After Trump imposes an additional $200billion in Chinese products, USDCNH popped into early July high in the Asian session and later further extended the gains in NY session. We believe the cross has entered the supply zone, worth to observe for a reversal. Now the conviction factor is low.

All we can say is AUDJPY, AUDUSD, USDCNH, and Copper prices directly associated with the Trade-War.
