Hold a bit in ZCH.TO (chinese etf). Thinking of nuking it first thing in the morning.

What do you guys think?

Same here, but indexing does the trick for me. Wasn’t sure how dividend stocks will behave in rising rates environment, so only kept a few - individual stocks I mean, obviously they’re still part of the indexes.. :)
Yes, and I index too. Just not in the non-registered account.

I've been investing in index funds on a regular basis and will continue to do so.

I assume the people here who are selling their equities thinks they're able to time the market?

I nuked it. Will get back in when the trade stuff blows over, at least I'll have a peace of mind.

Why do the big moves up (reversal) or down usually happen past 3 pm?

Wait for CNY to settle. SCHComp already reach global low PE, not much room to trend down.

EAFE money has higher allocation to meet, and PBoC is pumping liquidity...

I agree :(. My portfolio in 2 days dropped from +3% YTD to -0.15% without any news that affect markets... HFT ?
NDP for Unions, PC for people. Only PC can save Ontario.

Algorithm-based trading performed by computers (zero human involvement), plus automated passive index ETF trades.

The latter is a result of many people moving into couch potato portfolios. The former is absolutely idiotic and should have been banned years ago, does nothing but greatly increase volatility.
