  • Mutual fund portfolios are worth more at Questrade

    Every year, banks, brokers, and financial advisors take a cut of their clients' mutual funds, calling it a trailer fee. Typical.

    We believe that investors deserve to get that money back. Help your readers and viewers put their money back in their pockets with Mutual Fund Maximizer®, a service that rebates trailer fees.

    Mutual Fund Maximizer reimburses trailer fees directly to our clients*. It improves the potential for a portfolio's year-over-year growth through compound investing. There's no need to register; rebates will be applied automatically.

    To help you promote our campaign on your site, we've created new banners for Mutual Fund Maximizer (available in the  affiliate portal).

    If you need any more information about Mutual Fund Maximizer to include in blogs or articles, you can find it here.

  • You've got options

    Give your investments some legs. 17 of them to be exact.

    Questrade now offers 17 pre-defined multi-leg option strategies, such as collars, calendars, straddles and strangles. Want something more exotic? Create a custom strategy with up to four legs. All are available in our Questrade IQ trading platforms.

    What are multi-leg option strategies?

    Option traders with a more advanced approach to the markets can use multi-leg strategies to simultaneously buy or sell a series of orders with only one commission (plus legs). They can be used to take advantage of increased leverage, speculate on future price movements, to earn income, to hedge a position (or an entire portfolio), or to lower the cost of purchasing a security.

    For a comprehensive list of all available strategies, go to IQ news, and you can visit help and how to for more information.

    To help you maximize your referral success, we've created new multi-leg option banners, which are accessible in the affiliate portal.

    If you have questions or want more details about multi-leg options, please contact us at


  • Introducing Margin Power

    Power. We all want it.

    For traders and investors, power comes in the form of leverage, also known as buying power. Leverage is built into margin accounts. But TFSAs -- with all their benefits of building wealth tax-free -- are like cash accounts, meaning no leverage is available.

    We're pleased to introduce a powerful solution: an innovative new service called Margin Power, only available at Questrade. The concept is quite simple: our clients connect their margin account with the assets in their TFSA, and presto, they can leverage the assets in their TFSA to enter new positions in their margin account.

    What are the benefits of Margin Power?

    TFSA assets are no longer locked down.
    When a good market opportunity emerges, the increased leverage from the TFSA is available right in the margin account trading platform.
    There's no need to sell securities or transfer in cash to enter a new position*.
    Margin Power acts as an extra buffer against market fluctuations, just like overdraft protection.

    To help you maximize your referral success, we've provided all new Margin Power banner ads in the affiliate portal.

    *Using borrowed money to finance the purchase of securities involves greater risk than using cash resources only. If you borrow money to purchase securities, your responsibility to repay the loan and pay interest by its terms remains the same even if the value of the securities you purchased declines. 

  • Introducing Canada’s lowest commissions

    Did you know we have Canada's lowest commissions?

    This is a big deal to us, and we suspect it would be a big deal to your audience too. Whether they are options or stock traders (or both), we have them covered with our active trader program for everyone -- the Questrade Advantage®. Not active traders? That's covered too with our democratic pricing.

    Now here's the proof:

    The 95¢ stock trade
    The Questrade Advantage® is our active trader program. Register for an advanced market data plan, and your audience would get:

    Stock trades are 1¢ per share (min 95¢ / max $6.95) OR $4.95 flat per trade
    $6.95 option trades plus 75¢ per contract
    Buy ETFs for free

    The $4.95 stock trade
    Democratic pricing. No matter how much you trade or the size of your portfolio, you get great rates and lots of freebies.

    Stock trades are 1¢ per share (min $4.95 / max $9.95)
    $9.95 option trades plus $1 per contract
    Buy ETFs for free

    Questrade clients can buy all Canadian and U.S. listed ETFs commission-free. When they're ready to sell their ETFs, they'll pay standard commission rates.

    What is an ETF?

    An ETF is a pool of assets (like a mutual fund) that's traded intraday on the major stock exchanges (like a stock). ETFs are rapidly gaining popularity, and it pays (literally) to discover why:

    They offer a simple way to balance (and rebalance) a portfolio;
    They give traders room to adjust their strategies to daily value fluctuations;
    Their wide-ranging selection allows traders to create diversified porfolios;
    Their MERs (management expense ratios) are lower than those of mutual funds.

    To support your referral success, we've created all new banners and added them to the affiliate portal.
