Investing Notes for Wednesday, October 9 2019

The blacklist of companies was meant to prompt the Chinese reaction that would and talks early and allow us to save face. The Chinese know this. They are “taking the highroad “an effort to put political pressure on Trump by restating that they want to buy American agricultural purchases in exchange for a limited deal. It’s really clever actually… But I don’t think it will work in reality. The Midwest is too patriotic, to red, and the narrative that “he rejected a crop buy offer!” to easily countered by Trump during his campaign. All he has to say is that he is not abandoning our Midwestern brothers, because the Chinese are leaving state subsidies off the table.

Hold fast, it looks like there will actually be talks on Thursday and Friday. Iron hands.
