As with any form of investment, it's important to be aware of the financial risks involved with share trading. Before you start investing, we recommend having an investment strategy in place to minimise losses. 

It's important for investors to understand the stock brokerage fees in place before they start buying shares, ETFs, options and other investments.

With most share brokers, the brokerage fees are usually determined by trading frequency. For example, the most CMC Markets will charge for domestic shares is $11 or 0.10% per trade, whichever is greater.

It is also important to be aware of any additional resource costs, such as inactivity fees and different rates for international shares.
