Wealthsimple Trade currently supports the following assets, as long as they meet our eligibility criteria (see below):
- Stocks (only common shares)
- Select cryptocurrencies using Wealthsimple Crypto
A stock or ETF must meet our eligibility criteria to become available on Wealthsimple Trade.
When you search for an asset that is unavailable to trade, you'll see a brief message explaining why. Some of the reasons are as follows –
The security type is not supported
Only stocks and ETFs are supported on Wealthsimple Trade. Wealthsimple Trade does not support any other assets, including:
- Mutual Funds
- Preferred Shares
- Securities that trade Over-the-counter (OTC)
- Forwards & Futures
- Rights and Warrants
- Investment Savings Accounts & Money Markets
- Stocks & ETFs that trade on non-North American exchanges
This security isn’t listed on a supported exchange
Wealthsimple Trade currently supports stocks and ETFs trading on the following exchanges:
- Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX)
- TSX Venture Exchange (TSXV)
- New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
- Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE)
- BATS Exchange – limited securities available
If the security you're looking for is listed on another exchange or is traded over-the-counter (OTC) you will not be able to purchase it on the Trade platform. If the security is listed on both a US exchange and a Canadian exchange, we will only support the security listed on the Canadian exchange.
This security may not meet our settlement or average daily trading volume requirements
We only allow securities to be traded that settle with the Canadian Depository for Securities (CDS). We also impose minimum price and volume constraints for stocks traded on the platform.
The security is delisted, suspended, or halted
In most cases, orders can’t be submitted for securities that are delisted or suspended. Orders can be submitted for securities that are halted, however, they will not fill until trading resumes.
Note: If you own a stock or ETF within your Trade account that is no longer supported, you’ll still be able to sell it as long as the stock has not been delisted and is still being traded. However, you will not be able to purchase additional shares.
