What do people think of CIBC Investor’s Edge?

<Do I need to pay it back to the same RRSP account (work) or can I do a different one like CIBC Investor’s Edge one? The payback (starting in 2025) can be to any RRSP account. <are all RRSP accounts able to be used to withdraw for HBP, CIBC says “easy access” to your funds with some accounts and not others, assuming it’s all liquid and not in investments? Easy access as in you fill out a form and once they receive it will take about 24-48 hours to transfer the funds as long as it's sitting in cash and not investments or in the settlement period. But since you are looking to buy this year, it shouldn't be in investments anyway.
I’m with CIBC investor’s edge and no APE yet
I’m with CIBC Investor’s Edge. I wouldn’t recommend it, except for the fact that I like selling way OTM naked puts. The margin requirement is only 5% of the strike price. When the puts are near the money, the other formula kicks in: (50% SP) - (OTM amount). They also give me a few days to wait/work my way out of a margin call, if need be.
That’s the thing support sucks they don’t know what’s going on. Some said I’m able to short puts others said no. I checked my trading permissions and they’re enabled. I think it’s just that I need to be 21 to enable margin. I might just use CIBC Investor’s Edge and pay $8.20 per trade. The premiums should cover it easily. What do you think? It’s my best option.
CIBC Investor’s Edge in Canada - >10 min phone call to request NOBO. Read me some disclaimers about Canadian Securities, I asked them to confirm that the information is shared for US holdings as well, they said yes absolutely. Basically, the only warning was that you’ll get all their stuff sent to you - every financial statement, etc etc and it can get overwhelming. No problem, send it my way. Proxy was specifically mentioned as well.
