TD Direct Investing (formerly known as TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage) is one of Canada’s largest discount brokerages. As a bank-owned online brokerage, it is able to offer clients the ability to manage multiple accounts (including personal banking) and products via the TD online platform. What makes TD Direct Investing stand out relative to most of their bank-owned peers are the amount of education they provide and their diverse set of trading platforms. Specifically, TD Direct Investing offers web-based and desktop platforms for active traders as well as longer-term investors, with the more recent addition of a mobile trading app.

What do people think of TD Direct Investing?

Called TD Direct Investing to DRS 2xx shares in my cash account. After the rep had confirmed all my details she just gave me a heads up that because there were so many DRS requests for this stock that the estimated time to complete the process was going to be 25-30 business days. I think last year when I did my first 50 presplit it was 14-21 days
Can you transfer between tfsa accounts or does it count as withdrawal? Ie I switched my funds from TD direct investing to TD easy trade
td direct investing is way diff than td ameritrade in the states... get your shares in a major bank and keep them there
Unless things have changed, TD Direct Investing and National Bank Discount Brokerage are the only two brokerages that offer RDSP accounts. So if you are looking to directly invest in ETFs or stocks these may be your only options. The other banks will allow you of use mutual funds.
