I am looking into opening a discount broker account, I have been doing some research on investing but am fairy new and uneducated in this. I currently have my RRSP and TFSA in mutual fund portfolio through a broker where I am suppose to be getting a "deal" of - 1% on fees through my union, I currently i pay 1.49% for fees. From what i researched i can open a discount broker account and invest in ETF's portfolio and minimize these fees to like 0.4% or less meaning another 1% + savings which sounds great. My only problem is my ignorance towards investing, I would like a broker that could give me some advice as need and I would like be able to invest my money with minimal trading and moving around. Any suggestions on the right discount broker for me and EFT's are the best choice or if I am on the right track and should just stay with my mutual funds. Any information, education would be much appreciated.
