  • U.S. trade policy
    towards China over the next
    few years will become more confrontational, according to a
  • same survey showed the Federal Reserve will raise rates three times next year compared with just two in a poll taken only a month ago

Some of the comments:

  • “The fiscal support for the U.S. economy will start to fade through 2019,” noted James Knightley, chief international economist at ING. “Moreover, the strong U.S. dollar and gradual increases in interest rates will act as a brake on growth while trade uncertainty and emerging market fragility could also contribute to a gradual slowdown.” 
  • The trade war “will continue to escalate,” said Andrew Hunter, economist at Capital Economics. “There are potential talks between President Trump and (Chinese President) Xi (Jinping) planned for the G20 summit next month, but at the moment we wouldn’t hold much hope” for a deal, he added.
