  • White House says it doesn’t support Taiwan independence
  • Pelosi has not confirmed any travel plans to Taiwan
  • We’ve been clear from the start that she will make her own decisions.
  • Nothing has changed in our policy towards Taiwan
  • She has the right to travel to Taiwan like other US lawmakers have
  • Nothing about Pelosi’s visit would change the status quo

Looking ahead, here are some other interesting comments:

  • China appears to be positioning itself to take further action in the coming days which could include military provocations

The White House had a list of possible provocations and said “we won’t take the bait”.

  • Firing missiles in the strait
  • Operations that “break historical norms, such as large-scale operations hall
  • Crossing the midline
  • military exercises
  • Other fallacious legal claims” on the strait

So now we have an idea of ​​what the White House thinks China’s “response” is, but at the same time we see the White House distancing itself from Pelosi.

As long as neither of these things is an open conflict, it’s not a concern for the markets.
