Keep Eyes on Petrochem-Transport Stocks as Trade Talks Renewal to Make a Possible Rebound

After the U.S. President Donald Trump had met with the Chinese President Xi Jinping in an extended meeting at G20 summit in Osaka. Both leaders had agreed to cease fire and resume the trade talks from where it had been left.

One of the major point in this meeting was the lift of Huawei’s ban from the U.S. blacklist, allowing companies to buy Huawei technologies again.

Trump said that China had agreed to purchase a lot of U.S. farm products which would make ten of billions of dollars for the U.S., but the Chinese officials still had yet to confirm the matter.

The talks between delegates will continue as it used to be, though still no schedule as of now. In addition, the U.S. will also stop increasing tariffs on the remaining of Chinese goods worth $300 billion.
