China buys more U.S. soy as officials meet for trade talks


CHICAGO (Reuters) - Chinese importers made their third large U.S. soybean purchase in the past month on Monday, as officials from both countries meet this week for the first face-to-face talks since agreeing to a 90-day trade war truce on Dec. 1, two traders with knowledge of the deals said.

U.S. soybean exports to China, the world’s top buyer, have plummeted this season during a bitter trade dispute, with swelling supplies sending prices to near decade lows and U.S. farmers struggling to turn a profit.


China’s purchases of the 2018 harvest, estimated at around 5 million tonnes to date, is a fraction of China’s typical purchases from the United States. China last year had booked more than 23 million tonnes of U.S. soy by late December, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data.

China allows US milled rice imports


December 29, 2018


China has begun to allow imports of milled rice from the United States to meet domestic demand, with experts saying on Friday the move will enhance bilateral trade in agricultural products.


China had previously banned US rice imports owing to the absence of agricultural quarantine inspection agreements.
“The move will offer US farmers, especially those in major rice producing states such as Arkansas, Mississippi, California, Louisiana and Missouri, access to the world’s largest rice consumer,” said Ding Lixin, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences in Beijing.

Well President Obama was wrong.  That was not the new norm and many of those manufacturing jobs are back and more are on the horizon and FYI this is the real world.

 

President Trump has put fresh fuel in the American Engine and it's just firing up again.  That noise you hear is the roar of American ingenuity!!

 

 


You funny man!!! Which jobs came back?  American ingenuity would imply they were different jobs, yes?  So, which story would you like to tell?

 

God, I fear for our nation when the people who run it do not understand basic economics. 

 

Did Obama not say that the higher unemployment was to be considered the "new normal". Did the unemployment rate not go down under Trump?

 

Now - about understanding basic economics - how about understanding basic effects.

Follow the bouncing ball - we are talking about the success of President Trump's economic plan, not how the markets came back naturally from the housing boom bust.

As the markets steadily increased during Obama’s administration we were told over and over by the right that the President had no influence on the markets.

If anyone said that, they were wrong. Massive infusions of manufactured money and artificially low interest rates did improve the market - by pushing the natural adjustments off. 

Now on Trump’s watch the President is the cause of all increases according to the right but the decreases are someone else’s fault. 

Trump's actions of lowering the taxes and removing regulations have aided the markets to grow naturally.

 

I think I finally get the right’s problem - they are so dizzy from all the spinning they must do that they have no idea what it is like in the real world.

It isn't a matter of "spinning" it is a matter of understanding the markets, how they best function and what fosters their good health. Even Keynes who is often knocked by the right would not have approved of Obama's ongoing efforts and probably would have approved of Trump's.

If you will check the change from inauguration day to yesterday's closing, I believe you will see that there is no justification for all this snide negativity.


The Dow on 1/1/2016 closed at: 18,037.10

The Dow on 1/4/2019 closed at:  23,433.16

 

What are they fussing about?

 

 


Obama took office in 2009 with the DOW at 7550 and, as you can see above, left with it at 18,000+, an increase of 238%.

 

Individual-1's productivity in the financial arena gets an "F" compared to Obama's....... a mere 29%.

 

His ineptitude with finance as evidenced by his multiple bankruptcies is going to drive this economy into the ground.

As to your first comment above, you must NOT be a true-blue TRUMP SUPPORTER like you make yourself out to be on these boards.

 

First of all, it is your FEARLESS LEADER that believes HIS ACTIONS were responsible for the rise in the markets. He was told again and again by his political advisers NOT to tie his actions to the markets; but he did anyway.

 

Now, because of his actions like tariffs, trade wars, and a general disdain for him personally on an INTERNATIONAL level, we are now paying the price in our investments. Buy low, sell high may work for day traders but more people than you know have money in the stock market one way or another and this IDIOT'S actions have negatively impacted those people's savings.

 

THERE IS A REASON HE HAS MULTIPLE BANKRUPTCIES..... It wasn't BAD LUCK.

As to your second comment above about the annual returns showing positive results, it seems you've missed quite a bit of the REAL NEWS lately.

 

In the worst year IN TEN YEARS......

 

THE MARKETS IN 2018 HAD THESE RESULTS:

 

The Dow fell 5.6%.

Nasdaq fell 4%.

S&P fell 6.2%

 

The only way one might say that it was a positive year is for one to listen to INDIVIDUAL-1'S inaccuracies and lies or, for one to use the fake news outlets that INDIVIDUAL-1 uses.

The Dow is above it's point on Inauguration Day. Try concentrating on such realities instead of the nonsense like, "INDIVIDUAL-1", "Fake news", "lies", "BANKRUPTCIES". "FEARLESS LEADER", "IDIOT' and the rest of the drama.

The only head shaking should be about people who think the stock market is a rational entity that slowly and gradually shifts. It is an emotional entity very much moved by automated processes. 

Ths stock market is a very good indicator of the current and future state of the American economy and, by extension, American society.  If the market has the wildest swings in its history with a generally downward trend, It is reflecting the current and future state of America under Trump world. 


The market goes up, the market goes down. If it is left alone it is usually able to self-correct. I believe that the government cannot control it - but it can set up circumstances adverse to it (causing the housing bust) or favorable to it (more jobs).

 

In the current instance, the Apple situation is a major factor. It is based on the China's economy. Our government cannot effect that.

 

As to "Trump world" - the Dow is above it's point when President Trump was inaugurated.
