Wall Street pressured as tariff deadline nears

US indices extended recent declines, as uncertainty surrounding today’s tariff deadline took hold. Will Trump pull the trigger and raise tariffs from 10% to 25% on Chinese goods? China shares have suffered more than Wall Street under the threat.

  • The US30 index fell to the lowest level since March 27 as a lack of news on the trade negotiation front exacerbated weakness from the tariff deadline
  • The decline stalled at the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the December-May rally at 25,486. The index rebounded into the close but still ended in the red
  • US consumer prices probably rose at a marginally faster pace of 2.1% y/y in April, from +1.9% in March. Speeches from Fed’s Brainard and Bostic are scheduled, but will no doubt be overshadowed by developments after the tariff deadline.
