3 reasons why the 2020 stock market crash could help you get rich and retire early

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address See all posts by Harvey Jones Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img This year’s stock market crash and recovery has been traumatic and confusing for investors. Those who panicked and sold when the FTSE 100 fell more than 2,500 points will be kicking themselves as markets rebounded almost as quickly.A stock market crash is not the time to sell shares, it is the time to buy high quality businesses, while they trade at reduced prices.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…History shows that stock markets always recover after a downturn. Those who take the opportunity to buy cheap FTSE 100 shares when they are down have a much better chance of building a portfolio big enough to help them retire early and in comfort.I’d buy cheap shares todayEverybody loves a sale. It’s an opportunity to buy high-quality goods at reduced prices. A stock market crash is like a sale. Suddenly, the companies you covet are available at reduced prices. You have to choose carefully, rather than splurge money everywhere. Focus on companies with strong balance sheets, loyal customers, a defensive aspect against competitors, and generous cash flows.The problem is that too many investors lose their nerve. They expect markets to fall further, and miss the buying opportunity. Too many prefer to buy when the economy is growing and the outlook is bright. In other words, when shares are expensive. It makes far more sense to buy when stocks are cheap during a crash, and potentially much better value.Markets recover after a crashNervousness in the face of a stock market crash is understandable. The big fear is that share prices will fall further, and never recover. Especially when the crash is as dramatic as the recent one. Yet markets can bounce back surprisingly quickly, as we have seen.This particular recovery has been given a massive helping hand by monetary and fiscal stimulus. That called an instant halt to the stock market crash in March. By some calculations, money flowing into the economy is equivalent to global GDP. That is likely to drive share prices higher in the longer run. That means there is still a buying opportunity today, provided you remember the following.Investing is a long-term gameToo many investors are shortsighted. They buy shares today hoping they will be higher tomorrow, and panic at the thought they may be lower instead. This is all wrong. You should be looking to hold your shares for at least five years, and ideally 10, 20, 30 or 40 years. That is how long most people have to invest for retirement.Those who were too nervous to buy shares during the stock market crash in March have forgotten this point. You should not be aiming to make a quick buck from falling stock markets, but building long-term wealth. If you keep your eyes on the ultimate goal, you will feel much more confident buying shares when prices are down.That way you can use the stock market crash to get rich and retire early.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Arthur Bernabei se reúne con voluntarios que ayudan a recibir y a procesar a los refugiados según llegan a Nickelsdorf, Austria. Foto de Lora Bernabei.Pero entonces los Bernabei se enteraron de que los refugiados estaban siendo bien recibidos en la frontera austríaca, en consecuencia reorientaron su misión y comenzaron a hacer viajes regulares a Nickelsdorf, un punto de significación histórica y de recepción para personas que escapaban de conflictos a través de Hungría.“Vimos el campo por el que ellos entran y luego resulta mucho más sofisticado en Nickelsdorf”, dijo ella, “con tiendas que tienen carteles que dicen ‘Nos sentimos felices de ayudarles’”.Durante el primer viaje de los Bernabei a Nickelsdorf, un trayecto de dos horas en auto desde su granja, llevaron 400 kilos de manzanas y se las entregaron al centro de recepción de refugiados de la Cruz Roja. Desde entonces ellos han regresado con zapatos, artículos de aseo personal, alimentos enlatados y otros artículos para ayudarlos a lo largo de su viaje.Los refugiados llegan al centro de recepción de Nickelsdorf y, por lo general, permanecen allí una noche. Todos los días el centro se transforma. Se llenan los autobuses y transportan a los refugiados a la frontera alemana, mientras el centro se limpia y se reemplaza la ropa de cama para los próximos que lleguen.

La respuesta a la crisis de los refugiados en Hungría y en Austria Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Smithfield, NC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Albany, NY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Lora y Arthur Bernabei recogen manzanas en su granja de 200 hectáreas en el sudoeste de Hungría antes de dirigirse a Nickelsdorf, Austria, donde están acogiendo a refugiados.Este artículo es parte de una serie que explora la respuesta de la Iglesia Episcopal y sus asociados ecuménicos e interreligiosos a la crisis mundial de los refugiados. Otros artículos de esta serie se pueden encontrar aquí.[Episcopal News Service] Mientras millares de refugiados que huyen de la guerra empezaron a llegar a la estación de ferrocarril de Budapest, Hungría, a principios del verano, los episcopales Lora y Arthur Bernabei supieron que, como cristianos, estaban llamados a responder con amorosa solicitud.Recogieron manzanas de su granja de 200 hectáreas en el suroeste de Hungría, cargaron con ellas su auto y se dirigieron a la capital para comenzar a distribuírselas a los hombres, mujeres y niños que anduvieron durante semanas para encontrar seguridad en los brazos de sus vecinos europeos. Los refugiados estaban exhaustos, traumatizados y en urgente necesidad de comida y de agua.“Cuando llegamos por primera vez a la estación de trenes, vimos a personas como nosotros, que les daban bolsas de alimento y agua”, dijo Lora vía Skype desde su granja húngara. “En verdad queríamos encontrar un modo de compartir de la abundancia que tenemos en nuestras propias vidas”.Los Bernabei llenaban un carrito de compras y en dos minutos se vaciaba. Luego regresaron con su furgoneta, llevando el equivalente de 40 carritos de compra. Y eso se agotó en menos de una hora.Le enviaron un email a su sacerdote local y él puso un aviso solicitando ayuda en el boletín de la parroquia. “De repente teníamos un montón de voluntarios”, contó ella. “La gente sencillamente quería ayudar: ropa, comida, mi auto se llenó hasta los topes”.En ese tiempo, ignoraban que a principios de septiembre Hungría arrojaría a muchos de los refugiados en prisión y cerraría sus fronteras para obligar a los que buscaran asilo en el futuro, muchos de los cuales se dirigían a Alemania, a encontrar rutas alternativas a través de países como Serbia, Croacia y Eslovenia.“La situación fue cambiando muy rápidamente. Hungría obtuvo malísima opinión de la prensa y… estaban despejando las estaciones ferroviarias”, dijo Lora. El centro de recepción de refugiados en Nickelsdorf se arregla todos los días según los refugiados se procesan y se transportan a Alemania. Foto de Lora Bernabei.“Queríamos hacer nuestra parte de alguna manera, y esto es algo tangible”, explicó Lora. “Me sentí muy conmovida la primera vez que me encontré con los refugiados que son personas con gran dignidad, apuntó ella. “Son tenderos y dentistas y no pueden quedarse en su propio país. Es una suerte que hayan podido llegar hasta aquí. No son pobres: son refugiados políticos y personas como usted y yo. Están huyendo por salvar sus vidas, y sencillamente queremos ayudarles en su trayecto”.Durante 20 años, Lora había sido líder laica en la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, prestando servicios en varias comisiones y juntas, hasta que se mudó a Hungría hace tres años. Ella fue esencial en el trabajo de la Comisión sobre el Ministerio de los Bautizados y en el Instituto Europeo de Estudios Cristianos de la Convención, especialmente notable por su liderazgo en formalizar la visión de su obispo para el proceso de discernimiento y la formación cristiana de por vida tanto para clérigos como para laicos.Al igual que Lora, muchos episcopales y sus asociados ecuménicos a través de Europa no ven su respuesta a la peor crisis de refugiados del mundo desde la segunda guerra mundial como un esfuerzo a corto plazo.“Nuestras iglesias en Europa, con la actual crisis de refugiados, se han hecho presentes en toda partes”, dijo el obispo Pierre Whalon de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, “no sólo [para proporcionar] necesidades básicas, sino también para asesorar en el proceso de asilo”.Además de la respuesta en Hungría, Whalon reconoció la labor de los episcopales en Austria, Bélgica, Francia, Alemania, Italia y más allá en brindarles apoyo y hospitalidad a los refugiados que han arriesgado sus vidas para escapar de la persecución.“Cuando los refugiados] puedan establecerse, se convertirán en increíbles recursos para el país que los acoge”, dijo Whalon. “Es muy importante que la gente sepa eso. No tener compasión de esas personas, con su valor y su desesperación, con sus penas y sus extraordinarios dones, sería una completa y absoluta negación de la realidad de Jesucristo”.Lora se muestra de acuerdo. “Estas personas quieren trabajar, se integrarán muy rápidamente… Quieren ganarse la vida y llegar a ser parte de la sociedad. Son profesionales”.“La guerra no tiene fronteras”, dijo Nagulan Nesiah, encargado del programa de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, que está respondiendo a la crisis de refugiados a través de asociaciones regionales que ofrecen hospitalidad y espacios seguros de acogida mientras las personas atraviesan el continente. “Muchos [de los refugiados] son maestros, abogados y profesionales que tenían hogares y carreras estables. Ahora se encuentra en una situación vulnerable sin ropa ni recursos para atender a sus familias. Llegan a sus nuevos países con ansia y determinación de triunfar”.Las actualizaciones más recientes de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo acerca de su respuesta a la crisis de los refugiados, así como los medios de hacer donaciones, se encuentran aquí.“Es una tarea extremadamente ardua y difícil, pero en todas partes contamos con voluntarios increíblemente creativos y con clérigos dedicados”, dijo Whalon. “Estamos marcando una diferencia en cada comunidad donde participamos, y sólo estamos empezando a abordar esta nueva crisis. Es algo espontáneo y de lo que me siento muy orgulloso”.Pero la actual crisis de refugiados, aunque se centra fundamentalmente en Europa, es un problema global.El gobierno de EE.UU. ha anunciado que aumentará el número de refugiados que se reasentarán en Estados Unidos, de 70.000 a 85.000 en 2016. Al menos, 10.000 de esos refugiados serán de Siria. El resto vendrá de lugares como la República Democrática del Congo, Somalia, Afganistán, Irak, Myanmar, México y Centroamérica, donde la guerra, la violencia y la persecución han obligado a los ciudadanos a huir y han impedido la posibilidad de regresar a sus hogares.El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración y el servicio de reasentamiento de refugiados de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera ayudará a muchas de esas personas a reasentarse en Estados Unidos. (La Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, [ Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society o DFMS] es el nombre legal y canónico con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).Todos los años, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, a través de una red de 30 organizaciones locales, ofrece un amplio espectro de servicios a más de 5.000 refugiados, asilados, inmigrantes especiales con visados y entrantes cubanos y haitianos, que incluyen reasentamiento, empleo y gestión adicional de casos para refugiados con importantes necesidades médicas o mentales. Estos nuevos norteamericanos dependerán de esa ayuda y apoyo mientras rehacen sus vidas con seguridad y paz en Estados Unidos.“Para los episcopales, el ministerio de reasentamiento de refugiados es una manera tangible, importante e influyente de estar en el mundo: una manera de vivir conforme a nuestro Pacto Bautismal de buscar y servir a Cristo en todas las personas, respetando la dignidad de todo ser humano”, dijo Allison Duvall, directora del programa para las relaciones y el copatrocinio de la Iglesia del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración.“El reasentamiento de refugiados es la historia de individuos, familias y comunidades, de vecinos que se conocen, que se cuidan unos a otros, que aprenden de las historias, las experiencias, los fuertes y los dones mutuos. Y al conocerse los unos a los otros, aumentan en comprensión, compasión y respeto”.Materiales para formación y respuestaLas actualizaciones más recientes de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo acerca de su respuesta a la crisis de los refugiados, así como los medios de hacer donaciones, pueden encontrarse aquí.La declaración de la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori sobre los refugiados, así como las sugerencias de individuos y congregaciones [en respuesta a esa declaración] pueden encontrarse aquí.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Industry Reacts to HUD’s Termination of Obama-Era Housing Regulation

With the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on people of color reminding us of the costs of the failure to address barriers to housing opportunity, NAR remains committed to ensuring no American is unfairly denied this fundamental right in the future.”Charmaine Brown, Sr. Consultant, Alignment Strategies, said this situation should have been handled as a “mend it, don’t end it” decision.“If the Rule is considered inefficient, find ways to strengthen it.  The human cost by this decision will be higher than the benefits of convenience and expediency,” Brown said.Brown added that discriminatory practices continued to undermine the values of our country.“It’s especially disappointing that such a measure would be taken at a time when we’re witnessing the devastating impact of systemic and structural disparities on under-resourced communities and families, who are struggling to keep their heads above water,” she said.William Case, President and CEO, American Mortgage Service Co., said while it is likely that the rules under the Obama-era Administration’s regulation were overdone and “a bit cumbersome,” the rules remove too many protections that still necessary.“We still have too many people that, left to their own narrow and ignorant views, will not always do the right thing,” he said.HUD Secretary Dr. Benjamin Carson appeared on Fox News Friday morning to further discuss the decision to terminate the AFFH. Secretary Carson called the ruled “overly burdensome” and put the government in charge of how communities were built and operated.“That is anti-federalism and that’s not how our system was built,” he said.Secretary Carson further said that claims that the Trump Administration is racist is “not true.”“When we came in, there were thousands upon thousands of backlogs of cases—Civil Rights cases, housing rights cases—we obliterated 22,933 cases since we’ve been in that were backlogged from before,” he said.He added the administration has taken actions against numerous cities, signaling out Los Angeles, that were not accommodating disabled individuals.“We’re very active … but we want to do things that make sense, not things that impose bureaucratic control over the people of the United States,” he said.On Thursday, HUD said its new rule—Preserving Community and Neighborhood Choice—defines fair housing to mean housing is affordable, safe, decent, free of unlawful discrimination, and accessible under civil rights laws.The rule defines “affirmatively furthering fair housing” as any action rationally related to promoting any of the above attributes of fair housing.“Now, a grantee’s certification that it has affirmatively furthered fair housing would be deemed sufficient if it proposes to take any action above what is required by statute related to promoting any of the attributes of fair housing,” HUD states. “HUD remains able to terminate funding if it discovers, after the investigation made pursuant to a complaint or by its own volition, that a jurisdiction has not adhered to its commitment to AFFH.” Tagged with: Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Final Rule Department of Housing and Urban Development  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

UK Regions News special: Livingroom is Channel Islands’ first pan-island residential agent

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » UK Regions News special: Livingroom is Channel Islands’ first pan-island residential agent previous nextHousing MarketUK Regions News special: Livingroom is Channel Islands’ first pan-island residential agentA healthy residential property market across the Channel Islands has led Livingroom to expand into the neighbouring island of Jersey.Sheila Manchester16th January 201901,144 Views A healthy residential property market across the Channel Islands has led Livingroom – an award-winning Guernsey estate agency – to expand into the neighbouring island of Jersey.Founder and CEO Simon Torode identified the need to add creative flair to the sector, bringing his experience as an advertising creative to the industry. Livingroom Estate Agents is one of the only agents in the UK with a dedicated, in-house creative team including professional photographers, videographers, designers and licensed drone pilots.Livingroom won a five-star award for the Best Estate Agency Single Office in Guernsey at both the 2017 and 2018 International Property Awards.The expansion into Jersey comes after a busy 12 months for the company. New websites were launched in both Jersey and Guernsey in late 2018, with the latest technology and a Channel Island-first in technology – Transparent Vendor Management (TVM), designed by Livingroom to communicate with clients at every stage of the selling process. Clients can log in and review the sale or letting of their homes with a full timeline of events, including shared feedback from viewings and pending marketing plans.Significant investment has been made in both islands in new premises. The Jersey team occupies a prime 2,000 sq.ft split-level office with seven experienced staff members – adding in excess of fifty years’ experience from inception. The 18-strong Guernsey team moved into new 4,000 sq.ft premises in St Peter Port, adding 100 years of cumulative experience in the local property market.Simon Torode“The decision to expand is not one we’ve taken lightly,” said Torode. “We researched the Jersey market extensively and firmly believe that our focus on client service and dedication to marketing property in an innovative way will add value to the Jersey market.“Our ultimate aim is to bring inspiration to the Jersey property market. Moving home is one of the most exciting things you can do so the process should be enjoyable, not torturous. We’ve taken the first step to achieve this by putting a knowledgeable and ethical team in place who will work hard to understand what clients want and deliver on those requirements. We’re bringing quality and carefully considered customer service back to the Jersey property market.”Jersey property market LivingRooms Simon Torode CHANNEL ISLANDS January 16, 2019Sheila ManchesterWhat’s your opinion?
