Stocks and trade disputesStocks on December 9

The trade war between the U.S. and China remains one of the biggest problems for the economy. U.S. and China reached an agreement in October. However, the date when leaders of the U.S. and China will sign the “Phase one” trade deal remains unknown.

In less than one week, the U.S. will impose additional tariffs on Chinese exports. It means that the U.S. and China should work faster to avoid this scenario. The continued decline in Chinese trade shows that trade disputes with the U.S. had a serious impact on China’s exports.
