Sign up & fund your account with A$100 or more and receive US$10 of Tesla stocks on Superhero. T&Cs apply.

Highlights

  • Perhaps the closest like-for-like replacement for Stake is Superhero.
  • Both platforms give you access to trade Australian and US markets.
  • You can trade US stocks for free on both, but Stake is cheaper per trade than Superhero for ASX shares.
  • You can invest into your SMSF with both and neither charges an inactivity fee.
  • The main difference between Stake and Superhero is the ability to earn Qantas points on Superhero (the only broker to do so).

Highlights

  • While Stake has Australian and US markets, Australian eToro users are limited to US markets so far. (This will change though.)
  • eToro offers access to more types of investments outside of equities, most notably crypto, but also commodities and CFDs for more advanced traders.
  • You can stake a number of crypto assets on eToro and get decent yields, which is not possible with equities-only Stake.
  • eToro's defining feature means you can copy other traders, so you don't have to do the research.
  • Unlike some other Stake alternatives, you can set up a demo account with eToro and give it a go risk-off.

Highlights

  • Sharesies is the Kiwi version of Stake. Both have a similar trading experience, so existing Stake users would feel at home moving over.
  • Get access to NZ markets in addition to AU and US markets with Sharesies.
  • For ASX trades, Sharesies is cheaper than Stake (and most others for that matter).
  • Something you can do on Sharesies that can't be done with Stake: give someone a gift to invest in their account.
  • Sharesies offers recurring buys. Set up your order — you can choose presets or customise your own — and take advantage of dollar cost averaging.
