I used TD DI, Scotia iTrade, and CIBC IE. CIBC is primitive and far inferior.
TD DI has made improvements over the last two years, but is still inferior to itrade in too many areas. So I moved most of the funds to iTrade now to trade there. The $4.99 commission is good (vs $9.99 with TD DI), as is the prime rate for margin borrowing (which TD won't give, but adds a percentage above prime). iTrade's backend support is much stronger, whereas TD DI just seem to have too many junior staff who don't know enough.
$4.99 if you make 150 trades per quarter
$9.99 if you make 30 trades per quarter
otherwise $24.99 per trade
