DOWJONES - 05 September 2018


Fundamental Highlights

U.S. equities started September on a weak note with all indices closing lower. The key focus for investors was the trade tensions with the U.S. scheduled to restart negotiations with its northern neighbor which could lead to revising the North American Free Trade Agreement. Markets will continue to keep an eye out for any additional trade news as usual. The U.S. also indicated that the tariffs on an additional $200 billion in Chinese goods will begin this Thursday with China likely to retaliate in kind.
