    Hey there, I’m a new subscriber here in Canada.
    Would I still be able to set up an account with Schwab or Ameritrade here or do I need to find something here?
    thanks,
    Harry

    Welcome!

    You’d need to set that up through Ameritrade.com or Schwab.com

    Also, you can call them at their 800 numbers on their sites.

    Hey Harry,
    I’m also a Canadian subscriber. I’m using Questrade.ca, I believe the cheapest Canadian broker is International Brokers (IB).

    Hey Sean, As a Canadian Invester, and 5-6 year subscriber. I’ve always tried to keep half my cash in Canadian funds.
    Would you recommend having this or should I have all USD.

    My thought was if the Canadian/USD dollar swings big one way or the other, I could change my funds to that currency.
