COMMENT
The markets liked the trade news today. People are getting used to being off-balance with Trump. He himself holds a basket of 11 diverse (through geography and asset class) funds that he rebalances every 6-18 months. He still holds mutual funds that are ETF-like with low MER and good tax efficiency. He is critical of traditonal, high-cost mutual funds, but he likes mutual funds that charge a low cost and are diversified. Areas he likes for the rest of 2019 are the US and Canada, but not Europe.

How to catch up on unused $51,000 TFSA contribution room? TFSAs are vital for low-income people. Put money in monthly into a basket of ETFs, like $500 ($6,000 yearly). Then you can save up and buy an ETF and diversified portfolio. A regular $500 contribution means you don't miss this money.

You get the large-cap TSX names. It bottomed at Christmas, rose, had a bad May and rising this month. This is a single-take solution for Canadian stocks. A caveat: these are large-caps, not small, but this should do well.

He likes it. Japan hit its all-time highs 30 years ago yet hasn't returned there. They're in no-man's land now. As a result, products like this cover Asia--except Japan. If you like emerging markets, this is a good way to do it.

ZWU or ZWE Both are good defensive strategies. ZWE: He's not that bullish on Europe, but at least you get income from writing the covered calls here. ZWU: Utilities are much less volatile and more stable, yet expose you to Europe. If you belive in Europe and playing defence, then both ETFs are fine. These two ETFs are highly correlated, rising and falling together. Note that utilities are risk-off, not for you if you have long-term bullish.
