Online Trading

When you open an account with us for an online trading, we will prompt you with a series of questions in the financial instrument you wish to trade, to find out about your investment history, trading knowledge and experience in the particular financial instrument you wish to trade. These questions determine your suitability for the financial instrument you are requesting to trade. We care that you can reasonably handle the financial instrument.

Investment opportunities at your fingertips

Australian shares

Trade shares, ETFs, listed investment companies, real estate investment trusts, warrants and more. Over time, Australian listed securities have proven to be among the best performing asset classes, providing opportunities for both capital growth and income – often in combination with tax concessions from franking credits.

Global Markets

While the Australian share market offers excellent investment opportunities, it makes up less than 2% of the world’s total by market capitalisation. International share investing gives you access to the other 98% – including industries, technologies and opportunities unavailable in Australia. Aurora Markets provides you with unparalleled access – to 135 markets across 33 countries.


Currency trading can be a profitable way to diversify and protect your portfolio – but currency markets can also be volatile. We can help you take advantage of the opportunities and manage the risks, with the ability to trade 23 currencies worldwide, direct access to interbank currency trading quotes, no hidden price spreads and no mark ups.


Protect your portfolio or profit from emerging opportunities with Aurora Markets’ global market access to options, futures, warrants, forward contracts and swaps. Our advanced platform technology and trading tools support your sophisticated analysis, giving you a trading edge. Our platform also enables approved clients to trade contracts for difference (CFDs).

Whatever your trading style, we have the resources for your success

Proven option strategies

Options can help you protect your portfolio and take advantage of trading opportunities, yet they also have risks. Aurora Markets helps you take advantage of the flexibility and power that options can provide – while informing you of the risks to avoid.

How they work

Options are derivatives based on the value of underlying securities such as shares. An options contract offers you the opportunity to buy or sell the underlying asset, depending on the type of contract you hold. That means options enable you to benefit from both rising and falling markets.

A call option gives you the right to buy a security at a fixed price on or before a fixed date – so you can profit from a rising market by locking in a price in advance.

A put option gives you the right to sell a security at a fixed price on or before a fixed date – so you can benefit from a falling market or protect your portfolio, by locking in a sale price before the market falls.

However, options are complex products and you need to fully understand the risks which include potentially unlimited losses. The Aurora Markets team can help you harness proven, sensible option strategies suited to your appetite for risk and level of investment experience.

Benefits of trading options

  • Options enable you to generate wealth from both rising and falling markets – offering you profit-taking strategies that are independent of market direction.
  • You can protect your capital by using options as a hedging tool, reducing your risk of capital loss – like a form of investment insurance. You can set a floor to ensure that your losses do not exceed a certain amount.
  • Exposure to shares can be gained for a much lower cost by using options than by buying shares. And if the trade goes your way, then you benefit just as much as if you bought the shares.
  • Due to their flexibility, options also open up a broad range of advanced trading strategies for sophisticated investors. Options allow traders to craft their positions based on the risk-to-reward criteria of each opportunity.
