While the current trend may not lead to recession, he emphasized the importance of gauging the strength of the overall market in light of the January jobs report. He pointed out that housing led the last couple of recessions. Speaking of personal income and wages, Detmeister indicated that employment numbers show that part of the economy is doing well, however, there is a noticeable hesitance among consumers to purchase houses. In this video, Detmeister and John Lynch, Chief Investment strategist at LPL Financial, discuss the cracks in the consumer story as well as the impact of factors such as declining mortgage rates and tax cuts on real estate and overall housing prices.

ODDSbible kickstarts the new Tipster Challenge at Chester

first_img After a slight pause, the Tipster Challenge is back with a bang this week for the Flat Season. However, there is a slight twist for the competition, which continues to be sponsored by Betting Gods.Starting today at Chester, our experts will still be submitting tips for each race at a chosen Wednesday meet. Yet they will also be asked to confirm a ‘Nap of the Day’, which scores double points.Joining bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris at Chester is Alex Donohue. Formerly the PR Manager at Ladbrokes, Donohue has joined the LADbible Group by taking up the position of Brand Partnerships Manager within the company’s ODDSbible division.The Jump Season Tipster Challenge for 2016/17 was won by AppBet’s Sarah Shannon, with Betway’s Alan Alger second and Easyodds’ Jacob Johns coming in third place.____________________________________1:50bettingexpert: Requinto DawnHas posted two useful efforts and is better drawn than his serious rival on form.ODDSbible: Big Time MaybeCrack Chester jockey and trainer duo can land this race despite the wide draw. Prepared to take a chance at draw-affected price on the basis Kingscote bounces out of the wide gate and remains handy.____________________________________2:25bettingexpert: Enable (Nap of the Day)John Gosden’s 3yo shaped well when third to a well backed stablemate on her seasonal debut (run checked when cruising and not given a hard time by any means). She is open to improvement after just two career starts and now has Dettori taking over in the saddle.ODDSbible: EnableO’Brien can’t win them all (he probably can) so hoping Enable strikes for another set of connections in great form. The fact that Gosden pitches her for this race despite bare form on offer may be a tip.____________________________________3:00bettingexpert: ConfessionalShaped well in defeat a few times last season and has loads of early pace to aim at in the closing stages (both stalls 1 and 2 confirmed trailblazers).ODDSbible: TaexaliAlways enjoy seeing these colours pop up on courses up and down the country and it looks like Thistle Bloodstock may have found a winnable race on this occasion if the horse can find a little bit from a good draw.____________________________________3:35bettingexpert: MontalyLost his form but returns here on a handy mark, will love the ground/extreme test of stamina at Chester and has a great draw in two to work from.ODDSbible: Fun MacA unique race and a spectacle I’ve always enjoyed watching but not necessarily betting on over the years. Plenty of runners which would be good stories and from a sporting perspective I’d love to see Golden Spear win, but I think there could be a few hard luck tales so I’ll take a chance on Fun Mac staying on from the back at a big price.____________________________________4:05bettingexpert: Here And NowHas looked promising on all three starts and should get a good early position from stall one.ODDSbible: Stradivarius (Nap of the Day)Wins with ease en route to bigger and better things at Ascot. Simple!____________________________________4:35bettingexpert: Never SurrenderShould appreciate fast ground at this unique Chester track if Jamie Spencer can navigate a clear passage.ODDSbible: Bristol MissileThis race could turn out to be a good maiden and there are plenty of interesting runners, but I’ll side with Richard Hannon’s expensive and well-bred runner on the basis that the level of improvement expected and hoped for would be enough to win today.____________________________________5:05bettingexpert: Zapper CassHas joined an astute small yard and looks overpriced from a good draw if ready to go after five months on the sidelines.ODDSbible: Gabrial The TigerGood course form which counts for plenty round here and it wouldn’t be Chester without a winner for Dr Marwan. Useful claimer booked and likely to be a very fair price.____________________________________ Betway and Dafabet grow La Liga sponsorship portfolios August 14, 2020 Submit StumbleUpon Related Articles Share ESI Digital – No Drama Please… Esports growth should be treated as business as usual  August 20, 2020 Share Real Betis selects Betway as its official shirt sponsor August 10, 2020last_img read more
