Description:  Somewhat of a rare move you might call it; Apple has predicted a downward trend in its sales volume due largely to declining demand in China. Apple’s bad news comes amid a brewing trade dispute between China and the United States, the world’s two largest economic powers.

2) What type of year are you predicting for the Canadian economy?

3) Why do you think Apple has stopped disclosing the number of units sold?
