I have an account with Bell direct which I actively trade with. I am thinking of opening an additional account with commsec as well. From what I am reading online, it looks like I can do this (please correct me if wrong). I don't believe that I will trade through them (Bell direct is cheaper). I may trade a couple of times during the introductory period for free, but they would be trades, rather then buy and holds.
Generally I would like access to the analysis tools they have there. Does anyone know if they take these away if you are not an active trader? I know with Bell direct, they have bell direct gold, where if you trade at least 5 times during the month, you get free access to their technical analysis through recognia the following month. Is it similar?
Are there any other hidden fees there? I'm looking though all the statements they have and it looks pretty clear from what I am seeing? I do not have a commonwealth bank account at all if that makes a difference.
