China investor risks grow as Trump expands trade war

Economy faces bleak 2019 with Beijing's stimulus moves set to lose force

| China

Mike Pence does not normally factor into investment decisions in Asia. But the U.S. vice president has just answered the biggest question in the markets: When might Donald Trump call a truce in his China trade war?

Pence's references to tensions in the South China Sea came days after a close encounter between U.S. and Chinese naval vessels. His accusations of Chinese meddling in next month's Congressional elections opens another theater for investors to fret over.
