Crop harvest rotting on the ground and farmers going bankrupt. That'll show those commies....

From your sources, many crops have been destroyed from damage (nothing to do with China).

Aditionally, insurance is present, both private and Federal since the late 1800's. Easy to get and damn near all farmers have policies. Over $100bl. in coverage through the US.

The soybean market, representing 50+ percent of agri exports to China (rest is nominal ranging 2-5 percent of all US agri products) was already known last year that China's silos are full, state subsidized for falsely supporting a demand for the soy product to use in the trade dispute. Anyone tracking futures already knew the outcome.

China's swine flu is an epidemic, full blown and buried by the Chinese through reporting (barely touched by your sources) well known long before this year. Almost all the total grain product exported to China was for feed, primarily pork....which anyone watching futures a year ago would know the demand would bottom without tariffs and China bought to capacity prior and stored last year.

If nothing's changed, it's not progress.

I must have missed all the times past presidents walked across the DMZ at north koreas request.

Yes, NOTHING has changed, not even the littlest thing.

How did that help anyone other than kim though?

Um yeah, duh, did you think your 401k was going to go up during the trade war instead of going up after?
Has it grown or shrunk since November 2016?

That's ridiculous, Chinese communism has been around for about 80 years. Government is not culture.

Dow recovers always, but is not the economic indicator most believe as a benchmark percieved as understood.
Few look beyond a plus or minus...I watched as it broke 10, dropped mid year invested today?

It's similar looking at a themometor daily believing one knows all about the world's climate, never looking beyond the dollar store thermometer..

Dow recovered some, it is down 5.47% from its recent highs.
I think this is going to be different from the May correction.
