The timing of this week’s G20 summit could be crucial in an uncertain market. News agencies are quoting World Bank president Robert Zoellick’s assessment that the gathering of the most influential nations should send a "strong signal" that Europe will follow through on plans to overcome its sovereign debt crisis. Zoellick was responding to Greece's call for a referendum on a new bailout plan, a development that he says adds to market uncertainty. Fearing a referendum could lead to “a mess”, the central banker says it would be very useful if the G20 leaders “can send a strong signal on follow-through after the euro zone announcement so as to sustain and build confidence”.

"The level playing field you refer to is non-existent for the most part, with notable exceptions U.K. & Australia. For decades, the US imports more from other countries around the world than we export...".

"The customers play all the firms off each other and then they get the FLTS cheap. No cash for repairs or wages. Only one winner and that's the customer. It was a firm that makes red FLTs that set the price so low 10 plus years a go. All they wanted to do was shift metal and this is where it has got us now.".
Snapman, United Kingdom
"We have a problem with the motor performance. At full throttle we only have about 70% performance and engine speed for driving forward and backward, but 100% for hydraulic functions. Potentiometer for throttle control has already been replaced.".
