BOND SUMMARY: Core FI have whipsawed with investors trying to make sense of
conflicting headlines on the state of U.S.-China trade negotiations. Safe haven
assets are bid but off highs. They jumped initially as SCMP sources reported
lack of progress during deputy-level talks, but risk sentiment recovered
somewhat as the White House told CNBC they're unaware of any changes to VP Liu's
timetable. Fox was quick to cite Chinese sources as echoing points made by the
SCMP report. The White House then downplayed worries on the record before CNBC's
Tausche mentioned a "fluid situation," w/Friday talks being an "open question."
