The US imposition of unilateral tariffs to combat unfair practices of the European Union, China, and other major partners initiated a war where neither side increased the tax rates since November 2018, when Chinese President Xi and Trump met.
In May 2019, Trump said he would impose additional taxes worth $325 billion for items subjected to import duties covering computers, cell phones, footwear, clothing, and other consumer goods. Mostly, the American tariffs were imposed on technology goods like:
And electronic components
And building material
In response, China imposed tariffs of 25 per cent on $50 billion worth of US imports and about 5 to 10 per cent on $60 billion worth of goods, and now, it has only $10 billion in American imports left to levy.
Canada imposed tariffs on US goods worth $12.6 billion that included:
And Mexico and the EU impose other restrictions on American imports.
Soft commodities are traded in spot and futures where the products can be bought or sold immediately, and investors can create the spot price for buy or sell orders. The price may change immediately in the liquid markets as new prices enter the marketplace.
In such trades, people deal with contracts to sell or buy at a specific price, and traders roll over their positions or close early to gain profits.
Commodities can be traded in futures where the greater potential of fluctuations and risks is present, and large price fluctuations can cause traders difficulty in predicting the market movement.
Traders can hold positions as long as they desire as spot positions have no expiry, and sometimes, it is conducted with the help of a COD where the price of the asset between the start and finish makes the contract.
There are many advantages where traders can get exposure to such markets without buying shares, ETFs, or futures.
Some commodities, like coffee and orange juice futures, have tumbled to multi-year lows amidst oversupply and low demand in both commodities. Wholesale coffee price is at the lowest since 2005, almost half of 2016.
The supplies are growing as the grinders are lowering the processing price, leading to unrestricted production. There are some global regions where coffee faces negative promotion.
Switzerland claimed the beverage has no health benefits and should not be stockpiled in thousands or tons, creating resistance among heavy buyers. In the last week in New York, futures for July contracts were at 90.60 a pound, almost at a 14-year low.
It was also hit by lowering Brazilian currency, where Brazil is one of the key producers, causing a price decline, and similar trends in the world markets led to a decline in coffee, sugar, and orange prices.
