The other day I did the initial paperwork for a td direct investing account but now I come to find out they have a quarterly fee? (don't have the minimum amount to avoid this fee) Anyone else have any other recommendations?

My sister is looking for one that has the lowest minimum balance, no maintenance fees if meeting that balance and cheap enough trading commission (no limit to number of shares) but she will be more a buy and hold. RBC requires a min $15k and she might not have that much yet. She is definitely not in...

Looking for opinions on stocks to pick on the TSX. Opened up a TDDI account with an RESP and TFSA. The RESP is already invested in the E-series funds but I am looking to put $20,000 in my TFSA. Kind of looking at : CJR.B HRT TD ALA WJA or may just put it all into the E-Series.

Bought/sold $LGCY last year, few times in/out, still holding the bag of 300 shares and today found their tax slip in my mailbox. Has anyone got something like this for other MLPs? Do I have to file USA tax now? Crap.

Hi all! Sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this. I have been on RFD for a while now but have never really used the threads. I am looking for advice on online trading. Here are a few of the things I am looking for (in no particular order): Looking to invest $500-$1500 initial deposit to an...

stock

I had an NYSE stock that got delisted and therefore ineligible for TFSA. What is the tax process? I believe I must pay taxes on the value on the day it got de-listed. But since then I have actually lost value. can I claim the losses?

stocks

From my basic understanding, bonds are usually inversely related to stocks, however they are also inversely correlated to interest rates. If you believe stocks to be overvalued today at historically low interest rates where would be your safe haven? It seems as though interest rates will slowly go u...

I created this spreadsheet for my own use over a number of years. With all the questions about TFSA room I am sharing it here. It enables tracking TFSA and RRSP contributions and available contribution room. Unshaded cells are for data entry. Shaded cells are for display only so are locked. It can h...

There's a lot of mixed thoughts on the Motley fool (CANADA) . They pump out a LOT of articles, though not nearly as many as the US side. there's a lot of annoying CLICKBAIT HEADLINES and mysterious emails designed you to sign up for this and that. I hate that kind of approach with a passion - becaus...

tax

Hi .. my accountant mentioned some new CRA rule where changing currencies requires reporting. Can anyone comment on this? I am a bit surprised that a person - not a business - who exchanges currencies has to report gains/losses on it.

I just switched my account from BMO Investorline to Questrade to use F Series Mutual Funds since they said they permitted buying them.

Get around the 15 percent dividend tax? I'm guessing no but figured it might be worth a shot.

... markers have grown, but just for fun let's explore this statement literally. Is this even possible? Logistically how would someone even invest $1 in "the market" in 1800? There were no index funds, so would they have to buy a portion of every single company on the market at that time? And if ...

Looking in particular at VAB, which is an ETF of primarily Government of Canada Bonds. Few questions: - are the dividends simply just interest payments on the bonds that you hold within the ETF? - what causes any form of price fluctuation on units of this ETF?

^title. I see a lot of people were able to react quickly to the TD stock price drop on Friday and added to their positions. I typically don't have cash sitting around in my trading account and have to transfer from my chequing account which would take a couple of days. So I am unable to react quickl...

shares

I know the general rule is 'if it's not identical, it has a different tally for adjusted cost basis/cap gains', ie you can sell VCN and buy ZCN because they track different indexes. Does the same hold true for a share traded on a foreign exchange and an ADR? Say... oh, Shell, or BP, or something sim...
