Personal opinions today:
Earlier, US President Donald Trump announced that an additional 10% tariff is to be paid on the remaining $300 billion worth of Chinese imports from September 1, and it is even likely to be raised to 25%. US Non-farm payrolls were only in line with expectations but lower than last month. This time, the US President is extending the requisitioned tariffs to cover most consumer goods and electronics goods that the United States imports from China. It is difficult for the US to maintain low inflation and high growth in the future. After the trade war escalated again, the market looked forward to global economic recovery expectations. U.S. jobs are being lost and the trade war is escalating. Another slowdown in the U.S. economy could weaken the dollar and U.S. corporate earnings, triggering a new financial crisis that could shake the greenback.
