Good morning! 😁Deflationary phase is developing in economy. Stay tuned for my perspectives on coming developments in markets based on charts - technical and fundamental analysis #HZupdates thread coming up!
SP500 recovered some of the loses from early trading this week. Still, I think we have seen the top of the Expanding Diagonal, and we are currently in the Deflationary part of the crisis, where growth in economy is rolling over. Target ~2050 by Q1/Q2 2020 #HZupdates
#SP500 - will we see rally to 2950 for pot. top of wave 2 (black) before reversal and strong decline? That would close the gap in market from early Aug. #HZupdates

I'm no fan of the secular academical approach to #Islamic militantism. We all know who I'm talking about. There're some aspects to it that make it inherently flawed and inconsistent with the reality of #Islam. I'll comment on two of these flaws, but there are many more.
It enforces the idea of nationalism through the use of the term "foreign fighters". This term is foreign (pun intended) to the Islamic worldview, and is the result of the artificial, post-colonial borders dividing the #Muslim world into European-style nation-states.
In the Islamic worldview, a Muslim is symbolically related through membership of the shared religion to any other member of this socio-religious group we call the "ummah" (the Muslim Community). That's the inside group. Those that do not share the religion are obviously not.

@HardingMike WTF has Putin got to do with your decisions! As for the EU failing well let us take a look! Let us talk about France and Mouvement des gilets jaunes, The Austerity imposed on Greece, Hungary with a Fascist leader, The PiS in Poland which opposes further integration,
@HardingMike Then we have Lega Nord in Italy and (M5S) and Matteo Salvini has a questionable record of Human Rights when it comes to the Roma people bit.ly/2Yv5oxw and let us not forget the #AfD in #Germany
@HardingMike You are right about #Bannon and his ilk but they are not the problem they are a symptom of the underlining problem. A collapsing capitalist economic system. People in fear for jobs, homes, food etc. Are easily led by the Bannon's of this world. #Europe is not the Garden of Eden!

But thinking about it - it all really comes down to one thing, a conflict that affects all world civilizations.

That is the conflict between personal liberty and control by elites.

Jews are the ultimate example of a people who refuses to conform, who insists on its right to dissent from the orthodoxy & power of the elites in every era. 3) #Jews #nonconformists

They say in politics & Int'l Relations, there are no friends, only shared interests. That is partially true. There are those that share our interests & values - & there are those that oppose them, & then there are those with whom we have no real points of conflict or interests 2)
Today, the USA has 2 main adversaries.

China, with whom we have major trade and geopolitical points of conflict. China is a competitor economically that has dealt dishonestly with the rest of the world - 3) #China #EU

1/9 <-- Buckle up...

@Microsoft invests $1Billion into @OpenAI with the express purpose of building "Beneficial artificial general intelligence (#AGI)."

openai.com/blog/microsoft

Mark my words, here's what you can expect:
-- A number of Chinese initiatives of a similar overtly AGI-focused nature
-- Maybe one such similar initiative in Japan/EU (but with notably less funding and fanfare than those in #USA/#China)

(#Europe will try to compete w/regulation, not AGI itself - emerj.com/ai-power/regul…)
-- AGI players (there are VERY few- Microsoft, @Google, @Facebook, maybe @Baidu_Inc, Tencent) will pour more resources into the AGI race, and will mud-sling the dangers or "selfishness" of their rivals

In truth, all will be vying for power, by innovation or feigned virtue.

Thread: Nearly 60% of #Huawei’s 50 5G contracts are from #Europe - Huawei said 28 of 50 commercial contracts for 5G that it signed globally are with operators in Europe - Some people never learn, money & trade above security 👎👎👎 scmp.com/tech/big-tech/…
Huawei’s major competitors in network development, Finland’s Nokia and Sweden’s Ericsson, had secured 43 contracts and 22 contracts as of the end June, respectively. Huawei’s crosstown rival, ZTE, has publicly announced 25 commercial deals.
Europe, which has generally resisted pressure from the US to shut out Huawei, is an important market that the company could not afford to lose after a series of bans in North America and Oceania.

#Europe Joins #US Companies Moving Out Of #China - Make no mistake about it, the trade war is absolutely remapping global supply chains … to the detriment of Chinese manufacturing. forbes.com/sites/kenrapoz…
The percentage of China-leaving businesses surveyed by quality control and supply chain auditor QIMA was 80% for American companies and 67% for those based in the European Union.
QIMA has more than just anecdotal evidence. Demand for their China-based audits dropped by 13% as mainland manufacturers are either losing their foreign clients faster due to costs associated with tariffs or are relocating manufacturing out of China to avoid those tariffs.

A thread:
Illuminating #Bible passages on how a #pagan deserves only deceit, dissimulation and to be taken advantage of - even when he extends help.

Even if fellow-#Abrahamics are mortal enemies, a Pagan who extends shelter to one never really wins their loyalty or trust.
2/n
The scene: David flees Israelite territory. King Saul is trying to kill him, no matter how much David tries to prove his bona fides.

David + 600 soldiers (w/ families) take shelter with Philistine King Achish of Gath - pagans the Israelites hate.

biblegateway.com/passage/?searc…
3/n
Pagan king Achish grants David a town to settle in, hoping to win favour through hospitality. And perhaps driving a wedge in Israel.

Instead, behind his host's back, David and his men sack and massacre nearby pagan settlements - making sure that the king doesn't hear of it.

Thread: #HongKong showed #China is a threat to democracy. Now #Europe must defend - Beijing is bullying another democratic neighbour. The EU must stop ignoring authoritarianism for the sake of stability and cash #Taiwan theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
Hong Kong’s administration has backed down over the controversial extradition bill, but the canary in the coalmine of China’s tacit acceptance of democracy is already dead.
Under China’s “one country, two systems” model, Hong Kong was given the guarantee that the freedoms of its citizens would be preserved & respected. Meanwhile, for a long time in the west, the consensus was that, as its economy grew, China would start to look more like Hong Kong.

Good morning all! 🙂 Morning in Copenhagen - listening to Ludovico while I'm updating analyses and family sleeps. Fantastic piece of music: #AllisGood
Time for some #HZupdates. Let's take a look at the market from the way I see it. Where is that deflation, I have been forecasting? Did CBs succeed to do their magic and eliminate that threat? What about the Kondratiev's winter - over/done? Stay tuned! 🙂
AUDUSD is inflation gauge. Rally=inflation up; Decline=inflation down. LT perspective looks like this. Decline in 2008 = wave A. Rally up to 2011 = wave B. We have since been in wave C. Wave 5 will take us to ~0.5. Note the horizontal line. When this goes -->free fall #HZupdates

Yes, Russians tried to interfere in a US election in 2016, by using social media and by planting phony stories.
2) #Russia #socialmedia #phonystories #Hillary #HillaryClinton
If you look at what was planted, it is clear they wanted #HillaryClinton to be elected POTUS, because what was planted followed the left’s agenda of convincing the voters that Trump & the “right” was going to divide Americans & that #Trump was all sorts of #Negative things. 3)

On #WorldRefugeeDay2019 & the anti-immigrant sentiment in #Sweden.

#Lebanese authorities are arresting #Syrian refugees and handing them over to the #Assad regime. They are also forcing them to demolish their shelters, intending to stop them from staying in Lebanon permanently.
#Assad's and #Russian warplanes, in addition to Assad's militiamen have killed at least 487 civilians, including 118 children and 92 women, and injured 1487 civilians in #Hama and #Idlib countryside since April 26.
Source: Syrian Network for Human Rights (.@snhr), on Jun 21.
In addition, massacres have been perpetrated in #Aleppo, where yet more civilians have been killed. People are trapped. There is no way to escape, and nowhere to seek refuge from the heinous bombardments. Wherever they turn, the borders are closed.

#Thread: of a Real #Story of my grandmother in #Greece close at the Turkish Bulgarian borders encountering illegal refugees yesterday night at her home outside.
1/ Yesterday Last night my grandmother in the #Greek state of #Ebros what is close to the Turkish and the Bulgarian borders, encountered three #Algerian illegal migrants outside her home in a silent town in the dark and rainy day.
2/ The three illegal migrants from #Algerian decent were outside the home of my grandmother and grandfather. The 3 men were soaked from the rain and were in a cold state. They knocked on the door because a friend of theirs did not feel well and went ill.

Just wrote a 10 msg response to a long chat we've been having around the Fed/Powell, same old stuff, hence my long response to lay it all out there. Thought I'd share with the rest of you, please do share your thoughts as well. Here we go. For those ready for a book. #Dollar #Fed
1\ Did you read the report from the NYFed issued in Jan? Doesn't suggest NIRP anytime soon, the opposite actually. Here's the facts: 1) the Fed is backed into a corner and can never actually "normalize" rates, & 2) Powell's intentions are relevant only in S/T because, 2\
2\ as we all know, we will (ultimately) have another painful sell-off in equities. The Fed is horrified by the prospect of such an event due to the resulting implosion of underfunded (an unfunded) pensions, entitlement programs & retirement funds across the US that'd result. 3\
