The 3 trade numbers

Here are the 3 trade numbers that show that a trade war is less most probably.

• In 2017, the U.S. imported $506 billion worth of goods from China.

• Trump is speaking about tariffs on only a small fraction within the range of $50 billion-$60 billion.

• China’s response may be very vulnerable. In a tit-for-tat, China would have proposed duties on U.S. goods worth around the same quantity. Instead, China is proposing duties on $3 billion worth of goods.

The previous call

The Arora Report raised money previous to the 1,100-point drop within the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +2.84%

The Arora Report in the past mentioned: “When the VUD indicator is very adverse over a time frame, it units the market up for a bounce. If the market used to be no longer so top and trade war issues weren't there, the interpretation of the chart would have been that the market is within the means of retesting February lows and then more likely to bounce [higher]. However, given the prospect of a trade war and the fact that the VUD indicator may be very adverse but no longer extremely adverse, buyers should take some defensive steps.”

In the massive picture, that decision remains to be legitimate.
