This AI ETF functions well in the hard sciences – like the oil sands – where AI can assist in efficiencies. The challenge will be behavioural – a black box system investment – which will be difficult to stick with during periods of high volatility. A good compliment to a global equity portfolio.

This will be tied to the energy commodity market, which is in the steepest price decline ever, he thinks. He would be careful as he does not know if we are at the lows for oil prices. The trend is too well defined to the downside right now. He would be careful trying to pick the bottom.

Are the bonds of investment grade? This is a short-term corporate bond fund with some potential exposure to corporate credit duress. There is also interest rate exposure. If you need this to be rock solid, you might want to move to a government bond yield instead.

Everyone loves the extra income from the covered calls. Remember that it will face all the market downside and cuts off the top on rallies. Be aware of a steep decline in the market as it will not participate as the market recovers, due to all the calls it has written on the way down. You end up giving away your winners and holding your losers.

This is 80/20 stocks to bonds. We have to remember that stock volatility in stocks is much greater than bonds. If the stock market falls the ETF will follow the market very closely -- .96 correlation or higher – he feels. For a long term investment this may be fine. He would wait.
