hey guys, I do some contracting work in Canada and I recieved a check in CAD. I need to get it cashed, but my local bank refuses to do it. Do you guys know where I could get this cashed?

Can you give some details as to why your bank will not cash it(usually a bank will cash it but put a hold on it till it clears)? How about opening up a bank account at a larger/international bank?

yeah they are super slow to adjust prices. It pisses me off because data just came out this week for september retail sales in canada. Due to the dollars huge run and the fact that they cant adjust prices quickly it caused a .7% month over month drop in auto sales and 2.2% drop in tech products. As a result overall retail numbers looked bad and my retailer got killed even though it buys inputs in the US and doesnt sell the type of good that people who buy in the USA instead of canada

Why does everyone recommend Vanguard for index funds? Fidelity's expense ratio is 0.10% to Vanguard's 0.19% from what I can tell.

maybe factors other than .09% diff in expence ratio play a role.

also im guessing ratios are diff for different funds, and fidelity is not lower in all comparable funds. IDK though..

ybother,
i went to one of their seminars and was also turned away by the hard-sell. That is also the first thing they're going to try to sell to you; their main product is for options trading from what i've heard and that's couple thousand grands more each year or so.
