    Hello,

    I'm looking for a new online trading service and was wondering if people could recommend what they use - I am basically wanting something cheaper. I am currently paying $30 a trade with CommSec, below is what I like about CommSec:

    - When I buy a stock it takes 3 days before the money is withdrawn from my bank account (an account with another bank). I've heard that with some you need to deposit the money before making a trade?

    - They offer conditional trades, I'm looking for stop loss features, I think CommSec charge around $10-$15 for this.

    I've been thinking about DirectBell so any info, particularly regarding how they settle trains would be appreciated.

    Thanks.
