For investors, things just about couldn’t be better. The benchmark S&P 500 (SNPINDEX:^GSPC) has more than doubled since hitting its coronavirus pandemic low on March 23, 2020, and it’s, thus far, gone the entirety of 2021 without so much as a 5% correction.

Canadian cryptocurrency company plans to buy North Tonawanda power plant | Local News

Lewiston architect David Guisiana, who presented the project to the Planning Board, said the plan calls for numerous shipping containers, in multiple stacks each 24 feet high, to be placed on the power plant’s lawn.

How To Buy Cryptocurrency | Ultimate Beginners Guide For 2021

Futurists and technicians tried to woo the public with interesting projections but it was not drawing much attention from the investment world.
