I live in Canada. I was wondering if the following link is a good option to get started in the world of stocks, funds,etc. I am green, but will go in with a "intelligent" gambler's attitude..looking to tail folks I think can make $, but also learning at the same time..investmnet would be minimal (1000$)

I dont know the rules in Canada, there are a few members who live there and invest, hopefully someone will  chime in.

I would look for the best rates, lowest fees and best access to the markets. 

Down here it is Scottrade for me, also Etrade and Ameritrade are options.

I live in Canada and am a frequent stock trader.  I'm not familiar with Quest Trade.  I've heard of them but don't know anyone who uses them.  They do seem pretty cheap though.  As long as they fill quickly then you should be fine I imagine. 

I use TD Waterhouse.  Trades are $9.95 but you pay a bit more if you don't have a minimum of $50 K in your account.  Great discount broker in all regards. 

Good luck.
