Cheaper brokerage for small investments
"Potentially even cheaper brokerage if feasible." "The ability to invest in smaller regular periods using auto invest but at at an ultra low cost % trading fee (0.05%) all the way down to smaller trade/investment amounts. E.g $500. Once you have some more scale - could this be achieved by pooling trades from multiple users at least for a small number of ETFs? E.g VAS, VGS, A200." "The lower the barrier to entry commission-wise and minimum investment amount-wise, the more I lean towards that platform. Right now, even though Opentrader is not offering automatic investing, the $5/trade for up to $2,500 really made me think hard, because I can invest twice as frequent with Opentrader and have more time in the market to maximise the chance of quicker compounding."
Show dividend growth history of ETF's & LIC's
"The dividend growth history of the EFT's LIC's I'm looking at. Dave (Strong Money Australia) does one of the better jobs of this that I've seen, in his LIC reviews: https://www.strongmoneyaustralia.com/lic-review-afic/ That's his for AFI. I think it's great because it contains both the number - average of 4.18% since 1993 - but also shows the graph of this. Straight away I can see that they smooth dividends, so if it's important to me to have an income that DOESN'T drop when the market does, I'll add them to my shortlist."
Able to view today's profit/loss of the shares you hold per day
I just transferred from CommSec. on their commsec app, they have tool to check how much you earned or lost per day. It also gives you real time updates and also calculates total profit and loss on the stock you hold. Added an image from the app. I had shares listed there until yesterday. If I was making money it would show me in green with percentage and if not, It's red... I wonder if this can be implemented. Thanks
