The Ebola outbreak and the repeated screw-ups that the US is making on this front together with the ever worsening situation in the Middle East will have a negative effect on stock markets around the world.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Time to ramp up QE again. No interest rate increase is coming and I would bet that negative rates are upon us within 5 years. No demand for credit and wages are stuck in a rut for a large majority of the population. 


Canadian bonds are really low. $80 oil is the benchmark for profit in most of Canada's oil sector. It wont help manufacturing either since if the globe slips into recession there will be nobody buying our crap. Ontario may pick up a bit from cheaper oil and a crappy dollar but no boom is to be had. Old dirty mfg is dying or dead. Watch our employment numbers slide if low oil continues. Just my take on it.


HFT, Algorithmic trading and Front Running do wonders for the home traders confidence. I love watching the VIX on days like today.

Cheaper gas, not cheap. Our dollar is sliding along with oil so the decline in oil/pump prices is not as sharp in Canada as it is in the States. RBOB is in USD.
