TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
The U.S.-China trade spat will be back in the headlines this week, as Chinese and U.S. officials will hold a second round of talks on Wednesday and Thursday. The stakes are high, as the trade tensions between the two largest economies in the world has taken a toll on the global economy and rocked world equity markets. On Monday, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he expects significant progress in the talks, but warned that the sides would have to tackle “complicated issues”. Tensions between China and the U.S. have escalated in recent weeks, with the U.S. Justice Department filing criminal charges against Huawei, a Chinese technology company. The U.S. is also trying to extradite a senior Huawei executive from Canada
