US retail trading app, Robinhood, gives one day notice on a margin call. Meanwhile, PM Boris gives staunch reprisal of EU negotiations, though negotiations continue.
First, Daniel Williams is helping to tackle financial scams.
I'm planning on building a series of PDFs which I will make publicly available for free to help individuals identify financial scams & what to do when they think they have been scammed or have come across a scam.

Michael Pettis writes a long thread discussing China’s, overstated, GDP growth.
Very interesting thread. Capital Economics says China’s GDP growth has been overstated by roughly 12% in the past five years – a very hefty number – while the San Francisco Fed accepts the numbers in aggregate but says Beijing has been smoothing out the data. https://t.co/CwRmSLa20S

Tabby Kinder shares a story detailing concerning government contracting.

And finally, Boris gives lots of bluster over Brexit negotiation.
Germany’s ‘Die Zeit’ notes the PM demanded that the EU ‘fundamentally change’ its attitude in trade talks otherwise it’s time to prepare for no deal BUT the paper also emphasis Boris Johnson stopped short of walking away from negotiations altogether https://t.co/OIsgo6YzaN

Matt Kilcoyne, from the Adam Smith Institute, perhaps surmised the story the best.
So Johnson's statement was designed to give the EU a bit of a kicking while at the same time put on the kettle for Barnier who arrives on Monday.
Matt Kilcoyne Adam Smith Institute: "The PM has done his very best Theresa May impression in announcing nothing has changed"
