Staying on top of your portfolio’s performance has never been easier.

Plus there’s enhanced charting, mutual fund alerts and end of day alerts. In addition to tracking stocks, and mutual funds, you can now even track cash and other investments so you know your true net worth. Look for enhanced asset allocation features including by sector, geographic and asset class.

FX FLAT TRADES (Washing Rates)
Pay less for US trades. Now when you execute a US$ buy/sell transaction in your registered account (RSP, RIF, LIF etc), and execute another US$ buy/sell transaction that same day, we’ll apply the same foreign exchange rate to both transactions - providing you call us before executing the subsequent US$ transaction.
And soon you’ll even be able to deposit US$ into your account, hold it in cash, and use it to buy US stocks!

Improved Security
If you haven’t downloaded our free LocalSSL Secure™ security software, do it now. It’s free. Takes only a few seconds to install. And helps protect against keyloggers and phishing scams. Plus having LocalSSL installed, and complying with other basic safety guidelines, makes you eligible for 100% coverage under our new Access Security Guarantee. Also, for additional peace of mind, we’ve added a new feature that tells you when your account was last logged in to.
