I've created a new site section: Personal finance term definitions. It's now listed on the Resources page.

It has a sad 2 entries to start, but it's a start!

There have been some discussions about this over the years, I think most recently in this thread.

Here's a sample list of definitions that have been requested:

  • HELOC
  • BOC
  • Deposit broker
  • Push/pull
  • FI
  • Norbert's Gambit

What other definition requests do you have?

Is anybody interested in helping to write some of the definitions?

Thanks Peter !

As a relative novice with the more technical terms, I for one would greatly appreciate this ... and I'm sure, Many others will too.

To take a stab at the definition of 'BOC', maybe we could Copy & Paste from here > https://www.bankofcanada.ca/about/ ... or just simply use the link to provide the definition.

There are better and more recent explanations on Finiki and Canadian Couch Potato, with caveats and pitfalls on what NOT to do. Further, certain platforms such as at BMOIL and RBCDI dont require journaling of shares first to complete the transaction.

P.S. I think a glossary of terms are helpful, albeit Googling always remains a viable option.
