To not be poor a family needs $ 34,784, 54.2% more than a year ago
During September, the value of the family poverty basket rose 5.4%, in 12 months 54.2% and is worth: $ 34,784.75, according to Indec’s calculation. With this figure, almost 30% of those who are employed – about 5.5 million people – even if they are “blank”, are poor.
Thus, having a job hasn’t prevented people from falling into poverty for a long time. But because of the recession, job insecurity, suspensions and the fall in wages and incomes in the face of inflation, more busy people fell below the poverty line. In addition, there was an increase in unregistered employment – who earn less – between wage earners and self-employed.
According to the data from the first quarter of this year of the Permanent Household Survey of the Indec, 24.5% of employed persons were poor. Now, due to the famine of these months, the wage loss accentuated in August and September (the bonus of $5,000 was agreed for October and for most will be paid in 2, 3 and up to 5 installments), the greatest number of informal workers to the detriment of formal ones, specialists estimate that it is around 30%.
These levels of poverty among wage earners are explained by the fact that half of the registered workers – 3,040,000 – who work in the private sector earned less than $35,461 in July, according to data from the Ministry of Production and Labor.
With retirement and health discounts, the “on-hand” wage is reduced to less than $29,432. Thus, adding the salary adjustments of August and September, plus the family allowance per child, for most that income is below the value of the poverty basket of a family that for a marriage with a younger child last month was worth $ 27,692.71 and with two children $ 34,784.75. It follows that without the income of the spouse, those families with formal employment of the head of household would be below the poverty line.
The poverty line for an unmarried male with no children between the ages of 30 and 60 in September was $11,257.20. And it is known that a large sector of those who work in the informal sector – which between salaried workers and self-employed account for a little more than 7 million people – earn less than that amount because they are “changes” or jobs of a few hours, without Social Security coverage.
If all these people are added to the unemployed people and their families, especially if they have minor children where poverty exceeds 50% and also the poor inactive ones (such as teenagers, retirees, and pensioners), the total urban poverty would be around 37/38%, above the 35.4% of the first semester of this year.
Sell In May? This VIX Butterfly Spread Could Be The Perfect Trading Strategy
Market volatility has fallen markedly as measured by the CBOE Volatility (VIX) Index. VIX is a real-time index that represents the market expectation for near-term volatility in the S&P500 index.
Investors and traders have long used VIX as a measure of the level of risk, fear or stress in the market.
Today, we’re going to look at a long call butterfly using VIX options as a way to profit if volatility jumps up again in the next few weeks.
A long call butterfly is constructed through buying a call option, selling two higher calls and buying one call even higher.
The trade is entered for a net debit meaning the trader pays to enter the trade. This debit is also the maximum possible loss.
Usually, a butterfly is placed roughly at-the-money, but today we are looking at placing it out-of-the-money.
Using the May 16 expiry, the trade would involve buying the 20 strike call, selling two of the 25 strike calls and buying one of the 30 strike calls.
The cost for the trade would be around $40-45 which is the most the trade could lose. The maximum potential gain is $460, which would occur is VIX closed right at 25 at expiration. The lower breakeven price is 20.50 and the upper breakeven price is 29.50.
There are three general outcomes with this butterfly.
- VIX below 20.50 – Trade loses $45. This scenario should be reasonably acceptable for most investors. While the option trade suffers a full loss, hopefully stocks have been stable or rising.
- VIX between 20.50 and 29.50 – Good for the VIX butterfly, but potentially bad for stock portfolios.
- VIX above 29.50 – Full loss on the VIX trade and potentially big drops in stock portfolio.
So, VIX above 30 is the main scenario that hurts in this case, but how likely is that? We’ve only seen a VIX reading of above 30 on a handful of days in the last six months.
Using VIX options can be simple and cheap way to buy some protection against a mild selloff in stocks between now and mid-May. The trade can be placed relatively cheaply at $40-45 per contract.
VIX options behave differently to regular stock options, so it is important that any trader using this product fully understands the risks involved. As always, do your own research and due diligence before risking any of your hard-earned capital.
Please remember that options are risky, and investors can lose 100% of their investment. This article is for education purposes only and not a trade recommendation. Remember to always do your own due diligence and consult your financial advisor before making any investment decisions.

Core Lithium (CXO) has posted a 62 per cent increase to the total mineral resource estimate (MRE) of its Finniss lithium project in the Northern Territory.
The total resource now comprises 30.6 million tonnes at 1.31 per cent lithium oxide.
Of this, the measured and indicated mineral resources make up 19.4 million tonnes at 1.37 per cent lithium oxide — an increase of 46 per cent from the previous resource.
The update follows the company’s largest drilling program to date: a 39,600-metre reverse circulation and diamond drilling campaign completed in 2022.
The program was conducted at both known deposits and new prospects within the Bynoe pegmatite field, which lies 15 kilometres south of Darwin and extends up to 70 kilometres in length and 15 kilometres in width.
Core said the new results highlighted the “significant potential” for mine life extensions at Finniss, and the company will now work to complete an updated ore reserve estimate.
The company has allocated $25 million to its 2023 drilling campaign — nearly double the budget allocated for 2022 — to deliver further increases to the project’s MRE.
CXO shares were up 7.03 per cent and trading at 99 cents at 11:54 am AEST.
Understanding the Steps of a “Know Your Customer” Process
To help battle against the multi-trillion-dollar financial crime industry, firms themselves take steps toward solving the problem. One way organizations have responded is by expanding their “Know Your Customer” (KYC) efforts.
KYC references a set of guidelines that financial institutions and businesses follow to verify the identity, suitability, and risks of a current or potential customer. The goal is to identify suspicious behavior such as money laundering and financial terrorism before it ever materializes.
KYC regulations originated from years of unchecked financial crimes. The initial guidelines were drafted in 1970 when the U.S. passed the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) to prevent money laundering. Notable additions came years later, after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and 2008 global financial crisis.
The regulations put in place over the years have required firms to monitor client behavior regularly. And there is no exception for not complying. Any company—including banks, insurance companies, and creditors—with exposure to client risk must develop a KYC strategy for engaging with customers.
What are the requirements to “Know Your Customer”?
The “Know Your Customer” framework contains three steps: customer identification program (CIP), customer due diligence (CDD) and enhanced due diligence (EDD).
Customer Identification Program
At the minimum, firms must pull four pieces of identifying information about a client, including name, date of birth, address, and identification number.
Most firms take additional steps in their screening process. Many will make sure that clients do not appear on government sanction lists, politically exposed person (PEP) lists, or known terrorism lists— those who do appear usually require enhanced due diligence.
Other items considered at this time include financial transactions, which firms use to separate potentially risky behavior from regular business activity.
Much of this information comes from various reporting agencies, public databases and third-party sources.
Customer Due Diligence (CDD)
Customer due diligence is the process of classifying all the information collected during the Customer Identification Program.
Firms examine the nature and beneficiaries of existing relationships to ensure all activity is consistent with historical customer information.
The goal is to obtain enough information to verify a customer’s identity and assess their riskiness. Since financial crime happens quickly, firms frequently monitor this information for unusual spikes in activity or changes to sanction lists. Most clients pose little to no risk, but the few who do are subject to enhanced due diligence.
Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD)
If a customer is believed to pose additional risks, firms take extra steps to gain a better understanding of their motivations. A high-risk person may include those with political exposure or relationships with designated persons. Even someone in a high-risk country can raise a red flag for compliance.
In practice, firms must demonstrate a deeper understanding of the high-risk clients identified by a standard customer due diligence program. Some of the information required to perform enhanced due diligence includes a source of wealth verification, detailed management reports and relevant third-party research.
