The DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) record run of 9 consecutive days ended with Donald Trump's "fire and fury" comments to North Korea. The record for the DJIA is 12 consecutive days of gains and that was set in January 1987, months before the Black Monday crash. Maybe it has something to do with the number 7...

Canadian’s are very loyal when it comes to investing in home grown companies. This is often reflected in our heavily weighted portfolios of natural resource stocks and of course, our financial institutions. Living in the heart of oil and gas country, I know how easy it is to get caught in a trap investing in companies in our own backyard.

Have you ever blown up your trading or investment account? I have and it sucks. After making a few successful trades in my first self-directed account over 14 years ago, I thought I had things figured out. My next trade was going to be the "big one".
