How much does the Questrade Advantage cost?
The Advantage is part of any subscription for advanced market data packages.
I registered for advanced market data, now what?
If you register to start your data immediately, then the Advantage starts the next business day. If you register to start at the beginning of the month, then the Advantage (and all the perks) will kick in at the same time.
The default stock commission is $4.95 (flat). If you want the 1¢ min / $6.95 max plan, login to myQuestrade and visit the market data tab. The change will be in effect for the first of the next calendar month.
Do I want the 1¢ stock commission or $4.95 flat?
You know your trading style better than anybody else. If you tend to trade smaller numbers of shares, you likely want the 1¢ plan. If you tend to trade larger numbers of shares, the $4.95 flat plan may be better for you. Remember: if you decide to change your pricing tier during the month, you can do so in myQuestrade, and it will take effect the 1st of the following month.
