Has anyone used the HSBC online trading facility - or know much about it? In particular, is it reliable and fast? I'm only considering it for trading shares, not derivatives.
I'm currently using NAB online trading for some shares, but need another facility as well (don't want to use NAB for both). HSBC looks quite good as it has good rates and a direct debit service to an external bank account (which I want to link to an account in NAB).
By comparison, CommSec & Etrade both have higher rates and no direct debit facility (that I can see). Westpac is looking the next best, but its rates are a little higher than HSBC's too.
