I'm in Canada and use Questrade. Overall pretty happy. Their mobile app sucks though just saying. I use their IQ Edge program on the computer and also pay $100/month for real time data and 5 cent per share trades (no other fees).

If you're doing basic ETF trades, they're free to buy and about $5-10 to sell so good for that.
Have you looked into Canadian Couch Potato? I also have a few other Canadian related finance blogs if you're interested.




As for today. FACK, I had been holding a stack of SCTY, like a huge amount as a % of my portfolio, was buying all the way down sweating it, average cost about 31, getting worried around 26/27, then trimmed at 31, sold most of it at 33/34 and watched it rise to 37/38, said damn, then went to 40 and was like double damn, and now, fack me it jumped 25% in one goddam day. I mean I didn't know about the legislative thing coming so in a way it's nothing to do with SCTY's actions per se, but damn, what a miss.

Yesterday's sentiment seems to have passed.

Seeing the drop of oil and other commodities over the past 1-2 months has been nothing short of astonishing. It seems every single day, WTI drops 1-2%.

Dollar strength fuelling some more oil slide, deflation worries, high yield woes, risk off flattening of the curve...

Not sure if the FED expects us to believe in their 4x 25bps in 2016 or just laugh.

Stocks should modestly rebound after their long halt of 2015 even if YoY earnings are dreadful. Sell morning VIX spikes like in August and profit.

I think after these years of low interest rate people are going to be even more sensitive to developments or lack thereof in the global economy. To add, with the gradual increase in interest, I feel the general public are going to view everything moving forward as being "expensive" relative to what we had going in the days of yesteryear. In the US people are use to sales when shopping for example. I think this past decade only reinforced that kind of psychology. Now that this discount is sort of fleeting, does that mean less business? Isn't this going to hamper the economy some more? I don't see this as being a positive outlook in the short term and in turn can we expect more days like today? This is awful.

It's only broken when you hold it GF.  When you dump your position, let us know.  It is bound to go up.

At this point the only reason my trading accounts are in the green are because of my VRX gains.

 

I keep buying oil related stocks, but I keep feeling like they could just as well go bankrupt as stay afloat. Maybe will buy more of the super majors so I can at least get the dividend yield if there is a 1980s style recovery.

I'll settle for a 2009 style recovery.
