    The fact that Google finance stopped working made me sad( I used it for many years and I thought that it is very popular, so the fact that they stopped working surprised me a lot. So I had to search for an alternative as fast as it was possible. Because trading is my main job. And I can not lose time. By the way, I wasn’t always successful in trading and many years I was working on a different job and trading was a kind of hobby for me. And I was trading in zero. But once I found stock advisor I started investing more clever and earned good money. Recommend it to all of you, who is a trader too.

    I personally use questrade and they have Canadian and US stocks that can be bought/sold. I heard that TD direct investing and wealthsimple offer something similar.

    I'm not sure how Google finance enters the picture Two hours ago, I used Google finance to update my portfolio of us and Canadian stocks.

    As far as brokerages go, they all have us accounts. If you don't mind being taken advantage of with unfair exchange rates, you can hold us stock in a Canadian account without even having an American account.

    If you get a us account, consider using norberts Gambit to exchange currency.
