    Oooh, yes. I don't like that either. How do you get rid of that? Some nice new features but mainly cosmetic.

    On the positive side they have finally put a stop loss selling feature on the site - only 3 years after Direct Broking introduced theirs.

    Wish I had used it more often. Can't say Phaedrus didn't tell us.

    I just need to vent about the new ASB securities website. I have given it some time as new things take time to adjust to. The only improvement I can see is the volume on the watchlist. How do you get the watchlist to show alphabetically?

    There used to be historical figures for companys which has gone.

    The whole revamp seems to be about reducing service and getting people to the buy sell screen as quickly as possible. I think it is a backwards step from the old website.
    I have only ever used ASB securities. Does anyone know how they compare in regard to research with other online brokers?

    also as awkward as anything to get from chart to chart (not that their charts have any useful indicator control...so I don't know why I am complaining)

    Has anyone had any luck negotiating the comission/spread on the retail NZD/AUD rate?

    I havent tried, but they should be giving us closer to wholesale rates. I do it through my workplace when i want to transfer funds, every hundred bucks here or there counts.

    Anyone know what the red exclamation mark on the left side of a stock in the automated portfolio means? I called ASB and asked them a while back and the lady didn't know - went and asked someone and came back and said it probably means there's an announcement but that can't be correct as I've got marks with no announcement. My guess is it's something to do with a percentage change in the stock but not sure what.

    In the web page source, that exclamation mark is called "new-trades-icon" , if that helps...

    Recently i made a buy order on some shares and it was only partialy fulled. The next day the price increased to a price i didn't want to pay and i decided i wanted to put the funds into a different company so i amended the order to a low price that it's not going to go to for just 1 share. So that if i decided to buy this company in the next week or so i wouldn't have to make another order and incur the $30 trade fee.

    Does this work? Or am i charged $30 everytime i amend the order? If an order buys through two trades is it still 1 fee?

    Cheers CJ, noticed someone had a sell order on FBU for $150 guessing they are doing the same or maybe just made an error.
