Given the date stamp on the letter, the time you posted it and the time difference between here and Washington DC you don't even need to check the wording to identify it is as a fake.... graduated.gif

Boris Johnson says Brexit 'deal' reached with EU
QUOTE
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the UK and EU have agreed to a "great new deal" on Brexit and urged Parliament to approve it this week.

Mr Johnson posted on Twitter: "We've got a great new deal that takes back control — now Parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment."

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker also announced the new deal.

"Where there is a will, there is a deal — we have one! It's a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions," Mr Juncker said on Twitter.

Mr Juncker said he would recommend the 27 EU nations endorse the deal during their summit later on Thursday (local time).

The UK and the EU have been working on the deal's legal text, and it will still need to be approved by both the UK and EU parliaments in order to pass.

More to come.

Zero or negative interest rates will do “tremendous damage” to the economy in the long run, analysts warn, adding that the addiction to cheap money has become a problem as central banks around the world go on a path of increasingly lower rates

==================

the shit part of this saga is that all the central bankers knew that well, but for their own personal interests they don't care what happens for the future .................

Australian economy tipped to grow slower than Greece as signs show tax cuts haven't worked
QUOTE
The IMF believes the Australian economy will grow by just 1.7 per cent this year, making it weaker than the economy of Greece, which has gone through several years of depression.

MF predicts synchronised slowdown in global growth, warns rate cuts are not enough to stop it
By senior business correspondent Peter Ryan
Updated about 2 hours ago

QUOTE
Australia has been caught up in a sharp downturn being forecast for the global economy as headwinds from the US-China trade war and Brexit tensions bite into growth.

Key points:
IMF warns slashing interest rates close to zero won't be enough to stimulate economic growth
Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says returning the budget to surplus remains a priority
Money markets see a 41pc chance of a rate cut on Melbourne Cup day

The International Monetary Fund is predicting a "synchronised slowdown" with global growth in 2019 downgraded once again to 3 per cent — noting a "serious climbdown" from 3.8 percent in 2017.

The slowest pace of growth since the global financial crisis is being blamed on rising trade barriers and higher uncertainty from swirling geopolitical issues, which are putting a dent in manufacturing and global trade.

In its latest World Economic Outlook, the IMF says Australia's economy will weaken to 1.7 per cent growth in 2019, down a full percentage point from 2.7 percent in 2018.

And what a *&$ up.!!. This decision will come back to haunt him.

One day he says he wants to bring back the troops from Syria - 1,000.- job done/wants to end the endless wars in Middle East

The next day he announces new troop deployment to Saudi Arabia - 1,800

I fear we are getting closer to conflict with Iran.

This guy is like a wild fire - embers flying around everywhere, spot fires breaking out - some get doused, others left smouldering. End result, everyone (including markets) on hire alert waiting for his next tweet/outbreak.

U.S. outlines 'Phase 1' trade deal with China, suspends October tariff hike

QUOTE
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday outlined the first phase of a deal to end a trade war with China and suspended a threatened tariff hike, but officials on both sides said much more work needed to be done before an accord could be agreed.

The emerging deal, covering agriculture, currency and some aspects of intellectual property protections, would represent the biggest step by the two countries in 15 months to end a tariff tit-for-tat that has whipsawed financial markets and slowed global growth.

But Friday’s announcement did not include many details and Trump said it could take up to five weeks to get a pact written.

He acknowledged the agreement could fall apart during that period, though he expressed confidence that it would not.

Stocks rally as Trump says US, China have a deal
QUOTE
Wall Street rallied as President Donald Trump said the US and China had reached a "phase one deal" to broker a truce in the trade war. The British pound surged on optimism for a Brexit deal.

Wall Street's S&P 500 index ended the day up a bit more than 1 per cent, but off its highs of the day as investors looked toward what comes next. The hope is that the accord and suspension of new tariffs will lay the groundwork for a broader deal that Trump and China's leader Xi Jinping could sign later this year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.2 per cent and the Nasdaq Composite added 1.3 per cent.
