Direct access and Questrade IQ

Control, speed, and cost. These are the three factors that make direct access important to you.

Control

The ability to see market opportunity in real-time and act on it immediately means you have a better chance of getting the buy/sell price you've targeted.

Cost

Direct access reduces slippage between the estimated cost of a transaction and its actual cost. Direct access is the most transparent method of accessing the markets.

Speed

In fast-moving markets, order execution speed can be the difference between a gain or a loss, between taking advantage of an opportunity and missing it entirely.

Remember: account access, trade executions, and system response may be adversely affected by market conditions, quote delays, system performance, and other factors. Stock liquidity and order condition will also affect the speed of your trade execution.
