Well, I started the first one from this specialization and I liked it. At least I liked the lecturer.

Thanks for your response. I try to learn every single day, but as I do not have enough time to enroll in a serious portfolio selection or risk management program, I can simply read the books I keep ordering from amazon, still, it's difficult to catch up against guys which have been studying financial advisory for years.

Any recommendation in maximizing my learning other than with books? I am thinking of starting this coursera online course

The Khan Academy videos are great. There are others as well.

One specifically tailored to young adults through the University of Illinois:

That's good -- it's an approach I take on Questrade too since they don't charge trading fees for buying ETFs. As you buy, you can rebalance to your portfolio weightings. The other thing that may pop up is wide spread between bid/ask price, especially for low volume ETFs, but I think most of yours are quite established -- with TEC building its volume too. I like that you have the 'dials' to weight certain sectors/regions as the economy unfolds. I have a slight bias towards including some bond and gold weighting in a portfolio. I think to evaluate your weightings for growth vs. diversification -- consider looking into the factor exposure of your portfolio. Ben Felix has a good introductory paper on it here:

If you want to take a deep dive, has great tools to investigate factor exposure and correlations between your etfs -- with the caution that backtesting is only as good as the data you put into it. At the very least you can explore what it looks like to swap out various etfs. If you need some background, Coursera has a portfolio course that makes use of that website:
