Established in 1999, Questrade is one of several independent Canadian online brokerages. Like their peers, Questrade offers online trading for stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, options, and bonds. Additionally, Questrade also has online trading for currencies, CFDs, and gold bullion. They also support dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs).
Since their inception, Questrade has been actively working to position themselves as a top choice amongst price-conscious investors and traders. Being both newer and independent means that Questrade has been able to grow their brand via innovation. Historically, they have been either first in launching products (such as US-dollar RSPs) or quick to respond to trends for self-directed investors.
