"listen I'm not here for 5%"

"You can't have negative loan loss provisions forever" - the fact they even exist should send shivers down your spine.

a decade of zero and close to zero interest rates around the world means a lot of bubbles are about to pop. Tsla, corporate bonds/junk bonds, real estate, stocks, etc

This guy knows what is up... And down. 🏁

He's going for at least 30+% given it could take a few months to years to realize

Ok, so he's had six more months of paying 5% divvys on his shorts....and his position is a further 5-10% in the red....I wonder how long he can keep this up???

This lady is very intelligent to know how to ask good questions with this guy and keep her cool. She seems very knowledgeable.

The Canadian government will back the insured loans... and Canadian tax payers back the government if they can't cover the losses.

We're gonna get F%#"*ed

You don’t have to apologize that much just because you are talking to a Canadian!

Author — Nicola Tesla


Steve was spot on, it is going on right now.

I think the level of denial among Canadian financial "experts" is an alarming red flag.

This man is simply betting that things should go in the direction that they appear to be going. A normal credit cycle. Not a calamity. Even this suggestion is met with resistance. In many cases, vitriolic resistance. Nobody is able to argue why this man is incorrect, I'm simply hearing smears and denial.

This is cause for concern. Mortgagees should prepare themselves, especially if you were conned into a variable rate. HELOC users should be at red alert.
