This week, Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Liu He and American envoy Robert Lighthizer sat in Washington in a new round of negotiations to put an end to the lingering trade. Since the beginning of December last year after the meeting between Trump and the Chinese leader Xi at the G20 summit in Argentina, America and China have agreed a truce that will expire on March 1 this year. Trump indicated that an extension of the deadline was not spoken. Optimism among investors that both economic superpowers are going to bury the axe of war have contributed to a revival of the stock markets since the beginning of this year.
