Has anyone on these boards traded warrants? I like the idea of gaining additional leverage. And unlike options, I can trades these within a TFSA.

There are some that have decent enough volumes to get in/out without a large spread.

Actually, I think you can get TSFA accounts that allow options trading. I requested this feature from my discount broker when I set up my TSFA, so I know that this option is available.

You can trade options, which are really just shorter term warrants, in registered accounts. You are just restricted to first and second level trades. Puts and calls and covered calls in other words. I hold YRI.C in my RRSP.

Just keep in mind options aren't for amateurs as you can very easily and quickly lose your entire principal (more in some cases - outside registered only)

yes, long time ago (20-years in fact) my first intro was when I was issued warrants on TRP.

I never let these mature or exercised them, I simply sold them for a profit

The other side of that is any listed warrant (not to be compared with options) can be traded - bought or sold like any other stock within a TFSA, RSP or trading account

What is warrant?

hi there,

I am a student and I want to start investment. I have searched a bit and I found that buying warrants can be a good place to start for people with limited available capitals. Can anybody provide more information about warrants? It is a bit vague for me. Where and how I can buy warrants? what factors should I consider to buy a specific warrant?

Thank you very much.

If you don't know about it, you shouldn't be investing in it. Consider warrants and options are such difficult and high risk products.

If you are starting out, try this: http://canadiancouchpotato.com/
