Friday’s Factors and Events

U.S. stock index futures declined after President Donald Trump said he is ready to put tariffs on every Chinese good coming to the U.S. if necessary.

“I’m ready to go to 500,” the president told CNBC’s Joe Kernen in a “Squawk Box” interview.

Futures fell to their lows after the airing of the interview Friday morning New York time.

“That’s going to reignite the trade-war fears,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities. “That can only complicate things in the market.”
