Practicing my movement plays on CBAY and MARK today. Ended green, but need to figure out a better process for order entry/exit in my broker interface (Questrade). Had a loss when I couldn't make edits fast enough.

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!

Hey how do like interactive brokers since you left Questrade? I’m about to switch my account from td to them (Canada)

@Slayer Hey Stan...have you looked at Questrade? Commissions look good. I am going to try their demo platform and see how it looks. Nice trades today bud.

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 10:42 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 10:42 PM

Which broker do you use?

jayjaydagumboy Aug 11, 16 4:24 PM

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

[TimAlerts] Made a premarket order of $TSRI at 8:58am. I put my limit at 5.50 but it automatically got filled at 5.98 with a 6.68 limit at 6000 shares. Never had this happened before. I sold 1000 shares at 5.99, kept the rest in case it pops, went downhill too quickly to cut my losses, and sold in the 4.70, later noticed Tim sold it too. Minutes later it goes back up to 5.70s! Lost $2242. Lesson: Watch out for weird Premarket orders glitches on and cancel order ASAP

@AirplaneJane Hello Jane, I live in canada and started with Questrade($2000) about 6 weeks ago and now down to $900. Not sure if i chose the right broker but ill admit that I am a newbie and have not purchased tims dvds yet but i will asap

TheStudent Jun 30, 16 2:15 PM

The questrade charge $5 per trade flat fee when you chose. Get the knowledge first. Market is always there.

@AirplaneJane i'll admit , I was not paying attention to news and had a reverse split bite me in the a$$ XGTI 1900 shares down to 584 and it went on a down trend . My stupidity gave me a hard lesson to Pay Attention !

[TimAlerts] in $GEVO yesterday eod at the dip when it held , considered the catalyst too...textbook. Sold half the position at 0.73 :( and out the rest at 1.29 this morning. (Although wanted to sell at 1.90 but could not with Questrade. All in all made over $500 on a $900 account


Go go go $CCXI , for once that there were shares to short at Questrade. Yes, 'shares to short at Questrade', sounds unbelievable, doesn't it? And the shares were available from the web interface too. I didn't have to wake up super early to call their trading desk this time (trading desk which usually fails to find anything even for a whole trading day).
