Costs only 8 basis points. This follows the S&P 500, easy. A good index product at a super-low price.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Down 6%) He's long-term with EM (20 years) and he still likes this space. EM valautions are very low, yet there's strong GDP growth with an emerging middle class. VEE includes nearly 30 countries including China, India, Mexico and Hungary.
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Down 1%) This ETF is based on Nobel Prize winning behavioural scientific research about human overreaction to market moves. BHAV capitalizes on the irrational foibles/mistakes of traders (i.e. an earnings miss that results in a 10% drop).
E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Apr 08/19, Down 1%) An ESG product for MSCI EAFE to get exposure outside North America, so it's very good for diversifying your portfolio. (Overall, he expects markets to be rangebound globally for the rest of 2019.)

How to preserve a non-registered account for retirees yet minimize taxes? First, ttagger your sells and don't trade all/many stocks in a single year. Also, you can sell any capital losses to offset gains. If a stock is up $10K and you don't want to sell it all, then sell half of it to to offset another holding that's a capital loss. But remember, you can't buy back the exact same security you sold within the first 30 days; instead, buy something very similar or keep the cash. Overall, sell your stocks very slowly over many years to minimize taxes.

BUY
It's a good product, because it's conservative. The dividends will mute volatility, and there are covered calls on top of that. At least you make money on writing the call options. This offers a lot lower volatility than others in this space.

When you must wtihdraw from your RRIF, what to do with that money? If you have a spouse, you can make the RRIF withdrawals. Also, you can withdraw now, not at 71 which is the limit to withdraw from a RRIF. Sure, you pay a little more tax sooner, but there's less to sell in the RRIF later. You can withdraw $6,000 and put it into a TFSA and never pay tax on it. A note: in your late-60s/early-70s, you can still travel, but no one travels when they reach 80. So, if you're in your late-60s and healthy, travel now--don't wait!
