In my estimation, what we’ve seen in the markets recently is a healthy selloff in a broader bull phase that will eventually stabilize. Much of the market’s actions have been driven by one of the strongest bull quarters (quarters that haven’t immediately followed a low from a major selloff) in this now 10-year long recovery from 2008-09 market crash. The motivation was really driven by many who may have wished to take profit or became skittish at the prospects of what the new earnings season may uncover. There are five key reasons I feel the selling will abate and that a floor will be set, at least for the short-term – until next earnings season in the first quarter of 2019.

When analyzing the Canadian investment space, it is crucial to ask what are fund managers doing with the $1.85 trillion allocated to mutual funds, ETFs and other investment vehicles. Investment funds are often packaged and sold to investors on some criteria, such as targeting U.S. large caps, emerging markets, or specific sectors. But before a Canadian investment manager can invest millions in exchanges around the world, a simple exchange rate transaction must occur as a prerequisite to participate in global capital markets. By analyzing the deployable cash in investment funds, we can assess the street’s market sentiment and get a fix on the liquidity of investment funds on a cash and cash-equivalents basis.

Q – I’m in my mid-50s and interested in selling some of my RRSP mutual funds. I’ve had them for at least 10 years. So, I think I have had them long enough to not get charged a penalty fee for selling them within a couple of years. Do they get taxed the same rate as if I had capital gains from selling stocks in a company? I also have a TFSA question: If I put $5,000 in my TFSA and buy stock that doubles in price to $10,000 and then take out the $10,000 from the TFSA, can I put $10,000 back in without a penalty? Even though the original contribution was $5,000? – Randy W.

* Market week: Stocks slip on growth concerns.
* CI launches advisor-sold Alternative funds.
* Horizons debuts “Industry 4.0” ETF.

* Market week: Stocks slip on growth concerns. The major stock indices slipped on the week against a background of growing concern over a global economic slowdown, especially in China, as the price of crude oil slid into bear market territory (down 20% from its recent peak). The U.S. Federal Reserve Board held its trend-setting federal funds rate unchanged on Thursday, at between 2% and 2.25%, with a hike still widely expected next month. The S&P 500 Composite Index lost 1.0% on the week, led by heavy selling in General Electric Co. following disappointing quarterly earnings results. The Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 1.6% on the week. And Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index edged back 0.5%.

It can be tempting to try to beat the market. Some skilled investors, who can dedicate the time and effort and keep costs low, have had some success. But for most, it’s a difficult task.
