US-China Trade War Escalates, US Announces Additional Tariffs on Chinese Imports
US announced an additional 10% tariffs on $200B Chinese imports and, as a result, global risk appetite improved, taking Dollar to 7-week highs against the Yen and above 111 intraday.
Despite the rise in risk sentiment, markets ended Tuesday’s session mixed, either respecting technical levels, or, in some cases, simply due to yesterday’s light economic calendar.
On the flip side, today we are expecting a heavier EcoCal with Bank of Canada’s Interest Rate Statement in the spotlight.
