What ETF shorts the market? Don't short and avoid leveraged ETFs, but if you have to, then look at HIU-T or HIX-T. When you short, you're fighting the dividend and the natural drift upward of equities. Don't short. Instead, look at the TLT-T (up 63% in 2008) or HTB-T (up 29% in 2008); you get the outsized returns from owning a US-denominated bond and get paid to wait.

(A Top Pick Nov 23/18, Up 3%) Instead of shorting the S&P, buy this (see his earlier comments). You don't receive any interest; it's a total return swap. Wonderful tax exposure. You need this to diversify your portfolio.

He wants the US dollar exposure as he is worried about the risk-off mentality in the market. In 2008, this fund was up 30% -- as bonds went up and the US dollar strengthened. US bonds have a high negative correlation to a declining Canadian market.

(A Top Pick April 25/17. Down 6.76%.) This mirrors a similar US product, which has actually gone up. The difference basically represents the currency. Aug-Sept are the best times for fixed income, and seasonally this makes sense.

Bonds tend to do well in the summer months. The best month for fixed income is from May until the beginning of October. It comes back in the form of capital gains, not interest. Look for a bit of a pullback before you go into this.

Replicates the IEF ETF in the States. Government bonds do well from May to October. This is a good safe place for the summer.
