Copper Shines, Gold Struggles as Investors Chase Riskier Assets SPONSOR: Candente Copper $DNT.ca $CN.ca $FCX.ca $TECK.ca $FSUGY $PER.ca

  • Industrial metal boosted by China’s economic rebound and ‘green stimulus’ expectations

(Bloomberg) — Copper powered to a seven-year high as the rush for growth played out in metals markets, with traditional haven gold dropping amid growing optimism for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.

Bullion extended losses below $1,800 an ounce and copper added to a four-week surge on bets the looming roll-out of Covid-19 vaccines will help drive an economic recovery. The moves deepen a wider pivot into risk assets in November, with global stocks heading for a record month.

“Robust price rallies in industrial commodities like copper point to an ongoing rotation from a risk-averse to risk-on asset market regime,” Citigroup Inc. analysts including Aakash Doshi wrote in an emailed note. Gold faces a “more uncertain path in 2021” as global growth prospects improve, they said.

The latest boost for risk appetite came over the weekend, when two of America’s top health officials said a vaccine will be deployed across the U.S. before the end of the year. Elsewhere, an index of China’s manufacturing sector rose to a three-year high on Monday and the country is taking steps to boost domestic consumption, including of autos and home appliances.

“Macro factors are driving copper trading,” Chinese brokerage Jinrui Futures Co. wrote in note on Monday. “The market sentiment is really bullish right now amid a combination of vaccines, economic recovery, and a smooth U.S. presidential transition.”

  • Copper rose as much as 2.6% to $7,692.50 a ton, the highest since March 2013. The metal traded at $7,634 by 9:55 a.m. London time and is heading for the biggest monthly gain since 2016.
  • Iron ore also joined the rally, with Singapore futures up 1.3% and heading for a monthly gain of more than 11%. Prices briefly spiked more than 9% to touch $140 a ton, the highest since futures began trading in 2013, before swiftly paring gains.
  • Gold fell 0.8% to $1,773.59 an ounce, on track for a fourth straight monthly loss. Silver dropped 1.8%.

Bullion is suffering as investors reverse this year’s hunt for havens amid deep economic ruptures and a fractious U.S. general election. But other factors that favor gold — ultra-dovish monetary policy and the risk of steeper inflation — remain in place.

”The current weakness of gold is all the more remarkable given that the U.S. dollar is likewise weak,” Carsten Fritsch, an analyst at Commerzbank AG, said in an emailed note. “After the price fell below the support level at $1,800 on Friday, the technical picture became even more gloomy, which no doubt has prompted further short-term-oriented investors to withdraw.”

VIDEO – Aurora Cannabis Founder, Terry Booth, Is Taking Binovi $VISN.ca $BNVIF Vision Therapy To Young Children All Over The Planet $EYPT $KALA $PTON

Binovi Technologies (VISN:TSXV) is a Vision Therapy and Training Company that goes well beyond fixing eyes that simply can’t read letters on an eye chart. That’s what your optometrist does when they prescribe glasses.

What Binovi does is far more exciting and groundbreaking. Without getting scientific, Binovi delivers higher performing brains by optimizing the performance of your eyes.  The result is a faster brain through stronger eyes, which creates quite the edge for the world’s best athletes and explains why their client list includes:

  • Dallas Stars (NHL)
  • Chicago Cubs (MLB)
  • Sporting KC (MLS)
  • Tennis Canada
  • Showcased During NFL Scouting Combine
  • Eli Wilson Goaltending – The World Leader In Hockey Goaltending Development

BUT EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN, TERRY BOOTH, HAS A DIFFERENT AND BIGGER VISION (PARDON THE PUN) FOR BINOVI – GLOBAL CHILDREN

When Terry’s daughter was 1 years old, she developed eye problems that could only be treated by patching –  something he says would be considered “barbaric” today.  Terry discovered that 1 in 4 kids (not a typo) have vision problems beyond those treatable by an optometrist.  This was a global, epidemic without a solution that often leads to kids losing critical learning time and self-confidence by Grade 3.  

Fast Forward 30 years and Terry finally found the solution – Binovi – but not before he and his science team put CEO Adam Cegielski and the Company through the ringer.  When the due diligence was complete, Terry Booth was all in with ~ $500,000 of his own money now invested, plus more from his network.  Most importantly, he’s bringing his entire science, government and finance network to the table to bring Binvoi to children around the world.

We all remember the crash of “blockchain” smallcap stocks a couple of years back, which was actually a crash of blockchain pretenders who used the term to build stock promotions, as opposed to building actual blockchains.  

Like the dot-com crash of 2000, which bankrupted “dot-com” companies but gave birth to the likes of Google, Amazon, Linkedin because they built actual utility and value, the same can be expected of the blockchain crash and its resurgence.

Blockchain Foundry is a “Blockchain 2.0” company that has survived and is thriving. More than just lip service, take a look at the following highlights:   

  • Revenue for 9 months of 2020  (ending Sept 30) ~$1.1M 
    • 113% Year Over Year Growth
    • Net Income $140,000 = $610,000 Improvement
  • Completed development agreement with a large Canadian financial institution valued at approximately C$400,000; 
  • Partnered with Binance, the largest digital asset trading platform in the world, to leverage the Syscoin platform. 
  • 5 Active Clients + Robust Pipeline

Conclusion – BCFN is a smallcap Blockchain company with Real Customers, Real Revenues and Real Income

  • On October 15th, Loop announced the significant milestone of having been accepted into the TELUS IoT Marketplace .
  • The Company’s first product accepted into the IoT Marketplace was our venue tracing service, which has received significant exposure to many of TELUS’s largest customers and significant ongoing discussions with them.
  • The third-party validation that came with this acceptance has been instrumental in Loop’s venue tracing discussions with large corporate customers worldwide.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 03, 2020 — Loop Insights Inc. (MTRX:TSXV; RACMF:OTCBQ) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive real-time insights, enhanced customer engagement, and automated venue tracing to the brick and mortar space, is pleased to announce the launch of a second product into the Telus IoT Marketplace (T:TSX; TU:NYSE), which will serve to significantly expand Loop’s sales distribution channels on a national scale.

On October 15th, Loop announced the significant milestone of having been accepted into the TELUS IoT Marketplace . The Company’s first product accepted into the IoT Marketplace was our venue tracing service, which has received significant exposure to many of TELUS’s largest customers and significant ongoing discussions with them. The third-party validation that came with this acceptance has been instrumental in Loop’s venue tracing discussions with large corporate customers worldwide.

LOOP’S SECOND PRODUCT IS ITS INSIGHTS SERVICE AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE INSIGHTS PORTAL USED IN PILOT ACROSS 3 TELUS FLAGSHIP RETAIL LOCATIONS

On September 17th, Loop announced an agreement with TELUS to conduct a 90-day proof of concept pilot across TELUS’s three flagship corporate retail locations in British Columbia.

TELUS deployed Loop’s Insights service, which consists of our IoT Fobi device, Loop Cloud API, and AI Insights Portal to test and leverage its automated marketing capabilities. Connected between the printer and point of sale, Loop’s Fobi device’s real-time capabilities are driven by Artificial Intelligence to enhance the shopping experience. Providing data-driven product suggestions and unique discount codes for future use, Loop enables TELUS’s customers to increase revenues through increased spend per customer.

The first goal of the Pilot, assuming a successful completion, was for Loop to achieve exponential scale through a channel reseller distribution partnership for our Insights service with TELUS, which has now been achieved. This acceptance into the TELUS IoT Marketplace provides Loop with national sales and marketing exposure to TELUS business customers. As a result of this announcement, TELUS will generate creditable third-party validation and credibility for our go-to-market strategy.

Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated, “To be recognized by TELUS for our now second IoT product designation into their IoT Marketplace is of huge significance given the fact they are clearly one of the most advanced IoT solutions providers in the world. Their sales and marketing support will be invaluable in commercializing and distributing our technology to TELUS customers across Canada, as will their third party validation by providing us with even greater strength when speaking to potential IoT customers around the world.”

Andrew Turner, TELUS VP Strategic Operations stated, “At TELUS, we are always looking to deliver leading IoT solutions to our valued business customers. It is excellent to see early-stage Canadian companies such as Loop Insights succeeding. After first successfully launching Loops venue tracing and management service on the TELUS IoT Marketplace, we are excited to deliver their Insights service. Now with two Loop services on our TELUS IoT Marketplace, we are eager to see where we evolve from here.”

TELUS launched the TELUS IoT Marketplace to help Canadian businesses accelerate the adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) tech. The marketplace is designed to allow businesses to quickly deploy IoT solutions while acting as a lead generation and sales channel for developers. TELUS has also committed its sales and marketing teams to provide support.

Loop takes the guesswork out of decision making with its Insights service. Businesses receive real-time updates on how their company is performing online, on-premise, and between properties.

The second goal of the Pilot is a rollout of our Insights service to all TELUS corporate stores. Loop will provide an update on this when it becomes available.

On November 4th, Loop announced the successful completion of a 20 location pilot with a leading US-based retailer, resulting in a rollout to 550 locations .

CANADIAN IoT MARKET TO HIT $21.8 BILLION BY 2023

The importance of this TELUS IoT Marketplace distribution channel to Loop is critical and timely, given the growth of IoT in Canada over just the next couple of years. IoT Investment in Canada alone is growing exponentially, which will require companies and organizations to make fast decisions with respect to solutions. Our TELUS recognition and acceptance will make it much easier for those decision-makers to chose Loop.

Nigel Wallis, Vice President, Internet of Things and Industries at IDC Canada stated, “In Canada alone, IDC anticipates that the total IoT market will grow To $21.8 billion in 2023. While organizations are investing in hardware, software, and services to support their IoT initiatives, their next challenge is finding solutions that help them manage, process, and analyze the data being generated from all these connected things.”

Facebook and other tech giants showed the world that sharing our private data and profiting from it is a major issue.  It became such a major issue that sweeping laws have been enacted in Europe (GDPR) and the United States (CCPA) that not only puts a stop to these practices but also demand that individuals are given the opportunity to take control of their digital identities – and even profit from them.

The term is often referred to as “Self Sovereign Identity (SSI)” and though it sounds kind of complicated, it actually sounds like music to the ears of investors that want to learn more about this massive global trend.

CBD oil is one of the active ingredients in skincare products that help to manage everything from wrinkles to acne. But is this hemp or marijuana extract as effective as touted? Does it offer any benefits, or is it marketing hype? Below are the facts about CBD gummies and CBD skincare that you need to know.

What Is CBD Oil?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating compound found in hemp and marijuana plants, extracted in powder form. It is then processed with oil like coconut or olive to enhance its effectiveness as a skincare oil product.

CBD oil made for skincare will not evoke the “high” associate with its counterpart compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). While both CBD and THC can be found in hemp and marijuana plants, the hemp plant has a higher CBD and lower THC content than marijuana. At times the THC is so low that it not detectable during testing.

You should not mistake hemp-based CBD oil for hemp seed oil, another effective ingredient found in skincare products. At times, the two are marketed interchangeably, but the CBD oil has a high cannabidiol concentration while hemp seed oil has trace amounts or none.

The FDA regulated the name “CBD” used on products that claim to contain cannabidiol to state the same on the label. The regulated labeling is known as INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients). Therefore, products with names, such as CBD-enriched hemp seed oil, might not contain cannabidiol. You can be confident of what you buy is as specified on its label.

CBD For Acne-Prone Skin

According to research, acne is an inflammatory skin condition that could be triggered by various factors. Hence, some people can develop this inflammatory condition because of something they apply or even consume. Studies show that anything that can reduce the swelling and soothe the skin can help manage or treat acne. That is where CBD becomes an alternative solution that can fight the breakouts.

Research shows that CBD oil has anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial to skin health. As such, CBD can be an active ingredient in skincare products that help treat or manage acne and other related breakouts. It is an ideal option for people with reactive skin.

CBD has been found to potentially lower sebum production, which is a unique quality that can help balance the sebum flow in the skin. But with this encouraging news, scientists still say that more studies are needs for conclusive findings that confirm the full extent of CBD’s benefits in skincare and overall health and wellness.

CBD Oil For Wrinkles And Anti-Aging

Since CBD oil is plant-derived produce, thus, it having antioxidative abilities should not be surprising. The antioxidants can help reduce the signs and impacts associated with aging. The properties counteract free-radicals therein, reducing any inflammation while diminishing noticeable signs like reddish skin tone, wrinkles, and dullness.

With other antioxidant-rich products in the market, it is unwise to claim that CBD is the best option out there. It is one of the many options worth considering if you are keen on finding a safe and better solution to caring for your skin.

CBD Oil For Sensitive Skin

CBD oil is claimed to have soothing compounds since it has been found to have skin-normalizing and skin-calming effects. Such properties are essential in treating and managing skin sensitivity and other related issues like inflammation, reactivity, and redness. With the skin exposed to the elements, different skin types are affected differently by environmental stressors. By applying CBD oil, its soothing mechanism will help keep the skin in check.
