Student who worked in Chinese iPhone factory explains why manufacturing jobs aren't coming back to the U.S.. ~ 30 Apr 2017
http://www.cnbc.com/2017/04/30/iphone-factory-observer-why-trump-cant-bring-manufacturing-jobs-back.html
If President Trump wants iPhones manufactured in the U.S., Apple will need to front the cost to pay the much higher wages required in the U.S., which means that consumers will have to be willing to pay more. Either that, or it will have to rely a lot more on machines, which won't create jobs, and might end up taking them.

What the Fed’s interest rate hike could mean for your paycheck ~ 19 Jun 2017
http://fortune.com/2017/06/19/fed-federal-reserve-raising-interest-rates-hike-wage-growth/

What is the meaning of Dark Cloud Cover (乌云盖顶)? ~ The Dark Cloud Cover (乌云盖顶), in candlestick charting, is a pattern where a black candlestick follows a long white candlestick. It can be an indication of a future bearish trend.



"If people are not borrowing with interest rate at 0.5%, it is unlikely that a cut to 0.25% or zero will make much difference. However, such a cut would further negatively impact savers and pensioners. QE and low interest rates are deflationary. Why is this so hard for economists and central bankers to grasp?"

The US Fed started phasing out its asset-purchase programme (QE) in 2014, and began normalising interest rates in late 2015. And the European Central Bank is now pondering just how fast to taper its own QE policy in 2018, and when to start phasing out negative interest rates, too.

Why the US stock market has become a drag on bullish sentiment ~ 7 May 2018
http://www.scmp.com/comment/insight-opinion/article/2144985/why-us-stock-market-has-become-drag-bullish-sentiment
  • The benchmark 10-year yield settles above the 3% mark for the 1st time in 4 years, America’s previously buoyant stock market is emerging as the main source of anxiety.
  • Last Thursday 3 May 2018, the index tumbled below its 200-day moving average, a key technical level, for the 4th time in the last month. Having just suffered its 1st negative quarter since the 3rd quarter of 2015, the S&P 500 has barely budged since early April and is still down more than 7% from its peak in late January.
  • The poor performance of the world’s leading equity gauge has had a dampening effect on broader sentiment. Global stocks, as measured by the MSCI All Country World Index, are down 7.5% since late January, with German, Japanese and emerging market shares falling 5.5%, 7% and nearly 11% respectively.
