WEDNESDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Major indexes have been dipping in and out of record territory in recent sessions, with investors clinging to developments over a long-awaited interim trade deal between the U.S. and China. Reports that such a deal could be delayed until December, as talks continue over terms and a venue, dented enthusiasm for stocks on Tuesday.
Strategists have been concerned that the market may be placing too much emphasis on a preliminary, or “Phase One,” trade deal coming to fruition soon.
But the mood shifted again early Thursday after Bloomberg reported China and the U.S. will cancel planned tariffs on each other’s products in stages, with the first agreement due to be signed in the next few weeks. The amount of tariff relief that’s coming will depend on what’s in that deal, said Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Feng, according to the report.
