A fairly low fee and gives exposure to the entire Canadian bond market. The “entire” Canadian bond market is probably a bit riskier than what most retail investors want to get out of their fixed income exposure, because of the long maturities that are out there. This has a weighted average duration of about 7 years. He supplements this with some shorter term, corporate credit ETF’s, to bring down the overall risk of the whole portfolio.

Has some warm feelings for this stock. It has been pretty volatile, but still trading within ranges. There is a trend line going up from September, and if it can break out from about this level, there is a pretty big upside for it.

Well liked on the street. He doesn’t know the fundamentals or the reason for the recent drop, but it has come down to some support. Momentum was really, really oversold. There is some support where it is right now. All the indicators are at the bottom. Until this breaks down below $35 he wouldn’t be too worried about it. If it keeps this level, it is probably going to be a good buy.

Thinks this has now formed a bottom. It needs to get above its current area by conviction. You don’t want to see a lower low. Fundamentally, there are few sectors that are in secular bull markets. Healthcare is one of them, biotech comes along for the ride. A good sector to own, but you really have to be careful with your pricing. The swings can be pretty big.

Short by using HBP S&P 500 VIX ST Future Bull+ (HVU-T)? Part of what we have seen in this move has been a bit of a Short squeeze that is going on. The Fed is going to be talking on June 15-16, so there is going to be a bit of a bid until after that. You could start to take some Short positions but he wouldn’t go totally short. There is a bit of overhead resistance. Wait until we get closer to the June meeting.

This measures the daily swings in markets, and the lower it gets the more it coils to where we get an event, and then it shoots up. The Fed doesn’t want a high VIX and they control it. He has no idea on how to make use of this where it is at now.

Chart shows a little bit of base building which is positive, but it has to hurdle over the downtrend line. On a chart like this, it can break down either way. The odds are that it does kind of move up to get up to something a little bit higher. It looks like it wants to migrate up to the $22-$23 level. The technical target, 1st resistance, is around $24.
