Trade tariff troubles ...
Columbia Threadneedle

It has been a busy couple of weeks in terms of economic data releases, though core government bond markets have not moved appreciably on this type of news. Rising trade tension rhetoric between the US and China, as well as the imposition of trade tariffs by the US, has been the stronger force in terms of market direction. This uncertainty has supported core government bond prices – though it was a more difficult period for risk assets such as credit and equities.
