Markets.  Fed’s talk on interest rates does not cause him to do anything.  He was looking at Europe until two weeks ago.  He has been buying VGK for some time and is comfortable, but on other ETFs he is holding back until we see what happens with Russia.  Because VGK is Europe and 18 different Fed chairmen you can’t coordinate things that well.  You are buying good global brands.  He is glum on Canada.  It is spring, but the dollar is tumbling.  He does not see that halting any time soon.  Has been buying XSP for years because of hedging, but last year switched to unhedged.

Dividends for companies in an ETF are normally paid out.  ETFs pay distributions of various kinds, but issue statements later than the companies whose dividends they pay out.

5 or 6 months horizon, he would just do money market as opposed to laddered bonds.  Prefers XSB-T to bonds directly.

Money Market Funds.  Prefers over bank paper.  Not a lot to differentiate them from each other.  More liquid than a GIC.

How to play Mexico.  Civil unrest related to drug trade is there, but he thinks there is nothing wrong with buying it.

2014-03-20 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart FIE-T iShares Cdn Financial Monthly Income ETF

Similar to XIE.  Prefers ZEB.  Some of the returns have had some issues regarding return of capital rather than return ON capital.  Good if you are a smaller investor.  Just be aware of the costs.  .9 expense ratio.  Thinks .6 on a dividend play is too high.

Likes it.  If you follow technical analysis, seasonal and fundamental, then this is a good one.  It is a basket of ETFs.

2014-03-20 BUY Must be logged in to use chart HEE-T Horizons Enhanced Income Energy ETF

Not sure how safe the dividends are.  They have inexpensive ETFs based on swaps.  He is not concerned that it is derivative-based.  It is currency hedged.

Covered call strategy.  Capital distribution could be larger than dividend.  Diversified and covered call so he likes that kind of fund.

He has never invested in Russia.  This one includes companies outside of MSCI.  The question is the liquidity of these ETFs but this one would be the best choice. He would not buy Russia.  Oil and gas is 39%, then there is nickel and materials.

2014-03-20 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart TD-T Toronto Dominion

Puts one month at a time.  Naked put (undercovered put) writing is okay if you have cash behind it.  Likes a covered call in terms of return.  He would be concerned if the put got exercised.
