Today China devalued their currency and the market selloff is reminiscent of August 2015 when exactly the same thing occurred. So we’ve seen this play before.
Back then, the S&P500 dropped ~12% over a two week period. In 2015 the concern wasn’t tariffs or a Trade War, but rather a meltdown of the Chinese economy.
At this point, I’m not concerned. I think this “tit for tat” trade diplomacy is exactly that- tit of tat. And in the big scheme of things is just as insignificant as the 2015 Yuan devaluation…it took about 3 months for the market to recover.
For now I see this as another buying opportunity; although I’m waiting for a lower price. I don’t plan on making a purchase until the S&P500 breaks below its 200 day moving average…~2774.
