I already have a share broker, however Iíd now like to open another broker account (or CFD account) in my wifeís name. The most important features that Iím looking for are:
ē LARGE list of ASX shares (or CFDís) available for shorting online.
ē Able to place trades via. contingent type orders.
ē FAST trade execution.
ē (if CDF provider) must use Direct Market Access model.
As I already have my own trading account with dynamic streaming data, email alerts, etc, I donít require those sorts of features in this secondary account.
Iíd prefer to be able to trade without placing funds in the brokerís own account. ie. trade via my wifeísí bank account, or CMT account (although I could probably live with placing money in brokerís own account as long as itís quick and easy to withdraw/add funds whenever I like).
As I canít currently trade the short side of the market with my existing account, this is one of the main things Iíd like to rectify with this account, and itíll be important that they have a LARGE list available for shorting since I only tend to trade in the small Ė mid-caps.
