Additional Features

One fantastic feature of Questrade is the ability to buy, sell, and hold physical gold for $20 per trade. The broker will also lend up to 80% on gold bullion in non-registered accounts. This gives customers the ability to buy gold on credit and borrow on the bullion already in their margin account. The client's gold is safely stored at the Royal Canadian Mint. The cost of storage is $0.10 per ounce per month for gold, and $0.01 per ounce per month for silver. 

Questrade also allows its clients to hold U.S. dollars. This feature is unique among Canadian brokerage firms. It could save some investors a small fortune in currency conversion fees.

Customer Service

A company is only as good as its customer service. It holds true that any customer support team should be able to provide accurate, timely and relevant information, whenever needed.

Questrade’s customer support team can be reached via phone Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM ET to 8 PM ET. This does fall short of other stock broker’s offerings, for example Scotia iTrade offers support until 9 PM ET as well as support on Saturday from 8 AM ET to 6 PM ET.

Questrade also offers a convenient online live help where account holders can chat with a live agent. There is also the option to visit a learning centre in person, although there is only one location across Canada - on Yonge Street in Toronto. Unfortunately, this falls short of the dozens of seminars that TD Bank offers across all of Canada.

Customer service is where a company can make or break a reputation and it is well understood by management.
