I can't say anything about other broker because I've always been with RBC. But can't complain about RBC. So far so good.

I traded more frequently a couple years ago and they never did that for me.disallow wrote: ↑Feb 13th, 2017 2:59 pmJust moved my investments back over to RBCDI from Questrade in the last couple months. With the price drop to $9.95/trade all the time for RBC, and the fact that QT charges ECN fees on trades (which add up), I felt it was a good move. Time will tell!
One thing I recall from trading with RBC in the past, is that when you traded the same stock several times in one day, they would revise the commissions the next day and you'd only get charged one fee for buying and one fee for selling. Do they still do that?

But I posted yesterday, Sunday, so it's supposed to be the same number that Friday Close right? It shouldn't change.RolandCouch wrote: ↑Feb 12th, 2017 7:19 pmLast price is the last price shares were traded at. Your Intraday holdings page may show a different number than the quote page, as the Intraday has a 20 minute time delay unless you have a very high balance or are very actively trading, then I believe it is live - the watch list quotes will be anyway.

1. Yes, but you will need to mail stuff or take to the branch and if you don't have an RBC bank account you may need to fill out forms in branch to verify identity.MoniTron wrote: ↑Feb 20th, 2017 10:38 amHello,
I stumbled onto this thread and glad to see so much support as there isn't really a "tutorial" for RBC DI. Just a couple of questions I'm wondering if you guys can help me out with:
1. Can I register for an RRSP/TFSA DI account online without calling in?
2. I currently have both an RRSP and TFSA account under the RBC branch. If I were to open an RRSP and/or TFSA now under DI, are these separate from the branch accounts? And would it be possible to transfer funds from those account under the branch to the DI accounts without affecting my contribution limit for the year?
3. When mutual funds pay out dividends/interest/capital gains, are they automatically re-invested to purchase more dividends or are they cashed out? Do I have to call RBC to tell them which option I prefer?

It's the other way around. If you buy/sell the fund during the week-end, you get the price at the closing of the next buisness day (monday). You can never be sure the price you're gonna sell or buy with mutual funds. I suggest you read up on how things are priced and how it works before going at it alone, especially if you want to buy stocks by yourself.MoniTron wrote: ↑Mar 3rd, 2017 7:27 pmI have a question re: buying and selling fund prices, maybe someone can help me with. I've asked RBC and they didn't really give me a satisfactory answer.
I am currently using a Practice Account. My question is re: the discrepancy in the mutual fund unit price when buying and selling vs unit price listed on the stock chart/page (NAV). For example, I bought units from the fund RBF557 on Feb 4 (a Saturday) meaning it should have bought at the closing price of Feb 3 (Friday) which was 18.523. Then I sold them on Feb 26 (Sunday) meaning it should have sold at the closing price of Feb 24 (Friday) which was 19.224. However, this is not true when I checked the 'Activities' page. The price on the 'Activities' page BOTH for when I bought and sold the funds showed up as 17.425. From this, it means that I did not gain any capital, which should not be true as the unit price increased from 18.523 to 19.224 from the time I bought it to the time I sold it. I'm very confused and don't want to start investing real money until I can figure this out.
