Any rip-off stories from those who've given ING Direct a shot? by Travis George
It certainly makes itself seem like a legitimate business what with the TV ads and so, but with these days of businesses getting away with murder, I'd like to check for testimonials from those who've gotten ripped off. I guess I'll decide to give it a shot if no one has any testimonials about ING...

Balanced Canadian Portfolio using USD by XYZ
My mother who is 62 and lives in Ontario had decided to have $40.000 USD invested (outside of RRSP), so she had asked for my advice. She should have probably done that when she decided to exchange CDN to USD at the cost of $1.60 CND for $1.00 USD, but that is another story. At this point, she would...

Pay down mortgage or RRSP or RESP by JW
Since my "financial adviser" from the bank is more interested in making money than helping me, I want to know what other people think I should do. Basically we owe $150K in mortage at 5.7%, on a house that worth 300K, owe another 6K in home equity loan also at 5.7%. I have two kids at 4 and 5...

Investment advisor fees by Leopold Stotch
What is an appropriate amount to pay for the services of a fee-based investment advisor? I'd like to say "zero, since I can do just as good a job myself using a discount broker" but it's not my money. My 64 year old mother has $800K to invest, and her portfolio will need some maintenance...

Is Gold and Silver money, or just a commodity? by B J Foster
Gold has one attribute not shared by ANY fiat currency - it cannot be multiplied ('printed') in unlimited quantity. No person, country, entity or interest can dilute the value of the gold in your pocket by 'manufacturing' more of it. Because of this alone, it is bound to ultimately become THE...

Capital gains / foreign exchange question by Shawn
Hi all, Could someone please clarify on this: capital gains are calculated in Canadian dollars, so when a US stock is purchased, we keep track of the cost base in Cdn$, and when we sell and convert the proceeding back to Cdn$, we use the difference to calculate capital gains, correct? But, what if...

How do I invest in Canadian stocks on my own? by [email protected]
I'm new to this. I'd like to invest some money in a canadian stock. Are there any reasons I should go through a broker? Or is there any way to do it directly. What do I have to be aware of? One thing I know I have to be aware of is paying tax on the gains. If gains are calculated at the end...

Peak Oil? by .
My feelings are the price of oil has climbed so dramatically during the last 6 month to one year, that we are due for a big correction in the price of oil. Any comments on this? Also, with the price of oil and gas moving up so quickly, I have read that a lot of industry has not been able to adjust...

Income trusts -- time to invest? by Leopold Stotch
My mother (65) has a few hundred thousand dollars to invest (late father's life insurance policy). She will get a very good pension -- more than enough to cover her living expenses (at a generous lifestyle), so we don't necessarily need to generate monthly income. There are no debts. I'm trying...

Fund Manager's added value by Marcelo
As I am donning my flame-retardent clothing, let me amuze you with my thoughts on this. A lot has been said about most active fund managers failing to beat the index. True, most fail. But some beat it. Well, what you get with an index fund is basically the index minus its MER, other expenses,...
