Trade tensions are high heading into 2019, and it's not looking like the U.S. or China are going to be making any resolutions this new year. Authorities in the two countries have enacted new tariffs on products that are commonly exchanged, including cars, smartphones, and soybeans.

Bearish exchange-traded funds (ETFs) like the Daily FTSE China Bear 3X Shares (YANG) could see strength if a languishing job market has broader effects on the country's economy.
If you want someone to paint a rosy picture of the global economy, you might not want to ask French Finance and Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire. At the G-20 Finance Ministers Meeting in Fukuoka, Japan, Le Maire cited the escalation of a U.S.-China trade war as the prime culprit. “We do not have the growth figures we should have because of the trade tensions between the U.S. and China,” Le Marie said.

Two areas, in particular, are in China and robotics. While ongoing trade negotiations between the U.S. and China have the capital markets eagerly anticipating a tangible trade deal, stimulus measures by the Chinese government to prop up the domestic economy are starting to take its effect. A mix of Chinese stimulus measures have been providing the fodder for economic growth, such as lower taxes, no corporate tax breaks, monetary policy adjustments, and more market access for foreign companies to set up shop.
A meeting with high-level officials doesn't get any higher when U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will be in the same room at the G-20 Summit scheduled to take place on November 30 in Buenos Aires. An October replete with sell-offs and a start to November that saw U.S. equities rally following the conclusion of the U.S. midterm elections was followed up by the return of trade wars racking the markets. Escalating trade tensions resumed when reports surfaced that President Donald Trump is threatening to install more tariffs, particularly on vehicles manufactured overseas.
An October replete with sell-offs and a start to November that saw U.S. equities rally following the conclusion of the U.S. midterm elections was followed up by the return of trade wars racking the markets as the Dow Jones Industrial fell by as much as 500 points on Monday. Doing much of the damage was reports that U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening to install more tariffs, particularly on vehicles manufactured overseas.
