Re: Norbert's gambit

FYI: My only experience with large FX was a few years ago; I actually phoned up TD and they quoted me a rate which was much better than the posted rate. I am a long term customer with TD but I suspect that for amounts > $50K you can get a much [more]

Re: Bad News for ...

What you should do is setup a spousal RRSP; fund it as much as you can (even consider taking a loan) and then have her withdraw the money once she leaves her job. There are some rules along the timing of this approach but it should allow you to push [more]

Re: Control Panel: Busy central banks

How long can China hold its USD Peg? To me this is probably one of the biggest questions facing the world economy.

What is the impact of they break their currency peg?

Re: Bad News for ...

Ah but the devil is in the details.

First; I agree that anyone not in the highest tax bracket should not even think about RRSPs; and those that have a government pension should probably avoid them as well. That probably eliminates 50% of the [more]

BCE @ $60.00

Another strong quarter for BCE and the stock is trading to its 52W high now (actually this is an all time post-Nortel high). A nice 5.2% increase in the dividend is a bonus.

Re: Macro Outlook

Our banks have become transaction machines and not real "banks" anymore (at least when it comes to mortgages). They are just middle men who package up loans and then sell them to the government and then pocket a decent profit. Good for [more]

2. The BoC will be under a lot of pressure to raise short term rates to defend the dollar

I didn't see that coming (the drop in short term interest rates).

Re: Macro Outlook

Some additional thoughts.

1. There is a strong chance that long term Bond Yields in Canada stay low. We will be facing very low inflation (core inflation anyway) and Canada is not a default risk. (the 10Y in Denmark is 0.50% for example). [more]
