    Nope. I'm getting tired of using "the force".

    It's been sick for the past 4 weeks surely they would have sorted it out by now.

    The Jedi force from Starwars - The Force is a mysterious energy field created by life that binds the galaxy together. Harnessing the power of the Force gives the Jedi, the Sith, and others sensitive to this spiritual energy extraordinary abilities, such as levitating objects, tricking minds, and seeing things before they happen lol.

    What an abject failure and total disgrace the whole ASB computer system has become.

    Hard to believe this is a major bank.

    Starting to make headlines in the media.

    Surely heads must roll.

    After putting up with excessive asb difficulties which have got a lot worse this year contacted ASB.
    They said that they prefer that Microsoft Explorer! is used.

    Well sorrry but I prefer Firefox which doesn't seem to handle ASB well.

    Looking to move to Direct Broking which seems pretty near the same as ASB except:-

    It looks a slightly better deal on brokerage charges - better maximums.

    And while Asb allow Ozzy dollars to be withdrawn as Ozzy dollars from ones cash management AU$ fund (for the next Ozzy Holiday) from any of their branches, whereas it seems that Direct require one to move ozzy dollars to NZ dollars and then Buy Ozzy dollars from the proceeds, which doesn't look good.

    Anyone know any other differences between ASB v Direct broking online share-trading sites??

    Previously used to Direct Broking and then now using ASB.
    The DB site was ok but ASB is pretty useless by comparison. Things I find poor with ASB are:
    - Doesn't automatically update a portfolio. (completely ridiculous)
    - Some trade data is lost. For instance in the history it does not record the price on bought/sold for. You have to go searching for the emails sent to get the information
    - There are strange data processing problems when executing a trade it hangs with "spinning wheel" so you don't know if the trade has been placed or not (it seems that it has)

    Thanks for that TFA
    Seems that DB is not much better
    ASB still drives me crazy with an inability to cancel and order in firefox and the possibly same hanging spinning wheel as you describe with db.
    'praps they are all bad as there isnt any competition in nz

    While trade are rare and reasonable guess I will stay put for a bit longer.

    If you have an AUD bank account - you can get AUD$ paid out to that. It isn't mentioned on the website, but if you ring them up, they are happy to do it.
    The portfolio works well for me (it would be nice if they had a daily movement view though).
    Haven't used ASB yet - a need to use IE makes me even less inclined to look closer at them.
