Both factors mute the market impact of delaying phase one of China trade deal. Further, she stated her belief that the dollar will weaken in 2020, particularly to the Euro, as the Federal Reserve is on hold at the same time the EU isfocused on using fiscal policy to stimulate the European economy. With regard to the Chinese currency however, a weaker Yuan will likely serve Xi’s political needs to meet growth targets.

The 2X Wealth Group team attended the recent CrushYourBLOCK Money workshop in San Francisco. What’s a BLOCK, you ask? According to the CrushYourBLOCK Navigators…
"Our brains always have a quick pause when they are facing a decision. The challenge happens when too much or too little information causes us to become afraid or confused, and we pause - and then are unable to move forward. We call the jumble in your mind, the alerts, advice, rules, and deep seated beliefs that may no longer be true for you... that stops you from moving forward, BLOCKS."
Whether you need a simple moment to sort ideas, a major jump-start or to be gently guided towards the change you desire - we're dedicated to providing space, tools, process and information to crush your blocks faster
