HYCM adds 50 cryptocurrency CFDs & drastically reduces spreads

HYCM, a well-established global forex broker, has added over 50 cryptocurrency CFD* pairs on its MT5 platform, expanding its crypto portfolio to satisfy an increasing demand in the trading of various crypto-to-fiat options. It has also drastically reduced its spreads for all cryptocurrency products.

The broker now offers pairs with Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, as well as EOS, Stellar, TRON, Dash, IOTA, Monero, Zcash and NEO, against fiat currencies, USD, EUR, GBP and JPY, thus providing traders with a rich choice for trading.

The new crypto products are available for trading on HYCM’s fixed, classic, and raw accounts on its MT5 platform with 1:20 leverage and significantly low spreads.

Giles Coghlan, HYCM’s Chief Currency Analyst, commented on the market situation in the crypto space:

“In the midst of our global COVID-19 crisis, central banks around the world are both cutting interest rates and increasing bond-buying programmes. Furthermore, governments around the world have pledged more than $8 trillion in stimulus measures in order to cushion the financial impact of the coronavirus. This all means that nations are now running the risk of inflation levels devaluing investors' cash in the bank.

This is all pushing renewed interest in areas like the cryptocurrency space. Recently high profile investor Paul Tudor Jones advocated the crypto space in the current environment saying “Bitcoin reminds me of gold when I first got into the business in 1976”. For those who don’t know, gold had a very strong bull run in the 1970s.

Cryptocurrencies popularity looks set to grow as investors look to hedge deflationary risk by keeping some of their portfolios in the crypto space. This is why we are delighted to announce the expansion of our cryptocurrency products today.”

By trading cryptocurrencies* with HYCM, traders benefit from the safety of a regulated broker, the possibility to withdraw funds at any time without the need of an exchange, and MT5 charting tools with many available indicators.

2020 Trading Cup gets off to a flying start

The 2020 Trading Cup, a global live trading tournament run by the Australian firm ACY Securities, has begun with a bang and is on track to be the most successful event of its kind ever hosted.

With a minimum of $US150,000 in prize money, the competition is a six-month long live trading contest which consists of 6 stages and concludes with the Grand Final. What makes the Trading Cup unique is how the grand final is conducted.

The top 30 traders from each of the six qualifying stages are invited to trade live in an e-Stadium theatre for their chance to claim a position in the top 10.

The top 10 traders battle it out to be crowned the Grand Champion, while trading over the US Non-farm Payroll data release. The Non-farm Payroll release is the most exciting and volatile release for Forex traders around the world and provides the tension and super-charged atmosphere needed for an exciting final hour of trading.

Ashley Jessen, Head of Marketing at ACY Securities said that the Trading Cup served as a platform for traders to showcase their talent and inspire them to explore what is possible.

“The Trading Cup was built to inspire traders all around the world, to show what is possible with a real-money trading account, across a wide range of asset classes. Last year's final was electrifying with tension building right to the last minute of trading, when the best trader was crowned” said Mr Jessen is a statement today.

He further added that traders should be doing all they can to experience the tournament for themselves.

“Having experienced the grand final first-hand and interviewed a handful of the winning traders, I can confirm that traders should be doing everything they can to claim their spot in the grand final. You will be treated like royalty” concluded Mr Jessen.

Stage 1 kicked off on Monday 1st of June and the Grand Final, which will be broadcast live, will take place in January 2021 at a destination yet to be announced.

Last year’s Grand Final took place at Studio City in Macau (E-sports Arena) with qualifying traders flying in from all over the world and thousands of people tuning in to the live streaming to witness the contestants showing off their trading ability.

Executing their strategies over the US Non-farm Payroll data, the percentage returns from last year’s winners were as per the following table:

It’s our 1st birthday!

We have been fully operational for one year already. And my word, how the year has flown by.

Many have a vested interest in seeing TIOmarkets become a successful multinational and multi-regulated brand. And others are curious to see how a new FX brokerage can evolve healthily in an already saturated space.

Conception

TIOmarkets was not simply invented one fine day in 2018. It did not fly in on an opportunistic wave. It is the brainchild of a team of successful FX veterans who wanted to see improvements in the FX industry, and the financial ecosystem as a whole. Some of these veterans had already created and developed FX brands and some had high-level experience overseeing the transition of binary brands into fast-growing forex brokerages. Others were successful introducers for established brands or otherwise involved in FX and crypto start-ups. Each brought their hard-earned experience, their knowledge and their ideas to the table.

What started as an additional offering to crypto brand trade.io, and an opportunity for crypto clients to access the world’s largest and most liquid market, evolved into its own beast, and became successful in entirely its own right.

While all the initial indicators were positive, nobody quite knew how popular the offerings of TIOmarkets would become amongst FX clients and traders.

Unprecedented growth, month on month, of clients clamoring to access some of the FX industry’s most preferential trading products, combined with imitators and competitors mimicking the brand’s offerings in their own rip-off style, all assert the strength of the brand’s products and offerings. Why bother copying something that doesn’t have potential?

FBS

A responsibility to our investors.

TIOmarkets was initially funded from proceeds of the successful ICO trade.io, which after many months of operation eventually closed its crypto exchange, no thanks to the disadvantageous environment of the crypto space in 2018. Where the crypto world offered an idealistic output to financial investors craving the desire for equality in finance, as well as an end to the injustices prevalent in traditional finance, the swings and turns of crypto did not make for a solid business model. Applying years of experience in the FX markets was the logical next move for the tradeio businesses, asserting that the management team was credible, hardy, and resolute in their goal to bring value to its investors.

We will not fade into the night.

Made famous once again by Trump in recent days, the well-known lines from the original Independence Day movie greatly resonate with the TIOmarkets and trade.io audiences. The TIOnauts - as they are fondly known - have been with TIOmarkets since the beginning. Since before the beginning, in fact. These are a group of core TIOx holders (TIOx being the native token of trade.io), who believe in the trade.io brand and to whom the company owes its initial successes.

They congregate, confer and discuss on various Telegram channels about the brand, and how the company can bring them value. About the pros and cons of marketing, about how soon -– very soon – or not so soon, various products will be offered. And about the trials and tribulations of being a financial investor. Despite the downturn in crypto in 2018, and the challenges faced by the original brand – through thick and thin, our TIOnauts have seen that we will not dissolve into dust. We will emerge stronger from any challenge faced. And TIOmarkets is the ultimate symbol of this. Born from the ashes of trade.io, TIOmarkets goes from strength to strength, to not only bring credit to its original investors, to its management team, but to every single client who deserves better and who deserves a trading environment that will benefit them.

FBS

 

No-nonsense, nonsense. The evolution of our brand.

We have been over-sensitive to the fatigue of forex customers. We know fully well that other brokerages in the FX industry charge through the nose and often apply inexplicable commissions and fees to boost their own profit margin at the expense of its investors. Ultimately, this theme – of low-cost trading – and of not falling victim to scams that have given the FX industry a bad name, has pervaded company operations and messaging since inception and to-date.

From fun to finance.

TIOmarkets first got the attention of the FX industry on April Fool’s Day 2019, where the company announced a fake range of questionable and unrealistic offerings on a tongue-in-cheek landing page that was realistic enough to look legitimate, however, cheeky enough for those in the know, to understand that it was a joke. It was a stab at traditional brokerages who lure clients in with unrealistic offerings and unfair or disadvantageous financial products. It was a message to seasoned traders that we know what you are going through and that the TIOmarkets experience is the antithesis of this fruitless, over-promotional nonsense. Announcing later that it was an April Fool’s joke, the company thus asserted its position as a no-nonsense / straightforward broker. Trade with us for an honest, authentic trading experience.

Since then, the company has evolved its messaging to cater for newbies as well as experienced traders. And under the guidance of Stefanos Mitsi, has not only greatly strengthened its operational base, but has taken pains to keep any messaging straight to the point and genuine. The positioning is simple – trade in an environment that favours the trader.

FBS

 

FX firsts

TIOmarkets is the first to offer subscription packages. One low monthly fee replaces all ad-hoc costs, fees and commissions. The most favourable subscription package – VIP Black – also offers trade reversal. This offering is understood as ‘the opportunity for traders to change their mind after they have placed the trade’. Since launch, the trade reversal tool TIOshield has been copied by other brokerages, however we maintain our market positioning as one of the lowest cost brokerages available anywhere on the markets. The company even boasted upon launch that it could save its traders hundreds – even thousands – of dollars in fees and commissions, depending on the traders’ trading frequency and volume sizes.

TIOmarkets is the first broker to offer deposits by crypto. Our clients can not only deposit by crypto but they are given access to trade CFDs on crypto, allowing them to benefit from the volatility of various popular crypto instruments. Blockchain and crypto can be characterised with transparency and openness. Everything is visible on the blockchain and it is nigh impossible to fake transactions. While the company does not use blockchain technologies for its FX offerings, this fundamental crypto philosophy pervades TIOmarkets.

As the first broker to publicly display its performance in terms of deposits, partnerships and notional volume, it is not afraid to be held accountable for its progress. Where transparency almost entirely underpins the philosophy of blockchain-based-cryptos, TIOmarkets has inherited the trade.io need to be open and honest about its progress and is ready to face questions from its stakeholders. Members of TIOprime (an evolution of the trade.io Liquidity Pool) have full access to company statistics. They are, after all, investing in the broker. They can use these stats to assess their ongoing participation in the pool which gives them daily payouts according to the performance of TIOmarkets on that day.

FBS

 

We are the first to give daily payments to our clients. We touched upon this in the paragraph above. The better TIOmarkets does, the better our investors do. The company investment scheme – known as TIOprime – has extremely low barriers to entry and allows anybody to participate, provided they front a small initial (and fully withdrawable) investment of 2500 TIOx.

One year after the launch of TIOmarkets, what message would we like to give to FX traders? We would like to let them know that they will not receive better trading conditions anywhere else in the FX industry. The independent reviews on Trustpilot affirm our commitment to provide a high quality, personalised service to our clients, so if our marketing messages don’t tell the full story, the reviews on Trustpilot do. Ultimately, our goal is to grow the company, for our TIOnauts, for our team, for our traders, for our partners. Our story of growth so far leads us to believe that we are well on the way to becoming one of the top forex brokers worldwide. We know that we will reach our goals, and welcome partners and traders to join us on our journey. Now, on our first birthday we have not only proven to the world that we have withstood the test of time, but that we are an FX force to reckon with.

FP Markets celebrates its 15 Year Anniversary

FBS

 

A milestone that confirms FP Markets as one of the most well-established Forex & CFD brokers in the world.

31 May 2020, Sydney - FP Markets celebrates its 15th anniversary today and to coincide with this momentous milestone announces the launch of its new website with a variety of new look features and functionality. Regulated since 2005 by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), FP Markets is a globally-renowned company in the industry and the winner of over 40 awards since it was founded.

FP Markets offers over 10,000 trading instruments offering traders access to CFDs across across Forex, Indices, Commodities, Stocks and Cryptocurrencies, making it one of the largest offerings in the industry and offers 8 platforms including MT4, MT5 & Iress.

Over the past 15 years, FP Markets has learnt that the combination of consistently tight spreads and fast execution, coupled with cutting-edge platforms, a wide product range and first-rate customer support are the key ingredients that give serious traders the confidence to trade.

FP Markets was founded in May 2005 and pioneered the Direct Market Access (DMA) Contracts for Difference (CFD) model in Australia which promotes fair and transparent pricing and focuses on the optimum order execution for clients. FP Markets is still committed to providing DMA pricing for products where a centralized exchange is present For products such as Forex where there is no centralized exchange, FP Markets provides tight Raw Spreads using ECN (Electronic Communication Network) pricing.

Matt Murphie, Managing Director of FP Markets commented: "We are extremely proud to celebrate this momentous milestone which we like to summarise as “15 years of continual innovation”. We were one of the first companies in the world to offer DMA/ECN pricing and we have always ensured that we have stayed at the forefront of technology and innovation. We provide traders with a wide range of products with some of the tightest spreads available anywhere in the world which has led us to become the default choice for many serious traders."

"I am delighted to be leading an extraordinarily talented team and look forward to the next chapter as we continue to expand globally.”

A new website reflecting 15 years of technological innovation and evolution

FP Markets’ strong identity, continuous innovations and investment in technology are reflected in the new-look website which complements the recently launched bespoke client portals.

The re-designed website features a clean design and improved functionalities which offer quick and easy access to information about the wide-range of products on offer. There are new sections on Partners plus the Traders Dashboard showing real-time trading sentiment as well as the new trading information resource - Traders Hub which is packed full of the latest data and analysis.

Our research tells us that they are looking for fast ways to effectively trade within a premium and safe environment, and we believe that the refreshed website ticks those boxes as well as being a landmark to celebrate our 15th year.”


Swissquote vs Goldman Sachs

 

Challenging the code: Swissquote responds to Goldman Sachs’ negative outlook on cryptocurrencies

The outlook report dated May 27th, produced by the Goldman Sachs Consumer and Investment Management Division, portrays Bitcoin (and cryptocurrencies) in a very negative light. The Goldman Sachs outlook is simply very one-sided, unfair to the crypto community as well as being a disservice to the Goldman Sachs investor base, who expects high quality research that can be relied upon to take investment decisions.

Chris Thomas, Head of Digital Assets at Swissquote Bank, responds to each point made by Goldman Sachs:

Goldman Sachs states: ‘Cryptocurrencies Including Bitcoin Are Not an Asset Class’

Chris Thomas responds:

The world is witnessing an emerging asset class being formed, suitable for most institutional participants. The technology is still at an early stage but there are enough good cryptocurrencies to create a segment of a diversified portfolio hence can be reasonably deemed an asset class.

Bitcoin, and select others, are the driving force behind the paradigm shift which is happening. Goldman Sachs is ignoring the strong foundations of this emerging asset class based on cryptographic principles and a world where many, if not all, assets will be tokenised, and trading them will be democratised.

Goldman Sachs states: (Cryptocurrencies) Do Not Dampen Volatility Given Historical Volatility of 76%

Chris Thomas responds:

Yes, volatility is high and that’s absolutely natural for a market in its infancy. This level of volatility is also why investors should never invest a large percentage of their portfolio into crypto-assets.

Goldman Sachs states: On March 12, 2020, the price of Bitcoin fell 37% in one day

Chris Thomas responds:

Absolutely, bitcoin did fall 37% on March 12, 2020. And just one month later, Oil markets plunged 333% in the space of 24 hours, nearly 10x a greater drop, touching a low of MINUS $40 per barrel at one point. In December 2019, Goldman Sachs predicted the average oil price through 2020 would be $63 per barrel.

The Bitcoin slump was a result of a lack of liquidity in the traditional financial markets. It’s important to note that Bitcoin’s price discovery happened in a completely natural way, reflecting the true market supply and demand. The Bitcoin market does not have any centralised ‘limit down’ circuit breakers that prevent such large moves, unlike traditional markets, and hence cannot be “manipulated” to protect investors’ best interests. That 24-hour period through the evening of 11th March into 12 March, the S&P fell (in stages) over 12%.

Goldman Sachs states: We believe that a security whose appreciation is primarily dependent on whether someone else is willing to pay a higher price for it is not a suitable investment for our clients.

Chris Thomas responds:

Surely this is the basis for all investment decisions?

Whilst there are many ways to evaluate each investment class, the ultimate decision to buy (or sell) comes down to whether we believe the price will go higher (lower) and hence whether someone else is willing to pay a higher (lower) price for that investment.

Goldman Sachs states: Cryptocurrency Can Be a Conduit for Illicit Activity

Chris Thomas responds:

Goldman Sachs rightly points out that in the crypto world has had its share of Ponzi schemes, money laundering, ransomware attacks and darknet market functions. However, fiat currencies can also be a conduit for illicit activities.

Banks and enterprises like Swissquote Bank operate to strict AML regulatory levels in both fiat and crypto worlds to prevent such illicit activities. Chainalysis concluded in a January 2020 report that only 0.08% of crypto transactions originate from the darknet markets and collectively criminal activity represented just 1.1% of total activity.

The $2bn Ponzi scheme (in China) that Goldman Sachs refers to is dwarfed by the likes of Bernard Madoff’s $65bn scam. CNBC reported in February 2020 that Ponzi schemes in the fiat world are currently at a ten year high.

Goldman Sachs states: The Cryptocurrency Infrastructure is Still Young and Susceptible to Hacking or Inadvertent Loss

Chris Thomas responds:

The crypto-assets infrastructure is still young and many of the companies Goldman Sachs mentioned in the outlook only have a few years’ experience and may have lacked the solid operational or security processes.

Companies like Swissquote Bank – a fully regulated Swiss bank with strong operational and security processes - do not have such infrastructure security challenges and are able to serve both retail and institutional clients in a compliant way, in both the traditional and the crypto-asset worlds.

Investors have the choice to transact with established financial entities who have a solid understanding of security and operational processes, or to transact on exchanges who may not comply with strong regulatory processes. The crypto infrastructure amongst active financial services participants is operationally strong enough for institutional investors to transact in the same way as with any other asset class. Fidelity Investments are confident enough to build Fidelity Digital Asset Services to serve institutional clients and JP Morgan are confident enough to offer banking services to two of the largest crypto exchanges.

Private keys remain challenging for most of us. That is why it’s easier and safer for most investors to use regulated trading services like Swissquote Bank, where crypto transactions are as easy as transacting any equity or other investment product.

At Swissquote Bank, we believe that crypto-assets form part of the future of the financial markets. We are proactively taking steps to support and develop the crypto community both at retail and institutional level. As the crypto-asset markets mature they will become less volatile and a lot more accessible to a larger audience. The crypto community is full of amazingly talented people, many of whom have left the stale environment of Wall Street banks to help move the (financial) world forward. Swissquote Bank and other regulated counterparts operate successfully in the crypto-asset markets and we hope that Goldman Sachs will join us in due course too.

FBS has added new pharma stocks with intense growth rates

FBS

In the virus-hit global economy, certain market segments have converted into a playground for fierce corporate competition. That is definitely correct for the pharmaceutical sector with the public companies involved in developing the COVID-19 vaccine. Being in the center of investors’ attention, they are gaining value more than other companies are. Those, which succeed with the vaccine, will surely see their stock price fly. FBS offers you to fly with them: below is the list of the recently added pharma stocks - they give you a great opportunity to get extra profits while the rest of the world just starts awakening!

Moderna (MRNA)

Moderna is an American biotechnology company based in Cambridge. While this corporation specializes in transformative medicines based on messenger ribonucleic acid, its stock now specializes in showing an unseen velocity of value growth. Challenging $30 per share when the virus hit, this stock has added more than 100% in value since then. If it grows another 100%, don’t say we didn’t tell you!

FBS

 

Inovio (INO)

Inovio Pharmaceuticals was another promising small-cap biotech stock before the coronavirus pandemic, which traded below $5 per share. Somewhere on the way, it managed to make a leap of 400% up that value - now that you know what it is capable of, grab it while it is at $11!

FBS

Emergent (EBS)

Emergent BioSolutions is an American multinational specialty biopharmaceutical company headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland. It develops vaccines and antibody therapeutics for infectious diseases, opioid overdoses, and provides medical devices for biodefense purposes. After it recovered 100% of its virus losses breaking $67, it went almost straight to the current $84 – a fusion of growth and consistency.

FBS

Pfizer (PFE)

One of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies, Pfizer has been in Dow Jones Industrial Average since 2004. Its stock has been in decline since 2018 and currently trades at $38 after recovering from the drop to $28. Clearly, if it does well with the vaccine, the future may start shining again for Pfizer.

Sanofi (SNY)

Sanofi S.A. is a French multinational pharmaceutical company headquartered in Paris. Sanofi engages in the research, production, and distribution of pharmaceutical products. It was quick to recover almost all its losses and will surely be quick to climb higher if the vaccine is finally developed!

BioNTech (BNTX)

BioNTech SE provides biotechnological solutions. It is headquartered in Mainz, Germany. The Company develops various types of treatments for cancer patients and provides treatment worldwide. Similar to Inovio, it made a vertical leap to +100% of its value and has full potential to repeat it – be there for it!

Novavax (NVAX)

Novavax is an American clinical-stage vaccine company headquartered in Gaithersburg, Maryland with additional facilities in Uppsala, Sweden. The company received an $89mln research grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the development of vaccines for maternal immunization – that is surely not for nothing! Trading currently at $25 per share, it was just 50% of it a month ago – don’t miss out on it!

Gilead (GILD)

Gilead Sciences is an American biopharmaceutical company headquartered in Foster City, California. The company focuses primarily on antiviral drugs used in the treatment of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and influenza, including Harvoni and Sovaldi. While high volatility of this stock needs to be mentioned, so does its potential for a breakthrough if the COVID-19 vaccine is developed successfully.

Synergy Markets Releases Crude Oil Report

FBS

Given the recent unprecedented interest in trading WTI Crude Oil, Synergy Markets have released an in-depth analytical report to educate traders on the 5 key areas they should be aware of before they trade crude oil.

The key considerations the oil report talks about include:

  • The History of Crude oil, and the WTI Contract. In order to understand what it is that’s driving the current market and recent volatility, skilled traders need to properly understand the history of the product, and the parties involved in the search for price discovery.
  • What will happen over the next upcoming futures contract expiry? Should we expect a similar sudden erosion of value due to oversupply?
  • Should traders try and take advantage of extreme market volatility caused by COVID-19 or sit on the side-lines until some kind of market normality is regained?
  • The politics behind the contract, including the supply and demand issues and the technical.
  • And finally, is buying and holding crude at these prices sensible?

In commenting on the release of the report, Head of Synergy Markets, Christian Dove said that the price of oil may fall significantly in the June futures expiry and advised clients to trade cautiously.

“I know many retail customers out there are desperate to benefit from what they see as huge opportunity to trade crude oil at these low prices. However, I advise – if you intend to trade oil, then please do so with great caution. I think we could easily see prices squeezed and more significant drops in to the next futures expiry – followed by a significant rally as demand re-ignites and as the current oversupply is exhausted and the inevitable lag for supply to be turned back on” said Mr Dove in a statement this morning.

Mr Dove further added, “To buy at these levels may risk being closed out on margin if prices drop a relatively small amount - so, if you have to, please trade cautiously and within sensible risk parameters”.

Bloomzed Limited Charity Token Offering – the Future of Digital Charity

FBS

The picture of the world has changed significantly today. The negative impact on the economies of all world countries due to the spread of coronavirus is obvious. All markets have sunk, the exchange rates of traditional assets (the dollar, oil, gold) have fallen, and only the cryptocurrency shows record values over the past few months. This means that digital gold is least affected by global economic crises. On the contrary, many investors are looking for an alternative to traditional assets in such a difficult period. The cryptocurrency effectively acts as such an alternative.

Another equally important aspect of digital assets is their use for charitable purposes. The first to start working with the cryptocurrency market were non-profit and public organizations due to the fact that blockchain technologies expanded the possibilities of raising money for good purposes. Thus, there are no losses in the form of interest for intermediaries, and the amount of donations is delivered very quickly from anywhere in the world. Blockchain technology is more effective and protects against corruption and fraud. People from all over the world can make their contribution easily and quickly by simply using the phone. Cryptocurrency transfers are safe and transparent.

Bloomzed engages the world in the fight against a large-scale disease

Today, the cryptocurrency as a source of charitable funds is still at the beginning of its path of becoming. Not everyone knows about this possibility of providing assistance. Not everyone is ready to donate funds this way, doubting the intended use of funds, which is quite difficult to track in the end. The team of the Bloomzed fintech project, which is developing a large-scale, universal payment tool using cryptocurrency, not only solved this problem, but also introduced a completely new mechanism for carrying out charitable activities.

The thoughts about how to help the world fight the coronavirus pandemic occupied the Bloomzed founders` minds. Long thoughts on this topic led the project team to launch a whole charity movement in support of the entire world community in the fight against coronavirus – “Bloomzed’s High5 Covid -19 Relief Movement”. As part of this movement, Bloomzed has implemented several areas and opportunities to participate in it. So, “Social Challenge” involves people all over the world to participate in the project large-scale action and support their initiative in the fight against COVID-19 with the help of an interactive challenge. “Challenge to Businesses” is aimed at private entrepreneurs and legal entities who are also ready to help in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic by providing various discounts and benefits during this difficult period for the whole world. More information about these Bloomzed initiatives can be found on the project’s official website.

Limited Charity Token Offering – a new digital charity tool

Today, many crypto enthusiasts are just starting their cooperation with global charitable associations. Pursuing good goals, the Bloomzed founders are trying to attract as many people as possible to the problem of fighting COVID-19. Having implemented their charitable movement, namely, having launched its third direction – Limited Charity Token Offering, they thus turned to the large-scale crypto community, which, in turn, will be able to make a significant contribution to solving this world problem.

If we talk about what Limited Charity Token Offering is, then this is a fundamentally new way of performing charitable activities. As part of this initiative, the Bloomzed project creators allocated 2 million BZT tokens for a total of $10 million. The collected funds from the sold coins will be transferred to charity funds for the fight against coronavirus. In essence, this is the first example of implementing a non-charitable token for charitable purposes. Until now, the BZT token was intended to be used within the Bloomzed platform as a key to the MLM loyalty system. Now it has become a unique charity tool.

As for the features of Limited Charity Token Offering, as a new tool for digital charity, its exceptional characteristics include the possibility of receiving benefits from participating in charity. So, within participation in Limited Charity Token Offering:

  • Charitable foundations receive funds from donators.
  • Donator, in turn, receives not only moral and spiritual satisfaction, but also a token that they will later be able to use within the Bloomzed platform, pay for the goods and services of the project’s partners partially or completely, as well as sell the token on one of the exchanges on which it is traded (PROBIT, COINSBIT, LATOKEN, P2PB2, EXRATES, TAGZ).
  • Member companies that provides the opportunity to fully or partially pay for its goods and services using the BZT token, receives a loyal customer, as well as additional global PR in a positive, charitable context.

So, absolutely everyone benefits from participating in Bloomzed Limited Charity Token Offering! But that’s not even the point. By participating in this new charity movement of the Bloomzed project, anyone can join and help in the fight against the global problem, which is the main mission of the project founders. Bloomzed aims to unite the whole world and help a new future come true!


KUAILIAN ACERCA LA TECNOLOGÍA BLOCKCHAIN AL ALCANCE DE TODOS

FBS

Han pasado ya más de 10 años desde el nacimiento de las criptomonedas y desde la publicación del White Paper de Bitcoin, la tecnología blockchain no ha parado de evolucionar. Paralelamente, la forma de trabajar para obtener rendimientos también ha sufrido una drástica evolución. Ha pasado mucho tiempo ya desde que cualquier persona podía generar recompensas a través de un simple ordenador de sobremesa. La aparición de grandes competidores a nivel mundial, sumado a la evolución de la tecnología, ha hecho que ahora las inversiones en blockchain sean sólo atractivas y rentables para los grandes actores del sistema. Es por eso que hoy os presentamos: el ecosistema Kuailian.

FBS

 

Descubriendo Kuailian

Kuailian es una compañía que nos brinda un ecosistema completo de servicios para acceder al mundo de las criptomonedas, además de gestionar herramientas basadas en tecnolog& iacute;a blockchain, lo que permite acceder a cualquier persona, sin necesidad de tener grandes conocimientos y sin tener que afrontar grandes desembolsos para adquirir la tecnología necesaria para ello. Kuailian está legalmente registrada en Estonia, y junto a Suiza, es el país de Europa que más desarrollada tiene la legislación para proteger a los negocios de criptomonedas, tecnología blockchain y a sus usuarios

Características principales de Kuailian

Si tenemos que buscar una característica que defina Kuailian, es muy difícil, ya que disponen de un completo ecosistema dónde cada punto es igual de importante o incluso mejor que el anterior, aunque podríamos afirmar que el principal atributo diferenciador respecto a la competencia es su fuerte apuesta por ser lo más honestos y transparentes posible, todo ello gracias a las herramientas que nos posibilita la tecnología blockchain. Todas las operaciones que se realizan en Kuailian pueden ser consultadas tiempo real. Puedes realizar una auditoría de cuentas por ti mismo, dedicar el tiempo que quieras a rastrear todas esas operaciones (recordemos que los registros de las blockchain son públicos) y asegurarte que las criptomonedas están trabajando y generando resultados. Si lo deseas, también puedes consultar sus registros legales en Estonia, tienes toda la información disponible a través de la web de Kuailian y sus distintas redes sociales.

Kuailian Smart Pool y la tecnología Proof of Stake

No todos los mecanismos de consenso para verificar transacciones son como Bitcoin (Proof of Work), que para trabajar con ella hacen falta grandísimos gastos eléctricos y poderosos equipos que se desactualizan en poco tiempo. Hay otras criptomonedas en las que, para validar operaciones, se debe de estar en posesión de una cantidad predeterminada de la moneda en cuestión (Proof of Stake). Debido a ello, tiene mucho sentido que una empresa que trabaja con esta tecnología y que es conocedora del mercado como Kuailian nos ayude creando grandes bolsas de criptomonedas que den derecho a validar operaciones (y cobrar recompensas por ello). Pero la evolución tecnológica no se detiene (y la evolución de Kuailian tampoco).

Las redes más potentes y modernas usan nuevos protocolos de consenso. Si has escuchado hablar sobre Kuailian ya sabrás que trabajan con Master Nodos, que en resumen son validadores de operaciones de alto rendimiento y uno de sus principales productos, pero a día de hoy en Kuailian soportan diferentes tecnologías de consenso cómo son: PROOF OF STAKE, DELEGATED PROOF OF STAKE, THRESHOLDED PROOF OF STAKE, MASTERNODES, PROFIT SHARE, PROOF OF AGREEMENT, PROOF OF HISTORY, PROOF OF AUTHORITY, TENDERMIT, HIGHWAY, BYZANTINE FAULT TOLERANCE (BFT), NON-BFT, MULTI-BFT, SHARE PRACTICAL BFT, ASYNCHRONOUS BFT - FUTURE CASPER Y OUROBOROS.

Es en este punto dónde se maximiza la capacidad de Kuailian para hacer accesible a la gente de a pie algo que de otra forma… no sería posible. Tanto por el volumen de criptomonedas necesarias, como por los conocimientos necesarios para trabajar con ellas. Así pues, en Kuailian utilizan una estrategia de staking a largo plazo 1000 días y staking simple way (Stake/Unstake), que se incorporará muy pronto a los servicios ofrecidos.

FBS

 

Kuailian y sus automatismos

Kuailian ha hecho accesible a todo el mundo el poder participar de los Master Nodos. Para ello los ha agrupado y fraccionado para que el acceso a los mismos no sea exclusivo para unos pocos. Además, nos ofrecen la posibilidad de poder recibir de forma automática, parte de las recompensas generadas en su Smart Pool.

A continuación, os explicamos cómo es el –sencillo- proceso de entrada a Kuailian.

  1. Crear una cuenta en Kuailian.
  2. Completar el KYC (ya que hablamos de una empresa legalmente registrada en la Unión Europea) y abonar la cuota de inscripción (50.95 dólares pagados en Ether).
  3. Comprar los Kuais que queramos, al precio de 100 dólares cada uno (pagados en Ether). Un Kuai no es un token y tampoco es una criptomoneda, es la unidad de medida de la capacidad de staking de una licencia de explotación del software, durante 1.000 días. Cuantas más licencias, mayores retornos.
  4. Indicar la billetera de Ethereum donde queremos cobrar el reparto diario de los beneficios.

Nos ha parecido muy interesante la forma de organizarse a través de los Kuais. Por una lado, es accesible a todo el mundo debido a su bajo coste, y, por otro lado, permite que las aportaciones de los usuarios se envíen hacia el Smart Pool, el sistema propio que han desarrollado en Kuailian para gestionar de forma automática todas las criptomonedas aportadas por los usuarios que les permiten crear los Master Nodos. Doble propósito, ya que este hecho permite que cada semana se desplieguen nuevos Master Nodos a través de la adquisición de nuevas licencias (ya sea de nuevos usuarios o de los ya existentes).

Las aportaciones de todos los usuarios se gestionan a través de un sistema de Machine Learning, que analiza en profundidad el mercado de las criptomonedas y en base a ello, monta los Master Nodos más rentables y líquidos, es decir, que sus recompensas se puedan intercambiar por Bitcoin y a su vez, a Ether. El sistema va pivotando hacia ellos, lo que permite maximizar la eficiencia global del ecosistema.

Finalmente, nos parece muy interesante destacar que los beneficios generados por nuestra aportación al sistema se reparten a diario. Esto es una gran punto a favor de Kuailian, ya que normalmente estamos acostumbrados a soportar interfaces muy pesadas que nos exigen cifras mínimas para poder hacer una retirada, pueden tardar varios días incluso semanas hasta que procesan los pagos o incluso dependemos de una autorización… ¡para disponer de nuestro dinero! Kuailian, en su apuesta clara por la transparencia, ofrece a sus usuarios una herramienta propia programada por su equipo técnico, un Smart Contract de Dispersión desarrollado sobre la blockchain de Ethereum, el cual envía diariamente y sin posibilidad de engaños ni errores, los beneficios entre los usuarios (de hecho, este el contrato puede ser revisado en cualquier explorador de la blockchain de Ethereum).

Extra: Tanto el Smart Pool como Kuailian Bank y el resto de los servicios que ofrece la compañía, tiene sujeto un sistema de afiliación, por el cual cada referido que se convierta en usuario de Kuailian, generará ganancias para el que fue su anfitrión.

Kuailian Bank y las próximas innovaciones

En Kuailian tienen muy claro que el futuro es blockchain, y apuestan decididamente a ello un ecosistema completo. Han cerrado diferentes acuerdos para prestar servicios financieros. Hoy en día ya se pueden depositar monedas “FIAT” e intercambiarlas por criptomonedas. En un futuro cercano se añadirá un wallet y una tarjeta de débito, además de datáfonos digitales entre otros servicios financieros que les permitirán ampliar su oferta de servicios. Por otro lado, el Smart Pool también se ampliará y desarrollará nuevas opciones, como el trading de alta frecuencia (HFT) y los sistemas de arbitraje; todo ello mediante el mismo sistema de inteligencia artificial que gestiona todo el ecosistema. 

Un ecosistema en constante expansión

Pero Kuailian no es solo un ecosistema financiero, sin duda, va mucho más allá, al igual que lo hace la tecnología blockchain. El principal objetivo de Kuailian es acercar recursos de mercado existentes basados en la tecnología blockchain, para hacerlos más eficientes, más transparentes y con una experiencia de usuario nunca vista hasta el momento. Muy pronto se añadirá al ecosistema Kuailian Travel, el primer servicio que quedará fuera del sector “financiero” de la compañía, y que abrirá la puerta a la llegada de nuevos recursos de mercado que harán que la compañía se convierta en todo un referente en el mundo blockchain.

Conclusión

Si estás buscando una compañía que te haga más accesible y cercana tu entrada en el mundo de blockchain y las criptomonedas… Kuailian es tu mejor aliado.

FBS held a charity event to provide health supplies in Indonesia

Over the past few months, the entire world has been suffering from the coronavirus pandemic. In most countries, borders are closed, people are in self-isolation. Indonesia is not an exception; the situation in the country is difficult.

Common people are in lack of masks and gloves they can use for self-protection. Even when the goods become available, the price is so high that people cannot afford to buy them. The hospitals face a shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment) as well. It is especially critical for paramedics who are exposed to CoViD-19 every day. As a result, dozens of doctors are dead; hundreds of medical staff are infected.

FBS couldn’t stay indifferent and held a charity event in April. The company distributed masks, liquid sanitizers, gloves, and other protective equipment to the hospitals in West Java: Soreang Hospital, Pratama Clinic, and Santo Borromeus Hospital in Bandung, Bayu Karta Hospital in Karawang, Public Health Center in Tasikmalaya.

Besides, the FBS team gave away free masks to people in need and disinfected the streets in the Kiaracondong subdistrict of Bandung. The company hopes that these actions may help to flatten the curve of CoViD-19 and prevent its spread.

The main aim of this charity event is to help needy people and health workers who fight for the lives of the Indonesian people. The company will go on investing in similar projects in the region. FBS plans to provide PPE to hospitals, clinics, and public health centers in other cities in Java.

Help, compassion, and hope are the things people in Indonesia need right now. Together with on-sight organizations, FBS will contribute to the overall wellbeing in the underprivileged districts and help to protect as many citizens as possible.

Volatile market does either scare or attract traders. To get into the second group and take advantage of all the opportunities brought by assents swinging, you just have to know what trading instruments to use at such a moment and choose a suitable trading platform. For example, in the FBS Trader app it is convenient to track price changes for various trading instruments, such as:

1.USD

Obviously, the US dollar is the most promising currency now to profit from. Despite the efforts of the Federal Reserve to provide ample levels of dollar liquidity to the market, the USD remains strong versus its peers and traders and investors still prefer it as a safe haven. Keep a close eye on EUR/USD as it tests resistance. Don’t forget to consider GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, and USD/CAD for trading as well.

2.Oil

The oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, together with coronavirus, has made oil prices collapse. During the past weekend, however, the world’s top oil producers pulled off a historic deal to cut global petroleum output by 9.7 million barrels a day. So far, the move hasn’t led to a big recovery in the market. The main problem is that the demand is too weak because of lockdowns all over the world. There are reasons to believe that oil will remain under pressure. The advance above $36 a barrel for Brent is needed to open the way up to $40 and $45.

3.Gold

It’s just the right time to profit from the intraday moves of the gold’s price. The precious will surely retain its value in the medium term – so will you have a great chance to benefit from trading XAU/USD! Don’t forget to use stop loss and take profit orders, which FBS Trader provides. They always help if something goes wrong.

4.Exotic pairs

More promising currency pairs? Enjoy! The exotic pair USD/TRY continues to strengthen daily and this is a great opportunity to buy/sell it in the FBS Trader application profitable. USD/MXN is making impressive swings. Thus, you better watch these pairs out!

5.Crosses

USD is not the only currency drawing trader’s attention. As JPY is a refuge currency, it will tend to strengthen during the period of market uncertainty. Consider trading in FBS Trader app such cross currency pairs as EUR/JPY, AUD/JPY, GBP/JPY, and EUR/GBP as well. And don’t worry about the safety of your account because in the app, there is a user verification with an additional password. You can be sure that your account secure in any situation.

Sounds lovely, but always remember – the first instrument in every trader’s toolkit is wisdom! Keep calm, analyze, and only then – go ahead!


Alexium joins forces with bedding industry leader Soft-Tex

We all know that a good night’s sleep in vital to good health and one factor that has a major impact on sleep quality is your temperature. While science is yet to discover a definitive causation between body temperature and sleep, the sleep cycle is typically initiated when our core body temperatures drop.

Professor Michael Decker, Ph.D., of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine says that “as we sleep, our body acclimates to the temperature. If we lower our body temperature a little bit in a cooler room, we tend to sleep better”.

Improved sleep quality from cooler bedding, not to mention comfort, is a factor that consumers are increasingly valuing.

To help deliver bedding cooling technology, and ultimately a better night’s sleep, ASX-listed technology company, Alexium International Group Limited (ASX: AJX) has joined forces with industry leading bedding product manufacturer Soft-Tex International.

Alexium is a South Carolina, USA based specialty chemicals innovator focused on high-performance, environmentally friendly, phase change materials (PCM) and non-hazardous flame retardants (FR). Its PCM technology has wide ranging applications, and while these are at various stages of commercialisation, the company’s major customers and revenue generators are bedding manufacturers.

Soft-Tex, which manufactures and distributes premium specialty sleep products, has maintained its prominent market position for no less than three decades by constantly incorporating the latest sleep technologies in building the most comfortable products.

Under the agreement, Soft-Tex will exclusively purchase Alexicool® phase change material (PCM) products for bedding systems that are based on Soft-Tex’s Reactex® technology — a technology that stores and releases heat to provide overnight cooling or heating, activated by pressure.

The innovation partnership combines the technical and commercial strengths of both companies and provides AJX with a channel to some of the world’s most recognisable retailers, such as Bed Bath & Beyond, Amazon, J.C. Penney and Dillard’s.

The supply agreement and innovation partnership with Soft-Tex marks the completion of a key milestone for Alexium’s commercialisation of its “total mattress cooling systems”.

Alexium’s Alexicool® cooling products will provide the cooling engine for Soft-Tex’s Reactex™ technology, which manages bedding system heat flow to provide a comfortable sleep environment.

This two-year initial agreement is a major step for Alexium in the commercialisation of its “total mattress cooling systems” and its development of phase change materials (PCM) for the thermoregulation of materials.

Widely recognised as the industry leader, Soft-Tex International manufactures and distributes some of the finest specialty sleep products available. Its Reactex® technologies span the personal climate control, wellness, antimicrobials, and other categories.

Soft-Tex’s Reactex™ technologies controls heat energy flow and storage to create a customer’s unique ideal personal bedding climate.

The technologies involve an additive technology formulated to control heat energy flow and storage and function much like a battery — storing and releasing heat to provide overnight cooling or heating through pressure activation.

Commenting on the signing of this agreement, chief executive Bob Brookins said, “Alexium is excited to be taking this step forward with Soft-Tex as we are pleased to provide products and services based on our advanced materials sciences capabilities.”

Alexium Chief Commercial Officer, Allen Reihman highlighted the complementary nature of the two companies technologies in saying, “This agreement formalizes the innovation partnership between Soft-tex and Alexium, combining the technology and market strengths of both companies.

‘’Reactex™ technology controls heat energy flow and storage to create a customer’s unique ideal personal bedding climate.

‘’Our Alexicool® products uniquely meet Soft-Tex requirements and provide the cooling engine for Reactex™ technology”.

Soft-Tex’s Chief Innovation Officer, Mark Smiderle added, “We chose Alexium as an innovation partner because they provide advanced PCM products, technical support, and analytical expertise that enable Reactex™ technology’s thermal regulation advantages.”

Serta Simmons Bedding – Soft-Tex Partnership

Soft-Tex International last month entered into an exclusive partnership with privately-owned Serta Simmons Bedding to add new technologies to SSB’s mattress lines.

The relationship establishes Soft-Tex’s role as an “innovation partner,” providing sourcing, supply chain management and marketing services to SSB that are tied to the new technologies.

The multi-faceted partnership will support SSB research and development teams and be integral to the delivery of next-generation mattress products.

Soft-Tex intends to be a long-term innovation partner for SSB, providing them a strong competitive advantage in the mattress marketplace and creating products that offer real solutions to solve customer needs.

Leveraging its “robust intellectual property” Soft-Tex will provide SSB access to new products developed using more than 100 of its patents in the mattress category. Its innovation teams have begun working directly with SSB on the integration of those technologies for use in upcoming SSB product launches.

SSB and Soft-Tex expect to launch mattress lines featuring Soft-Tex-supplied technology for shipment in the fall of 2020.

15 million traders choose FBS!

In March 2020, the number of clients of the Forex company FBS exceeded the mark of 15 million. It is an essential event for the broker. With Wanchalerm Champan (Thailand), FBS hit this significant number.

The lucky trader lives in Thailand and works at Fasco, the company that produces motors for export. He is a QA engineer who enjoys what he is doing. He is the one responsible for quality-check and a mediator between customers and manufacturers. This job is stable and regularly-paid, but he is seeking more.

Being an ambitious person by nature, Wanchalerm Champan is always searching for additional sources of income. So, one day he saw an ad online that brought him to fbs.com.

He knew absolutely nothing about Forex but heard a lot about a new era of investments and opportunities that financial markets can offer. He was surfing the web, and from the list of the top online brokers, he chose FBS. Then he did not suspect that he would become a 15 million client.

Now Wanchalerm Champan is a newbie in the trading world. He consciously approaches his new beginning, so before starting to trade, he decided to expand his knowledge, figure out the details, and prepare. FBS will help him to learn all about trading. Fortunately, the "Analitics&Education" on fbs.com provides abundant information about Forex, including webinars, video lessons, tips for traders, a guidebook, and a blog with the articles that explain complicated notions in simple language.

Dreams Come True project

Fulfilling somebody's dreams – what can be better? Only fulfilling those that make not only that person happier, but the others as well. FBS Broker fancies this ideology a lot and launches “Dreams come true” promotion every month. The principle is simple - people share their wishes, and FBS brings the most inspiring ones among them to life. In January, it was Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan from Indonesia who asked for a little miracle - and it happened!

Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan lives with his beloved wife in South Kalimantan. After getting married, he was carrying wood on a riverboat together with his father-in-law. Some time later, earning money by such a way was no longer possible – a serious leg injury was an obstacle for intense physical activity.

FBS has come to his life at the right time. This is how Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan describes the circumstances of making FBS’s acquaintance: “In the midst of my confusion to earn money for my family, there was a friend from Jakarta who suggested me to open an account in FBS Broker and he taught me how to trade. After I fully understood, I decided to open a real account. Thank god, I can earn money from trading. I am so grateful”.

Recently, FBS 's involvement in Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan’s life has become even more significant. After having a stroke in 2018, his father has been unable to move. Even after getting limited in the walking ability himself, Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan was wishing to give his dad a wheelchair. Accidentally, he saw the Facebook post about Dreams Come True promo and shared his dream with us.

This generous appeal was heard. FBS Indonesia's team came to his house and brought a modern wheelchair for his dad. The reaction was truly priceless: “Thank you very much FBS for making my dream come true. Our family is very grateful because, with this wheelchair, my father can do his activities again outside”.

Looking at the whole family smiling, at the farther of our character feeling so comfortable and relaxed, and especially at the excited winner of the promotion himself, it becomes clear – for such people as Mr. Muhammad Andriyawan, peace of mind and happiness depend on those of the closest ones.

This is just one example of lovely wishes people share while participating in Dreams Come True promo. Usually, it is quite hard to pick one wish out of the huge variety, but gradually all of them will be fulfilled. For FBS, such stories are the source of endless motivation to go further and help people to make the world better.

FBS is an international broker with over 190 countries of presence and more than 14 000 000 clients. It is famous for regular, diverse and advantageous contests and promotions that are highly appreciated by the global trading community. Besides, the broker offers a number of special services to make trading easier and more beneficial, such as swap-free and VPS services, cashback up to $15 per lot, and more. An official trading partner of FC Barcelona from January 2020.

MinRex Resources is Actively Exploring Just a Few Kilometers from $1.1 BN Silver Lake Resources

Gold explorer MinRex Resources (ASX: MRR), which holds ground just a few kilometres to the north-east of the $1.2 billion capped Silver Lake Resources Ltd’s (ASX: SLR) gold and copper Deflector Mine, is set to release new exploration results at its Deflector Extended Gold Project at Gullewa in Western Australia.

MinRex currently holds five projects, four of which are located in the East Pilbara region. The East Pilbara 70%-owned projects consist of Bamboo Creek Gold Project, Marble Bar North Gold Project, Marble Bar South Gold Project and the Daltons Gold Project.

The Deflector Extended Gold project is 100% owned by the ASX micro-cap and lies to the north-east of Silver Lake Resources’ Deflector Mine and also the gold producing Golden Stream open-cut mine.

Gullewa is a known gold producing region.

Gold was discovered at Gullewa as far back as 1894, with historic production occurring in the region from 1897 to 1942. During this period a reported total of 36,000 ounces of gold was produced from a total of 24,000 tonnes of ore at an overall recovered grade of 46.3 g/t gold.

Modern mining commenced in 1994 and by 2003 the processing of 530,000 resulted in the production of some 39,000 ounces of gold.

Mining re-commenced in 2016 with the opening of the Deflector Mine, as an underground copper-gold operation, with production to date estimated at about 110,000 ounces of gold, greater than the previous historic production.

Current gold price a bonus

With the Australian dollar gold price hovering in the vicinity of $2,600 per ounce (as the AUD remains weak), the new results couldn’t come at a better time for MinRex.

The price of gold relative to the Australian dollar (currently 61 cents), also highlights the value in speculative gold stocks.

In this case the $1 million capped MinRex, could benefit as gold continues to rally on the back of coronavirus-led uncertainty.

Assay results due in April

MinRex’s pending results follow the completion of a detailed geological evaluation and sampling program, which are set to build on encouraging results previously obtained within the project area.

During this latest field sampling program, a total of 144 rock samples and 131 soil samples (a total of 275 samples), were collected from throughout the licence area – but principally in the scree covered area immediately to the north of the Cagacaroon Hills containing the principal anomalous areas.

MinRex has now collected a total of 744 surface rock samples at the Deflector Extended Gold Project, 725 soil samples and 185 auger drill samples, which have defined significant anomalous zones for further examination and sampling.

There have also been prior programs of RAB drilling, aircore drilling and soil sampling by earlier explorers of the area with these results supporting the definition of the identified anomalous zones.

The assay results for the 275 samples collected in the current exploration program are expected in mid to late April 2020 and will be released, along with locational data, maps and plans, as soon as possible after their receipt.

The next phase of field work at the Deflector Extended Gold Project will again concentrate on the defined anomalous zones, but also include some further reconnaissance work elsewhere in the exploration licence.

It is probable that this work will be completed during the winter field season of 2020, suggesting a high rate of news flow throughout the year.

MinRex to ramp up Pilbara exploration

MinRex is preparing for an active field season throughout all its East Pilbara Gold Project areas.

The company will consider completing detailed airborne and surface geophysical programs over all five of the East Pilbara mineral tenements with the aim of generating exploration targets and delineating more prospective terrains that may be present within the mineral licences.

Quotes have been received for completing close spaced airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys and ground surveys at the two smaller Marble Bar licences, covering MinRex’s five East Pilbara mineral licences.

Further rock sampling, soil sampling in colluvium and soil covered areas and detailed geological mapping will also be used to better understand these complex gold, base metal and poly-metallic mineralised systems at the Daltons, Marble Bar and Bamboo Creek Gold Project areas.

This 2020 field work will collect numerous rock and soil samples, and include air photo analysis and geological mapping, along with the geophysics programs.

This work will aim to build on the results received from the previous six exploration programs that MinRex has completed in the area within the past two years.

It is planned to commence this work as soon as possible after the current summer hot and wet season in the East Pilbara and will factor in the successful completion of the current capital raising program that MinRex now has underway.


Creso Pharma hires former Canopy Growth executives

Creso Pharma Limited (ASX:CPH) has appointed two former Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED, NYSE:CGC) executives to the senior management team of its wholly-owned Mernova Medical Inc. in Nova Scotia, Canada.

The pair are former employees of Canopy Growth Corp, the world’s largest cannabis company by market capitalisation, currently capped at C$6.8 billion, having once hit the heights of C$24 billion.

Mr Jack Yu has been appointed as managing director and brings expert-level knowledge of cannabis cultivation and production from 25 years of practical experience growing cannabis, including nine years of consulting for licensed Canadian medicinal cannabis growers.

Mr Yu’s experience includes working for Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED, NYSE:CGC), the world’s largest cannabis company by market cap in the position of Production Manager.

He also held the role of Interim Cultivation Manager for Canopy’s Newfoundland, Edmonton, Eastern Canada and Scarborough facilities, and previously held the position of Master Grower for MedReleaf Corp., which is now owned by Aurora Cannabis Inc (TSE:ACB).

Furthermore, he consulted for Health Canada license applicants throughout the process to attain licenses for cultivation, production and sales of medicinal cannabis in Canada.

As Managing Director, Mr Yu will replace outgoing Managing Director Mr Bill Fleming, and will be responsible for managing all operations at Mernova and will work closely with the Creso Pharma Board.

Isaac Allen has been appointed Vice President.

Mr Allen has significant expertise in optimising business operations from executive positions in industries spanning cannabis, insurance, technology and entertainment.

He was formerly National Operations Process Improvement Manager at Canopy, where he developed and executed a number of business strategies and efficiency initiatives.

He is also the founder and former chief executive of a disruptive insurance technology start-up and has held senior executive positions at various companies.

Mernova close to achieving European Union GMP certification.

Mernova continues to work towards securing European Union Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification.

Once this certification is obtained, Creso Pharma will be able to begin sales of high-quality cannabis flower and oil into the established and growing consumer markets in countries such as Germany and Switzerland.

Mernova is also continuing to ramp up production and sales in North America, with its latest deal closing last week at a value of approximately C$410,000.

The sale was comprised of varying quantities of four strains of Mernova’s high-quality cannabis flower, and Creso Pharma has received the full purchase amount from the buyer.

For the full year 2019, Mernova’s revenues were AU860,000 (C$761,000), highlighting that the recent sale represented more than 60% of full-year revenues in 2019, making for an excellent start to the year.

The facility is scaling up to full production capacity which Creso Pharma expects it to achieve this year.

Highlighting the diversified experience the new executive appointments bring to Creso Pharma, chief executive Miri Halperin Wernli said, “We are looking forward to Mr Yu and Mr Allen joining the leadership team at Mernova.

‘’Both of them bring practical experience from a variety of fields, not only limited to the cannabis industry.

‘‘We believe that they will be invaluable to Mernova and Creso Pharma as we continue to ramp up production and sales.’

Mernova vice president Isaac Allen said. “Mernova is emerging to be a promising supplier of premium quality flower and oil to customers across the globe, and a compelling opportunity for investors looking to gain exposure to a first-class cannabis production facility. ‘’I am confident that I will be able to help Mernova further optimise its business operations as it moves closer to obtaining its EU GMP certification.”

Mernova Managing Director Jack Yu also pointed to his relevant attributes in terms of gaining European Union certification in saying, “I am excited to be taking Mernova forward as it looks to scale up its production capacity this year.

Alaskan focused oil and gas group, 88 Energy Ltd provided a further update

Alaskan focused oil and gas group, 88 Energy Ltd (ASX:88E) provided a further update on Monday regarding the progress of the group’s Charlie-1 appraisal well on the North Slope of Alaska.

With the rig mobilised and drilling to start this weekend there is the potential for near-term market moving news.

88 Energy has the support of Premier Oil Plc which sees the company fully carried up to US$23 million while still maintaining a 30% working interest.

Charlie-1 will test multiple stacked targets in the March quarter assessed at 480 million barrels net to 88E.

This will see the group step-out to Malguk-1, an historic discovery well drilled by BP in 1991.

Consequently, the group is in highly prospective territory with total conventional potential resources currently mapped at the broader Icewine project in excess of 1 billion barrels net to 88E.

As a measure, Oil Search (ASX:OSH) acquired territory in late 2017 indicated above at a price which implied a 2C resource of US$3.10 per barrel.

Alaska has become a hot spot for major oil and gas players targeting large long life resources, and if 88E can demonstrate through drilling at Charlie-1 that early stage estimates are potentially achievable, the company is likely to receive significant share price support.

Management could realise financial gain at early stage

Investors will be keen to get a feel for 88E’s likely strategy if Charlie-1 meets expectations. Managing Director Dave Wall has signalled in the past that the sale process for the asset — on success — will start pretty much straight away.

It is important to note that 88E is not aiming to undertake a capital intensive operation in bringing an oil field into production, as it is a nimble explorer that sticks to its strengths.

It prides itself on taking ground floor economically viable entry positions in very early stage assets, proving up value, then offloading them to a larger oil company to take it to the next stage of commercialisation, which takes years.

Today, 88 Energy outlined its strategy which involves fast tracking resource delineation to enable monetisation.

88 Energy has 30% of the Project Icewine conventional asset. It has a large enough exposure to attract a interest from the industry for a sale process, and keeping up with funding requirements should be minimally dilutive to existing shareholders.

Success will result in a horizontal well being drilled from the Charlie-1 vertical well bore in 2021, as well as potentially a step out delineation well.

Charlie-1’s attributes

In order to gain an appreciation of the potential imminent upside for 88E it is important to understand the Charlie-1 target.

88 Energy along with its farm-in partner Premier Oil (LON: PMO) is targeting 1.6 billion barrels of gross mean prospective oil resource potential, of which 480 million barrels of oil is net to 88E.

Comprised of no less than seven stacked targets in the new Brookian play, the Charlie-1 opportunity is derisked by 88E through reinterpretation of nearby well results and acquisition of modern 3D seismic.

The seven targets have been identified using the same modern technology used to make the most recent Brookian discoveries. Four are interpreted as oil bearing in Malguk‐1 and are therefore considered appraisal targets. Each of these targets could be a potential standalone development in its own right.

High tech drilling methods to give 88E an edge

The upcoming drilling involves a state of the art subsurface evaluation program that was specifically designed to evaluate formations that may have laminations resulting in low resistivity pay, present formations with low to moderate permeability and potentially contain formations with considerable bound water.

The drilling program will utilise the latest proven technology, as prior to advent of specialist tools, the above challenges often resulted in pay being left behind.

As a backdrop, Premier Oil’s funding of the appraisal well up to a total of US$23 million is in exchange for a 60% working interest in a 40% portion of Project Icewine’s conventional acreage in ‘Area A’ (the Western Play Fairway).

88E retains a 30% holding and 10% is held by its JV partner, Burgundy Xploration.

60 days to 1.6 billion barrels?

Now with the drill rig mobilised to site, drilling is set to begin this weekend. Drilling will reach a planned total depth of approximately 11,400 metres and the total program is estimated to take approximately 60 days to complete.

Early results will be known in just weeks from spud with full results expected in April.


Football star Tim Cahill announces partnership with ACY Securities

Australia’s soccer legend and former English Premier League star, Tim Cahill today announced his partnership with ACY Securities, a leading ASIC-regulated multi-asset broker based in Sydney. 

Tim Cahill enters the partnership with ACY Securities as their Global Brand Ambassador and official trading partner for a period of 2 years. 

Mr Cahill said he was excited to represent ACY Securities on the world stage and that he respected the integrity and vision of the company’s co-founders, Jimmy Ye and Winson Cao.

“I’m excited for what’s coming. Sitting with Winson and Jimmy and talking about how we can do more in this sector - and when they talk, they talk about how they’re going to help people, how they’re going to give back, their due diligence in producing excellence. And that’s what I like” said the former Everton star and Australia’s number 1 ranked goal scorer. 

Justin Pooni, Head of Branding & Communications at ACY Securities and the person who spearheaded the partnership said that the alignment between ACY Securities and Tim Cahill is working beautifully due to strong synergies between Tim Cahill and ACY Securities as a brand. 

“Tim Cahill is an Australian sports legend who is loved and admired not only by Australians, but by millions of fans around the world. Having played in the EPL, in the US, in China and even in India - Tim is a true international football icon and we are absolutely thrilled to have him as our global brand ambassador” said Justin Pooni in a statement today. 

Mr Pooni continued to say;

“We have received extremely positive feedback about the partnership from our clients, partners and the general public and I think the reason for that is there are strong synergies between Tim and ACY Securities that are resonating well”. 

Justin Pooni concluded, “Tim values trust, integrity, pushing yourself to achieve your goals and helping people improve their lives - and these are very much the same things that our co-founders Jimmy Ye and Winson Cao stand for and what the ACY Securities brand represents”. 

On 10th of February, it was also announced that Tim Cahill has been named as an official ambassador for Road to 2022 – joining a star cast of footballing legends including Xavi, Samuel Eto'o, and Cafu to help promote the delivery of the 2022 World Cup. 


Vulcan makes zero carbon transportation possible

A global shift in capital allocations is underway. Trillions of dollars are flowing into sustainable or green investments, as the, ‘environmental, social and governance’ (ESG) sector shakes off its image as simply a feel-good investment class.

New evidence demonstrates that profitability and environmental footprint are not mutually exclusive — but that ESG performance does in fact correlate with good financial results.

Corporate boards are cleaning up their operations and supply chains to be carbon neutral and environmentally friendly, while global fund managers are allocating to climate and eco-friendly companies, and increasingly refusing to back coal and fossil fuels.

In fact, the world’s largest fund manager, BlackRock — which manages nearly US$7 trillion in assets — is reengineering its investment strategy. According to BlackRock CEO and chairman Larry Fink, this shift is on the basis that climate change “has become a defining factor in companies’ long-term prospects”.

Last year 180 of America’s most powerful CEOs – as members of the Business Roundtable lobbying group – declared that corporations have a responsibility to the environment. Not only are these business leaders combating climate change, but it is a savvy, financially motivated move.

Bill Gates’ new fund, Breakthrough Energy Ventures, along with big name investors Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, and Michael Bloomberg is investing in start-ups that are each capable of cutting emissions by 500-million tonnes annually and has attracted.

It was just announced overnight that Breakthrough has invested in a similarly themed low carbon lithium technology. The original co-founder of this rich-list backed, low-carbon lithium tech has recently joined Vulcan Energy Resources as CTO of lithium extraction.

Dual ASX and Frankfurt listed Vulcan Energy is capitalising on one of the biggest trends in this space: the widespread roll out of electric vehicles.

A major component of electric vehicle batteries is lithium hydroxide, however traditional lithium recovery methods are incredibly environmentally damaging — extracting brines via evaporation ponds or open-pit mining of hard-rock lithium sources have a large carbon footprint.

Driven by changing consumer attitudes along with government legislations, electric vehicles are set to massively displace CO2 intensive internal combustion engine vehicles.

The European Union wants all greenhouse gas emission cut to net zero by 2050, and stresses that “Europe needs to accelerate the transition towards low- and zero-emission vehicles”.

This shift has been spectacularly demonstrated in the recent ascent of Tesla’s share price that has added US$70 billion to its market value in less than two months.

One issue facing Tesla going forward, and all major auto makers for that matter, is securing enough EV batteries, while battery makers themselves— the likes of LG Chem and CATL — struggle to secure adequate supply of battery quality lithium hydroxide.

But fulfilling supply, alone, is not enough. The next step in this evolution is the greening of the EV supply chain. Currently, while EVs are much greener to run, their manufacture generates significantly more CO2 emissions than that of traditional vehicles.

Located at the heart of Europe’s electric vehicle and battery industry in Germany, Vulcan Energy has a solution.

The company has a globally significant lithium resource — the largest in Europe — that, with its unique Zero Carbon Lithium™ direct lithium extraction process from geothermal brines, is perfectly positioned to deliver carbon neutral (or even carbon-negative) lithium to the supply chains of Europe’s rapidly growing battery electric vehicle industry. 

The dual lithium hydroxide and renewables project will derive primary revenue from selling battery-quality lithium hydroxide (LiOH∙H2O) chemicals into the European market and secondary revenue from renewable geothermal power generation.

The Vulcan Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project comprises a very large, lithium-rich geothermal brine field located in Germany’s Upper Rhine Valley, just 60 kilometres from Stuttgart — the home of the German auto-industry and the centre of the burgeoning European lithium-ion supply chain.

The project is trucking distance to cathode manufacturers and EV battery “gigafactories” and is large enough to be Europe’s primary source of battery-quality lithium hydroxide.

Vulcan today released its scoping study indicating the potential for its Vulcan’s Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project to be the first negative carbon lithium project in the world, helping to decarbonise what is known to be a highly CO2-intensive product.

The study demonstrates the potential for a combined operation producing lithium hydroxide and renewable energy, all with a net zero carbon footprint.

Vulcan is planning for a staged ramp-up, with Stage 1 comprising the construction and operation of a Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) and lithium hydroxide plant at the existing Insheim geothermal plant.

Stage 2 would later add considerably larger capacity, with the drilling of ten new production geothermal wells across two plants, construction of a new combined geothermal, DLE and lithium hydroxide plant at Vulcan’s 100%-owned Ortenau license.

The Next Small Cap estimate that the project could“be bringing in US$350 million yearly at Stage 2, which would start to stack up quickly over its 30+ year project life.”

After emerging from a trading and announcing the findings of the scoping study announcement, the stock hit 30 cents on the ASX, after previously closing at $0.255.


Pursuit Minerals pursues European nickel targets to meet growing battery metal demand

By 2025, 500,000 tonnes of refined nickel will be used annually in lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles (EVs).

This equates to a five-fold increase from the amount of nickel used in EVs in 2018.

Seeking to capitalise on Europe’s rapidly expanding battery production capacity for both energy storage and use in electric vehicles, Pursuit Minerals is taking steps to supply European battery manufacturers with the critical metals to expand the region’s battery production capacity and battery deployment..

Pursuit expands European nickel exploration

Pursuit listed on the ASX in August 2017 following the acquisition of a portfolio of projects from Teck Australia Pty Ltd, which remains the company’s largest shareholder.

Its project portfolio is focused on Battery Metals nickel and vanadium. In 2018, the company was granted exploration tenements in Sweden and Finland, covering projects with historical deposits of vanadium and extensive confirmed areas of vanadium mineralisation.

In February 2020, Pursuit expanded its portfolio through an Option agreement, with the ability to purchase 100% interests in the Espedalen, Sigdal and Hosanger projects in Norway.

Eurasian Minerals Sweden AB, a wholly owned subsidiary of EMX ROYALTY CORPORATION, currently owns these three advanced nickel sulphide projects.

The projects comprise 20,000 hectares of exploration licenses and are located in three separate historic mining districts that were identified through EMX's regional generative programs and acquired in 2018.

Pursuit is required to pay US$25,000 cash, issue 20 million shares and incur exploration expenditure of US$250,000 in 12 months to become entitled to exercise the option to acquire 100% of the projects.

Pursuit chairman, Peter Wall explained “The transaction structure that has been negotiated is relatively non-dilutive to existing shareholders, with only a very modest number of shares being issued upfront. This was an important factor in proceeding with the transaction in order to preserve and maximise shareholder value.”.

Why Norway?

Norway led the world in nickel production during the 1870s and was producing 75% of the world’s nickel by the turn of the century with over 40 nickel mines in production. More recently, the Bruvann Ni-Cu-Co mine, with 6.8Mt ore, operated between 1989-2002.

Glencore currently operate the Nikkelverk nickel refinery at Kristiansand in southern Norway, which has been refining nickel concentrate and exporting nickel products since 1910.

These mines were generally on the smaller to medium scale, however there is certainly potential here for much larger scale operations supported by modern mining knowledge and techniques.

Interestingly, the southern Norway location of Pursuit’s projects is geologically analogous to one of the world’s largest nickel mines: Voisey’s Bay nickel deposit in Labrador, Canada contains 141Mt nickel at 1.6%.

This shared geological history could point to Norway having a larger deposit lurking beneath the surface — possibly even of the scale of Voisey’s Bay.

In any case, there’s significant opportunity to progress Norway’s smaller to medium sized deposits towards commercial production.

Focused exploration.

Pursuit’s immediate focus is on the Espedalen Project, where it will:

  • Assess the potential to expand the high-grade core of the Stormyra Inferred Mineral Resource.
  • Test a number of the targets of >5m @ >1% Ni.
  • Assess the potential to define a maiden inferred mineral resource from the existing drill holes at the Megrund prospect.

     

  • Over the coming 12 months, the $2 million capped Pursuit will rapidly move to define and test nickel drill targets with the goal of expanding the known nickel deposits and discover new nickel systems and potentially boosting its market value.

    With a limited number of quality nickel sulphide projects available worldwide, Pursuit is now just one of a handful of ASX listed companies with interests in an advanced nickel portfolio.

    This is important, as there are few opportunities on the ASX to invest in companies with high quality nickel projects — particularly those with existing nickel JORC resources.

    Backed by an experienced management team, having demonstrated its ability to quickly progress projects in Scandinavia, there’s a lot of potential to explore here — particularly for the ASX junior currently priced at just 0.6 cent per share price and with a sub-$2 million market capitalisation.

    Additionally, protecting Pursuit on the downside is Pursuit’s option to acquire these projects at a really attractive price and with minimal dilution to existing shareholders.

    The company is fully funded to complete these exploration programs this year.


    HYCM Releases ETFs on Their MT5 Platform

    Well established global forex broker, HYCM, has launched exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on their MT5 platform*. In addition to forex, stocks, indices, cryptocurrencies**, and commodities, HYCM now also offers 20 different ETFs including the top 3 traded ETFs: SPDR S&P 500, iShares Russell 2000 Index, and VelocityShares 3x Inverse Crude Oil ETN.

    An ETF is a basket of assets such as stocks, commodities, bonds and other securities that can be traded during the trading hours. ETFs can be bought or sold through brokerage firms and generally operate with an arbitrage mechanism designed to keep the ETF as close to its net asset value as possible.

    Giles Coghlan, HYCM’s Chief Currency Analyst, explains why more traders are becoming interested in ETFs:

    ” One of the key benefits of an ETF is that it allows our investors to diversify their portfolios. As ETFs hold a basket of stocks or securities, they are also an ideal way of investing in market sectors. For example, say market conditions are looking good for banks, you could use an ETF to invest in the financial sector as a whole rather than take a chance on an individual bank stock. It is not hard to see why ETF’s have grown in popularity year on year since their inception in 1993. They are now attracting over US$5 trillion per year. By investing in a sector via an ETF, the ups and downs of individual stocks are reduced, portfolios are diversified, and volatility can be reduced.”

    In this era of high volatility including recent news cycles concerning coronavirus, Brexit, and US-Iran tensions, traders are looking for less volatile instruments, making ETFs very desirable. Not only are ETFs less volatile than stocks, but they also incur lower operating costs and fewer broker commissions than buying each stock individually would. Traders can choose between existing ETFs that focus on a variety of targeted industries knowing that they tend to have a more innovative and faster response to trends.

    HYCM is one of the few brokers that offer ETFs. This new asset class comes with excellent trading conditions including competitive spreads, leverages up to 1:20, and different account types to suit all trading styles. HYCM is a reliable and trusted broker with over 40 years of group experience.

    Roots ag-tech solution could help alleviate malnutrition

    There is little doubt, fluctuating temperatures and inconsistent rainfall is having a negative impact on crop growth and that stunted crop growth has geographical, social, political and economic ramifications.

    To put this into perspective, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) one in nine people, or 821 million people are now considered to be suffering from hunger.

    Further erosion of crop development could increase that number exponentially.

    The question that arises from this crisis is: how is it mitigated?

    A report on world hunger delivered collectively by the heads of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), the World Food Programme (WFP) and WHO states: “If we are to achieve a world without hunger and malnutrition in all its forms by 2030, it is imperative that we accelerate and scale up actions to strengthen the resilience and adaptive capacity of food systems and people’s livelihoods in response to climate variability and extremes.”

    Technology is playing an important role in helping to alleviate hunger and malnutrition issues. Specifically, ag-tech is starting to play a major role in increasing crop yields and combating water shortages.

    Roots Sustainable Agricultural Technologies Ltd is developing a unique technology that is having a positive impact.

    Known as Root Zone Temperature Optimization Technology (RZTO), Roots’ disruptive, modular, cutting-edge technology is addressing critical problems being faced by agriculture today, including plant climate management and the shortage of water for irrigation.

    Roots has developed proprietary know-how and patents to optimise performance, lower installation costs, and reduce energy consumption to bring maximum benefit to farmers through their two-in-one root zone heating and cooling technology and off the grid irrigation by condensation technology.

    RZTO optimises plant physiology for increased growth, productivity and quality by stabilising the plant’s root zone temperature. Using either sophisticated heat pumps and/or Ground Source Heat Exchange (GSHE) coils the Technology stabilises root zone temperature year round, by either heating or cooling the roots as needed. Heated (or cooled) water is pumped in a closed cycle through the pipes installed in the root zone, where the heat (or cold) is discharged.

    This significantly increases yields and provides flexibility of growing cycle planting options, improves quality, mitigates extreme heat and cold stress on plants, and reduces disease load.

    The technology is beginning to gain traction.

    Fake meat market looks to ag-tech solutions

    Producers of fake meat products are looking for sustainable ways to grow their products. Roots solution fits the bill.

    Recent results from a first stage Proof of Concept (POC) study being conducted on the effects of its patented RZTO technology on protein-based model plants are highly encouraging.

    The roots of two protein-based model peas and beans plants were cooled by deploying RZTO.

    Results show 57% to 67% more pods yield per plant for both the peas and beans when compared with uncooled plants. While protein percentage was slightly affected, total pods protein content increased by 77% and 55% in peas and beans respectively in cooled plants, when compared to uncooled plants.

    The POC demonstrates that RZTO use results in weight increase per plant and more pods being generated per plant.

    The protocol of the POC conducted at Roots’ facility was organic and used no fertilizer or other chemicals and Roots believes that this initiative will be of particular interest to the plant-based meat industry.

    Roots co-founder and director Dr. Sharon Devir highlighted the positive implications saying, ‘’The results may support our hypothesis that by cooling roots using RZTO, the plant will increase the total pods yield and therefore increase protein content.”

    Roots taking on global agricultural market

    There is a significant market opportunity for Roots in Canada, which is actively promoting new agricultural innovations through the C$3 billion ‘Canadian Agricultural Partnerships’ innovation program.

    Roots has signed a non-binding exclusive agreement with Water Ways Technologies, which specialises in providing water irrigation equipment solutions to farmers around the world.

    Under the agreement, Water Ways have the right to import and sell RZTO technology in Canada, thereby capitalising on Water Ways’ established market presence.

    Roots also entered the Italian market via a 12-month Letter of Intent (LOI) signed in October with leading Italian ag-tech producer and nursery Cairo & Doutcher.

    Under the LOI, Roots installed its hybrid ground source heat exchange system combined with a heat pump to improve crop quality and increase yields for herbs and flowers at Cairo & Doutcher’s growing facilities in Southern Italy.

    So pleased with the results was Cairo & Doutcher, that the Italian producer this week signed an exclusive binding agreement to sell a minimum of five RZTO systems during 2020. To maintain exclusivity in relation to selling the RZTO system Cairo & Doutcher must build up sales of the RZTO system over a three year period, with incremental growth expected each year.

    Over the course of the following three years, Cairo Doutcher has also agreed to increase sales of the RZTO systems by 100% per year from €500,000 during 2021, to €1 million in 2022 and €2 million (A$3.2 million) in 2023.

    Italy is a versatile market with great potential for Roots’ RZTO technology and if rolled out successfully this ag-tech junior could become a prime player in Europe’s production of all things fruit and vegetable, whilst helping to alleviate the social implications of climate change on crop growth.

    88 Energy just weeks out from drilling 1.6B barrel Alaskan oil target

    Dual listed junior oil explorer 88 Energy Limited is just weeks away from spudding its Charlie-1 appraisal well at Project Icewine on the North Slope of Alaska

    The drilling event at Charlie-1, which is on track for a late February spud, will see 88 Energy — along with its farm-in partner Premier Oil (LON:PMO), target 1.6 billion barrels of gross mean prospective oil resource, of which 480MMBO is net to 88E.

    The drilling event will intersect seven stacked prospects and could see Charlie-1 emerge as one of the world’s biggest oil wells of the year.

    While it has a long history of successful oil discoveries, Alaska’s North Slope is now seeing renewed industry interest as new technology and exploration incentives have made the commercialisation of once stranded resources possible..

    Recent North Slope discoveries include the two largest conventional oil discoveries onshore North America in over 40 years: ConocoPhillips’ Willow and Oil Search’s Pikka discoveries.

    These oil discoveries have been made in a new play called the Brookian Sequence, where massive amounts of oil — over 4.0 billion barrels — have been discovered over the last six years.

    These discoveries demonstrate the commercial viability of a previously speculative stratigraphic play type with vast unexplored potential.

    Here are some of those discoveries in the Brookian play, alongside 88E’s Project Icewine:

    88 Energy now has all permits required for drilling in hand, with the Permit to Drill approved on 11 February.

    The ice road to the Charlie-1 location is more than 80% complete and is expected to be completed in the next two weeks, while ice pad construction is due to commence shortly.

    88 Energy executed a rig contract, via its 100% owned subsidiary Accumulate Energy Alaska Inc, with Nordic-Callista Services to utilise Rig#3 for the upcoming drilling.

    Mobilisation of the Nordic Rig#3 to site is anticipated to begin in approximately 10 days.

    Charlie-1 Ice Road Progress Map

    Managing Director of 88 Energy, Dave Wall, said “Excellent progress has been made on the ice road construction, despite extremely cold temperatures. All permits are now in hand ahead of the scheduled spud in late February.”

    Charlie-1 appraisal well: targeting 1,600MBOE gross prospective resource

    Comprised of no less than seven stacked targets in the new Brookian play, the Charlie-1 opportunity is derisked by 88E through reinterpretation of nearby well results and acquisition of modern 3D seismic.

    The appraisal well has been designed as a step out appraisal of a well drilled in 1991 by BP Exploration (Alaska) Inc called Malguk-1.

    Malguk-1 encountered oil shows that showed promise, but due to complications towards the end of operations BP ran out of time before the winter drilling season ended and the well was not tested. Plus, it was drilled using only vintage 2D seismic, which was insufficient to adequately determine the extent of any of the prospective targets encountered.

    88 Energy subsequently undertook revised petrophysical analysis, which identified what is interpreted as bypassed pay in the Malguk-1 well. 88E also completed acquisition of modern 3D seismic in 2018, in order to determine the extent of the discovered oil accumulations.

    Charlie-1 will intersect seven stacked prospects, four of which are interpreted as oil bearing in Malguk1 and are therefore considered appraisal targets.

    Charlie-1: Seven Stacked Horizons

    These seven stacked targets that will be intersected have all been identified using the same modern technology used to make the recent large Brookian discoveries and each of these targets could be a potential standalone development in its own right.

    Funding sorted for Charlie-1 well.

    88 Energy will operate Charlie-1 via its 100% owned subsidiary Accumulate Energy Alaska Inc, with cost of the well to be funded by Premier Oil Plc (LON: PMO) up to US$23 million under a farm-out agreement that was executed in August 2019.

    Premier Oil is a £850 million (A$1.6B) capped oil company with 80,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in production. It will fund the appraisal well up to a total of US$23 million in exchange for 60% Working Interest (WI) in a circa 40% portion of Project Icewine’s conventional acreage in ‘Area A’, the Western Play Fairway.

    To further fund its operations, on 24 January, 88 Energy completed a share placement, raising A$5 million (£2.6M) at a price of A$0.021 (equivalent to £0.011).

    88 Energy intends to use the funds from the placement to fund potential costs of the Charlie-1 well above the Premier Oil carry, and fund lease rental payments, interest payments due on the debt facility, new ventures opportunities, and finance ongoing working capital and general and administrative overheads.

    The optimism and momentum in heading towards the spud of Charlie-1 has seen the company share price more than double to a much as 2.6 cents off its October low of 1.2 cents. The imminent spud of Charlie-1 could prove to be a major catalyst as investors lock onto the potential of Charlie-1 well and 88E’s larger Project Icewine.

    ACY Securities steps in to prevent the spread of coronavirus

    ACY Securities is pleased to announce that it held a special community service initiative yesterday where it gave away free protective face masks to help protect the community from the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

    The masks that ACY Securities was able to source and giveaway were the highly sought after P2/N95 rated respirators – which are difficult to buy in Sydney due to the shortage of supply caused by high demand.

    Justin Pooni, Head of Branding & Communications commented on the mask giveaway initiative, saying the day was very successful, saw lots of smiling faces and drew a lot of support from the community.

    “In light of the World Health Organisation officially declaring the coronavirus an international health emergency, our director and co-founder, Jimmy Ye felt the need to do something for the community. We knew that the good respirators were hard to find so we sourced 1500 ourselves and gave them away yesterday in the space of just 2 hours. There were lots of smiling faces, lots of encouragement and lots of support and goodwill around the giveaway so it was certainly something that was very positively received”.

    ACY Securities has a strong track record of giving back to the community – their last contribution to the community was a cash donation to the Salvation Army for the Australian Bushfire Disaster Appeal.


    Highlights Of FBS And FC Barcelona Partnership Agreement Signing Ceremony

    On January 17, representatives of FC Barcelona and FBS met at the Camp Nou stadium for the official part of their four-year partnership commitment.

    The Broker and the Club are officially together now. Here are some snaps from one memorable day in Barcelona.

    The first handshakes and greetings happened right at the doorstep, at the Barça office welcome area. FBS CMO and other representatives met Barca officials, including the Club’s legend & ambassador Juliano Belletti who did three seasons at Barça and immortalized his name in 2006 when he scored the winning goal at the Champions League final in Paris.

    The next stop was the Barça Store Camp Nou, a 2,000 m² paradise for Barça enthusiasts, which the guests from FBS left with every fan’s most-wanted merch - a customized jersey. After visiting the Barça Museum, the crowd proceeded to Llotja President Suñol to participate in a private event where the new partnership was officialized.

    The official signing ceremony was held with the participation of Mr. Josep Pont, the member of the FC Barcelona Board of Directors responsible for the Commercial Area. During the official statement, Mr. Pont emphasized the importance of alliances with international players.

    “We are pleased to announce this new partnership with FBS, a leading brand in the Forex sector. It is an agreement that will help us to continue growing and advancing with such a unique project as FC Barcelona and to consolidate our expansion strategy on a global level, to continue setting standards not only for our style of play, which is so recognized around the world, but also in the fields of partnerships and sports marketing.”

    In their turn, FBS representatives mentioned that partnership with FC Barcelona was a long-cherished project, and now when the deal is sealed, the company promises to get the best out of this agreement and launch many interesting offers for both traders and fans.

    Once the papers were signed and speeches made, the new partners proceeded to the place of power - the pitch - for a photoshoot. Starting a business in such a magical place feels like a good sign - just think of how many glorious moments happened on this field and how many football superstars were raised there. Definitely gets the goosebumps going.

    Hopefully, a new partnership deal between the international broker and the legendary club will be another beginning of something great.

    FBS is a broker with an international outlook that serves clients in Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the MENA. Its main focus lies in offering financial products for currency, precious metals, CFD, and stock trading for clients with different goals and backgrounds.

    FBS sponsored a party for poor children in Butuan City, the Philippines

    FBS works miracles on a monthly basis. During the Dreams Come True promo, the company asks its Facebook followers to share a dream and chooses the most meaningful one to fulfill it later. In November, it was a man from the Philippines whose wish was to feed and make gifts to the poor children of his neighborhood.

    The winner’s name is Michael Ponce Sanchez, he is an on-call waiter in Butuan City, and he loves children very much. “Every time I see poor children in the streets, it breaks my heart. I wish I could help them all,” he said when FBS asked him why he decided to do a children event instead of doing something for himself. One doesn’t meet such sensitive and noble people very often these days.

    FBS transferred money to Mr. Sanchez so that he could buy little presents and food for the little ones who live nearby. His family agreed to help him organize everything, and soon after, over 80 kids were laughing and playing at a block party hosted by Michael. The most memorable highlights of the event included epic children dance challenge and fun games ran by the host, who is clearly great with kids and knows how to spread the party vibes.

    The winner confessed he’s a beginner trader doing his first steps with the Demo account. When he dared to try his luck in the Dreams Come True contest, he didn’t expect much. However, a miracle happened and probably kick-started a lucky period in his life - both personal and financial.

    #FBS2020: FBS Gives Away Lucky Gift Boxes In A New Year Promo

    As many companies out there, FBS broker finishes off its year with a New Year promotion for its clients. At the end of 2019, they are offered to create a fancy Thank You e-card for their loved ones and get a gift box full of nice surprises.

    #FBS2020 contest starts off on December 9 and will continue till January 7. Over this period, the clients are supposed to write a Thank You message for their friends, family members, or anyone who played an important role to them in 2019. 

    The idea is simple: New Year’s Eve is the time to make conclusions, analyze the past 365 days, and make plans for the future. The people that you have around you are your biggest influence - so, there’s no better way to wave the old year goodbye than thinking about those who’ve made it special and taught you valuable life lessons. 

    The company created 19 New Year Thank You cards, greeting and thanking the clients for different things. The last greeting #20 is supposed to be written by the clients and addressed to whoever inspired them the most in 2019. 

    To get in, the clients need to visit the #FBS2020 promo page and create a Thank You e-card using the colorful templates and hashtag #FBS2020. After that, the participants should post the card on their Facebook page and send the link to the post. The promo is free of charge but requires you to follow the FBS official page on Facebook. 

    FBS team will choose the winners on January 10 by selecting 15 most inspirational and interesting messages. Each winner will get a special FBS gift box that contains a bunch of nice surprises:

    • Wireless flowerpot speakers (yes, it’s a flowerpot that plays music)
    • FBS T-shirt
    • Lucky teddy bear
    • Bag
    • Branded notebook & pen

    There are no rules or restrictions when it comes to the Thank You messages.

The e-card can be written in any language and be of any length - just as wordy as necessary to express your feelings in a way that feels right. 

    Oftentimes, people concentrate on analyzing mistakes and failures and leaving all the bad things behind, but it’s also a good idea to think about those whom you want to take with you to 2020. Sharing gratitude before the New Year is not just a good old tradition but also a way to get you off on the right foot in the upcoming year!

With this product, investors have an easy and cost-efficient access to the Bitcoin market with highly secure, best-in-class custody and a robust physically-backed ETP structure. Furthermore, with this collaboration we are expanding our market leadership in the institutional crypto business.”

    Alexis Marinof, Head of Europe of Wisdom Tree, added: “The WisdomTree Bitcoin ETP provides investors with a simple, secure, physically backed and cost-efficient way to gain exposure to Bitcoin while being traded and settled through traditional financial infrastructure. The WisdomTree Bitcoin ETP taps into WisdomTree’s tradition of innovation and leverages WisdomTree’s deep expertise in physically-backed ETPs. We are pleased to partner with Swissquote as a custodian charged with the safekeeping of the digital assets backing WisdomTree’s ETP.

    BNP Paribas becomes a new issuer on Swiss DOTS

    Swissquote Bank AG continues to expand on the Swiss DOTS OTC trading platform. The new issuer, BNP Paribas, will add approximately 10,000 leveraged products. This will complement the existing offering from the two founding partners, UBS and Goldman Sachs, as well as from Commerzbank and Vontobel. By contrast, Deutsche Bank will discontinue its Swiss DOTS offering at the end of the year.

    Founded in May 2012 by Swissquote, together with UBS and Goldman Sachs, the Swiss DOTS OTC trading platform is again being strengthened. As an additional issuer of leveraged products in Switzerland, BNP Paribas will join the group of partners on Swiss DOTS. From the end of November 2019, around 10,000 leveraged products including warrants, knock-out warrants, factor certificates and mini futures, will be tradeable on a number of underlyings such as international and Swiss equities, currency pairs, indices and even precious metals.

    Deutsche Bank will discontinue its activities as issuer on Swiss DOTS as from 31 December 2019. The reason is a strategic decision by management to realign the Bank's activities.

    Swissquote clients and PostFinance e-trading clients are already using Swiss DOTS to trade more than 90,000 leveraged products over the counter. Available on the Swissquote platform, these products can be traded directly with the issuer during extended trading hours, Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 22:00. With attractive terms, transparent trading and narrow spreads, Swiss DOTS is the ideal addition to the existing offering from the SIX Structured Products Exchange

    Swiss DOTS is posting steady growth and on average approximately 27,000 transactions are performed via the platform each month. Market share, in terms of all transactions with leveraged securities in Switzerland, is currently around 50%.

This includes running away from an angry boss and annoying colleagues, dressing up like a hotshot trader, and take quizzes while exploring FX opportunities in a nice and playful way. 

    Who’s Pete, and what’s going on?

    When we meet Pete for the first time, he is a regular office worker. He’s bored, short of money, and craves for vacation. He craves a brand new lifestyle actually, but he doesn’t know that yet. 

    The storyline evolves as Pete takes up challenges and discovers Forex trading as an alternative way of moneymaking. The more he learns, the closer you get to the prize - a trip of your dream and 5-star hotel accommodation for the winner and his/her travel buddy. 

    Each completed task brings the participant a certain amount of points called “pips” (a commonly used trading term meaning the smallest price move). There are 7 tasks in total featuring different types of activities: the dress-up, The Office Escape motion game, the quiz, and more. The entire thing comes cost-free; plus, the player can stop the game whenever necessary and go back to the tasks anytime later. 

    How to enter the game?

    Now, it’s time to delve into the technicalities. To become a participant, one needs to do the following: 

    • Register for the quest from October 28 till November 28
    • Complete the tasks and collect a total of 100+ pips 
    • Participate in the raffle drawing 

    Actually, one doesn’t need to take all 7 tasks. Once you get over 100 pips, the quest will finish, the tasks will close, and the participant will be automatically added to the shortlist. 

    The winner will be announced during the live raffle drawing on December 5 at 14:00 MT time on the official FBS Facebook page.

    How to get the prize?

    So, the main prize is a trip to one of the world’s most beautiful cities: London, Tokyo, or Dubai. The winner will be able to choose the destination to their liking and discuss the dates of the trip so they could have enough time for paperwork (if needed). 

    The company will pay for two economy class tickets (round trip) and 5-star hotel accommodation. FBS representatives may assist the winner with visa documents in certain cases, but the overall paperwork is on the winner. 

    The good news is that it’s not even necessary to be a real-life trader to win the game, which means anyone can end up on a trip from FBS. All you need to do is enter the game! 

    FBS is an international broker with over 190 countries of presence and more than 13 000 000 clients. It is famous for regular, diverse, and advantageous contests and promotions that are highly appreciated by the global trading community. Besides, the broker offers a number of specialized services to make trading more comfortable and beneficial, such as swap-free and VPS services, cashback up to $7 per lot, and more.

    BTC Surf expands its exclusive offer for its community

    Forex Race Demo Trading Contest

    If you have been in the world of cryptocurrencies for a long time, you should have experienced the evolution of the business models. In the initial phase, there were many business models linked to advertising.

    The already known "faucets", and the PTCs (Paid To Click) were a viable way of acquiring small portions of cryptocurrencies to go deep into this world. Then multiple problems arrived and only the best projects have survived.

    And today we introduce you one of those projects that have adapted and improved over time to continue having a place in the saturated world of internet advertising: BTC Surf.

    What is BTC Surf?

    BTC Surf is a community, developed by the professionals of the Spanish Blockchain Association. Anyone can register for free and enjoy various benefits (depending on the type of membership).

    Depending on the activity in the community you can earn Bitcoins, you can earn traffic for your web portal or meet new portals and investment opportunities.

    Advertise forever

    Members can advertise with a single payment and enjoy the service for a lifetime. In this way, the advertiser will be able to receive traffic from real users throughout his life and thus increase his yields.

    Those users who do not wish to advertise can also earn while they see ads from the partners that are advertised, and also know quality alternatives that are being promoted by the other members of the community.

    Other sources of benefits: The Affiliate System

    Apart from the normal activity of the community, it can also be earned by recommending the platform to other users, with which we will subsequently earn a percentage of the profits that are generated later thanks to that user. The BTC surf affiliate network is up to 11 levels deep (for the highest memberships).

    Clarity with financials

    The distribution of money generated by the community is a clear system designed with transparency to guarantee confidence in the system.

    The distribution is as follows:

    • • 50% - Membership plan distributed in 11 levels.
    • • 20% - External Surfing Promotion for all advertisers, generating visits from other traffic sources.
    • • 10% - Weekly Bonus.
    • • 10% - Random bonus per activity.
    • • 10% - Management and maintenance of BTCSURF systems

    The newest: The pool

    The latest and most innovative service that BTC Surf partners offer us is the “pool”. When we talk about pool we do not mention what we all know as a mining pool. A pool, in general, is a group of people (or companies) that come together to offer a service or take advantage of a business opportunity.

    In this case, the Pool offered by BTC Surf is intended to exploit the affiliate network market. With the contributions of the members of the community, the affiliate networks of top quality portals within the Bitcoin universe and cryptocurrencies are exploited.

    Next, let us show the chart of profitability of the pool.

    Forex Race Demo Trading Contest

    As can be seen in the above graph, profitability ranges between 0.20% and 1% of daily gain. Which is a fairly profitable investment if we consider the tremendous competition in the internet advertising market.

    In addition, the pool evolves as the community decides since they will make investments in the portals that the members themselves decide: a tool for the community!

    Conclusion

    BTC Surf is a mature, profitable community that continues to innovate to offer profitable services for its community, as evidenced by the recent launch of its commission POOL.

    Why You Really Need An Updated FBS CopyTrade Version With Stop-Loss and Take-Profit

    Forex Race Demo Trading Contest

    FBS broker released an updated version of the CopyTrade app, and you’d absolutely love it if you are a social trading enthusiast looking for a safer copy-trading experience. The latest release is all about adding the Stop-Loss and Take-profit features known as the best risk management tools on Forex. Here’s why it’s great news.

    2 steps to the radically better risk management

    FBS CopyTrade is a social trading app where people copy pro trader’s performance.

    On the one hand, it brings along better profit opportunities because you copy the best professionals in the community and profit whenever they do.

    On the other hand, it still involves certain risk management concerns. The updated version of the app allows the users to place Stop-loss and Take-profit and safeguard their investments in a much, much better way:

    Forex Race Demo Trading Contest

    1. Total control of your investments’ profitability.

    Unarguably, SL and TP are crucial for effective profit\loss management. The Stop-loss feature allows you never to lose more money than you are ready to lose in accordance with your trading strategy. With the Take-profit option on, the app will automatically stop the process so you could get your profit exactly when the moment is right.

    Graphically, these two options look like two little switchers in the app - all you need to do is decide whether or not you need any of them right now.

    2. Applicable for both new and existing orders.

    This feature is a revolution of your opportunities since it allows placing SL and TP anytime you find it necessary. These features give you a superpower of a timely control over your trades if the situation in the market requires action. The app displays a full track record of your actions so you could follow the progress and make smarter trading decisions. In other words, SL and TP are your safety bag that gives you a much more relaxed trading experience.

    Full automation on guard of your investments

    For your convenience, the app sends push notifications every time the SL or TP features are triggered, letting you know that the investment was automatically closed. In overall, FBS CopyTrade liberates you from tracking your trades manually - no need to check on your app every now and then and worrying about losing too much or missing a good opportunity.

    FBS CopyTrade users need to update the application to start using these features. The app is free and doesn’t imply any hidden fees - the only fee you have to pay is a fixed Trader commission of 5%. The updated version powers up your risk management and carefully watches the market movements, which is definitely a thing to delegate to the machine.

    FBS is an international broker with more than 13 million clients from over 190 countries. The company is famous for a number of smart mobile trading tools allowing people to trade on the go and make money on Forex with any level of experience.

    Besides, the broker offers several services that are highly appreciated by the global trading community, such as swap-free and VPS services, cashback up to $7 per lot, and more.


    OKEx Launches Initiative to Develop Global Compliance Standards for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

    OKEx to engage exchanges and market participants to develop a Global Self-Regulated Organization (SRO) aimed at standardizing practices and policies

    DELTA SUMMIT -- MALTA -- OCTOBER 3, 2019 -- OKEx (www.okex.com), one of the world’s largest spot and futures digital asset exchanges, today announced an initiative to create a Self-Regulated Organization (SRO) aimed at standardizing exchange practices and policies. Similar to the World Federation of Stock Exchanges, FINRA in the United States, and the World Economic Forum, OKEx is engaging exchanges and market participants in the global crypto-trading community to become members of this initiative.

    “Cryptocurrencies are global and decentralized, and the industry remains nascent, thus regulations by jurisdiction are not enough,” said Andy Cheung, Head of Operations for OKEx. “The only way for exchanges to grow and deliver impact is by joining together to develop practices and policies that will set a global standard and adapt to regional regulatory frameworks.”

    Exchanges must clarify their operational practices and procedures in order to best cooperate with governments and encourage innovation in this sector. OKEx invites other exchanges to join the company in establishing standards for market-making, listings, delistings of digital assets, and other items critical to the growth of the entire industry. Crypto exchanges share a common goal to protect investors and traders, and to foster innovation in the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Together, exchanges can more effectively set standards to usher in financial security for millions of people.

    “While other organizations have introduced initiatives to elevate standards for crypto exchanges, most are focused on one jurisdiction. We applaud their efforts and OKEx will determine which ones are important to our customers. Our initiative is focused on creating a global SRO that can provide international standards,” said Enzo Villani, Head of International Strategy and Innovation at OKEx. “We are in discussions with other exchanges and market participants to join us in formalizing a global SRO.”

    Headquartered in Malta, OKEx is a top-tier digital asset exchange offering more than 400 token and futures trading pairs to millions of customers in 150+ countries. OKEx offers the most diverse trading products in the market, ranging from spot trading, fiat- to-token trading, margin trading, and crypto derivatives. The company also helps traders, miners, and institutional investors optimize their investment strategies.

    9th September 2019

    Sydney, Australia

    ACY Securities is pleased to announce the appointment of Ashley Jessen, who has almost 20 years’ experience in the financial markets, as their new Head of Marketing.

    In driving the marketing function at ACY Securities, Jessen will be in charge of developing the digital marketing strategy, implementing performance-based marketing campaigns and identifying market opportunities.

    Previously, Jessen was CEO of Profile Booster, where he helped some of Australia’s largest Forex brokers drive business and position them for growth. He has also served as Director of Communications at Invast Financial Services, Director of LCG Markets in Australia and wrote the book ‘CFDs Made Simple’.

    ACY Securities Co-director Jimmy Ye said the company had reached an exciting point and leveraging Ashley’s deep industry experience and expertise would propel the company forward.

    “ACY Securities is at an exciting point, and we wanted to secure Ashley’s depth of experience in the financial services industry, to leverage the opportunities both locally and internationally, to help move our company forward." said Mr Ye in a statement this morning.  

    In commenting on his appointment, Jessen focused on ACY Securities’ strong background in technology and identified it as a key advantage.

    Face Care Novelty for a Spa Owner

    FBS

    FBS is not only about trading. Our mission is to promote success to people even if they are not yet FBS clients. We stand for courageous, active, progressive individuals around the world. FBS supports those who are ready to develop, improve their finances and lives of people who surround them, and, what is more important, speak about their dreams.

    In July Ha Tuyet, the winner of the Dreams Come True contest, was a role model of this behavior. She owns a small spa in the Buon Ho town in the Dak Lak province of Vietnam. For quite a while she has wished to get a HIFU machine that uses ultrasound for a non-invasive facelift, brow lifting or cellulite treatment. The technology is popular among cosmetologists and has proved to be efficient for stimulating the production of skin collagen and elastin.

    “I wanted to buy the HIFU, but never had extra funds for it. Imagine my surprise when FBS sent this novelty to my spa!” – She confessed. What we loved about Ha Tuyet and her dream is her desire to be innovative and move her small business forward. FBS appreciates her concern about the clients, desire to improve her skills and provide better service. We do hope that our gift will motivate Ha Tuyet for bold ideas and inspire her to have faith in what she is doing and can do even better!

    Our winner has never traded and found a contest on Facebook because she heard about FBS from her friends. She applied for her long-cherished wish and got what she deserved! Besides, she created an account with FBS to earn extras for her spa. Having additional income is crucial for small businesses because, at first, the majority of funds is spent on daily needs. With extra money at hand, Ha Tuyet will have a chance to invest in business development and make a long-term strategy. We believe that she can become a successful entrepreneur and grow her company.

    As a beginner trader, she would want to go through a substantial knowledge base of analytical and educational materials FBS provides, read about useful tips for traders, visit weekly webinars. She can start from a demo account to learn to deal with the trades and understand the financial market patterns. Once she is more familiar with the tools, it may be a good idea to activate the FBS Trade 100 Bonus or deposit to a cent account. The latter allows getting real profit yet minimize risks.

    FBS is an international broker who stands by its words. With more than 13 million clients globally working with over 190 countries, it is famous for regular, diverse, and advantageous contests and promotions that are highly appreciated by the global trading community. Besides, the broker offers several services that help to make trading accessible and beneficial, such as swap-free and VPS services, cashback up to $7 per lot, and more.

    ITTA President, Robert Lee said the event was a success and thanked ACY Securities for supporting the tournament.

    “The tournament was a massive hit and I would like to thank ACY Securities for supporting ITTA as a major sponsor. Without ACY Securities, the event would not have been the success that it was. The reps from ACY Securities even attended the event on the day and personally presented the medals, trophies and cheques to the winners and that is something we greatly appreciate” said Mr Lee this afternoon.

    ITTA is a not-for-profit student-run organisation with the aim of promoting the sport of table tennis across Australia and beyond.

    Robo-Advisor: automated asset management now also includes cryptocurrencies and real estate

    As early as 2010, Swissquote, Switzerland’s leading online bank, launched its Robo-Advisor – the first Swiss automated asset manager. It provides the ideal solution for anyone who wants complete control over their wealth management without having to permanently keep an eye on the markets. Swissquote has now expanded the range of products in its Robo-Advisory solution to include two further investment categories: cryptocurrencies and real estate.

    New investment possibilities: cryptocurrencies and real estate The Robo-Advisor invests in multi-asset strategies. Alongside shares, fixed-income instruments and commodities, it is now also possible to invest in cryptocurrencies and real estate. This allows Swissquote customers to further diversify their digital investment portfolio, meaning they can match their portfolio to their personal risk appetite more effectively.

    “Since Swissquote was the first bank to introduce trading with Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Litecoin and Ripple in as early as 2017, it is a logical step to expand the Robo-Advisor to include this investment category,” explained Jan De Schepper, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “The balanced portfolios built by the Robo-Advisor are ideal for investors who are interested in cryptocurrencies but do not want to put all their eggs in the same basket. Certain requirements, such as a specific minimum risk level or minimum portfolio value, have to be fulfilled in order to add cryptocurrencies as an investment class,” continued De Schepper.

    The new real estate category includes ETFs and investment funds that focus on real estate, either directly or via listed companies active in the sector. This option also allows a preferred geographical location to be selected.

    Bespoke investment portfolio The Robo-Advisor creates a bespoke investment portfolio for customers, and monitors and optimises it around the clock to maintain the desired risk level. The intuitive platform enables customers to select default adjustments or to configure their own investment preferences. As a result, the algorithm is dynamic in determining optimal asset allocation based on market conditions.

    Pioneer in digital wealth management Swissquote launched its Robo-Advisory solution in 2010, making it the first electronic wealth manager in Switzerland. In doing so, Swissquote became a pioneer in the digital wealth management sector. The Robo-Advisor is based on the same algorithms as the Swissquote Quant Fund, which received the Lipper Fund Award in 2016 for having the best performance over three years. Swissquote developed the user-friendly platform in order to make this innovative technology accessible to everyone.

    Swissquote posts record client assets and improves pre-tax profit forecast to CHF 48 million

    Swissquote reported net revenues of CHF 112.2 million for the first half of 2019, equaling the high figure posted in the same period of the previous year. In line with expectations, pre-tax profit of CHF 25.1 million was lower year-on-year. On the strength of a net new money inflow of CHF 3.4 billion and a solid market performance, client assets exceeded the CHF 30 billion mark for the first time. For the year as a whole, Swissquote continues to project growth in net revenues of 5 to 10 percent. Key strategic projects Internaxx and Singapore showed encouraging results. The pre-tax profit forecast for 2019 of CHF 44 million made in March has been revised to CHF 48 million.

    Strategic expansion yielding successes

    In the first half of 2019, Swissquote achieved two major milestones in terms of implementing its long-term growth strategy: On the one hand, following finalization of the acquisition of Internaxx Bank, this Luxembourg-based bank was fully integrated into the Swissquote Group on 22 March. The Internaxx figures were consolidated into the Swissquote figures effective 23 March. Over a period of just over three months, Internaxx contributed CHF 3.5 million to the result (CHF 1.3 million in net fee & commission income, CHF 1.8 million in net interest income and CHF 0.4 million in net trading income). On the other hand, on 30 July the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) granted a Capital Market Service License (CMSL) to Swissquote Pte Ltd, which was founded in Singapore.

    Revenues stable

    At CHF 117.2 million, operating revenues remained stable compared to the very strong first half of 2018 (CHF 118.0 million). However, they were up almost 10 percent against the second half of 2018. The impact of negative interest rates of -CHF 5.1 million (CHF -4.2 million) led to net revenues of CHF 112.2 million, likewise in line with the year-back level (CHF 112.8 million). Owing to a significant year-on-year decline in cryptocurrency business (-CHF 4.8 million) as well as the previously communicated weak start to trading in the first few months of 2019, net fee & commission income was 17.9 percent lower at CHF 45.6 million (CHF 55.6 million). Net eForex income was up 12.5 percent to CHF 39.5 million (CHF 35.1 million). This growth was due to a 33.8 percent increase in assets held in eForex accounts to CHF 439.8 million. In addition, margins were generally improved. Net interest income increased by a substantial 35.8 percent to CHF 21.2 million (CHF 15.6 million). Net trading income (currency trading excluding eForex) was down slightly by 6.8 percent to CHF 10.9million (CHF 11.7 million).

    Controlled costs and high total equity

    Operating expenses increased year-on-year by 6.3 percent to CHF 87.1 million (CHF 82.0 million). This rise in expenses was mainly attributable to higher personnel costs (+9.0 percent) following the Internaxx integration in particular. The number of employees grew by 65 (37 of which at Internaxx) to 698. Higher expenses and unchanged revenues result in a lower pre-tax profit of CHF 25.1 million (CHF 30.8 million) and a pre-tax profit margin of 22.4 percent (27.3 percent). Net profit was 14.3 percent lower at CHF 22.0 million (CHF 25.7 million) and the net profit margin decreased to 19.6 percent (22.8 percent). On the occasion of the full year 2018 presentation, Swissquote announced a decrease of approximately CHF 10 million in pre-tax profit for 2019 owing to one-off costs for the integration of Internaxx, the founding of Swissquote Pte Ltd. as well as outlays for a Brexit contingency plan. Based on current estimates, Swissquote is now projecting only a CHF 6 million decrease in 2019 pre-tax profit. Out of this one-off costs of CHF 1.2 million were incurred in the first half and a further CHF 5 million are forecast for the second half of 2019. In addition, CHF 1.8 million are projected in 2020 (total: CHF 8 million). The capital ratio stood at 22.4 percent (27.5 percent). Accordingly, Swissquote remains one of Switzerland’s best-financed banks. Total equity increased by 9.6 percent to CHF 356.9 million (CHF 325.7 million).

    High net new money inflow

    The high net new money inflow of CHF 3.411 billion (CHF 2.421 billion) comes from organic growth (CHF 1.2 billion) and from the integration of Internaxx Bank (CHF 2.2 billion). Client assets increased by 19.5 percent to CHF 30.520 billion (CHF 25.533 billion) in the first half due to the high new money inflow and as a consequence of the general stock market trend. As at the end of June 2019, clients held assets of CHF 29.585 billion (+20.9 percent) in trading accounts, CHF 269.7 million (-45.7 percent) in saving accounts, CHF 225.8 million (-1.1 percent) in RoboAdvisory accounts and CHF 439.8 million (+33.8 percent) in eForex accounts. The total number of accounts rose by 17,140 (+5.3 percent) to a record-high 339,172 (322,032). The breakdown is as follows: 264,210 trading accounts (+5.8 percent), 19,962 saving accounts (- 26.0 percent), 3,026 Robo-Advisory accounts (+27.2 percent) and 51,974 eForex accounts (+20.9 percent). Since the saving account business has for some time no longer been profitable for Swissquote, the collaborative venture with Swiss Life was terminated effective 31 December 2018. This factor explains the significant decrease in the number of saving accounts, as well as in the corresponding volume of assets, in the first half of the year.

The crypto trading marketplace is highly competitive and is driven by innovative solutions, digitalization, excellent service delivery and intuitive user interface. That being said, massive expansion of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, in particular) is changing the modern framework of innovative potential.

    The crypto exchanges do their best to accommodate the ever-growing customer demands and outweigh competitors. It can be done through constant upgrades and updates, making the use of services understandable and transparent to the maximum, deployment of next-gen technologies and unrivalled customer services. Currently, one of the main pre-requisites for traders is a margin trading service (leveraged trading), which can significantly boost potential return on investment by using a relatively small amount of pledged assets.

    Keep Your Money: A Guide to Avoid Drowning In FX Costs

    Olymp Trade

    With the launch of a brand-new FX offering that promises huge cost savings for traders, we’ve put together the 4 surest ways to keep your trading costs low and your potential for profit high.

    You might have come across what you think are ‘endless possibilities’ of trading.

    And if you’ve got eyes, you’ll have spotted the “please trade with care” disclaimer displayed at the bottom of most retail trading sites, claiming that at least “76% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading.”

    The only way to attempt to get ahead amid this incredibly volatile market is to consider a broker that guarantees you a way of keeping your trading costs to a minimum.

    From commissions to spreads, to account funding and withdrawal policies, all of these factors have a say in how much you lose and how much you earn.

    While we ready ourselves for our sensational launch on the 28th of May, fully loaded with our unique subscription packages, let’s start with saving you some pennies...

    Rule #1 - Keep Your Commissions Low.

    For every transaction that takes place, your broker will charge a commission.

    From the moment a position is open, the first thing that is deducted from your trading account is the commission the broker charges.

    In order to make a profit, the position should move in the right direction by minimum the amount taken for paying the broker’s commission.

    But you should remember that commission goes up with volume! The bigger the volume traded, the higher the absolute commission charged. In other words, if you trade 0.1 lots and your commission is 0.9 USD, on one lot, you can expect the commission to be proportional.

    While you can’t escape commissions, given that brokers will naturally need to charge something for their services, you should learn how to interpret a commission and incorporate it as a regular cost that comes with any transaction.

    At TIOmarkets, our best subscription takes zero commissions for a small monthly fee. Meaning you pay once, and then never have to factor in commissions for any of your trades for a whole month.

    Rule #2 - Find a broker with low spreads.

    Low spreads = more money for you.

    Even without commissions factored in, you start every trade “in the red”, or making a loss. In order for your trade to become profitable, you need to cross the spread in the direction you are trading. For example, if you buy EURUSD at 1.23150 and your spread is 1 pip, you need to wait for the price to move up to 1.23160 for you to break even and not be losing on your trade.

    For this reason, lower spreads are important for you to move out of the red and into the profit zone quickly and more often.

    It’s especially important for day traders and those who open and close multiple positions per trading session.

    Be careful though, as many brokers who advertise “low spreads” compensate by charging you high commissions on each trade, or by requiring a high-deposit account.

    At TIOmarkets, we offer the same low spreads to everyone, and don’t sneak in hidden charges either.

    Our trading fees are some of the lowest you’ll find. That’s low spreads across all major, minor and exotic currency pairs.

    Rule #3 - Do your homework.

    As mentioned above, there’s no point being sold on “low spreads” or “low commissions” only to be hit with high and unexpected charges somewhere else.

    Do your research. In order to consistently perform as a trader, you need to understand all of the charges involved.

    Make sure you know exactly what charges you’re in for – spreads, commissions, deposits, withdrawals, support – you need to be in the know to avoid finding yourself suddenly short on your balance.

    Once you’ve done all of your homework, signed up for a demo account, done your practice, and, most importantly, put a trading plan in place, it’s time to go live.

    Once you’re on the right track, you’ll start trading with real money. Just be sure to start small when going live! Make a deposit, a few trades, and a withdrawal to uncover any hidden charges.

    TIOmarkets promises no hidden charges. You pay one low monthly fee for huge cost savings on the other side, and other exclusive benefits.

    Rule #4 - Find a reputable broker.

    Forex trading is booming. And while the number of online and mobile trading platforms continuously increase, we slowly see the barriers to entry decrease.

    And this is the exact reason why partnering with a reputable broker is crucial, because it’s the only way to protect yourself against malpractice that could wipe out your account.

    It’s no secret that the unregulated forex market is full of bad actors who are looking to profit by offering a poor or rigged service.

    These brokers are able to manipulate prices and spreads to ensure you don’t make a profit, or find reasons to withhold your withdrawal.

    Don’t fall for the scams scattered across the forex market. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

    So once you’ve researched and compared the market, we trust you’ll find us. TIOmarkets UK Ltd holds a license from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Trade with confidence and with no compromise on trust, security and transparency.

    Navigate Your Way to Profit

    It’s turbulent waters out there. If you’re not careful, you’ll be drowning in a sea of unwanted charges.

    Come up for air, fill your lungs, and trade with a broker you can trust.

    TIOmarkets is a regulated broker offering unique FX and CFDs trading subscriptions and a treasure-chest of benefits for one low monthly or quarterly fee.

    Our best plan, VIP Black, gives you:

    0 Commissions Pay nothing in commissions, no matter how large your volumes or how frequently you trade.

    Low Spreads

    Unlike other “0 commission” brokers, we don’t squeeze you with higher spreads to compensate. Zero commissions, low spreads, no trade-off.

    TIOreimburse - Get 50% back of your first deposit.

    If you are stopped out within one month of signing up to trade with TIOmarkets, we’ll give you 50% back of your initial deposit, no questions asked.

    TIOshield - Your trading armor.

    For when trades go wrong, we offer an insurance service that lets you reverse bad trades within 60 minutes in order to get your money back.

    So, when do we open the doors

    We’ll be cutting the ribbon on the 28th of May!

    New FX broker offers 3-month free trial for cost-saving subscription packages

    TIOmarkets has announced that it is closely approaching its target of achieving 10,000 sign-ups to its new FX and crypto trading platform. Until then, its trademark trading packages worth up to $150 per trader, are being given for FREE, for three months. The clock is ticking…. https://bit.ly/2Y9LI2s;

    Olymp Trade

    TIOmarkets, known for its innovative and sometimes controversial marketing campaigns, is launching full throttle onto the forex scene with its innovative subscription packages. With this subscription model, the company offers traders the chance to pay a low monthly fee in exchange for zero commissions and other exclusive benefits. For traders wishing to trade in an FCA-regulated environment, this provides an ideal cost-saving opportunity.

    Subscription models versus a la carte trading

    With subscription services being such a big part of daily life, it’s a surprise FX firms haven’t successfully offered this yet. With one subscription monthly fee, traders enjoy increased efficiency, consistency, better cash flow management and untold potential cost savings. One estimation found that frequent traders, depending on the size of their portfolio, could spend hundreds – even thousands of dollars per month on wide spreads, extra commissions and other hidden costs.

    Calculate what you could save with the TIOmarkets savings calculator. Using average figures from the top 25 forex brokers, you can see how a trader that trades a conservative figure of 50 round lots per month would be paying $400 in fees – that’s at least 10 times the cost of the subscription package. Check out the savings calculator here: https://bit.ly/2Y9LI2s

    The TIOmarkets subscription packages eliminate extra costs from trading entirely. And to celebrate the launch of the new brand, they are offering three months worth of the top subscription package to the first 10,000 sign-ups for free. That’s an immediate saving of $150, plus untold other savings depending on how frequently trades are made ...the clock is ticking.

    Not your typical FX broker

    The company has coined a no-nonsense approach. Bursting onto the scene with a controversial April Fools’ Hoax this year, the management team made it clear that it was their goal to be as transparent as possible about the costs and pitfalls of the financial markets.

    Head of Business Development Terence Tan stated: “You have to go into trading with your eyes wide open. Trading can be risky and the markets can be volatile. These are two facts that need to be handled head-on rather than hidden in the fine print. We aren’t burying our heads in the sand and hoping that our traders don’t notice extra commissions. We are shouting loud and clear – pay subscriptions once per month and save a tremendous amount!”

    You just pay one flat rate and that’s it. And for those who don't like the idea of paying monthly, TIOmarkets has a pay as you go option. For any crypto holders, they may HODL, deposit or withdraw in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or alt coins.

    Anyone who subscribes to the monthly or quarterly packages will also gain access to a range of premium services.

    TIOshield to the rescue! For when trades go wrong, TIOshield is an insurance service that allows the trader to reverse bad trades within 60 minutes in order to get their money back.

    A fresh approach from an experienced FX team.

    On their website, they mention: “Forex trading isn’t new to us. Not at all. Our team members come from some of the world’s top brokers. We’ve been around the block.

    And because of our experience, we’ve seen what goes on. Sales teams pressuring traders into depositing more than they want to. Dealing rooms manipulating trades. Not to mention, tons of added charges slapped onto client accounts leading to complaints and unhappy traders.”

    Fully Licensed & RegulatedTIOmarkets UK Ltd holds a license from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

    Razor-thin Spreads

    Their trading fees are some of the lowest you’ll find. They offer low spreads across all major, minor and exotic currency pairs.

    Metaquotes Platform

    Chosen by millions of traders around the world, the MT4 and MT5 platforms give traders all the tools needed to plan and execute a successful trading strategy on the world’s financial markets.

    TIOmarkets Chief Marketing Officer Helen Astaniou sharply summarizes how TIOmarkets is not just your average broker. She explains:

    “Every single trade costs money. And expensive trading can take a toll on traders’ psychology as well as their investment size.

    Why should your investment size dwindle by the sheer act of making a trade? It doesn't seem right. That's why we want to show that trading doesn't need to be and shouldn’t be expensive.  Paying once per month is a smart trading model that takes the headache and the cost out of frequent trading.”

    It’s time to raise your trading game

    Choose to trade in crypto or fiat, access premium webinars and educational content, or simply experience their innovative programs such as TIOshield & TIOreimburse. No more partner commissions eating into the profits of trading clients.

    So hurry! There are only a few days left until the firm onboards their ten thousandth client, and will open its doors for trading.

    Sign upto be part of a best-in-class environment to trade the global markets.

Thousands of voters cast their support for AETOS’ transparent and fast trading technology to see the company’s NDD rewarded once again.

    April Fools’ hoax and industry exposé from TIOmarkets goes viral

    The management team of TIOmarkets has announced that their “incredible, unbelievable and never seen before in FX” offer was in fact part of our marketing drive for an April Fools’ campaign and client awareness.

    The prank, which coincided with the opening of its doors for pre-registration, was intended to counter the misleading and often unrealistic promotions that are so commonly released by companies within the industry.

    TIOmarkets today announced the hoax on https://tiomarkets.com/vr with the following statement:

    “For those of you who fell for it, we apologise for leading you up the garden path. There is a valuable lesson to be learned… the story about the partnership with the deep tech firm, the payment methods and the VR was made up. Think of it as a metaphor for all of the things wrong misleading with the forex industry at the moment. While these promises are all very good (and don’t we wish they were real!), they are quite simply, too good to be true.”

    The campaign itself consisted of a video showing TIOmarkets partnering with a deep tech firm, which pledged to allow withdrawals and funding of accounts via any bank in the world. Veterans of the forex industry will be familiar with this deep-seated issue, which negatively impacts upon a great many traders living in specific certain jurisdictions worldwide. The video also promised free VR headsets and Android mobile devices to the first 100,000 sign ups of the company.

    “Let’s start cleaning up: No false promises and hidden charges – we offer what we intend to provide – an excellent trading experience with no surprises.” On https://tiomarkets.com/vr, the firm stated that it wished to expose some of the inequalities within the industry, and through its no-nonsense tone of voice, plans to continue such frank and open discourse with FX traders about the dangers of FX trading.

    TIOmarkets management acknowledges that this campaign was both innovative and controversial. Head of Business Development Terence Tan commented: “This campaign represents our positioning in the industry. We plan to prove to our clients every single day that we are all about transparency and honesty, qualities that can be rarely found anywhere else. We believe it’s time for an industry shake up.”

    TIOmarkets will be the first in the FX industry to offer a subscription model to its clients, where traditionally the widening of spreads, partner commissions, and other company overheads have eaten into the profits of investors. TIOmarkets positions itself differently by offering a monthly subscription cost. The VIP Black package, for instance, is 49.95 USD per month and contains no hidden charges, costs or fees. This could mean significant savings for our investors. We offer a number of different packages to suit individual client needs.

    Doors for registration open 2nd April 2019. Visit tiomarkets.com/vr to find out more.

The website www.JFDBANK.com is the new online hub for all current and future services offered by the FinTech group.

    JFD Bank AG is the new name of the German-based investment bank acquired by JFD Group in 2018. The final stage of the transaction was completed in March 2019, when the remaining 20% of the shares were exchanged. Following this major milestone, JFD Group Ltd. is now the single owner of the BaFin-regulated entity, allowing the company to offer services such as designated sponsoring, institutional sales trading, initial public offerings, transaction structuring and more.

They cover all the needs of businesses and corporations when it comes to trading and investing – Prime Brokerage & Liquidity, Designated Sponsoring, Institutional Sales Trading, Capital Markets & Investment Banking.

JFD is on a mission to set new standards in the trading, investing and banking world, and JFDBANK.com is just the beginning.”

    JFD

    13. February 2019 – After the successful acquisition of the German-based ACON bank, the multi-asset fintech group introduces commission-free stock trading conditions and adds Dutch stocks to its product portfolio.

    Historically stock trading has been an expensive endeavour for retail traders and investors. High fees charged by traditional brokers are oftentimes the difference between a winning and a losing share trade. Although technology has replaced many of the bottlenecks raising the cost of trading, these savings have not been passed onto end-clients and mostly kept on the brokers’ books as additional profit.

    JFD Brokers is an innovative trading service provider challenging this status quo by introducing zero-fee stock trading for its clients. Effective immediately real stock trading with the company is totally commission-free. The new conditions come with no limitations to number of trades, minimum volumes, or additional monthly fees and charges. New and existing clients can take advantage of zero-fee stock trading by simply opening a JFD trading account.

    „It has always been our goal to be at the forefront of fintech innovation and offer the best possible service for traders and investors. Cutting all commissions for stock trading is just the first step in our long-term vision to become a preferred financial service provider,” explains Lars Gottwik, founder and CEO of JFD Brokers. He adds: “JFD is mostly comprised of forward-thinking Millennials and we know what the new generation expects when it comes to finance, technology and customer service.”

    On top of the revolutionary new offer for stock trading, JFD Brokers has added new instruments to its product portfolio. Clients can now trade a selection of Dutch stocks via both MetaTrader 5 and Guidants platforms. This new addition brings the total number of real stocks offered by JFD to more than 600 from Germany, USA, and the Netherlands. The company also provides Forex and CFD trading on ETFs, Indices, Commodities, Cryptocurrencies and Bonds.

    In 2018 JFD acquired the BaFin-regulated investment bank ACON Actienbank with offices in Munich and Frankfurt.

    Swissquote posts record figures in 2018

    During the presentation of the 2018 half-year figures, Swissquote announced an expected growth in earnings and profit of 15 percent for the year as a whole. This forecast has now been achieved with total earnings in the order of CHF 214 million and exceeded with pre-tax profit of CHF 53.5 million (+16 percent compared to the previous year). Swissquote thus presents the best annual result in its history.

Swissquote was the first European online bank to offer this service, allowing to trade digital currencies on its platform since the beginning of July 2017.

    The results do not yet include any figures from the Luxembourg-based Internaxx Bank, acquired on 7 August 2018. The acquisition must first be approved by the Luxembourg and European supervisory authorities. This should take place at the end of the first quarter of 2019 and will therefore affect the annual result for 2019.
