Deal or no deal?

With no trade deal on the horizon, investors who are anxious about the possibility of getting a trade deal may be wondering what they need to do to protect their portfolios. 

And investors aren't the only ones who are feeling iffy about actually getting a trade deal.

When asked in an interview when Invesco's Chief Global Market Strategist, Kristina Hooper, expects a trade deal, she answered, "On the fifth of never."

And, if there's not a trade deal, Hooper's got some advice for investors who are feeling anxious. 

"Well, I would just say to expect more volatility. The reality is that because the Fed is turned more dovish, there is still a bias towards risk assets. So you want to be well-diversified, but certainly, have that exposure to risk assets. Don't be afraid of them because of the trade situation, but just recognize that there's going to be a lot more volatility and that includes volatility to the downside at times because of the trade situation," answered Hooper.
