    "This new record and the continuing brisk trading highlight the current confidence in the market," CommSec general manager Michael Blomfield said.

    "CommSec has only exceeded 27,000 trades four times in our history - including twice this week - and this is the first time we've cracked the 28,000 mark."

    The high levels of client trading were likely to continue going forward, Mr Bloomfield added.

    "The Australian economy remains in good shape, companies continue to record good profits and remain upbeat about earnings growth over the current financial year," he said.
