|Osario-aorta live on CNBC at Davos.
Is his presence there a golden opportunity for Zippergate Round 2?
Can he keep it away from where he shouldn't stray?|
I am not sure what you argument is.|
|My understanding is that Donald wants a weaker dollar to make US exports that much more competitive.
But Auntie Janet is laying the ground for three further rate rises this year which, on conventional wisdom, would only strengthen their currency.
Will he replace her and install his own puppet?|
|GYY, look at it another way. Our manufacturing is virtually non existent which makes us reliant on other nations for products.
Do you seriously think the middle classes will do without their BMW & Mercedes or go without their Bosch dishwashers and American Freezers ?
Unfortunately we are just a service industry nation which makes us extremely vulnerable I'd say.
The problem with Theresa May is that so far her "words" and her "actions" don't appear to be going hand in hand with each other.......|
|Theresa May has told leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the UK will be a "world leader" on trade.
But the prime minister also warned that inequality blamed on globalisation was aiding the "politics of division".
Her speech to business leaders and politicians in Switzerland comes after EU leaders said a post-Brexit trade deal with the UK would be "difficult".
The European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, Pierre Moscovici, said Brexit would be bad for the UK and the EU.
Key message was on globalisation
In her speech, Mrs May said the world was enjoying an "unprecedented level of wealth", but many people felt this was "not working for them".
Global elites needed to tackle the backlash against globalisation, liberalism, and free trade because leaders who "embrace the politics of division and despair" were working to exploit the situation.
Mrs May said: "Talk of greater globalisation can make people fearful. For many it means their jobs outsourced and their wages undercut. It means having to sit back as they watch their communities change around them.
"And in their minds, it means watching as those who prosper seem to play by a different set of rules, while for many life remains a struggle as they get by, but don't necessarily get on."
Analysis: A blunt message to global elite
BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith writes: I didn't expect Theresa May's speech to give so much emphasis to the downside of globalisation and, with it, implicit criticism of the international elite.
She suggested that too many bosses were not playing by the rules of paying their taxes, taking on board their social responsibility or spreading the benefits of growth and wealth.
That's quite a tough message when you're talking about people in front of you.
Mrs May needs these people to be on board because they bring in billions of pounds of investment - she also needs them to be confident about Brexit.
Her message to the international elite was fairly blunt: "You guys need to shape up the way you operate - we can't carry on as before."|
|Minerve..Share overhang has nothing to with if there are enough buyers. The Govt 5% is out there floating.
There would be no such thing as borrowing shares and shorting the market for gain if it were as simple as you suggest.
You explain why a share can be marked down overnight by MMs when there have been no transactions.|
|Any one have a clue ??
Stocks in London were set for a slightly firmer open on Thursday as investors eyed the latest rate decision from the European Central Bank.
The FTSE 100 was called to open eight points higher than Wednesday’s close at 7,255.
There are no major UK data due but the ECB rate announcement is at 1245 GMT.|
|I thought they were going to sell some to the public?|
Share overhang is only a problem if there aren't enough buyers - end of story. Morgan Stanley could offload it all in 30 seconds if institutions and sovereign wealth funds found the stock attractive. At these prices they obviously don't and they believe - like me - there are better prospects out there for growth and value.|
|The Govt are still unloading through Morgan Stanley. Lloyds movements are under the control of market makers so these movements are to be expected while there is overhang.
Stock overhang is a phrase used to describe a sizeable block of shares (or, for that matter, of securities, commodities, contracts, and so on) which, if it were to be released in the market in one go, would flood it, and so put downward pressure on prices.|
|Place your bets gentlemen ???
|LLoy just gets kicked around in penny movements...a mega FTSE share that trades in pence...|
|LLOY the "domestic" bank is the biggest faller of banks on my monitor and still falling, as we await international events (nonevents)|
|Lloy needs to find support around 64.2 - 64.3p or else going lower....|
|They'll certainly reduce the need for our Business leaders to worry about a reduction in the flow of cheap labour for the UK job market!|
|I'm sure robots can be trained to deliver groceries- bless them. Do not be disparaging to robots, as they got rights too. Seriously, now have to get to grips with these things.|
|The Remoaners confuse me.
The rest of the EU sells about £70 billion more to us in goods and services than we sell to it, according to UK data — so the UK runs a “trade deficit” with the rest of the EU.
Who has the leverage?|
|I dumped the HSBC the first time they talked about moving our of London, what's the point of holding Lloyds shares if you support an alternative vendor?|
|agreed Graham..it is all journalistic rubbish designed to keep us all anxious.. like driverless cars/global warming/ the Russians/bird flu etc etc ..
they have to sell papers by frightening people......very little that the newspapers print now is worth discussing.|
|Buy English... Invest in a Scottish bank!|
|Even the service economy needs a way for those being severed to earn money in order to pay for said services!|
|The problem is the remainers actually believe the socialist european drivel they accepted unquestioningly from their mostly marxist teachers at"Uni".or maybe even a poly.
How stupid is that!.
If you cant see through the propagandist nonsense you were taught then you REALLY are stupid.
And Roger Bootle . Thicko?
Oh sorry remainers you are far too thick to know a]who he is b]what he has done]
Do us all a favour, belatedly I know, and grow up.|
|I don't think we need be quite as worried by robots as some are saying. How long is it since the spot welding on new cars was done by humans? And yet we're not all unemployed.
In some ways we're going back to the service economy of yesteryear. We don't need to go to the shop, we can get our groceries delivered by Sainsbury or Tesco - which is the way things used to be before the war.|
|Every few months HSBC gets up to publicity mischief....brand profile...|
|Paulbiya..Brexiters generally consist of those that cannot be described as the sharpest tools in the kit.
Why bother posting drivel...had it occurred to you that the guy probably had an account with the UK Midland Bank for years and had stayed loyal.|
