    Hi guys,
    I'm quite new to this and would like to know if there are any other companies in Australia that have international shares trading service besides Commsec, as Commsec fees are quite high?
    Any help would be highly appreciated.
    Cheers.

    Hi 3ricko,

    Trading securities overseas is more expensive as your trade is getting clipped twice, ie, once from the local broker you are using and then a second time from the overseas broker. The above list is of online brokers, you'll find that full service brokers will charge higher fees.

    Cheers,
