Discount Brokerage Weekly Roundup October 25 2013

Best Online Brokerage is Kind of a Big DealComing into the home stretch of October, equity markets are continuing push higher.  The constant string of ‘good news’ is something that may lure more investors back into the markets, which is also probably why there are some major initial public offerings (IPOs) also being announced.

Against the backdrop of optimistic markets, some discount brokerages also got some news to cheer about.  This past week, a discount brokerage launched its new mobile website, one more “best online brokerage” was crowned and there was some interesting chatter in the investing forums about keeping cash ready in a trading account and what can go wrong if it it’s in short supply.

Disnat’s New Mobile Site Ready to Roll

Canadian discount brokerage Disnat officially rolled out their new mobile website (available at The new site offers quite a substantial upgrade over their previous mobile website (reviewed here).  There are quotes and market updates available directly on the front end (without having to login).  There’s also access to videos and event info so the mobile site offers some of the core features of the full site.  Look out for the updated mobile website review coming soon.

The Best Online Brokerage – For Now

BMO InvestorLine announced this past week that they had been awarded  the title of “best online brokerage” in the 2013 Q3 evaluation by Surviscor.  BMO InvestorLine managed to edge out competitors Qtrade and Scotia iTrade by 3% landing a score of 84% overall versus Qtrade and Scotia iTrade who both scored 81%.  The winner of the Q1 2013 evaluation period, Scotia iTrade, enjoyed a brief stay atop the discount brokerage field however as these results show, the industry is highly dynamic and the best discount brokerage today might not still be the best tomorrow.

 Around the Forums

A popular idiom among traders is ‘keeping some powder dry’.  This refers to having some cash on hand so that if or when an investing opportunity presents itself, there is a way to take advantage of it instead of having to watch it go by. Cash in the account seemed to be the theme with two interesting posts about discount brokerage accounts this week.

Hurry up and wait

In the first of two threads from Canadian Money Forum,  user “Peterk” was feeling a little restrained from the delay of moving money between bank accounts into brokerage accounts.   Sometimes the delay could be a good thing, however in markets timing is half the battle.  Check out what fellow users had to say about it here.

Keeping cash in a discount brokerage account

Feeling marginalized

So what does happen when cash isn’t available in the trading account when one wants to make a purchase? Well if the account is a margin account, the transaction may still take place but it will be made ‘on credit’ i.e. on margin.  In the following thread, Scotia iTrade caught a bit of heat from forum user “mrcheap” after this user was apparently dinged for margin interest while cash was en route from a yet-to-be-settled trade.  It’s a valuable lesson to investors that they have to pay attention to the settlement dates (usually T + 3 for stocks) between execution and settlement.

Margin interest charged between trade and settlement

That’s it for this week’s roundup.  Keep on your toes because while the markets might seem like a treat today, there’s still a good chance it has some tricks up its sleeve. Have a safe and enjoyable weekend and most of all stay classy!

Discount Brokerage Weekly Roundup October 18 2013

After all of inescapable deal making drama in Washington this past week, it appears that stock markets had already placed their bets that events would unfold with a deal being struck.  Rather than a disastrous crash, The S&P 500 hit an all-time high and Canadian traders also shrugged off their Thanksgiving turkey hangovers to push the TSX to close at its highest point since July 2011.

What does all of this mean?  It seems a lot of folks will be asking that question, so in this week’s roundup, there was one Canadian discount brokerage who offered up a trader’s perspective on what happens next.   In this post-Thanksgiving week, one discount broker got into the giving spirit by offering a chance to win some free trades while another discount brokerage officially rolled out some new features to their trading interface.  Finally on the roundup, it looks like a proposed switch over from a major discount brokerage is now rolling out, albeit somewhat slowly for the likes of a few investors.

What’s the Deal with the Deal?

If Jerry Seinfeld chimed in on airplane snack food, one can only wonder what he would be asking what now that there has been a deal to extend the debt ceiling in the US.  It just so happens that a video from TD Direct Investing’s investor education section looks into that.  In this episode, Ryan Lewenza  (North American equity strategist & portfolio manager for TD Waterhouse private investment advice) laid out his thoughts on the market sentiment in response to the debt ceiling deal.

Trading Gravy

Questrade got into the Thanksgiving spirit by offering to give away 10 free trades. The deal was announced on their blog on October 9th with the contest rules and regulations stating that it would run until October 16th.

Later on in the week though, a couple of tweets by Questrade seem to suggest that the contest is still on although it is not quite clear based on the rules for the contest when this offer expires.

Taking Quotes to the Next Level

As hinted at last week, the new feature from Qtrade that got released was an addition of free level 2 trading data on Canadian stocks to their equity order screen. It should be pointed out the quotes are ‘snap’ quotes not streaming quotes so users wanting to see updated information on a particular stock or ETF’s trading activity will have to hit refresh.  As this feature is limited to Canadian equities at the moment, it might be of interest to those looking for additional depth information on smaller or less liquid names.

Canadian Discount Brokers React to J.D. Power Survey Results

A recent article in Investment Executive this past week covered the recent results from this year’s J.D. Power’s discount brokerage rankings. In particular, the article highlighted the win by National Bank Direct Brokerage as well as how discount brokerages, such as BMO InvestorLine, are trying to figure out how to respond to some of the information and advisory needs of self-directed investors.  Interestingly, while BMO InvestorLine may have been first out of the gate to launch an ‘on demand’ advisory type feature, other discount brokers appear to be opting for providing portfolios that investors can ‘follow along with’.  To learn more about the J.D. Power discount brokerage rankings for 2013, click here.

Rolling Out the Canadian Carpet

Around the forums, the chatter on discount brokerages was somewhat subdued this past week. There was, however, important news on the roll out of Interactive Brokers Canada account transition announced earlier this year.   The following post from forum user Mark77 in the RedFlagDeals forum suggests that Interactive Brokers Canada clients are having their account restrictions updated to reflect the changes that were announced earlier this year.

RFD Forum on Interactive Brokers Canada

Despite the short week, there was still lots to digest (including the turkey!). Have a great weekend all and for those who’ve made it this far, here’s a tusk-in-cheek cartoon from cartoonist Mike Luckovich on the recent Washington shenanigans.

Discount Brokerage Weekly Roundup October 11 2013

After a bumpy week in the markets, it is nice to get to Friday.  For Canadian readers, it’s Thanksgiving long weekend so that means Canadian markets will be closed on Monday while everyone digests the news and a whole lot of turkey.

On the heels of the major announcement last week from BMO InvestorLine, this week there was a flurry of activity with several Canadian discount brokerages launching new features for research and trading.  The news wasn’t all smiles and sunshine though. While one discount brokerage was improving access to low cost funds, another discount broker decided that margin trading had started to become too risky for some stocks and subsequently raised margin requirements.  Finally, a couple of forum posts on a pair of Canadian discount brokerages were worth sharing this week.

CIBC Investor’s Edge Announces New Features

After their recently announced RESP administration fee elimination, it seems like CIBC Investor’s Edge is again moving to improve their service offering to Canadian self-directed investors. This time, it looks as if research tools and education support are being given a lift.  Specifically, this past week, CIBC Investor’s Edge announced that they are rolling out an improved ETF research centre with resources from Morningstar (such as screeners, educational materials and more) powering the section.      ETF education and support materials are offered by other Canadian discount brokerages, with discount brokerages such as National Bank Direct Brokerage, Qtrade and RBC Direct Investing also offering “ETF Centres” too.

RBC Direct Investing Lowers Investing Threshold on Series D Mutual Funds

In a news release this past week, RBC Direct Investing announced that they are lowering their investment minimum on their Series D mutual funds from $10,000 to $500.  This will certainly be of interest to those investors with smaller portfolio sizes and those looking for lower Management Expense Ratio (MER) investment products.   For more information on the RBC Direct Investing Series D Funds, click here.

Qtrade Launches New Features

Major bank-owned discount brokerages weren’t the only ones busy launching new features, a major independent discount brokerage is quietly rolling out some of their latest improvements for users. This past week, Qtrade launched several new or improved features for clients including:

  • A new model portfolio feature that allows clients to ‘follow’ different portfolio types
  • An improved ETF centre that provides detailed information and research on ETFs (powered by Morningstar)
  • Improved account transfers between brokerages
  • Improved new issues centre
  • Improved trading interface with improved quotes, order tracking and help resources

Look out for a more detailed look at these new features in an upcoming post. In the meantime, users might be interested to know that are also some hints by Qtrade of further exciting changes coming to their trading interface. Stay tuned!

Interactive Brokers Hiked Margin Requirements for certain stocks

Interactive Brokers laid the smack down on margin traders this week by hiking margin requirements for many recently popular momentum stocks.  A move like this begs the question – why now? The following two articles (Article 1 & Article 2) from Zero hedge tackles why Interactive Broker with a very interesting series of theories. Be warned though, these articles are fascinating but could definitely leave readers feeling a little nervous about market directions in the near term.

From the Forums

This past week, sifting through the chatter on discount brokerages on Canadian investing forums landed two interesting threads on CIBC Investor’s Edge and TD Direct Investing (TD Waterhouse) from Canadian Money Forum.

The first was a great discussion started by the user “2tire2work” who was interested in getting their personal finances in order – specifically getting going with some investing they had been thinking about.  Click here to read more about what others in the forum had to say about which discount brokerage to choose.

TD Direct Investing vs CIBC Investor's Edge

In the second discount brokerage related post, dividend payment time was on the mind of the user “Gibor” who was curious to know why their dividend payments were getting posted to an account at CIBC Investor’s Edge at a different time from than at their account with TD Direct Investing.  There were lots of interesting answers by forum members on this one – click here to read the thread.

Dividend payments at CIBC Investor's Edge and TD Direct Investing

That brings us to the end of the roundup for this week.  Have a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving long weekend (for the Canadians!) and a great Columbus Day for those in the US.  As a quick reminder, Canadian stock markets will be closed on Monday but US Markets will remain open for trading.

Discount Brokerage Weekly Roundup – October 4 2013

Keep Calm and Trade OnIt’s Friday once more and with it brings a whole slew of discount brokerage related news and activities.  As the calendar rolled over into a new month, there was the usual hubbub with new deals being offered and updated by some major discount brokerages.  This past week also saw one major Canadian discount brokerage sponsor an investor education roadshow, and another celebrate a milestone birthday with a launch of some mobile trading platforms.

Deals Galore

In the October count of discount brokerage deals, there are more deals happening from major (bank owned) discount brokerages than have taken place in the recent past.  Large discount brokerages such as RBC Direct Investing and HSBC InvestDirect that historically have been less visible with their promotions, are now offering some competitive deals.

To keep all of the deal action straight, there’s a new feature in the deals section called ‘deal analytics’.  This section will take the deal info one step deeper to provide a quick way to digest all of the deal information. Stay tuned as this exciting feature will continue to evolve into an awesome tool for investors looking for a deal when opening a discount brokerage account.

Will That Be #ForHere or #ToGo?

BMO InvestorLine has had a pretty busy week.  On Friday of last week, they officially turned 25 years old and like most 25 year olds, they are becoming obsessed with mobile phones.   Earlier in the week BMO InvestorLine had a big focus on their new mobile trading apps/platforms by pairing their latest deal with the launch of their mobile platform.  In one of the most unique promotions from a discount broker, BMO InvestorLine is offering 250 commission-free mobile trades (good for up to 2 months of trading).  For those with opening balances of over $100,000 there is also a $250 cash back offer.   Checkout the deals section for more information.

On the Road Again

One of the most recognizable figures on Canadian business television, Larry Berman, kicked off his 12 city cross country tour this past week in Calgary. These sessions will be promoting investor education, his investor education course and his company.   One of the major discount brokerage sponsors of the event is Scotia iTrade.  They’ve paired up with Larry Berman to provide the platform (FlightDesk) on which audience members can see Berman do his famous “Berman’s Call” style stock analysis in person.   Look out for a review of the session that landed in Vancouver coming up shortly.  To find out more information about the events, check out the schedule here.

Interactive Brokers Metrics

As they do every month, Interactive Brokers has released the latest set of trading activity statistics for September 2013 showing that on many of the key metrics, such as DARTs (daily average revenue trades), margin loans and number of accounts are all up well over last year at this point and incrementally up over last month.  For the active trading segment of the market Interactive Brokers is definitely proving hard to catch and with recent changes to Interactive Brokers Canada, the same might become true on our side of the border.

That’s it for this week.  With all that’s been going on in the news, this market is about to get far more interesting before it gets boring. Have a great weekend!

J.D. Power & Associates Canadian Discount Brokerage Rankings 2013 – Part 1

For Canada’s discount brokerages, fall not only means a busier season with investors, but for many of them it is also the time of year they either dread or cheer. The stretch of time between September and January is typically when a number of Canadian discount brokerage rankings get published – something that could be known as “rankings season.”

Just before the end of September, one of the biggest of the ranking companies, J.D. Power & Associates, officially announced their 2013 Canadian Discount Brokerage Rankings.  This year’s winner, National Bank Direct Brokerage, finally managed to grab first place by narrowly edging out the reigning winner for the past four years, Disnat who came in second and BMO InvestorLine who placed third.

In the first of a two-part series on the 2013 J.D. Power & Associates discount brokerage rankings, I’ll take an in-depth look at this year’s award winner, how they managed to land in first and what the ripple effect of their win might mean for self-directed investors as well as the Canadian discount brokerage industry as a whole.  The second part in the series will drill down into the numbers from this year to see what they reveal about the sentiment of investor satisfaction with discount brokerages and how it has shifted relative to prior years.

For those of you interested in learning more about the awards are produced, check out the special series on the JD Power & Associates Canadian discount brokerage rankings.

How “The Best” Was Won

Getting to number 1 has been a story of persistence for National Bank Direct Brokerage (NBDB).  Over the past 5 years, NBDB has consistently scored among the top three Canadian discount brokerages in terms of investor satisfaction yet first place was always elusive.  This year, however, NBDB scored 757 (out of 1000) and narrowly managed to edge out the reigning winner Disnat (who scored 750) by 7 points.  While the margin is small, a victory is still a victory.

For NBDB the win is a sign that they continue to hit the right notes with their clients in terms of providing an experience clients feel is satisfying – the metric the ‘investor satisfaction’ survey is designed to measure.  As is explained in the special series on the discount brokerage rankings, what goes into measuring “investor satisfaction” might help account for why NBDB was able edge out Disnat this year.  Fortunately, the President of National Bank Direct Brokerage, Nancy Paquet, helped to provide some background into what might have contributed to her firm’s win this year.  As a bonus, she also shared her views on the Canadian discount brokerage industry and provided a glimpse into how this industry continues to meet the challenges of innovation demanded by clients and competitors.

Discount Brokerage Deals & Promotions – October 2013

ArchivedDealsThis October the deal wheels keep on turning.    Overall, it looks like competition at Canadian discount brokerages is heating up with 6 discount brokerages currently offering some kind of promotion. To help make sense of the deals, this month we’re rolling out Deal Analytics (explained below) which will help provide support to individuals trying to compare offers from discount brokerages.

September saw a number of discount brokerages start to jump into the deal pool in a big way.  RBC Direct Investing, Scotia iTrade and HSBC InvestDirect were just some of the big names that launched some sizable offerings.

October is sure to be filled with many announcements and surprises so be sure to check back through the month as several discount brokerages will be launching either new features and/or promotions to go with them.

Expired Discount Brokerage Deals:

Investors who love their AirMiles will be sad to see this deal depart, however the InvestorLine Airmiles promotion, which expired at the end of September had a fairly decent run.

Extended Discount Brokerage Deals:

Scotia iTrade’s refer-a-friend deal has been extended again, this time with the expiry date set to October 31st 2013.  A rep from Scotia iTrade confirmed that it is likely that this offer will continue on, with the expiry dates continuing to be updated as required.

New Discount Brokerage Deals:

Of course one of the biggest deals launched this month is the BMO InvestorLine offer of 250 commission-free mobile trades and $250 cash (depending on the size of the account deposit).  This deal is a unique offering because it signals a definite interest by BMO InvestorLine to have clients use their mobile trading platform.  The fact that the time frame of the deal goes through until January is also another indicator that BMO InvestorLine is prepared to double down on deals and mobile.   For those interested, be sure to read their terms and conditions as there are important restrictions (TFSAs don’t qualify for this promo for example).

Deal Analytics

This new addition to the deals section is intended to help provide an improved way of seeing what kinds of deals are being offered by different discount brokerages.  Starting this month, a table summarizing the “Free Trade / Commission Credit” offers will provide an overview of discount brokerages offering ‘commission free’ trading and those offering commission credits.  This section will likely evolve from the current format so if you have any feedback on what you’d like to see in there, drop us a note here.

Commission-Free Trading Offers

To read the commission-free trading offers, the numbers contained in the cells of the table refer to the number of commission free trades being offered.  Beside the number is another number in round brackets (ex. 60d) which refers to the time period associated with being able to use those commission-free trades.  So, for example, an entry like 100(60d) means that there are 100 commission-free trades being offered with an expiry date of 60 days.

When a commission credit is being offered, an estimated range of how many free trades the credit would result in is offered and is contained in square brackets (ex: [5-10] refers to between 5 and 10 trades). The actual amount of the commission credit is denoted with a “CR:” (for example CR:$300).

There may be entries that are combined with offers, and in these instances there will be a “+” symbol beside the number of trades to indicate there may be additional parts to the offer.
