    E*Trade Canada reduced their commissions to $19.99 Cdn recently as a proactive response to IB and Datek's entrance into Canada. The small print you ask?

    You get the honour of being charged $20 if you make 75+ trades in a quarter!

    Oh, and if your order is not executed in one minute they'll waive your commission!! one minute!!

    So far no response from the banks yet. The interesting result I think will be that the most active segment of the market will leave. Although this represents a very small percent of their total clients it accounts for the majority of their revenue.

    It used to be similar a year ago with Schwab here in the states as a reaction to the discount brokers. You got to pay "only" $19.95 a trade after you'd done 30 trades that month at $29.95. No trader pays more than $5-$10 anymore.

    Does anyone know how many (or which) U.S. brokerages have ventured up North to Canada?

    Datek, IB, E*Trade...
