I'm new here. Not an Aussie myself but very interested in the ASX.
I've been looking around for a good place to chat about ASX stocks as I'm trying to add on a new market to my trading activities. Currently I trade US equities and the odd Canadian issue.
Any tips? (not stock picks, but tips about how the ASX works in comparison to, let's say, the NYSE?)
Any exchange "gotcha's" that might catch a newbie off guard?
I primarily day trade, and sometimes hold swing positions, but never for more than a few days at most.
For overseas (from your perspective that is) clients, which is an active-trader friendly broker to consider? My first choice for international trading would have been InteractiveBrokers but I'm kinda shocked to see they charge quite a bit more for ASX transactions when compared to US markets.
Any other info / help would be awesome.
