The financial markets reactions to new round of US tariffs on China are so far rather muted. Nikkei is actually rising over 1% at the time of writing. Hong Kong HSI is down -0.72%, Singapore Strait Times is down -0.55%. China’s Shanghai SSE dipped to 2644.30 but recovered. It’s now trading down -0.12% only at 2648.5, still kept above 2638 key support level (2016 low).

In the currency markets, Dollar turns soft again after a brief lift from the trade war news. It’s trading as the weakest one together with Yen for now. Australian Dollar and New Zealand Dollar are the strongest ones.
