Checked out Qtrade website and saw the posted promo.

Question 1: Who/what is QTrade? Are they safe?
Question2: Why did QTrade felt the need to bump up the cash reward from the initial $2,000 to $5,000?
Safe enough I guess. Banks and credit unions love signing up the naive. Keep in mind you take all the risk. It's not their money and they make good coin managing your portfolio. If your bank is involved they also get a piece of the pie. I was with these guys for 2 or 3 years. All I made was bank interest. Live and learn.
