Why no indexing in non-registered accounts?
Because of ACB tracking?
Our first original non-registered account of individual equities was started in the early 80's long before index funds/ETF's were available. This is our second non-registered portfolio now all individual Canadian dividend stocks, sector diversified and started in 2003. Portfolio one was sold in 1999 to pay for a large down payment on our house. I didn't want a repeat of the same portfolio contents in the RRSP's and TFSA's so back in 2010 they were converted to all global couch potato's. All the portfolios including the non-registered are super easy to run in any kind of market. The same value investing thought process is applied to each. Whichever sector is down in the non-registered account gets any new investment money, Same in the registered except it's whatever asset class is lagging gets the money thrown at it. Even though there's 27 Canadian company stocks in the non-registered, I don't trade much so the number of ACB's that have to be calculated from this portfolio each year are fairly small.

Why do the big moves up (reversal) or down usually happen past 3 pm?
US bond market mark their books at 3pm ET. Indexers are active. 3:45pm deadline for Mkt on Close orders etc.

Found the possible answer in unexpected place: Margin Call: Burst Of Sell Orders At 2:43PM Was Highest Since The Flash Crash
This is a great example of why these automated algorithm-based trades should be banned, at least in highly volatile periods. All they do is create extrapolate massive volatility. Commentator on CNBC was saying same thing this morning, these computerized trades without any human thought are becoming absolutely ridiculous.

That would seem a little disingenuous, if you benefit from them on the way up, why should you not pay on the way down?
