Insider Trading Canada - 3 Free Resources for Tracking the Change in Canadian Insider
In this "Insider Trading Canada" article I will reveal the 3 free resources for tracking the change in Canadian
insider ownership. In addition, I will also inform you how I use these resources myself, which you can read in the
notes at the bottom of this page.
To track the insider trading in Canada, you can visit the website of TMXmoney.com where you can find the
'Insider Trade Summaries' of the Toronto Stock Exchange and the TSX Venture Exchange by clicking the links provided. These trade summaries provide a daily
summary of the top 10 stocks with the most insider buying and selling of shares, by volume
as well as by value.
TMXmoney.com also provides a weekly summary, which can be viewed by clicking here. In this weekly summary, you will find the top 5 stocks with the most anonymous
trading by volume, the top 5 stocks with the highest insider trading (Canada) volumes and the 10 stocks with the
highest short positions.
For a broader view on insider trading in Canada, I recommend you to visit the website of CanadianInsider.com.
Just like InsiderTracking.com (see our Insider Trading USA page), CanadianInsider.com is part of the INK Research Group. On
CanadianInsider.com you will find, among other things, a list of all the daily insider
transactions, ranked by volume. This list, called Recent Marker Activity can be viewed by clicking the link provided.
On CanadianInsider.com you can also find the last 10 trades within the last 6 months made by insiders
of a company of your choice. Just type in the company's name or stock symbol in the search bar in the top right
corner and you will be taken to a new web page on which the insider trading of that specific stock is shown.
If you would like to monitor the change in insider stock ownership of the stocks in your portfolio, you
can receive email alerts from CanadianInsider.com, free of charge for up to a maximum of 25
stocks. You can sign up for a free account by clicking on this link and then you can manage your own watchlist.
If you would like to see all the insider trading activity in a specific Canadian listed
stock you can visit the website of SEDI (System for Electronic Disclosure by Insiders), which you can access
by clicking here. I have included some screen shots in the following widget to clarify how to use this
website in order the get the required information. You can start this widget by clicking on the first
small image you see on the left.
Step 1: Go to www.sedi.ca and select “English” in order to enter the website.
Step 2: Select “Access public filings” in the top right corner.
Step 3: Select “View summary reports” from the menu on the left.
Step 4: Select “Insider transaction detail” (from the available "Report titles") and click on the “Next”-button.
Step 5: Enter “Search Criteria” and click on the “Search”-button. (Read the note at the bottom of this widget too.)
Step 6: Select the required issuer by clicking on the (blue) “View”-link.
Step 7: Finally, you can view the Insider transaction details of the company of your choice.
Note accompanying "Step 5":
First, you select if you want the Transactions sorted by 'Insider' or 'Security designation'. By
default the insider transactions are sorted by insider.
Secondly, you select 'Issuer name' where you need to 'Identify insider or issuer'. Then you type (the beginning of)
the name of the company of which you would like to view the insider transactions. In this example you see 'teck'
referring to Teck Resources Limited.
Third, you select 'Date of transaction' where you need to 'Identify date range'. Then, select the date range you
wish to search for. (I usually select a range of over one year, starting on the 1st of January in the year before
the current year, until the day I am analysing the insider transactions.) After filling in the date range, you
click the 'Search' button at the bottom of the page.
Of course, you can also investigate the other possibilities SEDI offers at the different steps from the widget,
but I almost only use the selections which are described, to gather insight in the insider stock trading of a
specific Canadian stock.

Note: I review the Recent Market Activity list from CanadianInsider.com
every day before the exchanges open. Once a week, I visit TMXmoney.com for their weekly summary. I study these
reports closely as they provide me with a valuable source of possible buying and selling signals.
Note: When I am analysing a certain Canadian listed stock to determine if I
can add it to my stock portfolio, I always first visit the website of SEDI to inform myself about the recent stock
trading by its insiders.
Note: After a Canadian listed company is added
to my portfolio, I add the ticker symbol to my watchlist on CanadianInsider.com, so that I will receive automatic
email alerts when insiders are buying or selling shares in their company.
Cautionary Note: Although I acknowledge the importance of the information insider
stock trading reveals, I am cautious to draw conclusions about the insider trading which takes place in (late)
December due to the January Effect.
