TORONTO, March 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, Questrade rolled out 95¢ stock
trades, the lowest commissions in Canada. The 95¢ commission is
available to any client who is registered in the Questrade Advantage™,
a program that also provides $6.95 option trades and a subscription to
Intraday Trader, a personal technical analysis tool.
Edward Kholodenko, President and CEO of Questrade said: "Innovation and
value are the two pillars of Questrade. We want to make it affordable
so all investors can take finances into their own hands. This is why
Canadians open accounts with us in the first place and why they stay
for the long term. Today's announcement - the 95¢ stock trade -- proves
our commitment to transforming brokerage services."
95¢ stock trades, available through the Questrade Advantage™, are available to every
client. There are no minimum account balances or number of trades per
month to qualify. When a client registers for an advanced Canadian or
U.S. market data plan, the client would be automatically enrolled in
the Advantage and get a choice of two commissions: 1¢ per share,
minimum 95¢ / maximum $6.95; or $4.95 flat. All options trades are
$6.95 with 75¢ per contract, and every trade accumulates towards data
The 95¢ stock trade is the most recent addition to a growing catalogue
of pricing and service innovations. In February, the brokerage firm
announced commission-free ETF (exchange-traded fund) purchases. In previous years, Questrade rolled out Mutual Fund Maximizer®, which rebates mutual fund trailer fees, and the first dual currency
registered account with USD in RSP®, which eliminates mandatory currency conversion fees. Other services
include commission-free bond trading and free U.S. streaming market
data with Nasdaq Basic in the firm's trading platforms.
