The best summation of today's events that I have seen.
Opposing talks which could lead to de-escalations between the two countries who own almost all of the nuclear warheads in the world is inexcusable and unforgivable...
This meeting with Russia’s leader, which all US presidents have done for many decades, is an objectively good thing. If you have joined in the campaign to help shove the tide of opinion away from peace and toward nuclear holocaust, you are making yourself an enemy of humanity.
I despise Donald Trump and everything he stands for, and I despise everything that created him. I hate that I have to know his fuKking name. But he is the only President of the United States right now, and he is in a unique position to help steer us away from the iceberg and avoid a confrontation that everyone on earth should want to avoid. Any possibility of that happening, however remote, should be supported.
Only ascholes and morons oppose these peace talks. If you want to help steer this ship into the iceberg of nuclear holocaust, then I want you thrown overboard. Get a fukking grip, you raving lunatics. Stop this. Stop this immediately.

The United States on Monday launched separate disputes at the World Trade Organization against China, the European Union, Canada, Mexico and Turkey. "The U.S. steel and aluminum duties imposed by President Trump earlier this year are justified under international agreements the United States and its trading partners have approved. However, retaliatory duties on U.S. exports imposed by China, the EU, Canada, Mexico and Turkey are completely without justification under international rules," the U.S. Trade Representative said in a statement.

(Reuters) - The U.S. ambassador to Germany has told German car bosses that President Donald Trump would suspend threats to impose tariffs on cars imported from the European Union if the bloc lifted duties on U.S. cars, a German newspaper reported on Wednesday.
Handelsblatt said Ambassador Richard Grenell told executives from Daimler (DAIGn.DE), Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) and BMW (BMWG.DE) during a meeting that in exchange Trump wanted the EU to annul duties on U.S. cars imported to the bloc.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The CME Group ( CME) is raising margin requirements on crude oil futures for the first time since March 4, effective the end of trading on Tuesday, May 10.
The initial margin -- the requirement for new positions -- on WTI light sweet crude futures will increase to $8,438 from $6,750 after the close on Tuesday. The maintenance margin -- the margin required for existing positions -- will increase to $6,250 from $5,000.
The margin increases are more significant than the last round of changes in early March. At that time, the initial margin for WTI futures contracts was increased from $6075 to $6750, while the maintenance margin was increased from $4500 to $5000.

James Bond heads to stop a media mogul's plan to induce war between China and the UK in order to obtain exclusive global media coverage.
Bridgewater Associates has roughly $160 billion under management, making it the largest hedge fund on the planet. Exchange-traded funds like Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets (NYSEARCA:VWO), the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEARCA:GLD), and the S&P 500 SPDR Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) head the list of top holdings.
Last week, Bridgewater said, "We are bearish on financial assets as the U.S. economy progresses toward the late cycle, liquidity has been removed, and the markets are pricing in a continuation of recent conditions despite the changing backdrop." What are Bridgewater executives chiefly worried about? A market that's entirely reliant on higher duration bonds like the 10-year U.S. Treasury bond.
In particular, should bonds with longer maturities rise much more than they already have, scores of corporate borrowers would struggle to repay debts. Meanwhile, consumers would have difficulty gaining access to credit and/or qualifying for loans. According to Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater, the credit-dependent financial system would reprice assets significantly lower.
Could the world's largest hedge fund be wrong? Certainly. On the flip side, the typical company is more leveraged today than at any time in recent memory. The sharp increase in debt at the corporate level means that companies are more vulnerable to rising borrowing costs, Federal Reserve policy error and/or a weakening global economy.

The Congressional Budget Office has hit President Trump with a double whammy in its latest report, calculating that the U.S. budget deficit will surpass $1 trillion by 2020, two years sooner than previously estimated, as tax cuts and spending increases will do little to boost long-term economic growth.
Spending will exceed revenue by $804 billion in the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, jumping from a projected $563 billion shortfall forecast in June, the non-partisan arm of Congress said in a report Monday. In fiscal 2019, the deficit will reach $981 billion, compared with an earlier projection of $689 billion.

And here the problem emerges, and why China's action has taken so many by surprise: “There simply aren’t enough soybeans in the world outside of the U.S. to meet China’s needs,” said Mark Williams, chief Asia economist at Capital Economics. “As for reducing dependence on imports, there are a few options, but none is a magic bullet that could hurt U.S. farmers without generating costs at home.”
There certainly isn't enough production at home: China grows only about 14 million tonnes of soybeans, mainly to make food for human consumption, making it especially reliant on foreign imports, and thus, the US.
In short, by crippling US soybean imports, China may have shot itself in the leg.
First, some statistics: Brazil supplied half of China’s imports last year while the United States shipped around 33 million tonnes, about a third of the total. It is replacing those U.S. tonnes that will be no easy feat, if not impossible: crops in Argentina, the world’s No. 3 producer, have been hit by a drought, cutting exports from there to less than 7 million tonnes in the 2017/18 season, its smallest in a decade, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Outside of Brazil, the United States and Argentina, about 17 million tonnes of soybeans comes from a handful of countries.

It is the presence of soybeans in the tariff list that has startled China watchers and analysts, such as Capital Economics' Julian Evans-Pritchard, who writes that "China’s rapid and aggressive response to the proposed US tariffs has raised the stakes for both sides."
What makes the inclusion of soybeans so surprising?
: for China, the world's top importer of the oilseed in the world, soybeans are considered one of the most powerful weapons in Beijing’s trade arsenal because a drop in exports to China would hurt Iowa and other farm states that backed U.S. President Donald Trump. As the chart below shows, soybeans were the biggest U.S. agricultural export to China last year at a value of $12 billion.
