I've already maxed out my TFSA but I have $50K I'd like to invest for a year with minimal tax implications - is there a way I can do this?

The account numbers for my LIRA RRSP are wrong for both the receiving institution and outgoing one. :facepalm: I've contacted my account manager to fix this error (I'm hoping it wasn't sent off in the meantime) and I hope it won't add too much of a delay. I tend to worry about this sort of thing (th...

When investing, it's generally not wise to have all your eggs in one basket, but does this apply for online brokers? I suppose one could use specific brokers if that particular one has extremely low fees for trading. But since each investment is protected (eg. CDIC), does it matter if they're simply...

I was just wondering what percentage of your portfolio is cash? Is it a good idea to keep say, 10% of your portfolio in cash so that when there is a downtrend, you can buy more of your investments during that time? I know that having a "balanced" portfolio would mean to have say 25% of your portfoli...
