Best Canadian Stocks to Consider in an Upcoming Recession
How to Create a Canadian All Weather Portfolio Fund
A study by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) said this was Canada's second brush with near-recession conditions after 2015. But ominously, the bank warns that a third instance of a recession risk looms in 2020 when the US could witness a slowdown after exuberant growth and jobs conditions in this year. The Canadian and US economies are pretty much joined at the hip and if the US slows down, Canada could also feel the pain.
According to Deloitte, Canada's economy stalled in Q4 but did not derail. They think the Canadian economy will likely grow a tepid 1.3% this year and a marginally better 1.5% in 2020.
But when elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. And that brings us to the recessionary implications for Canada from the US-China trade showdown.
Introducing Hashtag Investing 3.0: A Premium Social Platform for Stock Market Investors
If you don’t already know what an all weather portfolio fund is I highly recommend looking at the resources linked in this article to learn more about them.

Q&A Interview with Rob Koyfman, Founder/CEO of Koyfin
Hashtag Investing is simply a community network of stock investors looking to learn, share, and discuss stocks, stock markets, equities, and other investments online in real-time. When we first started out we started building this community using Slack. Slack is a business communication tool that allows companies to chat and discuss internally. In a sense, it is meant to replace email where it can handle hundreds and even thousands of users in a group chat-like setting. Slack has been a key system for us in growing and starting out and there will be some members that will stick within that platform naturally.

Understand your Risk Set Point and Make Better Decisions
In January this year, a Bloomberg survey found that analysts saw a median 25 percent chance of a slump in the next 12 months, up from 20 percent in the December survey, and at a six-year high.
The January survey was conducted within a scenario of an ongoing trade war with China, the government shutdown, and rising volatility in the financial markets.
That survey came upon the heels of a December 2018 survey of US CFOs by Duke University that showed 82% expected a recession to begin by the end of 2020.
Hashtag Investing Culture and Member Principles
I was watching the movie Free Solo the other day, and it got me thinking about trading. The movie, which recently won the Academy Award for Best Documentary, follows the mountain-climber Alex Honnold as he attempts the first free solo ascent of Yosemite's El Capitan 3000 ft rock face. Free solo means, rather unbelievably, climbing alone without the aid of ropes, fixed gear, or any other protective equipment. One slip, one wrong move and you inevitably fall to a grisly death on the valley floor. A death which has claimed many of Alex's friends over the years.

Press Release: ShareAlpha and ValueWalk Partner to Provide Proprietary Stock Discovery Tool to ValueWalk Premium Members
Stock market trading has come a long way from its initial beginning in 1817. Before computers, stock exchanges were held at physical exchange locations. Traders gathered at pits to buy and sell securities through open outcry. Throughout the day, traders would mark in their notebooks the trades they accepted and then settle their books with the transaction counterpart. This system stayed pretty much the same until the NYSE in 1971, the world's first electronic stock market.
