Yesterday we released a NEW report #WhatWouldNoDealMean.

And, you've guessed it, this report is the subject of today's #ThursdayThread. 🧵…
.@BorisJohnson has said that no deal with the EU would be a “good outcome” for the UK.

This report highlights what it would mean in terms of trade, fisheries, connectivity, the impact on citizens, Northern Ireland, economics, security, foreign policy, politics and more.
On #trade, the two sides would revert to #WTO rules.

We’re talking tariffs, customs checks, and regulatory checks. In other words, increased hassle, increased time and increased costs for businesses trading with the EU.

@CSBarnard24 explains.

#USA #NorthKorea #WashingtonDC #Trade #LEAK

It was revealed on the 23rd that two major US banks had traded a total of about 175 million dollars (about 18.4 billion yen) with several companies related to North Korea under UN sanctions.
Among them were Chinese companies accused by US authorities of being involved in North Korea's nuclear program and helping to escape sanctions. It was revealed by an analysis based on the "Fincen files" of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
The two banks are JP Morgan Chase and Bank of New York Mellon. Some companies have made public that they are engaged in trade with North Korea, and banks may have continued to trade without customer confirmation.

The Epoch Times National Poll was conducted by Big Data Poll and interviewed 2,169 likely #Voters nationwide sourced via voter file-verified online survey panels from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30, 2020.

Here were the findings (Thread👇)…
“Mr. Biden’s edge with seniors has slipped, and the president is outperforming his minority vote share from 2016 by a modest but statistically significant degree.”

#JoeBiden holds a potentially dwindling lead over President Trump, and voters expect the incumbent to win.
#Biden leads among female voters 49% compared to Trump at 35%, while Trump leads with male voters 46% to 41%.

In rural America, where #Voters are currently the most enthusiastic about voting in November, the president leads 52% to 36%.

$GLD $SLV Uno de los factores que han desencadenado el rally del #oro y la #plata es la oferta monetaria M2, provocada por el QE infinito de la #FED y demás bancos centrales, por lo cual, no puede considerarse como una burbuja dichos rallys. Abro hilo. #TRMX #trading #Traders
Otro factor es que los bajos tipos de interés en el mundo, han generado que los #bonos y los #stocks suban de precio y ello ha jalado a los #Commodities pero sobre todo al #oro y la #plata a tener fuertes subas. #TRMX #trading #Traders #trade #Trader #BOLSAMX #SP500 #NASDAQ
Esos 2 factores (QE y tipos de interés negativos) además de generar apetito por riesgo en los inversores, generan una mayor liquidez en la economía, lo que a su vez genera #inflación y recordemos que los metales preciosos se revalorizan con la inflación. #TRMX #BolsaMX #trading

For @AIGemea #GlobalTradeSeries 2020 I had the pleasure of talking to @ignaciobercero & @elvirefabry abt the EU’s trade strategy amid US-Chinese tensions, Covid19, & how the EU can avoid the lure of protectionism & build domestic support for trade.
Key points below.


In response to Covid: “reshoring is unlikely to go very far in the EU”, said Ignacio.

EU too dependent on exports & it’s difficult to localize value chains. But there will be more talk abt strategic stockpiles, diversification of value chains (e.g w Africa) and subsidies.

Ignacio also offered 3 scenarios the EU shd prepare for in light of US-Chinese trade tensions:

1) decoupling,
2) exclusionary trade alliances, tho no decoupling
3) a push for WTO reform.

The EU prefers option 3, obvs.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

1/ Confessions of a retired #trader.

In July 2000 I bought #AMZN at $30 a share. I was a big fan and day trading to pay my startup bills.

A few days later as it touched $45, I flipped it. The trade paid for our parents visit to the US that summer.

My kids found out yesterday.
2/ It was less than a thousand shares. Total gain on the trade - $5k to $6k (in 2000 US$).

Just enough for 4 tickets from Karachi to LA for Ammi, Abba and my two sisters.

I bought it again in July 2001. Sold it when I got wiped out after the market closure post 9/11
3/ Sometimes just for fun, I do the math.

1000 shares of #AMZN at $30 a share. Worth a tidy penny today.

Then I look at pictures of us with Ammi, Abba, Nani, my two sisters with Amin on Malibu beach.

And there is no doubt in my mind.

Best #trade I ever made. #family

1: Understanding the game

Trading is not much different from playing poker game or betting on various other things.

It’s just a structured game where rules are not made by anyone, but needs to be followed by everyone in game.
Understanding those rules and adjusting yourself is a continuous process which will never end. As #SEBI would keep on changing rules.

The important thing to understand is any thing in life if we want to succeed we need patience and dedication.
A 2 hour webinar or 2 day course can’t teach you about #CapitalMarkets or #Trading it’s impossible.

Personally i feel have around 40-50% knowledge about capital markets after more than 12years of trading experience.

"China is nothing like Soviet Union"
In the globalised world all countries, big or small, are interdependent on each other in one way or the other. China and United States being the biggest economies share a huge chunk of their trade with each other.

American automobile giants have production units in China and Chinese manufactures are doing huge business in American markets.
America is the world’s largest importer and interestingly China is the world’s largest exporter.

America is the biggest importer of Chinese electrical machinery and china’s biggest import from America is soybean. The contrast is striking and almost funny.

Think of #Government this way: it exists to smooth economic activity over the cycle (ups & downs). Ergo, it exists for no other reason but to ensure output is close to or at full potential. Efficient resource allocation & redistribution are neccesary but insufficient condition.
Government has two levers it can pull on to honour this so called "social contract". These are Revenue (taxes) & Primary Spending (consumption & investment). In a downturn, as in an upturn, #FiscalPolicy is an automatic and/or deliberate toggle of those two levers...
Ideally, government is expected to always note where the economy is on the cycle (early, mid, late cycle etc) to execute efficient #FiscalPolicy. Should government miscalculate the position, fiscal policy could be misguided (e.g. loose when should be tight)...

Wow! So, having been co-opted by Government during the pandemic - waving through the processing of tens of millions of people's #SpecialCategory #PersonalData without adequate #transparency - @ICOnews now openly proposes favouring businesses & authorities over citizens' rights... Image
We're to be told simply to "bear with" it, while our #rights are trampled & abused.

Look VERY closely at item 5, page 3:…

What deal has @ICOnews cut for supporting @10DowningStreet's #trade ambitions? And what new Codes will it expedite, having taken...
...over TWO YEARS (and counting!) to update its primary statutory Code, following #GDPR?

You could certainly call this is "an approach".

Whether it's "#regulatory", or the worst sort of enabling, is becoming clearer by the day.
