China bought 500,000 tons of U.S. soybeans. But that’s just a drop in the U.S. export bucket

Chinese state-owned companies bought at least 500,000 tonnes of U.S. soybeans on Wednesday, two U.S. traders said. But the recent purchases represent just a fraction of sales American farmers have lost since the Trump administration embarked on a trade war with Beijing in July. China is the largest buyer of U.S. soy, but has purchased little since Beijing retaliated with steep tariffs on U.S. shipments on July 6 in retaliation for duties on Chinese goods.

After US-China clash at APEC, all eyes shift to the Trump-Xi meeting in Argentina

Investors will watch the upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping in Argentina for clues of any easing — or escalation — in tensions between the two countries, analysts said on Monday. Differences between the world's two biggest economies were on full display at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit over the weekend, resulting in the group's failure to agree on a joint communique for the first time in its history.

The stock market winners and losers from the midterm election results

Wall Street thinks the Democratic win in the House is a check on the White House’s aggressive trade policy, which could potentially boost names like Caterpillar and Boeing. Industrials and materials stocks could rise on an infrastructure plan between the Democrats and Trump. Drug stocks could come under pressure on a bipartisan plan to rein in drug prices.

Trump's trade war with China matters more to the market than the elections and it's not going well

Trade friction between the U.S. and China is not expected to go away for some time, even though some investors believed the post-midterm election period and a meeting in late November between President Trump and President Xi would provide an opportunity to restart negotiations. Trump said China wants to do a deal, but Xi gave no indication that China is in a hurry to strike an agreement with the U.S. in a speech Monday. The midterm elections, if Democrats win the House, could in fact fan the trade war, as empowered Democrats could see the trade differences with China as their issue.

Trump's trade war against China may have a 'perverse reaction,' says CLSA economist

Eric Fishwick, CLSA's head of economic research, said the trade war may well "have the perverse reaction" of encouraging China to build its political and economic influence. The ongoing tariffs battle between Washington and Beijing, he said, isn't just about Americans buying too many Chinese goods: It's also because the U.S. is uncomfortable with China's growing power.
