First Two trades since I moved my account to Questrade and joined Pennystocking. I have learnt a lot in the last couple of months! First: BLIN long, thought it was on support from pre market but shorts are winning this one. Second: INSY long, wanted to buy in consolidation, bought a bit to early and stopped out to early. GOod learning experience. Stuck to where I was going to sell but that ended up being the bottom and it did what I thought it would afterwards of course! I would have sold at .60 (previous day high) for $150 profit but I take a small loss and learn a lesson. Time will tell if I have to increase my stops. (Arrows on charts indicate buy and sell)

Questrade is one of the best Canadian broker. For those who want to create an account with Questrade : A margin account allows you to buy all U.S and Canadian stocks (including PINK sheet). A TFSA account will help you save on your taxes, but limits you to NYSE, NASDAQ and TSX. My referal code is : 726326357418342 With Questrade: Real-time data level 1 is 20$/month Transaction fee is 4.95$ per trade up to 495 shares and then charges you 0.01$ per share until you reach 995 shares. Real-time data level 2 is 89.95$/month Transaction fee is always 4.95$ per trade. Thank you.

@SeanLacap Greetings, I'm from Toronto and I noticed that you use Questrade. I'm thinking of opening an account with them, I just wanna hear your thoughts about Questrade, How much are you paying in fees and market data package? Is it better than bank owned brokerage stocks? Cheers!

I don't really like Questrade for anything other than long-term buy and hold investing. Their platform is nice, and their fee structure is great, 4.95 flat per buy and per sell. And the data package is like 90 dollars a month, but either partially or fully rebatable if you incur enough commissions in the month to offset that. But aside from long term buy and hold investing, I can't recommend it for day trading. Right now, I'm just trading long side, so Questrade is great, but shorting with Quest

My opinion on the best penny stock brokers - Etrade and Interactive Brokers have high account minimums and don’t accept people from certain countries so it's best to for people with smaller accounts to use Questrade, Schwab, SpeedTrader, Scottrade and Fidelity. I would highly recommend avoiding brokerages like Robinhood and Suretrader. Suretrader are based off-shore, allowing you to bypass the Pattern Day Trader rule but have recieved a lot of negative reviews from previous customers. Robinhood are free but you're at a serious disadvantage to your competition, it's like showing up to a gun fight with a knife.

[TimAlerts] hey, was wondering if someone can help me out. I'm from Canada and using Questrade as a broker right now, their platform's not as great as I'd like. my question is how are people finding the stocks that are going r/g or g/r or have huge volume and spikes during the morning? Example, NVCN today went r/g and spiked for 10cents. I saw some people catch this move but I was too late..


@Ehtrader Hi, I am from Canada, Is it not difficult for Questrade to have shares to short?

Ehtrader Aug 10, 16 5:42 PM

They typically won't have shorts for the low float runners, but they are able to get most locates for you if you call the trade desk

Ehtrader Aug 10, 16 5:42 PM

Which broker do you use?

jayjaydagumboy Aug 11, 16 11:24 AM

I use TD waterhouse but have difficulty in shorting stock. Do they charge more if the trade desk locate shares to be shorted? thanks for the advice
