Below we have listed some of the most common Australian stock brokers for your convenience. They are listed in alphabetical order. Brokers are used to buy or sell shares on your behalf from the ASX (Australian Securities Exchange).There are basically two types of brokers. Discount brokers who give no advise and simply place the trade for you. Then there are full service brokers who can place trades but also give advice on what shares to buy or sell. They are more expensive than discount brokers. Discount online brokers generally charge around $20 per trade. If you want to get started buying shares, choose from the list below.
