An open question (invitation?) to anyone who has a recommendation. I currently reside in Canada and trade fairly actively. I trade only equities on the TSX, TSX Venture, NYSE and Nasdaq and some stock options. I currently use TD Waterhouse but am tired of their platform and their high commissions (especially when compared to the US side of their business). When I compare my commissions from TD to someone like IB, I could save about $400 a week. I don't have a large account but I do generate commissions. I would like to have per share pricing with NO minimums. My first choice would be IB, but they recently declined a friend of mine who has similar trading stats to mine. I guess business must be really good for them right now and they don't need more clients. Any suggestions? I would like to hear from other Canadians who have accounts elsewhere as I find the non residency thing to be a problem, but all suggestions and comments are appreciated. As a side note, after reading through some of the threads, some of you guys would have a heart attack if you were stuck with the service you receive in Canada from the online brokers. I'm quite sure I would find the US platforms to be "trading nirvana" compared to TD Waterhouse in Canada. Thanks to all who reply.
