The future is a big word. It can be composed of uncertainties that make us all fear for. However, it is also filled with opportunities that one can grasp vast amount of optimism. We, as the human species, have always been fascinated with our imagination about the future. In the past, we besought witches to tell us about our fortunes. Nowadays, we form risk management entities and consulting firms that help clients identify opportunities and dangers, while attempting to “shape” the future for each one’s favor if possible. If you ask any one at the New Year Eve party about their predictions of the year 2020 on December 31st, 2019, no one would have believed what was bound to take place—in the same fashion as one from 1700s would have never believed the establishment of European Union. While the virus halted our daily routines and is enforcing humans to change their social behaviors, the very reality of this current pandemic COVID-19 is indeed unprecedented. Humans cannot rewind the reality to the past—we should analyze the current situation and predict the future trends in the hope of a more adequate preparation. COVID-19 can be perceived as a catalyst that boosts the progress of various occurring long-term trends in business conducts. Hence, these key long-term trends can shape up companies’ future structures and behaviors forever.

The profitability of a commercial bank is an important factor to measure its comprehensive development level. Taking the 2019 annual data of China’s 16 listed commercial banks as a research sample, the factor analysis method is used to empirically analyze the profitability of each bank, extract four public factors, and calculate the comprehensive score of each bank’s profitability. The research results show that the non-performing loan ratio and risk of joint-stock banks are higher, and the capital adequacy ratio is lower. The comprehensive profitability and anti-risk ability of state-owned banks are better than joint-stock banks, and their finances are more stable. This suggests that commercial banks should strengthen their risk control while increasing their profit margins.

The connections between Fibonacci sequence and Elliott impulse wave that Ralph Elliot has proposed in Elliott Wave Principle are not valid all the time owing to the type and variability of the stock market. It is a probabilistic event which can reflect the compatibility between Fibonacci sequence and Elliott impulse wave. In order to explore the compatibility between Fibonacci sequence and basic-form Elliott impulse wave in the context of Chinese A-share market, a research via analyzing the historical trend of 50 core assets’ individual stocks was conducted in Chinese A-share market. The study reveals that Fibonacci sequence does not highly fit basic-form Elliott impulse wave in the context of Chinese A-share market. Suggestions for investors are diversifying the investment strategy to enhance risk controllability, rather than using Elliott Wave Principle singly.

China is currently in a complex period of “three-phase superposition”. Under the new normal of the economy Financial deleveraging has achieved certain results. However, the non-performing loan ratio of commercial banks has shown a continuous upward trend since 2015. The empirical results show that the degree of internalization of commercial banks, credit balances, and gross domestic product have a negative impact on the NPL ratio, and the cost-to-income ratio and leverage ratio have a positive impact on the NPL ratio. Therefore, commercial banks should vigorously develop digital technology, expand the scale of credit, use technological advantages to reduce costs, establish an appropriate level of leverage, and effectively reduce the non-performing loan ratio to improve the asset quality of commercial banks.

According to consumers’ aesthetic habits and preferences, the “AI data + movies” mode can produce works that are very suitable for the market. The social information dissemination ecology constructed by streaming media has also broken through the distribution and marketing channels centered on theaters. The marketing ecology of the film industry is gradually changing from the former “line structure” or “core ring structure” to a “block-chain structure” with equal weight in all links and marketing channels. Based on the Pareto theory, this paper provides some suggestions and ideas to help practitioners find a balance point when facing the game between personal interests and industry interests. At the same time, after the rise of streaming media, what key indicators should film marketing consider? What kind of dynamic data associations are presented between various indicators and box office revenues of different platforms?

The pound fell a quarter of a percent to as low as $1.2994 against the dollar after the BBC reported a group of about 50 lawmakers in May’s government had met to discuss how and when they could force her out of her job.

These lawmakers have condemned May’s plans for Britain to remain in a free trade zone for goods with the EU after it leaves the bloc in March, 2019.


The pound later recovered to trade flat at $1.3028, while against the euro the British currency was largely unmoved, at 89.010 pence per euro.
