Que Passa Take off those rose-coloured specs mate! The USA couldn't give a monkey's for the UK. Trump is a nationalist. The USA's interests will come firmly first. We will get as little from the USA now as Blair got in the early 2000's. Brown-nosing to US Presidents (particularly this President) just makes the rest of the world despise us. It gets us nothing. You say we are the 'world's 6th largest economy'. That may still just be true (though hasn't India just overtaken us?) if you measure economies by consumption. That's because we consume far more than we can afford and run a colossal trade deficit. But measured by exports we come a long way down. We are about 12th largest exporter last time I looked. Well below Italy, for instance. The idea that we are going to successfully sell our services (insurance, etc) to India and China is just a fantasy. The sensible place to sell services is to open economies of a similar scale - like France and Germany. If only we could shed our insane 'folies de grandeur' and be realistic about our situation and our future. Older voters like yourself love the nostalgia side of Brexit - the return to the Commonwealth and all that nonsense. But it is young people who will suffer because of your delusions.
Que Passa Dream on! Your bright new dawn is going to bring nothing but poverty to the UK. Mrs May's speech was in parts patronising to the EU, in others threatening. It will increase antagonism to the UK across Europe. The chances of us getting a free trade deal into the EU for goods and services are close to zero. James Anderson, ScoMo's manager, sensibly has virtually nil exposure to the UK economy. The reality is that despite considerable efforts the UK sells very little outside the EU and the USA, many because we have nothing to sell. The reason for holding ScoMo is that it offers the chance to invest in 'anywhere but Britain'. That's why it's doing so well. What a terrible mess Theresa May and Boris Johnson have made of the 'diplomatic' side of Brexit so far. A little more contrition and a little less triumphalism would have worked so much better.
Sterling fall is going to continue to help too with that asset base...
We should not get carried away with this rally, I've just taken 25% off the table in SMT, IQE and GCL in anticipation of a 'Trump Dump' following the inauguration - 'tis oft better to travel hopefully than to arrive, my Granny used to say. Continuing to hold gold.
Great. I hold FB (12% up ytd), AMZN, GOOGL direct.
I admit it...I was wrong to sell and am missing these in my portfolio. However I won't beat myself up too much as good gains have been easy to come by last 12 months.
Tesla surging
Does anybody know when the next announcement will be ?
Nvidia going well
11:24 Am still wary here. Seems the pilots are fighting back with Amazon's conditions. With articles like the above I am waiting to see which way the chart goes it could go either way I think. In contrast to the above I see that Amazon did its first drone drop on the 7th . Of course this company is not just about that firm but as I say am interested but cautious so will not get back in just yet.
