1000's of 5-star reviews

As a former commsec user, I love how easy the app is to navigate and with ASX now available switching between markets is easy.


I've never written an App review before, but Stake really has continued to wow me.


I started using Stake for US trading, and recently (very easily) transferred my ASX portfolio across to utilise the cheap trades.


Switched from nabtrade. Much better experience. Far cheaper.


A well designed and easy to use app to trade on the USA and AUS markets.
