Stock filter

The Stock Filter, brought to you by Morningstar, allows you to build a query based on up to 130 different filters, displaying a list of stocks that meet all the criteria you have selected. 

For example, you can build a simple query to show all the stocks with a P/E Ratio less than 12, or you could use two filters to show all stocks with P/E Ratio less than 12 and a Market Capitalisation greater than $1,000,000,000. You can then further edit or remove filters to fine-tune your query.

What’s the difference between our standard and pro platforms?

Unlimited linked and conditional orders

Our free linked orders allow you to use stop loss and take profit orders to help improve your risk management by applying entry and exit strategies. With unlimited conditional orders, including trailing stop loss and take profit, you can select the level that will trigger the purchase or sale of shares online allowing you to follow your trading and investment strategy even when you’re away from your desk. 

Four reasons to consider trading with linked orders

1. Risk management at the click of a button

With linked orders there are 2 order types you can apply to help manage your risk: stop loss orders and take profit orders.
These 2 order types can be attached to a buy order at the click of a button, so that when you buy shares you also set the conditions under which you want to sell the shares; a stop loss in case if the market moves against you, or a take profit to lock in your profits if the market moves in your favour.

2. Automatic triggers to save you time

With linked orders you can set up your entry and exit strategy and leave it to manage itself. When you choose to add a stop loss order and a take profit order to a buy order, they will act in parallel. In the event that one of these conditions triggers, then the other will be cancelled automatically.

3. Intelligent processing sequences

A linked order is intelligent. Where you set up a linked order to follow a sequence, each leg will only become active once the preceding leg has been completely filled. If the preceding leg is cancelled or purged (by you, by the ASX or because the expiry date has been reached) before being completely filled, then any subsequent legs will not activate. Now that’s smart.

4. All this at no extra cost

We believe that you shouldn’t have to pay extra to be able to manage your risk. That’s why we don’t charge any additional fees for processing linked orders or conditional orders.

Market depth

Our market depth tool is one of the most sophisticated in Australia and is available to all customers.

It displays where your order stands in the queue, giving you the flexibility to amend your order and allows you to see the full market picture: every buyer, seller, share, order and price level.
