Trading using the EBROKING Trading Platform could not be easier. For your convenience the Trading Process is detailed below.

 
 
Login to the EBROKING Trading Platform

To place a trade you will need to login to your EBROKING Trading Platform. This can be done from any page on this Website in the Account Login section. Details of your EBROKING Account Number and Password will be provided to you on the establishment of your EBROKING Trading Account.

 
 
Check your EBROKING Settlement Account Balance

You must have cleared funds in your EBROKING Settlement Account before you can place a trade. You can view your EBROKING Settlement Account Balance by clicking "Shares" and then "Cash Balances" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account.

BUYING ASX Listed Securities

To place a BUY Trade under the EBROKING Trading Platform you simply need to click "Trade" and then "Buy" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account. When you BUY ASX Listed Securities, the Trade will be settled from the EBROKING Settlement Account (see above). Importantly when you place a trade, the funds are accessed automatically from the EBROKING Settlement Account to settle trades. Trades are settled under the T+2 settlement system. That is, trades are settled 2 days after placing your trade. It could not be easier.

 
 
BUY Trade Confirmations

When you execute a BUY trade using the EBROKING Trading Platform, trading confirmations will be forwarded via email. Confirmations can also be viewed and downloaded by clicking "Shares" and then "Confirmations" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account. Similarly you view your Trading History by clicking "Shares" and then "Order History" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account.

 
 
SELLING ASX Listed Securities

To place a SELL Trade under the EBROKING Trading Platform you simply need to click "Trade" and then "Sell" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account. When you SELL ASX Listed Securities, the settlement proceeds will be automatically deposited into your EBROKING Settlement Account. Trades are settled under the T+2 settlement system. That is, trades are settled 2 days after placing your trade. It could not be easier.

 
 
SELL Trade Confirmations

When you execute a SELL trade using the EBROKING Trading Platform, trading confirmations will be forwarded via email. Confirmations can also be viewed and downloaded by clicking "Shares" and then "Confirmations" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account. Similarly you view your Trading History by clicking "Shares" and then "Order History" when you are logged in to your EBROKING Trading Account.

 
 
Straight Through Processing

All Trades executed through the EBROKING Trading Platforms are executed using Straight Through Processing (STP). Straight Through Processing is where your order is sent directly to the ASX Market, without any human intervention. Some online brokers use a system whereby your order is sent to a dealer who then has to approve or reject it and manually enter it into the market. Obviously in times of market turbulence, this could cause significant delays in getting the order on the market. The EBROKING Trading Platform approves or rejects the order and place it directly on the market.

 
 
Conditional Orders

Conditional Orders are instructions based around a set of criteria or market conditions (referred to as a 'trigger') that must be met before your trade is actually submitted to the market for execution. When the trigger criteria specified is satisfied, the Broker will submit your order to the market. Whilst there is no guarantee that the trade will be executed the aim of Conditional Orders is to protect your profits or ensure you do not miss trading opportunities when you are busy. By setting Conditional Orders including Stop Losses you can BUY and SELL ahead of time. Conditional Orders are FREE with EBROKING.
