Top Five Trade Issues Investors Should Be Watching
Total world trade is equivalent to more than half of the world’s economic output. Kleintop says that investors should keep an eye on regarding global trade: Brexit negotiations, Trump executive orders, the meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and President Trump, NAFTA renegotiations, and the RCEP trade deal which focuses on the Asia-Pacific region. So far, trade issues are evolving slowly under President Trump which is a positive for investors. The danger lies in the potential for sudden changes to policies.
