It is of great interest that Comsec are now the cheapest at $14.95 but you have to open a cash management account. Westpac is $15 with no restrictions.

I predict the next barrier is the $10 mark. After this trading becomes unprofitable for the broker. I just hope somethought has been put into this with all these online brokers having additional capacity such as EMC or Network Appliance filers.

Remember E*Trade USA Outages, it didn't create any positive publicity. It will be interesting to see what other brokers will do.
