BOND SUMMARY
BOND SUMMARY: Trade war headlines dominated the airwaves in Asia, with little
notable news flow elsewhere. Firstly, Pres. Trump provided a gesture of goodwill
to China in the form of a 2-week delay to the next round of tariffs to be levied
on Chinese goods. This was followed up by a BBG report suggesting that "China
may allow companies to resume purchases of U.S. agricultural products in a show
of goodwill ahead of upcoming trade talks between the two countries."
