If you are new to stock market, there are many companies that offer online share trading facilities. In Australia it is worth checking ComSec and eTrade. Both allow users to join online and start trading as soon as the sign up data verified by mail. ComSec, for example, includes two bank accounts – one for share trading and another for cash management purposes, with a high interest rate. The company also provides a free charge card to have immediate access to funds. The company provides market research facilities online, including market watch, historical graphs and access to companies’ stock market announcements.
Share trading can be done online via secure website, over the phone or using a specially created iPhone application that offers full functionality of online trading, anywhere you have access to mobile internet network.
