    Attribution is such a tough game that I am not posting this to agree with trade being the cause.
    Just a signpost that the manufacturing/economy is taking a breather whatever the reason:

    Manufacturing sector contracts for the first time in nearly a decade

    Additionally, job growth has been slipping for the last three years.
    It seems likely the long data set will show the beginning of the slowdown about mid 2017.

    I guess the thing to watch for is a stumble in the housing market.

    G7 is going on this weekend. It is always interesting what comes out. It seems that the EU might also benefit in addressing the same problems with trade issues in connection with China. The EU has contributed in building China up to a strong economy which better suits the Chinese people. No one can fault China for stepping up and changing their country for the better these past 40 years or so. Nixon and the Ping Pong games are some of the first positive changes. It is much better than Korea in the early 1950’s.

    The trade issues are where the EU and the US have similar concerns. Where these issues meet they should work together on this arrangement. No harm in that really.

    Oh, but there surely COULD be!

    Trump, the Chinese, and the EU?

    Similar to the <ethnic> who catches his wife in bed with another partner.

    Snatches a revolver from the nightstand, points it at his own head!

    Wife in a panic:
    NO! Don't shoot yourself! I really do love you more than I love him!

    Shut up, faithless bitch! I'll still have five shots, and you two are NEXT!
