GeopolitiAAUC continues to influence markets

In our Investment Outlook 2019, we identified three themes for the new year: 1) interest rate normalization, 2) regional economic divergence, and 3) new geopolitical regimes.

Below, we put these themes in the context of recent market developments, placing a special emphasis on the “new geopolitical regime.”

Interest rate normalization made headlines in December, as financial markets moved to price in a higher risk of a recession. This led the market to go as far as pricing in rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve (Fed) in 2019. While we have changed our forecast for the timing of the two hikes we expect later in the year, we believe that the Fed will continue to normalize interest rates. The first few days of the year suggest that markets are slowly moving back to a more optimistic growth view. In light of weaker manufacturing activity, our Investment Committee has shifted to a neutral tactical view on broad commodities, with a preference for oil only. We still see a long-term opportunity for commodities to do relatively well over the year.

Divergences in EM equities

As for our second theme, some of the divergences in developed markets (DM) are reversing, while divergences in emerging markets (EM) could persist. This is reflected in performance, with Brazilian equities significantly outperforming markets in Turkey and South Africa last year. We are negative on South African equities and, in fact, now expect the entire Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa region to underperform the broad EM equity index. Yet, we would expect divergences in DM to diminish somewhat in 2019. US leading indicators are starting to provide evidence of this, declining from very high levels and starting to close the gap with Japanese and Eurozone indicators.
Geopolitical events still impacting markets

Most of the geopolitical drivers from last year continue to make headlines at the start of 2019, and are impacting market sentiment. First and foremost, trade tensions between the USA and China continue to simmer. The latest developments would suggest that, as we expected, an agreement is likely to be found before the end of March, meaning that no additional tariffs are likely to be levied on Chinese exports to the USA. Yet, other political issues such as Brexit or the confrontation between a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and President Trump, currently resulting in a protracted government shutdown, are likely to continue to keep geopolitiAAUC in the spotlight.

Bruce certainly has done very good job of maintaining all the servers: f1cx, EO, this forum.

But he told me and is clear to everyone, that he is only "maintaining" exiting feature, no new feature.

Although I respect Bruce very much, I think MTC relies too much on Bruce's decision-making at present. It seems fair, but it is dictatorship. MTC can't turn without Bruce at present! MTC has not really started to turn in practice.

I know this feelings.  That is why my current project NewEnglandcoin strictly follow decentralization and no single person or entity control NENG just like bitcoin.

I am still not willing to give up Marinecoin.  Bruce has done tramendous work for MTC.  If he owns majority of MTC, I am pretty sure community has no issue with that. The key is continuation of project.  As of now, option future trading, f1cx still is valuable MTC eco system. Let's all wait and hopefully Bruce will come and return to MTC dev work.  I also has gut feeling that something personal issues happened to Bruce so that he may need a period of rest or handling before he is willing to return.  Right now is pause, just sit and wait.
There are a lot more CPU miners on NewEnglandcoin  than months ago when I first posted on bitcointalk altcoin mining thread.  At that point, my old linux PC can mine 1.5 million NENG per day on Cheetah.
Now the reward is much less, maybe 1/5 of what used to be.  Still CPU mining can be fun and less demanding if you only do it casually on your own PC when you work or read online. It can be on low resource without affecting other activities.  It adds a reward on Desktop PC or laptop.  Running a full node,  mining 300,000 NENG per day on a PC is still quite impressive rewarding CPU mining experience.

GPU solo miners and small ASIC solo miners probably are the dominant force on DynDiff Scrypt coin NENG mining together with CPU miners.  Big ASIC miners are disadvantaged by the new algorithm hard fork upgrade recently. 
Cheetah_CpuMiner officially suport linux  Ubuntu 18.04  machine.  Readme documentation on front page has been updated on Ubuntu 18.04 CPU mining on NENG:
NewEnglandcoin v1.2.1.1 released at:

This release mainly add feature of supporting linux Ubuntu 18.04 amd64 platform.  For other OS, there is no change on code verses the v1.2.1
