Listen: As US-China trade war simmers, impacts felt across many commodities

The US-China trade war has taken a number of twists and turns since July 6, when the US and China put into place 25% tariffs on $34 billion of each other's goods.

Most recently the two sides agreed to a 90-day truce, during which both sides will refrain from increasing or introducing any new tariffs. China also agreed to purchase more agricultural and energy products from the US.

Sophie Byron from the S&P Global Platts agriculture team, Kristin Hays from petrochemicals, Harry Weber from natural gas and Mike Fitzgerald from metals will discuss the cross-commodity implications of the ongoing US-China trade war in a roundtable discussion led by Matt Eversman of the Americas Energy News team.
