China ministerial trade talks to start

China ministerial trade talks to start

The meeting will be the first among senior negotiators since July.

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to raise tariffs on $250 billion worth of Chinese goods on October 15 if no progress is made in the on-again, off-again negotiations.

Liu is still set to leave on Friday evening, CNBC said, citing a US official.

But the atmosphere for the high-stakes parley was shifting rapidly.

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is on the wires now, via Xinhua, making some comments amidst the trade talks with his USA counterparts. At this point, the market found buyers, mainly due to the idea that there was a false rumor out there suggesting that the Chinese were leaving the trade talks with the Americans rather quickly.

Still, there was no hiding the sharp deterioration in relations this week.

A currency agreement would likely follow one that was largely agreed in February by Washington and Beijing that would parallel China's prior G20 pledges to avoid currency manipulation to gain a trade advantage, said Craig Allen, president of the U.S.

China-US economic and trade relations are very important, with global influence. "I meet with the Vice Premier tomorrow at The White House", Trump said on Twitter. A day later, the U.S. State Department imposed visa restrictions on Chinese officials related to the Xinjiang issue.

Indonesian security minister stabbed by man with knife
According to Indonesia's State Intelligence Agency (BIN) the man had been monitored for a while before attacking Wiranto. Wiranto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, is reportedly in stable condition.

But Trump's attitude toward the process is subject to sudden change, given the churning pressures competing for his attention.

China is willing to bump up purchases of US farm exports and make other concessions, but will stop short of addressing Trump's core grievances, according to reports from Bloomberg and The Financial Times.

The US dollar has initially fallen during the trading session on Thursday, reaching down towards the ¥107 level.

President Trump has an important trade meeting scheduled for Friday. -China trade talks would yield at least a partial deal, while a rise in Apple's shares lifted the technology sector.

For more than a year, the United States and China have been locked in a trade war on issues such as cybersecurity, regulations, intellectual property, subsidies and tariffs.

"The tweet.is giving market participants a reason to believe that perhaps a trade deal or at least a partial trade deal might be announced as early as tomorrow", said Robert Pavlik, chief investment strategist at SlateStone Wealth LLC in NY. The question is do I want to make a deal.

Chinese firms have bought more than 3.5 million tonnes of US soybeans since the beginning of September.

Steady escalations of the tit-for-tat tariffs on Chinese and USA goods have roiled financial markets and stoked fears of a global recession.
