The fiscal impetus from the Trump tax cuts is expiring but the boost from the commitment to increase government spending agreed in the summer remains an important factor.

China’s people are its greatest resource. Education has historically been the single greatest enabler of individual and familial success in most countries and China is no exception. The success of overseas Chinese populations all over the world is in large part tied to their commitment to the education of their children and commitment to a frugal existence, work ethic and investment in property. It’s natural that the same cultural affinity should apply in China.

 

Norway's Krone Hits Weakest on Record Amid Trade Turmoil

This article by Sveinung Sleire for Bloomberg may be of interest to subscribers.

Norway’s krone hit the weakest on record against the euro, surpassing the previous record set during the 2008 financial crisis.

The krone touched 10.1641 per euro at 2:45 pm in Oslo, according to Bloomberg data, amid pressure from global tensions and weakening oil prices.

Norway is Western Europe’s biggest producer of petroleum products and gets almost half its goods exports from oil and natural gas.

Norges Bank has been puzzled by the weakening currency, a move that has allowed it to raise interest rates four times since September 2018. The central bank has increased its estimate on the currency’s equilibrium exchange rate, meaning that it now sees the weakening currency as a structural shift.

Crude oil prices are close to breakeven levels for shale drillers, are challenging the profitability of newer offshore sites and are well below the fiscal breakevens for much of OPEC. That is putting downward pressure on the currencies of oil producers.

One of the most commonly asked questions by subscribers is how to find details of my open traders. In an effort to make it easier I will simply repost the latest summary daily until there is a change. I'll change the title to the date of publication of new details so you will know when the information was provided.
