A positive technical setup for Sterling, in place for weeks now, has been undermined after the currency came under heavy selling pressure last week , with traders cutting back on exposure to the currency ahead of what promises to be a critical week in British politics. Reports out over the weekend suggest the EU-UK Brexit deal is on course to suffer a heavy defeat when it comes to the House of Commons on Tuesday, making it almost inevitable that the government will be forced into requesting an extension to the Brexit process.
Aspen’s biggest commercial-property sale this year came Jan. 4 when a group Florida investors, as well as Aspen resident Jimmy Marcus, closed on the $14.8 million purchase of Katie Reed Plaza at the corner of Hopkins Avenue and Monarch Street.

They all will close in mid-April.
You could also buy a local SIM card or prepaid phone at your destination. It’ll take some extra legwork (you’ll have to find an available store), and SIM cards aren’t compatible with all phones. “Generally, you will get the best deal if you wait until you are there to buy it, but of course you can research plans before you get there,” Kaplan added. “In many cases, a local mobile phone provider will have a store or kiosk at the airport where you are arriving, so if you’re prepared, you can know just where to go when you land.”
“I think the comparisons are quite obvious, we are four — two guys, two girls — and we make pop music and are from Sweden, but we have nothing to do with ABBA,” Ulf Ekberg said in a French television interview in 1999. “We weren’t listening to them in the ’90s — maybe in the ’70s, when we were small kids like this, but we were never really inspired by ABBA. And when we started Ace of Base, ABBA was really out, out out. No one talked about ABBA; especially not in Sweden. But we were really lucky that a revival of ABBA came in ‘92, ‘93 with [greatest hits record] ABBA Gold . And we were out with the first single, second single and the album and then suddenly the wave of Swedish music from ABBA came out together with us and we were riding a little bit on the wave for sure.”

Previously, a rate rise was expected towards September, the U-turn in policy stance was a reaction to the slowdown gripping the Eurozone. Currencies tend to rise in anticipation of higher rates, therefore the policy stance at the ECB is unsupportive of the single-currency at the current juncture. We have heard from a number of currency analysts that the bearish shift in stance at the ECB has seen them lower their foreacsts for EUR/USD.
The goal of monetary policy is to provide countercyclical adjustment, which means monetary supply should be neither too tight nor too loose, Yi said. China aims to keep growth in TSF and M2, a broader measure of the money supply that covers all cash in circulation plus deposits, roughly in line with nominal gross domestic product growth this year, he said. In addition, the central bank will optimize the structure of monetary policy to further support private and small businesses, and focus on the domestic economic situation while taking the international environment into account when setting monetary policy, he said.

New Delhi, Mar 9 (PTI) The United Kingdom’s home secretary has recently referred India’s request for extraditing PNB scam accused Nirav Modi to a court for initiating legal proceedings against the diamantaire, the Enforcement Directorate said Saturday. “Request for extradition of Nirav Modi to India was sent in July 2018 to the UK. The UK Central Authority of Home Office has confirmed that the extradition request has been sent to the Westminster Magistrate Court for the district judge for further proceedings,” the agency said in a statement. A British daily Saturday reported that Nirav Modi, accused in the USD 2-billion Punjab National Bank (PNB) scam, is living in a swanky 8-million pound apartment in London’s West End and is now involved in a new diamond business. Sources in the Enforcement Directorate (ED) said they had been officially informed about UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s move to forward the case to a London court about two days back. The move takes the process of extraditing and bringing back Nirav Modi to face the law in India to the next stage, the sources said. Soon, they said, a joint team of the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) would travel to the UK to apprise the lawyers about the Indian case and evidence against Nirav Modi, in a similar fashion that was done in the case of another absconding bank-fraud accused, Vijay Mallya. The ED and the CBI are investigating Nirav Modi, his uncle Mehul Choksi and others for alleged money laundering and corruption to perpetrate the alleged scam in the Brady House branch of the PNB in Mumbai that was unearthed last year. Nirav Modi, 48, is currently living in a three-bedroom flat occupying half of a floor of the landmark Centre Point tower block in London, where rent is estimated to cost 17,000 pounds a month, The Telegraph reported. The revelation comes a day after Nirav Modi’s 30,000 sq ft seaside mansion at Kihim beach in Maharashtra’s Raigad district was demolished by authorities using explosives for alleged violation of coastal regulation rules. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) also reacted on the issue of Nirav Modi’s extradition, saying the UK was still considering India’s request. India is taking all steps necessary for his extradition, an MEA spokesperson said Saturday. Nirav Modi has been chargesheeted by both the agencies and the ED has also attached his assets worth Rs 1,873.08 crore under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), and has also seized assets linked to him and his family worth Rs 489.75 crore. Overseas assets of Nirav Modi in Hong Kong, Switzerland, the US, Singapore and the UAE worth Rs 961.49 crore have been attached till now, the agency said. The ED had chargesheeted Nirav Modi and others under the PMLA in May last year and subsequently, moved a court to get him declared absconder under the newly-enacted Fugitive Economic Offenders Act in July last year. The agency has sent as many as 18 Letters Rogatories (judicial requests) to countries like Armania, Belgium, China, France, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, the UAE, UK and the US to obtain evidence against Nirav Modi and other accused. “Money trail of USD 927 million out of the proceeds of crime of USD 1015 million has been ascertained in this case till now,” the ED said. It had got issued Interpol’s global arrest notices against Nirav Modi, his brother Neeshal Modi, sister Purvi Modi and company executives Mihir Bhansali, Subhash Parab and Aditya Nanavati.
