Key features

The CommSec Share Trading Account and the CommSec account with WebIRESS subscription  really are premium platforms for traders who want the latest insights, analysis and access to data. 

With the basic CommSec Share Trading Account, traders have a range of brokerage options depending on the size of their trade and whether or not they use a linked CommSec account or an external account to conduct the trade.

  • Via a CommSec Cash Account: Traders will be charged $10 per trade under $1,000, $19.95 for trades between $1,001-$10,000, $29.95 for trades between $10,00-$25,000 and then 0.12% for trades over $25,000.

  • Via an external account: Traders wishing to use an external account will be charged $29.95 for amounts under $10,000 and 0.31% for trades over $10,001.

When it comes to different securities, traders with a Commsec Share Trading Account will have access to Australian and International shares, Options, Warrants, CFDs (contract for difference), Managed Funds and EFTs among others.

Traders will even be able to buy Commsec Share Packs - diversified portfolios picked by the CommSec Investment Management team which contain six leading Australian companies. Share Pack categories include Market Leaders, Capital Growth, Income and Tax-Effective Income.

The Commsec Share Trading Account also comes equipped with tools and information any trader can make use of - from live share data, daily videos, charts and reports to a help desk even the option to set up instant alerts with the latest share information. For $82.50 a month, active traders will also be able to access the CommSecIRESS trading platform which provides real-time data-streaming along with a heap of other handy features.

Who is it good for

The Commsec Share Trading Account could be a great option for Australian traders looking for a comprehensive share trading platform which is rich with information, insights and the potential to trade a range of different Australian and international securities. Active traders could also make use of the CommSecIRESS trading platform for that next level of analysis if they’re happy to pay the $82.50 monthly fee.

Any catches

While CommSec’s brokerage fees are roughly on par with those offered by the other major banks, they may be more expensive than those of other share trading platforms, so it’s worth weighing up those costs against CommSec’s extensive insights and other features.

    So easy to understand.

    Newbie to trading, I received a share bundle for my 21st birthday. With a little dabbling here and there, now at 33 I not only have a small portfolio of shares, I have purchased my first home and have nearly finished a Diploma in Financial Planning. CommSec's site was so easy to understand, that it grew my interest into a career!
