Interactive Brokers from the States are coming to Oz and they allow margin trading on Australian shares.
It`s not a margin loan you apply for.
It works like this:
If you place an order for $ 20,000 and you have $ 15,000 in your account, they will lent you the missing $ 5,000.
So it is always done on a per trade basis and they will lent to a maximum % of the value of the trade.
Not sure how much that is, but might be up to 50% of the trade.
Is Macquarie Prime not a bit similar in the way that they dont have cfd`s anymore, but you buy those shares in your name and you pay margin on the top 200/300 shares?
I wonder if this type of trading on margin is allowed for your superfund?
