Global Markets: Markets watching Helsinki meeting

By Dave Sims, Commodity News Service Canada

WINNIPEG, July 16 (CNS) – Investors around the world are
closely watching talks this week between U.S. President Donald
Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two leaders are
meeting in Helsinki where the issues of trade are expected to be
front and center. What’s unclear is whether Trump will raise the
issue of alleged Russian meddling in the latest U.S. election.
Last week the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian
intelligence agents on hacking charges.
China has launched a challenge against tariffs imposed on
it by the United States. China filed the measure with the World
Trade Organization, just a week after the U.S. announced it was
going to slap a 10 per cent tariff on US$200 billion worth of
Chinese goods.
Energy giant Linde has decided to sell its assets in the
U.S. as part of its merger with rival Praxair. The move is being
made to clear regulatory hurdles in both Europe and the U.S. The
assets will be purchased by buyout company CVC and gases firm
Messer.
