Here’s How to Generate Huge Returns From Trump’s Trade War


As if there hasn’t been enough political and economic news lately – now we have a trade war to contemplate. In case you haven’t been following, the current administration is imposing a 25% tariff on steel imports and 10% on aluminum imports. Non-US steel producing countries are sure to follow suit with their own tariffs, and thus a trade war is born.

Generally speaking, a trade war isn’t a good thing for the global economy. It may protect (or even create) jobs in the short-term, but in the longer-term other jobs will be lost somewhere else. In a zero-sum game, someone is going to be losing somewhere.

In the meantime, the new tariffs are roiling the financial markets. At the very least, we can try to find a way to profit from the stock market swings taking place as investors digest the implications of a trade war.

Of course, domestic steel and aluminum companies, at least the ones that source their raw material from the US, are attracting buyers. The whole point of these types of tariffs is to get buyers to purchase goods from local companies. It makes sense that a company like US Steel (NYSE: X) would go up on the news, for instance.
