What share trading platforms are available in Australia?

If you’re ready to dive into the stock market, finding a share account that works for you is the first step to success. You might opt for a full service broker if you want advice or go for a cheap online share broker if you want to keep trading costs down, and make your own investment decisions.

Will I have access to share trading market data with an online account?

Most online share trade platforms offer a range of market data packages, which you can use to keep a finger on the stock-market pulse. Finding a share account that comes with access to some handy trade publications can give your investments a leg up.

Are there fees for trading shares?

It seems a tad unfair that your share-market cash might be whittled away by trading fees - and even less reasonable that trading at a loss also incurs a fee. But most accounts come with some kind of brokerage fees, so make sure you compare your options to keep this cost to a minimum
