CommSec has won the award for the 12th year in a row. “It has con­tin­ued to set the stan­dard for the best fea­ture-packed on­line bro­ker award by pro­vid­ing tools and sup­port to as­sist traders at all lev­els,” says Emily Hor­ton, re­search an­a­lyst with Canstar.

Users re­ceive ac­cess to re­al­time up­dates, tech­ni­cal an­a­lyst re­ports on desk­top and mo­bile, and live chart­ing tools to help make more in­formed and timely de­ci­sions and take ad­van­tage of mar­ket op­por­tu­ni­ties, she says.

It also pro­vides ac­cess to in­dus­try re­port­ing and com­men­tary from ex­perts who an­a­lyse the mar­ket and econ­omy.

“Ed­u­ca­tion is paramount on the plat­form, with tools aimed to in­crease in­vestor knowl­edge cov­er­ing topics from trad­ing fun­da­men­tals to ad­vanced trad­ing con­cepts and port­fo­lio man­age­ment,” says Hor­ton.

CMC Mar­kets joins the win­ners’ cir­cle in sec­ond spot. “CMC de­liv­ers plat­form fea­tures that are op­ti­mised on desk­top and mo­bile and pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion tools to give clients trad­ing in­sights and op­por­tu­ni­ties. “At the time of rat­ing, in­vestors were able to ac­cess over 2200 do­mes­tic eq­ui­ties. They also get ac­cess to 12 charts, in­clud­ing ad­vanced types such as line break, kagi and renko, all of which can be cus­tomised and saved.

“Tools are there to as­sist in­vestors at each stage. So even those new to the mar­ket are able to find ex­ten­sive help within the chart fo­rum com­mu­nity, which al­lows in­vestors to utilise tech­ni­cal re­search as well as share and dis­cuss trade ideas,” says Hor­ton.

Nab­trade comes third for the third year run­ning. “This plat­form of­fers free on­line tu­to­ri­als, live on­line help in mar­ket hours and other help­ful ed­u­ca­tion ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing trad­ing tips and strate­gies to pro­vide insight for in­vestors at ev­ery stage,” says Hor­ton.

In­vestors can view global mar­ket data and com­pany re­search, in­clud­ing news and mar­ket depth. The global scan­ner tool spots in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. In­vestors had ac­cess to 1500 do­mes­tic eq­ui­ties and 10,000 in­ter­na­tional eq­ui­ties, says Hor­ton.
