News about China is hitting the headlines lately… And it all seems bad.
But our regular American Consequences feature contributor Dr. Steve Sjuggerud just returned from China…
To share what he saw there, he’s putting together an emergency briefing tomorrow, May 30, at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
During this China Emergency Briefing, Steve plans to discuss the crucial events taking shape in the Chinese markets right now… and what they mean for you as an investor no matter whether you own China or not.
And he’s also going to give away one trade that he sees as the perfect way to profit from the U.S.-China trade war.
