How to deal with an uncertain market: Diversify, relax, rebalance, repeat


The U.S. stock market has risen 47 per cent in less than two years.

The international market is up more than 33 per cent and the Canadian index has risen about 25 per cent.

If you’re adding money to the markets, you should be disappointed. I am.

I prefer to see sinking markets.

    Finally getting around to funding my Saxo Brokerage! Took a bit from China as they don’t notarize ID’s. I am from Japan but with heavy US interests. I don’t know if I will retire to Japan. My Saxo account is tied to the US dollar as my earnings are in US dollars. Would it still be important for someone like me to buy Vanguard’s Japanese Government Bonds, Vanguard Japan Government Bond Index Inv JPY using US dollars? I don’t have much JPY earnings. Thank you.
