Don't get me started on market orders :mad:

I honestly don't know why anyone makes them. Every time I have done it I got ripped off. Last time I lost .20 per share or more than 10% on the sale.

That's when I learned limit orders and now when I buy I get good deals not the highest price of the day or the lowest price of the day when I sell

Just thinking about irritates me :D
Ok so I started a TFSA at Questrade a few days ago sent in my ID by email. Everything goes off without a hitch until I got the bright idea to call them this morning and this afternoon a couple more times. Bizarrely the phone just kept ringing and ringing and ringing but no one answered. I sincerely hope this is not a foreboding of the future. Is this normal?

And Itrade has my ire up as well i have been waiting in queue to trade on two different stocks for over a month..... well because of their computer problems tomorrow i cannot extend them for more time so I guess I just have to start over. But they did answer the phone.
