For clients who are maintaining USD in their RESP: On any day in which you trade a USD security in your RESP, you will be charged a $5 commission. This is a flat, per-day commission, no matter how many trades are made.
Questrade may earn revenue from the transaction of fixed income transactions based on the difference between the wholesale price quoted to us by a third party dealer and the mark-up applied by us to the third party dealer's quote. This mark-up is included in the price quoted to you, a standard industry practice. Fixed income securities transaction fees are subject to change periodically without prior notice.
