US-CHINA TRADE WAR LATEST: PHASE ONE AGREEMENT UNLIKELY THIS MONTH

  • The Chinese Yuan weakened above the 7.0 handle against the US Dollar while the price of gold spiked higher and equity indices slipped following reports that the phase one US-China trade agreement will be pushed back
  • The latest trade war development adds to mounting signs that US-China trade tension is back on the rise
  • Check out this Trade War Timeline for a history of trade wars and their impact on financial markets

Headlines just crossed the wires that the US-China phase one trade agreement originally expected to be signed mid-November could be delayed to December. President Trump has touted the trade deal reached last month almost daily since its original announcement and market expectations for thawing US-China trade tensions helped push US equity benchmarks to record high levels.

The latest report from Reuters citing an official spokesperson noted that a Trump-Xi signing this month grows increasingly difficult to find a location for the leaders to meet. This follows recent news that China is demanding last-minute concessions from the US to walk back additional tariffs in addition to harsh remarks from US VP Mike Pence.
