In the words of Ron Burgundy – Accendo Markets

Mike van Dulken, head of Research at Accendo Markets commented to clients this afternoon

“Well, that escalated quickly, really, that got out of hand fast!”

In the words of Ron Burgundy….. – Accendo Markets

In the words of Ron Burgundy….. – Accendo Markets

“Equities are nursing losses thanks to an unwelcome (unless of course you’re short!) escalation in geopolitical tensions between the US and North Korea, both trading nuclear threats that have awoken volatility from its slumber and seen risk assets shunned in favour of the traditional safe havens. The UK FTSE100 is getting most of its negative influence from Financials, Pharma, Miners and those with big international exposure as GBP strengthens against both USD and EUR. This is easily outweighing limited support from Vodafone, BAES Systems and precious metal miners Fresnillo and Randgold Resources. Germany’s DAX is sharply lower, in spite of a lower EUR, due to big losses for banks (Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank) like the FTSE, coupled with widespread weakness across a mix of insurers (Munich Re results), consumer and industrials. The FTSE 100 has broken below 7500, potentially the start of another leg lower, fuelled by 41pts of ex-divs tomorrow. The DAX 30 has fallen back to August rising support at 12125. Dow Jones Futures have found support at 22000. Gold has broken beyond August falling at $1266. Bullish flag to $1320?”

Accendo Markets & Equity Release

What Is Equity Release?

Equity release is the use of financial arrangements that provide the owner of a house, or other property, with funds derived from the value of the property while enabling them to continue using it.

How Does Equity Release Work?

Equity release is aimed at homeowners aged 55 and over. It allows you to take some of the value of your home as cash.

Equity Release on Nurses

Equity in healthcare is defined from three positions: (1) equal access to care for equal needs, (2) equal use for equal needs, and (3) equal quality of care for all those who need it. … In the field of healthcare, nurses are frequently faced with decisions whose outcomes may be regarded as equitable or inequitable.
