The trade war between the United States and China has gone through some major developments. Over the weekend, the two nations came to an agreement that some of the recently implemented tariffs were going to be lowered. For example, China lowered the tariffs for several commodities such as soybeans and beef as well as on American cars where tariffs were lowered from 25 percent to 15 percent.
As a result of the lowered tariffs, Ford and GM stocks soared on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, the trend continued as the US Department of Commerce initiated an investigation into the safety issues regarding automobile imports.
