Stocks on Monday

The United States has the largest economy in the world, followed by China. Since 2018, U.S. and China imposed tariffs on various products as part of the prolonged trade war. The dispute between the largest economies in the world created many problems for the stocks.

In October, the U.S. and China reached an agreement. Nevertheless, 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.
