· *Risk-on mood weighs on traditional safe-havens.*
· *Nasdaq Composite adds more than 2% on Thursday.*
· *US Dollar Index surges to its highest level in more than two months.*
The XAU/USD pair, once again, failed to preserve its bullish momentum above the $1230 mark on Thursday and turned negative in the NA session as the improving market sentiment made it difficult for the precious metal to find demand. As of writing, the pair was losing $5, or 0.4%, on the day at $1229.

Additionally, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 indexes were last seen up 1.5% and 1.7%, respectively.
On the other hand, with today's ECB meeting reminding investors of the diverging monetary policies between the Fed and other major central banks, the US Dollar Index extended its march north and touched its highest level since mid-August at 96.68 to reveal a broadly stronger greenback.

AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
Pacific Shore Stones is pleased to announce their participation in the 63rd Annual Parade of Homes in Austin.

Materials including marble, quartzite, Neolith and quartz from Pacific Shore Stones are featured in the kitchens of the homes by Aluxa Custom Homes and Glazier Homes.
In the Aluxa Custom Home, three different materials from Pacific Shore Stones were selected for the open-plan kitchen: Calacatta Paonazzo marble, Calacatta Gold marble, and Neolith Calacatta Gold (a man-made sintered surface). The interior designer was Melissa Clement Designs, with installation by Hector Bravo from Premier Granite Solutions. The realtors selling the house are Jarah Bergmann and Tina Domino. The hilltop transitional home features sky views in every room, and is designed for comfort, entertainment and functional living. The lot was selected for its topography and privacy, allowing for an expansive outdoor experience at all three of its levels.
In the Glazier Home, Bianco Superiore quartzite and Calacatta Santorini Pacshore Quartz from Pacific Shore Stones were chosen for the kitchen countertops and island which were fabricated by Annie Doyle and Ruben Castillo at Phoenix Stone and Laminate. The one-story Scandinavian Farmhouse is a one-of-a-kind entertainer’s paradise. The house was intentionally designed to make the most of the rare views only available in the Texas Hill Country. Jared Glazier, of Glazier Homes, won Best Kitchen for the house, a 2018 Excellence Award presented by The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin.
Also featured in the Parade of Homes this year are homes by Hill Country Artisan and Vogel Builders.

The AHA Joins A 55+ Active Lifestyle Community And Italy Tour Company To Raise Awareness About Heart Health Through An Event That Celebrates Life on Nov. 3rd
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
Exclusive Italy travel specialist, Nada's Italy will put a different spin on its annual traveler appreciation event, focusing on wellness and heart health: two things that Italians are great ambassadors of. This year the celebration will be hosted by Trilogy Lake Norman, a luxury 55+ active lifestyle community, and joining the venue is The American Heart Association. This Italian-themed event is to inspire attendees to engage in a healthy lifestyle, the essential key to being able to explore the world and live life to the fullest, all concepts that are strongly promoted by Trilogy Lake Norman, Nada's Italy, and the AHA alike.
Nada's Italy was started by Italian-born Nada Vergili, an expat from Florence who moved to the USA and developed the business in 2004 with a strong passion for sharing her culture with the American public. She coined an intriguing slogan "Tours for people who don't go on tours.", catering to active adult travelers wanting to experience Italy in a more intimate, stress-free, relaxed way, without the high-paced structured schedules of large-scale tours. As many of Nada's clients are in the retirement age, partnering with active lifestyle communities to educate residents on the benefits of traveling at all stages of life seemed like a natural fit. The AHA shares in that vision, as their corporate mission is "to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives."
Trilogy®, a division of Shea Homes®, offers full-service, resort-style communities where sporting activities, social events, live concerts, classes, culinary experiences, and affinity clubs encourage residents to have fun every day and connect with those around them. In the beginning of 2018, Trilogy® brought Nada's Italy as a preferred partner into its exclusive nationwide travel program Explore 360, dedicated to those who never stop learning and exploring.
Nada's intention for this special event is to join like-minded individuals under one roof and share a taste of the Italian way of life, while raising awareness about the importance of prevention and taking care of one's heart. Nada's Italy will donate a portion of profits from the night to The American Heart Association. Nada invites those with a passion for philanthropy and travel to join her for this momentous occasion. The event is on Saturday, November 3rd from 3pm - 6pm and is free to attend.

· *EUR/GBP bulls remain in control, extending the bullish reversal from the 0.8720s as sterling takes a knock across the board while the dollar digs its heels in on a solid footing of the 96 **handle** and trades at its highest since August.*
· *ECB leaves its policy rate unchanged and reduced monthly QE purchases to $15 billion until the end of the year - Draghi recognized economic weakness, eurozone fragility, but expecting the underlying inflation to pick up towards the end of the year. *
· *"GBP is subject to more intense pressure running into year-end as the time for achieving a workable Brexit deal is now running very short," analysts at Scotiabank.*
EUR/GBP has been in a steady rising channel for the month of October, correcting the late summertime sell-off from a pip or so from the 0.91 handle, currently capped by the Weekly 21-SMA at 0.8878, having scored a high on Thursday in early NY of 0.8883.
The pair is fulled by continued Brexit angst, even though it seems that PM May has perhaps done enough to fend off a leadership challenge, for now. The saga goes on and some are even speculating that a proposed extension to the transition period under May's leadership and subsequent of weak negotiations will drag on forever, well almost forever - warning of a “long-running” multi-year transition. Also, the risks of a no deal seem still very much realistic - UK Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said today that the risk of no deal is real if the EU engages in an intransigent approach.
· *Draghi speech: Still confident that good common sense solution will be found for Brexit*
"We continue to feel that the GBP is subject to more intense pressure running into year-end as the time for achieving a workable Brexit deal is now running very short," analysts at Scotiabank argued.
*ECB left monetary policy unchanged but warns of risks*
Meanwhile, the ECB left monetary policy unchanged at its meeting today, as widely expected but the euro dropped on the back of Draghi's negative affirmation surrounding the risks imposed by Italy and that the monetary union was fragile, despite still expecting that underlying inflation will rise, and for the most part sticking to script. "We expect the ECB will underscore that asset purchases will end in Dec but the characterization of the economic outlook (which the president has said is “broadly balanced”) amid rising challenges may shape market expectations regarding when interest rates may rise (we assume H2 2019)," analysts at Scotiabank explained.
"With the US growing almost twice as fast as the EU, the Fed two years into rate normalization which the ECB has no plans to begin, and Italy and Brexit chipping away at European unity, the euro is set up for a fourth quarter swoon,"

Maximo Marina continues to be the largest covered boat slip marina in Florida, boasting covered wet slips for vessels up to 100 feet in length.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
IGY Marinas, announced today the $25 million renovation at Maximo Marina in St. Petersburg, Florida is complete. IGY has overseen all aspects of design, redevelopment and operations of the marina since 2015, on behalf of the owner, Bixby Bridge Capital, a private real estate investor and lender. The marina was completely redeveloped over the last 18 months, with ORION Construction serving as the general contractor for the project. The marina continues to be the largest covered boat slip marina in Florida, boasting covered wet slips for vessels up to 100 feet in length.
“This was a complex project from a design, permitting and execution standpoint. The marina was over 50 years old and IGY took great care to ensure that this marina was redesigned to be responsive to the market and the evolving sizes of vessels both for today and for the next 50 years. IGY worked with us to ensure that all the critical customer touchpoints were addressed and that the uniqueness of the marina was maintained, all while making sound cost-benefit recommendations. IGY was able to institute a phasing plan that allowed a portion of the marina to stay open throughout construction which was very important to our customers. We are very pleased that IGY and ORION were able to deliver this project on time and under budget,” said Steven Fass, a principal at Bixby.
Maximo Marina’s transformation now provides world-class amenities such as floating concrete docks, state of the art fuel dock, covered slips for vessels up to 100 feet, boat lifts for vessels up to 36 feet (24K lbs.), complimentary Wi-Fi on gigabit enabled fiber network around the marina basin, renovated support facilities, and the opening of Getaway Maximo Restaurant (the largest restaurant opening in south St. Petersburg in more than a decade).
With all major phases of construction complete, Maximo Marina has the ability to welcome more than 200 vessels in wet slips, 142, of which, are covered and 58 equipped with boat lifts. The facility can also accommodate an additional 88 vessels within inside storage racks and another 200 vessels in outside dry storage racks. The covered boat lift slips are a product offering that enhances our existing dry stack marina product because customers can use their boats on their own schedules, independent of the lift-well hours of operation, while still having a protecting environment for the boat. “It’s a very unique product,” says general manager Lee Hicks. Maximo Marina also features a full-service facility offering haul outs for vessels up to 50 tons giving it the ability to service any and all boats in the marina.
IGY Marinas is well known in the industry as a leading marina operator. A lesser known fact is that IGY Marinas also features an in-house development and construction services team that has undertaken marina projects all over the world. This combination of development and operating experience positions IGY Marinas at the leading edge of the marina management industry. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Bixby and provide third-party development and operational management services on this very unique project. Boaters are seeking innovative marina amenities and services combined with added-value destination offerings and we were pleased that the marina owners called on us to help them achieve their goal,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas.
The Maximo Marina redevelopment is a critical component to the revitalization of the Skyway Marina District, one of five special commercial districts in the City of St. Petersburg – the marina is open with plans to participate in the block party celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Skyway Marina District on October 6th .
