Chinese President Xi Jinping said President Donald Trump`s state visit is a successful and historic visit

President Donald Trump visited Asia and China last week, and what a visit it was. We all know that Mr Trump want to Make America great again, but the relationship between China and America will not only Make America great again, but also the world.

China treated Mr Trump like a pop star with red carpets, military bands, a goose-steppping honor guard of soldiers and a twenty-one gun salute to name a few. Kids were jumping up and down with American flags as Trump`s motorcade passed. They also dined with Chinese president Xi Jinping in the Forbidden City.

Mr Trump is the first foreign leader accorded that honor since the founding of the Peoples Republic in 1949. Wow!

Xi Jinping said at the end of his speech that Trump`s state visit is a successful and historic visit. What did they do?

President Donald Trump is a business man. He colaborates with a lot of business people in China and have negotiated with Chinese businesses for a long time, so he know this game. In addition; he is a great negotiator.

Before he was leaving China, he and Xi Jinping announced business deals worth $250 billion. This deal is by many called Trump “miracle” deals.

Mr Trump is trying to correct the $350 billion trade deficit between China and the U.S, and he is on the way.

President Trump withdrew the United States from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) in January this year and called it a bad deal. It seems like Mr Trump is trying to make a better deal and he is doing it for the American people.

They try to better protect labor and intellectual property rights. One TPP chapter spelled out commitments on environmental issues such as illegal wildlife trade and marine fishery protection.

Many of the other countries were not enthusiastic about the intellectual property rights and labor clauses in the original TPP agreement, because it tended to favor U.S interests.

Washington pushed for the labor, environmental and intellectual property commitments to save its own companies. Workers get paid more and treated better on average in the U.S compared to developing countries on the TPP roster.

They`re required to follow environmental laws at home, and American courts protect their trademarks, patents and copyrights. If equivalent firms in other countries avoid these practices, they can cut costs, or snag an outside trademark without paying.

This is very important for Mr Trump and the White House, and they will probably be patient and continue with its meetings regarding the best agreement possible. In the meantime, the other countries will continue its agreement without the U.S.

Mr Trump is the first foreign diplomat to be given a rare tour and private dinner in the Forbidden City since the People`s Republic of China was founded in 1949.

Donald and Melania Trump shared an afternoon tea with Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan at the Forbidden Palace Hall, and it was intentionally chosen for its historical and cultural significance that underscores cooperation between the two countries.

Mr Trump is doing everything he can to make America great again. Since he was elected a year ago, the stock market have gone straight up. Up, up, up and up. The stock market is up in all months so far this year, and that hasn`t happened in many decades. It is unbelievable.

People in America is also beginning to be very positive about the U.S economy. Consumer Confidence has gone straight up in months after months. That too, is unbelievable.

If Trumpism is the policies advocated by Donald Trump, especially those involving a rejection of the current political establishment and the vigorous pursuit of American national interests, and a controversial or outrageous statement attributed to Donald Trump, this is what it is;

TRUMPISM.

Emerging markets

It`s all green and it`s all up in the European markets today. It`s mixed in Asia. Today, everyone has their eyes on the Twitter IPO. A very risky investment for investors right now. You all know what went wrong with Facebook. Twitter is about 50% more risky than Facebook.

Befor the Twitter IPO I will write about the Emerging Markets. Three new investment opportunities today:

Turkey

GDP growth, 2013 to 2017: 21.2%.

Inflation rate: 5.4%.

Government debt as % of GDP: 36.3.

Thailand

GDP growth, 2013 to 2017: 25.9%.

Inflation rate: 2.7%.

Government debt as % of GDP: 49.4.

South Korea

GDP growth, 2013 to 2017: 22.9%.

Inflation rate: 2.9%.

Government debt as % of GDP: 27.3.

South Korea, together with Mexico and Czech Republic are among the most attractive countries. That`s because they are less reliant on foreign finance. That`s good news for investors because they don`t know what`s gonna happen in Capitol Hill and the White house.

Some of the nations in the EM`s will see more capital outflows in the next months as the investors starts to break it down to good EM`s and bad EM`s. The prospect of the Fed reducing its stimulus is a “persistent” external risk, South Korea Finance Minister Hyun Oh Seok said.

I look forward to write about Twitter tomorrow. A risky stock, and I am just waching the trading session now. News today: Crude oil inventories at 10:30am. Forecast: 1,7M.

Capitol Hill Thriller

Very often I start the day by looking at the exchanges in Asia. It gives me a picture of what mood people are in at the moment. October 17 is tomorrow and the congress do still not have an agreement about the debt limit and Obamacare. People wait and see what`s happening.

The stockexchange in Asia is mixed today. MSCI Asia Pacific didn`t move today. Nikkei 225 is up 0,1%, Topix is falling 0,08%, CSI in China is down 1,42% and Shanghai Composites are falling 1,35%.

Hang Seng are falling 0,4%, Kospi are down 0,03%, Straits Times are up 0,39%, Taiex falls 0,2% and S&P/ASX200 is up 0,14%. As you can see, there is not any big moves in Asia. What moves the markets right now is the White house and Capitol hill.

A default means higher borrowing costs for the U.S and that means a slowdown of the global economy. It`s very difficult to understand why the U.S want more expensive money? A default would be a disastrous.

People at the World Bank and I.M.F said they belived the impasse would be resolved before october 17. If so they have to hurry up. The risk is that the government do not have enough money to pay its bills, and that`s for the first time in history. They are playing a game in Capitol Hill, and for all I know, they will probably come to an agreement in the last hour. It`s a political problem.

Is this the reason that is going to break the bullish trend? If not, we have to look for the unexpected. As long as we have this financial system, there must always builds up an bubble. So, what is the next bubble?

44% of the stocks on S&P 500 are high divident yield stocks. It`s the highest since 1970, and a little bit above it`s 35% average. This is crazy. And this is so called «safe stocks»? We are at the all time high, so it`s time to be careful.

News to look at today: Crude Oil Inventories at 10:30am, Beige Book at 2:00pm.
