Markets.  Oil prices will be good for consumers as well as business.  He is generally bullish on the US economy.  The basis of his outlook is always pro-US.  You have to look at what is the actual yield.  He looks at short term government bonds, mid-term corporate bonds but nothing long term.  He also looks at a mixed bag of ETFs.  It is a bizarre presidential campaign.  It will cause some uncertainty.  It is hard to imagine a situation where both are detested by their own parties.  All you can do is sit back and wait.  If you see a stock you like and it is down, then buy it.

Options don’t have any intrinsic value, just time value.  Options traders want leverage.  As an option becomes more in the money it becomes more expensive.

Call Option Expiry.  If you let a call get exercised, you have the stock in your hands, so you should sell the option just before expiry.

Exchange Traded Note, vs. An Exchange Traded Fund.  He won’t touch an ETN because it is illiquid.  He is not interested in that market.

Investment for an account with no withdrawals for 10-15 years – ETF recommendation including a drip.  Pretty much all ETF providers will do a drip.  You could buy an S&P 500 ETF.

Moving to US for more Liquidity in Options.  There are a lot of Canadian stocks that are interlisted in the US and Americans tend to pay higher option premiums, so you could consider these.

Covered Call Correct Value when stock is not actively traded.  You can use the Black Scholes model and that gives you the correct price, but it does not say you are going to get it.  It does not tell you what the market maker is going to give you.  That is one reason he deals mostly with the Canadian banks where there is huge volume.

2016-08-04 SPECULATIVE BUY Must be logged in to use chart CJP-T iShares Japan C$ Hedge ETF

It would be his favourite Japan ETF because as it is hedged, but he would not buy Japan right now.  The currency is all over the place.  He is not keen on Japan’s prospects.  He prefers the US.

2016-08-04 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart DOD-N ELEMENTS Dogs of the Dow Linked to the Dow Jones

Dogs of the DOW.  The idea is that you look at the DOW stocks and buy the ones that are not performing.  It is an old concept and he is not thrilled with it.  It does not always work.

2016-08-04 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart GLD-N SPDR Gold ETF

A Gold ETF, but you can’t ever get the actual gold from it (take delivery of bullion).  It is a legitimate concern, but not a realistic one.  He only buys Gold ETFs as a trading vehicle.

2016-08-04 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart HGD-T HBP Global Gold Bear+ E.T.F.

Where you talk about a bear or bull ETF that is levered, they have no future.  You are supposed to trade them on a day to day basis or possible a weekly basis.  They are guaranteed to lose over the long term because of the way the gains are translated over night.  These are a very short term tactic.
