Stocks Bounce Back As Trade War Fears Subside

Defense Secretary James Mattis welcomes Chinese Minister of National Defense Gen. Wei Fenghe to the Pentagon

China and the United States have agreed to keep talking about their trade dispute, the Chinese government said on Tuesday, as U.S. President Donald Trump said he thought recent discussions in Beijing would be successful. "Remember, they broke the deal with us & tried to renegotiate". Plus, there could be more retaliation from China - last time farmers took a big hit.

China responded by raising its own tariffs, and the U.S.is considering expanding tariffs again to cover all imported Chinese goods.

Analysts at Wedbush Securities said that Uber had clearly not had a "storybook start" as "investors continue to grapple with the valuation of the tech transportation stalwart especially in the backdrop of a risk-off vibe on the heels of heightened US-China trade tensions and market choppiness". "We have to be allowed to make up some of the tremendous ground we have lost to China on Trade". Beijing has denied the accusation and accused Washington of protectionism. The move was immediately retaliated by China's new tariffs on 60 billion US dollars in American goods.

China's finance ministry said on Monday it planned to impose tariffs on $60 billion worth of USA goods, or a total of 5,140 products, from June 1, retaliating after US moves last week. Diversifying into US stocks, foreign stocks, and bonds, helps to avoid major losses in any one area.

If approved, this proposal would affect effectively any consumer product that wasn't hit by previous rounds of tariffs.

Volume on US exchanges was 6.62 billion shares, compared to the 7.01 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

Geng said China had shown sincerity by still sending a high level delegation to the United States for talks last week and that China has remained calm in the face of pressure.

The mild market reaction in Asia followed a miserable day in US markets, where the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 617.38 points, or 2.4%, to 25,524.99.

To begin with, the increased tariffs mean more taxes that American companies and individuals will have to pay for the imported Chinese goods.

However, the onshore yuan weakened 0.1% to its lowest level since December 27, 2018, trading at 6.8874 per dollar, after the foreign ministry said it hoped the United States would not underestimate China's determination to defend its interests.

"This is only too belatedly they've accepted the fact that it is a trade war", he said.

US stocks and commodities tumbled after China retaliated with higher tariffs on a range of American goods.

"A clear hardening of attitudes, with state media blaring that China 'will fight to the end, ' has stirred concerns of a protracted and widening trade war", Mizuho Bank said in a commentary. They rose back above shorter-dated three-month bill yields after the yield curve inverted on Monday for the second time in less than a week.

"The question is what's the smartest, most effective way to do it", Van Hollen said.

"I don't think Americans understand that". "All of these price increases ripple through the economy in the form of higher costs for goods and services that are all tied in some way, directly or indirectly, to imports from China". A large number of them are chemicals, food (including live eels), and industrial parts. "But the hopes for that are a bit misplaced now", he said.
