Brexit

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd open a new forum up, now the general elections done. 

Josh Warner had written a great informative piece about the events over the next year: https://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/where-next-for-brexit--200124

  • Brexit timeline
  • What is Brexit?
  • What should investors look out for
  • Formal negotiations begin: March 2020
  • EU summit: June 2020
  • Make or break: 26 November 2020
  • Deal or no deal: 31 December 2020
  • What about the UK’s trade with non-EU countries?

Let me know what you think. If you want any videos or articles on anything specific to help your trading let me know :)

@CharlotteIG,

For me personally investing and trading are two separate activities. The aim for both is to make profits and generate returns but trading is using a shorter timescale than investing. 

Brexit has its complexities and there will be many facets that the normal trader/investor will simply not understand or fathom. Brexit will create trading opportunities which will differ from investing opportunities due to the timescales involved. 

The only thing I would suggest is to make clear whether any videos or articles are meant for investors or traders so that it is clear who the intended audience is. This is just a suggestion and if you do not agree then that is fine.

The big fat stupid idiot Boris Johnson is planning on using another kind of 'leverage' to 'force' people to accede to England's demands.  Rule Britannia and all that b0llocks.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is mulling to use the threat of high tariffs to raise pressure on the European Union, the United States and other nations to strike trade deals with Britain, The Times newspaper reported on Saturday.

I wouldn't worry too much about it, once the Leftist Totalitarians seize power you'll be living in a pod, eating bugs, drinking cockroach milk and working 16 hour days on your laptop controlling robots in factories and warehouses.

Something to look forward to  🤩

Hope nobody here relies on any medication from the NHS.

Donald Trump will put the interests of corporate America first and demand that the NHS pays higher prices for US drugs in a free-trade deal with the UK, the outgoing British ambassador to Washington has told the Guardian.

“Maybe Boris’s relationship with Donald Trump is so fantastic that Trump will give him all this as a gift,” Darroch said. “But are they going to while we’re saying we are not going to have chlorinated chicken, not going to have your hormone-treated beef, not going to have all your genetically modified crops and we are not going to pay twice as much as we do now for American pharmaceuticals.”

 

So basically our future 'relationship' will be based on how much the mob boss of America likes the prime minister.

Sounds really optimistic and empowering.

Britain also says that, as an independent coastal nation, it will not trade away its fishing rights. At the same time, it is pushing for “legally binding” obligations on access to the European Union market for its important financial services industry.

    • Dow's moving up this week  But it's got a long way to go before we see the highs we were earlier this year.  Was 22nd March the turning point for the bear?
