Commodity focus returns to US-China trade tiff…

The decision was taken in response to an apparent backtracking by China on almost all aspects of the trade deal. Predictably, it spooked the market and risk sentiment was hit across the board, with safe-haven US bonds and the Japanese yen being two of the few markets receiving a boost.  A record short position held in the Cboe VIX future, which tracks equity volatility as represented in the S&P 500 ......read more
