In Taiwan authorities announced China’s storming of the island’s territorial airspace

 

after the threats I mentioned earlier regarding the infringement of the principle of China One by the United States.

China has not only intensified its sanctions on the island of Taiwan,
including restrictions on imports of fish and fruit from Taiwan.

 

Chinese reports said that it discovered traces of the coronavirus in some frozen fish products in June.
The ban affected building materials by preventing the export of natural sand used in construction operations,
but so far these sanctions still do not affect the Taiwanese economy.

 

U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi’s two-day visit ended on Wednesday,
amid rising tensions between Washington and Beijing.

 

The effects of the visit events on the markets

 

Investors are cautiously anticipating the reaction of the Chinese side to Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan,
where it is expected that China will use its vast holdings of Treasury bonds as a weapon.
However, the assets that investors resort to as a safe haven witnessed great fluctuations despite the calm concerns
about the military response from China.
And US bonds were sold off, with the sudden shift in the yen,
which fell by more than 1% during Tuesday’s trading,
and some stocks and futures contracts are also still stable and trying to gain upward momentum.

and gasoline inventories in the United States recorded an increase of about 200,000 barrels,
as a result of the decline in gasoline demand rates by the Americans.

 

Oil prices are still under the pressure of concern about Corona
after the increasing number of infected people in Adel from countries,
including Japan, and the spread of the epidemic will lead again to restrictions in order to reduce the disease,
and thus will affect demand by weakness, causing a further decline in oil prices.
