New CIBC USD to CAD Foreign Exchange in Investor's Edge

What are your thoughts on the new feature? Anyone try it yet? Is the exchange rate comparable to doing norbert's gambit?

Did you ever find out the answer to this question? Is it still worth it to do Norbert's Gambit?

Anyone know the answer to this?

All the info I found online are the old system, I want to know if there is a fee to use that foreign exchange option. According to the site below, they charge 2%. And along time ago, they didn't charge any exchange fee when they only allowed holdings in cad.

They take about a penny on the dollar more than the current exchange rate
