than a decade in September, knowledge showed on Tuesday, earning the
United States the newest place to experience a production
downturn amid the trade war involving Washington and Beijing.

    A lot of analysts say, on the other hand, the dollar's better produce and
the relative power of the U.S. financial system ought to make this
setback momentary.

belongings. The U.S. forex before fell to a 1-week very low of
107.06 yen.
