Just one week in 2016, it was only five days after I returned to work after taking a vacation, but how does it feel like the world is completely different? Can the monkey year approaching this time to make fun of ‘play’ ?
I heard that the North Korean hydrogen bomb test was successful?
North Korean TV announces North Korea’s first hydrogen bomb test
I went to work two days ago and saw North Korea saying that the hydrogen bomb test was successful? Succeeded! Not long ago, I also read a lot of reports and information about North Korea. It is well known that North Korea is one of the countries with the most backward economy at present, and it has implemented a closed policy, and it has not caused troubles in developing nuclear weapons. Long before, the international community has strongly condemned North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, but North Korea has not been affected by this and seems to continue its ambitious goals set by their leaders. But since it has been created, there is no way to destroy it. A nuclear weapon can only slowly decay the elements inside it into other elements before it will fail. North Korea just stated that the nuclear weapons test was successful, and the Japanese Prime Minister publicly condemned it. On this day, North Korea made headlines in the international news section.
US: Failure to Prove North Korean Hydrogen Bomb Test Success
At first, I had no doubt about this. I always thought that if China and North Korea were not iron buddies, at least they were friendly neighbors. They had also helped North Korea in the past. Even if North Korea created the atomic bomb, China did not need to be too nervous. But the next day, the United States did not calm down, claiming that according to their scientists’ technical analysis, they believed that North Korea had not succeeded in the test, and suddenly the whole thing became interesting.
A-share meltdown The stock market is ‘mellow’
On January 7th, the North Korean hydrogen bomb issue just pulled the front page headline. One thing that related to the domestic economy immediately grabbed the headline position, that is, the A share was blown! !! The two cities closed in advance, and the securities personnel were still blocked on the way to work and were told that everyone was off work. Since January 1, many new policies and regulations of the country have been officially implemented, one of which is the establishment of the A-share index fuse mechanism. The so-called fuse mechanism is to automatically suspend trading when the market rises or falls more than a certain number of points, or you can continue trading but the transaction price needs to be controlled within a certain range. China’s three exchanges, including the Shanghai Stock Exchange, Shenzhen Stock Exchange, and CICC, implement this plan, and set two limit values of 5% and 7%. Interestingly, since the big bull market appeared in the first half of last year, A shares have been ups and downs since July. The implementation of the new policy in 2016 is intended to prevent investors from overreacting when prices suddenly change. The core meaning is to maintain the stability of the stock market.
This policy was proposed by the above three financial institutions since September 7, 2015. The reason is naturally the instability of the financial market caused by the turbulent stock market in 2015. As soon as the New Deal came out, the market opened on the first day of the new year on January 4th. As a result, the Shanghai Index fell sharply in the early morning. The fall of more than 5% triggered a ‘fuse’. The three exchanges suspended trading for 15 minutes. There was no trend of stabilization. At 13:34, a 7% limit fell, and the exchange suspended trading until the market closed. On January 7, at 9:42 am, the Shanghai and Shenzhen 300 Index fell again to the 5% fuse index. The two cities suspended trading for 15 minutes. After 9:57, the index continued to decline, and the decline exceeded 7 in less than 1 minute. % Of the fuse line, leading to the suspension of trading closed early.
These two circuit breaker incidents have caused widespread heated discussions in the financial market. From a different perspective, please naturally have different views. From a macro perspective, of course, such a setting is of good intention. In order to protect the stability of the secondary financial market, it also reduces the probability of irrational investment when the stock market rises or falls. From the perspective of investors, such a mechanism will undoubtedly make investors prone to panic, especially near the bottom, which requires investors to be rational enough, and often when retail prices fluctuate, retail investors It’s hard to be rational.
What’s more interesting is that at 12 o’clock on the evening of January 7, the three exchanges decided to suspend the stock market fuse mechanism because the fuse mechanism accelerated the decline of the stock market and blocked the stock market liquidity. Therefore, it was decided to retract the fuse mechanism. Policies and research on a more comprehensive stock market protection mechanism.
IWC will produce a 55mm oversized pilot watch
IWC 55mm Small Three-Hand Pilot’s Watch
After talking about these two interesting things for the new year, let’s take a look at what is interesting about the watch circle. Not long ago, IWC released the 2016 SIHH’s upcoming pilot watch, and one of its 55mm oversized pilot watches won a lot of attention. 2016 will be the Pilot’s Year of IWC. Three pilots, including 55mm, 48mm and 36mm watches, have been praised by watch friends. The 55mm pilot watch is limited to 100 pieces. It is a replica of the 52-calibre T.S.C 55mm pilot watch that was actually used in air combat since 1940. Because of this feature, many pilots can’t wait to debut.
Will Henry Moser open tears with the apple?
In addition to IWC, Switzerland’s very niche watchmaking brand Henry Moser also played fashion. Henry Moser has been more and more loved by high-end tablemates over the years. Its smokey plate and simple perpetual calendar are addictive. For a long time, everyone thought that Henry Moser would go so classic and traditional. Surprisingly, Henry Moser has just released a Swiss Apl Watch (Swiss Apple Watch?), Which directly uses the case design that is very similar to Apple’s Apple watch, which makes people surprised. From the name point of view, it seems that Henry Moser is going to declare war with the Apple Watch, but this limited edition of Moser is only 50 pieces, made of platinum and priced at $ 24,900.
It’s a sad thing as a little common people
By the way, there is one thing that is not interesting, but I think it is necessary to mention that the offshore RMB price has plummeted. Although the onshore RMB price is falling, the decline is far less fierce than the offshore price. This means that the renminbi continues to depreciate, and it will take more renminbi to exchange foreign currencies such as the US dollar and the Swiss franc compared to the past. This is not a good thing for the turbulent overseas luxury shopping wave in recent years. Further Reduce the ‘saving money’ space for overseas shopping. At the end of last year, the renminbi basket led to discussions, and different views were expressed. Some people said that the RMB’s integration with the international mainstream currency system is expected to appreciate, and some people said that the renminbi basket has little effect on the appreciation or depreciation of the renminbi. At least as far as the current situation is concerned, the renminbi’s basket does not seem to bring obvious benefits to the renminbi. Of course, such international monetary behaviors cannot show its significance in the short term.
What’s your opinion? At the beginning of 2016, the headline said that it was very busy. These ‘interesting things’ happened in the first week. If there is anything left or you have any opinions, please leave a comment below.
