    Possibly. But long term you probably won't.

    The BTSX method has handily beat the index for over 25 years. What do you consider long term?

    Not too hard to beat the S&P TSX long term. Who knows about the future though...BCE could go broke and Barrick could hit oil digging for gold in Chile. I like my chances long term though.

    btw AGT...1 bad quarter...fugedaboutit...buy buy buy (if you got cohones) just put it on a 5 year graph compared to the TSX...time in the market etc etc

    I'll bite

    Stock pickers CAN be the index over time but it's rare. BTSX is a proven strategy but few investors have the discipline to stick to it.

    If you're not sure, not convinced, don't know, doubt whether you can stick to any individual stock strategy then by all means like none suggests index invest. At least you're putting indexing odds (i.e., market like returns) in your favour. Even then, your bad behaviour can get in the way!

    I have only invested in TSX stocks since 2002. Thought that was common knowledge.

    Have to look @ the DNA of price nothing else really matters. If see structure in price in a certain stock or index play when timing is right if not stand aside.
