In times of trouble, investors instinctively race off in search of safe havens, and that is exactly what happened after President Donald Trump ordered the killing of Iranian general Qassem Suleimani in Iraq.Run for coverCue a spike in the price of gold, the crypto-currency Bitcoin, and the Japanese yen. All are seen as financial boltholes in their different ways – gold is an ancient store of value, Bitcoin offers shelter when traditional assets are under pressure, and the Japanese yen is a rock solid currency because of the country’s solid current account surplus.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…By contrast, investors flee stock markets when geopolitical problems strike. The FTSE 100 ended Monday down 0.64%, while the FTSE 250 was off more than 1%.The US-Iran stand-off scared away short-term traders; they will wait to see how and when Iran will retaliate, and whether it does something drastic like attempt to close the Strait of Hormuz to shipping. Almost a fifth of the world’s oil passes through the Strait, some 17.2m barrels per day, and closing this could inflict further turmoil on markets.The uncertainty isn’t hitting every stock, though. As Brent crude shot through $70 a barrel, FTSE 100 oil giant BP climbed more than 2% on Monday, while FTSE 250 listed energy services business Wood Group jumped almost 4%.Play the long gameStock market traders are by nature a jumpy bunch, as they try to capitalise on short-term market movements, but investors must ignore short-term threats, whether economic or geopolitical, and keep their eyes on the long-term prize, which is to tap into the greater long-term growth capacity of stocks and shares to build wealth for their future.If you are investing for 20, 30, 40 years or more, events like these will one day be a mere blip. You need to keep your money exposed to the winning combination of share price growth and in particular, dividend payouts, and ignore political noise like this.It’s time in the market that matters, not timing the market, as the old investment saying puts it. Any investor who is so nervy that they sold off their holdings because of recent political events probably shouldn’t have been in the market in the first place.Home from homeThe unpredictability of stock markets was seen in 2019, when investors started the year in a gloomy mood and ended on an unexpected high. The FTSE 100 ended last year more than 10% higher, while in the US, the S&P 500 index climbed more than 25%.Markets may struggle to repeat the trick this year, so I would advise looking for buying opportunities in the shape of a market dip. Who knows, we may see one over the next few days.If further geopolitical uncertainty does knock investor sentiment and share prices, I would forget gold, Bitcoin, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc and cash. Despite their vaunted ‘safe’ status they don’t cut it for me in the longer run.Screw up your courage, and buy shares instead. In the longer run, they should deliver a far superior total return, which makes them a far better home for your long-term wealth, whatever happens on the political stage.

The highest U.S. crude oil exports to China in 11 months lifted total seaborne U.S. crude oil exports to a record high at 11.9 million tonnes in June 2019, according to shipping association BIMCO.Also contributing to the June record was South Korea, as exports to the other main Far Eastern buyer reached an all-time high volume of 2.3 million tonnes.Between June 1 and June 30, 1.2 million tonnes were shipped to China, up from 1 million tonnes in May and worlds apart from no exports at all in the months of August through October in 2018 and again in January 2019.“From being a very consistent and significant buyer of U.S. crude oil until the trade war changed it all, China was back above a million tonnes in June 2019,” Peter Sand, BIMCO’s Chief Shipping Analyst, said.“As China stopped buying in August 2018, South Korea became the number 1 destination for U.S. seaborne crude oil, taking 1.5 million tonnes on average per month in 2019, and setting a record of 2.3 million tonnes in June 2019.“From a shipping perspective, long-haul exports to Asia are great. As China retreated last year, India, Taiwan, Japan and Singapore stepped up alongside South Korea to keep the very long sailing distances around. Tonne mile demand was also record high in June.”South Korea took over as main destinationTaking 2.3 million tonnes of crude oil from the U.S. in June, meant that South Korea was the main destination, buying 19% of total seaborne U.S. crude oil exports in that month, BIMCO noted.Even though it isn’t crude oil of the same characteristics, the growth in South Korean imports from the U.S. comes at a time when it’s been cutting its imports from Iran significantly. South Korean imports from Iran are down from 1.2 million tonnes in March to zero in May and June, the shipping association cited official statistics.The same goes for India, which imported an average of 1.3 million tonnes in March through June from the U.S., while cutting its Iranian imports sharply from 1.4 million tonnes in March and April to zero in June. India used to be Iran’s second largest buyer of crude oil after China.“Despite growing tonne mile demand, crude oil tanker earnings have generally been lossmaking so far in 2019,” Sand explained.

“In particular Laura Soukeroff and Chelsie Van Brynen (both Grade 12s) who had limited roles last year but are now feeling more comfortable on the floor and are recognizing that as Grade 12s this is their time to take charge,” Moreira added.Immaculata finished on top of the table following round robin play and easily disposed of J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks of Trail 2-0 in one semi final.Meanwhile Mount Sentinel took second after pool play. The Cats defeated Kootenay rival Selkirk Storm of Kimberley during the round robin, then knocked off the Bavarian City squad in the other semi final, this time 15-13 in the third game of the match.“We had three important victories,” Moreira explained. “We beat Selkirk twice, both very close and in three sets, and also beat Fernie. Both teams are solid and athletic and we need to beat them both to advance to provincials.”Fernie finished fifth in the tournament followed by A.L. Fortune of Enderby and Osoyoos.Mount Sentinel has little time to relax as the team travels to Kelowna to compete in the UBC/O High School Volleyball tournament.“We sill have lots of work ahead of us to compete with the really good teams in the province,” Moreira explained. “At the moment “slow and steady” is a good pace for us (because) without Grade 11’s on the team we must rely on our Grade 10’s to play beyond their level of maturity.”RALLY POINT: Immaculata, currently second in the B.C. High School A Girl’s Volleyball rankings, may jump into the number one slot. Selkirk will most likely drop down the table from seventh to ninth while the Wildcats of Mount Sentinel could move into eighth [email protected] By Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson DailyThe weekend saw the Mount Sentinel Wildcats move up the competitive ladder, just not enough to capture the overall title at the Kootenay Volleyball Classic Saturday in South Slocan.Immaculata defeated the host Cats 2-1 (25-16, 23-25, 15-8) to claim the overall High School Girl’s Volleyball tournament at the Mount Sentinel gymnasium.“(This) was a good weekend for us,” said Sentinel coach Joe Moreira. “We had important contributions from a number of players who are beginning to play with more confidence.”
