Britain’s economy is broken. We desperately need new ideas | Tom Kibasi | Opinion | The Guardian
If the country was economically bankrupt in 2010, it is intellectually bankrupt in 2017. On the eve of the general election, politicians of all parties have rarely been so devoid of progressive ideas [...] Yet in substance, May’s approach remains mere tinkering at the edges of economic policy. The Conservatives remain stubbornly allergic to – or ignorant of – Keynesian macroeconomics. [...] [and housing and real estate lending distorting the lending picture. houses are not productive!

​Sweet Brexit: what sugar tells us about Britain’s future outside the EU | Business | The Guardian
Not only has sugar beet been an unusually reliable source of income for 3,500 of Britain’s arable farmers, but its broad green leaves are an important rotational crop in between soil-sapping wheat. If they are forced to compete head-on with what the NFU regards as artificially subsidised cane sugar from producers places in places such as Brazil and Thailand, it fears the economics of an industry supporting 9,600 jobs will unravel. The NFU accuses many cane-producing countries of dumping exports at prices below their true cost of production because governments offer various complicated farm subsidies. But some of these claims, particularly in Brazil, are disputed.

Tesco pulls Sol, Amstel and Tiger from shelves in Brexit price row | Business | The Guardian
The brewer has also faced unexpected pressure from a surprisingly stiff increase in alcohol taxes in the budget earlier this month.

Philip Hammond raised beer duty in line with the retail price index measure of inflation, but used a forecast rate of 3.9%, rather than the current RPI level of 3.2%.

The higher-than-expected duty rise, coupled with increased costs for bottles, packaging and fuel because of the pound’s slump since the EU referendum, is understood to be behind the Heineken’s decision to ask for higher prices.

Mr O'Brien said it was "inevitable" that more companies would increase the prices of products and services.
"Retailers are struggling with increased costs to import goods, and it's something they cannot afford to swallow themselves," he told the BBC.
"We will definitely see further price rises, so if people are in the market for big-ticket items such as laptops, it might be a wise idea to buy now rather than later."

Sterling has lost more than 10% of its value against the dollar since Brexit.
Ms McCall's comments came as Easyjet released its quarterly results, which warned that the company is earning less from each passenger.

It's Official: China Confirms It Has Begun Liquidating Treasuries, Warns Washington | Zero Hedge
[ Richard Koo mentioned in a talk that Fed officials dont know abt extend/potential of upward pressure 4 long-dated bonds once Taper started & bond holdings have to be reduces - put on the market + this as a potential long-term trend! ] // we do have an idea of what foreign FX reserve liquidation means for USTs. "Suppose EM and developing countries, which hold $5491 bn in reserves, reduce holdings by 10% over one year - this amounts to 3.07% of US GDP and means 10yr Treasury yields rates rise by a mammoth 108bp ," Citi said, in a note dated earlier this week.  In other words, for every $500 billion in liquidated Chinese FX reserves, there's an attendant 108bps worth of upward pressure on the 10Y. Bear in mind here that thanks to the threat of a looming Fed rate hike and a litany of other factors including plunging commodity prices and idiosyncratic political risks, EM currencies are in free fall which means that it's not just China that's in the process of liquidating USD assets.

The era of wait-and-see is over. Japanese manufacturers realize they need to move quickly or risk losing competitiveness

Trade deficits in Japan will be a staple over the next 10 years and the yen will face long term pressure.

ECN / no dealing desk

"Policy-makers are keen to shake-up the vast over-the-counter markets in currencies, bonds and derivatives where these brokers operate by forcing them on to electronic platforms as early as this year.

[...] Regulators are keen to force more of these murky OTC markets to use electronic, exchange-based systems to make them more transparent and easier to regulate.

The banks' support of Tradition's new project is partly a response to growing frustration among banks with the levels of HFT activity in the existing platforms.

Tradition's traFXpure is designed to tackle this."

Hidden bank fee of the day, wholesale FX edition | Felix Salmon
If BNY Mellon did that transparently, it would probably be fine. But it doesn’t, and that’s the real problem here. It seems that even at the wholesale level, banks are much happier hiding their fees and profit sources than being transparent about them. Now BNY Mellon and other banks like State Street getting into trouble for its actions with state attorneys general and the SEC, maybe they’ll learn that honesty, in the long term, is a much better policy than trying to get one over on clients for whom you’re meant to be a fiduciary.

Retail FX Comes of Age: Leveraged Trading Is Here to Stay
Retail FX Represents A Significant 7.9% Of The Overall FX Market And Promises Continued Growth.
Aite Group estimates that the global retail FX audience surpassed 8.3 million people at the end of 2010, and that retail FX currently generates daily turnover of US$315 billion. This amount is equivalent to 7.9% of the overall daily FX volume, and is already 32% larger than the average daily turnover for all other equity markets.
New regulations in major retail FX markets (including Japan and the United States) are expected to curtail the maximum leverage offered and bar unregistered brokers, moderating the rapid growth that the retail FX market has seen since 2005. These regulations are also triggering continued broker consolidation, higher standards, and lower trading costs. Conversely, the impact from these regulations is also attracting large new players to the space and setting the groundwork for continued, sustainable growth.

Last week it was Forex.com, now it is Oanda. As a reminder "... on Friday told clients it will discontinue its gold and silver over-the-counter products marketed to retail investors who are U.S. residents. It asked investors to close their positions by July 15." This was first reported on Zero Hedge. "Trading gold and silver over the counter -- bypassing a futures exchange -- offered investors a chance to enter a highly speculative, leveraged market that also left many investors at risk of fraud, according to one trade group. “In order to trade, it needs to be done in a exchange, or it can’t be done at all,” said Dan Driscoll, a vice president with the National Futures Association. The industry group asked Congress for such changes, due to numerous cases of fraud in such contracts. Doing business with a futures exchange offers retail investors more protections and transparency, he said." There you go: it's the extensive fraud that did it.

A broker like FXCM advertises that they are a Non Dealing Desk broker (passing your trade to interbank counter parties) while another, GFT openly advertise that they are not a bank but a dealer. Each business model comes with an array of issues that a trader must understand. Even the rollover rates (used by carry traders to earn interest on their positions) vary from broker to broker. Add to this the multitude of advanced charting platforms available to a trader and sooner or later a trader’s equity is split amongst multiple brokers. Not long ago a survey done by an independent research firm in the UK found that the average British trader has 3 – 4 brokers.

U.S. Treasury Proposes Rule to Exempt Forex Swaps from Clearing and Exchange Trading | Forex Magnates
On April 29th, the Treasury Department proposed that foreign exchange (forex) swaps be exempt from Dodd-Frank Regulation. If they were to come under regulation, forex swaps would be required to be traded transparently on open trading platforms and cleared via clearinghouses. This would necessarily drive up operation costs, some say prohibitively. Consequently, the Treasury Department has argued that “[c]entral clearing requirements will strengthen the rest of the derivatives market, but could actually jeopardize practices in the foreign exchange swaps and forwards market that help limit risk and ensure that it functions effectively.”
