Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin indicates that the Trump team puts the trade war with China on hold. The interim suspension of U.S. tariffs should offer investors relief over core trade war concerns. The Sino-American trade ceasefire affirms the essential need for both sides of trade negotiators to establish a new framework in order to address bilateral trade imbalances in the future.

As a result, the major stock market indices such as Dow Jones, NYSE, NASDAQ, and AMEX, and S&P 500 reap hefty gains in recent times. However, the U.S. still expects to confirm its near-term plan of imposing steel and aluminum tariffs on the European Union.

News sources suggest that the Trump team may consider imposing another round of $50 billion to $200 billion tariffs on Chinese goods and services. Meanwhile, the Trump team demands China to commit to reducing the $335 billion trade deficit by at least $200 billion, but both sides cite no dollar figure in the key trade truce. After these direct trade talks in Washington, China agrees to significantly increase its purchases of U.S. goods and services in order to reduce the Chinese trade surplus. On balance, the fundamental issue revolves around how America induces China to comply with rigorous laws and regulations on intellectual property protection.
