Sep 22, 2017 All About Bitcoin: Understanding the New ICO Market

By Michael

The S&P/TSX Composite advanced on Thursday, as gains for heavyweight banking stocks offset declines for gold and base metal miners hurt by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s signal of another interest rate increase this year. It was a good week for healthcare stocks: Covalon Technologies (COV) announced it has received Food and Drug Administration clearance to legally market and sell MediClear PreOp in the U.S. to hospitals, clinics and directly to patients, without the need for a prescription. Prometic Life Sciences (PLI) said longer-term data from its ongoing phase 2 open-label clinical trial in subjects suffering from Alström Syndrome in the U.K., “confirm that the beneficial clinical effects previously observed are sustained during prolonged treatment.” Here are five stories we found interesting this week:

  1. ICO, the new IPO, has already raised $2 billion
  2. If China is banning ICOs, does that mean the technology works?
  3. Sand piles and market ‘Cause and Effect’

Hello wilson



Its a great site its worth 160$ cdn per year. Its give you asecond opinion of a stock or etf. Peter hodson is honest for his recommendation and thats what i like. With all the respect i have for Mr Hodson, Before buying a stock, etf or mutual fund you need to do your homework. You need to consacred alot of time of reading financial book and have some notions in accountant and finance. You need to understand the mission of the company and the sector etc calculate a lot of financial ratio



Dont be scare to loose money because for myself its was a learning period and you become better.



For my first investment I lost 6000$ with nortel network it was a recommendation of my broker. I bought nortel because my broker told me at that time its the best stock of the tsx.



To be honest dont buy a stock only of recommendation of an expert. You need to do some reasearch by yourself. If you dont have time to do that or you dont have the knowledge its better to consult and independant financial expert member of an order without affiliation to a bank or an insurance company.

Hi there my name is Wilson I am 57 years old male I signed up with 5i on a free trial bases just to check it out. I have been very unfortunate with the mutual funds and stock market in my life , I tried so many different people's financial advisors and so on and never gained only loss after loss maybe I am not a patient person. But the reason I am enquiring about your site and willing to join up if you can just explain to me what I am really getting because during your trial I noticed that your recommended stocks was rated some NR some were B- some B and so on you know what I mean which one of these stocks that you would recommend I buy because if I buy them all then some might make money and some might loose so then I would be in the same spot as I was with my advisors. Can you please inform a person here that as been very un lucky with the stock market and which package would you recommend for me please try not to up sell me here because I would be very interested and is the amount of $159.95 per year in CAD or USD currency and is there any applicable taxes on top please I just do not like surprises.
