    Key takeaways:

    • Trade tensions escalated after China announced additional tariffs on US goods and the US retaliated with an increase in tariffs on Chinese imports
    • Meanwhile, Fed Chair Powell refrained from providing a clear steer on future interest rate policy, but reiterated the Fed will act as appropriate to sustain growth
