@Leon A trade war with #China will let them focus even more on the "Silk Road" and business with the Asian countries, Russia and Tehran / Middle East. Apart from that, every road they build inside China and all the investments in local infrastructure will effect domestic consumers and goods. China doesn't need the US, its the other way around. #tradewar

@Leon I wonder, how desperate and empty inside are people feeling that they have to praise #Trump as the most glorious leader and healer to economical and financial mismanagement and maladministration in the U.S.? Wasn't it Obama who could walk on waters? What kind of peace has he brought to the world? So is it utter stupidity or an extrem over-estimation of one single persons ability to "triple our GDP in his first week in office"? Ever thought about the competitiveness of U.S.products (which ones??) in a rising #dollar environment? .. and a #Fed ahead of three more rate hikes in 2017? Who ought to finance the infrastructure projects if not the #Chinese via their trade surplus' while #Europe is on the brink to financial and political collapse? How long does it take to put all the good intentions and #election promises from words into action, from the first cut of the spate up to people's salary? This will all end in tears and even more frustration about our glorious leaders! A bit more grounding in ones own abilities wouldn't be the worst advise to weather the storm. #politics #tradewar #bondcrash

@Leon Beijing should know that a #Trump tweet does not necessarily mean a change in policy. ..his policy will be guided much less by a realist logic of great power rivalry. This should lead to cautious optimism for Sino-US relations in the next four years. #tradewar #China #politics www.scmp.com/comment/insight-opinion/article/2058723/how-trumps-america-first-approach-can-ease-great-power

@Leon We should be very careful in not falling into the wishful thinking trap with #Trump as many of us did with #Obama. #tradeWar #healthCare #economicRecovery #TrumpRally #nationalDebt #GoldmanSachs Mnuchin Cohn #fillingTHEswamp

@Leon I've always seen #Trump as a figure of fun in opposition to #Hillary as a corrupt war-monger. Now it seems the new administration is killing several birds with one "trump". #fillTHEswamp with Cohn, Mnuchin and the Goldman Sachses, and not just a #tradeWar with #China but a real one as well. I'm sooo fed up with another US-elephant in the room!! #politics www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-12/china-daily-tillersons-disastrous-actions-would-set-course-devastating-confrontation

@Leon Mexico is only the fourth-largest trade partner with the U.S. - Investors in #China, Germany and Japan should be very closely watching how the negotiations with #Mexico play out. #tradeWar #equities #commodities https://twitter.com/NathanielParish/status/825000702481203200 https://twitter.com/NathanielParish

@Leon Stocks are ignoring the stress in other assets, with equity volatility measures plunging. The markets are full of counterintuitive price actions and red alerts are flashing everywhere !!! #bondCrash #tradeWar #currencyWar https://heisenbergreport.com/2017/01/27/a-perma-bull-turns-bearish-im-worried/

@Leon I wonder if all the enthusiasts stay "Looooong on Trump and a 2020 re-election" when the markets are going to crash in February 2017 and erase all their Hopium profits within minutes. #bondCrash #currencyWar #tradeWar

@Leon We are already seeing serious financial dislocations due to an accelerating #tradeWar and increased global inflationary pressure. This is just more fuel for the #silver market fire ahead. #inflation #gold www.srsroccoreport.com/big-movement-ahead-in-the-silver-market-serious-trouble-in-paper-markets www.youtube.com/watch?v=vud-igCeOkI+

@Leon It's amateur hour in Washington :-) A trade deficit isn't the result of unfair foreign competition but the result of monetary expansion, of $$$ printing, of QE's, of Petro Dollars! Such unsound money has created a demand for imported goods the US was not able to produce. It's the cheat factor of #fiat currencies that's responsible for trade imbalances, not unfair competition from China, Germany, Japan or #Mexico. With #Trump's border taxes America is triggering a rerun of the 1930s depression. "The greatest threat to world trade comes not from the break-up of the #EU, nor from #China. It appears to be Trump's lack of understanding of why trade imbalances exist, and his wrongheaded policy of American #protectionism." ~ Alasdair Macleod #gold #commodities #tradeWar #currencyWar https://mises.org/blog/what-trump-means-brexit-china-and-eu
