What’s up, fellas.
The global stock indices are trading bearish in the wake of growing trade tensions between the United States and China. The recent tweet from the POTUS has fueled the demand for haven assets.
As we discussed before, Trump shook the stock markets by threatening to impose a 10% tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and a 20% tariff on all European assembled cars entering the U.S. markets.

Trump Tweets

During the weekend, Trump asserted via Twitter that “all countries that have placed artificial trade barriers and tariffs on goods going into their country remove those barriers and tariffs or be met with more than reciprocity.”
S&P 500 has formed a descending triangle pattern on the 2-hour chart which is supporting the index near $2,745. Typically, the descending triangle patterns break on the lower side. Let’s see what happens today.
