  1. I use comsec. I haven’t tried the iPhone comsec application yet, but it’s on my list.
    I prefer to stay with a reliable and stable share broker, than going with someone else, not really knowing who.

  2. Yep. same here. Commsec it is. However, they could do a better job with the graphs and ASX releases that are presented once you login..

  3. I use commsec.com.au too. It’s good to know that you’re dealing with a stable organisation when trading shares, since commsec is a part of the commonwealth bank here in Australia.

  4. Comsec online trading is good, however, their graphs really suck. Surely they would offere something more up to date and more dynamic. ALso, their stock market ASX company releases seem to be late sometimes. I normally watch ASX website directly and then compare and do more research with comsec.

  5. I agree about the graphs. they could definitely be better. Maybe something like what Google Finance or Macquarie Edge is doing.

  7. I would definitely recommend www. comsec.com.au for new users. Comsec fees are quite reasonable and the interface is pretty good.

  10. I like to charge credit card that I got with my commsec account. it hooks up to the cash account and can be used as a credit card to access my commsec funds. A nice addition.

  14. Finally commsec updated their graphs. It’s not much faster and more interactive.
