Investor Boot Camp: How the Market Works will be a two night session through TDSB Continuing Education in April. Dates to be announced still. Location; Mimico Adult Education Centre in south Toronto. This classroom session should be interesting; certain themes will be presented in a new format and more importantly the smaller classroom size will provide for opportunity to address whatever is on your mind. "I would highly recommend this for even the most seasoned investor, not because I need to fill seats but because there's something to be taken from the course and applied to real world investing." - Paul Thornton, Instructor


"First of all, a BIG THANK YOU for taking the time to give these webinars during this unprecedented period. Appreciate the help you’re giving to members to keep us on track and ensure our financial health in these troubling times.  It’s so much clearer when you talk out the daily comment and strategies in the webinar and show charts to clarify. It has been a great help for me anyway."

"Thanks for doing these webinars. As usual, well presented ,informative, and pertinent, especially during these times. The Zoom hook up is superior.
