Forget spread betting and forex trading. I’d buy and hold crashing FTSE 100 stocks today

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The FTSE 100’s recent crash could tempt some investors to seek to profit from its short-term price movements. After all, the index and other assets such as forex are currently highly volatile. They could move sharply in either direction over a short time period. As such, the profit potential of short-term trading may be high.However, the risks involved in such a strategy could be significant. The news flow regarding coronavirus is impossible to predict, and could have a major impact on investor sentiment. Therefore, investors may be better off simply buying and holding FTSE 100 stocks ahead of a potential recovery.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Risky strategyThe high volatility currently present in financial markets can mean quick profits for those traders who can accurately predict upcoming price movements. The problem is that anticipating those movements correctly on a consistent basis is highly challenging. Financial markets are highly dependent on news flow regarding coronavirus in the near term, as well as a multitude of other variables. Since it is impossible to know how news will evolve over the coming days, weeks and months, there is a significant risk that you could experience losses.Buying shares and holding them for the long term sometimes leads to losses. However, those are paper losses that are not realised until an asset is sold. By contrast, products such as spread betting and forex can lead to mounting losses over a short period of time due in part to their use of leverage, and the fact that trades are often short term in nature. As such, buying and holding shares could prove to be a lower-risk means of capitalising on a possible stock market recovery.Return potentialAlthough it is possible to generate high returns from spread betting and forex, a buy-and-hold strategy can also yield impressive total returns. Investing during past bear markets, for example, has enabled investors to profit from the cyclicality of the stock market. With the FTSE 100 having always recovered from its lowest ebbs to report new record highs, buying low and selling high seems to be a consistently successful strategy.Moreover, it is a far simpler means of generating a profit over the long term. Buying and holding high-quality shares is less labour-intensive than conducting multiple short-term trades. It also saves on commission costs, and does not require the use of leverage. This can make it a much more attractive option from a risk/reward standpoint.Of course, buying and holding shares may in itself seem to be a risky move right now. Markets could realistically move lower in the near term, and lead to a difficult period for investors. But, through buying companies with solid balance sheets and strong cash flow, you can increase your chances of surviving the market crash and benefitting from its likely recovery.

They live, attend school and learn some of the most difficult, beautiful music ever written in the Episcopal/Anglican cathedral choir tradition. They are ordinary boys with extraordinary talent. Hear them sing and see what life is like at this remarkable institution in a new video from the Episcopal Church Office of Mission Communication, Saint Thomas Choir School.Founded in 1919, Saint Thomas Boys Choir boasts a long history of training world-class musicians and singers while teaching them the basics of reading, writing and ‘rithmatic.“There is no other school in North America where you can walk in and hear this music,” commented the Rev. Andrew C. Mead, rector emeritus of Saint Thomas.“Saint Thomas Choir School is a hidden treasure of the Episcopal Church,” noted Mike Collins, Episcopal Church Manager of Multimedia.  “It’s the only school of its kind in the United States and one of only three in the world.”For more information contact Collins at [email protected] Rector Belleville, IL Rector Tampa, FL Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs December 24, 2014 at 2:59 pm Yes to the above comments about the USA choir schools.

Trans lives matter!

first_imgTaja DeJesusIn the first two months of 2015, at least eight transgender women have been murdered in North America, including one trans woman in Canada. This killing spree, mired in hate and bigotry, doesn’t make the national corporate-owned news media. There is no mass outrage over the killings of these women, although they are mourned by many. It is mainly the lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer media and organizations that report their deaths.The year’s first three known killings of transgender women in the U.S. occurred over a two-week period in January. They were all trans women of color, two Black and one Latina.Lamia Beard, 30, of Norfolk, Va., was found the morning of Jan. 17 with severe gunshot wounds; she was transported to a hospital where she died. Beard was a musician who sang and played four instruments. A fluent French speaker, she received a full scholarship to Bethune Cookman College.Penny ProudOn Jan. 26, Ty Underwood, 24, of Tyler, Texas, was found dead in her car of three gunshot wounds. She had recently been accepted into the nursing program at Kilgore College. (autostraddle.com, Jan. 28)Michelle (Yazmin) Vash Payne, 33, of Los Angeles died of multiple stab wounds on Jan. 31.

Africa and China strengthen ties

first_imgThe Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) Summit in Beijing on Sept. 3 and 4 will help strengthen what are already good Sino-African political and economic relations.With this objective as the goal, the motto of the meeting is “China and Africa: Toward an Even Stronger Community with a Shared Future through Win-win Cooperation.”Along with President Xi Jinping and other senior Chinese leaders, numerous African leaders, heads of the African Union, the United Nations secretary-general and representatives of international and regional entities are expected to attend the summit.Indicators of the strength of the current economic ties between Africa and China are impressive. For example, the volume of trade between the two parties increased 17 times between 2000 and 2017. According to Chinese customs statistics, the value of trade between the two zones last year amounted to $170 billion. By April 2017, with financing from China, more than 3,000 miles of motorways and railways had been built in African countries.These days, more and more opinions have been expressed on the third summit of FOCAC, an organization created in 2000.The Ethiopian deputy minister for Finance and Economic Cooperation, Admasu Nebebe, told Xinhua that “African countries need to transform their agricultural sector, engage in vigorous industrial development, invest in their infrastructure, and put resources to develop their science and technology if they are to successfully develop their economies like China.” (Aug. 26)Sun Baohong, Chinese ambassador to Kenya, said the upcoming FOCAC Beijing Summit will mark a new stage in China-Africa ties as it will formulate the direction of future development, backed by traditional friendship between the two sides. “The summit will also help China-Africa cooperation develop in a more coordinated and balanced manner and further promote South-South collaboration as well.” (China Daily, Aug. 27)Another diplomat, Ahcène Boukhalfa, Algerian ambassador to Beijing, said the traditional friendship between China and African countries has a long history and has always been based on mutual respect, mutual benefit, noninterference in internal affairs and win-win cooperation.While calling for further cooperation in science and technology and infrastructure construction, Boukhalfa said that he is certain that China and Africa “have a common future.” (China Daily)He Yafei, a former Chinese foreign minister, is of the opinion that the summit will confirm the success of cooperation with mutual advantages between different civilizations. He stresses that the deepening partnership between China and Africa will benefit both sides economically and help safeguard the rule-based international trading system.A Chinese scholar, Wang Liming, executive vice-president of Renmin University of China, said China and African countries have provided wisdom and solutions to building a more reasonable international order through FOCAC. “Given the increasing calls for reforming the existing global governance system to cope with the world’s common challenges, China-Africa friendly cooperation provides new thinking for resolving major global problems,” Wang said.This article was first published in Avante, the weekly newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party on Aug. 30.
