Update (8:53 am ET): Almost immediately after Trump sent futures higher with a series of tweets touting the possibility of a deal with Beijing, the US Trade Rep’s office appeared to pour cold water on Trump’s claims by publishing a notice suggesting that Washington is sticking to its guns and raise tariffs on Friday.

  • U.S. ISSUES NOTE ON INCREASING TARIFFS ON $200B OF CHINA GOOD
  • U.S. NOTICE SAYS TARIFFS ON $200B OF CHINA GOODS GO UP FRIDAY

The notice confirmed that new tariffs would take effect on the tenth of May, and caused futures to pare some gains.

Trump also accused Beijing of trying to stall negotiations in the hopes that they might be able to negotiate a more favorable deal with Joe Biden or another “weak” Democrat. Futures and the dollar jerked higher after trending lower for most of the morning.
