Commodity focus returns to US-China trade tiff…

By Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank May 12, 2019 - Dubai, UAE It took one Sunday tweet from President Trump to shatter the relative calm across global financial markets.

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
