Clothing Designs For Women in Wheelchairs

Women who are restricted to wheelchairs often find that their condition can limit the choices of clothing which they can buy. Generally all clothing are made for able bodied people and does not cater for women who use wheelchairs. Clothing that is designed is normally of one size and loose fitting as in one size fits all and style is never looked at. But now slowly designers are looking into this form of clothing and more up to date stylish clothing is emerging with the theme ” women in wheelchairs.”Clothing that designed for people who use wheelchairs is typically designed to accommodate all disabilities, This can be very important for people who suffer lack of motor ability in their hands. Therefore manufactures include velcro seams and buttons therefore making it possible to dress themselves. If you are able to use buttons, however, you may prefer a button-down shirt, but still want it to be designed to look good while you’re in a sitting position and not when your standing as with normal clothing.Clothing designed for women in wheelchairs has dissolved slowly compared to wheelchair designs. WE can buy wheelchairs for any disability, but most wheelchair appropriate clothing designed to accessible to anyone.Now designers are finally catching up with wheelchair fashion and particularly women in wheelchairs. There still are not many sources of fashion clothing for women in wheelchairs but the market is expanding. These designers tend to focus on simply making clothing which looks good and is comfortable while sitting down, which may make them a tempting option for people who work in an office as well.With new wheelchair fashion designers, women in wheelchairs no longer have to feel that they can’t use up-to-date, fashionable clothing which looks and feels good.

SPDN: An Inexpensive Way To Profit When The S&P 500 Falls

Summary
SPDN is not the largest or oldest way to short the S&P 500, but it’s a solid choice.
This ETF uses a variety of financial instruments to target a return opposite that of the S&P 500 Index.
SPDN’s 0.49% Expense Ratio is nearly half that of the larger, longer-tenured -1x Inverse S&P 500 ETF.
Details aside, the potential continuation of the equity bear market makes single-inverse ETFs an investment segment investor should be familiar with.
We rate SPDN a Strong Buy because we believe the risks of a continued bear market greatly outweigh the possibility of a quick return to a bull market.

Summary
The S&P 500 is in a bear market, and we don’t see a quick-fix. Many investors assume the only way to navigate a potentially long-term bear market is to hide in cash, day-trade or “just hang in there” while the bear takes their retirement nest egg.

The Direxion Daily S&P 500® Bear 1X ETF (NYSEARCA:SPDN) is one of a class of single-inverse ETFs that allow investors to profit from down moves in the stock market.

SPDN is an unleveraged, liquid, low-cost way to either try to hedge an equity portfolio, profit from a decline in the S&P 500, or both. We rate it a Strong Buy, given our concern about the intermediate-term outlook for the global equity market.

Strategy
SPDN keeps it simple. If the S&P 500 goes up by X%, it should go down by X%. The opposite is also expected.

Proprietary ETF Grades
Offense/Defense: Defense

Segment: Inverse Equity

Sub-Segment: Inverse S&P 500

Correlation (vs. S&P 500): Very High (inverse)

Expected Volatility (vs. S&P 500): Similar (but opposite)

Holding Analysis
SPDN does not rely on shorting individual stocks in the S&P 500. Instead, the managers typically use a combination of futures, swaps and other derivative instruments to create a portfolio that consistently aims to deliver the opposite of what the S&P 500 does.

Strengths
SPDN is a fairly “no-frills” way to do what many investors probably wished they could do during the first 9 months of 2022 and in past bear markets: find something that goes up when the “market” goes down. After all, bonds are not the answer they used to be, commodities like gold have, shall we say, lost their luster. And moving to cash creates the issue of making two correct timing decisions, when to get in and when to get out. SPDN and its single-inverse ETF brethren offer a liquid tool to use in a variety of ways, depending on what a particular investor wants to achieve.

Weaknesses
The weakness of any inverse ETF is that it does the opposite of what the market does, when the market goes up. So, even in bear markets when the broader market trend is down, sharp bear market rallies (or any rallies for that matter) in the S&P 500 will cause SPDN to drop as much as the market goes up.

Opportunities
While inverse ETFs have a reputation in some circles as nothing more than day-trading vehicles, our own experience with them is, pardon the pun, exactly the opposite! We encourage investors to try to better-understand single inverse ETFs like SPDN. While traders tend to gravitate to leveraged inverse ETFs (which actually are day-trading tools), we believe that in an extended bear market, SPDN and its ilk could be a game-saver for many portfolios.

Threats
SPDN and most other single inverse ETFs are vulnerable to a sustained rise in the price of the index it aims to deliver the inverse of. But that threat of loss in a rising market means that when an investor considers SPDN, they should also have a game plan for how and when they will deploy this unique portfolio weapon.

Proprietary Technical Ratings
Short-Term Rating (next 3 months): Strong Buy

Long-Term Rating (next 12 months): Buy

Conclusions
ETF Quality Opinion
SPDN does what it aims to do, and has done so for over 6 years now. For a while, it was largely-ignored, given the existence of a similar ETF that has been around much longer. But the more tenured SPDN has become, the more attractive it looks as an alternative.

ETF Investment Opinion

SPDN is rated Strong Buy because the S&P 500 continues to look as vulnerable to further decline. And, while the market bottomed in mid-June, rallied, then waffled since that time, our proprietary macro market indicators all point to much greater risk of a major decline from this level than a fast return to bull market glory. Thus, SPDN is at best a way to exploit and attack the bear, and at worst a hedge on an otherwise equity-laden portfolio.

Mobile And Manufactured Home Loans And Financing For Seniors

I am a Professional Housing Consultant (P.H.C.) certified by the Manufactured Housing Association and have spent many years in the manufactured home industry as a sales representative /sales manager for retail sales centers. Because of my vast experience, I would like to share some financing tips with seniors like myself. Let me begin by going back about ten or fifteen years ago. The
manufactured home industry was booming. There were many finance companies available all of which were competing for your business. They would finance almost anyone at a high interest rate and with little or no down payment. The retailers would take almost anything and show it as a down payment and highly inflate the value. As a result this category of customer would have no investment in their home. To make matters even worse the communities were offering free lot rent for one year or more.Most of us in the industry knew what was going to happen. However, no one knew when
it would happen. It eventually came to pass in the ’90′s…….a large majority of these owners simply walked away and let their homes be repossessed by the finance companiesAs a net result of all these repossessions most of the finance companies either went bankrupt or stopped lending to any mobile or manufactured home owner. Many retailers also went out of business. I happened to work for the largest manufactured home retailer and manufacturer in the world at that time. They also had to file bankruptcy and ended up going out of business.Now let’s talk about the good part of the industry, seniors like you and me!Many of us secured our home investment by either paying cash or putting down a substantial down payment with the result being that most of us are enjoying our investment and our
lifestyles today.However, those unexpected bills or rising costs keep coming in. There are a number of seniors that have had to leave their comfortable homes and go live with their children.
Many have had to give up the activities they like to do. Some have lost a spouse and some income.Let me explain how I handled my situation as unexpected bills came in.FirstI located a finance company that wanted my business.This information is available at my websites listed at the bottom of this article.SecondI borrowed fifty thousand dollars on my home with payments amortized over thirty years with interest only payments for the first seven years.ThirdI paid off all my bills which amounted to about eight thousand dollars.FourthI opened an interest bearing savings account, depositing five thousand dollars. This cash would be readily available for any emergency that arose.FifthI put thirty-seven thousand into a high yield certificate of deposit.Now, for more good news………The finance companies, by law, cannot age discriminate just because you are a senior.I will be one hundred two years old when my mortgage ends.My out pocket expense is
no higher now than it was before I refinanced.You may go to any of my websites while still on line to see if financing or refinancing is right for you. This will direct you to the companies I recommend. There also is an excellent insurance contact on the site. I received three quotes from them and put my car and home owners insurance with the same company and therefore saved a substantial amount of dollars on the home insurance.These websites contain all the information you will need to make a wise decision.Free Finance or Refinance
