Interactive Brokers: Brexit account migration = insurance drops from 500k USD to 20k EUR
Is anyone else concerned about this? They are migrating from UK to Hungary, Ireland or Luxembourg: https://ibkr.info/node/3515 Main reason I used IB was safety/regulation. After this migration we lose FSCS & SIPC protection, compensation will be the same as e.g. DeGiro or Trading 212 (20k EUR), for me there is no point to stay on IB any longer as I much prefer Trading 212's modern platform. What are your thoughts?
In 2018 IBKR established Interactive Brokers Luxembourg SARL (“IBLUX”) which received regulatory authorization in November 2019. In addition, we are in the process of creating two additional brokers based in the European Union: Interactive Brokers Ireland Limited (“IBIE”) and Interactive Brokers Central Europe Befektetési ZRt (“IBCE”). We expect the majority of the clients based in Western Europe will be migrated to IBIE, those in Central and Eastern Europe to IBCE and a select group of clients to IBLUX. Currently, provided they meet eligibility requirements, IBUK clients may be protected in relation to investment services under the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“UK FSCS”) at an amount of up to £50,000. As IBUK clients are carried by our US broker, IBL, the securities segment of their account may be eligible for insurance by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) at an amount of up to USD 500,000. Under the EU Brokers IBLUX, IBIE and IBCE eligible claimants may be entitled to claim compensation up to a maximum of EUR 20,000.
Later update - currently for IBUK, the protection amount depends on what you are trading with:
If you trade with forex, CFDs, non-US stock index options or futures, you are protected by the FSCS, up to £85,000.
If you trade with stocks, bonds, funds or US stock index options, you are protected by the US investor protection, i.e. $500,000, with a cash limit of $250,000.

What the hell is with these Forex Traders on Instagram?
There advertisements do not stop coming up on my instagram. They have a very aggresive/in your face style of advertising like putting up pictures of stacks of cash, expensive sports cars and Rolex's. And they all seem to be young people under the age of 25. Surely you cannot make that level of Money from fx trading and if you could why are they advertising it. I know some dudes who do this in my city ( Ireland) and honestly they would have been classed as degenerates long before they got into Forex. What is the story with it?

Hey, I am living in Ireland, 18 years old, and abbruptly came to the conclusion to my time at school. Now I've been thrown into the real world much like eveyone else and during this time in lockdown I've had lots of time to think. For me it's the future, what do I want to do? How long will it take me to get there? But if there is one thing for certain, I know it's I don't want to have money issues, and I could go on and on about financial issues however long story short - I want to make big money. Right now I am considering all options but one thing that I'm really pushing on myself is doing it NOW. Start NOW not tomorrow not next year but NOW. So here I am at 4:34 AM writing this post practicing FOREX on practice accounts asking you guys, what do you reccommend for me and what advice do you have for beginners? And I know reading that can make me come off as stupid or rushing into things which is something I don't want to do I would like to make smart decisions which is why I am here. Thank you.
Hello, I am looking for recommendations for one of the brokers listed by TradingView if anyone has experience with any of them. At the moment I am with DeGiro which does not integrate with TV and I would like to take advantage of the features in TV as it is what I use on a day to day basis for finding and assessing stocks. I am based in Ireland and want a European/UK based broker, but with ability to trade stocks in US, Europe and India if possible. I only trade stocks so forex and crypto trading are not important to me. At the moment I am considering WHSelfinvest and so anyone using them I would appreciate your input, thanks

Waking up early and going to sleep early - I've managed to wake up at 0830 daily to be in time for breakfast and PT one hour later, but that's too late. I need to wake up one hour early at worst, 2 hours earlier at best, because I need to do other stuff in the morning and I'd like for there to be more time between my eggs and my training, without booking a later PT session. In order to do that, I'd need to go to sleep between 2130 an 2230.
Language-learning - I'm learning German, scoring 500 points daily on Duolingo and also using other sources for my learning. I need to dedicate 20% of the same time to Dutch as well and 5% to Japanese. I'm learning Japanese because I like anime and I want to watch them raw. Nothing too serious about, unlike with German and Dutch. I always forget that I have other languages to learn and spend too long on German. To speak in terms of time, this roughly means 2.5 hours daily on German (for the Duolingo part), which I have no problem keeping up. 1 hour daily on Dutch, which I'm always procrastinating, 15 minutes daily on Japanese.
Studying - part of the remaining 9 hours of the day (ideally 3-4 hours) need to be dedicated to prepare for a cultural exam that I have to take. This exam is about 13 subjects. I can comfortably get about 75% of the score, but in order to get a good ranking and move to the next phase I need to get 99-100% right. I haven't studied anything right now and I have about 3 more months. I'm not good at studying school subjects: I have no method, no scheduling ability and no planning ability.
Who? - What of kind of buddy am I looking for?
Age range: 18-30
Timezone: my timezone OR +2/-2
Area: please, Europe only. Not because I have anything against Africans but for reasons listed below.
Means of communication: Discord or Telegram. Ideally, Wire.
Gender: preferably M. Preferably means Fs are okay too, even if they are not the preference.
Honesty. If I have to keep you accountable as well, you need to be honest about what you did and what you didn't do.
Someone comfortable with the idea of having a buddy that is a social misfit. Being a misfit, in my case, also means I'm bad at interacting and making small talk. A long motivational speech could be met with an "okay" as an answer by me.
If we share some hobbies, it might be easier to relate to one another. One of my interests is learning languages, sports are another. For more hobbies, you'll need to ask privately, as I'm already uncomfortable about writing this much.
I don't get along with superficial people and I don't believe that acquaintance = friend.
Optional - More about the most suitable buddy
Ideally, you should learn when you need to be pushy about getting results from me and when you need to be nice. That comes with time, though.
If you're good at planning/scheduling (organisation and structure in general), that would be a great plus.
Ideally, we'll also transition from accountability buddies to friends. That's why the geographic limit. The closer we are, the easier it is. I'd love to visit Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Austria for some weeks or even move there and work there.
Please, PM me if interested. Thank you in advance. P.S. I neither have a personal Whatsapp account nor a personal Facebook. Instagram is personal, which means I don't give it to strangers and acquaintances who are not at least co-workers. No, I'm not going to download KIK or Snapchat, sorry. I don't like Reddit messaging system either. P.P.S. I'm not looking for a group, sorry. I'm not very good with groups. Handling more than 1 person is difficult, more than 4 is impossible for me. I'm not looking to do forex trading and financial stuff like that either.
Hi, I’ve been trading forex using MT4 for a while and making good profits, and I’m looking to start investing in stocks to keep long term now. I’m just wondering what would be the best app to get started with? Preferably low fees, low minimum deposit etc. The only two I’ve come across are eToro and Degiro, are there any better ones? I’m from Ireland
Trump Didn’t Kill the Global Trade System. He Split It in Two.
This article is taken from the Wall Street Journal written about nine months ago and sits behind a a paywall, so I decided to copy and paste it here. This article explains Trump's policies toward global trade and what has actually happened so far. I think the article does a decent job of explaining the Trade War. While alot has happenedsince the article was written, I still think its relevant. However, what is lacking in the article, like many articles on the trade war, is it doesn't really explain the history of US trade policy, the laws that the US administration is using to place tariffs on China and the official justification for the US President in enacting tariffs against China. In my analysis I will cover those points.
When Trump entered the White House people feared he would dismantle the global system the US and its allies had built over the last 75 years, but he hasn't. He has realign into two systems. One between the US and its allies which looks similar to the one built since the 1980s with a few of quota and tariffs. As the article points out
Today, Korus and Nafta have been replaced by updated agreements(one not yet ratified) that look much like the originals. South Korea accepted quotas on steel. Mexico and Canada agreed to higher wages, North American content requirements and quotas for autos. Furthermore, the article points out Douglas Irwin, an economist and trade historian at Dartmouth College, calls these results the “status quo with Trumpian tweaks: a little more managed trade sprinkled about for favored industries. It’s not good, but it’s not the destruction of the system.” Mr. Trump’s actions so far affect only 12% of U.S. imports, according to Chad Bown of the Peterson Institute for International Economics. In 1984, 21% of imports were covered by similar restraints, many imposed by Mr. Reagan, such as on cars, steel, motorcycles and clothing. Protectionist instincts go so far in the US, there are strong lobby groups for both protectionist and freetrade in the US.
The second reflects a emerging rivalry between the US and China. Undo some of the integration that followed China accession to the WTO. Two questions 1) How far is the US willing to decouple with China 2) Can it persuade allies to join.
The second is going to be difficult because China's economic ties are greater than they were between the Soviets, and China isn't waging an ideological struggle. Trump lacks Reagan commitment to alliance and free trade. The status quo with China is crumbling Dan Sullivan, a Republican senator from Alaska, personifies these broader forces reshaping the U.S. approach to the world. When Mr. Xi visited the U.S. in 2015, Mr. Sullivan urged his colleagues to pay more attention to China’s rise. On the Senate floor, he quoted the political scientist Graham Allison: “War between the U.S. and China is more likely than recognized at the moment.” Last spring, Mr. Sullivan went to China and met officials including Vice President Wang Qishan. They seemed to think tensions with the U.S. will fade after Mr. Trump leaves the scene, Mr. Sullivan recalled. “I just said, ‘You are completely misreading this.’” The mistrust, he told them, is bipartisan, and will outlast Mr. Trump. both Bush II and Obama tried to change dialogue and engagement, but by the end of his term, Obama was questioning the approach. Trump has declared engagement. “We don’t like it when our allies steal our ideas either, but it’s a much less dangerous situation,” said Derek Scissors, a China expert at the American Enterprise Institute whose views align with the administration’s more hawkish officials. “We’re not worried about the war-fighting capability of Japan and Korea because they’re our friends.”
The article also points out unlike George Kennan in 1946 who made a case for containing the Soviet Union, the US hasn't explicitly made a case for containing the Soviets, Trump's administration hasn't, because as the the article explains its divided Michael Pillsbury a Hudson Institute scholar close to the Trump team, see 3 scenarios
New Cold War with drastically reduced economic ties
China resolve their tensions, integrate and run the world together
Transactional US-China relationship of the sort during the 1980s
Pillsbury thinks the third is most likely to happen, even though the administration hasn't said that it has adopted that policy. The US is stepping efforts to draw in other trading partners. The US, EU and Japan have launched a WTO effort to crack down on domestic subsidies and technology transfers requirement. US and Domestic concerns with prompted some countries to restrict Huawei. The US is also seeking to walloff China from other trade deals. However, there are risk with this strategy
Other countries like Japan and South Korea to dependent on China. Too integrated.
Raise objections to Belt and Road. But no alternative
My main criticism of this article is it tries like the vast majority of articles to fit US trade actions in the larger context of US geopolitical strategy. Even the author isn't certain "The first goes to the heart of Mr. Trump’s goal. If his aim is to hold back China’s advance, economists predict he will fail.". If you try to treat the trade "war" and US geopolitical strategy toward China as one, you will find yourself quickly frustrated and confused. If you treat them separately with their different set of stakeholders and histories, were they intersect with regards to China, but diverge. During the Cold War, trade policy toward the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc was subordinated to geopolitical concerns. For Trump, the trade issues are more important than geopolitical strategy. His protectionist trade rhetoric has been fairly consistent since 1980s. In his administration, the top cabinet members holding economic portfolios, those of Commerce, Treasury and US Trade Representative are the same people he picked when he first took office. The Director of the Economic Council has changed hands once, its role isn't as important as the National Security Advisor. While State, Defense, CIA, Homeland Security, UN Ambassador, National Security Advisor have changed hands at least once. Only the Director of National Intelligence hasn't changed. International Trade makes up 1/4 of the US economy, and like national security its primarily the responsibility of the Federal government. States in the US don't implement their own tariffs. If you add the impact of Treasury policy and how it relates to capital flows in and out of the US, the amounts easily exceed the size of the US economy. Furthermore, because of US Dollar role as the reserve currency and US control of over global system the impact of Treasury are global. Trade policy and investment flows runs through two federal departments Commerce and Treasury and for trade also USTR. Defense spending makes up 3.3% of GDP, and if you add in related homeland security its at most 4%. Why would anyone assume that these two realms be integrated let alone trade policy subordinate to whims of a national security bureaucracy in most instances? With North Korea or Iran, trade and investment subordinate themselves to national security, because to Treasury and Commerce bureaucrats and their affiliated interest groups, Iran and the DPRK are well, economic midgets, but China is a different matter. The analysis will be divided into four sections. The first will be to provide a brief overview of US trade policy since 1914. The second section will discuss why the US is going after China on trade issues, and why the US has resorted using a bilateral approach as opposed to going through the WTO. The third section we will talk about how relations with China is hashed out in the US. The reason why I submitted this article, because there aren't many post trying to explain US-China Trade War from a trade perspective. Here is a post titled "What is the Reasons for America's Trade War with China, and not one person mentioned Article 301 or China's WTO Commitments. You get numerous post saying that Huawei is at heart of the trade war. Its fine, but if you don't know what was inside the USTR Investigative report that lead to the tariffs. its like skipping dinner and only having dessert When the US President, Donald J Trump, says he wants to negotiate a better trade deal with other countries, and has been going on about for the last 35 years, longer than many of you have been alive, why do people think that the key issues with China aren't primarily about trade at the moment.
OVERVIEW OF THE UNITED STATES TRADE ORIENTATION
Before 1940s, the US could be categorized as a free market protectionist economy. For many this may seem like oxymoron, how can an economy be free market and protectionist? In 1913, government spending made up about 7.5% of US GDP, in the UK it was 13%, and for Germany 18% (Public Spending in the 20th Century A Global Perspective: Ludger Schuknecht and Vito Tanzi - 2000). UK had virtual zero tariffs, while for manufactured goods in France it was 20%, 13% Germany, 9% Belgium and 4% Netherlands. For raw materials and agricultural products, it was almost zero. In contrast, for the likes of United States, Russia and Japan it was 44%, 84% and 30% respectively. Even though in 1900 United States was an economic powerhouse along with Germany, manufactured exports only made up 30% of exports, and the US government saw tariffs as exclusively a domestic policy matter and didn't see tariffs as something to be negotiated with other nations. The US didn't have the large constituency to push the government for lower tariffs abroad for their exports like in Britain in the 1830-40s (Reluctant Partners: A History of Multilateral Trade Cooperation, 1850-2000). The Underwood Tariffs Act of 1913 which legislated the income tax, dropped the tariffs to 1850 levels levels.Until 16th amendment was ratified in 1913 making income tax legal, all US federal revenue came from excise and tariffs. In contrast before 1914, about 50% of UK revenue came from income taxes. The reason for US reluctance to introduced income tax was ideological and the United State's relative weak government compared to those in Europe. After the First World War, the US introduced the Emergency Tariff Act of 1921, than the Fordney–McCumber Tariff of 1922 followed by a Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930. Contrary to popular opinion, the Smoot-Hawley Act of 1930 had a small negative impact on the economy, since imports and exports played a small part of the US economy, and the tariffs were lower than the average that existed from 1850-1914. Immediately after the Second World War, when the US economy was the only industrialized economy left standing, the economic focus was on rehabilitation and monetary stability. There was no grandiose and ideological design. Bretton Woods system linked the US dollar to gold to create monetary stability, and to avoid competitive devaluation and tariffs that plagued the world economy after Britain took itself off the gold in 1931. The US$ was the natural choice, because in 1944 2/3 of the world's gold was in the US. One reason why the Marshall Plan was created was to alleviate the chronic deficits Europeans countries had with the US between 1945-50. It was to rebuild their economies so they could start exports good to the US. Even before it was full implemented in 1959, it was already facing problems, the trade surpluses that the US was running in the 1940s, turned to deficits as European and Japanese economies recovered. By 1959, Federal Reserves foreign liabilities had already exceeded its gold reserves. There were fears of a run on the US gold supply and arbitrage. A secondary policy of the Bretton woods system was curbs on capital outflows to reduce speculation on currency pegs, and this had a negative impact on foreign investment until it was abandoned in 1971. It wasn't until the 1980s, where foreign investment recovered to levels prior to 1914. Factoring out the big spike in global oil prices as a result of the OPEC cartel, it most likely wasn't until the mid-1990s that exports as a % of GDP had reached 1914 levels. Until the 1980s, the US record regarding free trade and markets was mediocre. The impetus to remove trade barriers in Europe after the Second World War was driven by the Europeans themselves. The EEC already had a custom union in 1968, Canada and the US have yet to even discuss implementing one. Even with Canada it took the US over 50 years to get a Free Trade Agreement. NAFTA was inspired by the success of the EEC. NAFTA was very much an elite driven project. If the Americans put the NAFTA to a referendum like the British did with the EEC in the seventies, it most likely wouldn't pass. People often look at segregation in the US South as a political issue, but it was economic issue as well. How could the US preach free trade, when it didn't have free trade in its own country. Segregation was a internal non-tariff barrier. In the first election after the end of the Cold War in 1992, Ross Perot' based most of independent run for the Presidency on opposition to NAFTA. He won 19% of the vote. Like Ross Perot before him, Donald Trump is not the exception in how America has handled tariffs since the founding of the Republic, but more the norm. The embrace of free trade by the business and political elite can be attributed to two events. After the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, a strong vested interest in the US in the form of multinationals and Wall Street emerged advocating for removal of tariffs and more importantly the removal of restrictions on free flow of capital, whether direct foreign investment in portfolio investment. However, the political class embrace of free trade and capital only really took off after the collapse of the Soviet Union propelled by Cold War triumphalism. As mentioned by the article, the US is reverting back to a pre-WTO relations with China. As Robert Lighthizer said in speech in 2000
I guess my prescription, really, is to move back to more of a negotiating kind of a settlement. Return to WTO and what it really was meant to be. Something where you have somebody make a decision but have it not be binding.
The US is using financial and legal instruments developed during the Cold War like its extradition treaties (with Canada and Europe), and Section 301. Here is a very good recent article about enforcement commitment that China will make.‘Painful’ enforcement ahead for China if trade war deal is reached with US insisting on unilateral terms NOTE: It is very difficult to talk about US-China trade war without a basic knowledge of global economic history since 1914. What a lot of people do is politicize or subordinate the economic history to the political. Some commentators think US power was just handed to them after the Second World War, when the US was the only industrialized economy left standing. The dominant position of the US was temporary and in reality its like having 10 tonnes of Gold sitting in your house, it doesn't automatically translate to influence. The US from 1945-1989 was slowly and gradually build her influence in the non-Communist world. For example, US influence in Canada in the 1960s wasn't as strong as it is now. Only 50% of Canadian exports went to the US in 1960s vs 80% at the present moment.
BASIS OF THE US TRADE DISCUSSION WITH CHINA
According to preliminary agreement between China and the US based on unnamed sources in the Wall Street Journal article US, China close in on Trade Deal. In this article it divides the deal in two sections. The first aspects have largely to do with deficits and is political.
As part of a deal, China is pledging to help level the playing field, including speeding up the timetable for removing foreign-ownership limitations on car ventures and reducing tariffs on imported vehicles to below the current auto tariff of 15%. Beijing would also step up purchases of U.S. goods—a tactic designed to appeal to President Trump, who campaigned on closing the bilateral trade deficit with China. One of the sweeteners would be an $18 billion natural-gas purchase from Cheniere Energy Inc., people familiar with the transaction said.
The second part will involve the following.
Commitment Regarding Industrial Policy
Provisions to protect IP
Mechanism which complaints by US companies can be addressed
Bilateral meetings adjudicate disputes. If talks don't produce agreement than US can raise tariffs unilaterally
China uses joint venture requirements, foreign investment restrictions, and administrative review and licensing processes to require or pressure technology transfer from U.S. companies.
China deprives U.S. companies of the ability to set market-based terms in licensing and other technology-related negotiations.
China directs and unfairly facilitates the systematic investment in, and acquisition of, U.S. companies and assets to generate large-scale technology transfer.
China conducts and supports cyber intrusions into U.S. commercial computer networks to gain unauthorized access to commercially valuable business information.
In the bigger context of trade relations between US and China, China is not honoring its WTO commitments, and the USTR issued its yearly report to Congress in early February about the status of China compliance with its WTO commitments. The points that served as a basis for applying Section 301, also deviate from her commitments as Clinton's Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky paving the way for a trade war. Barshefsky argues that China's back sliding was happening as early as 2006-07, and believes the trade war could have been avoided has those commitments been enforced by previous administrations. I will provide a brief overview of WTO membership and China's process of getting into the WTO. WTO members can be divided into two groups, first are countries that joined in 1995-97, and were members of GATT, than there are the second group that joined after 1997. China joined in 2001. There is an argument that when China joined in 2001, she faced more stringent conditions than other developing countries that joined before, because the vast majority of developing countries were members of GATT, and were admitted to the WTO based on that previous membership in GATT. Here is Brookings Institute article published in 2001 titled "Issues in China’s WTO Accession"
This question is all the more puzzling because the scope and depth of demands placed on entrants into the formal international trading system have increased substantially since the formal conclusion of the Uruguay Round of trade negotiations in 1994, which expanded the agenda considerably by covering many services, agriculture, intellectual property, and certain aspects of foreign direct investment. Since 1994, the international community has added agreements covering information technology, basic telecommunications services, and financial services. WTO membership now entails liberalization of a much broader range of domestic economic activity, including areas that traditionally have been regarded by most countries as among the most sensitive, than was required of countries entering the WTO’s predecessor organization the GATT. The terms of China’s protocol of accession to the World Trade Organization reflect the developments just described and more. China’s market access commitments are much more far-reaching than those that governed the accession of countries only a decade ago. And, as a condition for membership, China was required to make protocol commitments that substantially exceed those made by any other member of the World Trade Organization, including those that have joined since 1995. The broader and deeper commitments China has made inevitably will entail substantial short-term economic costs.
What are the WTO commitments Barshefsky goes on about? When countries join the WTO, particularly those countries that weren't members of GATT and joined after 1997, they have to work toward fulfilling certain commitments. There are 4 key documents when countries make an accession to WTO membership, the working party report, the accession protocol paper, the goods schedule and service schedule. In the working party report as part of the conclusion which specifies the commitment of each member country what they will do in areas that aren't compliant with WTO regulations on the date they joined. The problem there is no good enforcement mechanism for other members to force China to comply with these commitments. And WTO punishments are weak. Here is the commitment paragraph for China "The Working Party took note of the explanations and statements of China concerning its foreign trade regime, as reflected in this Report. The Working Party took note of the commitments given by China in relation to certain specific matters which are reproduced in paragraphs 18-19, 22-23, 35-36, 40, 42, 46-47, 49, 60, 62, 64, 68, 70, 73, 75, 78-79, 83-84, 86, 91-93, 96, 100-103, 107, 111, 115-117, 119-120, 122-123, 126-132, 136, 138, 140, 143, 145, 146, 148, 152, 154, 157, 162, 165, 167-168, 170-174, 177-178, 180, 182, 184-185, 187, 190-197, 199-200, 203-207, 210, 212-213, 215, 217, 222-223, 225, 227-228, 231-235, 238, 240-242, 252, 256, 259, 263, 265, 270, 275, 284, 286, 288, 291, 292, 296, 299, 302, 304-305, 307-310, 312-318, 320, 322, 331-334, 336, 339 and 341 of this Report and noted that these commitments are incorporated in paragraph 1.2 of the Draft Protocol. " This is a tool by the WTO that list all the WTO commitment of each country in the working paper. In the goods and service schedule they have commitments for particular sectors. Here is the a press release by the WTO in September 2001, after successfully concluding talks for accession, and brief summary of key areas in which China hasn't fulfilled her commitments. Most of the commitments made by China were made to address its legacy as a non-market economy and involvement of state owned enterprises. In my opinion, I think the US government and investors grew increasingly frustrated with China, after 2007 not just because of China's back sliding, but relative to other countries who joined after 1997 like Vietnam, another non-market Leninist dictatorship. When comparing China's commitments to the WTO its best to compare her progress with those that joined after 1997, which were mostly ex-Soviet Republics. NOTE: The Chinese media have for two decades compared any time the US has talked about China's currency manipulation or any other issue as a pretext for imposing tariffs on China to the Plaza Accords. I am very sure people will raise it here. My criticism of this view is fourfold. First, the US targeted not just Japan, but France, Britain and the UK as well. Secondly, the causes of the Japan lost decade were due largely to internal factors. Thirdly, Japan, UK, Britain and France in the 1980s, the Yuan isn't undervalued today. Lastly, in the USTR investigation, its China's practices that are the concern, not so much the trade deficit.
REASONS FOR TRUMPS UNILATERAL APPROACH
I feel that people shouldn't dismiss Trump's unilateral approach toward China for several reasons.
The multilateral approach won't work in many issues such as the trade deficit, commercial espionage and intellectual property, because US and her allies have different interest with regard to these issues. Germany and Japan and trade surpluses with China, while the US runs a deficit. In order to reach a consensus means the West has to compromise among themselves, and the end result if the type of toothless resolutions you commonly find in ASEAN regarding the SCS. Does America want to "compromise" its interest to appease a politician like Justin Trudeau? Not to mention opposition from domestic interest. TPP was opposed by both Clinton and Trump during the election.
You can't launch a geopolitical front against China using a newly formed trade block like the TPP. Some of the existing TPP members are in economic groups with China, like Malaysia and Australia.
China has joined a multitude of international bodies, and at least in trade, these bodies haven't changed its behavior.
Trump was elected to deal with China which he and his supporters believe was responsible for the loss of millions manufacturing jobs when China joined the WTO in 2001. It is estimate the US lost 6 Million jobs, about 1/4 of US manufacturing Jobs. This has been subsequently advanced by some economists. The ball got rolling when Bill Clinton decided to grant China Most Favored Nation status in 1999, just a decade after Tiananmen.
China hasn't dealt with issues like IP protection, market access, subsidies to state own companies and state funded industrial spying.
According to the survey, 39 percent of the country views China’s growing power as a “critical threat” to Americans. That ranked it only eighth among 12 potential threats listed and placed China well behind the perceived threats from international terrorism (66 percent), North Korea’s nuclear program (59 percent) and Iran’s nuclear program (52 percent). It’s also considerably lower than when the same question was asked during the 1990s, when more than half of those polled listed China as a critical threat. That broadly tracks with a recent poll from the Pew Research Center that found concern about U.S.-China economic issues had decreased since 2012.
In looking at how US conducts relations foreign policy with China, we should look at it from the three areas of most concern - economic, national security and ideology. Each sphere has their interest groups, and sometimes groups can occupy two spheres at once. Security experts are concerned with some aspects of China's economic actions like IP theft and industrial policy (China 2025), because they are related to security. In these sphere there are your hawks and dove. And each sphere is dominated by certain interest groups. That is why US policy toward China can often appear contradictory. You have Trump want to reduce the trade deficit, but security experts advocating for restrictions on dual use technology who are buttressed by people who want export restrictions on China, as a way of getting market access. Right now the economic concerns are most dominant, and the hawks seem to dominate. The economic hawks traditionally have been domestic manufacturing companies and economic nationalist. In reality the hawks aren't dominant, but the groups like US Companies with large investment in China and Wall Street are no longer defending China, and some have turned hawkish against China. These US companies are the main conduit in which China's lobby Congress, since China only spends 50% of what Taiwan spends lobbying Congress. THE ANGLO SAXON WORLD AND CHINA I don't think many Chinese even those that speak English, have a good understanding Anglo-Saxon society mindset. Anglo Saxons countries, whether US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland are commerce driven society governed by sanctity of contracts. The English great philosophical contributions to Western philosophy have primarily to do with economics and politics like Adam Smith, John Locke, David Hume and Thomas Hobbes. This contrast with the French and Germans. Politics in the UK and to a lesser extent the US, is centered around economics, while in Mainland Europe its religion. When the Americans revolted against the British Empire in 1776, the initial source of the grievances were taxes. Outside of East Asia, the rest of the World's relationship with China was largely commercial, and for United States, being an Anglosaxon country, even more so. In Southeast Asia, Chinese aren't known for high culture, but for trade and commerce. Outside Vietnam, most of Chinese loans words in Southeast Asian languages involve either food or money. The influence is akin to Yiddish in English. Some people point to the Mao and Nixon meeting as great strategic breakthrough and symbol of what great power politics should look like. The reality is that the Mao-Nixon meeting was an anomaly in the long history of relations with China and the West. Much of China-Western relations over the last 500 years was conducted by multitudes of nameless Chinese and Western traders. The period from 1949-1979 was the only period were strategic concerns triumphed trade, because China had little to offer except instability and revolution. Even in this period, China's attempt to spread revolution in Southeast Asia was a threat to Western investments and corporate interest in the region. During the nadir of both the Qing Dynasty and Republican period, China was still engaged in its traditional commercial role. Throughout much of history of their relations with China, the goals of Britain and the United States were primarily economic, IMAGINE JUST 10% OF CHINA BOUGHT MY PRODUCT From the beginning, the allure of China to Western businesses and traders has been its sheer size I. One of the points that the USTR mentions is lack of market access for US companies operating in China, while Chinese companies face much less restrictions operating in the US.
China uses joint venture requirements, foreign investment restrictions, and administrative review and licensing processes to require or pressure technology transfer from U.S. companies.
China deprives U.S. companies of the ability to set market-based terms in licensing and other technology-related negotiations.
Trade with China has hurt some American workers. And they have expressed their grievances at the ballot box. So while many attribute this shift to the Trump Administration, I do not. What we are now seeing will likely endure for some time within the American policy establishment. China is viewed—by a growing consensus—not just as a strategic challenge to the United States but as a country whose rise has come at America’s expense. In this environment, it would be helpful if the US-China relationship had more advocates. That it does not reflects another failure: In large part because China has been slow to open its economy since it joined the WTO, the American business community has turned from advocate to skeptic and even opponent of past US policies toward China. American business doesn’t want a tariff war but it does want a more aggressive approach from our government. How can it be that those who know China best, work there, do business there, make money there, and have advocated for productive relations in the past, are among those now arguing for more confrontation? The answer lies in the story of stalled competition policy, and the slow pace of opening, over nearly two decades. This has discouraged and fragmented the American business community. And it has reinforced the negative attitudinal shift among our political and expert classes. In short, even though many American businesses continue to prosper in China, a growing number of firms have given up hope that the playing field will ever be level. Some have accepted the Faustian bargain of maximizing today’s earnings per share while operating under restrictions that jeopardize their future competitiveness. But that doesn’t mean they’re happy about it. Nor does it mean they aren’t acutely aware of the risks — or thinking harder than ever before about how to diversify their risks away from, and beyond, China.
What is interesting about Paulson's speech is he spend only one sentence about displaced US workers, and a whole paragraph about US business operating in China. While Kissinger writes books about China, how much does he contribute to both Democrats and the Republicans during the election cycle? China is increasingly makING it more difficult for US companies operating and those exporting products to China.
Many people don't think about it before it's too late (e.g. transfers just before divorce will be found). What's your strategy? Where do you save? How do you open accounts? I have an accounting in GBP in Ireland (which is free) and is opened using a EU address, and one in Gibraltar so I can keep my money in GBP/GBX. I also have an account in Morocco, but the currency restrictions and stress of their strong regulatory environment and risk of Forex movements means I don't want to keep a lot there.
Hi guys, I am somewhat new to Forex trading and I have participated in a college based competition in my country. I am interested in learning how to trade using the Forex markets. However, I would like to also use this as part of my work towards a Gáisce President's Gold Award (Ireland). This is a challenge which one of the tasks is to learn a skill with a minimum time commitment of 1 hour a week 9ver 52 weeks in which I am required to show measurable development and prove that I have reached some pre determined goals. My question for you guys is if you have any recommendations for platforms that may "prove" my development and show that I am learning or whether it would be best to establish goals for profit margins whilst demo trading then moving to live trading with more goals. If so, what goals would you recommend that would be achievable?
We are all pumped for this thing to get its legs, myself included. Buying ATH stung and seeing the price not return makes me antsy when there are alot of projects making good gains. Fuck em. The bottom of GVT is being bought as we speak and i guarentee the day before the launch we have a glorius green dildo. The dump will happen but it might not be as much as you think. Because while the first wave of gvt is swapped for manager tokens more people will be checking in as the week into launch progresses and if gvt is cheap fomo will continue. I do not think gvt will go under 15$ if it dumps but how high it goes on launch is anyones guess. Whales are retiring on this one do you really think they will let all us small fish dump the price? GVT has all the connections and forex market implementation! Thats ground breaking for GVT and crypto as a whole allowing a way for big money to slowly enter into crypto! ICO was a dollar and holders are up 1400%. At the US announcement sell off it went to 11$ implying that there is no fear looking ahead for large holders and this is just hyeneas fighting for scraps as long they can. I did double my stack during all this but im getting nervous binance is gonna pull a sneaky on us all and it will skyrocket! ALSO volume is almost 2/3 down with knock on wood stability at 14$ ALSO reading the comments from another thread one user mentioned managers might not even market sell GVT but use its value as leverage to be decided at the end of the trading period. This makes a lot more sense to me if you consider how other platforms like bitmex opperate on a large scale. If the manager trades for a loss his stack is then liquidated (market sold) to reimburse investors and hes done. The market sell of that bad trader would then be bought back due to investors gaining more gvt from profit investors while the prices crashed from a market sell. MY FINACIAL ADVICE IS THIS: Have a drink, smoke some weed if its legal and rest easy knowing in a month youre back in the green before bitcoin even starts to take off again! The team is smart, not only are they set up in Ireland the cheapest tax country in the world, they themselves worked their asses off with 2million because they believe in themselves; so should you. Last thing is that OKEX will probably list GVT once its live its the 2nd largest exchange and all our price movement is whales on binance. A listing without a product hurts reputation.
Facebook is exploring the possibility of introducing a feature that allows you to hide the number of likes under user posts in the news feed, TechCrunch writes. https://preview.redd.it/ml3vxxc0zdk31.jpg?width=275&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6707c721eb5bd94cedd34fdb68a4f94c9801af57 The first attention was paid to this by Twitter user and portal expert Jane Wong. She published screenshots of the social network application for Android. The screenshots do not show how many users like posts. The list of people who responded to the post remains available, but their number is hidden. "Interestingly, likes/reaction counts on comments are not yet hidden for now. But this could be due to the nature of this feature being in an early stage of development". Facebook confirmed to TechCrunch that they are considering testing the version without a like counter. However, the company noted that it is not yet available to users. According to the publication, hiding the number of likes can reduce pressure on users and encourage them to share publications more often. Facebook is gradually becoming a social network where users share vivid life events, while Instagram and Snapchat are more often used to exchange everyday information, TechCrunch notes. Facebook wants to avoid cases where users decide not to post, because, in their opinion, they will not collect enough likes, the article says. In April, TechCrunch found out that Instagram began testing the feature that hides likes. The fact that the company is testing a new design also said, Jane Wong. Refusal from likes can become part of a campaign to change user behavior, which currently depends on their number, the portal noted. In mid-July, Instagram announced that it had launched an experimental feature in several countries that hide the number of likes for users' friends. The changes affected Australia, Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Canada, New Zealand, and Japan. Test results on Instagram have not yet been revealed, TechCrunch notes.

I would like to understand investing on a personal level.i dont know if i am expressing myself properly so please bear with me. I have recently started having the ability to save,and I have zero desire to put it in a bank because that's just giving my money to someone else to gamble,so I want to know my potential investment options. anything where I get the value of my money back at the value of what I put it in in the first place (linked to the economy) or with the potential to accrue interest (I expect very slowly). I am not opposed to buying something some one else needs to rent so long as maintenance costs and labour aren't unrealistic,or investing in an index fund (how the fuck do I do that in Ireland ????) I am not interested in stocks or Forex beyond using them as lottery tickets.I have been reading books and posts about finance for like a year now, alot of stuff on reddit seems only to apply to North America and I guess I don't value money the right way because I still don't understand the right way to make a stable cushion for oneself moving forward into the future without having to be extremely frugal (which doesn't work for me because I impulsively will spend all the money in one purchase I save if I feel like I 'saved' it...how bad is that)((but that purchase will end up lasting over a year and being very valuable to me...but like it's perfume seriously)) I have mental health issues that makes being able to work consistently a dubious assumption to make.I totally empathise that you hear these posts alot,but I don't have anyone to tell me this stuff like you probably did,so please share your knowledge instead of being mad :) Thanks
The departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union was a tedious procedure, depending on your position in the government of either entity. Those lower-level officials saddled with the bulk of the seemingly endless bureaucratic work were far less fortunate than heads of state and their advisers, who, having wrapped up the final stages of the deal deemed their work done. Though the European-British Free Trade Agreement, signed as part of Brexit, provided some economic respite, ultimately this was a hard Brexit, with the largest blow coming in losing access to the single market. Self-determination (as much as the EU infringed on, at least) had been restored, but at what cost? Well, at first, seemingly none. But then the multinationals started to move. Like rats fleeing a sinking ship, hundreds and hundreds of multinational corporations with European headquarters in London began pursuing new agreements with nations on the continent. Primary targets have been Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin, and Milan, with several other cities in smaller economies also acting as major attractants for MN investment. Once layoffs and relocation of assets began happening, that's when the real economic panic set in. Even with the EBFTA, British firms were faced with higher costs to export to their nation's largest trade partners, and with the mass-relocation of major service providers, the beginning of a recession started to emerge. Speculation on the GBP fed into itself, and by the end of 2019, the currency had almost fallen to the same level of use as the AUD in FOREX markets. Additionally, the Pound Sterling's decrease in value has almost entirely leveled it out with the Euro, which has only furthered issues with exportation into the EU. The end of MN relocation and the GBP fluctuation culminated in a 5.5% drop in the FTSE 100 Index, placing December 25th (affectionately referred to as "Nigger Christmas" by some) among the ten largest drops in the FTSE 100's history. Projections for the Nominal GDP growth of the United Kingdom are currently quite grim:
In addition to the economic turmoil produced by Brexit, nationalism in certain constituent countries has radically increased, and the political situation in others worsened. In England, the English Sovereignty Party has played a role in organizing massive strikes in major cities as MN corporations relocate and other companies are forced to lay off workers due to skyrocketing costs. Nigel Farage has refused to give up his dream of an independent England, free from a UK that is attempting to still bind the country to the EU through the CSDP and the EBFTA. In a brief statement during an enormous protest march in London, Farage exclaimed that "when we said we wanted Brexit, we meant Brexit, not the false exit that we have been presented with, tying us to the continent with tribute, military and economic! We will see an England separate from the United Kingdom! A Sovereign England!" While the words may not resonate with a majority (or even a plurality) of the residents of England, protests (some involving the ESP) and riots are still exploding across the country, either in favor of English independence or in frustration at the impending economic collapse. Meanwhile, in Scotland, support for Scottish Independence has hit an absolute peak, with support hovering between 70-80%, alongside a major surge in support for Scottish Republicanism. Protests and strikes across essentially every major urban area in Scotland have proceeded peacefully, and the demand for a second referendum, largely backed by the SNP, has similarly skyrocketed. This naturally places the UK in a troubling position - the promises to Plaid Cymru for a Welsh referendum were unlikely to go anywhere, with Wales likely voting to remain within the United Kingdom. However, if Scotland is to receive a referendum, it will almost definitely vote to secede, and if it does not receive its referendum, the currently peaceful protests may rapidly deteriorate, perhaps leveling stress on the United Kingdom it cannot currently take. To add fuel to the fire, Northern Ireland still remains politically paralyzed, though the DUP has expressed a great deal of anger at the Brexit agreement, specifically with regard to the "checks occurring at airports on the island in agreement with both Irish and British requirements". This is seen as the distinguishing line between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK, designating NI as a second-class country within the Union. The DUP has openly threatened to begin planning for a united front against Westminster with other parties in the Assembly in order to review options for still greater autonomy in Northern Ireland in order to tackle the issues created by the Brexit agreement. There are even rumors that this may lead to increased Republican sentiment within the Assembly. Collectively, the United Kingdom faces nationalistic uproar in nearly every country at the same time as an enormous economic disaster. The EBFTA has stabilized the UK's economy to some degree, and economic ties with Commonwealth Nations may further provide some respite. There is no one clear solution, and no one clear direction. Disunity is on the horizon.
