Has anyone created a Margin Trading account with TD?

So since my TFSA and RRSP are maxed out, I decided to open a taxable brokerage account (AKA Non-Registered account).
I got the confirmation last Friday that the account was open, and realized it may take 2 business days for the account to appear on Easyweb.
Yesterday I logged into TD on their phone App and saw that my margin account was open. But, I'm not able to transfer money to the account, and when I log onto the website on a computer, the account is not appearing.
Anyone know what's going on? I figure if it's still not appearing tomorrow I'll give them a call, but wanted to see what you guys think in the meantime.

TFSA Trading Account or Margin Trading Account? (Canada)

Hello weedstocks, I'm new here and would like to pick your brain on this.

I have about $10K that I could put on TFSA Trading account or Margin Trading Account. The perks with TFSA, basically profit that I make during trading won't get taxed but no margin loan. Margin Trading Account lets me borrow money 80-100% from my own investment for a low interest rate (2-2.2%). Potentially doubling my capital but Gov will take a cut of the profit (50% ish). What would you do? 50:50 or get rid of one of them completely?

Whats the math regarding where the cutoff is for where its beneficial to do one method vs other.
is the profit sharing for ALL stocks or just the borrowed money?
TFSA have 0 taxes at all on ANY and everything?

Am I understanding this right?
Margin: For Example: I buy 10k of stocks, then I can borrow 10k more and then when i sell (lets say 10k+10k=20k originally but now its up 50% to 30k) so am i paying the profit on the 2nd 10k, or the total 30k or the difference between 30k-10k?

TFSA: Stock bought at 10k, jumps to 15k. I sell and then, a) pull money out, b) leave money in account and buy more stocks. what happens in each scenario?

Shouldn't we have a sticky post about the risks of margin trading (account liquidations)?

I mean a sticky megathread that includes the links to all the horror stories. Like the guy who lost 130 BTC (my God, 130 BTC!) because of a SINGLE bad trade.
I think having it as a sticky would serve as a daily reminder to all traders who ever contemplate of doing high risk trades just to recoup their losses or during highly volatile times. I know that every time I am contemplating of making something stupid I remind myself of a guy who got liquidated for $150,000.

TFSA Trading Account or Margin Trading Account?

Hello PFC, I'm new here and would like to pick your brain on this. My risk tolerance is pretty high (willing to keep money in a down market sit for 7-10 years). I have about $20K that I could put on TFSA Trading account or Margin Trading Account. The perks with TFSA, basically profit that I make during trading won't get taxed but no margin loan. Margin Trading Account lets me borrow money 80-100% from my own investment for a low interest rate (2-2.2%). Potentially doubling my capital but Gov will take a cut of the profit (25% ish). What would you do? 50:50 or get rid of one of them completely?

How Robinhood App Crashed on the best day in Wall Street history

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9kSNzXWku4
The app suffered a systemwide, all-day outage. The company claimed it was due to an "unprecedented load" on the infrastructure due to volatile market conditions. But then it happened and again. The app crashed three times in one week. A week, mind you, that had multiple days with significant trading.
Users took to social media to blast the company. A Twitter account called "Robinhood Class Action" had more than 7000 followers in just days. Some even took legal action against Robinhood, which is ironic. You know, the hero being sued? Anyways.
But let's not forget about the fine print. Robinhood's customer agreement states that it will not be responsible for "temporary interruptions in service due to maintenance, Website or App changes, or failures" beyond its control.
Always, always read the fine print.
But this wasn't even close to the worst thing the company faced in this 2020. In June of this year, Alexander Kearns committed suicide after his Robinhood margin trading account displayed a negative $730 000 balance.

[in TD's WebBroker US TSFA] sell a stock and the profit exceeds CAD TFSA limit?

This hasn't happened yet but I thought I'd ask incase it ever does:
If I sell a stock in my US TSFA account, and the profit exceeds my CAD TFSA withdraw limit by like 10-15k (cus I'd like to transfer all the profit to my CAD TSFA and then to my chequing), what's the best course of action to take if I want to give as much of the profit as possible in a CHEQUE to help pay for parents mortgage? I know I'd pay bigger tax charges if trying to withdraw beyond the TSFA limit.
The only trading accounts I have open right now are US and CAD TSFA with TD WebBroker. It's a registered account. Should I open a margin trading account, an RRSP, or something else to help with this? The $ would need to be used soon after making the profit.
Thank you

Investing $1000-$16000 As Dual Citizen

Good afternoon!
I am a 22 year old looking to invest a small portion of my funds. I want to invest in either Apple or Tesla, I plan on buying 3 Apple stocks or 1 Tesla stock. I am not planning on selling it any time soon, but just holding onto the stock. I have already opened an account with QuesTrade and have been told they do not have any quarterly fees for those under 25, or with over $1000 of value in their accounts. So I am in the clear as if right now for another 3 years.
I am a US citizen & am just finding out that I was supposed to be filing US taxes to the IRS every year. But from what I’ve read that is only for those who have made more than $10,000 USD (~$13,000 CAD) in a year, which considering I’ve been a student up until now, I never have.
So my questions are, is it worth buying 1 or 3 stocks in a single company to hold onto for 10+ years (and likely adding onto them as I progress in my career). And when opening an account with QuesTrade, I understand as an American citizen I should not open a TFSA to invest in or else I will have to pay fees & file a 3502-A when filing tax returns. So I should open a margin trading account correct? Anyways any help or direction would be appreciated, I know it is not a lot to work with but I just want to dip a toe & hold onto a stock for the long term. Is this a bad idea all in all? I already have a HISA w/ Tangerine & when my promotion of 2.8% for my HISA expires I will be moving to EQBank for their HISA (though I will be looking for the highest possible % before making this transition!).
Thanks in advance for the replies & help :)

[FT] Rise in margin lending stokes fears of China bubble

Rise in margin lending stokes fears of China bubble

Sharp rally in stock market draws comparisons with 2015 downfall
Thomas Hale in Hong Kong and Wang Xueqiao in Shanghai
Margin loans to buy equities in China have risen to their highest level in five years, prompting fears that speculation on rising prices could lead to a rerun of a notorious stock market bubble that burst in 2015.
Total margin finance in China reached Rmb1.27tn ($184bn) on Tuesday after more than a week of consecutive daily increases, according to Wind, a data service. Separate figures show investors rushing to open new accounts that give them access to loans from brokers.
The CSI 300 index, a gauge of the country’s biggest stocks listed in Shanghai and Shenzhen, leapt almost 6 per cent on Monday and continued to climb on the following days, after state media extolled the benefits of a “healthy” bull market at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has hit economic activity.
But the rally has drawn comparisons with the events of 2015, when state media urged individual investors to pile in to stocks as the economic backdrop weakened. Sustained in part by a crescendo of margin lending, prices doubled over the course of a year before losing more than 40 per cent of their value in a matter of months.
“I think people are getting greedy, because liquidity is abundant and there is policy support from the top,” said Hao Hong, head of research and chief strategist at Bocom International. “You can sense the speculative atmosphere.”

Trading on margin can be risky, because if the value of collateral falls the borrower may have to deposit more cash or securities. Pledged assets can also be sold without a customer’s consent, perhaps at fire-sale prices.
Margin lending is still well below the peak it reached in 2015, when it rose above Rmb2.2tn in June after doubling from its levels in February, according to Wind. But analysts say the momentum resembles the early stages of the previous boom.
On Monday turnover in “A shares”, which trade on the two main exchanges, was Rmb1.57tn, according to Morgan Stanley. That marked the highest level since the 2015 correction, indicating “high participation from not only institutional but also retail investors”, the bank’s analysts said.
Mr Hong estimates that so far this month about 12 per cent of daily trading volumes are being completed through access to margin finance, compared with 8 per cent in late June. That kind of proportion “tends to raise eyebrows”, he said.
Data from the China Securities Finance Corporation, a state-owned company which provides the country’s brokers with funding, showed that over 85,000 new margin trading accounts were opened in June — more than a one-third increase on the average over the previous year.
One user on Weibo, a popular social media site, noted that securities companies “that had not been in contact in a long time” were again advertising services offering margin trading.
Late on Wednesday, China’s securities regulator published a list of 258 platforms that it said were illegally offering margin finance. Under Chinese law, only approved brokers can provide securities financing.
Support for the capital markets has come alongside measures from China’s central bank to reduce the cost of credit as the economy grapples with the consequences of the pandemic.
“The government has been gradually loosening its monetary policy, so some of this loosening will find its way into the stock market,” said Nicholas Yeo, head of China equities at Aberdeen Standard Investments in Hong Kong.
Despite apparent cheerleading for the market across state media outlets, some suggest the government, wary of the events of 2015, will exercise caution when it comes to allowing investors to bet with borrowed money.
Ken Cheung, chief Asian foreign exchange strategist at Mizuho, expects leverage will remain the main driver of the market in the “medium term”, but expects the government to keep it at a “more controllable rate”. He noted that state media “refrained from adding fuel to the fire” after Monday’s rapid move upwards.
Morgan Stanley analysts say that margin finance appears moderate for now, equivalent to about 4 per cent of the total capitalisation of the stock market, compared to about 10 per cent at the peak in 2015. New investor registrations, meanwhile, despite rising sharply month-on-month, are a long way from the 700,000 of December 2014.
That could indicate that the rally has further to run. Michael Every, global strategist at Rabobank, says China’s market is just one example of a wider trend, also present in the US, where governments seek to boost sentiment while their economies are under heavy pressure.
“If you have a strategy of just pumping up asset prices, it’s going to end in tears,” he said. “We would all sleep much better if this was all fundamentals-driven, everywhere.”

Inverse Grayscale Trust Funds

Grayscale has a number of crypto trust funds that are available on traditional markets through brokers such as Questrade. This opens up some options for those interested in holding a position on these trusts in a typical margin trading account.
However, some accounts such as the registered TFSA in Canada do not allow short positions. I am interested if anyone is aware of an inverse fund for any of the Grayscale crypto trust funds?

Thoughts on my plan to evolve my investment portfolio?

Hi everyone,
I currently have a maxed out TFSA (Sitting around $78k right now), and an RRSP with $15,000 in it. My TFSA will be fully invested in 80% XAW and 20% XIC by the end of this year once the remaining cash is DCA into those ETF's. Currently 70% cash due to some poor portfolio management when I cashed out a couple months before the crash, and didn't reinvest heavier on the dip.
I'm planning to keep the $15k RRSP liquid, as I would like to buy a home within the next 3 years, and will use the Home Buyers Plan. I will continue to add $5k per year to the RRSP for the next 3 years. I don't feel investing the money would be prudent in these circumstances, especially if I plan to use it for my first home purchase within 3 years.
Now I'm in the process of opening a Non-Registered account, specifically, a margin trading account with TD. I will be putting $20k in here, with the following plan:
Thoughts on all this?

Cash/Margin Account vs. RRSP Trading

Hi - I don't want to use my TFSA to make day/swing trading income due to risks/CRA. But is it better to trade inside my RRSP or Cash account? RRSP - my gains will be taxed like income come RRIF which I don't think is fair- CRA should only tax contributions but that's life...I can make $200-$3000 every week in capital gains. Thanks

IB margin account for trading + buy and hold portfolio?

Hi there, I need some advice. I have an Interactive Brokers margin account which I use for some trading, do you think its a good idea to also use this account for buy and hold longterm portfolio? This way keep all my positions on the same platform. Or is it better to hold the long term portfolio on a separate cash account?
Thanks for the advice!

Why does Robinhood warn me about day trading when my account is not a margin account?

Title says all. Not even enrolled in Gold. IIRC pattern day trader regulation only applies to margin account.
Edit: Not that I'm trying to earn money day trading. I'm just worried if RH will lock my account if I make a mistake.
