TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
European stock markets are in positive territory on Monday, despite a remarkably acrimonious G-7 meeting. The summit in Quebec lived up to the negative hype, as the “G-6 +1” was the scene of sharp disagreements between US President Donald Trump and the other six leaders. Trump openly clashed with the other leaders over his recent tariffs against the European Union and Canada and pulled back his endorsement of the traditional post-summit statement put out by the other members. The undiplomatic Trump also tweeted that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, who hosted the summit, was “dishonest and weak”. Canada and the EU are furious over recent US tariffs, especially because of Trump pushed them through on the basis of ‘national security’. The glaring cracks in G-7 unity could cast a long shadow on trade relations between the US and the “G-6”, with business confidence and capital spending at risk if the tariff spat continues.
