The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) requires a minimum investment of A$500 (excluding brokerage) when purchasing shares in any ASX-listed security for the first time. This is known as the ‘Minimum Marketable Parcel' (MMP) of shares. The MMP applies to all CHESS-sponsored trades.
Two huge markets. One powerful platform.

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.

Join thousands of Australians making the switch to Stake to invest in over 2,000 ASX stocks and ETFs with CHESS-sponsored trades. When you transfer your ASX portfolio over $1,000, you get $3 off brokerage on ASX trades for 12 months. What's more, Stake puts you a step away from Wall St, with US$3 brokerage for trades up to US$30,000, or 0.01% on trades above US$30,000, and no FX fees per trade on U.S. stocks. Fractional shares also allow you to invest on Wall St with as little as $10.
It’s free to transfer your portfolio into Stake. Make sure to check if there are any broker-to-broker transfer fees that may apply from your departing platform.
From our end, transferring shares between platforms is a fast, free and paperless process that takes just minutes. Then the average time it should take for your ASX shares to land into your Stake account is 40 hours. We do everything in our power to complete transfers as quickly as possible, but sometimes there may be delays due to the departing platform not releasing the shares in a timely fashion.
Since the shares are just being transferred between platforms, this is not a taxable event as the investments are not being sold.
You’ve already got the ASX portfolio, so once it’s transferred across to Stake, you can manage your investing as per usual.
