After a sharp rise in stock prices on Monday after the trade agreement between the US and China, investors' doubts creep in again.
"Instead of an agreement, we would call the result in Buenos Aires a stepping stone to success," said Charalambos Pissouros, senior market analyst at JFD Brokers. He hopes, however, that "through a round of negotiations, the two countries will be brought closer to a final deal that will likely make market participants happy and encourage them to increase their risk," he adds.

Worse still, a negative chain reaction is spreading from corporate bonds to high-yield bonds, leading to a "black Tuesday for ETFs hitting the US high-yield market."
3) POTUS fires Fed chief Jerome Powell off Johno Hardy, head of Saxo's FX strategy, offers this scenario: The next summer, the interest rate hike in December turned out to be bad, as the US Treasury and the stock of Wall Street fell off a cliff. Powell is being challenged by Trump in favor of Minnesota Fed President Neel Khashkari, known as the Great Enabler. Inflation rises to 6%, Fed policy remains at 1% and savers become losers.
