China has announced additional tariffs on more than 106 products imported from the US, less than twenty-four hours after President Trump presented a list of Chinese products to which he proposes to apply aggravated customs duties (about 1300 products from different sectors such as aeronautics, information and communication technologies or even robotics and machines). The number of products is lower than the list of 1300 goods presented by the US, but its value is intended to be identical, that is, 50,000 M.USD. Recalling that China had already promised to retaliate with the “same force” to the announced intention of the US to increase its customs duties on Chinese products. These news had a negative impact on several sectors of activity, but more strongly on technology companies.

Markets are increasingly beginning to interpret the actions of the President not as a final goal, but as a means of reaching an agreement with China in favor of the US. It is important to remember that Donald Trump was an author of a bestseller entitled “The Art of Negotiating” where he advocates strategies very similar to those adopted as President. In this context of tension between the US and China, the best market barometer is the DAX index. The German index is the one with a greater weight of exporting companies and Germany is the European country with the largest exposure to the Chinese economy.
