@pvmextrader En el va a ser del mismo peso que las elecciones de #EEUU, la manera en que salga #UK de la zona #Euro, la 2a ola de #COVID_19 en #Europa sobre todo en UK #UKLockdown, y la decepción después del optimismo irracional por los estímulos que no han funcionando en Europa.
@pvmextrader Y al contrario, yo creo que mientras más se acerquen las elecciones de #EEUU va a haber mayor incertidumbre y los tiburones se refugiarán más en #USD, y para diciembre 2020 se vencen los primeros bonos que compró la #FED y se tienen que liquidar en #USD. Milkshake dollar theory.
@pvmextrader Y no perder de vista que la semana pasada se perdió la correlación negativa #stocks / #USD, es decir, cuando bajaron bolsas voló el #USD y cuando subieron bolsas también subió el #USD, castigando al #oro, #plata #euro y #petroleo, creo que esta correlación puede seguir así.

There is a 'debate' in the Netherlands about government paid influencers. The current topic is #vaccines, seems they started in 2010 to influence the population to increase the vaccine %.
When a mother told her horrorstory about her child after #vaccination the government trolls reacted with another story. It is a weird surreal world 🤔

I was talking with a friend recently about #money, #gold, #silver, currency & petrodollars.

Most of us will be aware of what FDR did in the 1930s regarding personal ownership of gold.

What if the lack of silver in our coins might be an indicator that our nations are broke?
After WW1, #France no longer had coins with silver. The #UK reduced from 92.5% to 50% at the same time.

German went to 0% in 1939.

After WW2, the UK & New Zealand had no silver in their coins, #Australia went from 92.5% to 50%
The #USA & Australia last had silver in their coinage in 1964, the 1966 Aust. 50c piece notwithstanding.

Japan went to 0% in 1966, Canada in 1968.

Soon after we were all on the petrodollar.

By 1973, Bretton Woods was dead in the water.

Fiat currency has reigned supreme since.

[#HKers doxxed by #Russia-based pro-#China website]

1. @AFP finds a shady site #HKLeaks ramps up doxxing campaign against pro-democracy #HKers from politicians, teachers, journalists, businessmen, ordinary citizens to expats, w/ names & addresses posted

france24.com/en/20200918-an…
2. Promoted by #Beijing loyalists and #CCP’s state mouthpiece, this #Russia-based website moved its domain multiple times and now migrated to Pakistani domain address. While 2000+ #Hongkongers were doxxed, #Hkpolice has charged no one over the doxxing campaign until now.
3. Similar #China-style snooping model may expand overseas, esp when #Chinese #military contractor #Zhenhua Data was found snooping 2.4M+ of politicians, businessmen, academics, celebrities & individuals. Clearly Zhenhua is just the tip of the iceberg. theguardian.com/world/2020/sep…

#BREAKING🚨

#UN #FRANCE #GERMANY #UK #USA #EUROPE #IRAN

Germany, Great Britain and France continue to oppose the dispute with the USA over the UN sanctions against Iran.
The reinstatement of the punitive measures pursued by the administration of US President Donald Trump is "not legally competent", argue the UN ambassadors of the three European countries in a letter to the President of the UN Security Council in New York.
Berlin, London and Paris emphasize that they do not see the USA in the legal position to trigger the so-called snapback mechanism. This opinion shared a large part of the most powerful UN body, it said.

#Day27 [Right of visiting 12 detainees declined]

1/ While #CCP may claim that the group is not under consular protection, the right of visiting 12 detainees by consulate is an absolutely legitimate & reasonable demand, especially for a🇵🇹 #Portugese national & 2 #UK #BNO holders.
2/ But it looks that the #Portuguese Consulate office has yet to intend to visit the detained Portuguese national in person. Earlier his lawyer worried that efforts of the Portuguese authorities are 'far from satisfactory'.
observador.pt/2020/09/12/sem…
3/ Not a day goes by #HK people worrying about the situtaion of them. What makes the situation so dire is that they are completely disconnected with the outside world. God knows how does the #Chinese authorities treat them in detention. #Save12HKyouths @save12hkyouths

Was redet @c_drosten jetzt schon wieder ?
Er sieht eine ähnliche Entwicklung, wenn er die Kurven von #Deutschland, #Spanien, #Frankreich und #UK übereinander legt ? Welche Kurven meint er denn genau ? Die Entwicklung des BIP oder die der Insolvenzen ? Image
Die #Corona Fälle kann er nicht meinen, weil es da ganz offensichtlich keinen Zusammenhang gibt, die kann er hin und herschieben, wie er will.
Es ist halt auch nicht so wirklich überzeugend, wenn ein Virologe Aussagen zu epidemiologischen Fragen treffen will. ImageImageImageImage
Dafür müsste man zumindest auch die weiteren Parameter berücksichtigen wie die Anzahl der durchgeführten Tests und die sich offenbarende Prävalenz in den Testgruppen.

1️⃣ An officer from #ISI, #Pakistan called me yesterday.@OfficialDGISPR @pid_gov @PakPMO
He wanted frm me dirty jobs.
1- Provide the details of 50 Pak students who got Cheveing scholarships 20/21 in top #UK universities.
2- Provide the list of hidden Jews in Pakistan.
Proofs 👇🏻 ImageImage
2️⃣ He was very polite, respectful & al the time called me “Sir”, requested to provide:
1- Which unis they got admission, details of their courses, etc. When I asked them why do they need, he said “to update their record in their system”.
Means “Spying own citizens unlawfully”.
3️⃣ When I condemned him & refused to do so, he then changed his plea & requested me to at least provide the details of those #PakistaniJews (@Jew_Pakistani) who are disguised under different religions and living in a country for decades.
I asked, so that you can abduct them?

[#Portugese 🇵🇹 & #UK’s #BNO holders 🇬🇧 detained in #China for over 3 weeks]

1. Of the 12 #HKers detained in #China, one is reportedly #Portuguese passport holder while another two are #BNO holders. They are held w/o legal access, sparking growing concern of inhumane treatment. Image
2. It is worrying, under #nationalsecuritylaw, foreign passport holders are deprived of basic rights of access to family-appointed lawyers, which is claimingly promised in #China’s law, esp when 4 lawyers were forced to quit the case due to unusual pressure from #CCP authorities.
3. The twelve could be in China custody for a long time, without any trace. This worse scenario may unveil a new form of Chinese hostage diplomacy under growing tension between #EU & #China

@IHME_UW (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) and @UWMedicine (University of Washington’s School of Medicine), no lightweights, have come out with
global projections of #COVID19 by nation.
Short summary 👇

healthdata.org/news-release/f…
They modelled 3 scenarios:
1. Worse case:
- mask usage stays at current rates, and,
- governments continue relaxing social distancing requirements.
This leads to 4.0 million total deaths by the end of the year.
Best case:
- mask usage is near-universal, and,
- governments impose social distancing requirements when their daily death rate exceeds 8 per million.
This leads to 2.0 million total deaths if by the end of the year.

NEW: Draft #EU plan to maintain access to #UK clearing houses after #Brexit. @EU_Commission decision will safeguard #EU banks' access to LCH etc for 18 months to June 30, 2022: ft.com/content/2de23b…. A short thread: 1/
The plans reflect LCH's dominance in clearing euro-denominated derivatives, and stave off financial stability risks at the end of the #Brexit transition period. Both #ECB and #BOE have warned of this: 2/
But the @commission is also clear that it sees the 18-months as a breathing space to deal with that problem by building up the #EU's own clearing capacity and reducing reliance on London: 3/
