Perdue: Negotiations Still Best Tool in U.S.-China Trade Row

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue on Wednesday said negotiations were the preferred method for easing trade tensions between China and the United States.

“Our first goal is to negotiate ourselves out of the saber rattling that has occurred and to make sure that these market disruptions do not have a permanent impact,” Perdue said at a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies.

If negotiations fail, Perdue said he would deploy funds authorized by the recently passed $1.3 billion spending bill to mitigate pain to American farmers caused by a trade dispute, but he did not specify which programs would be used.

Perdue admitted that he would not have used the same negotiating style as U.S. President Donald Trump, who threatened to impose $100 billion worth of tariffs on Chinese imports after Beijing announced plans to slap tariffs on 106 U.S. goods including soybeans.

He added that he was pleased that Chinese President Xi Jinping was showing some willingness to be flexible.

Xi on Tuesday promised to open the country’s economy further and lower import tariffs on products - including cars - in a speech seen as conciliatory amid rising U.S.-China trade tensions.

Following Xi’s speech U.S. President Donald Trump expressed confidence the world’s two largest economies would come through an ongoing trade spat and “make great progress together.”

Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.

To increase the profitability of any system or robot you are currently using, check out this easy and powerful ultimate solution:
