Where do we go from here?

Icon Written by Dan Schwartz on April 19, 2012 – 6:00 am

The TSX Composite is looking like a bit of a dog.  The S&P 500 is looking a bit like a star. Is this what QE does when Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve print money? Is the weakness and lack of conviction of the ineffectual Harper Conservative government in Canada the primary driver behind the [...]

The Santa Clause Rally Has Come Once Again – But Not For Gold

Icon Written by Dan Schwartz on December 29, 2011 – 6:00 am

We have grown accustomed to seeing gold prices rocket ever higher all year long, but as we near the end of 2011, something has changed.  Gold may not be the wondrous ever increasing in value commodity that everyone has come to love.  Now that even farmer Joe and his dog fluffy own gold, it’s probably [...]

As you are listening to the “past year in review” shows ?  No doubt as they are very hard to avoid and this is not to say that there is anything wrong with them as there are many important things that happened in 2011 that have become out of mind. Rather than focus strictly on [...]
