(A Top Pick April 14/15. Down 2.35%.) Most markets peak on May 5, but the TSE Composite actually peaks on May 29. If you have invested in this, now would be a good time to consider making your move into more conservative investments, preferably cash, bonds, short-term notes, etc.

TSX 60 finally broke through a 7 year high, which is technically very, very good. This is in an upward trend, above its 20 day moving average and is outperforming the S&P 500. The problem is, once you get into May to October, volatility increases virtually every year, so you want to protect yourself by owning this until May and then look for some technical signals to take some profits.

The best time to own Canadian stocks relative to US stocks is right around the middle of December through until the middle of March each year. This year in particular looks interesting, because we have seen the TSE Composite slightly outperform the S&P during the last couple of weeks. Of greater importance is the earnings reports coming out during the 4th quarter, where results from the major US companies are not going to be that great.

You can buy either this or the iShares S&P/TSX 60 Index Fund (XIU-T). The TSX has been outperforming S&P 500 for the past couple of months. This is a broad market play and may outperform the US in the 1st half of 2013.

S&P/TSX 60 Index ETF. This one looks great. Just had a breakout of a gorgeous reverse head and shoulders pattern early this week. Tactic for a reverse head and shoulders is from the bottom of the pattern to the trend line and then the same amount up from the neck line. The target here would be around $11.80, hopefully by May.

S&P/TSX 60 Index ETF compared to S&P/TSX 60 ETF (XIU-T)? Because it is a swap and a total return ETF, you are not going to be getting the distributions but you could possibly get a better return. Good product.
