After White House Trade Negotiator Peter Navrro on national TV overnight replied to an interview question on Fox News regarding the trade deal’s status, markets went into a 400 point sell-off.

 “It’s over. Yes”, replied Navarro when asked if certain aspects of the deal have fallen apart.

It didn’t take long for The White House to correct that narrative, and the prospect of another ‘lockdown’ as well.

Speaking with Fox Business, the senior economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that there would “absolutely, definitely” not be a second national lockdown, reported Zero Hedge.

Markets turned around on the corrections and ended in positive territory for the day.
