Each year the Globe and Mail does a survey of Canadian on-line brokers, just Google "Online Broker Rankings Globe and Mail" to find it (I'm not yet allowed to post URLs).

What Canadians pay in commissions and the tools (or lack thereof) they get in return is most often criminal.

In order for a broker to legally operate in Canada and take on Canadian clients they have to register with each and every Canadian province's securities commission.

Fortunately, Interactive Brokers does have a Canadian division and is licensed to operate in every province, unfortunately if a Canadian wants a registered RSP or TFSA account they are mostly stuck with the expensive "big bank" types (with one or two exceptions). IB does offer IRAs but not to Canadians.

I find for a fully taxable income account IB suits my needs very well and appreciate they don't resort to tricks like messing with the forex spreads, etc.

You might try asking Mirus Futures, one of their FCM's is now RJO.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

As far as I know, if the same entity is registered as an FCM in Canada and the US, the US division is not allowed to receive any Canadian customers. That was the law a while back, but I doubt that has changed.
In recent years it has become harder for Canadians to open accounts in the US as more FCMs are opening divisions in Canada. Different provinces in Canada have different rules as their own securities commissions dictate.

We receive Canadians but not from all provinces. ( in interested, PM me)

Canadians

I'm with AMP Clearing. Apparently the legal issue with them was "recruiting". I had to sign a statement saying I contacted them to open an account. Having said that it may just cover the company and not me as far as my government is concerned.

Try Vision Financial or AGN Futures

I'm in Manitoba , and have an account with AGN Futures who clear through Vision Financial .. Not sure they take BC clients though .. I also have an account with Infinity Futures , but again not sure which provinces they can accept new clients from ..

There are not too many clearing firms who take BC clients. I know for sure Ironbeam who is one of our clearing firms DO take BC clients. Vision takes many Canadian provinces but their are a few provinces they can not take and Dorman seems ok with Ontario. Please keep in mind each clearing firm is different with the provinces they can accept in Canada. Because each province have different rules for their own securities commissions it has become a lot harder for Canadian residents to find a clearing firm who can house their account.

PM with any questions about Cannon Trading (800) 454-9572 (310) 859-9572. Trading commodity futures, forex and options involves substantial risk of loss. The recommendations contained in this post are of opinion only and do not guarantee any profits. These are risky markets and only risk capital should be used.

Dorman services Ont only, so I had to set up a LLC in NV to make it work.
I moved to Vision Financial and no problems at all up to this point in time.
