#HongKong: Pressure on the #USD - #HKD peg is mounting. The rising #US interest rates have put enormous pressure on the HKD peg. This has depleted Hong Kong's excess FX reserves.
#HongKong has FX Reserves of $438bn (March 2019) plus another $6.9bn from the HKMA Exchange Fund which is there to stabilize the #HKD peg. Looking at the HKMA Exchange fund it is clear that money has been leaving HK. Since 2016 the fund has gone from $55bn to $7bn.
#HongKong M2 is currently 1,8 trillion USD. However, the total FX Reserves / M2 are only at 24%.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Here's a thread on banks becoming tech companies, vice versa and a few other permutations. #fintech #APIs #Banks
If banks start thinking of their C&I groups as B2B tech providers - including to their own retail/consumer banking units, the business case is there. They provide the tech infrastructure (via APIs) to companies creating great consumer experiences

The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings.…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

As you (probably don't) know, I do every year an analysis of the #NPL of EU #banks and the trends that appear in the EBA Transparency data (the only consistent dataset on EU banks.) Again this year the results are very interesting.
First of all an important disclaimer: this is *not* investment advice, i could be totally wrong and please don't rely on anything I say. 2/n
this being said, the most striking thing in the data is that THE BIG DELEVERAGING IS OVER. Yes, banks are lending again. Here's a scatter plot showing the size of the loan books 2018 (y-axis) vs 2017 (x-axis): pretty uniform and healthy growth across the board. 3/n

Big Picture TOC:

‘The whole mess of RU hacking, CA, the Trump & Leave Campaigns was not only a coup but an unprecedented shorting of the market through mass manipulation of the electorate w/ the aim of controlling not only geopolitics but the financial markets too’

Mueller’s RU probe will reach a “wild” level over the next couple of months, said Mark Warner

Court docs allegeTrump SoHo condominiums in the building were purchased using funds linked to a massive fraud case in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan.

Mueller nabs E. Prince's phones, computer & is said to be cooperating.

What does the British gov’t know about 45 & RU? Quite a lot, actually!

For the UK the choice over whether to back Mueller & the rule of law or the thug Putin & TOC, the choice is a no brainer.

💸💰Dünyada para sisteminin nasıl çalışır, bunu bilmeden kölelik sistemini anlayamaz ve gerçeği idrak edemezsiniz. Şimdi dilimiz döndüğünce bu konuyu irdelemeye çalışalım.


Hayirli Cumalar
1-Basit bir soru ile başlayalım:
Para nedir?
Para = Emek + Zaman = Özgürlük
Yani para, özgürlüğünüzü cebinizde taşımanızı sağlayan bir araçtır.
Çünkü paranın içinde, harcadığınız emeği ve zamanı depolar, sonra da onunla başkalarınınkini satın alabilirsiniz.
2-Paranızı sizden haksız biçimde ve sürekli olarak alan birileri varsa, bunun doğurduğu kesin sonuç sizin bir KÖLE, paranızı alanın da EFENDİ'niz olduğudur. Bu iş hükümetler ve merkez bankalarının beraber kurdukları bir tezgahla yapılır.
