China offers assurance that US trade deal won’t hurt Europe – Caixin
Caixin shared comments from China’s Vice Premier Han Zheng that poured cold water on the US President Donald Trump’s projections of $100 billion sales to China.

Han made the comment in response to growing concern in Europe that the US-China accord could harm the European companies.
Given the likely ambiguous stage of the US-China trade deal despite the signing of the phase-one deal, news like this adds to the market’s current risk aversion. Even so, USD/JPY and AUD/USD register modest changes to 109.88 and 0.6845 by the press time of early Wednesday morning in Asia.
