"The slowdown in the global economy is reaching this shore. And if you continue to slowdown at the rate that we've slowed down in the last two months, by the fourth quarter you could be borderline recession," said the UBS director of floor operations at the New York Stock Exchange.
President Donald Trump and China's president, Xi Jinping, are set to meet next week in Japan at the G-20 summit, where they're expected to reengage in trade talks.

"Obviously, if you're running for office, you don't want that," Cashin added.
Nuclear talks between the Trump administration and North Korea reached a stalemate in February after the two sides failed to agree on the removal of sanctions.
The Chinese could potentially strike a deal with North Korea that benefits the U.S., and ask the White House to back off on some of its trade demands, Cashin said.
