I would guess the US would raise rates before CAD would. Which would make our dollar weaker.
I always thought that inflation was going to be the way to get rid of the impact of our pesky debt. So maybe they'll be content with a higher than normal inflation rate for a while.

The whole market seems to be in a bubble. The TSX keeps going up. June is on average a down month of something like -0.4% for the S&P500.

I took advantage of BMO's commission-free ETFs and bought small quantities of VFV and XIU for my wife's TFSA.

Then the next day, I tried to top up my own RRSP and TFSA by placing limit orders based on the previous day's low to try picking them up on the volitility. But so far they have not been filled. Makes you wonder if just buying at market would be better since I want them anyways. Why waste time?
