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.

To start buying U.S. stocks from Australia, you’ll need to open an account with a broker like Stake.

  1. Sign up and download the Stake stock trading app. You’ll need some I.D. to create your account.
  2. Once that’s done, go to Stake Wall St and choose your deposit method and speed. The funds will arrive in dollars, then you’re ready to purchase U.S.-listed stocks.

With Stake, you can trade 6,000+ U.S. ETFs and stocks. From Apple (AAPL) to Microsoft (MSFT), or TSLA to AMZN. Discover all the U.S. listed companies you can trade and find out the most traded U.S. shares with Stake investors.

Our only fee per trade is our brokerage fee: $3 brokerage for trades up to $30,000, or 0.01% on trades above $30,000 (in AUD for Stake AUS and USD for Stake Wall St). There's no FX fee per trade, only for Stake Wall St deposits and withdrawals. Learn more about BPS.

Our main sources of revenue are: the FX fee and associated fees (e.g. Instant Funding) when you transfer into or out of USD; interest earned on cash sitting in accounts; Stake Black memberships; Stock Lending; and our low brokerage fee when you buy ASX shares.

Transferring your U.S. shares to Stake is paperless and fast. In fact, when you transfer a U.S. portfolio over $500, you're rewarded with a free Dropbox stock.

With Stake, investors can buy U.S. shares with as little as $10, because we offer the ability to trade fractional shares on some of the world’s biggest companies. So if you thought you needed large sums of money to access the U.S. stock market, think again.
