Currency performance diverged amid anticipation

The major currencies recorded mixed trading on Thursday as traders watched the tug of war over the China -US trade war.                       

China said on Thursday it had kept its promises in trade talks with the United States, rejecting US accusations that it was backtracking on its commitments. "The United States has made many classifications, such as backtracking, backtracking, etc. Many promises have been made on China," Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng told a news conference. "The Chinese side has kept its promises and this has not changed."

Citigroup: US tariffs will shrink China's growth

Citigroup Global Markets forecast that the increase in tariffs on Chinese goods will reduce the growth rate of the world's second-largest economy by 0.5 percent over a year or two, and the impact could more than double if all shipments to the United States are charged.

The lifting of tariffs on Chinese goods worth $ 200 billion to 25 percent from 10 percent on Friday could cut global growth by 0.2 percent over the same period, Citigroup economist Cesar Rojas said in a note yesterday. The impact on global growth could also be doubled if trade duties were imposed by 25 percent on all remaining Chinese imports.
