    BIR – Definite profit taking going on at this level including me. The sector’s good it’s just overextended and needs to consolidate.
    CNQ – Great rally from a nice bottom

    Pivotal day tomorrow with Jerome Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole. I am amazed at the buying going on now instead of investors going defensive. Powell could push the market in either direction but bets are being placed that the direction is up.

    Hi Ron/BC

    Thanks for the chart on BIR. Much appreciated.


    How is the golf game these days? Playing lots?
    I’m playing more 3-4 times a week.

  5. Ron/BC Says:


    I can’t play golf right now as I need a hip replacement and walk around with a cane. And I’m on a wait list here in B.C. for surgery. Only I know that it will be forever to get medical help here. So I’m booked to get private surgery in Calgary in October. It costs $28,000 plus the cost of a motel and flight costs for me and a lady friend to help out after for awhile. But I was considering buying another SUV and I’ve decided the hip replacment will just have to replace the SUV I was thinking of buying. Not such a bad deal. But I envy you golfing. I was thinking I could likely rent a cart to golf and walk to my ball and then back to the cart but I haven’t tried it yet and I wouldn’t want to hold up golfers behind me. Life’s a b…. I know.

  6. Ron/BC Says:

    BIG DAY tomorrow with the U.S.Federal Reserve likely to raise interest rates sharply. And hopefully rates will then rise sharply on the GICs here in Canada. I recall back in about 1980 a person could get 19% to 21% on their money at the bank. I say bring back the good old days……Right now about the highest rate one can get with a GIC is 4.50% with Tangerine’s 1yr GIC.

  7. TomC Says:

    Have you considered putting yourself on a cancellation list for hip surgery. Sometimes it can help speed it yup
