I only recently created my TFSA on EE, below is a interesting read, did not think of it like it is explained below. Hope it is in the right thread, mods to advise as it deals with ETF's

I am surprised people don't understand that the account can and should be used to invest with.

I agree that the account should be called a tax free investment account.

I am battling to understand they "why" of City Lodge other than the momentum play. I tucked into a little of TSG - momentum and I think they have that business / leisure mix which works for me

I'm long anything PGM based on what earnings recently came out like & that was done with platinum below $1000.
I think there is going to be a move to $1500+ for platinum
I'm sitting long atm SSW/RBP/GLN but GLN is being a headacke being tied to London, its more a copper + silver price play for me, Australian thermal coal price has also risen so it should also benefit from that.
I still like RDF as a more safer play.

I'm hoping to catch silver under $25, it nearly hit it this morning.

Given last night's developments, the US job numbers this afternoon all of a sudden has some sort of significance.

I ran for the hills a little earlier this week, did not want to lose capital. When I see ups and downs on the Jse as in one day up on the stocks and one day down... I get skrik. I dont understand when you see those one day ups and one day downs story running over a week or two. I get conservative as an armchair guy
