FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) – Positive signals in the US-Chinese trade dispute made the stock exchanges in Germany and Europe legs on Tuesday afternoon and got them out of their respective loss zones. The Dax turned positive at 0.46 percent, after the leading index had previously fallen by up to 1.32 percent over the course of the day due to weak economic data. The Eurostoxx 50, for its part, gained 0.78 percent.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce announced on Tuesday that it would hold telephone trade talks with the United States in two weeks. At the same time, the United States said that planned tariffs on certain products from China should be postponed until mid-December. The trade conflict between the two countries has been weighing on global economic development for several months and is fueling ever new fears of recession among investors.

She was not looking for success or a career. "I want to sensitize people, address them, touch them. If I can do that, I’ll be happy"she said once. Now the iconic director and pioneer of auteur cinema died early Friday morning in Paris at the age of 90, as her long-time producer Cécilia Rose confirmed to the German press agency.

"I’ve never filmed the rich and wealthy"Varda said in an interview with the German press agency on her 90th birthday last year. So she tells in "Bird free" (Original title: "Sans toit ni loi") the story of a woman who travels through the south of France as a vagabond and dies coldly.

She shows moving portraits of women in "The widows of Noirmoutier" ("Quelques veuves de Noirmoutier"). A film that also reflects her own widowhood. Varda had lost her husband, the director Jacques Demy, in 1990, with whom she had regularly spent her vacation on the French Atlantic island of Noirmoutier.

"The collector" (Original title: "Les glaneurs et la glaneuse") is about people who still pick up potatoes and apples out of need after the harvest or the weekly market. In it, Varda trudges through fields and discovers a heart-shaped potato. And because a potato can be so beautiful, it has later "Patatutopia" created an installation dedicated to the potato.

Golden lion, honorary César, honorary leopard, palm d’honneur: Agnès Varda has been showered with honors and awards in her more than 60-year career. However, the trophies did not go to her head, not even the honorary Oscar in 2017.

She was a little queen on the edge of the cinema, she said in the dpa conversation. The Oscars of honor would go to people who weren’t Hollywood stars and blockbuster filmmakers. She was very touched by the fact that she was noticed.

With their documentary "Moments: faces of a journey", which she shot with the famous street artist JR, she was celebrated in Cannes in 2017. For the film, she and JR traveled through rural France in a photomobile. There they met factory workers and farmers, whose portraits they put on facades and shipping containers. The film was also nominated for an Oscar for best documentary in 2018.

Varda was born in Brussels as the daughter of a Greek and a French woman, but fled to Sète with her parents during the Second World War. In Paris she attended the Paris University of Photography and worked as a stage photographer at the first theater festival in Avignon in 1947.

As a photo reporter, she traveled through China, Africa, America and the Soviet Union. It wasn’t until the early 1950s that she approached film. With the semi-documentary short film "La Pointe-Courte" (for example: the short tip) about the life of a couple in their fishing village, she made her debut as a filmmaker and pioneer of auteur cinema in 1955. In France she became the one too "Grandmother of the Nouvelle Vague" called, the movement that ran storm against conventional narrative cinema in the 1960s.

"I say ‘Merci’"said producer Cecilia Rose. "Thank you for everything she has done, for her work, her love and her affection for other people."

NEW YORK / PARIS / FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) – Another escalation of the trade dispute between China and the USA put a heavy burden on the stock markets on Friday. The reaction was particularly pronounced on Wall Street, where the most important stock indices recently slumped by more than 1 percent each. Investors were shocked that US President Donald Trump had announced on Twitter that he would be reacting to the new retaliatory tariffs previously announced by China this Friday afternoon (Washington time).

In Europe, in response to Trump’s statements, both the EuroStoxx 50, the leading index for the Eurozone, and the German stock market barometer Dax reached daily lows. Both stock market barometers were recently just under 1 percent in the red.

China had promised new retaliatory tariffs in the trade dispute with the USA. The leadership in Beijing wants to raise additional tariffs of five to ten percent on goods with a volume of 75 billion US dollars (67.74 billion euros). The tariffs are to be raised in two steps on September 1st and December 15th.

FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) – The recent rapprochement in the US-Chinese customs dispute seems to be less and less believed by investors. After the DAX had reacted positively the day before to a postponement of US punitive tariffs on Chinese imports and the announcement of further trade talks, investors’ hopes will be over on Wednesday. The leading index began to decline again in the early afternoon, with the last minus 1.41 percent to 11,584.73 points.

The barometer is now again below the 200-day line at 11 649 points and threatens to slide to a new low since the end of March. The leading Eurozone index EuroStoxx 50 also recently fell by almost one and a half percent and in New York the Dow Jones Industrial is also expected to kick off on Wednesday significantly weaker.

Regardless of the recent rapprochement, the fundamental stumbling blocks for a stable trade agreement between the USA and the Middle Kingdom remain – and with it the trade conflict, according to the experts at Commerzbank in the morning.

Sentiment had already been dampened by weak economic data from China in the morning, where production in the industrial sector had risen more slowly in July than it had been since 2002, also due to the consequences of the trade dispute with the United States.

FRANKFURT (dpa-AFX) – VW shares continued their recovery on Thursday with a plus of 0.9 percent. The papers of the Wolfsburg were a little weaker than Continental and Daimler, but were ahead of BMW.

After VW boss Herbert Diess in a report by "Manager magazine" when "biggest Tesla fan in the car scene" was designated, rumors are circulating in the market about a possible advance by the Wolfsburg-based company in the direction of the US electric car maker. Tesla papers were more than 3 percent more expensive before the market.

Diess believe that VW "could benefit from Tesla’s battery and, above all, software expertise", a Diess confidante is quoted in the magazine. "He would get on right away if he could." The hurdle is not of a financial nature, but an approval of the major VW shareholders.

PARIS / LONDON (dpa-AFX) – Investors in Europe’s stock markets have become a little more skeptical again after the recent recovery rally. Investors reacted disappointed on Thursday to the minutes of the US Federal Reserve’s meeting on the latest key interest rate decision published the night before, said stockbrokers.

Some headwind also came from Wall Street, where the surprisingly sharp rise in the composite index of leading economic indicators in July had somewhat dampened hopes of rapid monetary policy easing to support the economy. At the beginning of August, the escalating trade dispute between China and the United States triggered economic fears and sent the stock exchanges downhill.

The EuroStoxx 50, the leading index for the Eurozone, closed 0.63 percent lower at 3373.67 points, after having risen by around 1.3 percent in the middle of the week. The Cac-40 index in Paris fell 0.87 percent on Thursday to 5388.25 points.

The London FTSE 100 lost 1.05 percent to 7128.18 points. The British benchmark index also suffered from the strong pound, which can make exports from Great Britain more expensive. On the market, the gains in the British national currency were justified with cautious optimism for a regulated Brexit. Chancellor Angela Merkel still sees opportunities for a solution with Brexit before the exit date October 31.

PARIS / LONDON (dpa-AFX) – Europe’s most important stock markets presented themselves with moderate losses during trading on Thursday. Investors would have reacted slightly disappointed to the minutes of the US Federal Reserve’s meeting on the latest key rate decision published the evening before, according to the market. In between, there was support from positive economic data from France and Germany.

The EuroStoxx 50 was quoted in the late morning 0.31 percent lower at 3384.39 points, after having risen by around 1.3 percent in the middle of the week. The Cac-40 index in Paris fell 0.51 percent on Thursday to 5407.53 points. The London FTSE 100 lost 0.67 percent to 7155.50 points.

According to analyst Milan Cutkovic from Axitrader, the members of the US Federal Reserve made the rate cut in July only as a hedge against the trade dispute. However, they did not see this as the start of a whole series of interest rate cuts. Financial market strategist Thomas Meißner from LBBW read from the minutes how uncertain the Fed actors are about how to proceed in the current macroeconomic situation. "Such an uncertainty could also break out in large key interest rate steps of 50 basis points and more, and possibly in quick succession", says Meißner.
