Belguy:Fees are often negotiable. The larger your account, the more negotiable they are!!!
Currently, a $4.95 trading fee for accounts worth in excess of $500 thousand should be negotiable. This doesn't necessarily have to all be in one account but could be family assets over several accounts in the same institution.
Does anyone out there currently pay a lower trading fee than that?
Ive heard many bad things about Questrade, although ive also heard many good things. I can honestly say though that most of the stories ive heard is that sometimes they screw around with your money and ocasionally there are random charges on your investing account that they try to "sneak" through etc.Just my opinion...
After shopping around for a new broker in the last few months i came to the conclusion that TD is the best offer out there.
Sure, Questrade offer 4.95$ per trade but their support dont even come close to what TD offer
IB fee's are even lowest than Questrade, however, no registered account (RRSP, TFSA, etc) are available. IB is probably the best choice for active traders but dont fit well for buy and hold passive investors.
it's still unofficial. But they say - unofficially - that thinkorswim personnel are already physically present at tdw canada. They sit with the tdw reps but they have their own groups, pods, offices, etc. Rumour says the plan may be for them to open for business under their own logo, but they'd use the big green infrastructure.
please what's so great that you'd go for them in a heartbeat ...
