    Share Trading Account?

    I'm looking to open a share trading account for ONLINE trading... Was looking at Comsec or CMC markets. Basically I will open an account with them and put money in it. I don't care if they don't pay any interest though that would be a bonus. I will trade infrequently so I would assume I will...

    Commsec question

    Hi, Unsure of the correct section. How does commsec allocate trades between buyers and sellers in this instance. You say buy at $1 yet there are sellers at .50. Is your bid price a maximum? And vice versa. You say sell at .50 although buyers are at $1. Is there some sense check that...

    Any thoughts about the new Commsec research platform?

    I like the layout, but don't know how to judge it's usefulness yet. How does it compare to other research advisories? The only other ones I know of are Stoxline and Barchart. Are the latter 2 totally tech based?

    Why is my Commsec brokerage $80?

    Hi guys, A few days ago I submitted a sell order below $25k. The day I submitted the order brokerage appeared to be $32. Today it's ramped up to $80. I'm just curious to know why this happens and how I can avoid the additional $50. Thanks

    Commsec error - shares I didn't buy

    Hello, I just logged into Comsec and saw in my portfolio a very small amount of shares which I did not buy. I have never even heard of the company. I will give Comsec a call on Monday, but has this ever happened to anyone before? How could something like this happen?

    ComSec/Bell Direct interfaces

    ComSec is offering $600 free brokerage or 12 free trades (whichever is the least) which is what initially attracted me to them. I doubt I will do 12 trades within the next year, as I'm just getting my feet wet. Bell Direct is offering $15 trades, but their cash account is not covered by the...
