The problem I see with the news is that by the time it reaches our eyes, the institutional traders have already taken action on it. Retail traders take actions too late and then sell off when they realize what they have done.

That is how it works. A very negative announcement comes out, say the tariffs will rise, and the markets get nervous.  Then to counter this, they announce talks continue and only a postponement to the phase 1 of the trade deal. There are some that know this all too well and play those announcements, and entice all the small fry into buying and then selling what they bought earlier back to the small fry. There are those that are making money off these announcements, it is the majority of the people that do not. Personally I look at the longer picture and ignore, the very short term blips. I find it more peaceful.

I can’t believe how naive and gullible Wall Street is about Trump’s China Trade talk comments. If Trump says the talks are positive, the markets soar. If Trump says no deal is in the offing, the markets crater. Hasn’t Wall Street learned that POTUS has absolutely no pulse on ANYTHING....China Trade Talks, Ukraine, nor anything else he’s screwed up. And nor do the people he’s surrounded himself with....you know, all the BEST people that he promised to bring in during the campaign. Now I know what he meant by “sad.”

I think it is amazing the way 'officials' from the Trump administration are communicating every up and down in the process. They look like children with words on their tongue. They better do their job and fix relations with all trading partners. But as they are rude and arrogant to others they will not succeed.

The Fed Reserve is propping up the market per trumps requests to help him politically. Trump is as desperate as can be to stay out of prison so he will do and say anything to get reelected including manipulating the stock markets and extorting foreign powers and helping Putin for favors of political help, all in order to avoid jail for all the crimes he can and should be charged with before the statute of limitations runs out. All of this is so very obvious. Trump is a huge stain on our country.

Michael Laino   You are right. Even people in Congress say something messes the market up. Why can't they just keep quiet and try get this thing signed. The more negative stuff that get said by whose in office or Congress then the market suffers.It is a different type of government over there  and the congressman should have not said a word because it is not the United States he was speaking on. It was China and we are stuck in this trade war where anything said can impact the market in a negative manner.

Michael Laino   If the country is doing so well, then how come the FED has had to drop interest rates significantly giving it very little room to manoeuvre as and when there is a recession and why has the FED had to reverse its quantitative tightening programme and peddle back by a third whilst printing billions of fresh dollars every night to prop up the REPO market - none of these things related to a healthy economy - these relate to desperation to prop up the market - most working and middle classes have no savings and are only buying with vastly growing debt - you've been hoodwinked by the Trumpanazee

Michael Laino  So you think Trump is the reason for succes? You think America is doing great? I think America will loose the China war and the economy will be hurt much more than China's. In this world you can do very well by screaming, hurting, being rude and selfish. That is what Trump is. I live in the Netherlands, we laugh about him. Hope he will be removed soon and we can go on with building a sustainable society.

Rob Omes Do you folks miss stealing cookies from your endless ATM? Do you shill for China, and hope for America's demise because you can no longer get your free lunch on the backs of Americans? Sounds like it. Try not to lose sight of who are democracies pledged to defend you, and who are autocratic dictatorships. You might no like what you wish for.

US is attacking China on two fronts (economically and socially). even if trump gets impeached or doesn't get reelected this war just beginning. up next forcing Chinese companies to delist and having american companies pull manufacturing from china.

then many US companies like Ford, Tesla, GM, P&G, etc. etc. will be then banned by Chinese too. Their market share will be quickly lost to the European or Japanese competitors in China.

yes, it's trade wars, currency wars and by the end of the 2020s, full scale military wars - World War III is now in sight. Prepare accordingly. Iran, Russia, China are getting cosy! It may not come to that if of course the dollar collapses and no longer becomes the global reserve currency before that - that will weaken the US so much burdened with vast amounts of unsustainable debt, that they won't have the means to take on China and Co. Buy precious metals and a bit of crypto!
