Trade War Latest | China Setting Conditions for Progress in Negotiations
Safe havens have seen a slight pullback with high beta FX (AUD) edging higher on the back of the latest commentary from the Chinese Commerce Ministry, in which they noted that they were willing to resolve the trade war providing the US met them halfway. As discussions take place with regard to a potential face to face meeting next month between US and China trade officials, the Chinese Commerce Ministry stated that they hope the US cancels planned additional tariffs in order to avoid an escalation, while also noting that both sides should create conditions for progress in negotiations. However, while this slightly softer tone from China has seen risk assets broadly supported, risks remain tilted to the downside as the likelihood of a deal is some way away, alongside this, eyes will be on the response from the US.
