NobleSpirit, Together with (SMI) Stamp Market Index, Discover New Generation Of Collectors on eBay

October 1, 2019 by Anni Parita  

NobleSpirit, a leading dealer of asset class stamps, coins and collectibles on eBay, this morning announced new information emerging from its recently introduced data analysis tool Stamp Market Index (SMI), powered by eBay.

The new data suggests that many previously help concepts regarding traditional collector demographics are now being challenged by a new younger and more diverse base. "We are experiencing a major shift in a landscape that has been dormant for many decades,"said Joe Cortese, NobleSpirit. "In just 39 days, since Stamp Market Index was launched, new users registered from 62 countries. Preliminary results are indicative of a strong positive trend for the future of the stamp industry. eBay, technology and social media are the keys to that future."

Stamp Market Index published some if its preliminary findings in its inaugural newsletter, which was subsequently made available to the public on its website at:  https://www.stampmarketindex.com/poweredby/newsletters/1

eBay's infrastructure has been highly effective in delivering value along the entire funnel from demand logistics to supply chain distribution networks. It has been clear for over 20 years that eBay's global platform has facilitated adoption by collectors at all levels from novices to asset class investors. Traditional hobbyists as well as newcomers have been quick to embrace technology. According to the new data from Stamp Market Index, more women for example, than ever before are joining the ranks of collectors. "There can be no doubt that the diversity of eBay's marketplace is manifesting itself by providing unprecedented access to previously untapped cross merchandising opportunities in all stamp, coin, and collectibles sectors, " said Joe Cortese, NobleSpirit. "The future of the stamp industry belongs to fresh ideas that can best leverage what innovation has to offer."

Online social interaction is providing a powerful new medium for new and old collectors to engage each other with their interests, while they exchange their valued stamps, coins and collectibles on eBay as their go-to marketplace destination of choice. From serendipity to acquisition, the experiential allure fundamental to collectors, at all levels, assumes many facets on eBay.

Pursue Dating uses revolutionary new algorithm to match Christians

August 19, 2019 by Anni Parita  

Pursue Dating has continued in their pursuit of creating healthy, happy Christian families as the popular dating site recently introduced a new algorithm designed to make matching more effective. The proprietary system will help the black dating site achieve the goal of helping black singles and professionals meet, connect, and find love without wasting too much of their resources in terms of time and money or meeting “incompatible” singles.

 

Dating as a Christian can be somewhat stressful, considering the level of decadence in the society. Consequently, it has become increasingly difficult for Christians, particularly black Christians to find true love that will eventually lead to a happy home. While there are several online dating and matchmaking platforms available, many of such dating sites do not particularly meet the needs of users. This is where Pursue Dating has been able to change the narrative over the years, emerging as the go-to black dating solutions provider for Christians that want to build a happy family. The recent introduction of the new matching algorithm is a further reiteration of the site’s goal of creating an amazing happily ever after story for black singles

 

Described by many as the #1 Black Christian Dating Site, the proprietary system ensure that members of the community find the most suitable companion based on their preferences. This does not only help to save time, but also goes a long way in building a strong foundation for a happy family that will not collapse in the shortest possible duration due to incompatibility.

 

The user-friendly website is easy to navigate, allowing users to sign up in a couple of minutes without having to pay a dime. Users can subsequently build their profile by uploading their photos and other such details as required. Pursue Dating allows members to see photos, interact with one another, have fun, and even meet to set up a beginning of the eventual tying of the knot.

NobleSpirit Announces the Introduction of (SMI) Powered by eBay

July 29, 2019 by Anni Parita  

NobleSpirit, the leading dealer of asset class stamps, coins and collectibles on eBay, this morning announced the introduction of Stamp Market Index (SMI), a new phase going forward in the continued dominance by eBay in the stamp market industry. NobleSpirit holds the distinction of selling many of the highest prices realized for both individual stamps and stamp collections on eBay, while eBay holds the undeniable distinction of forever changing the stamp industry landscape and maintaining its dominance in the space through sheer volume of transactions via a roster of the world's leading stamp dealers. Many of the world's most respected stamp dealers sell many 10,000s of stamps every month on eBay.

"The cataloging of real market prices realized on eBay places the Stamp Market Index in a unique position in the stamp industry," said Mark Flaa, Category Director of Arts & Collectibles at eBay. "Providing buyers and sellers the tools to more accurately transact will open the door for a new class of collectibles buyers to enter the stamp market and help cement eBay as the go-to destination for the stamp industry as a whole."

Since 1998, eBay has sold more collector and investment class stamps (many at world record prices) than all of the traditional dealer storefront, show or auction house venues have combined together in the last 100 years. The size and significance of eBay's transformative impact on all collectibles sectors is partly illuminated by the introduction of Stamp Market Index's showcase of over 200 million prices realized in stamps, made available to the stamp industry at large for the first time ever.

Stamp Market Index (SMI) is an unprecedented search tool by NobleSpirit, powered by eBay, with unprecedented data.

Boasting the largest database of stamp prices ever realized or compiled and made available to the public for free, this new resource will not only reveal the history of stamps on eBay, from this point forward SMI will now:

. provide collectors with the information necessary to establish the true market value of their stamp collections,

. provide investors with a basis to identify trends and opportunities

. provide dealers with consistent, reliable competitor and market insight into supply and demand ROI"

CBD Hemporium launches new line of CBD infused wellness drinks in the UK and worldwide

June 30, 2019 by Anni Parita  

                                    

 

In line with the company’s goal of helping people benefit from the effects of CBD, CBD Hemporium has announced the launch of their portfolio of products for the new CBD-infused drinks market. The new line of CBD tea and coffee further establishes CBD Hemporium’s position as a leading name in the CBD industry.

 

“We are the only UK Company to offer a range of CBD tea and CBD coffee beans in bulk for the coffee shop market in the UK and Europe,” says Andrew Wilson, Operations Director at CBD Hemporium. The company is looking to work with establishments who are willing to embrace this exciting and burgeoning industry adding value and margin to their business by way of offering compelling reasons for new customers to flock to their premises.

 

CBD, a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, has grown in acceptance and popularity in recent times thanks to its huge benefits. Unlike THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) is non-psychoactive, which takes away the possibility of “getting high” when consumed. Therefore, it is not surprising that the cannabidiol (CBD) market has continued to grow with a projection of the market growing by 700% by 2020 according to Forbes expectations. A report by market analysts firm, Hemp Business Journal, projects that the CBD market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020. “We can see why major brands like coca cola looking to enter the CBD infused drinks market” said Sales Director, Martin Smith.

 

Over the years, CBD Hemporium has grown to become a leading name in the CBD market in the UK and across Europe. The company is a proud member of The Cannabis Trades Association (CTA), who estimates the UK market to be worth around £60 million with 365,000 regular users, with this figure growing at an exponential rate. The CTA is a body setup to promote self regulation and transparency of the industry. The body independently lab test all their products in the UK for full transparency on the quality, efficacy and safety of their products.

Boris Johnson threatens to withhold $50 billion Brexit payment

June 27, 2019 by Anni Parita  

 

Boris Johnson is the leading candidate to succeed Theresa May as Britain’s next prime minister and has threatened to withhold $50 billion Brexit payment until the European Union gives Britain better exit terms. This is following the resignation of May as the British PM as well as stepping down as the leader of the governing Conservatives.

 

The EU has also stated severally that it will not reopen discussion with UK on the Brexit transition deal reached with May last year. Unfortunately, British lawmakers have rejected the deal three times, which led to the resignation of the prime minister.

Johnson is a former foreign secretary that served in May’s cabinet and is popular with ordinary Conservative Party members. These members will decide between the two candidates who come top in a series of votes by Conservative lawmakers over the coming weeks.

“I always thought it was extraordinary that we should agree to write that entire cheque before having a final deal. In getting a good deal, money is a great solvent and a great lubricant,” Johnson told the Sunday Times.

Britain is scheduled to leave the EU at the end of October. However, if no deal is approved and the government fails to ask the EU for another delay, there is the risk of a major economic disruption occurring from a disorderly departure.

The 39 billion pounds is the outstanding British liabilities to the EU, which would be paid over a number of years as contained in the withdrawal agreement negotiated by May. Johnson has also stated that border arrangements with Ireland should be settled only as part of a long-term agreement as against a “backstop” that would avoid checks on Northern Ireland’s border.

In another light, one of Johnson’s rivals, environment minister Michael Gove, has said that he would scrap the value-added tax (VAT) levied on most goods and services, replacing it with a lower U.S.-style sales tax.

SajidJavid is another leadership contender and he has expressed his willingness to pay Ireland hundreds of millions of pounds towards the cost of new border arrangements to facilitate a Brexit deal.

G20 finance leaders agree that trade and geopolitical tensions have heightened

June 23, 2019 by Anni Parita  

                       

 

Finance leaders from the Group of 20 (G20) ended a two-day meeting where they alluded to the fact that the trade and geopolitical tensions have intensified in recent times. The leaders at the meeting held in the western Japanese city of Fukuoka also proposed pro-growth tax policies.

According to IMF chief, Christine Lagarde, trade tension was the “major” headwind facing the global economy, and she told Japan’s Nikkei daily it was a “significant risk on the horizon.” The event was hosted by Japanese Finance Minister,Taro Aso, who also mentioned to reporters that the world economy should “firm” in the second half of the year but “downside risks still remain.”Aso further stated that “market confidence could be eroded” if China and the US did not resolve their ongoing trade conflict.

According to the French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, there was a “real risk” that “this global economic slowdown could turn into a global economic crisis due to trade tensions.”

“A worsening of the international climate and a real trade war would lead to an even more marked slowdown in global growth, with a direct impact on our jobs, companies, factories and sectors,”Bruno said.

In their final word, the finance chiefs admitted the economic headwinds amid “intensified” trade tensions. However, they expressed hope of global growth picking up moderately later in the year and into 2020.

The finance chiefs all agreed to step up efforts to reform taxes “for a globally fair, sustainable, and modern international tax system, and welcome international cooperation to advance pro-growth tax policies.”

They also admitted the fact that current account imbalances may have “narrowed” since the financial crisis in 2008 but “remain large and persistent.” They also advised that major economies tackle the topic of aging as it relates to economic growth, while encouraging women and older people into the labor market and promoting “elderly-friendly industries.” Tax systems should be designed to “better respond to the challenges posed by aging.” They also talked about designing the tax systems to “better respond to the challenges posed by aging.”

On the topic of digital currency, the G20 said the concept could “deliver significant benefits to the financial system and the broader economy,” but that “while crypto-assets do not pose a threat to global financial stability at this point, we remain vigilant to risks.”

Nearly 50% of U.S. chief financial officers predict recession within the next 12 months

June 22, 2019 by Anni Parita  

 

 

According to a survey of chief financial officers that was recently released, the longest economic expansion in the history of the U.S. could soon come to an end. The financial chiefs identified growing economic uncertainty and trade wars as their major fears, which could eventually halt the record streak of U.S. GDP growth that is only a month shy of its 10th year.

 

 

About 48% of the chief financial officers predicted that the economy could go into recession by mid-2020. This is according to the quarterly survey conducted by the Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook. Over 69% of the surveyed financial experts also predicted an economic downturn by the end of next year.

 

“It looks likely that an economic recession is on the horizon for 2020,” says John Graham, a finance professor at Duke University in a video comment.

 

The recent prediction is the third consecutive prediction from chief financial officers, which also matches other reports of a weakening U.S. economy. According to financial analysts from Morgan Stanley, a recession is possible in just nine months.

 

In what looks like a response to the predictions, the Federal Reserve has said that it is open to cutting interest rates, a move it typically does to stimulate the economy during a slowdown. This is coming after President Donald Trump called off his threatened tariffs on Mexico. The Fed had raised its benchmark rate four times last year.

 

The fear of an economic slowdown is global with a survey more than 500 CFOs across the globe revealing that CFOs in other parts of the world were more likely than those in the U.S. to predict a downturn in their countries within a year.

 

A whopping 85% of African CFOs believe that their countries will be in recession before the end of 2020. Sixty-three percent of the counterparts in Europe, 57% of Asian CFOs and 52% of Latin American CFOs also had the same belief.

 

“For the first time in a decade,” Graham said, “no region of the world appears to be on solid enough economic footing to be the engine that pulls the global economy upward.”
