online trading accounts spike in popularity

Perhaps the high level of volatility and media attention in the stock markets are causing people to rush to open new accounts at Canada's online brokerages. Many popular online brokerages are reporting increases in opened accounts over the past few weeks to the tune of 70 - 91%.

Rob Carrick of The Globe & Mail has released his annual ranking of Canadian online discount brokerages.

If you are looking to open a self directed investment account, consider Questrade, where most trades cost $4.95/trade. They are offering $50 worth of free trades now by signing up via the moneygardener by visiting Questrade HERE.

$50 in free trades from Questrade®

You know I'm a sucker for a good deal... If you are thinking of switching brokers, or you are just getting started - Questrade® discount brokerage has made me aware of a referral program where new customers get $50 in free trades if they are referred by an affiliate. Considering that their commissions are just $4.95, that's 10 free trades, just for joining this Canadian discount broker. Just click on the word Questrade®, or the banner at the bottom of the blog and use 'MG' as your Referrer ID when filling out your application.

Why should you use my Referrer ID?

"Referrer ID codes are also offer codes that referrals can use to take advantage of various exclusive bonuses such as free trades, platform upgrades and more. " - This is a quote from Questrade®
