Anyone got some advice for me as I look to get into shares?

I've read The Intelligent Investor and I'm a Business student so I have a bit of an idea about the market, P/E ratios etc.

I'm more after advice relating to where to trade etc. What are some of the best websites for live quotes, company history etc? Any good phone apps?

And in terms of buying and selling what's the best place fee wise?

Banks look cheap atm.

I just use the westpac channel because I bank with them. From memory there wasn’t much difference between them and the cba channel which was the cheapest.

Hey, you can put your money in funds management. Investing in mutual or international funds can be a great idea, as they are the long term investment type. Also, investing in Australian funds management, secure your money. Presently, people are getting more interest in investing in international funds. You can also invest in international funds.

Selfwealth have been quite good for me since I swapped to them. $9.50 per trade. The app is not the greatest but it works. I'd be looking at shares that pay a dividend and re-invest it through the dividend reinvestment plan to avoid brokerage and compound. Get on hotcopper and read. All things to look at.

Totally depends on your risk profile.

<edit> misread your post...

I use nabtrade myself, but i dont recommend it. I'm shopping around and currently trying out IG Markets - but thats not an endorsement.
