Investors chat near an electronic board which was turned off after China's stock markets were closed at a brokerage house in Beijing, Thursday, July 5, 2018.

Beijing has said if the U.S. follows through on its threat to impose 25 percent duties Friday on $34 billion in Chinese products, it will respond in kind. (AP Photo/Andy Wong)
