Max Armstrong looks at some new market moves by China as it plans for a future with coronavirus

Max Armstrong shares that he's becoming more focused on product labels, and a lot comes from China. He reminds listeners that China is a huge buyer of U.S. commodities.

Government officials there were concerned about the supply pipeline if coronavirus flares up.
