New US house and jobs data points to recovery

first_imgThursday 20 January 2011 11:26 am Share whatsapp whatsapp New US data has offered renewed hope for the economy’s two stubborn trouble spots – employment, and the housing market. US home resales jumped more than expected in December despite bad weather as sellers cut prices while jobless claims fell sharply last week, official figures showed. Existing home sales soared 12.3 per cent to an annual rate of 5.28 million units, the National Association of Realtors said, far surpassing forecasts for a rise to 4.85 million. However, sales were down 2.9 per cent from a year earlier.In another report, applications for new jobless benefits posted their biggest decline in nearly a year, erasing a holiday-related spike to show a steady if slow improvement in the labour market. Claims retreated to 404,000 from 441,000 in the prior week, the Labour Department said.“Most of the reports today were fairly good. For anyone skeptical about the US recovery, these should ease concern,” said Kathy Lien, director of research at GTF Forex in New York. A report on Mid-Atlantic manufacturing showed a modest pullback, but its details showed some underlying strength. The Philadelphia Fed’s index of regional factory activity dipped to 19.3 in January from 20.8 in December. Prices paid jumped sharply as global commodity prices remained high. The new orders index more than doubled to 23.6, while the survey’s employment index, though still soft, reached its highest level since April 2006.Yet another report showed an index of leading economic indicators spiking up one per cent, above forecasts for a 0.6 per cent gain. US stocks pared losses while bond prices extended their losses after the surprisingly upbeat housing data. alison.lock Tags: NULLcenter_img New US house and jobs data points to recovery Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

US Treasury Department to sell off $142bn in securities holdings

first_img Share Tags: NULL US Treasury Department to sell off $142bn in securities holdings Show Comments ▼ KCS-content THE US Treasury Department said it will begin later this month to sell off $142bn (£87bn) in mortgage-backed securities it acquired to combat the 2007-2009 financial crisis.The move to dispose of its portfolio of agency-backed MBS by selling $10bn worth each month was seen as a signal of the government’s confidence in the recovery, and is expected to reap $15bn to $20bn profit.Markets were caught by surprise at the announcement of a fresh supply of high-quality debt coming to market, and prices for competing US government debt fell while agency MBS spreads versus Treasuries widened.The Treasury holdings are primarily 30-year fixed-rate MBS guaranteed by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, the mortgage giants that were taken into public ownership in the crisis. whatsapp Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Danish online gambling rates fall during lockdown

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Casino & games Online gambling rates in Denmark have declined during a nationwide lockdown to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19), according to data from the country’s Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden). Danish online gambling rates fall during lockdown Tags: Mobile Online Gambling AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 13th May 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Online gambling rates in Denmark have declined during a nationwide lockdown to limit the spread of novel coronavirus (Covid-19), according to data from the country’s Gaming Authority (Spillemyndigheden).The regulator compared data from 9 March to 3 May 2020 to data from the same period of the previous year.During this period, it found that weekly online casino revenue grew slightly, by an average of 2% and with a weekly high of 3% before declining back to 2% in the last week studied.Director of the Danish Gambling Authority Morten Niels Jakobsen said that while the lockdown obviously had a very serious effect on the land-based sector, revenue lost from this channel did was not mitigated by online growth.“It very much looks like some of the measures that have been put in place in connection with the lockdown of Denmark has had an effect on parts of the gambling market – particularly on betting, land-based casinos and gaming machines” Jakobsen said. “Although it is still too soon to measure the full effect of the coronavirus crisis on the gambling market, it does not appear as if the decrease in gambling at land-based casinos and gaming machines as well as betting has caused an increase in gambling on online casino.”The regulator added that, as these figures are usually expected to increase year-on-year, it doesn’t appear that lockdown caused an increase in online casino play at all.“From 2018 to 2019, the online casino market increased by 8% of gross gaming revenue,” it said. “Consequently, it cannot be concluded that the recent increase is due to Covid-19. Thus, currently, Danes do not seem to move their gambling from one gambling sector to another during Covid-19.”However, this has been offset by the much sharper decline in online betting, caused by the cancellation of almost all sports across the globe. Online betting revenue fell by an average of 53%, declining week-on-week every week until the last of the measured period, at a low of 60% below 2019.The regulator also revealed that self-exclusion register Rofus “has not seen great variation in the number of registered players during the lockdown”. The StopSpillet problem gambling helpline, meanwhile, has seen fewer calls in March and April of 2020 than in the same months of 2019.Spillemyndigheden said it would continue monitoring the Danish gambling market and will examine how the markets react when certain activities are yet again opened.The announcement follows the release of data from Great Britain’s Gambling Commission, which found that more people in the UK have stopped gambling under lockdown than started or increased play.

Photo: Holy Nativity Episcopal School, via Facebook[Episcopal News Service] The Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast will welcome Presiding Bishop Michael Curry this weekend as he visits some of the Florida Panhandle congregations that still are rebounding from damage caused by Hurricane Michael in October.Curry’s pastoral visit to the diocese will focus on congregations in and around Panama City, near where Michael made landfall Oct. 10 as a devastating Category 4 hurricane. At 155 mph, it was said to be one of the strongest hurricanes ever to hit the mainland United States. The diocese says eight churches were damaged by the storm, as well as one Episcopal school that still has not yet been able to return to its own classrooms.“The presiding bishop’s visit with us this weekend will be a powerful reminder of the best of bonds between us, and that bond is love,” Bishop Russell Kendrick said in an emailed statement. “Together we are stronger, and we will continue to find new life.”A man walks past buildings damaged by Hurricane Michael in Panama City, Florida, on Oct. 11. Photo: ReutersThe scene on the ground looked bleak immediately after the storm, but three months later, the diocese expects to present Curry with stories of resilience and mutual support. Diocesan leaders paired unaffected congregations that had extra resources with those struggling the most during the recovery phase.“The churches themselves, our congregations, are past the initial stages, whether it’s shock or just disbelief that it happened. They are building back their lives together,” Chris Heaney, the diocese’s emergency response coordinator, told Episcopal News Service by phone. “They certainly inspire me because they’re very much relying on each other.”Hiring Heaney was one of the Kendrick’s first responses to the hurricane, just days after Michael struck, and Heaney coordinated the diocese’s efforts with help from Episcopal Relief & Development and local clergy who had lived through previous hurricanes. Heaney, senior warden at Christ Episcopal Church in Pensacola, to the west of Panama City, is a retired naval officer who was available to work full time on a six-month assignment for the diocese.The diocese identified eight churches with properties that were significantly damaged by the storm: St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Holy Nativity Episcopal Church and St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Panama City; Grace Episcopal Church and St. Thomas by the Sea Episcopal Church in Panama City Beach; St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Marianna; St. James Episcopal Church in Port St. Joe; and St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Wewahitchka.Heaney said the storm’s track spared most of those communities the severe flooding that hurricanes often bring, but the winds were intense, leaving roofs tattered, walls battered and trees down.Sixteen congregations that weren’t affected by the storm were paired with the eight congregations expressing the greatest need for money, supplies, administrative support or volunteer labor. Heaney’s own Christ Episcopal Church and St. James Episcopal Church in Fairhope, Alabama, were assigned to support Holy Nativity.“It can’t be easy, and every time I talk to them, they’re in good spirits dealing with hard things,” Heaney said.The storm initially disrupted worship schedules, but none of the damage to the church buildings was severe enough to prevent any of the congregations from resuming services within two Sundays of Hurricane Michael’s landfall. They now are in the process of following up with insurance claims to complete repairs.A more disheartening scene was found at Holy Nativity Episcopal School, which Heaney said was the property in the diocese in the worst shape after the hurricane. The wind was particularly destructive to the school’s second floor, severely damaging the walls, the roof and a bell tower.Students aren’t expected to return to the school any sooner than fall 2019, Heaney said, but their education is proceeding. St. Thomas by the Sea in Panama City Beach offered space at the church for classes until the students were moved into temporary classrooms set up on the grounds of Holy Nativity Episcopal Church.The school is one of the first stops on Curry’s two-day visit to the area. He will inspect the damaged school building Jan. 12, before making his way to two listening sessions with hurricane victims, one at Holy Nativity Church at 10 a.m. and the other at St. James in Port St. Joe at 3 p.m. He also is scheduled to preach Jan. 13 at St. Andrew’s in Panama City.The pastoral visit comes just a month after Curry made a similar trip to the Diocese of East Carolina, which was hit hard by Hurricane Florence in September. There, he heard stories from Episcopalians of neighbors helping neighbors, and the stories of surviving natural disaster will continue this weekend in Florida.“One thing that it seems that everyone in the area needs is the ability to just talk about what happened,” Heaney said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The April issue of DS News, puts the GSEs’ move out of conservatorship under the microscope. In this month’s cover story, “Finding a Path to GSE Reform,” servicers and other subject-matter experts discuss the GSEs’ history, the stakes involved, and the challenges ahead.In 2019, the GSEs took an important step toward privatization when the FHFA announced the hiring of Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc., as its financial advisor to assist in the development of a plan to conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Tim Rood, Chairman and co-founder of the Collingwood Group, told DS News that this announcement is an “important milestone” in the process to end conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.“The FHFA still needs to produce a capital plan from which the advisor will work from to develop a capital restoration roadmap for the GSEs,” Rood said.The discussion continues in “Housing Reform: Here and Now, Then and Later,” written by Rohit Gupta, President and CEO, Genworth Mortgage Insurance. As the government and industry work to build and maintain a more stable housing market, Gupta examines what factors must be at the forefront of this process, with the GSE’s conservatorship serving as a “hot button issue.”Next up, Auction.com’s VP of Market Economics, Daren Blomquist, brings us “Sell While the Sun Shines.” Blomquist explores why now is the time for sellers of distressed properties to act—and reveals some best practices on how to proceed while opportunity is still knocking.In “Leveraging Machine Learning for Better Default Decisions,” Miriam Moore, Division President of Default Services for ServiceLink, discusses why the potential for artificial intelligence to drive industry innovation isn’t limited to the origination sector.Finally, in “With Your Permission,” Lynn Sheck, SVP of Enterprise and Strategic Sales at Finicity, takes a look at the ways consumer-permissioned data is transforming default servicing.For all these stories and more, read the April edition of DS News here, out now.
