The theatre of hardball brinksmanship has begun. We must be very, very close. Remember too, markets will always move ahead of the public announcements of government.

CNBC learned through a source that a meeting between the two leaders was "highly unlikely." China and the U.S. have until the start of March to strike a trade deal. Otherwise, additional tariffs on Chinese goods take effect. The source said a meeting between Xi and Trump could happen shortly after the deadline passes, but noted both sides have too much work ahead of them.

Earlier on Thursday, White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said China and the U.S. were still far away on striking a trade deal. "We've got a pretty sizable distance to go here," Kudlow told Fox Business, referring to the ongoing trade talks between the two largest world economies. Kudlow added President Donald Trump is "optimistic with respect to a potential trade deal."

Those punitive tariffs are set to kick in on March 1st. That's a sign we won't have anything before then because where would the public theatre of hardball brinkmanship be?

This is reminiscent of the Super 301 move the Americans used against the Japanese to put them back in their place.

HONG KONG • United States President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are considering a meeting on Feb 27 and 28 in the coastal city of Da Nang in Vietnam, the South China Morning Post reported, citing a person familiar with the discussions.

I must've missed it because I have seen no updates or closing statements for the conclusion of the Sino- US trade talks with the Australian interloper. Except for the bit where Trump said, nothing gets done until he meets with President Xi. But no date has been ascribed to that.

I guess that puts us into some kind of twilight zone.

It's been a long time since Obama declared in his SOTU address the US is in the middle of a biotech Sputnik moment.

Since then the sector has just listed onwards like a torpedo Rd ship.

It's about time Trump updated us.

Worth noting the TPP deal hasn't been ratified yet in NZ. At least not as far as I am aware. Hence the face to face trade talks between USA and China.

While Trump is tweeting on about the Chinese giving the US market access the Chinese are saying nothing about the Hong Kong dairy company I follow. The US owned forestry company NZX:RBC/Arborgen is saying and doing nothing while waiting and so are so many other companies. Pfizer included.

Nothing has changed in hundreds of years when it comes to the Infidel's foreign policy. In the early days it was go west young man. Then it was Commodore Perry and his kuro fune. It took WWII for that to succeed. Now its China and the US.

Looking for China to open their Markets not only to Financial Services, which they are now doing, but also to our Manufacturing, Farmers and other U.S. businesses and industries. Without this a deal would be unacceptable!

Hope Trump opens a window in that little office. Must be kind of stuffy with so many people squeezing around the table. Perhaps the resident Kiwi, Mr. Liddell can assist.

At the same time a high level Chinese Trade delegation is visiting Trump as well. Must be crowded in that little Oval Office.

Is there a particular purpose for the Aussie Foreign Trade Minister to be meeting Trump and not her counter part on the eve of Super Bowl and Chinese New Year?

An optimistic grouping of dates; Australia Day, Auckland Anniversary Day, Chinese New Year and the Superbowl.


And all the kids are back at school by the end of this week. Nothing ever happens during school holidays.
