A friend just commented on Facebook:
"Mortgage rates on the rise? Think again. Five year mortgage rates about to drop. Far lower now than a year ago. Why ? Canada's 5 year bond yield is now at or close to a TWO YEAR LOW following the US Federal Reserve removing its expectation of "further gradual increases" from today's statement."

I tend to agree with this view, and also saw an interesting few articles  on a recent quiet move my the Bank of Canada. My response:

"Smart observation! also with the recent BoC changes that allow them to purchase CSBs from CMHC, I think the BoC is well aware low rates will be here for a LONG time. Purchasing Canada Savings Bonds will allow the BoC to provide liquidity in the next credit crunch! Article and interesting commentary here: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-11-24/bank-canada-start-buying-mortgage-bonds-canadian-housing-market-cools.  Another interesting article here: https://betterdwelling.com/the-bank-of-canada-officially-began-buying-canadian-mortgage-bonds/"

 

Moral of the story?

Buy income producing assets, and a prudent amount of leverage (good debt) will skyrocket your ROI.  The clues are in the news! You just need to be watching for them...


Until next time, Happy investing!
