I have 250 shares at $55. Letting this one ride for several years. I'm confident this will become a 10x bagger at some point.

I wonder how fast other Big banks will follow ........ and if their stock prices will take a hit
I'll be so happy if TD gives $0 commission, no need for Wealthsimple anymore
How is the National Bank’s platform? Scotiaitrade is inferior compared to TD especially for option to transact online with multi-legs in one order.

I had to take profit after more than tripling my money. If there is an offering and it pulls back i will buy back in but yeah i will hold the remaining 100 shares long term.

Easy to say in hindsight, but I'm sure you had many reasons to not go all-in on QQQ back then just like you'll have many reasons not to do so now and then 10 years from now, could be saying the same thing again.

and what if you were the bag holder that did a buy & hold at the peak of dot.com in 2000 right after QQQ split only to see it drop to $20 in 2002 never to recover back to the price you bought it at until 2015 ... then what?

Easy to say today when in 2010 index investors got crushed with 0 return in the 2000s.

No one forsaw the fed manipulate the bond market and QE the last decade either... more money supply means it's going to the markets. But we'll see what happens moving forward.

^^^ makes you wonder if 'charlie' himself invest in ETF's!

and whats all this MSCI ETF's, why not just buy the MSCI company (Morgan Stanley Capital International) - its 10 year performance is 1774%, 5yr 608%, 1 yr 70%, YTD 39%

from charliebilello 22 August tweet

https://twitter.com/charliebilello?ref_ ... _&ref_url=

cherry picking, it's always interesting when folks post 'past performance'.

in his tweet showing SPY 10 year 333%

over the same period

SSO was 1189%

SPGI was 1034%

Not that i'm complaining, i'm in for more this is getting comical.
Ya, like I said, it’s lifted :).
There was some lag time yesterday morning before the market reacted. I hope you took advantage of that.
Let’s see what today holds. GL!

Agreed!
Luckily, I exited from all Chinese spec positions at the beginning of this year.

Start buying again recently.
Still down on BABA as much as I am up on TCEHY
so I'm even so far on my Chinese plays
