With Global Trading from TD Waterhouse,
the World is Your Trading Floor

Introducing Canada's first major bank-backed online global trading service

TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage has introduced Global Trading, the first platform of its kind in Canada. Global Trading provides direct online access to exchanges in 10 countries, allowing investors real-time access to leading European and Asian Pacific markets.

“This powerful new platform will provide Canadians with the speed and control they need to continue to diversify their investments and maximize their returns in today’s global markets,” says John See, President, TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage. “Through our Global Trading platform, Canadian investors are now able to act on these investment opportunities online.”

With Global Trading, investors can:

  • Access 10 Global Markets: Investors can trade on the London, Sydney, Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Milan, Amsterdam, Singapore and Madrid exchanges.
  • Trade in the currency of their choice: Investors can settle trades in seven currencies: the British Pound, Euro, Australian Dollar, Singapore Dollar, Hong Kong Dollar, US Dollar and Canadian Dollar.

“North American exchanges represent only 35% of the global capital markets. Limiting your portfolio to U.S. and Canadian listed investments could mean missing out on a world of opportunities,” says Patricia Lovett-Reid, SVP, TD Waterhouse. “Through one trading platform, you can now build a truly diversified portfolio of blue chip North American companies, dividend yielding European equities as well as shares in faster growing Asian markets."

In addition, investors can also:

  • Pay a flat fee for most global trades: Most trades in international markets can be placed for a low flat rate.
  • Access international research: To make informed investment decisions, investors will have access to investment data including company research, international research, real-time market data and charting capabilities from markets around the world.
  • Receive live support, 24/7: TD Waterhouse Global Trading Specialists will answer questions from investors and assist with trades in English, French, Cantonese or Mandarin, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Access Global Trading through WebBroker: To access Global Trading, investors require a personal, single or joint TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage cash or margin account, with WebBroker access.
