A one-ounce gold bar could be yours

Attention Canadian traders!  The current stock broker that I’m using – Questrade – has an interesting promotional offer that you may wish to know about. Apparently if you open and fund a new Questrade account by December 17th you could win a one-ounce gold bar, provided by Kitco, Canada’s premier precious metals supplier. Want more chances to win? Every time you trade gold in your account you get another entry. Pretty cool!

Also, if you move an account with a minimum of $25,000 from another broker, they will pay your transfer-out fees up to $150 and you qualify for yet another entry for the contest.

So basically you have 3 different ways to win the one-ounce gold bar:

  • Open and fund a Questrade standard or registered account by December 17th, 2010.
  • Trade gold in your account by December 17th, 2010.
  • Transfer an account with a minimum of $25,000 from another broker.

Also, I guess it may be helpful to mention that Questrade deals in physical gold – ie REAL gold bullion- NOT certificates or shares. I for one recommend outright ownership of gold bullion as the best method of investing in gold.

Anyways, I wish you all luck in winning that free one ounce gold bar!
