Place a single order

You can trade with Macquarie Online Trading: Single Order by visiting trading.macquarie.com.au and logging in with your Macquarie ID and Password. 

To buy or sell, click on the buy/sell icon on the left-hand menu. This will bring up the order pad where you can buy and sell shares and managed funds. Complete the order pad with:

  1. Order Type: Single
  2. Client: The account you’d like to trade on 
  3. Select Buy or Sell 
  4. Type the 3-digit ASX Code that you’d like to buy or sell and select the ASX code from the drop down. You also have the option to view market depth by clicking on the Market Depth hyperlink 
  5. Select the Quantity or Value*
  6. Select the Price options of either Limit** or Market to Limit***
  7. Once you’ve completed the order form and ensured it’s correct, click Next
  8. Review the order and input your 4-digit PIN to place the trade. If you don’t know your trading PIN, please call 1800 098 648.

*Minimum Order: If you do not have an existing shareholding in the security, the minimum marketable parcel you need to buy is $500 worth of shares, excluding brokerage. You can then subsequently increase your holding by purchasing less than $500 worth of shares. 

**Limit: A limit order is where a maximum price is set in a buy order or a minimum price is set on a sell order. If a buy limit price is placed higher than the current best sell price, the order will execute at the best sell price currently in the market. If a sell limit price is placed lower than the best buy price, the order will execute at the best buy price currently in the market. Please note that if the market doesn’t reach the set limit price, the order won’t trade. Limit orders can be placed at any time but can only be executed when the market is open. 

***Market to Limit: A Market to Limit order is placed at the best opposing offer when buying shares, or the best opposing bid when selling shares. If there are insufficient shares in the market to complete your order, the trading balance of your order will remain on the market at the best opposing bid/ask price until more buyers or sellers come in at that price. 

Place a multiple order

Multiple orders allow you to buy or sell multiple shares for one or multiple accounts at the same time. 

To use the multiple order functionality, go to trading.macquarie.com.au and log in with your Macquarie ID and Password. Complete the order pad with:

  1. Order Type: Multiple 
  2. To add a new order, click the + on the left of the client number 
  3. You can trade the same or different assets across one or many clients that you have access to

  5. Once you’ve completed the order form and ensured it’s correct, click Next

Get a new trading pin

When you set up your first Macquarie Online Trading (MOT) account, you’ll be issued a trading PIN via email once the account is opened. This PIN is used to authenticate trades within the MOT website. 

The PIN numbers are linked to your Macquarie ID meaning if you have multiple MOT accounts under your Macquarie ID, you will use the same PIN for each account.  

If you’ve forgotten your trading PIN, please call 1800 098 648 and we can reissue you a new PIN.
