How to keep your perspective on the market

first_img continue reading » Basics of the marketCreated in 1792 on Wall Street, the first major U.S. stock exchange was the New York Stock & Exchange Board (now known as the New York Stock Exchange).

The money raised can help grow these businesses. And investors/shareholders can participate in it. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulates and oversees the U.S. stock markets.1For some, following the stock market can seem daunting — but it doesn’t need to be.Here are five tips on how to gain perspective, keep your cool, and make investing decisions based on good information — not out of fear or worry.Invest for the long-termSaving for retirement is a journey, not a sprint.

New IORP draft sees member states claw back powers from EIOPA

first_imgEU member states are clawing back powers from the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), according to a revised draft of the IORP Directive that would see responsibility for the proposed risk assessment framework resting with national regulators.The compromise text also sees an attempt to remove Poland’s private pensions pillar completely from the scope of the Directive, and potentially grants members the powers to veto a cross-border move.A prior draft drawn up by the Italian government, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the Council of the EU, offered further details on the proposed risk-evaluation for pensions (REP), an area that, under the new version, would be the responsibility of individual member states.According to the newly revised version of Article 29, individual member states’ regulators would be granted the powers to specify the format, structure and sequence of any REP. The initial IORP II draft published in March granted the European Commission the power to lay down detail of the REP in a delegated act, a clause amended in last month’s initial compromise text to say EIOPA would publish relevant regulations.The new wording amounts to member states stripping EIOPA of the ability to set technical standards for the sector, reclaiming powers previously delegated to the European supervisor.Attempts to shift drafting responsibility for the REP to national regulators will be welcomed by many in the industry.There were previously calls for the framework to be drafted fully before the revised Directive could be passed by the European Parliament, as delegated acts are not subject to parliamentary scrutiny.Changes to the REP also see “new and emerging risks” reinserted, phrasing removed in the prior draft that would require IORPs to take account of climate-change risks and, potentially, stranded assets, such as coal that can no longer be extracted.Other notable changes affect the procedures for a cross-border transfer of pension assets, potentially granting members the ability to veto any such move.Under a rewritten clause that previously only saw the transfer of assets subject to approval by the “representatives of the members and beneficiaries”, the move would now be subject to “prior approval by […] the members and beneficiaries concerned”.The new version of the Directive also sees an attempt to remove the Polish open pension funds (OFEs) and other Central and Eastern European (CEE) private pillars completely from its scope.According to the amendment, funds acting “as part of the mandatory social security schemes” should be excluded.Poland and other second-pillar funds in CEE states are funded by the state diverting part of the first-pillar contributions to the private institutions.last_img read more

Palace and Norwich draw

first_img Norwich had dished out a 1-0 win over Palace to ruin Tony Pulis’ first game at the helm in November but Chris Hughton’s side have won just once in seven league outings since then. With the Selhurst Park pitch subjected to an ongoing downpour, referee Mike Dean was careful to take several looks at the surface before giving the game the green light. Press Association Bradley Johnson hammered the Canaries in front with a well-taken effort before Jason Puncheon levelled with a penalty late in the first-half. Despite having the better of the second period and Leroy Fer seeing red late on for the visitors, Palace could not find the winning goal and are now back inside the bottom three – with Norwich down to 15th. The first half-chance of the game fell to Puncheon as Joel Ward’s deep cross dropped kindly for the Southampton loanee, who could not time his effort which was easily cleared. Yannick Bolasie was tripped by Robert Snodgrass as he looked to turn away from the Norwich winger, with Eagles’ skipper Mile Jedinak bending the resulting free-kick just over the crossbar. Cameron Jerome had been passed fit to start despite suffering a knee injury at Manchester City on Saturday and he had a great chance to open the scoring on the half-hour mark – but he could not convert Puncheon’s cross after he had robbed Nathan Redmond of possession on the edge of the Norwich box. Norwich, who have not won at Palace in almost 21 years, had enjoyed pockets of possession without truly testing Julian Speroni in the Palace goal. But, as half-time approached, the visitors started to look more dangerous as Wes Hoolahan began to pull the strings with Snodgrass and Gary Hooper also coming in to the game for the Canaries. It did not take long for that pressure to pay off as Hoolahan and Hooper combined on the right before the latter cut the ball back to Johnson, who fired in off the post to put Hughton’s side in front. Marouane Chamakh, recalled to the starting line-up after being dropped to the bench at Man City, was then involved in an altercation with Hoolahan and was lucky to only pick up a yellow card after shoving the Republic of Ireland international to the ground. Jerome saw a header cleared off the line by Martin Olsson shortly afterwards before Mike Dean pointed to the spot, with Fer booked after he was adjudged to have pushed Jedinak in the back from the resulting corner. Puncheon stepped up and sent Ruddy the wrong way to level just before half-time. The England goalkeeper was almost caught cold at the start of the second half as Bolasie’s near-post corner almost eluded Ruddy, who could only scramble the ball behind for a corner. Speroni was also called in to action as he did well to keep out Redmond’s low shot six minutes after the break. Turner then missed a clearance to gift Palace another corner which found its way to Jerome, who could only fire his shot well over the bar. The mis-kick spelt the end of Turner’s game as he left the field with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, with Ryan Bennett replacing the former Sunderland man in the Canaries’ defence. With the hosts on top for much of the second half, Pulis decided to introduce Dwight Gayle in place of Jerome – who had wasted two gilt-edged opportunities before coming off after 63 minutes. With the rain still pouring and Palace on top, Norwich’s defence was starting to creak under the strain of keeping the Eagles at bay, with Pulis’ side unable to make the most of their constant string of corners. Hooper was feeding on scraps for Norwich but he did test Speroni with a low effort at the mid way point of the half, before Johan Elmander was introduced at the expense of Hoolahan to give the visitors more of a physical presence in attack. Any hopes Hughton had of leaving south London with three points took a blow when Fer was dismissed with seven minutes to go after picking up a second caution for a late challenge of Jedinak. Russell Martin was called upon by the Norwich boss to keep things tight at the back in the latter stages as the Scotland defender replaced Hooper. Palace could not muster up a clear-cut chance to secure all three points and, with Fulham beating West Ham, it means Pulis must now pull his side out of the relegation zone once again. Crystal Palace and 10-man Norwich played out a New Year’s Day draw in poor conditions at Selhurst Park – with a point not enough to prevent the Eagles slipping back in to the Barclays Premier League bottom three.last_img read more

Nunoo Mensah: Other disciplines deserve a share of the FIFA World Cup cash

first_imgPresident of the Ghana Weightlifting Federation (GWF), Ben Nunoo Mensah has expressed his disappointment in the dispute on the allocation of the earnings of the World cup in Brazil. The Ghana FA is expected to cash in an amount of $8million as proceeds by next week as FIFA begins the distribution of its cash price to the 32 countries that participated in the Mundial which ended in July. Nunoo Mensah has condemned calls by some members of the Ghana FA clamoring for the money to be solely invested in football related activities.Speaking on Asempa fm’s Ultimate sports show, he said about 99% of the nations sports budget is channeled to football at the detriment of other sports and therefore returns yielded must be shared equally amongst the least financed sports.“I think the people involved in football in this country are getting everything wrong concerning sports in Ghana. What they need to understand is, football has developed because the least financed sports have been forgone. What would have happened if we all had demanded for our share of the sports budget. Do they think government would have gotten money for them to play their qualifiers and get the World Cup.“Ask the ministry if a penny has been given to me (weightlifting) since I took over as president of the Federation. Meanwhile, we are able to compete in international competitions and win medals for Ghana from individual pockets but when these football people go to competitions, apart from the per diems they also get winning bonuses including the managers,  that is not the case in ours. The money is not football money that is what they should understand. It is government money.” He added.The Ghana FA is however expected to pay back to government chest half of the amount which was transported to pre finance the appearance fees and bonuses of the entire Black Stars contingent to Brazil.The Ghana FA in recent times has been deliberating on plans to judiciously use the remaining $4million to develop football in the country.last_img read more
