Chancellor's looser finance targets highlight weaker UK economy - The Guardian

There was a veneer of discipline in the chancellors handling of the UKs public finances, after he ditched his predecessors strict target of balancing the budget in 2020 with three looser targets to be met in the next parliament.

Philip Hammond opted to set a cap on welfare spending, but only applied the new rule from the 2021/22 financial year. He also said the governments new aim was to bring down debt as a proportion of GDP by 2021, which George Osborne had hoped would happen under his watch.

The targets are more than five years into the future, and confirm it will take three parliaments to nurse the public finances back to health, after it became clear that a weaker economy,

7 Big Stocks to Trade in the Wake of Brexit - TheStreet.com

Here's a technical look at how to trade seven stocks that were seeing big trading volume on Friday following the Brexit vote.

SPDR S&P 500 ETF



Nearest Resistance: $213 Nearest Support: $202.50 Catalyst: Brexit Vote

Leading off the list of the most active stocks in U.S. markets last week was the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) . As the go-to proxy for "the stock market," it's not surprising that SPY was the most heavily traded issue on the NYSE to end the week. The big ETF (like the big index itself) shed nearly 3.7% during the session on Friday, making it one of the worst day for stocks in almost a year -- and the worst day in some individual sectors over a much longer timeframe.

Technically speaking, though, SPY looks down, but not yet out. That's because SPY is catching a bid at trend line support, the price floor that's connected all of the major lows that the big index has posted since March. If that support level gets violated in the week ahead, it's a bearish signal. That said, if SPY can catch a bid here at support, consider it a buying opportunity.

The LP, which is managed by the Company, will invest alongside Norvista on a pro rata basis in qualifying investments. Norvista and the LP invested in the recent, oversubscribed $2,000,000 equity financing by Nevada Zinc Corporation which closed on March 31, 2016. The LP, under the management of Norvista, will use the net proceeds from the Financing to invest in both public and private companies engaged in the exploration and development of base and precious metal projects in the junior resource sector and for general working capital purposes.

The Company also announces effective today that the board of directors of Norvista have granted a total 1,775,000 stock options to certain officers and directors pursuant to the Company's incentive stock option plan.

About Norvista

Norvista is a resource based merchant bank that began operations and was listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in June of 2014. The Company's strategy is to capitalize on the significant asset value contraction that has occurred over the last several years in the resource industry, with particular emphasis on base metal projects. Norvista focuses its efforts on the pursuit of highly prospective exploration projects while balancing exploration risk through investment in small to mid-scale, pre-production, opportunities requiring partial or full completion of feasibility studies. The Company takes a proactive role with its investee companies and in the majority of cases assumes management or advisory roles and/or seats on the board of directors of these companies. Management is of the view that current market conditions allow the Company to significantly mitigate political and country risk by pursuing investments in some of the world's top ranked mining jurisdictions.
