Euro Area`s main import partners are the United Kingdom with 10% and China with 12% of total imports

A no-deal Brexit is not only bad for the United Kingdom but also for the Euro Area. They will both loose on it and that`s why a win-win should be a goal for them both. Populist-Italy is already into a recession, and other Euro Area-countries can follow.

Main imports in Euro Area are energy, manufactured goods and machinery. Main import partners are China with 12 percent of total imports and United Kingdom with 10 percent. Imports rose 1,9 percent in December 2018, while exports fell 2,5 percent in the same period.

According to Comtrade`s database, United Kingdom take most of their imports from Germany. 14 percent of their import comes from Germany and a no-deal Brexit means less German cars sold in the U.K. Total value of German imports came in at $89.23B in 2017.

9,5 percent of the import comes from China and 9,4 percent comes from the United States. Both of them outside of the Euro Area. The value of the import from China was 59,78B, and 59,75B from the U.S in 2017.

When it comes to export, the U.K`s biggest trading country is the United States which account for 14 percent. Second is Germany with 11 percent with France on third with 7,6 percent. Total value of exports to the U.S is $59,09B. Germany; $46,64B.

As you can see, the U.K are in balance with the U.S but when it comes to Germany they buy twice as much as the sell to the Germans. In other words they have a trade deficit with Germany. A no-deal Brexit can end up with less BMW and WV cars and more Tesla`s in the U.K.

German factories will lose money and market shares while other brands and countries will prosper. We will face a radical shift in the trade balance.

56 percent of the U.K exports goes to Europe while 40 percent goes to Asia and America. The economy is slowing down and the British economy grew by 0,2 percent on quarter in the three months to December last year. In comparison; the U.S economy advanced an annualized 3,4 percent.

The U.K trade deficit decreased to GBP 0,32 billion in December of 2018. Imports declined 1,6 percent to GBP 55,85 billion and exports fell at a slower 1 percent to GBP 52,62 billion. Balance of trade reached an all time low of -5749 GBP million in October of 2013.

No-deal Brexit means less Italien Prosecco for the Britons

No deal is not only bad for the United Kingdom but also for the European Union as well. No deal will make them both suffer economically. Populist-Italy is already into a recession and a no deal will not make it any better.

A no deal means less Italian Prosecco for the U.K. Britons bought a record 164 million bottles of champagne and sparkling wine last year, but the effects of Brexit has hit Prosecco long time ago. For the first time in over a decade, exports of Prosecco to the U.K are slowing.

Prosecco is made from Glera grapes grown in the area surrounding the village of Prosecco near Trieste in north-east Italy. In 2015, Prosecco overtook champagne as Britain`s favorite sparkling wine, but it seems like the popularity has peaked for a while.

According to UHY Hacker Young, the Prosecco sales increased by only 5% compared with the previous year which is the smallest annual sales growth since 2011. A 5% decrease in sales isn`t bad, but it is bad compared to several yars of double-digit growth, and this can only be the beginning if we se a no deal between the U.K and the E.U.

Britons consumed 112,7 million bottles of DOC Prosecco in 2016 and exports to the U.K, U.S and Germany accounted for 75% of the sales.

If Boris Johnson want a bottle of Prosecco on Valentines day, he have a great chance to buy it at a normal price, but it can be one of the last chances because a no-deal Brexit will stifle trade and limit choice.

A deal win-win deal will help them both. Italy will sell more bottles of Prosecco and Britons will continue to enjoy a wide range of quality sparkling wines on Christmas eve later on this year. A deal without tariffs.

5G is a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution

The 2019 International CES show started today in Las Vegas, and it will end on Friday, 11 January. CES is the world`s gathering place for those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. It has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years.

This is the global stage where next generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace, and its owned by Consumer Technology Association (CTA). This gathering attracts the worlds business leaders and pioneering thinkers.

(Click the picture to enlarge)

I have been following Apple for decades and I expect them to be in Las Vegas this week. We all know that AI is the future, but how is Apple`s innovation when it comes to Smart home tech? It seems like they are falling behind in the Smart home race.

Both, Google and Amazon are now integrating Alexa and Google assistant into Smart home devices. Voice assistants are cropping up in all kinds of places at CES 2019 and what I think is a cool thing to have is both voice and touchscreen in the bathroom mirror.

This Smart Mirror allows you to access Google Assistant were you can check the weather and traffic, or stream some YouTube videos while you are fixing your hear before you are going out for your next date.

Its brilliant because you have only two hands and none of them are free. Youre fixing your hair right. So, while you`re fixing your hair, you just have to ask the mirror what time it is, what the weather is or when your next bus is coming. All this without using your hands.

Everything is connected and to do so you need 5G, which is enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). Cars, heating systems and even trash cans are becoming involved in the net. 5G is super fast and makes the IoT possible. 5G is 100x faster than 4G and 10x faster than the best home-subscriber broadband service.

You need 5G to run your new driverless car and it`s all based on a computer with GPS built-in it. 5G is nothing less than a revolution. It is in such capacities that it becomes clear why the technologies from 2G to 4G differ so radically from the fifth generation, and that is awaiting us is partly a new beginning and partly a turning point, but certainly nothing less than a revolution.

If this a an average bear market we will se it bounce very soon

It has been a brutal stock sell off in December and so far in 2019, and MSM is telling you that we are officially in a bear market. It seems like the market is pricing in a recession, but it can be too early to say so.

The 10-year Treasury remain below 3 percent and the FED shouldn`t raise rates for the 10th time in 2019. If they push the hold button, I think the market will be happy and bullish again. Just look at the healthy job market and the strength of the U.S economy.

December 2018 was the worst December for the Dow since 1931, but if we avoid a recession I think investors are lucky to have a lot of cheap stocks. It is a China-U.S trade war, and the global economy is in a growth slowdown, but that doesn`t automatically mean recession.

We can see a support for the S&P 500 very soon, and this is also a point were investors pay for their insurance. And that is also a point were the bear market ends. Technical analysis tells us that if this is the right thing right now, a drop to around 2,300 points would likely spark a bounce from here.

Statistically, the average bear market stops right after, or right before it officially began. It remain to see that this is happening again. A closer look at the 48-month SMA, the market failed to bounce in August 2008 which led to the biggest drop since the Great Depression. The same happened in 2001.

Is this drop a new 2001 or 2008? If not, we can see a support just like it did in 1987, 1990 and 2016. The S&P 500 has lost 20,2 percent, and the Dow is down 19,4 percent, while Nasdaq is down 23,9 percent. The Russell 2000 is down 27,3 percent, so the coming days will be interesting. Anyway; this a great moment for day traders.
