Chinese cuisine is made up of 10 regional styles of cooking, such as Cantonese and Szechuan; Shanghai cuisine is the youngest on this list, but it is distinctive and favored by many. Shanghai, the largest city in the People's Republic of China, incorporates the cooking styles of the surrounding provinces, including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Anhui, and Jiangxi; Jiangsu and Zhejiang have the most influence.To get more news about shanghai cuisine, you can visit shine news official website.

Shanghai cuisine, also known as Hu cuisine, is characterized by greater use of soy sauce, sugar, rice wine, and rice vinegar (compared to other regional cuisines). This is not surprising since China’s finest rice wine is produced in the city of Shaoxing in eastern Zhejiang province, while famous Chinkiang black rice vinegar originated in Jiangsu province. The cuisine is also known for the 1 to 1 ratio of soy sauce to sugar. The presentation is also a big part of Shanghai cooking, as cooks take great care when cutting and arranging the food on the plate.

It's All About the Sauce
Eastern China is home to “red-cooking,” in which food is gently braised in a flavorful soy sauce-based liquid with sugar and spices such as five-spice powder. This slow-cooking technique imparts a reddish-brown color to the dish, hence the name. Many families develop their own “master sauce” for red-cooking that is passed down through the generations.

This deep-colored sauce, however, is not meant to overwhelm or mask the flavors of the ingredients, but instead, emphasize the freshness of the meats and vegetables incorporated into the recipe.

Geographical Influences
The dominant geographical feature in the Shanghai region is the mighty Yangtze river, which flows from Qinghai province in the west out into the East China Sea. The longest river in Asia, the Yangtze River is a major transportation source. Hundreds of freshwater lakes flow into the river and the fertile floodplain wetlands are perfect for rice cultivation, earning this region the name “the land of fish and rice.” Thus, you will find plenty of rice and seafood in Shanghai dishes.

Signature Dishes
There are several quintessential Shanghai recipes, some that focus on the ingredient itself versus the style of preparation. For example, the hairy crab, which is in season during the ninth and tenth months of the lunar calendar (autumn), is a Shanghai delicacy. These pricy crustaceans are best eaten simply steamed and can be found at restaurants around the city. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny, however, since an order of hairy crab can cost more than a prime cut of meat. Slices of smoked fish, called Shanghai Shun Yu, is also a favored dish. The pieces of carp are tender on the inside with a light, crispy exterior.

Xiao long bao (steamed soup dumplings) may be one of the first dishes you eat if visiting Shanghai. The dumplings are presented in a hot broth and can be filled with pork, shrimp, crab, or vegetables. Beggar's chicken is a good example of the slow cooking of Shanghai cuisine as it can take up to 6 hours. The origin of this dish, as legend has it, is that a beggar stole a chicken from a farm and hid it in the mud until the farmer went to sleep; then he cooked it—mud and all—over a fire. Today's recipes don't use mud, of course, but an important step is to wrap the chicken in lotus leaves, parchment paper, or aluminum foil before baking.

Another signature Shanghai dish is lion's head meatballs, pork meatballs simmered in soy sauce and sugar and braised with bok choy. The name of the dish was born out of a banquet for the governor of the state of Xun where the officials called him a fierce lion and praised him for his achievements.

Shangai Recipes
Whether or not these dishes have legends behind them or a long history, they are popular and well-loved recipes in the region's cuisine. Cockle meatballs, for example, are a mixture of cockle meat and ground pork made into seasoned meatballs and then cooked in a soy sauce-sugar mixture. A similar recipe using glutenous rice instead of cockle is the Shanghai pearl ball. An example of red cooking is red-cooked soy sauce chicken, where the chicken is simmered in a soy sauce and sugar mixture.

Shanghai vegetable rice and Yangchow fried rice are two very different dishes; the Shanghai vegetable rice includes the signature soy sauce and sugar while the Yanchow fried rice (from the Jiangsu region) doesn't contain either ingredient and is more about the egg.

Companies that want to do business in China have long made compromises in the pursuit of success. Now an escalating diplomatic dispute over human rights is underscoring the stark choice facing Western executives: put profit or principles first.To get more China business news, you can visit shine news official website.

The strains over Xinjiang — where US, EU and UK authorities have accused the Chinese government of repressing Uyghurs and other minority groups through forced labor, mass detention and sterilization — has ensnared a growing number of businesses and trade relationships in recent months.
Beijing has vehemently denied all the allegations, and says its camps in the region are "vocational training centers" designed to combat terrorism and religious extremism. But last week, a landmark investment deal between the European Union and China was cast into doubt after officials traded sanctions over Xinjiang.
Days later, H&M (HNNMY), Nike (NKE), Adidas (ADDDF) and other Western retailers were threatened with a boycott in China because of the stand they had taken against the alleged use of forced labor to produce cotton in Xinjiang. H&M (HNNMY) was even dropped by major Chinese e-commerce stores.We are working together with our colleagues in China to do everything we can to manage the current challenges and find a way forward," H&M said in a statement Wednesday.
Beijing has made it clear that multinational corporations have to follow its rules if they wish to operate in the country, and gaining favor can require anything from abiding by restrictive regulations to saying a few good words about China. Many companies have traditionally been willing to play along, given how enticing the giant economy is as a market for everything from cars and clothes to movies and luxury goods.But the escalating political blowback may make some of those relationships untenable. Just as China has whipped its citizens into a nationalist frenzy over Xinjiang, customers, lawmakers and investors are stepping up the pressure on Western companies to scrutinize their supply chains for evidence of human rights abuses. That's making it hard for companies to avoid picking sides.
"These companies are just squeezed in the middle and there is no magic answer," said James McGregor, chairman of consulting firm APCO Worldwide's greater China division. "I think China's feeling really threatened by all of these sanctions, and has decided just to hit back as strongly as they can to try to get these companies to influence their governments to kind of tone down and back off."Foreign companies cannot simply ignore the world's second largest economy. Its growing middle class is a rich consumer market for many firms.
"Accessing the internal market in China has always been the draw," said Bonnie Glaser, a senior adviser for Asia and the director of the China Power Project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "Years ago, when companies first started coming to China — even if they weren't making money for a number of years — they stayed because eventually the people are going to have more money and going to be able to spend."
But breaking into China also means winning over notoriously strict regulators who wield vast control over who gets to enter and what they get to do.
International firms are often forced to concede certain aspects of their business before they're allowed access to the market, including through joint ventures established with local partners. While some rules have been eased in recent years, they're still a source of tension for companies who complain that such arrangements force them to give up technology in exchange for entry.
Other companies have been locked out altogether because of a refusal to adhere to rules. Google (GOOGL), for example, offered search in China from 2006 to 2010 with censored results, but was eventually blocked when the company decided it would end that practice. Several years later, it considered returning to China, but was heavily criticized by human rights groups wary of the ruling Chinese Communist Party's vast censorship apparatus.

Investors may be wondering if this is the start of a larger decline; according to the chart below the answer is no. The top window is the NYSE Summation index. Markets weaken first before a large decline begins. The weakness comes in the form of the advance/Decline which is the components of the Summation index above. Large declines can begin when the McClellan Summation index falls below 0 (noted with blue vertical lines). Current McClellan Summation index stands at +745 and in a relative strong position.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

Yesterday we said, “Since mid April the SPY has made higher highs and the VIX has made higher lows, which is a short term divergence. The bottom window shows this divergence more clearly which is the SPY/VIX ratio. When this ratio is moving higher than everything is in sink and a bullish sign for the market. The SPY/VIX ratio peaked in mid April and has modestly moved lower and a bearish short term sign.” As of today this ratio is still moving down and remains short term bearish. We noticed at previous important lows the SPY will make lower lows and the VIX will make lower highs which are a positive divergence (see early and late March VIX divergence on chart This same setup may develop on the next low in the SPY (SPX). There is support on the SPY near the 410 level which is the mid April low.
The chart below looks into the strength for GDX. The second window up from the bottom is the Up Down volume for GDX with a 50 day average. We shaded light pink when its below “0” and when price are usually declining. This indicator has been below “0” since last August. A bullish sign is present though as the Up Down Volume indicator has been rising since the March low. To get back to totally bullish this indicator needs to close and hold above “0”. Next window up is the Advance/Decline with a 50 day average and works the same was as the Up Down Volume indicator. It too has been rising since the March low and near the “0” level now. Seasonality wise May is not a good month for Gold and Gold stocks. What could be forming here is a Head and Shoulders bottom pattern where the Head is the March low. The next 30 days or so the Right Shoulder may form and when the Neckline of this potential Head and Shoulders bottom is exceeded is when the Up Down Volume and Advance/Decline indictors break and hold above “0”. Bigger picture is bullish, but there is a chance of a sideways pattern this month. Long GDX (10/9/20 at 40.78).

The Cuyahoga County (U.S. state of Ohio) Scam Squad and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) have issued a public warning as scammers began to actively use Bitcoin (BTC) ATMs to defraud people, TV channel News 5 Cleveland reported on Tuesday.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

  “Now scammers are asking you to pay in Bitcoin,” said Sheryl Harris, director of the Cuyahoga County Department of Consumer Affairs.

Old scams, new tools
  According to the report, while scammers still rely on tried-and-true methods—such as calls from someones “son” who ostensibly “got into an accident and urgently needs money”—cryptocurrencies allowed them to put a new spin on old frauds.

  For example, Bitcoin ATMs, which allow customers to instantly buy BTC with cash, have already become widespread in the U.S. Thanks to this, many malicious actors are now trying to convince people to withdraw funds from their bank, go to a Bitcoin ATM, and send a certain amount of coins via a QR code provided by the scammer.

  “I got a call that sounded exactly like my son,” said Shaker Heights, who almost fell victim to such a scam, adding, “The shopkeeper comes up and says ‘can I help you?’ I said we have to send money to an attorney with this machine and he‘s like you’re getting scammed.”

  The scammer—who stayed on the phone the whole time—asked Heights to deposit $9,000 via a Bitcoin ATM. If the shopkeeper hadnt stopped him, that money would almost certainly be lost forever.

  “Unfortunately, once that money is gone, it‘s almost impossible to get it back, so the best we can do is prevention and that’s why were trying to get the word out,” said FBI special agent Vicki Anderson.

Warning signs on Bitcoin ATMs
  To tackle this problem, law enforcement agents and the FBI now plan to put special warning signs on Bitcoin ATMs across the county, motivating people to consider whether they are actually being scammed.

  “The point of the signs is to just give people a chance to pause, like wait a minute. The government isn‘t going to ask you for Bitcoin, they just won’t, the jail won‘t ask you to pay in Bitcoin and your utility company doesn’t accept Bitcoin payments,” Harris added.

  Meanwhile, more often than not scammers prefer to go after users‘ crypto holdings directly. As CryptoSlate reported recently, Apple’s App Store customers have lost over $1.6 million worth of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to hackers.

MT4 is commonly used in forex trading but do you know it comprehensively? As such, WikiFX unveils several secrets of MT4 as follows to help you find forex brokers suitable for you!To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

  Quantity and location of MT4 server

  1) MT4 servers of giant forex brokers are often located in the U.S. or the U.K., followed by EU member states or Singapore.

  2) The quantity of official MT4 servers is generally more than three.

  Influences of the distance from servers on forex trading

  The shorter the distance from servers is, the faster the execution of trading will be. Trading orders have to be transferred to servers for processing once they are made, leading to the situation where the execution time must be affected by the distance from servers, making a delay inevitable.

  Data processing centre of MT4 servers

  It can solve the above-mentioned delay. As a proxy server, the data processing centre saves the connecting time between clients and main servers, completing the order processing in a direct manner. Therefore, the work efficiency of MT4 servers can be enhanced.

  In addition, this centre still works to strengthen the protection on trading when main servers are intruded into.

  You can ask forex brokers about the way they set up their servers and data processing centers, thereby identifying whether they are reliable based on this information!

USD/CAD has traded in a relatively narrow range between 1.2351 and 1.2252 since Thursday last week but now looks well placed to resume its previous decline that took it from almost 1.34 in late October last year down to current levels.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

  Looking at the chart below, the recent stability looks like a period of consolidation that could well be followed by falls that could reach as far as the 1.2062 low recorded in September 2017 that looks now like a reasonable long-term target for the pair.
Behind the strength of the Canadian Dollar lies the advance in crude oil prices, which have benefited from higher demand – along with commodities such copper, iron ore and aluminum – as the global economy recovers after the downturn caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Oil is Canadas largest export by some distance.

  As the next chart shows, the price of US crude has popped higher from a symmetrical triangle continuation pattern that can be thought of as signaling a resumption of the prior trend higher.

EUR/USD has been turning up from the 4-day micro wedge and double bottom bull flag (with Apr. 22 low). After consecutive wedge tops, we should get a 2nd leg sideways to down, and it should start within a few days. Traders expect a double top bear flag with the May 3 high, or a double top with the Apr. 29 high.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

  If bulls get a breakout above the Apr. 29 high, which would still be in the 9-month trading range, it should continue for at least a couple more months.

  Traders will look for a reversal down from the wedge top (1st of 2 legs up were at the Mar. 18 high and Apr. 29 highs), which would be a double top with the Feb. 25 high.

  The 2-day reversal up should reach the May 3 high. Traders will then decide between a double top bear flag, or continuing up to the Apr. 29 or Feb. 25 high.
Strong breakout to far above yesterdays high. Should reach magnet of May 3 high today or tomorrow.

  Overnight bull trend has been strong so day traders have only been buying.

  Near top of 4-day trading range, so bulls will start to take profits. Overnight rally should then evolve into trading range.

  Once there has been 20-pip pullback, day traders will expect a trading range, and they will begin to sell for scalps.

Even if there is a trading range, the odds of a resumption up will be greater than of a reversal down, so easier to make money buying reversals up from bottom of range, than selling reversals down.

Bitcoin has been struggling to resume its late-April bounce, continuing to idle around the 57563 inflection point set back in February. This is leaving its breakdown out of a bearish Rising Wedge still in play, hinting that BTC/USD remains at risk. Having said that, the 100-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) is maintaining the long-term focus to the upside.To get more news about WikiFX, you can visit wikifx.com official website.

  A push above the 57563 inflection point could open the door to revisiting the March peak at 61788 which may act as another inflection level before facing the all-time high set last month. Beyond the latter is the 61.8% Fibonacci extension at 69395. On the other hand, resuming last months top entails taking out the April low at 47044, aiming for the key 44850 – 43016 support zone.
Ethereum has been extending gains into record all-time highs, but near-term momentum seems to be fading. ETH/USD left behind a Doji candlestick, which is a sign of indecision. This is as negative RSI divergence hints at a top. Immediate support appears to be the 78.6% Fibonacci extension at 3400, with the 61.8% level under that at 3090.

  Below that, the 20 and 50-day SMAs could reinstate the dominant focus to the upside in the event of a material turn lower. On the other hand, overturning warnings signs from the Doji and RSI divergence places the focus in immediate resistance at 3795. Beyond that sits the 123.6% Fibonacci extension at 4230.
Litecoin also extended recent gains, pushing price action closer to the all-time high set in 2017 at 370.78. But, LTC/USD left behind a Hanging Man candlestick pattern. This can be an early warning sign of a top when it appears within an uptrend. This is also coupled with negative RSI divergence, showing fading upside momentum which can at times precede a turn lower.

  Immediate support could be the April high at 335.36, which may come into play as an inflection point. Under that sits the 2018 peak which acted as resistance in the middle of April. Further losses from there could place the focus on the 20-day SMA, which may reinstate the upside focus. Otherwise, pushing into new all-time highs would expose the 123.6% Fibonacci extension at 414.
