Okay I'm looking to open up as stockbroking accounts.

What I'm looking for is...

A) my money to be held in a reputable bank
B) low brokerage fees (somewhere around $10-$20 per trade)
C) no ongoing account keeping fees/charges
D) access to (free/cheap) 3rd party charting/live data/20 mins delay is ok

Other things that important to me.....

Stop losses
Ability to draw in support + resistance levels
General technical analysis
Ability to save charts etc
Availability to leverage would be good

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I've looked at CMC Markets, E*Trade, CommSec but heard mixed reviews. Can can someone recommend an online broker? ........ or is there any reputable international brokerage firms say with a Singapore or Hong Kong office that any anybody here can recommend? Australian brokers seem a bit expensive - at first glance anyways.

Anyways I know I may not be able to find a broker that offers all of that.

Just starting out? you are looking for right sort of things but maybe should have included 'lays golden eggs' in your long list of wants - none are perfect so look for best match to what is most important to you. Many investors use more than one broker for different needs.

FP Markets got pretty lo ratings in http://www.canstar.com.au/online-trading/online-share-trading-star-ratings-report/
I use etrade, and commsec for trading. I found most of the bigger broking forms are able to provide what you a looking for. You will need to get use to using the platform and the features espieccially on how stop loss work.

You will need to find a trading platform which suits your style, setup some dumb accounts with some providers first see how the platforms works.


kind Regards
