Voices of Brexit: Far-reaching impact on ordinary lives

Voices of Brexit: Far-reaching impact on ordinary lives

Editor: Philip Ragner | Tactical Investor

We cover multiple arrays of topics for one simple reason. The world is interconnected, and it is not only financial factors that drive the markets. Geopolitics is another major driving force behind the markets. Crowd Psychology dictates that if you focus on the tree, you will forget that the tree is part of a forest and in doing so you will miss the bigger picture. For example, George Soros is behind the surge in fake stories, the massive Anti-Trump riots and the funding of plethora of revolutions that seek to change the existing regime.  Having the ability to cross analyse multiple factors with an open mind provides you with a much clearer picture of what to expect from the financial markets. On that note, we think you might find the following story of interest:

No one can claim to have mastered the markets fully and anyone that does lay claim to such a title should be avoided like the plague.   For example, after QE all the rules changed and many time-tested indicators simply ceased to work because the operating environment had changed forever. The markets were suddenly hit with a force that they had never been hit with before.  A fed that was determined to destroy any shred of free market forces left in the market.  This surprised everyone, and it even caught us off guard initially.  Many so-called experts refuse to accept that they made a mistake or could be wrong. Bull Markets Vs Bear Markets & Arrogance

A sheep farmer, a stockbroker, a radio presenter: AFP spoke to 15 people across Europe whose careers are already impacted by Brexit more than a year before Britain’s departure date.

Here is what they had to say about Brexit:

– British voices in the UK –

Pip Simpson, 51, a sheep farmer from Troutbeck in Westmorland, northwest England:

“Since the negotiations have been going on, I feel as though they’ve tried to make it as awkward as possible so other countries don’t see it as an easy option.”

Robyn Ada McKay, 20, a bagpiper studying at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow:

“If I want to study in Europe it’s definitely going to cause a bit of hassle in regards to visas or study permits or living elsewhere.”

Lucy Harris, 27, who founded the Leavers of London social network:

“There’s a negative backlash to Leavers, because they want to ascribe a certain stereotype to us, which is we’re all racists, bigots and xenophobes, and we’re just not.”

William Lynch, 63, an oyster farmer on the Northern Irish border near Londonderry, cultivates oysters on both sides for export, chiefly to France:

“It is important that we do a deal, and relatively quickly in terms of clarifying and giving business certainty. I am reasonably optimistic we will get there, but it will be a painful process.” Full Story
