The CompareShares asked the people who use the products and services of online brokers in Australia to decide the top brokers in the industry.During the past four months more than 15,000 traders and investors voted on the website to chose the best broker for online share trading, CFDs, Forex, options, warrants, futures, margin lending and the best stock forum. The majority of traders voted for Global Forex Trading (GFT) as “The Best Forex Broker” in Australia.
