1st november, i opened a questrade account. had a promotion that paid 88$ in comission (ecn and other fees not included) but have only 60 days to "spend" it.
because i had less than 5k value in the account, it would cost me 25$ quarter inactivities fees, so i have the choice to put more money in or sell everything at loss (at that time)
any, sure wealth simple trade is not for everyone, but i am really happy to have a no minimum quarterly fees, no tradings commisions fees.
of course, its missing lots of investment products, but i guess, thats the price to pay for a no fees investing broker app.
