Trump questions whether Fed's Powell 'bigger enemy' of U.S. than China's Xi after Jackson Hole speech
President Donald Trump on Friday said the Federal Reserve "did nothing" after Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank is watching economic developments and will "act as appropriate." Trump, who has frequently pressed the Fed to aggressively cut interest rates, asked in a tweet, "who is our bigger enemy," Powell or Chinese President Xi Jinping, after China announced new tariffs on American products. The Dow Jones Industrial Average flipped into positive territory Friday after Powell's speech, following early losses after the China tariff news was announced.

Dow skids 500 points lower, stock market wipes out weekly gains as Trump appears to mandate that U.S. companies make products 'home'
U.S. stocks hit session lows on Friday as President Donald Trump appeared to mandate in a tweet that U.S. companies make their products at home and said he would hold a conference in the afternoon to discuss the matter. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 500 points, or 1.9% at 25,759, the S&P 500 index fell 2% at 2,865, while the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 2.3% lower at 7,806. Trump said "our great American companies" to "immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA." The losses erased weekly gains for the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq while the Dow was off 0.1%. The Trump statement comes after the Chinese ministry indicated that it was preparing to raise tariffs in two batches on $75 billion in U.S. imports on Sept. 1 and Dec. 15, which would coincide with the dates that the U.S. is slated to increase tariffs on some $300 billion in China goods.

White House's Navarro says U.S.-China talks will continue but focus should be Powell
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Friday trade talks with China would continue after Beijing announced tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. goods. Appearing on Fox Business Network, Navarro claimed China was bearing the burden of tariffs the Trump administration has imposed on its products and urged investors to instead focus on a speech by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell scheduled for 10 a.m. Eastern. Navarro said what he most wants to hear from Powell is "America, we have your back." President Donald Trump has frequently pressed the Fed to cut interest rates more aggressively. U.S. stock futures turned negative after the China tariff announcement.

Gold futures post a gain for a 4th week in a row
Gold futures rallied Friday, with China's plan for retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods helping to boost investor interest in the haven metal. "Gold is likely to be most volatile during FOMC meetings and days (like today) when we receive a barrage of tweets from President [Donald] Trump and headlines concerning global trade," said Matthew Miller, equity analyst at CFRA Research. "The news regarding China's trade retaliation and [Trump's] multiple tweets attacking the Federal Reserve are overshadowing" the Jackson Hole, Wyo., economic policy symposium, he said. December gold climbed by $29.10, or 1.9%, to settle at $1,537.60 on Comex. That was the highest most-active contract settlement since April 2013, according to FactSet data. For the week, prices were up 0.9%, following weekly gains in each of the past three weeks.
