 Dollar decline as risk of trade war rises after Chinese pledges

The US dollar fell against its major counterparts in the early European session on Friday, ahead of today's US jobs report, as jobs are expected to rise by 164,000 jobs in July after a 224,000 increase in June.
Unemployment is expected to remain at 3.7 per cent.

Return of ghost trade war

The US-China trade dispute intensified after Beijing threatened to impose countermeasures if Washington continued to raise planned tariffs. China's Ministry of Commerce said it would take appropriate countermeasures to defend firmly its core interests. The Beijing Declaration came in response to Trump's decision to impose a 10% tariff on $ 300 billion of Chinese imports from September 1. Additional charges will cover all goods imported from China to the United States.

Trump's decision came after the suspension of trade talks in Beijing, where the US president blamed Chinese President Xi Jinping for breaking his promise to buy US agricultural goods.

President Donald Trump's announcement yesterday that new tariffs on Chinese imports could prompt the Fed to take another curve that could force it to cut interest rates more than it had hoped to protect the US economy from the risks of trade policy. "This step increases the risk that the Fed will cut interest rates by more than 75 basis points in gross terms this year," Deutsche Bank chief economist Britt Ryan said in a note to customers.
