The Chinese delegation signed the ‘phase-one’ trade deal on January 15th in Washington D.C.  The deal has China buying large amounts of U.S. agricultural goods.  China has also made assurances that it will begin to reform some of its longstanding and controversial practices surrounding forced technology transfers and intellectual property rights.  Should China honor their side of the agreement, the U.S. will begin to roll back some of the tariffs that have been imposed over the past 24 months.

Market Minute - January 14, 2020

by Scott Rosenquist, CFA​

The minutes from the Federal Reserve’s meeting in December were released last week and there are implications for the year ahead.  In 2019 we saw the Fed cut rates three times in response to economic weakness and trade uncertainty, which gave both the bond and equity markets a boost.  Investors should not expect multiple interest rate cuts in 2020 as the comments from the Fed seem to have set the bar high to move interest rates in either direction.
