Investors wait for Fed moves – New York Report

first_img Investors wait for Fed moves – New York Report Express KCS Sunday 29 March 2015 11:00 pm Share WALL STREET investors may find little reason to make big moves this week as they await monthly US jobs data and any news that could change expectations for the first rate hike in almost a decade.The Labor Department report is due on Friday, when the market will be closed for Good Friday, leaving investors unable to trade on the data until the following week.Meanwhile, investors will continue adjusting to lowered earnings forecasts for the first quarter and the uncertain direction of the dollar. Stocks have trended downward since rallying on the Federal Reserve’s 18 March statement, in which it suggested a more dovish approach to raising rates than investors had expected.Uncertainty surrounding the Fed’s rate move has been one of the key factors creating more volatility and putting greater emphasis on data that could sway the Bank. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofHomemade Tomato Soup: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBaked Sesame Salmon: Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Investors turned to fixed income ETFs in June: report

first_imgusiness graph with arrow showing profits and gains nexusplexus/123RF IE Staff Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Mutual fund sales dipped, but still outpaced ETF sales in April Canadian ETF investment was flat in June, with strong flows into actively managed fixed income products cancelled out by redemptions in iShares’ S&P/TSX 60 Index ETF (XIU), a report from National Bank says.Outflows last month totalled $133 million, driven by $1.45 billion in redemptions from Canadian equity funds. Redemptions in iShare’s XIU totalled $1.96 billion in June. Keywords ETFs,  Fixed-income funds Related news Thematic funds thrived during pandemic, but watch long-term performance: report $4.7B flowed into Canadian ETFs in March Fixed income ETFs drew $885 million, bringing total inflows this year for the asset class to $6 billion. Investors moved money into low-cost aggregate bond funds as well as actively managed global fixed income funds with higher fees, the report said, reflecting a “fearful sentiment” in the equity market.On the equity side, low volatility and low-cost benchmark products were in demand.“Canadian ETF investors still seem rather defensively positioned, with low-volatility and income-themed equity ETFs winning the popularity contest in June, despite the fact that strong market action worked more favourably for plain cap-weighted indices,” the report said.For the first six months of 2019, Canadian ETFs saw inflows of $10.36 billion, bringing total assets to more than $181 billion.The report noted the defensive theme for the year, with fixed income ETF flows double those of equity in the first half. Within equities, low-volatility products and those focused on real estate, healthcare and utilities gained from January to June, while financial sector ETFs bled.The volatility in equities hasn’t deterred new entrants, the report said, with five new providers entering the market this year. Six providers launched new products in June.Read the full report here.U.S. market sees big gainsThe U.S. market saw the largest monthly inflow of the year in June, with US$50 billion flowing into ETFs, a separate National Bank report said.Fixed income ETFs accounted for US$26 billion, the highest monthly inflow ever recorded, the report said, reflecting “a continued defensive stance.” For the first half of 2019, fixed income ETFs saw US$74 billion in net inflows, accounting for 63% of the US$118 billion total.ESG products have had a “blockbuster” first half, the report said, with the US$4.2 billion in flows already topping any previous total for a full year.Read the full U.S. report here.

CMA takes Norton to court for withholding information

first_imgCMA takes Norton to court for withholding information The CMA is taking a leading anti-virus software firm, Norton, to court after it refused to provide certain information for an investigation into auto-renewing contracts.During its investigation into the anti-virus software sector, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has identified a number of important concerns that Norton’s terms and practices for automatically renewing contracts could result in customers paying for services they no longer want or need.To progress its case on the basis of relevant evidence, the CMA requested information from Norton, including research undertaken by the software firm on how customers responded to website information on auto-renewal and pricing. Norton has refused to provide some of this information.The CMA considers Norton’s non-compliance to be in breach of its legal obligations and the CMA will now use its powers to enforce the request for information through the courts. This is the first time the CMA has needed to take this step in a consumer protection case.Andrea Coscelli, CMA Chief Executive, said:It is completely unacceptable that a leading anti-virus software firm has refused to supply all the information we asked for, which is why we’re taking the firm to court.Our unprecedented decision in this case reflects the serious impact of Norton’s refusal, which is delaying a CMA investigation intended to protect UK consumers.A rollover or auto-renewing contract automatically renews at the end of a set time period onto a further set period. It means the customer – whose payment details are kept on file – is charged unless the customer actively takes steps to cancel the contract.During this case, the CMA is investigating whether Norton:provides sufficiently clear or prominent information that a contract will automatically renew, both before the customer enters into the contract and then before it automatically renewsprovides the customer with adequate ways to cancel the automatic renewaluses price promotions that present a regular introductory price as a sale priceuses unfair contract terms to increase the prices paid by customers when contracts automatically renewThe CMA has made an application to obtain an Order requiring Norton to provide the outstanding information. /Public Release.

Unique Kinetic Sculpture To Be Erected At New Engineering Facility

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail A unique, wind-driven kinetic sculpture will be erected outside CU-Boulder1s new Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory at the College of Engineering and Applied Science on Friday, Feb. 21, weather permitting. The 10-foot-by-10-foot steel-framed sculpture will be made up of 10,000 small mylar disks that move freely on rivets, allowing the wind to generate a variety of individual patterns on the sculpture’s face. The sculpture also will be interactive, allowing people to push a lever and create their own artistic patterns with the mylar disks, said ITLL Exhibits Director Steve Davis. The sculpture was designed by noted San Francisco artist Ned Kahn, formerly of San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum. Kahn’s sculpture, which will cost about $38,000, is being funded by the state of Colorado’s 1 percent tax for the arts. Kahn’s sculpture was the unanimous choice by the CU engineering judges in a competition for an outdoor ITLL exhibit. The 800-pound sculpture will be mounted with a crane by the northeast door of the new ITLL facility, which opened this semester adjacent to the main engineering college. The $20 million undergraduate facility was designed to allow thousands of students to gain hands-on experience daily in designing and building real-world engineering projects. The new facility will be officially dedicated on April 24. For more information, contact Davis at 492-4676 or Jim Scott in the CU-Boulder public relations office at 492-3114.
