        * European indices should start on a cautious note
    * Asian markets hesitant
    * USA and China resume negotiations at the highest level
    * The chances of an agreement, even partial, difficult to evaluate

expected on a hesitant note Thursday at the opening, investors struggling
to sort through a flow of sometimes contradictory information about
the evolution of trade talks between the United States and China.
    According to the first indications available, the CAC 40 in Paris
could begin virtually unchanged while the Dax in Frankfurt
would give up 16 points, just over 0.1%, and the FTSE in London
would give up 11 points (0.15%).
    The highest US and Chinese officials in charge of the file of the
commercial war end up in Washington for the first time since late
July for a bargaining session meant to last two days. Wednesday,
Donald Trump spoke of "great chances" to reach an agreement but the tone is
less optimistic in China: under cover of anonymity, a Chinese official
informed of the preparations for the discussions felt that reaching a compromise
would be "not an easy task".
    The Hong Kong daily South China Morning Post reported that
Chinese delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Liu He would leave
Washington on Thursday, after only one day of talks. But in a
tweet, a CNBC reporter later reported that the House
white was unaware of any program changes.
    For its part, the New York Times writes that the United States is preparing to
allow some US companies to supply products
"non-sensitive" to Huawei's Chinese network equipment group.
As for the Bloomberg agency, it evokes the will of the White House of
conclude with Beijing a partial agreement on foreign exchange.
    China remains under threat of 30% increase in tariffs
about 250 billion products imported into the United States
from the 15th of October.
    "There is a lot of information circulating, some negative, others
positive ", summarizes Stuart Oakley, head of currency flow at Nomura in
Singapore. "We will definitely be fixed on the result of all this Tuesday
next at midnight (Washington time) because that's when we'll know if
the next wave of customs duties is applied or postponed. "
