    You're right. You've changed my mind.

    I you're looking for Canadian income and have a very low risk tolerance, why not buy CDP. It's ETF's of preferred shares from Canadian companies. It qualifies for the enhanced dividend credit too.

    I agree as well. Go with Vanguard, and start with their Total Stock Market Index. VTI for their ETF's, not sure what the code is for their mutual fund, look it up on www.vanguard.com

    Vanguard is the cheapest out there. Don't get suckered into paying higher fees for some "star" fund manager.

    Vanguard is great as a brokerage as well, over a certain amount (500k?) in their funds (not brokerage money, just their funds) and you can trade for $2. also, admiral shares gives you a discount on the actively managed funds and index funds but each at different amounts (50k and 10k iirc).

    I just got an e-mail that there's a coast-to-coast route open with superchargers. Looks to be a bunch more by year-end.

    I have an ominous feeling that the recent run-up is only temporary..

    Anyone into forex and see consistent and worthwhile returns? I was reading about it and from my understanding, it's risky, can be rewarding, and takes time to master... I would just like to confirm it's merits with some real people with a decent account (non-demo!) before I go further.
