Surely they (Commsec) have a trading room, with contact by email, snail-mail or telephone.
Cruise around their website.

Go to the commsec web site;

https://www.commsec.com.au/default.aspx

Access your account;
Complete your personal contact details, including your email for electronic forwarding of contracts;
Create a watch list of the shares you are interested in;
Use the buy/sell tabs to process desired purchases or sales.

If you have any issues with the process, ring the commsec number and one of their customer service staff will happily address your enquiry and walk you through the process.

Good luck.

The truth is ... you will need basic schooling (year 10 minimum) and basic intelligence to move ahead.

The truth is English is not always our first language and it's difficult to do things in your new country. Perhaps this is the case here...?

The Truth is Wysiwyg is a dumb.


Many people, include young people (for sure, they do not have 10 years experience) can make money in stock market very quickly.

Hi Steelcat

Your CDIA account is just a bank account, which you will use to finance your trading.

You will need to apply for a trading account with Commsec to actually trade. You can do most of this online.

You will need to be able to prove your identity with a drivers licence etc.

From the original post it would appear that "Steelcat" already has a "Commsec" trading account with a linked "CDIA" bank account.

Ghostbusters....

The film's theme song, "Ghostbusters," written and performed by Ray Parker, Jr., sparked the catchphrases "Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!";)


On a more serious note Steelcat, have you understood the advice that has been given to you?
