I'd like to (finally) open a TFSA, with the option of buying stocks and/or ETFs in it. I'm trying to compare the different brokerages' fees but I'm not sure I'm comparing the right things. Seems like I want to know about:
- annual fees
- withdrawal fees
But I'm also curious if there's big differences in the bid/ask spreads... is that even a consideration?
I have other accounts at TD/TDW, so even though I won't have enough in my accounts to qualify for reduced trading commissions now, I hope to someday.
If anyone knows of a recent and accurate comparison on the 'net, I'd appreciate the link.
