US stocks saw more deep losses Wednesday as newly announced China tariffs spooked investors amid escalating fears of a global trade war. Among the equity market's worst-hit industries were energy, industrials, and materials.
We think it is important to recognize what inpact these tarfiffs will have on the equity markets.
China will impose tariffs on more than 100 American products with a combined trading value of over $50 billion. The nation wasted no time firing back, making their announcement just hours after President Donald Trump made similar proposals on Chinese products.
The more tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 — which has been a lightning rod for market volatility in recent weeks — plunged as much as 2.1%. Meanwhile, the benchmark S&P 500 dropped as much as 1.6%, and the 30-company Dow Jones industrial average at one point slid more than 2.1%, or 510 points.
