You can utilize chart patterns in two different ways.

1) Trade price between well-defined boundaries (need to find a clear chart pattern at early stages)

2) Trade breakouts through chart pattern boundaries

I favor 2.
Following examples will highlight why I favor:

1⃣Breakout strategies
2⃣Horiozontal chart pattern breakouts
3⃣Rectangle setups with several tests of chart pattern boundary
BAE SYSTEMS. Breakout after several tests of well-defined horizontal boundary. No pullback and challenge to chart pattern boundary. Bullish continuation completing above 200-day. #RECENT #BREAKOUT #ALERT #UK #FTSE

It’s time for my traditional train Twitter thread after @MunSecConf. As our Chairman @ischinger said, we’re all tired now. But the most important thing is that we had a weekend of vivid debates! #MSC2020
I’m glad that the title of our #MSCreport#Westlessness – triggered some of them. We think of the MSR as a conversation starter for the conference, and it worked well this year – in particular because some thought it accurately described the zeitgeist, and others disagreed.
Are you still wondering – like my my two-year old (“Papa, was soll das heißen?"| "Dad, what does this even mean?”) – what this term is meant to convey? You can re-watch my presentation of the #MSCreport in Berlin. #Westlessness…

Lebanon, Rwanda, Afghanistan... all examples of cramming different peoples together in a limited space with the command to rule together in an artificial entity we know as the nation-state, a concept introduced outside of #Europe only in the aftermath of the colonial onslaught.
After centuries of bloody and large-scale wars and conflicts, European states achieved internal mono-cultures that grew into rival centralist nation-states, each bound by its own dominant language, culture and history, gradually grown through years of bloodshed and power games.
During the de-colonization period, this rigid mold was used to give shape to European-styled nation-states in the former #colonies, lands mostly unfamiliar with the notions of mono-lingual and mono-cultural ethno-states that became so typical for the European political scene.

#Europe is the midst of its #5G decision, with all eyes currently set on Germany. But there is a second crucial theatre for 5G competition that regrettably gets very little attention: #SoutheastAsia. Thread:
Right at China’s doorstep #Huawei has a long history and market share dominance in the strategically important region. Of the ten @ASEAN countries only Singapore & Vietnam have so far opted for Huawei’s competitors. 1/7
For the less affluent #SEA states cost-benefit calculation is central & so far pretty clear: Huawei is cheap & offers leading technology. For them costs are less tangible: Some #SoutheastAsian states rely on #US security. But how will US react to UK decision? Will it at all? 2/7

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).

[Thread] #Europe just announced it would trigger the Dispute resolution mechanism #DRM of the #JCPOA. This is a big move but my guess is many people in #DC will wrongly assume this is an alignment to tougher US position on #Iran. /1…
On the contrary, the #EU maintains its balanced position btw #US and #Iran in order to keep door open for real negotiations on nuke and beyond. Let’s see why: /2
Last episode : despite the killing of Soleimani, #Iran stayed in the #JCPoA but continued its counter pressure policy on Jan. 5th through its “5th step” going against the nuke deal. The #US asked again #Europe to leave the #JCPoA. /3…

[Thread on a thread] A lot of relevant questions listed by @jasmineelgamal, on which I would add few points :
1/ Beyond the decisions that are taken or not, the uncertainty created by #US messaging on #Syria before and now on #Iraq is making the work of US allies very complicated. Both military and civilian actions c/ #ISIS are paralized by uncertainty. Planning is simply impossible.
2/ Nobody wants #endlesswars and #America has to decide for itself its level of engagement in the #MiddeEast. The #US could be right to call for #burdensharing, esp. from #Gulf & #Europe, but the way it has been doing it makes it difficult for allies to answer operationally.

What to expect for Europe in 2020? As the EU enters a new policy cycle, here’s to a few predictions that I’ve shared with @euronews #THREAD 1/9
The new EU political leadership overpromised by generating outsized expectations that might reveal too difficult to manage:

1. Defend EU interests vs US & China 2. Take the lead on climate change 3. Tackle rebellious EU illiberal democracies 4. Tame big tech 5. Overcome Brexit
1. The #Suleimani assassination is already putting to test the self-proclaimed first EU ‘geopolitical’ Commission, which has lost in few hours the major EU foreign policy legacy of @JunckerEU @FedericaMog : the nuclear deal #JCPOA | the EU will be bystander of #iran situation

A brief #thread on domestic implications of Qassem #Soleimani's assassination by the #US.

Key point: While the person #Soleimani is irreplacable, what he embodied is far too institutionalized to end, and will be continued by state entities and actors in #Iran (and beyond).
1) As already established by many, #Soleimani enjoyed popularity far beyond the 50% mark according to various surveys & polls conducted inside & outside of #Iran. You can question accuracy of exact numbers, but not dismiss trend/tendency showing clear majority approval rate.
2) Scenes of funeral ceremonies/gatherings in #Iran underline this, as seen for instance in

- Ahwaz:
- Isfahan:

Observers will surely dismiss these as state-sanctioned. While they are, the turn-out is very real.

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.
#Bank of Kunlun is a tool of #Iran’s Soleimani, Khamenei and the #CCP kleptocrats to launder money and evade the #US sanctions @robert_spalding @MischaEDM @WarrenPlatts @geoff_p_wade @DanRDimicco @Jkylebass @BenKTallmadge @IndoPac_Info @BoycottHegemony…

1/6 You won. We lost.

But we won’t get over it.

You won a battle, not the war.

You won an election, not the argument.

Your vote share hardly changed.

2/6 You won THE battle because we were lions led by donkeys.

You won THE battle because you had press in your pocket.

You won THE battle because we have a broken electoral system. Your vote share static.

You won THE battle because we came to a knife fight in boxing gloves.
3/6 You won THE battle because you lied & lied & too many voters don’t care they’re being lied to.

Because it appeals to the worst in them.

BUT...more than half the country still does care, passionately.

We loathe you & all you stand for.

European Green Deal: a cynic’s (long) #thread. The EU is desperate to lead at *something* and the new boss says it’s going to be CLIMATE. It’s genius if you think about it: it commits #Europe to goals well beyond its leaders’ political (and, for many, physical) lives.
It hinges on making money out of nothing (“leveraging”) and handing it out to some of the biggest delinquents of the bloc. Vintage EU.
It allows the EU to maintain its favorite game, that of moral superiority based on “shared European values” esp vs the US.
Here’s how this works. When the boss says: “for the next 5 years everything is green” the entire system rushes to make everything green. Now you and I may know and believe everything truly is green. Most policies have environmental impact & ramifications.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

<thread> Four years ago, I went to #Greece to work on a short documentary on the #refugee crisis. I was prepared for many things physically, but I wasn’t prepared to gain a family. Today I want to tell you their story, and why countries should open their doors to refugees 1/x
I first met 6 yr old Menwar when I joined filmmaker & friend Ida Theresa Myklebost to work on her film “Unwelcome” & we found ourselves in a makeshift refugee camp near the Greece-Macedonia border. My laptop was locked; he banged on some keys, unlocked it & stole my heart 2/x
When I took this photo of Menwar, he & his family had been in Greece for over a year after their house in #Aleppo was destroyed in the war and they made the treacherous journey by sea to #Europe. By that time, in mid-2016, Europe was closing its doors. They were in limbo. 3/x
