The Dow Jones Industrial average bounced back in late-afternoon trading Tuesday; recovering from the worst drop in 2019 after China “manipulated” their currency to impact global markets.
“The Dow Jones Industrial Average rebounded Tuesday 300 points in late afternoon trading, one day after the major indexes posted their worst day of the year. China pegged its yuan inside the 7 mark after the Treasury labeled the country a currency manipulator,” reports financial website The Street.
“The Dow Jones Industrial Average, which finished down 767 points in the previous session, was up 302 points, or 1.18%, to 26,020. The S&P 500 rose 1.35%, and the Nasdaq climbed 1.47%,” adds the site. “The move from the People’s Bank of China was seen as an attempt to ease tensions between the world’s two biggest economies as their ongoing trade dispute threatens global-growth prospects.”

This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States. Details of the agreement will be released shortly by the State Department.
