How does MogoTrade make money?
We don’t charge commission fees, FX fees, monthly account fees, or subscription fees. So how do we make money?
Our primary revenue source is interest on cash deposits, i.e. if you have $1k in stocks and have a $100 cash balance, we earn a small rate of interest on this cash balance, as do most other brokers. That interest revenue is also how we fund tree planting initiatives and keeping this community thriving. Help support MogoTrade by referring like-minded investors to join our community!
How do I fund my MogoTrade account and will the funds be available instantly?
There are two main ways to fund your MogoTrade account. The quickest way is to fund your account with up to $3,000 instantly using Interac E-Transfer Request. The other option available is to use Bill Payment through your bank and fund up to $100,000 (subject to your bank’s limits). Not all banks support this for MogoTrade, but the big ones and a few others do. Bill Payment deposits are normally credited to your account within 2 to 4 business days not including weekends and holidays.
