Provincial government bonds. Most provinces issue debt from 1 to 30 years. The more liquid ones would be the provinces that are in the most debt such as Ontario, Quebec, BC and Alberta. On a 10 year term you are looking at about anywhere is from 75 to 100 basis points over a government bond give you lower-mid 4% yields. He is currently underway to this sector as he prefers corporate bonds but he does have exposure in the 30-year provincials.

XSB-T (iUnits Short Bond Market) and XBB-T (iUnits Cdn Bond Market) is not a bad way to participate in the bond market. This is a low-risk way of playing but potential returns are going to be low as well. As an active manager he would prefer you to be in a fund or individual bonds.

Gold. All-time high was $1032 set about a year ago and he believes it will break through this. If it does it should continue up to the $1200-$1300.
