Anyone have a list of online discount futures brokers in Canada?
I believe IB is the only one that has a "Canadian" Division
But it doesn't matter just open an account with any US broker.
You can't open an account with a US futures broker if your not an american.
Thats my understanding.
I strongly recommand IB.. they have a division based out of montreal!
Yes you can.
no portfolio margin allowed in canada...
Well, IB USA doesn't allow Canadians anyways - I've asked a couple times.
One big reason I wanted that, as just above, there's no portfolio margin at IB CAN. That would be nice to have.
So, what brokers accepts Canadians? Just wondering since I would probably use IB anyways.
IB is the only potable way to go in Canada.
