Trump threatens $400 billion more in tariffs on China goodsReutersChina's Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Gao Feng attends a news conference in Beijing Tuesday.

Do you really think the threat of a trade war is causing U.S. stocks to stumble? It strikes me as though mounting trade tensions have become commentators’ latest whipping boy, conveniently available as the after-the-fact explanation for whatever the market is already doing. When the U.S. market tumbles, as it did Monday when the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) fell by more than 200 points (before recovering somewhat by the close), increasing trade war worries are blamed.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped more than 100 points today but the loss wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been.

Energy stocks, supported by rise in Brent futures, gain groundAFP/The U.S.-China trade spat is heating up. The Dow Jones Industrial Average registered its fifth straight decline Monday, but stocks broadly managed to finish above session lows as gains in energy and technology shares helped to limit declines partly inspired by fears over trade tensions between the U.S. and China.

The Dow and S&P fell modestly on Monday, ending well off session lows, as gains in energy shares helped curb declines stemming from trade war concerns after China's retaliation to U.S. tariffs. U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he was pushing ahead with tariffs on $50 billion of Chinese imports, prompting a quick response from Beijing, which said it would put duties on several American commodities.

First-quarter-earnings season is just about complete, and more than 78% of S&P 500 companies that have reported beat expectations for earnings per share.

Raphael Bostic, the president of the Atlanta Fed, said the trade concerns aren’t so high as to get businesses to scrap the projects they’re currently working on. “I began the year with a decided upside tilt to my risk profile for growth, reflecting business optimism following the passage of tax reform,” Bostic said.
