Jack Scoville, PRICE Futures Group, agrees that the markets face pressure from the news on China trade tariffs.
“It’s a twitter kind of Monday. The futures moved to the lows overnight, due to the twitter announcements about China. They then tested the lows, this morning, for the American crowd. China’s trade delegation still plans to come to the U.S. for this week’s meeting and that is supportive to the futures.
Scoville adds, “Things could get real ugly around here, if China’s folks change their minds. Both sides need a deal, so I expect one sooner or later. Specs were knee jerk sellers last night, been buying today. And the weather is still important with rains in the forecast for almost all week. Not much fieldwork will get done and for corn that is of increasing importance,” Scoville says.

Al Kluis, Kluis Advisors, says that the market is falling, due to President Trump’s announcement of raising tariffs on China.
“The pair of tweets on Sunday that President Trump would ramp up tariffs on more Chinese imports is taking the U.S., Chinese, and global stock and commodity markets sharply lower,” Kluis told customers in a daily note.
Kluis added, “Trump's threats are all about trying to get the best deal possible. A deal will get done in late May or June.”
