The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) is the principal stock exchange of the country. Through its automated trading system, the GSE opens for continuous trading every working day from 10:00 to 15:00 GMT. Settlement of trades, handled by Bank of Ghana's Central Securities Depositary, is done on a T+3 basis (business days). The Exchange publishes two indices: the GSE Composite Index (GSE-CI; a market capitalization weighted index of all ordinary shares with the exception of those listed on other markets) and the GSE Financial Stocks Index (GSE-FSI; same as GSE-CI but consists of only stocks from the financial sector). Together with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the regulatory body for the securities market), the GSE have investor protection provisions such as rules against insider trading as well as a fidelity fund to compensate investors for losses incurred as a result of malpractice by a licensed dealing member of the bourse.

      Register an account with the new broker and put in a shares transfer request with the old one. The forms you'll be asked to fill will give the old broker all the necessary details to complete the transaction.

      Are you sure you are using this interface: BTW, Jan 1, 2010 was a holiday so you should start querying from the first trading day (Jan 4) instead.

      Financials: Ecobank Ghana & Cal Bank. Consumer Goods: Fan Milk & Unilever. Fan Milk has hit rock bottom so has nowhere to go but up. Keep an eye on Total because there's likely to be fuel price adjustment in the future which will increase revenue for the company. Not so much for Goil though.

      Hi Ebenezer, I do not know how far Daniel went with you in relation to your request.

      But i will advise you engage IC Securities (the lead brokers to the Public Offer) on 0302 252 623 and 0302 252 621 .

      They will serve you the advice you need.

    1. Is there any broker in Ghana having an online platform for trading share?

    2. Is it possible to change a broker whilst maintaining a particular stock?

    1. AkosuaAkosua

      So EDC Stockbrokers just launched its online trading platform. You may want to check it out.

      You can change brokers and still maintain the shares you hold. You may engage your brokers in this regard.
