@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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnqadcBE57I

@MayorGeld Hi, I'm curious about execution at Questrade. I currently use TD Waterhouse and whenever I trade volatile stocks on the NASDAQ or OTCBB that are low priced I have to have my order reviewed by a Rep before it can get executed. At questrade is there fast executions that don't have to go through this process?

I had the same problem using TD. I called and they said that the invest rep review takes very little time, but I tried it and ended up missing my price while they "reviewed" the trade. From my personal experience my trades on Questrade have been executed pretty fast. However the main difference is that at least on Questrade, whether a trade is executed quickly or not, it is at least "open" immediately. As opposed to TD which reviews the trade even before it is open to the market.

[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?

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
