China's equities dive due to American tariff deadline

On Monday, Chinese equities rebounded from their revenues hit the previous week due to the fact that worries intensify ahead of an American move to put $34 billion of duties on China’s exports.

The Chinese Yuan kept losing ground versus the evergreen buck, hitting 6.6450 in contrast with Friday’s outcome of 6.6225.

September’s Chinese 10-year treasury futures dived during the morning trading session, although reversed in the afternoon, soaring 0.1%.

Having soared the previous week to a more than one-year maximum on trade war worries, the cost to insure exposure to China’s debt slipped on Monday. As for the spread of the 5-year credit default swap rate on the Asian country’s sovereign debt, it headed south by 4.7% reaching 69.79 basis points.

Financial markets are anxious ahead of a deadline on July 6, when America is believed to put the duties on China’s exports. The Chinese government is believed to respond with duties of its own on American exports.

Even before the duties come into effect, a private poll disclosed that manufacturing activity in the world's number two economy speeded down a bit.

On Friday, Chinese equities and the Yuan rebounded with benchmark share indexes enjoying one of their best outcomes since 2016.

As a matter of fact, the blue chip CSI300 index headed south by 3.1%, the Shanghai Composite Index sank by 2.6%. Financial equities led dips, with the CSI financial sub-index losing 4%.

An index tracking healthcare companies, CSI300HC, has managed to rally about 20% this year. As for the Shanghai index, it has dived nearly 15%.

Worries as for the world's number two economy intensified after more indications of deceleration in the manufacturing sector.

The Chinese Yuan went down by 3.25% versus the greenback in June and kept diving notwithstanding a greater-than-anticipated midpoint set by the Asian country’s key financial institution on Monday.
