The Alberta election is tomorrow and we have a shortened trading week due to Easter. It looks like the Conservatives will win in Alberta, but Notley did an admirable job running the province. We'll see conservative premieres across Canada lobby Trudeau to build pipelines. He's positive about the Canadian economy, certainly compared to last December. He wasn't surprised by the sharp recovery. Now, it's uncertain: are we in a slow-growth economy or tiptoeing to recession? The answer: nobody knows....JP Morgan is more of a barometer for the US economy than Goldman Sachs...He expects Canadian bank earnings will be good, despite what an American short-seller thinks. The Canadian housing bubble has softened already, especially in Vancouver. Banks and financials are steady and safe. If you can take more risk, buy during market pullbacks.
