Well I am not sure I have even an hour to watch a single stock, so no short term trading for me!
Ahamburger- Thanks for the link! The author lays everything out clearly- US dividend stocks- RRSP Canadian dividend and other stocks- RRSP, RESP, TFSA or non registered Fixed income- TFSA or RRSP US growth- TFSA (or RRSP)
I supposed the 15% withholding on US dividends applies to mutual find holdings too. I have a US large cap fund within an RESP (as part of one of those Target date) that is likely being withheld.

NP foiled. The 15% would apply to MF as well, yes. This is why I decided to leave the kids RESP strictly in Canadian holdings. I also didnt want to worry about any currency issues that could possibly arise. I always forget that we probably have unforseen expenses on our mind more than most.(DW and I have 4 kids) This is why we go with the TFSA first. I would rather pay 15% now, than have to worry about the insane taxes would could potentially face if we have to take monies from the RRSP account.
As general rules go, I would say the author did a great job explaining the situation.
