    They charge me $25 per quarter for no trades.

    They charge $19.99 per trade.

    I moved to Questrade. Emailed them and asked why I should stay compared to Questrade - just a standard reply - a form about reading their FAQ. No real response.

    They charged me $125 to close my account.

    Where you are getting your numbers? They are out-of-date compared to website. But $25 is a deal with quarterly inactivity! Website says you should have been charged $40!

  3. That's horrible service. Etrade and Tradefreedom are a joke. But if you trade in Canada, why don't you go with IB? Only $1 per trade, and way better account security. But you do have to make $10 CAD in trades every month, or they'll charge you the difference.

    If you don't trade that much, Questrade is the best way to go in Canada.

    Good luck with your new account.
