Best China Stocks To Watch For 2019

1. Jobs report: The US Labor Department will release the April jobs report at 8:30 a.m. ET.

Last month’s report was underwhelming. The US economy added just 103,000 jobs in March, fewer than it had in previous months, and well below economist expectations.

Economists polled by FactSet expect 190,000 new jobs for April.

2. US-China talks: Trade talks between the United States and China are wrapping up in Beijing.

The United States and China have threatened recently to impose tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of each other’s goods, and both sides are hoping enough progress will be made in the negotiations to dial down the tension.

Analysts welcomed their willingness to talk. Fears of a potential trade war between the world’s two biggest economies have weighed down on global markets in recent months.

“Continual talks and negotiations between the Trump administration officials and Chinese officials may ease tensions,” said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM.
