Enter Your Email Address Image: Argo Blockchain The Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) share price remains significantly off the record closing peaks of 284p hit in mid-February. It’s been on a rollercoaster ride this week too, due to fresh volatility on cryptocurrency markets.Bitcoin prices plunged back below $50,000 on Thursday (more on this later) and even fell to around $47,650 at one point. This is some way off the record peaks north of $63,500 struck just three months ago. However, cryptocurrency prices have recovered ground since then, pulling the Argo Blockchain share price with it. What can we expect this UK tech share to do next?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Argo Blockchain shares on the rebound?There are several reasons why the Argo Blockchain share price could soar again:#1: Banker interest in Bitcoin keeps growing. Some of Wall Street’s biggest banks continue to ramp up their interest in the digital currency sphere. Goldman Sachs carried out its first digital currency trades last week, and a number of other banks are preparing to dip their toes into the water too. This bodes well for Bitcoin prices and, by extension, profits at Argo Blockchain. Growing bank interest over the past 12 months has improved the credibility of crypto assets for many investors, boosting crypto values in the process.#2: Concerns over energy usage grow. Fears over how much energy is required to mine cryptocurrencies continue to balloon. However, concerns over the environmental impact of the likes of Bitcoin could counter-intuititively boost the Argo Blockchain share price. This is because the company has put the use of renewable energy sources high on its list of priorities. It’s a strategy that could stand it in good stead as the importance of responsible investing grows. Incidentally, the business signed up to the Crypto Climate Accord this week. This directive is intended “to promote the decarbonisation of the cryptocurrency industry.”  Tesla says no!It’s quite possible that the Argo Blockchain share price could continue climbing in the short term. But I’m afraid my discomfort over cryptocurrencies as an enduring asset class continues to dampen my appetite for this UK tech share.As I said earlier, Bitcoin prices crashed again this week. It plummeted because Tesla head Elon Musk announced he was reversing his decision to allow customers to buy his company’s vehicles using Bitcoin on environmental grounds. Similar reversals from other blue-chip firms that have rushed into accepting cryptoassets over the past year could lead to additional crypto price plunges.Besides this, the acceptance of cryptocurrencies as a legitimate asset class by lawmakers remains elusive. This week, Bank of England governor Andrew Bailey warned again that digital currencies have “no intrinsic value.” Meanwhile, the Securities and Exchange Commission in the US punted the launch of a Bitcoin-backed exchange-traded fund (ETF) further down the road.Cryptocurrencies could well prove to be the hottest asset class of the 21st century. But I’m not prepared to take a risk with my money at the moment. I’m happy to ignore recent dips in the Argo Blockchain share price and buy other UK shares.

Once the most densely populated place in the world, housing more than 6,000 people on an island less than one square kilometre in size (as Mitsubishi mined coal), it has been uninhabited for more than 40 years.

The mortgage production portion of the consumer banking segment grew by 8 percent up to $20.6 billion during the second quarter.Mortgage production includes first mortgage and home equity originations; the amount represents unpaid principal balance in the case of loans and the principal amount of the total line of credit in the case of home equity originations.The noninterest income portion of consumer banking dropped over-the-year from $2.71 billion down to $2.58 billion due to lower mortgage banking income, lower service charges, and the impact of certain divestiture, according to the report. The mortgage banking income in particular took a hit in Q2, falling over-the-year from $639 million in Q2 2015 all the way down to $44 million in Q2 2016 (it was $242 million in Q1 2016).Bank of America’s Chief Financial Officer, Paul Donofrio, said there were four items that caused the year-over-year decline in net income for the bank as well as the drop in mortgage banking income.“First, we sold an appraisal business last year, so there was revenue in last year’s second quarter that isn’t in this quarter,” Donofrio said. “Second, we had some servicing sales in the second quarter of last year for a gain that we didn’t have this quarter.”What will Bank of America’s earnings hold for Q3? Find out on Monday, October 17th at 8:30 A.M. EST.Thursday, October 20—Existing-Home Sales for September 2016, NARThe National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported a decline in the pace of existing-home sales for the second consecutive month in August, down to an annual rate of 5.33 million. The industry will see how existing-home sales fared in September when the NAR publishes the September 2016 report on Thursday, October 20.With affordability being a concern in some markets because of price appreciation outpacing wage growth and job gains, on the surface it seems like existing-home sales are down after hitting a post-crisis peak in June.But when compared with historical averages, things don’t look so bad for existing-home sales, according to NAR’s August 2016 EHS Over Ten Years report. The report showed that the total number of homes sold nationwide in August 2016 was higher than the 10-year August average, as was the total number of homes in all four regions.“Comparing August of 2006 to August of 2016 fewer homes were sold in 2016 in the US and all regions, the Northeast enduring the biggest decline of 51.4 percent,” said Michael Hyman of NAR. “The U.S. had a drop of 18.9 percent while the West had the smallest drop in sales at 8.3 percent over the 10-year period.”This week’s scheduleMonday, October 17Bank of America Q3 earnings reportTuesday, October 18Goldman Sachs Q3 earnings reportComerica Q3 earnings reportHousing Market Index for October 2016, National Association of Homebuilders, 10 a.m. ESTWednesday, October 19Morgan Stanley Q3 earnings reportU.S. Bancorp Q3 earnings reportHousing Starts for September 2016, HUD/Census Bureau, 8:30 a.m. ESTThursday, October 20BNY Mellon Q3 earnings reportExisting-Home Sales for September 2016, National Association of Realtors, 10 a.m. ESTFriday, October 21SunTrust Q3 earnings report The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post About Author: Kendall Baer Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more
