U.S. will crack down on all countries trying to steal its technology

China and Europe warn trade war could trigger global recession Trump planning new curbs on Chinese investment in the US - WSJ

Statement will be out not specific to China, but to all countries that are trying to steal our technology. Last week, Chinese President Xi Jinping told a group of American and European multinational chief executives that his country was planning to strike back against the latest trade actions by the US, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The CBOE Volatility index, known as Wall Street's fear gauge, spiked to its highest level in almost a month.

Even the bond market may be having an effect on investor appetite for stocks: The spread between the yield on 2-year and 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds - or the yield curve - has contracted to its slimmest level since 2007. Alphabet, the parent of Google, fell 2.6 percent, Apple lost 2.75 percent, and Amazon dropped 3.0 percent. "With respect to other countries, there's absolutely nothing on the table".

Harley-Davidson fell 6 percent after it said it will start building some motorcycles bound for Europe in factories overseas in response to tariffs by the EU.

Last Monday, President Donald Trump said he asked the United States trade representative to identify an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods for a 10 per cent tariff. Among big US movers, Intel Corp. fell 3.4 per cent, Visa Inc. fell 3.2 per cent and Boeing Co. fell 2.2 per cent.

The S&P 500 Index closed down 1.35%, which says many U.S. investors believe the worst case scenario won't happen with a trade war and I hope they're right but we're gambling with the former casino owner called Donald Trump. "Trade must be fair and no longer a one way street!"

Last month, Mnuchin said a trade war with China was "on hold" after officials of the world's two largest economies held talks in Beijing that were focused on opening more sectors of China's economy and increasing purchases of American goods.

This was seen by many as an attempt to reassure China that it was not being singled out.

Cardi B Reveals She And Offset Eloped In September
As the star recalled, the two woke up and made a decision to get married in September 2017 with a frills-free ceremony. Cardi B and Offset - who are expecting their first child together - secretly tied the knot nearly a year ago.

He said markets have misunderstood the president's plans. "The rhetoric is getting stronger rather than weaker".

Today the trade war gets serious and Trump fans have to know that their beloved leader has brought this on. "It's bad for growth", he said.

The bill would allow the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to review transfers of minority interests in companies dealing with critical infrastructure or critical technology as opposed to full acquisitions.

Meanwhile, later this week, the Treasury Department is due to unveil a proposal on investment and export restrictions.

Export controls, on the other hand, are the purview of the U.S. Commerce Department and the National Security Council. The administration is still debating some aspects of the new investment restrictions that are set to be announced on Friday, a government official said.

Bloomberg reported that the White House is planning to take a hard line, against the advice of US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

The broad-based S&P 500 shed 37.81 points (1.37 per cent) to end the day at 2,717.07, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index sank 160.81 points (2.09 per cent) to 7,532.01.
