The fear is that the disagreements between Beijing and Washington, D.C., could escalate, affecting Chinese buyers' ability to source soybeans from the U.S. almost 61% of U.S. soybeans are exported, with about 33% of that total - valued at more than $14 billion - consumed by China.

But Mnuchin said Sunday he's optimistic the US can reach an agreement with China that will forestall the need to impose the tariffs that Trump has ordered.

Porter reminds that "trade wars are not good for bonds, as any hit to growth is washed aside by the upward pressure [trade wars] put on inflation".
