Metals Demonstrate Mixed Performance as US-China Trade War Escalates

Summary:
The trade war between the United States and China continued to escalate, and metals reacted differently to that. Unsurprisingly, copper declined, while gold managed to eke out gains. Previously, the two world’s biggest economies implemented tit-for-tat tariffs on each other’s imports. Later, China signaled that it is not interested in talking with the USA, believing that Americans do not genuinely want a compromise. Now, there is a new development in the trade war. Google announced that it revokes Android licenses for Chines tech giant Huawei. While existing Android phones created by the Chinese firm will retain their functionality, it will be extremely hard for Huawei to sell new devices without such services as Google Play. Contract for delivery of gold in June gained 0.14% to ,277.5
