Brexit vote – Six years on: Where are we?


Recommended Posts

While six years have elapsed since the Brexit vote, the point at which all things changed was 31 January 2020, right in the middle of Covid, so it is difficult to gauge the full effect. 

IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with Simon French, managing director and chief economist at Panmure Gordon. French says, under his calculations, UK GDP is three percentage points smaller than it would otherwise have been had Brexit not happened but conceded that Covid has been an issue that’s clouded the waters somewhat.

Brexit --- what was it all about?

The above discussion points out key facts of the time yet there is more behind the scenes mega facts that most people are not aware of when you delve further into the historical bigger picture, and the bigger league players involved in it who remain behind the curtain, so to speak.

Life is not a simple quest of all merrily going towards the same goal. Brexit illustrates this really well, with polarised sides fighting for control and the EU to maintain obsessive control of a sovereign country.

The battle of Brexit was whether a country could be released from the EUs tight grip on sovereign states under its belt. The EU at every turn has fought to not allow countries leaving it and use its PR and big money to advertise the glories of the new 'roman empire' through its allies in member states.

The European union was led by Germany and France to establish the united states of Europe. And the euro to compete and later maybe takeover the world currency status. But the latter will not be the next world currency as plans are to have SDRs take over from the us dollar, once major calmatives occur. Watch this event horizon to come (be awhile yet).

However, it all began in a way that few of today's generation remember their history. We humans forget important historical events too often and their relevance to all the people.

This story's stage began over a 120-years ago. It involves power hungry vested interest groups with their subterfuges looking to gain obsessive control over other competitors, political and economic affairs than their own business interests. Their business interests included into big oil and big banks at the time. On may 1910 a handful of wealthy bankers led by Rockefeller and J.P Morgan had an ultra secretive meeting on Jekyll island. The seven men (6-bankers & a senator) spent days locked in a room, devising a plan that would alter the American economy… a plan that controls the fate of everyone's wealth around the world to this day.

Eventually in 1913 they got the federal reserve system into law (owned by them), to run government financial affairs and to squash competitors and have a fail-safe system should their banks foul up so they can be rescued and protected.

By 1933 the fed was designed to keep on lending or buying up other entities debts without showing any profit or loss account creating an endless debasement system, this is diametrically opposite to controlling inflation in order to maintain the purchasing power of the currency. Over a century's of results speak for themselves, with over 80% debasement of the dollar. Later on it be “said” that the dollar too failed to hold its value just as in other countries.

Note also, that this is totally different from retail banking where all have to show profit and loss, and maintain solvency, just like any other business.

The Rockefeller’s set up the council on foreign relations, chaired by David Rockefeller until his death in 2017. It is from this group that influences all of USA’s major foreign policies. There is a similar entity established in the EU.

At every major financial crisis point (severe bear markets) a plan was devised as a “solution”, such as the Breton Wood agreement, with the IMF establishment to prevent such future calamities occurring. We now have the IMF and the world bank to help “manage” the world's debts.

You might observe that all the “solutions” to date have not permanently solved anything but maintained the similar problems occurring again, and again, but on a larger scale.

With the German elites and their empire domination desires World War 1 began after the archduke's assassination. This was the war that was said to be. “the war that ends all wars”. But with hindsight we should know that that is not true. Later on came the world war 2 to continue German world domination. That failed, however the German bankers realising they would lose devised a master plan for domination in the future, by a peaceful method. Hence was established the European free market leading to a more tighter European common market and then to the European union legal status. The aim as in the war periods, a “take over of European nations” – basically they control everything.

This is where we are today. The aim is still to take more countries in. Britain's desire to break free ( Brexit ) was met with hostile and a very hard nosed and oppressive EU divorce settlement with very hostile EU allies in the UK and amongst the top banks like J P Morgan and Goldman sacks (the one-world-order members).

And foreign policy objectives still create friction and wars around the world. Banding countries has not solved it all. Whatever the system there is it is human behavior that governs peace or war.

If countries want to remain free sovereign states and do business freely then they would not create difficulties and blocks towards that aim with like-minded nations. However those wanting a different way will and do make it difficult via complex legalities or otherwise.

The fed has exported monetary theory practice around the world through formal world leaders gatherings. So if all follow similar theory than all suffer similar mega-problems down the road. Which means that they all need a “solution” or a “fix”. So, who better than the world-order boys to the “rescue”? This will save all their banks from going down. A neat plan, but at a great expanse put onto the rest of the world's population.

As Robert Kiyosaki said, that at the Davos meeting on may 22 of 2022, the IMF stated: “ the world economy is going to hit the biggest financial headwind ...” The world-order groups such as the IMF know what lies ahead and have a plan to take full control of the financial banking world once a serious calamity exists. One likely target will be digital currency and a new reserve currency.

History of empires and world domination has shown that such extreme form of control in few hands eventually leads to their demise and the world around them. It would be sad if they did not now review their history and come up with more constructive plans.

    • Why do you not just show me what I'm allowed to trade? How do people plan investments when you need to trade something to find out you can't? 'instrument not tax wrapper enabled' is a pain. Is it all short EFTs? I can trade 'leveraged shares 3x Tesla ETP GBp' but not the short version of it. I can't use a service like that, it's dumb considering how easy it would be to code in an option to filter out what I can not trade. 
    • Euro Q3 2022 Technical Forecast: EUR/USD Carves Out Bullish Reversal Pattern, But Caution is Warranted Jul 3, 2022 | DailyFX Diego Colman, Market Analyst EURO PRICE ACTION IN BOTTOMING-OUT PHASE? The euro continued to lose ground against the U.S. dollar in the second quarter, extending the relentless decline that began just over a year ago. There are several factors behind the recent sell-off, but the most important have been the divergence in monetary policy between the Fed and the ECB, the fallout from the Ukraine war and negative market sentiment. In the past three months, EUR/USD marked a new multi-year low near 1.0350, a key technical zone that has acted as support on several occasions in late 2016 and early 2017, as shown in the weekly chart below. The pair probed this floor twice during Q2, first in May and then in June, although the bears were unable to create a lower low on the second test amid weakening downside pressure, a sign that prices may have bottomed out around those levels. Although the long-horizon bias remains bearish, there are some indications that the worst may be over in terms of losses for the common currency, at least in the near-term, creating an attractive set-up for traders who like to play "trend reversal" strategies. EUR/USD WEEKLY CHART Chart created using TradingView DOUBLE BOTTOM PATTERN IN PLAY FOR EUR/USD Zooming in on the daily chart, it appears that EUR/USD is carving out a double bottom, a bullish reversal technical formation that tends to develop near the nadir of a well-established downtrend while the overall market is volatile. The double bottom, which develops in the shape of a letter “W”, is composed of two consecutive and similar troughs, divided by an intermediate peak, the pattern’s neckline, where prices, after rallying off the first valley, encountered resistance before pivoting lower on its way to set the second low. In our case, the neckline sits near 1.0760/1.0785. Heading into the third quarter, the double bottom is nearing completion and confirmation, with EUR/USD advancing towards the neckline, a major resistance, the break of which could give a solid bullish signal. We are not there yet, but 1.0760/1.0785 can be considered the line in the sand, so to speak. Focusing on the outlook, if EUR/USD manages to punch through the neckline decisively on higher-than-usual volume, the upside momentum could strengthen, setting the stage for the pair to challenge trendline resistance near 1.1100, followed by 1.1195, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the 2018/2022 decline. Many things will have to go right for this scenario to play out, but the bullish case should not be dismissed despite the pessimism towards the euro. On the flip side, if the euro stalls, resumes its descent and revisits the 2022 lows, the double bottom pattern would be invalidated, especially if prices breach the floor in question and make a new low. In the event of a sustained drop below 1.0350, all bets are off. There is no significant technical support underneath this area, so EUR/USD could be on its way to parity if 1.0350 is violated.

    • Euro Q3 2022 Forecast: Euro May Fall Anew as Debt Crisis Fears Dilute ECB Rate Hikes Jul 2, 2022 | DailyFX Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC The Euro has steadily depreciated against a basket of major currencies since Dec. 2020. Tellingly, that turning point coincided with topping gold prices and the start of a creep higher in Fed rate hike expectations. The US central bank had signaled it was done adding to Covid-inspired stimulus measures. Not surprisingly, the overt start of the Fed’s tightening effort in June 2021 marked the beginning of the deepest drop along this bearish trajectory. The markets reckoned the ultra-dovish ECB would not be as quick to follow the US lead as many other top central banks, pushing yield spreads against the Euro. EURO DOWNTREND STALLS AS ECB RATE HIKE BETS SURGE (WEEKLY CHART) Source: TradingView Then, in the second quarter of 2022, European officials finally signaled a readiness to act as regional CPI inflation roared to record highs. It would go on to hit an eye-watering rate of 8.1 percent in May. The Euro found a floor and began to inch upward as rate hike expectations began to be absorbed into prices. EURO DEBT CRISIS FEARS RETURN AS THE ECB PREPARES TO FIGHT RECORD-HIGH INFLATION Speculation culminated on June 9, as the ECB formally announced incoming interest rate hikes. The central bank previously said it would end bond purchases – a form of non-standard stimulus – in July. Less than a week later, an emergency meeting was scrambled and a mandate given to create a new tool against ‘fragmentation.’ That stopped the Euro’s ascent in its tracks. ECB tightening expectations revived worries about high levels of debt in some Eurozone economies. The spread between Italian and benchmark German 10-year government bond yields widened sharply to a two-year high of 242 basis points (bps) after June’s policy meeting. Managing ‘fragmentation’ – that is, diverging lending rates across Eurozone states – now seems like it will necessarily keep ECB tightening modest relative to global peers. That puts the single currency at an acute disadvantage, suggesting the downtrend is due to resume. FISCAL REFORM COULD UNCHAIN THE ECB, BUT IT’S PROBABLY NOT COMING SOON The kind of structural reforms needed to untie the ECB’s hands – creating a joint “Euro-bond” or finally slashing debt levels in southern Europe – seems distant at best, if only because the critical Franco-German push needed for progress is a tall order. Berlin and Paris are likely to be focused on other priorities. The war in Ukraine and its implications for regional geopolitical and economic stability – most pressingly, the challenge it poses for securing energy supply at a reasonable cost without reliance on Russia – are clearly front-of-mind. Disruption of trade with a key market in China amid that country’s Covid-driven lockdowns is another worry. A hamstrung administration in the Eurozone’s number-two economy complicates fiscal matters further. French President Emanuel Macron managed to win another term in office, but his coalition lost its majority in the legislature. This means that the fragile government will struggle to get anything big done in the next five years.
