RBC Direct Investing today announced that real-time streaming quotes on Canadian and U.S. stocks and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are being provided to all clients at no charge, effective immediately.
“We’ve moved clients even closer to the trading floor, all from the convenience of their online account,” says John Bai, President & CEO, RBC Direct Investing. “We’ve also kept it simple. Our real-time quotes are automatically integrated into the service we provide for all our clients. There are no minimum balance or trading activity requirements and there are no exchange agreements to sign.”
With real-time streaming quotes, investors receive automatic access to bid/ask quotes and see the current price before they buy or sell. Investors can watch the markets ’tick by tick’ to spot opportunities, without hitting the refresh button.
“Adding real-time streaming provides all clients with a powerful tool for making investment decisions,” notes Bai. “In addition, we offer research and commentary from trusted sources, complementing our dynamic trading dashboard and industry-recognized planning and tracking resources. We’re ensuring today’s self-directed investors have everything they want, right at their fingertips.”
This year marks RBC Direct Investing’s 30th anniversary as an online brokerage for self-directed investors who want to be in control of their investment decisions and have low-cost access to the markets.
