I just opened an account at Questrade. The experience was painless and prompt. I noticed one thing very quickly about their platform, that I usually research before hand.... not this time!! Where are the stops? I can't set a bracket order!!

Apparently the TSX doesn't allow stops unless they are stop limit orders. Questrade has something called VTSO, not exactly sure how it works yet. I do know that without stops, trading is riskier. IB offers stops on the TSX, probably simulated in their system. I'll have to do more research. Feel free to offer what you know if you're reading this.

  1. use questrade if you have enough money to burn. Or if you wanna lose your money quick enough. Because when their server down, you can't send any order or modify any order, and if you try to call their 1888 number you will be on hold forever.
