The Uganda Stock Exchange (USE), incorporated in 1997 as a company limited by guarantee without a share capital, is the principal stock exchange of Uganda. It was established as a result of the Government's policy of transforming the country's economy from a public to that of a private sector basis. The USE offers an organized market where buyers and sellers of securities meet, as dealers/brokers represent them to acquire and/or sell securities such as equity shares and bonds. As an alternative source of investment capital for small and large enterprises, the USE represents a link between companies with capital needs and the general public with savings to invest, allowing these investors to become part owners of the companies.

In October 2003, the USE launched the USE All Share Index (ALSI), a market-weighted average index comprising all listed stocks on the bourse, which backdates to a base value of 100 as of December 31, 2000. In addition to ALSI, USE publishes the USE Local Companies Index which tracks the performance of the domestic equities on the Exchange. In July 2015, USE implemented an automated trading system, a computerized-based trading application set up to automatically buy and sell securities. This, along with a new central securities depository system, improved liquidity and trade efficiency by reducing the settlement time from five to three days.

    Good day.
    Any resources you can suggest to learn everything about trading in the stock market? I don't want to hope in with little knowledge, as the risks in this are high.

      Hello, I have prepared an online training and consultation session on how to invest profitably during an economic recession/turbulent times.
      As surprising as it may seem, investing in a recession could be a great opportunity for you.
      It can be a great idea to invest during a recession -- but only if you're in a strong enough financial position to do so and only if you have the right attitude and approach. You should never compromise your near-term financial security for long-term gain. Remember that if you're hurting financially, there's no shame in missing out on opportunities. Instead, focus on paying your bills and staying physically and mentally healthy. You can always ramp up your investments at a later point in life -- once your job is more secure, your earnings are steady, and your mind is more at ease on the whole.
      In this session I will share insights on;
      •     Understanding what an economic recession means for investors
      •     How to adjust and position your investment portfolio during an economic recession
      •     Real-world historical results of investing in recessions
      •     What to invest in during a recession or tight financial times
      •     What not to invest in during a recession
      •     Safety measures to take while investing during an economic recession
      This will be a one week program (Monday to Friday, excluding Sunday, Saturday will only be questions and answers)
      I will be educating/teaching you from to by posting articles, images, PDF documents and other educational materials. From to the will be an open forum for discussions, questions and answers.
      NOTE: The training won’t affect your daily schedules. You can access all the information posted in your inbox at your own free time.
      To join this session it will only cost you Ksh1500 only

    How secure are the Government and treasury bonds and what is the listing prices. @

      Governments bonds are secure, that is why their return on investment is quite low in comparison with other investments, they are considered as low risk and less volatile.

      However, they are not a good invest for;
      1. Short term investors- during an economic recession/turbulent economic times.
      2. Investors with less diversified investment portfolio

      This is so because, if the government goes under a debt crisis, it might delay payments for maturing bonds.

      For your case and for convenience you can look for a broker offering international services and have an online trading platform

      When choosing a broker, it is advisable to go for a well established Investment firm instead of individual brokers.

      Make sure you have a simple investment plan/portfolio before you venture into any investment.

      My six steps of creating a simple and achievable investment portfolio
      • Start with Your Goals and Time Horizon
      • Understand Your Risk Tolerance
      • Match Your Account Type with Your Goals
      • Select Investments- should be diverse
      • Create Your Asset Allocation and Diversify
      • Monitor, Rebalance and Adjust
      Once a portfolio is in place, it's important to monitor the investment and ideally reassess goals annually, making changes as needed.
      Most people have heard the old saying, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." The logic: If a farmer were to stumble while bringing the basket of eggs back from the henhouse, they could end up with a messy situation. Those words of wisdom go well beyond farming; they also perfectly encapsulate the idea of not risking all your money on a single investment.
      One way investors can reduce their risk of a cracked nest egg is by diversifying their portfolio. Here's a look at what that means, as well as three tips to help you quickly diversify your investments.
      My Three Tips on Diversifying Your Portfolio In order To Reduce Overall Risk for Beginners
      1. Buy at least 25 stocks across various industries (or buy an index fund)
      2. Put a portion of your portfolio into fixed income e.g. bonds- this reduces your overall portfolio returns, but also lessen risk and volatility
      3. Consider investing a portion in real estate- Real estate has historically increased a portfolio's total return while reducing its overall volatility
