At the same time, Trump said the 25 percent USA tariffs on Chinese goods will stay in place, while an additional 7.5 percent in planned tariffs won't go ahead as planned.

Yet, stock market investors still seem a bit skeptical of news that the United States and China have reached a trade deal due to the lack of specifics offered to reporters. "They want it, and so do we!" he tweeted.

Though the response in the offshore Yuan was similar to that in the Dow Jones Index as the China trade press conference progressed owing to the ambiguity surrounding specifics of the phase one deal and because current tariffs in place will stay in effect.

"The deal requires China to make significant purchases of US agricultural and manufacturing goods while making long-overdue structural reforms to protect American entrepreneurs' intellectual property and technology", Ortiz said.

It remains to be seen whether the two country will finally reach an agreement and whether Washington applies a new increase to products from China on December 15 or not.
