INTRODUCES GUESS ECO COLLECTION FOR SPRING 2019 (Photo: Business Wire) The women’s GUESS Eco collection includes a range of denim jeans, a trucker jacket, 100% Organic cotton logo and graphic t-shirts and a 100% Organic cotton logo bodysuit. For men, slim tapered denim jeans in a medium & light wash are outfitted with a selection of 100% Organic cotton logo and button-down shirts to complete the look. The denim offered in the GUESS Eco collection is made with advanced technology that uses, on average, approximately 30% less water per garment and reduces chemical use throughout production. Made by one of the world’s greenest denim mills, Candiani, GUESS Eco denim fabric is created by using a pre-reduced indigo dye that reduces chemical use and lowers overall environmental impact throughout the product manufacturing process. Using reusable stones to distress the denim reduces waste created during production, while pocket linings made with 30% recycled content further reduces waste and diverts plastic bottles from landfill. “With our first global GUESS Eco collection and larger sustainability program, we make a promise to a better future through innovation. By offering high quality product designed with the environment in mind, we want our customer to know that GUESS understands the world’s environmental challenges and is working to evolve our practices and products.

In addition to launching GUESS Eco for World Water Day 2019, GUESS is also sponsoring a clean water giveaway in partnership with and Little Miss Flint for families in Flint, Michigan. GUESS has also supported access to clean water for communities in India and Puerto Rico, with a resulting impact of reaching an estimated 2,000 people through its philanthropic efforts for increasing access to clean water. Guess is prioritizing water in its sustainability efforts after learning that one pair of denim jeans can use over 700 gallons of water throughout its life, as calculated by the GUESS denim water footprint published in its FY16-17 Sustainability Report. Thus, Guess seeks to address water use throughout the lifecycle of denim – from cotton sourcing to denim production to customer care. While Guess Eco focuses primarily on water-saving in denim production, the company is also working to increase sourcing of more sustainable cotton and has recently updated its denim product care guide for customers.

Finance Attitude - Top 5 Forex Risks Traders Should Consider Before they Invest
Top 5 Forex Risks Traders Should Consider Before they Invest
Forex exchange market is a global decentralized or over the counter market that facilitates the trading of currencies. Just like in a stock exchange, the traders’ goal is to make a profit by buying low and selling high. Forex markets are highly liquid assets due to the high trading volumes. Some of the most common forex exchange trades include spot transactions, currency swaps, and options, forwards, and foreign exchange swaps. Forex trades face plenty of risks that can result in substantial losses. Here are the top 5 forex risks that every trader should consider before they dive into forex trading: 1.    Leverage Risks In forex trading, traders require a small initial investment called a margin which is used as leverage in forex trading to gain access to substantial trades. Price volatility can result in margin calls where the investor is required to commit an additional margin. In highly volatile market conditions, aggressive use of leverage by traders can result in massive losses over initial investments made. 2.    Interest Rate Risks Interest rate affects countries exchange rates.  If a country’s interest rates rise, the currency strengthens. Investors flood the country as they invest in the country’s assets. In essence, a stronger currency means better returns. On the other hand, if a country interest rates fall, the currency weakens as investors begin to withdraw their investments. Interest rate changes can thus have a dramatic effect on forex prices. 3.    Transaction Risks The difference or gap between when a contract is initiated and when it settles poses a transaction risk which is an exchange rate risk. Forex trading usually takes 24 hours, and exchange rates can drastically change any time before a trade settle. Currencies also trade at different prices at different times during the trading process. The greater the gap, the higher the transaction risk. The exchange risk that traders face during the trading hours increase the transaction costs. 4.    Counterparty Risk The company that provides the asset to an investor in a financial transaction is called the counterparty. There is a risk of default from the dealer or broker in any particular transaction which refers to the counterparty risk. Spot and forward contracts on currencies do not get a guarantee by an exchange or a clearing house and thus pose a counterparty risk to an investor. The counterparty risk can occur in spot currency trading in the event the market maker end up insolvency. The counterparty can refuse or can be unable to oblige to contracts in highly volatile market conditions. 5.    Country Risk An investor must assess the structure and the stability of the issuing country before they invest in currencies. In a majority of developing countries, the exchange rates are pegged to a particular world leader currency such as the US dollar. Central Banks in those countries must sustain sufficient reserves to help maintain good exchange rates. A balance of payments deficit can lead to devaluation of the currency and result in a currency crisis. It can consequently have massive effects on forex prices and trading. Investors can also begin to withdraw their assets if they suspect the currency is likely to decrease in value. It results in further devaluing of the currency. Currency crisis aggravates liquidity and credit risks as the currency devalues the assets become illiquid. The Bottom Line An investor should consider the various risks and losses associated with foreign exchange trading before they invest. While forex assets have the highest trading volume, the risks can lead to massive losses.
