An ETF where you could look at any individual component, because they are big enough in the US that you are not walking into a landmine. Chart shows a nice break out earlier in the year, which was pretty positive. If you don't own individual names, then this is a good place to be. One of the strongest sectors in both Canada and the US for the next 6 months.

This is chemicals in the US. We are seeing slow growth with a bump up from Trump. It is positive on a fundamental basis, technically it looks good and it is strong from a seasonal point of view.

His Top Picks are not “Buy & Holds”. They are Seasonal Picks so there is an exit strategy. This is one where you get in now but get out at the beginning of January. Peak period of seasonal strength runs from Nov 19 on average, all the way through to the start of January. Average gain over the short period is about 6.3%. Technical charts show this having higher highs and higher lows and trading above significant moving averages, showing positive relative performance. Has persistently bounced off the 20 day level, which would be a great level to get in assuming there is weakness.
