markets have been running in equilibrium... this is not good for the world. Equilibrium predates sudden wars... uncertainty is what makes us our money nothing else... so trum being certain to cut the deficit with china is not a sabre rattling announcement, they are gonna sign documents to make that a reality...

u see , for u and me who trade FX and /or other instuments is not about what fundamentally should or not happen.
Out task is to make preferably posi-pips off how the market is or will react to reports about some low-level trade meeting that - allegedly - are preparatory steps towards a Xi and Trump november meeting as current market mood demostrated.
Seeing as who is giving orders Trump however and imo would be a fool to give audience to Xi in november.
Feel free to take a position.

The only way possible is to trade with south america and mexico, but then the spanish speaking countries in the western hemisphere are in problems, mexico has a massive drug problem and venezuela is faced with high inflation... it will take them about 10 years I feel before they will be ready to do decent business according to "the standard", brazil etc... well will they be able to supply US economic demands that may reduce china supplies?. Maybe just a little, however, I doubt... Maybe the real money folks are way ahead of the curve but that is to be seen what they do with their cash... besides that, I don't think the US government would be able to cope with assigning countless squadrons of people each allocated to ensuring exports from a specific country are up to their mark... that's a just polygamous deficit in the making, better to have a monagamous trade deficit and the chinese on top.

Sorry I meant to say, how are they gonna reduce trade levels with china whilst other countries close the supply gap with what they need to import. China is a great part of the world economy, and if china collapses then so will a major part of the world economy, anything that happens in this side of the world has repercussions on that side of the world too.
Caribbean! Rafe... 19:16:24 GMT - 08/17/2018
I don't think slashing the deficit is possible and it's not worth it to change their relationship unless of course USA wants to go begging the whole world for financing an overburdened economy on the brink of another collapse, in other words big brother now has to face the big stick. The reason to say that is while the USA touted their relationship with china as their trading partner, the USA simply started depending too heavily on them and snubbed other smaller economies: The result was was economic stagnation for many countries that had good employment levels and income from exporting to the USA. Now how they gonna restart production without a world econmic collapse taking place.

there is only ONE thing that matters
and that is President Trump getting Xi to HEEL
( to heel. (transitive, idiomatic) To compel someone to obey; to force someone into a submissive condition.)
To heel means to "stop the theft of intellectual property and to stop the forced transfer of technology” and
to improve market access for US firms and slash a $375 billion trade deficit with China

on the other hand,
smallest debt burden is bad news for those whose living standard depends on qty of interest received
so IF the debt pool shrinks, the other way to increase interest income is to charge higher rate
Mtl JP 15:49:53 GMT - 08/14/2018
this should be "good news" (i.e room for more moRE)
The debt burden of U.S. households is the smallest it’s been in nearly 16 years.
Household debt — including mortgages, credit cards, auto loans, student loans and other credit — grew for the 16th consecutive quarter in the April-to-June period, rising by 0.6%, or $82 billion, to $13.29 trillion, the New York Fed reported Tuesday.
Dollar is in MULTI YEAR bull market (probably till 2021-2022) and will test the 120 level.
smart money LOVES the dollar.
