China's commerce ministry on Thursday accused the United States of being "capricious" over bilateral trade issues, and warned that the interests of U.S. workers and farmers ultimately will be hurt by Washington's penchant for brandishing "big sticks". Previous trade negotiations with the United States had been constructive, but because the U.S. government is being unpredictable and challenging, Beijing has had to respond in a strong manner, commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng said in a regular briefing in Beijing. President Donald Trump threatened on Monday to hit $200 billion of Chinese imports with 10 percent tariffs if Beijing retaliates against his previous announcement to target $50 billion in imports.

Euro zone finance ministers will decide on Thursday how much cash and debt relief to give Greece in return for compliance with economic reforms, to ensure Athens can finance itself after it exits its bailout in August. Greece has been living primarily on money borrowed from euro zone governments in three bailouts since 2010, when it lost market access because of a ballooning budget deficit, huge public debt and an inefficient economy and welfare system. Euro zone governments, now Greece's main creditors, plan to look at its debt servicing costs over coming decades to smooth out any sharp peaks.

US electronics giant Apple (AAPL) was recently slapped with a fine of 9 million Australian dollars, or ~$6.7 million, by an Australian court after “Error 53” problems disabled iPhones whose screens had been repaired by a third party. According to regulators, Apple violated customers’ rights under Australian Consumer Law to repair devices. The issue first surfaced in 2016, when iPhone users that went to a third party to fix their devices for a cracked screen or a failing Touch ID-enabled home button complained that their phones became disabled and showed only an “Error 53” message.

The iPhone contributes a significant chunk to Apple’s (AAPL) annual revenues, and China (MCHI) (FXI) is the second-largest market for the iPhone after the United States (SPY) since the launch of the iPhone 6 series. However, competition from local smartphone players including Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo has significantly impacted Apple’s market share. – The U.S. dollar was roughly unchanged against its rivals Wednesday as softer U.S. economic data and a rebound in sterling kept a lid on upside momentum.
