The ping pong match between the Presidents of the USA and China got serious overnight with the Fed ‘umpire’ Jay Powell having little impact on a game that’s getting out of hand!

The day kicked off with China announcing a series of tariff responses on $US75 billion worth of US goods, which includes cars. They’ll come in batches, some starting September 1 and others December 15, which looks like retaliation return of serves for the tariffs that Donald Trump announced, which affect $US300 billion worth of Chinese goods.
