What Will Trump’s Immigration Fight Cost You?

This article was originally published on ETFTrends.com.

By Harry Dent via Iris.xyz Just like investors tend to buy high and sell low, politicians tend to react to most major issues (ahem… immigration) by doing the wrong thing at the right time. It’s no secret that almost all developed countries, and China in the emerging world, are slowing in workforce and demographic growth – many outright […]

Goldman Now Sees Yuan Breaching 7 Per Dollar Within Three Months

In this article

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. expects the yuan to weaken past 7 per dollar in the next three months — a level the currency hasn’t breached in more than a decade.

The bank revised its forecasts for the yuan against the dollar because it sees the currency’s decline as a natural offset to higher U.S. tariffs, even if policymakers are reluctant to see it breach the “psychologically important level of 7.00,” strategists including New York-based Zach Pandl wrote in a June 8 note.

  • Goldman sees the yuan at 7.05, 6.95 and 6.80 in three, six and 12 months, respectively, from 6.95, 6.65 and 6.65
  • NatWest Markets’ Mansoor Mohi-uddin, a Singapore-based senior macro strategist, also said that the currency could breach 7 if a meeting between President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping this month fails to bring a trade deal

People’s Bank of China Governor Yi Gang last weekhinted that there is no line in the sand for the currency, which has fallen 2.6% since the end of April to 6.9118 per dollar on Thursday after a trade war between Beijing and Washington flared up again.

Since a weaker exchange rate makes Chinese goods cheaper, there’s a risk the trade war could spiral into a currency war. However, effective capital controls will probably limit the yuan’s depreciation, Goldman analysts said.

President Donald Trump Tweetstorm – The Sunday Edition

President Donald Trump had much to tell us on Sunday, but kept running into the 280 character limit on Twitter.

Thus, the President had his own thread, carefully laying out how the “fake media” in general, and the New York Times and CNN in particular, got it wrong on his deal with Mexico to avoid the imposition of tariffs and stem the tide of illegal immigration.

One point in particular seemed to be at the root of the tweetstorm from the co-author of The Art of the Deal: getting credit for making the Mexico agreement.  He pointed out that if his predecessor had made similar deals, “a National Holiday would be immediately declared. With me, despite our record setting Economy and all that I have done, no credit!”

The President is trying to work out that frustration on the golf links this morning. We’ll update as more observations roll in.

The tweetstorm so far:
