Not sure what you are getting at. The RBC offering appears to be accessed only within their secure website, although that does not make a lot of sense. Will have to wait for the activation code to see what this is all about.
In response to your request, we are pleased to invite you to join the exclusive group of pioneer members who are participating in the Beta release of the RBC Direct Investing Community.
Joining the Community is easy. Once you are signed into the RBC Direct Investing online investing site:
o Click on the Community tab
o Click on I have an invite code
o Enter ****** into the Invite Code field
o Follow the steps to complete your registration and begin connecting with other investors.
By joining now, you will not need to complete the registration process again when the Beta period has ended.
Please note that certain information such as your enrolled portfolio holdings will not be visible in the Community until you have been registered in the Community for at least one full business day. Also, your returns, risk adjusted return and standard deviation will be calculated after the relevant goals have been enrolled for at least two consecutive business days.
We thank you for choosing to join. We look forward to receiving your feedback through the Forum section to help us improve the Community experience during the Beta period.

GICs are purchased for same-day settlement. Investors who sell stocks or bonds with "T+3" settlement should generally wait until the funds are in their account before purchasing GICs.
