* Stocks lose ground.
* Desjardins closes two funds.
* Evolve launches active global bond ETF.
* TD launches three active ETFs.


* Stocks lose ground. North American stock indices posted losses on the week, as market sentiment soured on turmoil in the British government over Brexit negotiations and continuing uncertainty about U.S. trade tension with China, despite U.S. President Trump’s comments on Friday that it may not be necessary to add additional tariffs to China or raise existing ones. The slight uptick in Friday’s session wasn’t enough to overcome a 2.2% loss on the week for the Nasdaq Composite Index, as semiconductor maker NVIDIA Corp. (NASDAQ: NVDA) reported disappointing quarterly earnings and forecast declining fourth-quarter revenue, while Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) contended with more turmoil over its response to Russian propaganda on its site. The blue-chip S&P 500 Composite Index dropped 1.6% on the week, while Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index fell 0.8%, feeling the drag of the 5.1% weekly drop in the price of crude oil.

EdgePoint is the little Toronto-based money manager that could. Its four Fundata FundGrade A+® Awards in 2017 prove the point. EdgePoint Global Growth & Income Fund is one of the FundGrade A+ Award winners, having attained the Award every year since 2013, and is EdgePoint’s global balanced offering, investing in companies anywhere in the world. With a fair bit of flexibility in asset mix, the portfolio was weighted 53% to equity and 47% to fixed income at the end of September.

In my estimation, what we’ve seen in the markets recently is a healthy selloff in a broader bull phase that will eventually stabilize. Much of the market’s actions have been driven by one of the strongest bull quarters (quarters that haven’t immediately followed a low from a major selloff) in this now 10-year long recovery from 2008-09 market crash. The motivation was really driven by many who may have wished to take profit or became skittish at the prospects of what the new earnings season may uncover. There are five key reasons I feel the selling will abate and that a floor will be set, at least for the short-term – until next earnings season in the first quarter of 2019.
