    Trump’s plan to win U.S.-China trade war hits a great wall

    Following unusual calm in 2017, market volatility has increased this year primarily due to uncertainty about U.S. interest rates and increased trade tensions.  The Trump administration is seeking to fulfill campaign pledges about reducing the U.S. trade deficit via bilateral negotiations with key trading partners, and the announcement in March that the U.S. government intended to impose duties of 25% and 10%, respectively, on imports of steel and aluminum triggered a sell-off in global equity markets. Meanwhile, the administration’s focus has shifted to China, which runs the largest bilateral trade surplus with the U.S. ($375 billion in 2017).  China is also the subject of complaints by U.S. businesses about unfair trading practices relating to technology transfer, intellectual property rights and foreign investment.

A draft agreement that includes conceptual economic policies leaked earlier this week, prompting criticism from the European Union and a negative reaction in the bond market.

    ‘Greek-like crisis’ fears hang over Italy’s markets as populists ready government

    GBP/USD Megaphone Pattern Turned into a Head and Shoulders

    The GBP/USD went exactly as expected both on my LIVE trading webinars and FXstreet poll. It was a bit messy due to Megaphone pattern so we could have traded it both to the long and short side, but things have become more evident due to Head and Shoulders. 1.3425-35 and 1.3455-75 are POC zones, and we might expect rejections if the price retraces. A 1h or 4h close below 1.3400 could aim for 1.3353 and 1.3311 during the course of the week.
