Don’t fear the next stock market crash! It could be your chance to retire rich

Posted on

first_img Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Harvey Jones Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Harvey Jones | Tuesday, 13th October, 2020 A lot of investors have been worrying about the next stock market crash, ever since the last one. Many will have been deterred from buying UK shares as a result, fearing their value will plunge shortly afterwards.By holding back, they missed the dramatic 1,000-point resurgence in the FTSE 100, a rise of 20% that leaves it trading at around 6,000 today. That’s the danger of waiting for the perfect time to invest in UK shares. You simply don’t know what’s going to happen next. Nobody predicted the last market crash, and they won’t call the next one correctly too.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…That’s right, there’ll be a next one. There always is, because that’s what stock markets do. They crash. Regularly.Buy UK shares when they are downAccording to Wikipedia, we’ve been through 14 global stock market crashes since the turn of the millennium, although you won’t recall most of them. The ones you will remember are the dotcom bubble in 2000, the financial crisis of 2007/08 and, of course, the Covid crash in February/March this year.What did those three stock market crashes have in common? They hurt at the time, but markets recovered after a while. Investors who bought UK shares when markets were down cashed in when they bounced back. This will have boosted their chances of building a sufficiently large pot of money to get rich and retire early, which is what investing is all about.We now find ourselves in an in-between world. Share prices have been idling for several months. Investors are watching and waiting to see where they go next. By rights, stock markets should be crashing. The second wave of the coronavirus is upon us. The UK isn’t the only country desperately trying to strike a balance between saving the economy and saving lives. Some major industries, such as travel and cinema, have been almost destroyed.Share prices are now underpinned by stimulus totalling trillions of dollars. Politicians are scared to let stock markets crash, for all the wider damage that will cause. That’s something to bear in mind if you’re worried about investing at today’s prices.Forget the stock market crash and buy sharesI wouldn’t recommend holding back from investing today in the hope of taking advantage of a stock market crash tomorrow. The market could rise instead, making shares more expensive rather than cheaper. If that happened, you might look back on today as a missed opportunity.So when is the very best time to buy shares? The answer is simple. Whenever you have a bit of money to spare. The stock market will make it work harder than almost any other asset class, even if it does crash from time to time. Better still, you can take your returns free of tax inside a Stocks and Shares ISA.So don’t worry too much about the next stock market crash. If it happens, do what you should always be doing.

The motion approved by the synod empowers ACSA to negotiate with financial institutions to create investment portfolios that exclude fossil fuels.

Florida to boost widespread COVID-19 antibody testing as trends don’t improve

Posted on

first_imgHospitalizations are up 40 percent statewide over the past two weeks, with Miami-Dade and Pinellas county hospitals near capacity, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) warned.By John Haughey | The Center SquareGov. Ron DeSantis said Florida will expand COVID-19 testing capabilities beyond diagnosing whether someone has the disease to determining whether they have antibodies and how widespread asymptomatic people are.“The problem is if you’re negative, it doesn’t mean you can’t get it the next day. It’s really a fleeting thing to have a negative test,” DeSantis said Monday at The Villages. “If you do an antibody test and have the antibodies, well that’s something very significant in terms of information.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here TAGSAntibody TestingCOVID-19Governor Ron DeSantisThe Center Square Previous article“What Goes Where” tool helps Orange County residents recycle the right stuffNext articleOrange Co. clerk’s office hosts free legal forum: Evictions process in a COVID-19 environment Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate You have entered an incorrect email address!

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Antibody testing, which indicates whether someone had the virus, is available in Florida only for medical professionals and first responders at drive-thru test sites across the state.According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibodies may provide protection from recontracting the virus and help create “herd immunity” to COVID-19.CDC and the University of Miami have conducted antibody testing in south Florida, with results suggesting the virus is 11 to 16 times more prevalent than estimated.Florida reported 6,336 new confirmed cases Monday, raising the total to 206,447 since March 1. Florida set a U.S. record Saturday for most cases in a single day with 11,458.The Florida Department of Health (DOH) COVID-19 dashboard reports 3,880 people have died in the state from COVID-19. Over the past week, an average of 43 people a day have died, up from 30 a day in mid-May but below the 60-a-day average in late April.DeSantis has attributed the spike partially to an increase in testing. About 45,000 tests are being conducted daily statewide, according to DOH, double May’s testing, which was double April’s testing.With many reopened businesses conducting tests on its workers, DeSantis said the statewide median age for those testing positive for COVID-19 has dropped from the mid-50s to the mid-30s.People under 35 years old are less likely to be seriously sickened from COVID-19 than those over 65 years old, but they can spread the disease. DeSantis said Monday the most common age of those testing positive the past few weeks is 21 years old.“From a clinical perspective, 1,000 cases under the age of 30 is going to be less significant than 50 cases in a long-term care facility,” he said.According to DOH, however, the percent of positive tests out of tests conducted is increasing. For the week that ended Saturday, the state’s positivity rate was 18 percent, four times higher than mid-May’s weekly positivity rate of 4.6 percent.“I want us to be in May or in early June, when we were at 3 or 4 percent,” DeSantis said Monday. “We want to get back to that for sure.”Another alarming trend is hospitalizations are up 40 percent statewide over the past two weeks, with Miami-Dade and Pinellas county hospitals near capacity, the American Health Care Association (AHCA) warned.Because of a hospital bed shortage, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Monday ordered restaurants be limited to takeout and delivery services, and he closed gyms, banquet halls and vacation rentals, starting Wednesday.Since mid-May, the county’s daily COVID-19 cases have ballooned from 300 to more than 2,000. On Monday, more than 1,600 COVID-19 patients, including 168 on ventilators, were hospitalized. That number has doubled in two weeks.Gimenez attributed the accelerating outbreak to young adults crowding restaurants and bars without masks or practicing social distancing.“We can tamp down the spread if everyone follows the rules, wears masks and stays at least 6 feet apart,” he said.U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the incumbent Democrat that Republican Gimenez is running against in their November congressional election, tweeted Monday that Gimenez reopened too soon “just to please” DeSantis and President Donald Trump.“This is failed leadership,” she said. “Our community deserves better.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleOn Farms and Forestlands, Every Day Is Earth DayNext articleFed Report Shows Tough Conditions in Ag Country Hoosier Ag Today SHARE Growth Energy, in partnership with the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE), announced the release of their new curriculum aimed at educating high school students to the world of biofuels. The curriculum is the first industry-supported biofuels curriculum that provides students a guided in-classroom experience and will offer ag educators the tools needed to provide students with an array of technical skills and historical knowledge in biofuels.“Our one-of-a-kind curriculum offers students a glimpse into the innovative world of biofuels,” said Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor. “Every day, the biofuels industry is working alongside the ag community to provide cleaner fuels and products for American drivers and consumers. We are excited for high school students to experience first-hand the role STEM education plays in our nation’s agriculture and energy and learn through our curriculum how the next generation of biofuels are moving rural America into the future. We are proud to offer this curriculum to our nation’s ag educators and help to foster a new generation of biofuels advocates among the leaders of tomorrow.”Dr. Wm. Jay Jackman, NAAE executive director, said, “NAAE’s Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) team was pleased to partner with Growth Energy to develop these instructional resources to teach students, and teachers, the important role of biofuels in meeting energy demands for the twenty-first century.”The curriculum offers agricultural educators a two-week long course with six activities. These activities not only allow students to produce their own biofuel and measure its energy content and emissions, but also give them the technological and historical background to ensure a full understanding of why science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) activities and biofuels are so important to agricultural innovation.The curriculum is available for download on Growth Energy’s website here.Source: Growth Energy Home Indiana Agriculture News Growth Energy, NAAE Release Curriculum to Promote Biofuels Education in the Classroom Growth Energy, NAAE Release Curriculum to Promote Biofuels Education in the Classroom Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 21, 2019 last_img read more
