It is time for one long #Coronavirus update. I have been resisting doing this as (1) I do not want to add to the hysteria & the panic & (2) I don't believe in doomsday predictions. Moreover, things have been moving so fast, who knows what's what. BUT it's time for real talk...
Overall, #Coronavirus (the outbreak of #COVID19) is REAL. The effects on your daily life from the fallout will be REAL. The impact society, economics, & politics in 2020 will be severe & REAL. None of this is Fake News. None of this should be downplayed. (2/
People who are trying to silence REAL discussion are doing a disservice to the public interest. This is a 9/11 & 2008 level event in terms of its impact on domestic & international dynamics. This thread is not about creating panic but encouraging a smarter response. (3/

There are 4⃣ type of #BREAKOUTS

1⃣Breakout without any retest
2⃣Breakout with a re-test
3⃣Breakout with a hard re-test
4⃣Failed breakout

Following tweets explain each one of those with examples from recent breakout alerts
Wouldn't it be great after a breakout if the pattern boundary was not challenged at all? Unfortunately we have to deal with different type of breakouts. Out of those 2 are easier to manage than the rest.

1⃣Breakout without any retest
2⃣Breakout with a retest

Examples follow...
1⃣Breakout without any retest

A recent breakout alert. A good example to highlight the importance of acting at the time of the breakout.

Great read in @nytimes by @NathanielRich, focusing on the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of #climatechange.

"More carbon has been released into the atmosphere since the final day of the #Noordwijk conference, Nov. 7, 1989, than in the entire history of civilization preceding it."
"By the end of the 21st century, scientists predict that Switzerland could face a temperature increase of five degrees Fahrenheit because of climate change; by then, a majority of central #Switzerland’s glaciers will have disappeared."

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

#Iran has decided to directly respond against the #US assassination of #IRGC commander #QassemSoleimani and #Iraq commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes
#Iran #IRGC cmdr #QassemSoleimani movement was not a secret because it was understood that his killing will create a response.

He was killed in #Iraq by a #US order and #Iran will hit the #US by Khamenei order.

That will drag a wider confrontation

#Iran #QassemSoleimani commander was due to visit #Turkey President Erdogan and had a visit scheduled to #Lebanon.

His trips were known for many. The assassination will not at all affect Iran military and operationally because no one is indispensable.

There are certainly more that I am unaware of.
And certainly more to come.

Let's take a quick look at the work of horror and fantasy artist Hans Arnold... #WednesdayThoughts
Hans Arnold was born in Switzerland, but spent most of his career in Sweden. He's widely known for his horror and folktale art.
Arnold had a very strict Catholic education in #Switzerland, with a strong emphasis on heaven and hell. It clearly influenced his work.

#Thread. Alright let’s deal with the Hecht Op-Ed/steaming pile of crap. First from a journalism perspective it should never have been published. It is a hot mess of exaggerations, fiction, and leaps of conclusion to fit the author’s - ignorant - narrative.
First never mind #Denmark I found the the most puzzling statement to be about #Switzerland, below. The Swiss are not governed by four ethnic governments with each ethnicity sticking to their fourth of the country. This claim, as far as I can tell, is total fiction.
Matter of fact after an afternoon researching Swiss governance, ethnicity, etc. The descriptions of #Switzerland used common terms like “diverse” “a melting pot.” Having been to Zurich it is also very nice and well worth a trip.

Stephan Roh—the lawyer for Joseph Mifsud, a central figure of the #MuellerInvestigation—denied a slew of alleged connections to Russia, though has acknowledged some.

(Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/mifsuds-lawyer…
In April 2016, #Mifsud allegedly told a Trump campaign aide that #Russians had “thousands of emails” of #HillaryClinton.

This info was ultimately used by the #FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation that involved extensive #Spying on Trump campaign staff.
#Mueller took over the probe in 2017 and after 22 months concluded that the investigation didn’t establish that President #DonaldTrump or anybody from his team conspired or coordinated with #Russia’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.

1/ The Senate Banking Comm staff reached out last week regarding @Facebook @Libra pursuant to my @ForbesCrypto article. During a conf call they indicated interest in receiving formal testimony from me. Here it is + summary follows 👇: forbes.com/sites/caitlinl… @DoWithCare
2/ Big takeaway--politicians that weaponize the US banking system (blocking access to disfavored industries/countries) are modern-day Herbert Hoovers bc these barriers block both unlawful & LAWFUL commerce, & these barriers caused the invention of #stablecoins in the first place.
3/ (OK, I didn't actually call them modern-day Herbert Hoovers the testimony, but I digress...) If Congress isn't happy about @facebook @Libra, it can immediately make #stablecoins irrelevant by letting #banks bank the #crypto industry (& I give v specific recommendations here:
