If you haven't heard yet (how?), trade is back in full focus once again.

President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday that an additional 10 percent tariff will be placed on Chinese-made goods beginning in on September 1. The Dow Jones Industrial average immediately felt a 600 point swing to the downside after hanging in the black for the majority of the day.

In later comments to reports, Trump said he wasn't surprised or concerned by the Dow and will continue to tax China until a trade deal can be reached.

Following the news, retail stocks took a huge hit with Best Buy (BBY) - Get Report , Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) - Get Report , Kohl's (KSS) - Get Report and Real Money Stock of the Day Nike (NKE) - Get Report among the biggest losers.

Most retailers have yet to report second quarter earnings. How will Trump's newest tariff affect retail guidance going forward?
