours for the Equity CFDs to be activated.
  • JSE Equity CFDs are not tradeable on USD account types.
