USDCNH Drops, Dow Jones Pops as Trump and Xi Set to Meet at G20

Early in Tuesday's session, President Trumpannounced via Twitterthat he and Chinese President Xi Jinping would meet next week at the G-20 Summit in Osaka Japan. He added that officials from each side will begin talks prior to the meeting between the two heads of state. The development is a welcome one for markets after the two sides suffered a breakdown last month. Since then, it has been widely debated whether Trump and Xi would meet in Osaka.

The debate was put to rest when President Xi confirmed the meeting via Chinese state media but offered a more cautious tone. The Chinese President agreed both sides should keep in contact to resolve the dispute and hoped that 'the United States would treat Chinese firms with respect,'likely a reference to Huawei.Still, President Xi conceded that stalled talks were detrimental to both sides and that progress should be made if possible. In response, USDCNH dropped to 6.9055 and is on pace for its worst day in two months.
