FRIDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Market focus is largely attuned to concerns over global trade, a week before initial U.S. and Chinese tariffs are due to take effect. President Donald Trump’s administration is set to activate tariffs on Chinese goods worth around $34 billion on July 6, which is then widely expected to trigger a tit-for-tat response from Beijing.

The escalating trade dispute between the U.S. and other major economies also cast doubt on future crude demand growth, with oil prices mixed on Friday morning. International benchmark Brent crude traded at $78.25 a barrel during early morning deals, up 0.5 percent, while U.S. WTI stood at $73.32 a barrel, down around 0.2 percent.
