XIC-T is not tracking the index, TSX –T or TSX-60. The problem is the system. It does not look at dividends correctly. He finds that it tracks the TSX correctly. The TSX is identical to the XIC-T but tools online do not necessarily track the over all returns accurately.

(A Top Pick May 25/18, Up 6%) A core ETF and still likes it. Fantastic diversification at a low MER. A good way to get into the TSX. He sold his banks, but owns them through this.

It came along after XIU, is cheaper and gives much broader exposure of TSX--large, mid and even small caps. He prefers this to the XIU. Includes TD and Enbridge.

This invests in the broad Canadian index, including the riskier sectors of gold and oil. It's come back nicely after the December sell-off.

XIC-T vs. SPY-N vs. VT-N. After a sharp decline after a rally you are likely to retest lows. The thrust off the bottom was so significant. 10 of the last 12 corrections never went back to retest the lows. Positioning is so defensive that people are not likely to get the retesting of the lows they are waiting for. The commodity complex could see strength. All three should do well.

(A Top Pick Dec 14/17, Down 4%) A good way to play the TSX, but this is down because of bad timing; the TSX was down in 2018.

(A Top Pick March 3/17 - Up 0.03%.) Not very exciting. The markets haven’t been too excited. Not unhappy with it. A way for an individual to have a safe and diversified way to access the market. An easy way to get diversification. He still likes financials particularly the banks.

(A Top Pick June 30/17. Up 8%.) That’s a core holdings in all of his portfolio. It’s a little bit more diversified than the XIU-T. He likes both because they both have a liquid options market. From time to time he will buy a Put or sometime he will sell a Call which is quite rare, so he likes the fact that its liquid. These indexes don’t get away from the typical 65-70% of banks, energy, base metals and gold. He would recommend ZIN-T from BMO because it’s industrials rather than being financials and it’s a good complement to the big ones.

In the past, he’s tended to focus more on the BMO Low Volatility Cdn Eqty (ZLB-T) on the Canadian side, but it lacks exposure to commodities. If you want exposure to the commodity side, this is one way to do it.

There are people concerned about Trump, NAFTA, real estate, etc. and have withdrawn form the market and are sitting on cash. He has come up with suggestions that are relatively safe and represent a broad diversification in relatively safe areas. With this, you are going into a broad market. If the TSX does break out, this stock will match that performance. It gives you good diversification.

XIC-T vs. ZCN-T. He does not know the difference between them. The Canadian market is the least diversified in the world. He does not want to own anything that tracks the TSX unless we are in boom time in the banks or commodities. He does not invest in ETFs.

He likes this because it has options on it, and is a little less heavily weighted towards financials and energy. A very good core ETF to have and hold.
