I wanted to touch base with you to spotlight the beginning of one of the year’s most pivotal events. Today marks the start of the 2018 G20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The summit is an annual meeting of heads of state, finance ministers, and foreign ministers of some of the world’s largest economies. Collectively, they account for approximately 85% of the gross world product. The aim of the summit is to discuss and promote international financial stability.

In the video below, I highlight a number of geopolitical events, including the pivotal meeting between Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 Summit in Argentina. Any agreement (or possible disagreement) between the two in regard to trade relations will have huge impacts on the market. Plus, there’s a quick update on the Fed’s upcoming meeting in which the decision whether to raise interest rates or not will be determined.
