Investment, done effectively, involves anticipating a trend so you can enter and exit at the right moment while the crowd rides waves of panic and greed. That means paying close attention to the variables that move the needle on your investment.
Massive trade tariffs are exactly the sort of thing that can move a needle… and an American president is directly empowered to make executive decisions in that area.
So when the front-runner from one party (who is trending up in the polls) makes an offhanded statement on a Sunday morning show about massive changes to international tariffs — investors will react to that.
This is exactly what the latest massive one-day drop in China’s markets was attributed to.
The relentless slide in Chinese stocks, which had seen them underperform Wall St equivalents by more than 20% over the past three months alone, has snowballed amid foreign capital flight, tense geopolitics and deepening domestic deflation due to a property bust the government is struggling to stabilise.
The rout was spurred this week after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would impose tariffs on China again if he is elected in November and they could exceed 60%.

A weak president quickly becomes a doormat for other countries to exploit. (We have proof!) But a strong one? With a strong leader in office, a foreign nation could have no better friend and no worse enemy than America.
And that’s exactly how it OUGHT to be.
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
