WEDNESDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Trade disputes continue to rattle investor sentiment around the world. Not only is the U.S. in a tit-for-tat war of words with China on tariffs, but now the European Union is involved.

Last week, President Donald Trump threatened a 20 percent tariff on all car imports from the EU. He added that if the EU chose not to remove its duties on American vehicles, then the U.S. would have no choice but to act on those levies.

Trade tensions have since ratcheted up another notch this week following reports that Washington intended on blocking some Chinese businesses from investing in U.S. technology. However, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called the reports “fake news.”
