  Dollar is mixed, futures contracts are falling, and trade tensions are forecasting

The dollar fell relatively flat on Wednesday and futures on Wall Street fell as investors expected developments in US-China trade negotiations.

The talks are scheduled to continue this week, with Vice Premier Liu He arriving in Washington on Thursday

China has retreated from key parts of the trade deal

China has rewrote the text of the trade agreement to the United States with major changes to the text with regard to all major US demands, such as intellectual property rights, the transfer of coercive technology, trade secrets, competition policy, currency manipulation, access to financial services, and media reported on Wednesday.

Diplomatic sources told Reuters the 150-page document had amendments in all seven chapters and commented that China had refused to be legally bound to change policies that pushed the United States to start the trade dispute in the first place. Sources familiar with the matter said that US Trade Representative Robert Laitzer was trying to conclude a deal that was less than a trade agreement and included more punitive elements, such as deals the United States expects with Iran and North Korea.

Government newspapers do not reduce China's ability to withstand

Meanwhile, China's state-run media on Wednesday hailed the country's ability to counter the US threat to raise tariffs and blame the uncertainty surrounding the talks on Washington, calling President Donald Trump's announcement on Sunday "regrettable and against the will of the people."

Trade negotiations between the world's biggest economic powers are due to resume tomorrow when Chinese Vice Premier Liu He travels to Washington. In the meantime, the US side said it would be "regrettable" that Washington and Beijing failed to reach an agreement, in the hope that an agreement would be reached by the end of the week "one way or another."
