The US Dollar fell as expected. After the close of regular trading, President Donald Trump confirmed he will boost tariffs on Chinese imports in response to Beijing’s retaliation. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust fell over 1% following the announcement. Prospects for heightened tension rattled markets Friday, overshadowing speculation that the Federal Reserve will cut Interest Rates after Chairman Jerome Powell’s remarks. Energy and tech stocks led losses in the S&P 500 Index, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 623 points as only Boeing Co. advanced among its 30 blue-chip companies. The Nasdaq-100 Index plunged more than 3% The bond market’s U.S. recession indicator — the spread between 2- and 10-year rates — flirted with inversion again. Elsewhere in the yield curve, three-month and 10-year Treasuries hit the most-inverted level since March 2007. The greenback dropped as Trump said that “we have a very strong dollar and a very weak Fed,” fuelling chatter about a possible move to weaken the currency. Oil sank, while gold surged.
