Hello there, I realize that this brokerage has been discussed before in previous threads but I just wanted to clear a few things up and get some advice. I started investing in stocks about 9 or 10 months (am a university student) and have made only about 15 or 20 trades in total to date (basically buying and holding only 5 or 6 stocks) I am currently using TD Waterhouse, excellent service, but a rip off of trading fees. I want to move away from the banks. The stocks I trade are low value, from 20 or30 cents to 2 or 3 bucks and thus large volumes. Even though I'm a inactive trader, it seems Questrade would be great as its 17.95 flat for unlimited shares under $3, and $0.01 per share for shares above $ 3, a lot better than TD. Also I just want a simple cash account using the Basic Webtrader platform. Since I don't trade often Cybertrader would be useless to me? Am I correct? It seems like a no brainer but I just want to double ckeck if I'm missing something here especially since everybody seems to be a mad trader here (compared to me at least). ECN fees look low. Am I right then in saying nobody should have an account with the banks.(except those needing handholding which I don't) Is there other criterion I should be looking at since I'm an "inactive trader" maintenace fees, transfers fees, how to move money around in the account? If anyone could offer some advice or experience I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
