In the race to be the first to report a story, we’ve seen several media outlets erroneously report on the US/China trade situation recently. In fact, we were talking about this exact same thing in the last video on Thursday.
It appears another instance of “fake news” occurred today as senior Trump administration officials denied a report by the Financial Times that trade prep meetings with China this week had been cancelled. Markets had previously sold off around the noon hour before recovering somewhat prior to the close.
