The Comment
Keep away from Chime, Marcus, Greenlight, SoFi, Robinhood and other 'neo-bank' type creations!
Same goes for CreditSesame, CreditKarma, Fingerhut, Varo and Self.
Wells Fargo for being caught account stuffing (current ['checking'], savings and mortgage) and more.

Crypto Currencies - utter madness! (see worldcoinindex.com)

Employment numbers (PDF), month-by-month

Think upon this:
The banks in Europe hold THREE times the amount of money that US banks do.
One third of European bank money is in the City of London.
What happens in ONE SQUARE MILE in London is as important as the entire banking system in the USA.
Well, it was, until Thursday, 23rd June, 2016........
My guess? GBPUSD 1.21 [
recent low: 1.1353 / 2022-09-16], GBPEUR 1.13 [recent low: 1.0712 / 2019-08-12]
Crash-out, no deal levels? Probably: GBPUSD 1.08, GBPEUR 1.01. Possibly: GBPUSD 1.01, GBPEUR 0.95.
Brexit reversal? GBPUSD 1.35, GBPEUR 1.21 (short term)
